Up from the ashes

Fort Worth Star Telegram

Ellise Pierce shares her experience of Sicily and tells about an unforgettable stay at Don Arcangelo all'Olmo in the "Life & Arts" section of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. 

"I'm staying at Villa Don Arcangelo all'Olmo, a 19th-century villa situated in the middle of 50 acres of lemon groves (they replaced the original vineyards in the 1960s), with a killer view of the turquoise Ionian Sea, which stretches all the way to Greece. Built in the classic, beefy Sicilian architectural style, with fireplaces large enough to walk in, terra-cotta walls inside and out, and archways around its doors and windows made from Etna's black, porous lava stones, the villa feels as much like a fortress as a stylish home for the aristocratic Italian family that lives here part-time."
