My husband and I were so excited to visit while on our honeymoon, but due to baggage issues at the airport we were forced to stay in Palermo and unable to travel to Favignana. We contacted her immediately prior to coming and she refused to refund ANY of the money we paid for the room for both nights. We were... More

Short word to say how special our stay was with the team at Dimora. The resort it self is very beautiful and has an incredible vibe and feeling to it. Our room was perfect, and we almost didn't want to leave it each morning (Timo Room). Breakfast is simple, but delicious and food and wine were even better. Above all... More

The most difficult part of our stay was finding Dimora. After struggling with that, we arrived tired and temperamental. Francesca worked her magic on us, and, in 15 minutes, we were content to be staying indefinitely. The wine and appetizers together with her warm and caring treatment made us feel very welcome. We stayed in Ficondina. The room was lovely... More

Where do I even start! My partner and I had such a wonderful stay here, Fabio, Ginevra, Francesca & all the staff made us feel so welcomed and everyone was extremely helpful! The meals we shared with other guests at the B&B were some of the best we had in our month long tour of Europe and the accommodation itself... More

A beautiful place in a stunning location... charming, great attention to detail, wonderful views, Dimora is impeccably maintained. Highest rate fully justified. We stayed in the “Mandorlo” room, it was very quiet, beds were great and atmosphere very romantic. Most rooms overlook the sunset with private terrace. Fresh breakfast every morning was wonderful, organic products fm their own farm, chic... More

I echo the other reviewers in saying that we hope that not too many other find out about this hidden gem. It is one of our top experiences for sure. The B&B is off the beaten path, but still very accessible to the beaches, port and main town area. Francesca helped us arrange everything, from the moped to the taxies... More

A beautifully designed bed and breakfast on Favignana island that is part of a working farm. The b&b is nestled against the hillside under old pines with lovely gardens and views toward Maritimo island at sunset. The room we had was bright with a small sitting room, two terraces, one with a big lounging bed and outdoor shower with shallow... More

Quite simply a beautiful, amazing place with the kindest, most thoughtful hosts you are ever likely to meet. The breakfast is indulgent, the sunsets breathtaking and the rooms and grounds carefully designed to the smallest detail.

I don't really want to write this review for purely selfish reasons. I don't want this beautiful place to become popular. I want it all to myself. From the moment you arrive up the dusty, bumpy farm road and enter the beautiful pine garden, you know it is something special. We were welcomed like old friends. The villa we stayed... More

Favignana itself is a wonderful place and this property heightened that experience all the more.The views and rooms are magnificent; photos will never do them justice. The family and staff are so welcoming and endlessly accomodating. And as an added benefit, Ginervra, Fabio and their daughter Giulia speak perfect English! I cannot reccomend Dimora enough!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There is a place, on the island of Favignana, where the worm Sicilian hospitality meets a welcoming and elegant surrounding. It's a place dedicated to the seekers of quiet and intimacy, to those who wish to stop the hands of time, to relax and connect with uncontaminated nature, to those who love the sea and love contemplating the colors in complete tranquility. It's a place drown with smells and Mediterranean colors immersed in stains of wild-olives and surrounded by the view of the sea on the horizon. Dimora dell'Olivastro arises at the feet of the mount of St. Catherine, among the dry stone walls and the ancient olive trees that forever stand against the sea breeze; it faces the west and looks over one of the most striking and bewitching views of Favignana; the island of Marettimo and the lighthouse of Punta Sottile. With the colors of the sunset the sight is unforgettable. In that atmosphere of natural beauty, Dimora dell'Olivastro offers charming hospitality surrounded by detail studied elegance. ... more   less
