Sicily Cooking Holiday, Italy

Company : Flavours Holidays
Activities: Cookery Courses / Tours / Cultural Tours
Country: Italy
Duration: 1 week to 1 week
Approx Costs: 1500 to 1500 £ Pound (UK)

Sicily is an island of contrasts, mixed cultures and changing landscapes, and is bathed in sunshine most of the time. It has an amazingly diverse, ancient heritage. 

We base ourselves in the south-east and the surrounding area is dotted with well-known historical sites – such as Siracusa Greek Theatre, and various Baroque towns such as Noto and Ragusa. Discovering Sicilian cookery is like discovering Sicilian history.

Various civilizations – Greek, Roman, Arabs, Normans, Spanish and British – have left their mark and from the gastronomic point of view, their influence is still in evidence in modern day Sicilian cooking. We only visit Sicily during Spring and Autumn, the best times of year to be there. It will be comfortable without the extreme heat of mid-summer and without getting too cool in the evenings.

For those who like it mild, May and October are best, or if you’re looking for hot days and balmy nights, June and September are better. Would you like to find out more?

Accommodation

The villa where our Cookery Course in Sicily is held is situated on a private estate, and is of typical Sicilian style and dates back to 1848. Chosen because of its location, it has some beautiful views of the surrounding areas. Upon waking in the morning, to a clear blue sky, you can enjoy breakfast outside and soak up the sea views. Within the grounds of the estate there is an outdoor pool, which is encircled by almond and olive trees. After a dip, you can sit back and relax on the terrace and enjoy the sight and sound of the sea. Sicily is an ideal place for a Mediterranean island holiday and our villa is the perfect place to kick back and relax. View our photo gallery to see more of your venue.
