Masseria Susafa

SICILY, ITALY
2 - 4 Persons
From €200

Masseria Susafa is surrounded by magnificent farmland, herds of sheep and belled cows. It is a working farm in Sicily’s rustic, hilly Landscape. The farm has been under the stewardship of the Saeli-Rizzuto family for five generations and this can still be felt today in how the Masseria is operated. It is a fabulous stone structure set in lovely grounds with everything you can wish for, such as a bar, restaurant, pool and onsite parking.

The 18 guest rooms retain their original ceiling beams and antique tiles in an environment of age-softened austerity. It is small farmhouse but it feels spacious, with lots of calmness.  Everything reads practical minimalism, from the beds’ clean country linen and the worn window shutters to the spacious, en-suite bathrooms. The secluded location makes it a great place to relax and unwind!

With regard to sustainability, Susafa wants to respond to the call of a return to origins, to good food, to the different ingredients according to the seasons and to the rhythms that still today mark their production and harvesting. They have their own vegetable and herb gardens, an orchard where  they have recouped native species and reintroduced ancient varieties of fruit typical of the Madonie mountains and of course their organic olive tree farm!

you'll love

  • Strolling through the fragrant gardens and admiring the views which reach for miles over the beautiful rolling hills
  • The set menu of the restaurant: very nice, simple and authentic Sicilian food. The restaurant uses super fresh produce, sourced locally or grown on the estate
  • Watching a movie in the ‘cinema room’ (the bedrooms have no television)
  • Cooking! On site, Italian cooking classes by the estate chef can be arranged
  • The homemade organically produced olive oil (also bring a bottle for at home!)

Good to know

  • It’s quite remote, you need to eat there each night really but it’s well worth it
  • There are triple and quadruple rooms, and there is also an apartment, which sleeps six
  • It’s an hour’s drive to Cefelu on the coast but well worth the visit
  • It’s a long winding road to get there and the entry road is a bit rough but once you are there you won’t want to leave
  • Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free dishes and kids-menu are available on request
  • The interior of the rooms is in keep with the rustic farm house setting
  • The nearest airports are Palermo (110 KM) and Catania (130 KM)

 

Members say

“Staying at Susafa means coming into contact with one of the many souls of Sicily. We stayed here when our children were 2 and 4 and absolutely loved everything. There is a fabulous pool where the children swam after eating a stunning breakfast each morning. The grounds are filled with hammocks between the trees, and expanses of lawns for the children to run around without disturbing anyone.”
