It’s easy to be happy in Sicily because we have everything...

except the rest! But “Giucalem” known as “La casa negli Orti” – The House in the Orchards takes its name from the members of Giuseppe’s family, his wife Meluccia and his sons Calogero and Alessandro, is totally surrounded by nature among orchards and vegetable gardens and overlooking a wood.

In spring the air is full of an orange blossom fragrance.
The B & B is a comfortable place aimed especially to those people who are in search of peace and quiet.
It’s just 1 km away from the city’s historical centre and 3 km away from the World’s Heritage Mosaics Roman Villa del Casale, famous all over the world.
Tasting and purchase of local products like extra-virgin olive oil, different flavours of home – made jams, flavoured bread (pane cunzato) and dried tomatoes- plain or flavoured.
B&B Giucalem is personally run by Giuseppe’s family and Mamma Maria with lots of courtesy and homeliness.
Proof of such warm hospitality can be found in various comments on the website: Trip Advisor and BB Planet, which are totally sincere and disinterested.
The building has availability of 5 rooms with en suite bathroom, centralized heating and air-conditioning.

The idea

Giucalem ... what a strange name! You know that even the quirks have a logic? Well yes. The Giucalem name contains a great love ... or rather two. It takes two loves to explain that strange things are not so strange.
A Palagonia, a small village in the province of Catania, lived a beautiful mare. His proud and haughty gait did fall in love with anyone who looked at her, then I figured if they were watching her two children who love nature and animals.
Two children, Calogero and Alessandro, together with two parents, Joseph and Meluccia, pushed up a day in Palagonia looking for a horse to buy. There was no need to look around ... their eyes pointed straight at that majestic specimen ... and it was love.
The Dear family, happy shopping, returned to Piazza Armerina and after a few days the mare ran among the green meadows with the mane to the wind and the children after him.
"It 's mine," said Calogero. "No! And 'my "screamed Alexander. "But it is our" ribattevano Meluccia and Joseph.
Whose was it, then, the mare? Obviously all of you say, right. "And now let's give it a name that expresses our love for the horse and for our family," began Joseph. But which?
And 'Just a small stroke of genius to put all agree: Jun ... Cale ... M. Joseph, Calogero, Alessandro, Meluccia and an M for mother Maria, that all their names together to create one just completely new, with a love for the filly and for their B & B Giucalem.
