Stephania and Francesco were the most wonderful hosts. We enjoyed spending time at the house and learning about the Madonie mountains. Stephania is very knowledgeable about the all of the medieval towns in the mountains and gave us wonderful recommendations for dining and shopping as well as sightseeing. Our first night she cooked us a delicious vegetarian meal. In fact, we enjoyed her so much we cooked dinner for her one night! Every morning a delicious breakfast was waiting for us. Stephania cooks all of breads and pastries herself. The structure is actually two houses. She and Francesco live in one home and we stayed in the other. It was comfortable and cosy. They were very respectful of our privacy. The outdoor sitting area provided amazing views of the towns and farmlands in the rolling hills. I would love to go back.
