Hotel details
Agriturismo Villa Dafne is surrounded by lush Sicilian countryside. Set on a 200-hectare working farm producing cheese, meat and tomatoes, the hotel's rooms and apartments are housed in quaint shutter-lined buildings clad with stone, and dotted around palm tree-flanked grounds.

Alia, a medieval village known for its Art Nouveau architecture, is a 10-minute drive away, while Castello di Caccamo, a clifftop castle dating from the 11th century is around 45 minutes' drive from the farm. The Madonie Regional Natural Park, "a haven for hikers and nature-lovers" (The Guardian), takes about an hour to reach by car, while "flamboyant and feisty" Palermo, with its "citrus-filled cloisters, stucco-laced chapels and vintage stores filled with the threads of faded aristocrats" (Lonely Planet) is a 90-minute drive away. The hotel is also around an hour's drive from the coast. 

Guests can start the day with complimentary breakfast. The restaurant also serves traditional Sicilian dishes made with organic ingredients grown on site, while there's a pizzeria with a patio and gazebo for al fresco dining. There's an outdoor pool (open between May and October), and other activities include horseback riding, hiking and cookery lessons (fees may apply), as well as free educational tours of the farm.

During your free cooking class you will learn how to make a typical Sicilian meal, and then sit down to enjoy your handiwork with a glass of wine.

Guestrooms and apartments are decorated in a rustic style, with tiled floors, patterned fabrics and wood furnishings. All include free Wi-Fi, mini bars and TVs.
