Waitrose's Jessica Gunn found a place to call her own at Arete.
"Dreamy' is the word that best describes this beautiful Sicilian villa. It's difficult to think of any place you'd rather be as you look out from the infinity pool across vineyards and olive-groves one way, and the deep blue sea the other, a gentle breeze taking the edge off the sun."
"The villa boasts a beautifully equipped kitchen, and Thinking Traveller can stock wine from La Planeta for your arrival. The agency also provides an invaluable local contact who is on hand to book restaurants and outings, or advise on what to see, do and eat. Make time to visit La Planeta's Ulmo Estate"
