“I didn’t realise so much care and attention would be taken for me.” Holly

“I haven’t looked at my work phone for two days, everywhere you look is a little piece of heaven.” Dhiren

 “After a prolonged period of stress I was completely run down, unable to focus or see how to overcome tasks in my work and personal life. Issues with anxiety were manifesting into physical discomfort, constant fidgeting and being unable to relax…. Lesley has been great at tailoring her therapy to me and quickly identifying what works best for me from the array of methods available.” Kieran

“The food is beautiful here; cooked to perfection.” Seamus

“As a yoga novice, I couldn’t have wished for a better teacher. Lesley’s lovely: patient, positive, encouraging, clear and inspiring. I don’t know what I expected from yoga but emerged feeling better balanced and generally more in tune with myself and the world. I would definitely recommend Lesley.” Pamela

Details about accommodation

Baglio Giammaccaro is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty against the backdrop of a majestic mountain range and facing out to sea. This beautiful oasis of calm was designed and overseen by the owners who take immense pride in the antique interiors and the luxurious provisions even down to the locally sourced cotton sheets.

The large garden is meticulously designed with lots of exotic plants, flowers and cacti. Every olive tree has been lovingly planted to compliment the attention to detail taken with the accommodation. There are small resting and meditation areas all around the site, equipped with hammocks and seating, there is even a Jacuzzi that can be used by guests. A number of bicycles are available for use by the guests and are a great way to explore the surrounding beaches.


















All guests will be able to enjoy the breath-taking views from their private terraces and take moments of quiet solitude to appreciate the truly wonderful beauty that is Baglio Giammaccaro and the surrounding area.




Enjoy incredible food made from the freshest local ingredients. There is a wide selection of Sicilian and Northern European breakfast items, all lovingly prepared. What makes Baglio Giammaccaro extraordinary is the dedication and care that Joseph and Stefano put into creating this small piece of paradise on earth. The luscious Sicilian breakfast boasts local produce from the village bakery, fresh savoury pastries and frittatas that are made from the fresh eggs which are collected from the very happy hens that live in their own exclusive part of the garden each morning. Even the watermelon at breakfast is grown in the grounds of Baglio Giammaccaro, and they also feature in a breakfast cake along with local oranges.
