Sissel Bakken and Salvatore Amico wish you welcome at the B&B Wine and Bike in inner Sicily!

Salvatore Amico is a veterinary and has always lived in Sicily. He is also an amazing bike mechanic and bike lover.

This couple has a big villa in inner Sicily, near Caltanissetta, they like to have guests and run Wine&Bike BB.

This place is a perfect starting point to discover the surroundings and large parts of the authentic Sicily by bike or car.

On old narrow asphalt roads without traffic you can ride among gorgeous villages and meet their curious local inhabitants. The landscape is magnificent and archaic.

You arrive easily by bus or train to Caltanissetta from Palermo or Catania, and then we pick you up and drive to BB Wine&Bike. By car it takes a short time to arrive to all parts of the island. For example:

The Valley of Temples in Agrigento and its beach (30 min), The Villa del Casale in Piazza Armerina (40 min), The Madonie Mountains (60 min), Etna (80 min), Palermo (80 min).

The climate here is drier than near the coast, and the magnificent landscape is characterized by olive and almond trees, and of course durum wheat and vineyards.

Two double rooms, each of them has personal entrance and bathroom. They are located on the ground floor surrounded by a fruit garden. In addition, you have a common living-room with a tiled stove, library and TV, an outside kitchen and a sunny terrace.

Breakfast is served on a relaxed terrace with view over the garden, the Sabucina Mountain and Etna in the background. You can make packet lunch!

If you wish, we can also prepare lunch and dinner with local products.

We also rent bikes with maps and description of the route, so you can cycle by yourself. We rent them for half a day, an entire day or for more days. We also have available bikes with kids trailer and e-bike.
