Welcome to my corner of peace!

Dar Pietru is my home, and I invite you over to share with you serenity, relaxation and zero-km organic food, in the pristine heart of the natural reserve and archaeological park of Noto Antica.

Here, the silence is interrupted only by the rustle of the wind in the pine forests and by the roar of the streams and little lakes of the nearby Cava del Carosello.

My home is also just 15 minutes by car from the baroque center of Noto, and 20 minutes from Palazzolo Acreide, a UNESCO heritage city. Just 20 minutes away, you will also find the best beaches of Noto and the natural reserves of Vendicari and Marzamemi.

My zero-km food

The recipe book is that of his grandmother, the hands are the expert ones of a do-it-yourself chef by passion and with a past as a television chef in Malta. You can have a virtual taste of my numerous dishes on www.pietrufurnar.com (ig: #pietrufurnar). Dar Pietru means “The home of Pietro” in Maltese, and it is a tribute to my important Maltese period.

I care very much about the quality of my ingredients, and for this reason I only source from local producers who are often also certified organic. When you arrive you may see the heads of salad that you will then eat at the table.

I look forward to taking care of you.

If you wish to accept my invitation, all I need is your contact details, day(s) and the experience(s) you wish to enjoy!

I will confirm my availability via email.
