We arrived last night at the Hotel Don Giovanni but this morning I don’t feel as though I’m staying in a hotel. I open my window and I take in the endless green that surrounds this place. I leave the room for breakfast. The view is breathtaking. I drink my coffee on a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and I can appreciate the beauty of the Sicilian hills, similar to a painting. I feel so small in front of this endless beauty. The ancient typical Sicilian Baglio (farmhouse) with a square inner courtyard and terraces, blends perfectly with the landscape. The gardens are meticulously taken care of but what sets me at ease is the welcome I receive from Nina and Giovanni Maggio. The owners are extremely kind and I feel as though I’m a member of some huge extended family. They tell me about the place, the talk to me about their children and grandchildren, and I’ve the impression that we’ve know each other forever. Welcome to Terre Sicane!
