The antique Sicilian manor house, an expression of the first eclecticism-liberty style in Messina, is situated in the heart of the Peloritani Mountains, but at the same time it has an extraordinary panorama of the Mediterranean Sea and the Aeolian Islands. The origin of the elegant, refined feudal agricultural estate dates from the middle of the 16th century when it was built by the baron family Musolino, who made it their abode and strategic stronghold. Various alterations and additions were made over the centuries, but during the earthquake in 1908, the manor house was severely damaged and was subsequently abandoned by the family.
Around 1913 the estate was sold to engineer Carmelo Salvato. During the successive two years the manor house as it stands today was completed with the best technological standards of the time. In 1962 the estate was sold to the Rodriquez family, who in a short time transformed it into a nursery farm dedicated to camellia production.
Today, after impressive restructure, the Manor House estate is reborn as a Country House with a unique, commendable Eco-Park dedicated to wellbeing both physical and spiritual, with particular attention to healthy nourishment, thanks to the new bio agricultural company.
