All the pleasures of a vacation in Sicily
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- A dip in the pool against the backdrop of the Sicilian countryside
- Slow down to match the leisurely pace of this traditional land
- The best Siclian cuisine...organically grown!
An agriturismo in the true sense of the word, Villa Dafne blends rural tradition with warm hospitality, showing guests a richly authentic side of Sicily and the Palermo countryside and letting them discover a unique way to spend their vacation.
Right at Home though Far from Home
Villa Dafne welcomes guests with spacious and light-filled rooms decorated in a updated country style which perfectly represents the colors and textures of the Siclian countryside while still providing guests with all the modern comforts and technologies that they need for a relaxing stay.
Design, architecture, amenities...every detail at Villa Dafne is aimed at highlighting their philosophy of hospitality: "feel like home though far from home".
Guests can choose between the charming rooms, which are elegant yet informal, or the independent mini-apartments with sweeping views over the valley surrounding the villa. Let yourself be soothed by the quiet sounds of nature and slow your pace to match that of this timeless countryside while you enjoy the views from your room with a good book or glass of Sicilian wine at hand.
The Colors of Sicily from the Turquoise Waters of the Pool
The sun on your skin, the scents of the lush garden, the cloudless sky: this is all you need for a perfect day by the large outdoor pool, with a smaller wading pool adjacent for the younger guests.
While you soak in the cool blue water, you can take in the colorful surrounding countryside with its thousand shades of green and gold: all this to remind you that you are in the heart of Sicily.
The Best of Sicilian Cuisine, Organic!
Eating well means basing your dishes on products that are local and seasonal, and grown with respect to the environment and nature's balance. Villa Dafne adheres to this philosphy in the in-house restaurant, which serves strictly organic products grown on the property according to long local tradition.
Sicily's famed eggplants, basil, cheese, and heirloom "siccagno" tomatoes are all grown and produced at Villa Dafne, where you can discover Sicily's rich local cuisine, with traditional dishes and recipes that are famous across the globe.
Traditional antipasti, filling pasta dishes, roasted and grilled meats from the farm: you can opt for a full dinner or light lunch at the agriturismo and Villa Dafne will make sure that you fall in love with Sicily's cuisine!
If you want to venture further afield than the poolside sundeck, Villa Dafne is the perfect base for outdoor sports, excursions, and activities to fill your days, including hiking, horseback riding, daytrips to nearby archaeological sites and natural reserves, and cooking classes...enjoy every moment of your time in the countryside by taking advantage of all this area has to offer!
