Why Donna Carmela Resort
Donna Carmela, Sicily is a beautiful mansion that has been sympathetically restored and extended by its current owners the”Faro family” and gives guests a beautiful, relaxing, tropical haven from which to relax or explore the island of Sicily . The hotel is located in the centre of one of their plant nurseries and as such surrounded by 100 acres of lush mediterranean and subtropical plants.
