CALAMONI FAVIGNANA: THE MAGIC OF GRAPES A FEW METRES FROM THE SEA AND AN EXCLUSIVE VILLA IN THE MIDDLE OF NATURE

The sea not ten metres from us, seduces like the voice of a mermaid, inviting us for a dive. However, unlike Ulysses, we have a good reason to be distracted: moved by the breeze we turn and find row of vines kissed  by sun and protected by a reassuring promontory on  the top and a continuous line of drywall at the bottom.  This view reveals us  the Calamoni di Favignana estate, the unique vineyard in production of the Egadi islands, the real jewel estate of Firriato, located in the middle of the Mediterranean sea,a flagship of a beautiful and heroic viticulture.

In Favignana Island, known also as the Butterfly of Egadi Islands, there are Calamoni Apartments, signed by Firriato Hospitality. On the south centre of the island, the apartments have been obtained from a skillful restoration of antique island buildings. They are testimony of the harmonious dialogue between their contemporary architecture and the island’s history. Tradition is reflected in the furnishings where the white stone goes side by side with fine wood. The building, consisting of a large villa and four apartments, charmingly rich in details that recall the Mediterranean style, is completely surrounded by the 5 hectars of Firriato vineyard. The Calamoni apartments, near to the sea Lido Burrone, are the ideal destination to set out on the discovery of the island’s beauty, by bike, by foot, or by taking part in the September grape harvest tour with Firriato grape growers – an enchanting experience in the unique vineyard of Egadi archipelago.
