Fontes Episcopi Bio Resort welcomes you with an old fashioned kindness from which transpires its important history. On the Grand Tour travellers’ route, the Nineteenth century European aristocracy came to Sicily to spend their winter, “ In Sicily you can find the key of everything” wrote Goethe. It was the time when cultured and wealthy middle-class people embellished the island with precious works of art and buildings. Baron Ignazio Genuardi, a Sicilian influential person of that time, gave a beautiful mansion as a present to his son, Gerlando, who was reluctant to the mundane life. It was a magic place to gather, meditate, read and enjoy the benefits of nature. Thanks to his extraordinary intellectual and human qualities Gerlando began soon an important ecclestical career and he became a beloved bishop. After a fine and careful renovation, Genuardi’s mansion Fontes Episcopi is ready to host and delight who loves the vitalizing effects of being in nature, the sensorial harmony and the well-being.
