The Masseria Rocca di Gonato is a magic place located among the woods overlooking the town of Castelbuono ( PA) – close to Cefalù.
It is a Rural Tourism realized in a XIIth Century property by a project of the engineer Mr Filippo Botta and his partners Mr. Giuseppe Martorana and Mr. Pietro Faila.

They renovated the property located in the Regional Park of Madonie, a few kilometres distance from the town of Castelbuono and close to the small towns of Cefalù, Le Petralie and Piano Battaglia.
Formerly it was a 1200’s convent built by the Basilian monks, followers of Saint Basil the Great.
The monks moved to Gonato and built the convent. They dedicated themselves to the growing of vegetables, to the recovery of the woody area and to the realization of a cooper and bronze foundry.

Nowadays, it is a tourist accommodation with 15 spacious rooms, some meeting rooms, a dining room where you can taste the Chef specialities and the typical products of the Madonie region such as meat, cheese, vegetables, wine etc.. Moreover there is a pampering SPA where guests can spend some wonderful moments of relax by revitalizing the mind and the body with some emotional rituals and massages.
Some colourful moments, some typical and proper flavour, and overall the beauties of this area will be revealed through the food delight.
