Castello Xirumi – Serravalle

Dating back to the XVI century, situated in one of Sicily’s largest citrus groves, the Xirumi-Serravalle castle is in a privileged position, just minutes from Catania, Siracusa, Caltagirone and Ragusa, and about an hour from Taormina. The internal and external spaciousness make it the ideal location year round for events of any kind: meetings, conferences, gala dinners and private events. In addition to ample parking, it also has a heli-pad. The newly inaugurated Arabic garden adds to the oriental allure of the ambience, a fascinating place with water and fire exhibits that bestow a magical atmosphere upon visitors. Adjacent the park is the swimming pool surrounded by the citrus grove and offering a stunning view of the Etna. The many halls and ballrooms, the largest with a capacity of up to 450 people, are climate-controlled and equipped with a sound diffusion system. Within the Castle premises is a delightful XVIII (18th) century church built in local stone and adorned by an altar entirely in the white stone of Siracusa.
