Sicily 7 days early October for Active Couple

7 days w/car first time in region, not sure about weather? Active English/German couple in early 40's interested in wine, hiking, gardens/plantations, cycling, access to small cities/restaurants and being near water if possible for part of trip if split between two areas. Prefer boutique/newer hotels/rentals/ fincas between $100-200 per night. Can fly into Palermo or Catania. Noto looked nice, but any ideas are much appreciated!

Just started exploring a similar trip for 6 a-little-less-active seniors in October 2019. Thinking about multi-day stays in Palermo and Cefalù with daytrips from each, perhaps guided if appropriate. Airfare from NY or Philly seems high. Not sure if it would be better to fly to Rome for a 2-night stay before heading to Sicily. Will be curious to see what responses you get...

In 7 days you could fly into Catania, hike Mount Etna, then head south and see Siracusa, Noto, Modica, Ragusa. There are other great hikes in that area as such Pantalica, Vendicari, Cava d'Ispica. It is better to do them with guides, though (apart from Vendicari which is easy). As to wine, there are plenty of wineries both around Etna and near Noto like this one https://www.tripadvisor.it/Attraction_Review…
