Il Giardino degli Ovali, oranges with light-coloured spring fruits, were created as far back as 1932, originally as a farm-holding.

This holiday farm has been owned by the Pappalardo family since its origins, which go far back, certainly to before the times of the Reign of the two Sicilies, and has links to the splitting up of a religious tenure with medieval roots.

At this moment in time, the farm which covers about ten hectares, is cultivated with oval oranges (covering about 8 hectares)with the remaining land maintaining its original state, being a typical Mediterranean wood with rabbits, foxes, canidae, weasels, buzzards, owls and other wild animals from other mainly endemic species.
