It is a Home Relais, about 35 square meters, consisting of a room, and a bathroom. The main room, hosts TWO single beds, which on request, are used as a single bed, with wooden headboard. BATHROOM with Shower, handcrafted washbasin. Insights on: Vincenzo BELLINI Born in Catania in 1803, Composer and Musician, to whom the most important theater of the City of Etna is entitled. Bellini's music is a singular combination of classicism and romanticism. Classicist was the training received in Naples, based on the models of the Neapolitan opera school, Haydn and Mozart, and also a personal tendency to poetic values such as harmony and composure. Romantic was the pathos of his works. at the age of seven he already composed, among other things, a Tantum ergo and a Salve Regina. Eighteen years old, he went to Naples where he completed his studies in three years. Six symphonies (Italian, in a single time) belong to this period, two masses, one cantata and various romances. In 1825, at the theater of the conservatory of S. Sebastiano, B. gave his first work, Adelson and Salvini, and in 1826, at S. Carlo, the second, Bianca and Fernando. In 1827 a new work, commissioned by the impresario Barbaia for La Scala in Milan, Il Pirata (on the text of F. Romani, who became a fraternal friend and collaborator), aroused enthusiasm in Milanese circles. In 1828 he resumed in Genoa Bianca and Fernando (reworked) and this also received great applause, as then (1829) a new work, on the text of the Romans, La Straniera, at the Teatro alla Scala. Honors began for him, but also envies and slanders. Unfortunately he himself seemed to justify them, giving (1829 to Parma) a hasty Zaira (text of the Romani), condemned by the public. The revenge came immediately with I Capuleti and Montecchi (Venice, 1830), and above all with La Sonnambula represented in 1831 at the Carcano of Milan with a triumphal outcome. A failure instead had the Norma (always on the text of the Romani, composed and represented in 1831 at the scale), but the work was then greeted with enthusiasm in Milan itself, in Bergamo, etc. It followed (1833) to the Fenice of Venice, with little success, the Beatrice di Tenda. In 1833 B. was invited to direct his works in London and Paris. In London triumphed the Norm; in Paris (1834), his works were applauded and the B. enjoyed a brief moment of happiness: the love of Maria Malibran, the friendship and esteem of the greatest artists and poets (among whom G. Rossini and H Heine). At Puteaux (1834), with meditated slowness he composed the Puritans, on a libretto by C. Pepoli, represented at the Théâtre italien in Paris in 1835, with a triumphal outcome. Eight months later B. died. A more lyrical and dramatic art, that of B., with a pure and limpid melodic line, stripped of extrinsic complexity, where harmonies, counterpoints and instrumental effects have value only as a function of singing. Casa Vincenzo Bellini is integrated into a Tourist Quarter: Case al Borgo, in Agira, which offers accommodation in 6 mini-apartments integrated into the native Santa Maria district, at the foot of a hill topped by a 12th-century castle. the sight of the view is breathtaking. Any landscape is a state of mind. Food & Beverage: there is a restaurant that offers dishes with typical products made to the minute. A slow and relaxed eating. Intense flavors, bright colors, variety of products: the variegated civilizations that have dominated the island have left traces of their passage even in the culinary tradition. In the dishes of Sicily we find the simplicity of the products of the nature of Sicans and Sicels, the Arabian inspiration, the echo of the pomp and refinement of the ancient Bourbon courts, a combination that anyone wants to try, a temptation that is difficult to give up. There is a beautiful garden and a seasonal swimming pool with free access for customers, ideal for cooling off on hot Sicilian summer days. ...

Situated at the top of Agira, this BnB offers incredible panoramic views of the valley from the rooms themselves, as well as the public spaces. The staff are professional and helpful, and the breakfast included local treats, such as the famous cassatella.

How to get there
How to get to Borgo houses: over the signs that you will find along the way once you get to Agira, you may want to consult a browser or Google Maps to insert three different addresses: enter in the next way to first "Via Diodorea" once arrived at its destination enter "Piazza Roma" and finally "Via San Nicola", at the end of the road, which will act as a car park (not private, but adjacent to the structure) will be present indications and signs of "Welcome".
