Just outside of Sicily's city of Castelvetrano, you'll find Tenuta Pignatelli, a beautiful, family-run working farm and resort. Run by the Becchina family, the farm produces olive oil while the grounds produce a stunning sense of relaxation. I spent my days there wandering a landscape of fruit trees and vegetable gardens, enjoying a lovely swimming pool, and basically discovering that - yes - time can disappear. Between the Becchina family and the farm, the place offered plenty to do and the freedom to do nothing. Dipping in the pool day or night, enjoying the quiet but steady Mediterranean breeze that blows through the dry heat of the sun, eating green Belice olives, or just hanging with the farm cats, including one who became my best friend and constant companion, it was gloriously peaceful. And then there were the wonderful meals produced on request by Enza, one of the sweetest women in the world. This wonderful assortment of people and farm creatures were so welcoming, it was hard to leave them all. Including my cat pal, who hung with me till the day I left. I will miss you all.
