    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    You will discover the Sicilian culture starting from the flavors of our traditional cuisine. I would like my teenage children to discover new cultures and learn languages through conversation. We believe that cultural exchange is always a great source of wealth.
    We love cooking and receiving friends for barbecuing at home while listening to music.
