Terre di Himera is a wonderful retreat in the quiet countryside inland from the temple and museum at Termini Imerese. The converted police station is rustic and lovingly renovated with large ceilinged stone rooms and modern comforts. Maria and Fabrizio are generous hosts and everyone who visits must stay for dinner. Maria's simple, locally sourced and seasonal dishes are delicious, the recommended wines too. Maria provides plenty of info on the food's sourcing.
I would recommend bringing your own transport here though, so you are able to explore the nearby hill villages of the Madonie National Park. Otherwise, just kick back and relax with the views over the olive and almond groves.
