A little out of the way, outside Marsala, but what a surprise. This property is tastefully appointed, with very clean and comfortable rooms. The grounds, pool, terrace, restaurant and all public rooms are an invitation to relax. The room and bathroom were excellent and waking up to look over the vineyards was definitely a treat. As with ALL Sicilans, the... More

Donna Franca is perfect place to stay if you want a simple relaxing holiday. Pool and buildings are stunnig but simply furnished. Staff fall over themselves to help. Not sure if it was because it was later in the season but the restaurant (and bar) shut at Siesta time (1-4pm) so if you were wanting lunch or an early sundowner... More

Baglio Donna Franca has lovely position looking out to sea. The pool area is very restful, the pool is a good size, there are plenty of deck chairs and loungers. The restaurant is lovely and so are the staff. The main disappointment for us was the dampness of the room which was situated on the ground floor in the old... More

We spent a couple of days of sheer relaxation at Donna Franca. Rooms were very comfortable , views all around and surrounded by vineyards. And views of the Edagi IslndsVery peaceful . A good base to see Marsala, Trapani, Erice, San Vito Lo Capo, Scopello and Castellamare Sul Golfo. We also took a hydrofoil to the island of Favignana from... More

Amazing stay in a traditional Sicilian lodging "baglio"! We went there for our friend's wedding and decided to stay another 3 days. We rented a car at the Florio airport in Trapani, which is only a 20-minute drive from Donna Franca!!! Use GPS (indications are available on the road for Donna Franca as well) because there are so many little... More

For anyone flying into Trapani and wanting a great start to your holiday this is the place. I can't believe there was such a great place only 20 minutes from a budget airport. We loved the style, food and ambience. Pool is really great. Watching the sunset from the pool while drinking lovely white wine from the estate... This was... More

Location is amazing, totally quiet, unforgettable view. Food is excellent accompanied with very good house wines in reasonable prices (however it is bit difficult to call them cheap). Breakfast is of big variety and this probably was the richest breakfast we have ever had in Italy.. Majority of rooms are spacious and comfortable, so accomodation is great unless you are... More

We stayed here 3 times in the past 5 years. We actually found it without the GPS first time (my wife is a great co-pilot), but it helps to have it. The rooms are great, the staff are brilliant, the food is excellent, and the wine is the best. Marsala is only 40 -50 mins away and Erice is just... More

We had our GPS which almost got us to the hotel but we had to keep our eyes open for the signs posted on the way. It is a lovely property with a beautiful pool We ordered a bottle of white wine (their own winery) and took it to the pool and had a nice afternoon during siesta in town.... More

Our final stay was with Baglio Donna Franca. We loved it. It met all our expectations and had a great time here. The food was really good (especially the fish), the wine from their own vineyards was delicious and the rooms spacious and clean. From the swimming pool you have a spectacular view. It is funny that a lof of... More
