Why We Love This Hotel

- It’s a 10-minute drive from medieval Alia and 90 minutes’ by car from “complex, multi-layered” (Rough Guides) Palermo

The lush Sicilian landscape spreads out from Agriturismo Villa Dafne, which offers a traditional countryside stay in a secluded location. Set on a 200-hectare working livestock farm producing cheese, meat and tomatoes, the hotel’s rooms and apartments are housed in quaint shutter-lined buildings clad with stone, and dotted amidst palm tree-flanked grounds. Alia, a medieval village known for its Art Nouveau architecture, is a 10-minute drive away, whilst 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 and “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.
A relaxed, homely feel characterises Agriturismo Villa Dafne, from its cosy wood-panelled lobby area to the numerous paved terraces, which overlook the farmland. Guests can start the day with complimentary breakfast and sample organic ingredients grown on site, both in the restaurant, which serves traditional Sicilian dishes, and in the pizzeria, where a patio with a gazebo offers al fresco dining. There’s a seasonal outdoor pool with a children’s area, and other activities include horseback riding, hiking and cookery lessons (fees may apply), as well as free educational tours of the farm.
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. Higher tariff rooms add hill views and antique-style furnishings, whilst apartments include loft bedrooms, wood-beamed ceilings and balconies.
