Couscous Fest Set to Attract Holidaymakers to Sicily Villas

25, September 2014: Travel statistics show huge numbers of visitors heading to Sicily every year to enjoy the sunshine, beaches and cultural attractions. However, in September, one of the best festivals of the year is set to entice even more travellers to visit Sicily. Villas here are popular with tourists well into September anyhow, but at the end of the month tourists can enjoy being a part of the famous Couscous Fest.

It should come as no surprise that the Couscous Fest is a festival dedicated to couscous! Held in San Vito lo Capo every September, in 2014 it will run from 23rd to 28th. It's not the only annual festival to take place in San Vito Lo Capo, but it is arguably the most widely known. The town is located in the Trapani province, which is an excellent area for exploring and quite popular with walkers and hikers. For people holidaying in Sicily, villas in San Vito lo Capo and the surrounding area are ideal for an extended stay. The region is known for its great beauty, and events like the Couscous Fest are just another reason to add to its appeal.

At the festival, couscous is prepared by chefs from as far afield as Brazil, Ethiopia, Palestine and Turkey. They each come up with their own interpretations of the dish and compete for an award. However, it is not just about the couscous. The festival is also an opportunity to discover explore different cultures while celebrating this truly universal dish. Also on offer is dancing, live music, arts and crafts, workshops, conferences, cooking classes and activities for children.

The town itself has many other attractions and is popular with both locals and visitors to Sicily. Villas in this coastal town and the surrounding area are ideal for those who want to stay away from the large cities and have access to a beautiful beach. The weather is warm even in the autumn, making it an ideal time to visit to enjoy the Coucous Fest and the region's host of other attractions.
