Just loved this place. So beautiful. So elegant. So tasteful. Deceptive from the drive up but then wow! - Everything has been done so stylishly I felt like I was in Vogue magazine! The bed linens, drapes on the windows, the bathroom toiletries all bio-fab! The veranda over-looking the wine groves with a further view to the sea - so tranquil! Who needs Valium. The waft of sage and lavender from the herb gardens heated to perfection by the day long sun as you sit and quaff a chilled bottle of their estate wine! And even better - they have a beach house by the sea a five min drive away so you can go swim in the sea. Wild sand dunes and a gorgeous azure sea. Oh bella bella! There's the infinity pool inviting you to stay and sit a while amongst the groves. We took the vineyard tour which again was fantastic. Marvellous wines - you feel you are drinking in all the smells and tastes of Sicily! Such a lovely lunch to go with the wine tasting. Super friendly staff. 10/10 - go!
