      OUR GOAL

       "Our goal is to offer a luxurious experience while in the company and comfort of an Italian family friend. We will be dining altogether in a Sicilian villa a true Dolce Vita style, sharing laughter, joy and stories around the table." 

      Chef Alessandro Riccobono


       You will be staying in a beautiful Sicilian villa in a strategic location during the whole trip, undertaking daily trips from there. You will unpack only once and you will be able to enjoy the benefits of the villa and surrounding area like a local.

      All Itineraries include street food & market tours, cooking with Chef Alessandro in the villa, savouring fine dining dishes in Michelin star restaurants, visiting wineries & farms and enjoying  all the bounty of what a Sicilian table can offer.

      Chef Alessandro will be sharing his culinary knowledge along the way, creating context for an authentic experience. He will be also teaching you how to cook his favourite recipes, helping you bring Sicily back home with you.

      There will also be time for discovering historical sights and the amazing art, architecture and museums of Sicily. We will be also visiting amazing blue beaches, mountain towns or simply relaxing by the pool.

      You will have direct access to Tour Curator Polina at any time, enjoying an excellent balance of the planned itinerary and free time. Our private driver will provide professional transportation on daily basis and you will also benefit from the knowledge of all local experts on the island, from tour guides in the big cities to farm owners in the mountains.
