Never before had I been pampered quite like during my stay with Dutch owners Tom and Carla on Sicily. Their vineyard Tenuta Madonnina is located at an altitude of 500 metres on the northern slope of mount Etna. Their classic vineyard is surrounded by olive trees, vines and fruit trees. Carla had been waiting for me. I got out of the rental car and approached her. ‘Such an oasis of peace and quiet!’, I said. She grinned: ‘Come, there’s more’. She had readied a bottle of Etna Rosso and a dish with all kinds of Sicilian snacks for me. How thoughtful!
She walked me to the apartment. I was surprised by the cool temperature. No aircon necessary! Carla and Tom created a smart design to make sure the bedrooms downstairs stay nice and cool while the living room provides a magnificent view of the town of Castiglione di Sicilia.
I woke up the next morning to fresh rolls and an impressive breakfast on the sunny patio. My day couldn't possibly have started any better. A day that would be all about hanging around the pool. With a culinary Sicilian night ahead of me. I was in for some delicious food immersed in an Italian atmosphere. What a magnificent holiday!
