Our group had a fabulous day visiting the Becchina Olive Oil estate. We were warmly welcomed by the owner, and his staff. Basilio was our guide, and a great one he was: enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. We also had lunch at the villa, which was amazing.

Gabriella and Valeria run a superb estate about 5 minutes drive outside Castelvetrano. The Becchina Estate is absolutely beautiful. It is landscaped to perfection amongst elderly olive trees and there's a broad selection of rooms available. We love the Orchard Suite. The pool is sublime - especially after a morning's sightseeing in the district. Becchina is a short drive only...

Gabriella and her family couldn't have been more welcoming when my husband and I stayed at their villa. The location is ideal and Gabriella puts together fabulous full day itineraries. And if you have a chance to have a meal at their home, it's the best in all Castelvetrano!

Valeria is the determined driving force of this well thought out Olive Oil Plantation. She has put together a great bunch of like minded people who want to offer nothing but the best quality produce and experiences alike. Tour guide and fantastic all rounder Basilio, is as witty as he is entertaining going far beyond our expectations of a host....

Bethesda Travel booked us for two nights and what a great time we had. Keeping in mind that it is agricultural tourism the rooms are rustic. But the whole place is elegant, with terrific hosts, a wonderful chef, Basillio, and an amazing olive processing plant. Basillio cooked dinner for us the first night and while we were enjoying a great...

My husband and I are so grateful that our travel agent, Guido Adelfio, with Bethesda Travel in Md., booked our stay at this hidden treasure just outside of Castelvetrano. When Guido informed us that we were staying there, we had no hint of what to expect. All we knew was that we would be taking a cooking class during our...

Gabriella and Gianfranco know how to treat the people who stay at their accomodations. The first sight of the Egyptian watergarden at the entrance to the Villa Pignatelli is breathtaking! The sicilian breakfast in the outdoor eating area is an experience not to be missed.

Within immense red walls, these within Castelvetrano's city limits, lies this authentic and elegant Antica Tenuta Principi Pignatelli, and the Frantoio Olio Verde which produces an olive oil you can sometimes get at Dean and Deluca. Father Gianfranco (antiquitarian/agriculturalist) and daughter Gabrielle (art historian/chef extraordinaire) Becchina preside over sixty acres of Nocellara del Belice olive groves (thousands of trees up...

Wonderful 6-day stay in the Tenuta Pignatelli, which is run by a father and daughter team, Gianfranco and Gabriella Becchina. Advertised as bed-and-breakfast/self-catering, but in fact we had breakfast and dinner most days. There are 9 or 10 rooms, spread between three buildings within the property, which is set in a beautiful olive and lemon estate. The family also have...
