28 August, 2014: Travellers from different parts of the world are expected to flood bookings of the many Sicily villas available to rent, in order to attend the international Cous Cous Festival in September. 

A popular gastronomic event 

This annual event is scheduled to take place in the picturesque coastal town of San Vito Lo Capo, and is the showcase for the myriad tradition cous cous dishes from the Mediterranean. 

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn all about the art of cous cous preparation during a variety of workshops in San Vito Lo Capo. Evening entertainment will be provided by talented Sicilian musicians. But it is the international cook off that is slated to be the highlight of this six-day festival. Renowned chefs from countries such as Algeria, Italy and America will compete for the title of Cous Cous champion 2014. 

Specialist company Essential Italy advises international travellers excited about the prospect of the Cous Cous Festival to book early as, during past years, availability has gone fast. The well-known company offers reasonably priced Sicily villas in areas including Scopello, Trapani and Marsala. Representatives from the company say most visitors also take the opportunity to tour the Zingaro Nature Reserve and the Greek Temple Of Sigesta prior to the major festival. 

Freshly sourced fish, meat and vegetables are used in the creation of delicious cous cous dishes during specially organised tasting sessions. It will also be possible to purchase delicacies from markets in Northern Sicily. Visitors may even take the opportunity to join in the parties, which will take place on the beach of San Vito Lo Capo. 

The popularity of the San Vito Lo Capo festival is world-renowned, and over two hundred thousand food lovers joined local residents last year. This year, even greater numbers of tourists staying in Sicily villas are expected to take advantage of an all day pass and complementary cous cous dish.
