Le Corti di Cannamara, a seven bedroom renovated private luxury farmhouse with pool, near the town of Modica in Southwest Sicily.
Sexy Sicilian food, wine and landscape, plus gorgeous sunshine and no jetlag.
What’s the story
I find that the older I get, the more scrupulous my holiday search brief becomes. Six of us (two couples and two friends, all mid-thirties) reached our dream-holiday hit list after a tedious amount of emailing. "Breezy but tan-plausible 27 degree dappled-cloud sunshine;" "close to a market town to buy yummy food in wicker baskets;" "a massive villa so we can't hear each other at night (snigger);" "one of those magazine-worthy swimming pools with proper *NOT PLASTIC* sun loungers" and "maximum four hours from London." These old divas finally found what they wanted at Corti di Cannamara, via the travel agency Think Sicily.
