    Description

    Hi, thanks for stopping by. I currently live in England but I own a place in the sunny Sicily and go there about once or twice a year depending on my schedules here in UK.
    So you can imagine how this place in the sun can be very messy after a year of inactivity.
    That is where you come in (I hope).

    in October 2017 help needed from the 7th for 2 weeks. Thanks

    Have you ever wonder how extra virgin olive oil is produced? You can learn all the process from harvesting to when the oil is coming out from the presses, we are going to have also some almond picking. We have a bit of everything for you so you can enjoy our Mediterranean food and weather and learn new things. The place is located in the South of Sicily, near Niscemi and we have a beautiful natural reserve close to our farm called Sugherata,which is a cork wood forest plus the sea is only 30-40 minutes by car. We have very interesting Roman and ceramic museum in the city nearby of Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina.
