Buy, renovate and have your home featured in design magazines worldwide. I recently contacted Studio Gum about a Sicilian renovation (that I’ve had on the backburner) after seeing one of their properties featured in a mag. Sure, some time, patience, creativity, and connections (oh, and euros) are needed. But if others can do it, why not you? I always share what I find on the real estate front, and would like to do a tour in the future where we look at properties. Want in? Send us email with “more” and we’ll send you the deets.
Seeing dolphins in Sicily is a thing. We go on a private boat on our Sicily tour (when we hit the Aeolian islands) and those little guys and girls come to play in the waves. Then the captain starts whistling to them and we’re all like kids again. Super magical. Kind of like Stromboli, the smoking volcano you see from the boat.
Monaci delle Terre Nere is a hotel I viewed when I was designing our Sicily tour. I absolutely looooved it and wanted to bring people there, but it was also in the middle of nowhere. Which is kind what you want for a day or two. I suggest you come to Sicily on our trip, where we spend 8 nights staying at other stunning places, then plan to extend your stay a few days (cause that’s what you need when you stay in the middle of nowhere) and just chill by their glorious pool and dream of being reincarnated as a hotelier in the wilds of Sicily. PS I added another date to our Sicily tour schedule for 2022 because space was skinny on the others. Come! This new fall date will get sold out, too.
