The hotel is situated about 15 mins from the valley of the Temples in Favara.
Favara is not a lovely city at all and I worried as we made our way through essentially an enormous building site. We persevered and fell upon this gem of a hotel. We loved the decoration, IKEA or not, the rooms were chic and the shower for two people absolutely amazing, as was the bathroom in general. The room was really well-sized and the top floor sun terrace is beautiful with a lovely view on the lit-up church at night. Favara offers little and we used this hotel as a base for the valley of the Temples and for the beach in San Leone which was really very nice indeed.
The owner, Antonio, is very hands-on and is passionate about his hotel and his restaurant and has plans to expand.
The food was exceptionally good and breakfast was excellent - with fresh juices and eggs to order (we never had such an excellent breakfast at such a low price). Antonio is knowledgeable about wines and suggested a delicious sicilian red for dinner which was spot on.
Antonio is one of the many young entrepreneurs we met in Sicily who believes in offering the best of Sicily to his guests and we would definitely recommend this hotel which was a million times better than the 4* we had in Palermo.
