A stroll surrounded by nature, and a dip in fresh waters.

The Cassibile pools

The Cava Grande canyon on the Cassibile River is one of the most spectacular sights of Sicily, and is just a short distance from i Carusi boutique hotel. Unspoilt nature combines here in a perfect marriage with the thousands of years of history and culture in this corner of the island. Cava Grande preserves among its rocks two vast settlements, with water mills, mule tracks, rock stairways, ancient roads and more. Our advice is to take your swimming gear, because as you continue your walk to the bottom of the valley, the view opens up unexpectedly on a series of circular pools suitable for bathing. The Cava Grande pools are enchanting, in a particular natural setting where you can experience some special, unforgettable moments of complete relaxation during your holiday in Val di Noto, as our guests at i Carusi.

From old Noto to unspoilt nature

Carosello pools

The Carosello pools are a little known, and therefore uncrowded destination, where you can spend time completely relaxed among the green trees and the green waters. Outings to the Carosello pools are also suitable for families with children. Go to the boutique hotel reception for suggestions about the best route for you to take, and get ready for an unforgettable experience.

From the ruins of old Noto to a magnificent oasis. Passing the remains of the Royal castle, a fairly steep path will open up ahead: but it's worth the walk, once you arrive at the Valle del Carosello, your tiredness will be rewarded. On the way you will pass through breath-taking landscapes, listening to the sounds of the river, surrounded by wild and beautiful nature, your nostrils filled with the perfume of mint and wild fennel, down to the bottom of the valley where you will find two wonderful pools for bathing.
