Beyond the beach
Three reasons why you'll love it here

- Relaxing by the pool sipping iced-water and "zammù"
- Traditional Sicilian cuisine in the "Granaio" restaurant
Much more than a holiday, a vacation at Masseria Susafa is tantamount to a journey back in time, discovering the age-old rural traditions of Sicily.
Sicily, country style
Long before tourists started staying in Italy's small, family-owned farms, the Sicilian countryside was full of places like Masseria Susafa: an old stone farmhouse at the center of a cluster of little cottages, barns, stables and cellars.
Still very much a working farm, Masseria Susafa is now a stunning country resort too, it's stables and granary cleverly converted into bedrooms, a restaurant, a library and lounge, all oozing with old world Sicilian charm.
Modern comfort, ancient pleasures
There are traces of Masseria Susafa's centuries-old past in every corner of the farmstay: in each of its 13 bedrooms and in the large, 3 bedroom apartment.
As simple as they are Sicilian, Masseria Susafa's rooms have many of the features of the island's old rural homes, such as exposed wooden beams, terracotta floor tiles and exquisite items of hand crafted furniture.
Sicilian taste parade
Did you know that cous-cous is one of Sicily's most popular dishes? Well, if you didn't, you do now! You can try this and other typical island treats, such as egg plant caponata and the sweet cannoli, in Masseria Susafa's Granaio restaurant.
Guaranteeing the freshness of the Granaio's seasonal dishes, all the specialties served are prepared with either homegrown or locally-sourced ingredients.

Savor the silence...
...in the wine bar, created in the farm's ancient palmento (where the wine used to be made), in the lounge, library, or on the panoramic terrace, a glass of sweet Marsala wine or iced water and "zammù" in hand.
As inviting as Masseria Susafa's rooms and terraces may be, it's outside, in the sun-scorched Sicilian countryside, that you'll no doubt spend most of your vacation: strolling through the fragrant gardens or lazing by the lovely swimming pool...
Ready for an adventure?
Go horse riding in the nearby Parco delle Madonie or mountain biking or climbing in the hills behind the farmhouse.
Alternatively, you can get involved in daily life on the farm, helping to milk the cows, herd the sheep and, if the time is right, pick the olives!
