"Chiosi Country Club"
In the uncontaminated landscape of inner Sicily, where myth and history are deeply entangled with the alternating colours of green and yellow, the ancient town of Corleone lies.
The city, which, in the Middle Ages was called "animosa" for the contribution given to the revolt of the Sicilian people against the French rules (i Vespri siciliani) is dominated by the mighty "Rocca della Montagna Vecchia", a natural bulwark that was the site of pre-Greek cities and Frederick castles.
The district called Chiosi, was a domain of the Scottish origin family Firmaturi Douglas who by virtue of this possession took, in 1656 the title of Marquis of Chiosi.
The ancient site marked by centuries-old oaks trees IS a green oasis, almost an ecosystem surrounded by the parched landscape of the cereal countryside. In this context the current owners of the estate offer hospitality to travelers interested in going beyond the fleeting attractions of a location celebrated in the chronicles and to enjoy the inclusive, charming representation of the entire sicilian island' territory.
Inside the Chiosi estate, already owned by the Firmaturi Marchesi family of Chiosi, stands the "Chiosi Country Club ", a rural farm with accommodation facility, surrounded by a forest of oaks and at the foot of the "Vecchia" mountain, already a settlement of a of the last communities of Arabs in Sicily, definitively driven out of the island by Frederick II of Swabia in the 13th century.
