The district of Gallina is situated in the northern part of the town of Avola. It extends as far as the sea and is separated from the municipal area of Syracuse by the river Cassibile, just before Fontane Bianche.

The estate is a part of an old feud which, as time went on, has been divided into several different properties.

Masseria sul Mare stands in the lower part, 50 hectares of cultivated fields overlooking the sea, an intact landscape which still keeps its old beauty; buildings made of stone, the Marchesa beach and the reserve area of the mouth of the river Cassibile: these are the coordinates for a special place suspended in time.

The old almond grove has been replaced by the cultivation of wheat, olives and potatoes and a kitchen-garden supplies all the vegetables and herbs used in the Restaurant.
