There was once a beautiful place near the river where child went to play and read…
We want to allow direct contact with nature, without expecting to alter or adapt it. We offer a holiday experience turned to ecotourism, sustainable development of tourism in accordance with the increase in environmental awareness and respect of the people and traditions. A holiday lived respecting a pristine environment and the authenticity of the territory, allowing tourists to stay in contact with nature and the local history. The Bevaio Corleone is a ‘Agri wellness’ specialized in catering to genuine based on typical organic agricultural products, able give you a holiday full of sports-contained nature and healthy, combining them with the care of the physical and mental wellbeing of the individual and the rediscovery of a local nature untouched. L’agriturismo si trova in una zona di alta collina a 600mt nel territorio corleonese all’interno dell’omonima azienda agricola biologica, su una superficie di circa un ettaro; è immerso nel verde, tra montagne calcareniti tipiche del territorio corleonese e un torrente di 500mt attivo tutto l’anno che scorre lungo il suo confine, raccogliendo le acque delle montagne circostanti.
At the “Bevaio Corleone” we tried to realize a dream: enhance and make available to guests a place of great charm environment without altering its natural beauty.
A Model of Green Building
An innovative structure created according to modern principles of bio-architecture and inspired at the same time to the primitive dwellings of mankind, i.e. the stilt. In this respect, we have developed wooden bungalows, suspended off the ground so as not to alter the morphology and placed in a bend of the creek, full of thick vegetation of poplars.
An encounter with nature that we have not pretended to adapt to our project.
Organic and Biodynamic
The Bevaio Corleone born as a farm then converted to organic farming for about 20 years. We are also one of the few companies in Sicily which got the Demeter certification for the practice of biodynamic. The conscious attention to agriculture is an added value for our company, since visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in an agricultural context practicing cultivation methods which protect the environment and human health in particular.
The organic method does not use chemicals, encouraging all those practices aimed at the prevention of deseases and pest attacks and also using treatments based on natural products (algae, etc..). The rhythms of nature are always respected, as well as the principle of limiting the exploitation of the soil by using natural fertilizers such as manure.
The biodynamic method was born at the beginning of the twentieth century, following the indications of Rudolf Steiner, founder of anthroposophy. Biodynamic agriculture considers all the elements that can affect the growth of plants and utilizes special preparations derived from manure and quartz, together with some plants in homeopathic doses. These preparations are afterwards appropriately dynamized, that is vitalized through a machine called “dynamizer”.
