Sicily: September 2-9, 2017
Many of you know that I travel to Sicily quite often to visit one of my dearest friends, Marilena Barbera, and her family. I have a found a villa in the beautiful southwestern portion of Sicily, Menfi and I am looking for 10 people who would love to join me there. I do need to have 10 people who commit to make this happen.
The villa stay will be one week, arriving September 2 and departing September 9, 2017. You will fly into Palermo airport where we will pick you up and transport you to the villa in Menfi. You will unpack and settle into the villa. The Vila has four double rooms to accommodate 4 couples and two single rooms with two single beds that can accommodate 2 sets of two friends traveling together. We will have a welcome cocktail party and dinner al fresco. You know we will be drinking some great wine, since Marilena is the best wine maker in the region!
Within our week stay we will enjoy wine tastings, olive oil tastings, cooking classes, dinners out tasting the local specialties. We will visit the charming town of Sciacca for shopping and amazing dinner. A day on a boat exploring the Sicilian coast. We will explore the ancient ruins of the Selinunte, so bring your camera’s. A visit to a local farm and olive grove for a very special cooking class. There will be optional bike rental for those that are interested. An afternoon at a local beach club, to enjoy one of the most beautiful views, water, sand & cocktails. A farewell dinner at the villa with new local friends that you will have met. Transfer back to Palermo airport for your further travels.
