We turned up late on a November afternoon, finding the farm tucked away in the stony lanes near Scicli. We were greeted by name! Not realising the significance of having dined the previous evening at Satra in Scicli, we were met at the herb farm by Satra's chef, who is Enrico's (proprietor of Gli Aromi) fianceé! Once the introductions had... More

The site is near Scicli on the road to Sampieri. Well worth the effort as this large family run herb farm has so much to offer. Enrico is a passionate plantsman who gave us a great welcome and taught us so much in a space of 2 hours. One could buy a range of herbs and allied natural local products.... More

I've been to Gli Aromi several times to purchase plants for my Sicilian garden. Enrico is a trained horticulturalist and can recommend plants for all types of gardens. However, he also plans amazing events which deal with tours of the gardens and food tastings. Some times there is even music at the gardens. You can purchase herbs and other products... More

Group visit for lunch , Enrico and staff worked hard to ensure that all our needs were met. Enrico has done a fantastic job establishing a unique business. All produce very fresh and the cooking classes excellent.

We came a bit late and with no appointment, so Enrico was not able to give us the full tour. But he was nice enough to speak about his plantation, show us around and give us a quick inside look into the various herbs and plants. You need a car to get there.

Spent a late afternoon on Enrico's farm. We walked through smelling different herbs and enjoyed hearing his vision for the farm. They even had Thyme yoga mats. Would be great if the local resorts set up excursions their to do a morning yoga session. I could not take enough pictures because I was enjoying taking in the experience. Thank you!!
