Dimora dell'Olivastro is a special place that offers the luxury of a boutique hotel with a feeling of a personal villa. Enjoy the views of the sea and the island of Marettimo or a mysterious Mediterranean garden from your room. Each room has been renovated and offers an outdoor space, whether it's a garden or a terrace. Wash off the sea salt in the stonework baths or in the outdoor showers under the olive trees. Wander through the grapevines, the fig and almond trees. Find the freshest herbs, filling up the air with scents of rosemary, mint, oregano, thyme and sage. The hens roam around freely through the orchards and produce fresh eggs daily. You will find an oasis of peace at Dimora dell'Olivastro.
Favignana's unique landscape can only be found between Sicily and Africa. The magic here has been described as “bare rock… one of those rocks that so abound the sea between Sicily and the flow of Africa”. The sea is the hero, following you wherever you go; in the turquoise and deep blue hues throughout the island, in its pastel reflections in the sky or in the salty fresh air. Explore the island by bike, scooter, donkey or boat. Visit the light house of Punta Sottil. Slow living is the essence of the land and the people here.
Traditional freshly baked bread, fruit picked from the trees around the Villa, In-house prepared aperitifs. Wildflower, thyme or thistle honey made by the owners.
To get to the most remote and beautiful locations, one has to be prepared for a lengthy journey. Fly into Falcone Borsellino Airport from most major European airports or drive through the country to port of Trapani to get here by water.
