Who we are
“Verso Est” was born few years ago inside one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, Petralia Soprana, in the heart of the Madonie Park.
Ileana, the owner, fell in love with its charming courtyard and the ancient steps that lead to the small S. Teodoro church and with the old stone typical of this village and, in 2014 she started the renovation of this structure.
She decided to mantain the original external prospect and to renew completely the inside of the building with a great attention to the details.
The spaces that originary were stables and warehouses have been totally renovated, keeping wood as the predominant element.
The name “Verso Est”, was inspired by the achievement of what at the origin was just a little daydream made looking to the east, the cardinal point where the sun rises and the new day starts, a new beginning.
You can enjoy a rejuvenating stay, immersed in the silence and the boundless nature of the Madonie Park.
VersoEst offers two comfortable rooms finely furnished ,with a warm atmosphere for a stay like at home!
Verso est is on two floors, the honey colour wood characterizes the visible beams and the main staircase, thought as a “fence”, that connects the two main floors of the house and the kitchen which is on a different floor level in a separate area..
All the furniture is inspired to the mountain and to Ileana’s life. Also in this case the predominant element is wood. VersoEst welcomes its guests in a large drawing-room with TV area, where they can also relax and immerse themselves in reading guides, magazines and books available to all guests.
