Giarre, Sicily


One of our final stops in Sicily was a farmhouse at the foot of Mount Etna. We stayed in the Giarre area, a town on the outskirts of Catania, once famed for its wine producing hills.


Our home for the night was a gorgeous farmhouse…

  


 ...in a stunning setting…


…with lots of space for us to wander around and explore…



…cute rooms…



…pets…


…great views…



…and the perfect atmosphere to sit and relax with some wine.




 

 


We finished up the evening with a delicious home-cooked feast!

Prosciutto


Veggies




Couscous


Bruschetta


Mushroom soup (“Zuppa di Funghi Siciliana”)


Pasta alla Norma


Sausages


Fruit

Followed by a digestif ‘canarino’ (lemon, bay leaf and hot water) – their version of a peppermint tea!


The following morning, the farm cooks fueled us up for our Mount Etna hike:

Cappuccino


with a random mix of cake, bread, fish, tomatoes, custard and fruit for breakfast!


And off we went to climb the volcano!  Read about it here...
