“Green Manors, Castroreale, is special. When we first...”

Written on: 10/02/2009

Green Manors, Castroreale, is special. When we first visited there in 2005 we received a wonderfully warm welcome, enjoyed amazing food, loved our luxurious room (the Fantasy Hall Suite) and left knowing that we ' d return one day.

Since then we ' ve been back a further four times, the fourth of which was for our wedding last summer. The hospitality and the wonderful rustic luxury of Green Manors that we have come to know over the years meant that we just couldn ' t imagine having our wedding anywhere else. After getting married in Castroreale (the local town), Green Manors hosted our wedding reception and it was absolutely perfect. Forty guests were fed a wonderful six course banquet followed by an evening of drinking and dancing (to a fantastic Sicilian band) by the lovely pool. Green Manors helped create an atmosphere that was both fun and relaxed, whilst simultaneously being professional and very high quality.

Green Manors could not have been better hosts. They were so helpful both on the day and in the run up to the wedding, and went out of their way to ensure our dreams came true (such as hunting down two red Fiat Cinquecentos to serve as our wedding cars, and driving me to and from the hairdressers, florists etc in the days running up to the wedding). We felt like we were among family.

The banquet was excellent, and a fraction of what similar quality food and wine would have cost us in England. We chose a selection of our favourite dishes from Green Manors that we had tried over the years and our requests for scallops, white truffles, wild boar, swordfish and tuna carpaccio were all accommodated. They even made us a surprise Sicilian wedding cake which was beautiful.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Green Manors as a perfect location for a short break (or indeed a wedding!) for anyone who loves good food and wine, who likes small, family-run hotels that are full of character and individuality.
