A charming country estate in southern Sicily, just 20 minutes from the coast – includes a welcome drink
Sicily conjures up images of unspoilt countryside unchanged for centuries, intense unbroken sunshine, clear blue skies and even clearer seas. At Tenuta Cammarana you can enjoy all this and more. This historic country estate is set amongst prickly pear-strewn meadows and lovely gardens filled with jasmine, climbing roses, bearded iris and hollyhocks. The original 250-year-old house retains its neo-baroque style, with original textured stone walls and tiled roofs. You can almost feel the history oozing through every nook and cranny, with the whole place having been lovingly cared for down the generations.
Today the Cammarana Estate is a working farm, producing olive oil and carob beans from its ancient fields that were originally planted by the Arabs. The surrounding meadows are filled with wild herbs and flowers which are much loved by the resident bees, whose honey often finds its way onto your breakfast table. They are also grazed on by local dairy herds, whose sweet milk produces some exquisite must-try ricotta cheese. Home for your stay is in one of only five guest rooms, all steeped in romance, blissful solitude and their own individual style. This is a truly romantic retreat, offering serene respite from the 21st century and the outside world.
