Dear ones, apparently the lockdown we were forced to bear is bearing fruit and the overall situation looks more rosy than assumed. Our thoughts go to those who because (direct or indirect, it doesn't matter) of this damned covid-19 has left the skin. Life goes on, however, and as far as we are concerned, our role is to offer you a way to enjoy the beauty of this corner of Sicily. In the hope that mayors and presidents will not go too far in riding populist choices to intercept political consensus, we from June 12 to July 2 are ready to welcome you by reservation. From 3 July we will be here on a permanent basis until September. We confirm that there will be a single rate (the cheapest) for the whole summer season: it is the only concrete move that we thought we could do, in times when many families have been forced to tighten the belt, to help each other.

Who are we?
We are a group of musicians, educators and philosophers who have decided to roll up their sleeves and come up with a way not to leave their land, just going back to the land. Leveraging on our proud scouts and peasant roots, we set up an specialized camp site, for tents only,in one of the most enchanting places in Sicily. However, if you do not want to give up too many comforts, we also have an village area dedicated to wooden bungalows, mobile homes, glamping
tents and the possibility of using the B&B option (bed and breakfast).
Where are we?
Between Marzamemi and Pachino, in the municipality of Noto, close to the Vendicari Reserve and the sandy beaches of San Lorenzo, a strategic area to easily visit the south-eastern Sicily, especially the Baroque and archaeological areas of Noto, Scicli, Modica, Ragusa, Syracuse, Palazzolo Acreide, Ispica and Rosolini. We are also a few kilometers from Portopalo di Capo Passero and from the caribbean beaches on the Mediterranean such as Carratois, Costa dell'Ambra and Granelli.
Where to eat?
In addition to the countless excellent catering activities that the area offers (but which we will be pleased to tell you about it in person...), inside the campsite we have a kiosk in which we offer lively breakfasts and quick dinners, with particular attention to typical local products. Moreover from the campsite it is possible to directly access the adjacent Sultana Wines
Where to shop?
Within a kilometer there are at least three supermarkets, various farms that sell their excellent fruit and vegetables directly and in Portopalo a thriving fish market.
In any case, if you are looking for a typical tourist village, with group dances and aperitif games, unfortunately we are not for you. And we don't have a swimming pool
because, given that there are plenty of swimming pools in Milan or Turin, let's assume that you come here to Sicily for our beaches and our sea. But would you seriously go fifteen hundred kilometers to jump into the pool?!
Do you know how to play or sing?
So don't worry, nobody will take away a jam session with us! If you are a guitarist, a bassist, a drummer, a keyboardist or a singer, here you already find everything you need! This is our animation: play with you!
Warning! Here we separate and do well. If your sense of civic spirit stays at home while you are on vacation, keep looking… Probably not for you.

FROM CROCODILE IN NEW YORK SEWERS TO BURNING BLUE IRON TRAYS
If, like us at Agricamping Sophia, you are fond of pizzas in the pan and focaccia, you have certainly received the news or have accidentally read the miraculous cooking skills of the legendary blue iron trays
. Out of curiosity, also thanks to the lockdown due to the Covid-19, we purchased a couple, for private use, from different manufacturers. Being aware, through the attendance of specialized forums and the reading of a myriad of articles on the net, of the mysterious burning
which should be a preliminary operation necessary to give the green light to their use, we are here uncritically lavished in following to the letter one of the guides found among the first results of Google.
The outcome? A lot of smoke, the smell of burnt oil throughout the house and two apparently ruined trays. Immediately consulted the forums we mentioned, the diagnosis is...
