“Enchanting Rustic Grandeur with A Big Heart”

Our Family vacationed this summer for three and a half weeks in Sicily and Italy. Our five day stay at Santa Maria Del Bosco was the highlight of the trip. The Abbey itself is enchanting, built in the 1500 and 1600 hundreds and a joy to explore. It was also very close to our family's ancestral home Bisacquino, and convenient to visit numerous central Sicilian towns such as Sambuca Di Sicilia, Chiusa Sclafani, Contessa Entelina, Guliana, Corleone and Facuzza. The abbey is run like a cozy bed and breakfast. Under the loving and thoughtful care of Giulio Inglese our family of seven at all times felt like treasured friends, rather than merely guests. Often without ever being asked Giulio and the caretakers Nini and Silvia went extraordinarily out of their way for us. From Giulio helping with family research by going to Bisacquino and requesting the records for us before we arrived, to coming to translate for us in town; Nini dropping his work to go along on a hike up Mount Gennuardo so as to ensure the best views; Silvia on the fly while preparing a meal for 13 accommodating dietary restrictions. Giulio and Anna sharing their recipe for Neapolitan pizza and then giving the children a hands on pizza making lesson was wonderful. Our feelings for the Abbey are also in no small measure the result of the amazing kindness and warmth shown by the people in the countryside of Sicily. It was routine to be greeted like an old friend when meeting complete strangers. The Abbey is an ideal place to stay to explore authentic Sicily.
