Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A truly amazing and beautiful place, we stayed here for my husband’s 70th birthday and it was perfect, Pina went above and beyond with excellent communication before and during our stay, arranging a beautiful and delicious birthday meal with stunning cake, making the day an unforgettable experience, the food here is 5 stars, the staff were fantastic, the room cleaned to a very high standard daily, the lovely cats always around to greet us and very friendly, the rooms are beautifully finished, we have truly enjoyed our time here, thank you to all the staff especially Pina for an unforgettable and amazing stay at what I would say is the most incredible place to stay in Sicily.

I had some work meetings in the area and wanted to stay locally at an agriturismo. Villa Dafne was the perfect fit. I stayed in a room in the main building- it was quiet, comfortable and recently updated (plenty of plugs including USB outlets and a very nice bathroom with a great shower). Breakfasts were wonderfully varied, something for every kind of eater. Dinner here is incredibly generous with something new every night, all typical of the region. I booked a half board room and did breakfast and dinner. I was never left hungry! I wish I had more time to use the pool because it looked delightful. The grounds and space is well manicured and all of the staff are very friendly and welcoming. I would stay here again and will recommend to friends and colleagues. Grazie mille, Villa Dafne.

Villa Dafne is the perfect place to feel relaxed and looked after. Once you are out of the hustle and bustle of Palermo, and into the tranquil mountains of central Sicily you will feel immediately at ease. A warm welcome from all at Villa Dafne certainly makes you realise you are in for a treat. The accommodation is perfect, the food plentiful and great quality, the views stunning and the cats are so cute! During your stay you must do the farm tour and cooking class, so much fun and you get to meet your fellow guests from around the world. You may need a car if you wish to explore wider but Roccapalumba train station will take you pretty much everywhere you need to go. Up there with the best holiday you will ever have and thank you to all at Villa Dafne for looking after us. The most perfect example of Agrotourism you will find. We will be back. We miss you already. Steve and Sarah x

Out of the way in the Sicilian countryside bit of a trek from the airport but we'll worth it. Excellent food, the room was basic but had everything you need and clean, the staff are really friendly special thanks to Alexandra on reception a really lovely friendly lady. The farm tour was interesting and Guiseppi is brilliant, we also did the cookery course which we really enjoyed again Guiseppi a man of many talents did the cookery course. Not a place to go if your looking for a lively holiday it's more of a escape from the world type of place. Highly recommend and we will definitely be returning.

What an amazing holiday. My daughter and I spent a week at Villa Dafne, and it was absolutely amazing. The room was clean and very comfortable, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, even though we couldn’t speak a word of Italian, they were so patient and helped with everything we needed. By the end of the week, they felt more like friends then staff. The highlight, I have to say was the food, so much flavour, and you definitely won’t go hungry. The setting is beautiful, do yourself a favour and have an early start to watch the sunrise. We loved everything about Villa Dafne. Can’t wait to return.

Dear Mr. Cook, It is very lovely reading your kind words about us. You had a long stay here, so you and your family had the possibility to tried different experiences about our agritourism: Sicilian street food, tour of the farm, cooking course. It is nice hearing that you love our way to cook cheese! We want to tell you that before leaving from here you forgot some items into the rooms. We have no contact with you and that's why we didn't send this message before. Please, send us an email at booking@villadafne.it and we will tell you more about the items. So we can rest in contact with you. Thank you so much. Best Regards. Giuseppe Mascarella.

Really amazing experience, totally relaxing break away from it all. Breath taking views and fantastic food and hospitality. We can’t wait to go back. Take an extension lead for use in the room, and reception were really helpful sorting taxis for us into the village. Guiseppe and family are top notch hosts and go out of their way to help.
