Azienda Duca di Castelmonte

"Tito, mangiare qui?" madre called from the balcony on the courtyard. My eyes lit up. Such folklore! Where was I? At Azienda Duca di Castelmonte, a centuries-old colourful farm where the true Italian lifestyle is still commonplace. Owner Toto laughed. "Will you join us for dinner? My mother is cooking for everyone. And we only use products from our own land." I recalled the olive groves, citrus orchards and fresh tomatoes. "I’d love to!" I smiled.

Near Trapani, in the inlands, I found the warm atmosphere of the Curatolo family’s agriturismo. I quickly realised that this azienda is a feast for the eyes. The terracotta and yellow walls, bright blue shutters, blossoming garden and all those trinkets thanks to the centuries-old family traditions. Toto had just shown me pictures of how they used to eat in the courtyard. The mother, brother and sister still live there to this day. "We want to stimulate all senses," Toto said as we walked to the apartments through the large garden, passing the chapel and the pool. "These used to be cattle stables. And today, you get to sleep there," he laughed. In the shade of the tree, I found the same warm and traditional style. I was only allowed to drop my bag, because there was a lot more to see. Toto showed me their chickens, peacocks and the other animals. And a perfect place for kids: the playground. I smiled: what was that delicious aroma?

"Mi madre is done!" I wanted to run to the restaurant, a place where I’d be eating often. The more Sicilian, the better. I couldn’t wait to experience it all.

The best way to discover your destination is by car!

Are you booking a flight holiday? Then a rental car of the lowest category (Small Class) is selected as standard for your trip and you have the option of upgrading the rental car. You can pick up the rental car at the airport and drive to your accommodation yourself. 

Are you booking a holiday with own transportation? Then the rental car is not included in your trip and you can (at some destinations) book the rental car if you are interested. When you book your rental car, you can pick it up at your destination and drive to your accommodation yourself. The transport to the pick-up point of the rental car is arranged by you.

  • The prices on this page are upgrade prices. They are indicative for your selected travel duration in the chosen season.
  • The car models shown are indicative of the category they fall into. A rental car in the Small Classe with full insurance cover is included as standard for your holiday. After booking, we will check if the chosen car is available. If it is not, we will try to offer you a suitable alternative. In exceptional cases it may happen that no rental car is available. In both cases we will contact you to discuss the options. 
  • Are you the main driver? Then you must meet the minimum or maximum age requirements as stated in the car rental terms and conditions, have a credit card in your name (including PIN number) and a valid driving license.

Tip: If you are travelling with 4 or more people, it is advisable to book an upgrade or an extra car. You can select the car upgrade in the booking steps. Do you want to book an extra car? Please contact us.
