Living inside a museum
The hospitality of the Planeta family finds a home in the heart of the historic centre of Sambuca di Sicilia at Casa Panitteri. This ancient dwelling houses the Archaeological Museum, a small jewel full of artefacts from Selinunte and Adranone.
Thanks to a partnership between the Municipality of Sambuca di Sicilia and Airbnb, in 2018, this flat was transformed into an Artist’s House; as of this year, it has become one of Planeta’s hospitality venues.
Here, guests will spend their stay between history and culture, art and design, in an intimate and unique location. The artistic heart of the house is a work by the painter Edoardo Piermattei: a fresco on the ceiling of the living area that is also echoed in the four-poster bed.
From Casa Panitteri you can explore the village with a nice walk through the Saracen alleys. Sambuca di Sicilia is part of the association ‘I Borghi più belli d’Italia’ (Italy’s Most Beautiful Villages), small towns that stand out for their historical, artistic and cultural relevance, for the harmony of their urban structure, liveability and services.
This is where our roots lie and where the history of our company began. At the Ulmo estate, we will welcome you with our cellar tours, and at La Foresteria Menfi for those dedicated to the discovery of our culinary tradition and wine tasting.
In the land of wine
With its triple exposure to different seas and winds, Sicily, one of Italy’s two island regions, is unique due to its variety of landscapes, making it a popular destination. Surrounded by volcanoes, mountains mantled in snow, art cities and beaches that rival any tropical destination, nature flourishes, allowing visitors to relish in the diverse cuisine, wines and oils that reflect the region’s diversity and the warm hospitality of its people.
