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 Cefalu. The farm is organically run, and also rears sheep and cows.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.A perfect location for those who want to experience a region rich in culture and natural beauty, which spans from the crystal sea of Cefalu 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.

What is not to like about this beautiful agriturismo? Stunning views and perfect swimmingpool. We enjoyed the fresh ricotta daily and found it a real treat to visit the farm and cheese factory. The dinner was made of fresh and high quality products. Our daughters and I went horseback riding, was the highlight of their trip The only minor downside is its location (not very close to a autostrada), especially if you want to visit the beaches frequently. I would love to revisit Villa Dafne

Guiseppe ( actually both Guiseppe's)and all the staff were great hosts. The farm visit was much better than I expected and we loved the cooking lesson. The scenery is superb. The rooms are a little tired and ready for some decorating, but very clean and comfortable

This is a precious gem in the mountains. Peaceful, relaxed, great views, perfect facilities if basic. The food that is served through their restaurant and for breakfast is simply delicious - I have missed the yogurt, ricotta, starter selections, pasta, pizzas etc etc since arriving home. Th staff are all very friendly and all work so very hard. The family should be very proud of what they have achieved here - for a get away break with total relaxation you couldn't ask for much more. I would suggest hiring a car from the airport - despite the roads being a little hairy from time to time - its a great location to go off and explore to both the coast and the villages in the mountains. If I was to make any recommendation for improvements - it would be to have a cushion to place on the sun loungers - they are super hard to lay on all day and maybe a little old. The other would be to open the restaurant from 7pm not 8pm from October. We did stay later into the season and maybe this is not such an issue when the summer is in full swing - but in October when it gets dark at 5.30/6pm its a long wait until dinner. However well worth the wait....:-) I'd rather not tell too many people what a gem this is as I want to be able to book back in here again..!!!

This place bears little resemblance to the farm it once was as all buildings are newly built, although some room are already showing wear and tear. The views arrive but the roads to the site are in a terrible state of disrepair with three major areas of damage on the only road to the property. Being out of the way in open countryside one needs to travel considerable distances to see major attractions. The food is very poor apart from the fresh fruit salad at breakfast, and dinner is just not worth eating.

We were looking for a quiet non-touristy location from which to explore Sicily. One which gave us the option to self-cater or eat out. Villa Dafne met all our requirements and more. The staff were friendly and the service excellent. The rooms were a good size with an adequate kitchenette. The restaurant food was good and reasonably priced. The views around Villa Dafne are fabulous. We did a couple of the walks suggested and explored surrounding Sicily by car, visiting Agrigento to see the valley of the temples for a bit of culture; Cefalu for the beach; Palmero to play golf and drove around the Enna and Caltanissetta regions. I would recommend Villa Dafne without hesitation.
