Staying at this place was the best part of our trip to Sicilia. The house is great, the rooms are spacious and lovely furnished with antique sicilian furniture, the bathrooms are nice, there's nothing missing, really. Then there's a lot of silence... It's a perfect place to rest, to disconnect from everything. The view is extraordinary, the mountains, the green plains... The air is so fresh, it just turns breathing into pleasure. There are no hordes of tourists, it's almost a wild nature out there - but you're just few minutes driving from Cefalú.
But all of it, no matter how really wonderful it is, is not the best about this place. The best is the hosts, Maria and Fabrizio, a lovely sicilian couple. When you travel to Sicily and hang around for a couple of days, you'll inevitably notice that sicilians are very, very hospitable, but Maria and Fabrizio are more than that, they just make you feel you're home. And the food... Maria is a hell of a chef, the suppers we had at Terre Di Himera were definitely the best meals in Sicily. Fabrizio produces his own olive oil, and you really should try it as it's simply exceptional.
Anyway... There's so much to tell about this place, it'd just take me too long. For us, it was an incredibly lovely experience, so when we go back to Sicily (and we certainly will), we'll definitely drop by Terre Di Himera for a couple of days to enjoy it's peace, silence, freshness and - of course - Maria and Fabrizio's kindness.
Regards from Ivan, Marian and Masha!
