Helen Banno and family won a week’s holiday to the five-star Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa in Sicily, after entering promotion by the Strada restaurant chain. The Donnafugata competition was held last year to coincide with the launch of Strada’s new summer menu. As part of the prize, Helen, her husband Tony and two children, Richard and Francesca, were treated to half-board accommodation at Donnafugata plus a variety of other activities including a visit to local winery tour, a trip to the historic town of Ragusa and free use of a private beach and the resort’s award-winning spa.
Helen, 42, from Halesowen, West Midlands, who claimed her prize this month, said: “I don’t enter many competitions. It was my son who saw the competition and persuaded me to enter. The resort looked so beautiful and, because my husband’s father comes from Sicily, I just thought why not! Donnafugata was absolutely lovely. It took our breath away and we loved everything about the resort. The holiday just amazing and I wish I could go back tomorrow.”
Opened in 2010, Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses and extensive practice facilities. Further details at: www.donnafugatagolfresort.com
