Bucolic bliss in this Sicilian farmhouse turned boutique escape that celebrates the beauty of nature
Created as a haven in harmony with nature, Susafa is a 200-year-old farmhouse that raises the spirits and soothes the soul. Walking inside feels a little like stepping back in time, as this family-run estate introduces a new generation of guests to centuries-old rural life. From the tranquil bedrooms to the orchard a sense of stillness reigns over it all.
Yet, behind the scenes there is always something happening at Susafa. Chefs pick herbs and vegetables from the gardens, ready for dinner – or for a Sicilian cookery class. The family harvest olives to press for their own, organic oil. And sommeliers select wines for guided tastings. In the meantime, you can rest, recharge and soak up the spellbinding setting – whether it’s beside the lagoon-like pool or strolling among the cherry trees.
To immerse yourself in Sicilian culture, as well as the landscape, Susafa hosts all sorts of inspiring experiences. You can help with the cherry harvest in June, learn the art of fresh ravioli or Sicilian sauces in the kitchen, sample regional wines or take a tour of the gardens. And when the sun shines, the rippling hills that surround Susafa make for perfect walking country.
Enjoy your stay!
