Simple agriturismo with views of sea and mountain. Feast on authentic Sicilian cuisine, drive to the beach in Cefalù in 20 minutes

This hilltop country house has views of the Tyrrhenian Sea on one side and the Madonie mountains on the other. You’ll find it at the end of a bumpy dirt road leading to the archaeological site of Himera, a Greek colony founded in 650 B.C., as the agriturismo is set in its grounds.

Maria always greets her guests with some kind of treat – fresh orange juice and cake or a glass of wine with cheese. Breakfast is sumptuous – fruit from the orchard, ricotta cheese from nearby shepherds, homemade jams and cakes, salami and cheeses, served at wooden tables under a pergola surrounded by flowers. You’ll want to stay for lunch and dinner too.

Rooms have custom furniture and doors leading into the garden. Stay put and have cooking lessons with Maria, or hike along footpaths in the mountains. You can drive to Cefalù in 20 minutes for beaches, seafood restaurants and boutiques; Palermo is 40 minutes away.
