“Awesome”
Reviewed 8 May 2011

Wow. This is the true Sicily "castle" experience. Immaculate in every detail. We stayed two nights using it as a base for exploring Scavi del Monte Jato and Monreale. Beautiful setting in the mountains, 40 minutes from the Palermo airport = DELIGHTFUL! The meals in the evening were the best we had in 2 weeks in Sicily. Oh, MY!

Room Tip: They are all great.

Although the address is Monreale, this agriturismo is actually located in the Jato valley some distance SSW of Palermo and Monreale. The mountainous valley is very picturesque but unfortunately shares the Palermo problem of litter and garbage piled in places. The agritorismo is very comfortable and spacious, the sleeping quarters more modern than the ancient tower they are built onto but still in a rustic style. In addition to the vineyards and orchards, there is an artificial lake/pond and artificial waterfall complete with gnome which may add or subtract from the charm of the place, depending on your tastes. They also have horses and ostriches although the latter didn't appear on the menu as far as I know. Breakfast was good and included delicious cakes and tortes in addition to the usual continental breakfast items. The one dinner we had was good but not great with the antipasti the best part (don't miss the pumpkin caponata). The staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly. The restaurant is popular with the locals for Sunday lunch so expect it to be busy at this time. There are hiking trails nearby in the hills if you can find them.

This special place with extremely gracious host/owner who works tirelessly to ensure the comfort and enjoyment of her guests is wonderful. Spent three nights here that placed too quickly. The food is outstanding and if one is fond of cannolli's you cannot find a better one-anywhere!!!. The house wine and oil are from the vineyardsand groves onsite. The view is fabulous looking out over fam and mountains with trails for the adventurous nearby. Cooking classes are available for four or more. Will return again in the future.

We were there for 3 nights, and is a dream place. If you don't like the confusion of the city and you prefer the country side, don't loose this place. Is around 35km from Palermo but is worth it. The personel is a amazing, the food great, and the rooms are fantastic. Everything is done with attention and good taste. For what you get, the price is meanless.
The owner is a great person, always taking care of you and just before we left she offered us a bottle of olive oil produced by them self.
I will live in that place! Thanks for the wonderful time we spent there.
