Your Tailored Itinerary

This full day, all-access immersion into Maltese gastronomy is impeccably organised by Rosselli’s Experience Team who are masters at designing one-of-a-kind itineraries that redefine experiential travel for our privileged guests.

01. Sweet as Honey & Lemon Pie

A Gastronomic Experience

At Rosselli, we proudly curate every detail with precision. Sit back and unwind as your private chauffeur whisks you away to Dingli, a small village perched on the limestone cliffs of west coast Malta. On arriving in Dingli, you will delve into the world of the honeybee during a private workshop that will explore the year-round secrets of beekeeping.

Journey on to the picturesque valley of Wied Ħazrun in Dingli, fertile agricultural land fed by spring sources and man-made water systems dating to the 12th or 13th centuries AD. You will stop in a breath-taking estate of lemon groves, home to over 1,000 perennial trees. Welcoming farmers will guide you through the history of the groves, the process of fruit bearing and the importance of Malta’s mild climatic conditions. They will even share tips on how to grow your own produce if you fancy organically grown fruit at home.

Close out your visit in Dingli with a taste of the richness of the land. Tuck into a delicious spread of lemonade, lemon jams, pickles and bakes, paired with cold cuts.

02. Gardens, grandeur and gastronomy

A Gastronomic Experience

Next stop is at Palazzo Parisio, a distinctive 19th-century palazzo in the heart of the old village of Naxxar. Flanked by the parish church, Palazzo Parisio is a grand house rich with history. Its architectural style and interiors are quite unique to Malta. Described as a miniature Versailles, it is a glorious showcase of Maltese and Italian art nouveau and baroque craftsmanship at the turn of the 19th century. The interior is richly decorated with frescoes, statues, columns, chandeliers and other works of art and its gilded ballroom, reminiscent of French palaces, is the only one of its kind on the island.

The palazzo opens up its magnificent walled Italian gardens for a languid stroll. It is ranked amongst the finest gardens in Malta and contains over sixty species of plants. These are also the only privately owned gardens on the island which are open to the public.

At Rosselli, we know our guests are also gourmands and since Palazzo Parisio is also a destination for fine dining, you will sit down to a superlative lunch and savour the distinctive flavours of Mediterranean cuisine that only top chefs can dream up.

03. Boutique Wine Bouquets

A Gastronomic Experience

Malta’s climate and terroir produce some great wines that are worth tasting and savouring. The Rosselli Experience Team will introduce you to one of the very few boutique wineries on the island that is not usually open to the public and whose bottled wine is not easily found on the shelves.

Four hectares of terraced vineyards in the southern region of Malta are home to 15,000 vines planted on site. The private estate also holds 200 olive trees, fig and carob trees, and other indigenous Maltese flora.
Upon arrival, you will be transported into old world charm through a private guided tour of the winery. Wine lovers will enjoy hearing all about the vine growing process, the autumn harvest and the production of the final product until bottling.

The tour will be followed by a wine tasting. The wine is paired with cheeses and cold cuts, as well as warm bread and olive oil also produced on the estate.

04. Time To Rest

Your chauffer will drive you back to your slice of luxury at Rosselli where you can take a rest from the rich gastronomical experience and look back on the day from the superior comfort of your room. We are sure this experience will leave you wondering what else our tiny island has to offer.
