The agriturismo

A recently restored farmhouse which combines healthy rural simplicity with comfortable hospitality, surrounded by delightful countryside and green pastures between Palermo, Agrigento and the unique coastline of Cefalù. The farm is organically run, and also rears sheep and cows.

The accommodation

The farm, with a scenic view of the valleys, has 25 rooms with bathrooms, furnished in an Arte Povera style, with air conditioning, heating, safe, minibar, television, hairdryer and telephone and 5 apartments with kitchenettes.

 

Adults and children can relax in the agriturismo’s 2 swimming pools, while the riding school offers horseback excursions.

 

The pastoral farm, dairy farm and fruit and vegetable orchards and gardens provide produce for the restaurant's traditional rural dishes, which guests can learn how to recreate in the farm's cookery courses.
The farm produces and sells typical regional produce, such as traditional Sicilian cheeses, preserves and organic tomato sauce.

Activities and surrounding

A perfect location for those who want to experience a region rich in culture and natural beauty, which spans from the crystal sea of Cefalù to the inland countryside, from the sandy coast of Agrigento to the volcanic summit of Etna, from the Madonie Regional Natural Park to the Monti Sicani nature reserve, and the fascinating Palermo with its history of past civilisations such as the Valley of the Temples.

At Villa Dafne, guests can enjoy horse riding, hiking, and a holiday surrounded by nature, wonderful food and wine and the utmost relaxation.

    "Most wonderful stay experience. Beauty, food and service 10+. A paradise in a paradise."

    03/07/2019

    My husband and I are traveling for 6 months in Europe. Villa Dafine was one destination point. The family that owns and runs the farm and accommodations could not be nicer. They have built a Paradise in a paradise. Rooms were so clean and well decorated, food was unbelievably good. We toured the farm and saw their ricotta facility. My husband had a serious cold when we arrived and Giuseppe arranged a doctor appointment, drove us there and waited to translate to the doctor. We spent 8 wonderful days here and hated to leave.

    "Nice agriturismo, bad room..."

    10/14/2018

    Plus:
    The buildings and the surroundings look very appealing. Friendly welcome with a free drink at the bar after check-in. Dinner was very tasty, though dining room wasn't looking too cozy.
    Our room had a little balcony, which was nice to sit on.
    Minus:
    The bathroom was quite smelly (I guess from the drain), and I'm a pretty bad maintenance state (shower curtain way too small, shower installations lose).
    The walls are pretty thin, as we could almost understand what our (french!) room neighbours were talking about.
    Overall ok, but for that price we expected more.
