My wife and I stayed at Sciaraviva, a working organic farm at the foothills of Mount Aetna in northeastern Sicily in January, 2010. The farm, which raises olives and wine grapes primarily, is absolutely lovely, with a beautiful, fully apportioned guest house in which we stayed. This included a small kitchen facility, sufficient for us to cook great meals with ingredients we purchased at nearby farmers markets and macellerias (butcher shops).
Breakfast was included and it was excellent. Because we don't eat many sweets in the morning, Virginie changed the breakfast to include wonderful cheeses and baked goods, along with the incredible, fresh squeezed juice from the Sanguenalla, or "blood oranges" from their farm.
Mario and Virginie are both very pleasent and very helpful in terms of providing guidance on travel, places to visit, etc. They are both very quiet and private, but engaging with their guests.
To top it all off, you can purchase some of their award winning olive oil, made from their organic olives, some of the very best we have ever had.
A terrific place which we highly recommend!!
