A return visit and worth the trip. Great rooms, great views, great food and great service. The masseria is away from the world and a great place for total relaxation. Summertime allows for gentle relaxation by the pool but also walk along the wheat fields which surround the hotel. Take the opportunity (if you can) of buying their cherry jam or olive oil.

such a wonderful stay at susafa -- a passionately family-run masseria between palermo and catania -- in the middle of some of the most beautiful countryside in sicily..... no need to stay in palermo -- stay here ! and susafa close (enough) to many sites in sicily -- the family story of the masseria is special -- and the comfort, food and service very special --- top quality -- the real thing.....

I followed the recommended driving route on the Masseria Susafa website to get there - all I can say, is that if that's the good road, I dread to think how bad the bad alternative road is! I'm starting to suspect that the more upmarket the agriturismo, the more potholed and crumbling the roads to get there! I was very glad to be in my little hired Fiat Panda and not a sports car with low slung suspension. First the good points - this is clearly an upmarket establishment, wihich has really made the most of the core historic buildings. The restaurant space would be amazing for a celebration party or wedding reception, and the bar, with the old wine making equipment, large comfy sofa and roaring log fire when I arrived in early October, was equally atmospheric. I got the sense Susafa aims itself at couples, with offers of romantic dinners and picnics, and I was the only solo traveller there. As I was only there for one night, I wasn't able to take advantage of the cooking classes (offered for an extra charge). On arrival I was given a fresh pressed juice (lemon, yellow melon - clearly in season - and something else) while being talked through the offer. Susafa has a big emphasis on local seasonal food, and I went for a wander around the garden, down to the veg patch which supplies the restaurant. The food at dinner that evening was excellent. By far the best bread I'd eaten in Sicily (slices of 3 different loaves, including one made from ancient grains) - more like good UK bread in texture, rather than the slightly chewy bread with sesame seeds more common in Sicily. The bread is made from grain grown at Susafa, and the olive oil for dipping is also their own produce. For dinner I chose the rice with "flavours from our garden", cheese and a pumpkin cream. After years of disappointing risotto in England, finally, in the middle of nowhere in Sicily, one worth writing home about. Hallelujah! Perfect texture, wonderful herbal flavour (definitely thyme), not overwhelmed with cheese, and the smooth pumpkin cream in a ring around the outside on the plate. This was followed by a wonderful almond parfait, ringed with very rich chocolate sauce, and a delicious soft part-cooked fig on top. The food at breakfast the next morning was also good, including a selection of delicious local cheeses, interesting little biscuity things (one slightly orangey), more fresh melon, freshly centrifuged fruit juices, and more of the wonderful bread. A minus point was a lack of decently hot water for my shower on a rather chilly evening. There was a nagging notice on the bathroom wall (only in English) about water shortages in Sicily and not wasting water by running the tap while brushing teeth etc, but even after running the shower turned all the way to max heat, for several minutes, the water never got above lukewarm. For 165 Euros a night B&B, I at least expect a proper hot shower! Susafa's anti-Covid policies were the most irritating of anywhere I stayed in Sicily. Apart from the usual notices about masks on the door of every building, there was a lecture on masks as part of the welcome. A totally unnecessary "sanitised" sticker was across the door to my room (which reminded me of the stickers across doors to seal off a crime scene to preserve evidence in American cop shows). Wasteful and unnecessary. As in the pre-Covid days, I simply expect my room to be clean! Most irritating of all was the assumption that all travellers have smartphones with QR code reading apps. As a late and reluctant adopter of a smartphone (only when my last old Sony Ericsson finally died) I don't have many apps and don't have a QR reader. When I went up to the bar for a pre-dinner drink I was told the drinks menu was available by scanning a QR code (which I could not do). I went over just to sit on the sofa in the bar by the fire while waiting for dinnner, having muttered something about mentioning this policy on Tripadvisor. I wasn't going to simply order a glass of anything without at least seeing a price (given that the bags of mixed nuts in my room were 7 Euros according to the (printed paper!) mini bar price list!) Several minutes later, the member of staff magiced up and brought me a paper drinks price list, and I ordered a glass of Nero d'Avola. Similarly, when I went into the restaurant, there was a laminated card with a QR code on the table, not a menu. I had to beg for a paper menu. Given the cost of a room or meal at Susafa, and the fact it's not a city centre restaurant with lots of diners coming and going over the course of an evening, if they are particularly Covid-paranoid, they could afford to print a fresh paper menu for every dinner table for every diner. And in my room, if I wanted to look at any information about Susafa and its activities ... I would have to scan a QR code. (Yet they were able to print and place in an envelope in my room a slightly pretentious welcome letter written as if by the buildings describing the history of the place.) While the breakfast delicacies were arranged on a table in the dining room, unlike nearly everywhere else I stayed, this was not a buffet where one could help oneself to as much or little food as one wanted. Instead, I was followed round by a waitress with a notepad, to whom I had to give my choices, then sit back down and wait a good 10 minutes for food to be brought. It's not as if the dining room was so packed with guests that social distancing round the table, or going up one at a time would be difficult. Being followed round made me fee,l not safe, but as if Susafa didn't trust their guests (perish the thought that one might take an extra croissant!) Perhaps before the world went mad in early 2020 Susafa would have made for a wonderful relaxed stay, but their policies detracted from this big time. Wait until the world has come to its senses and then go and enjoy their delicious food!

Dear Eleanor, Thank you for your awesome feedback. Starting from the road, it is true is not very comfortable and that is why we try to offer our guests the warmest welcome ever and an unforgettable experience so that any discomfort in reaching us will be only a memory. We are really sorry to know, you had some inconveniences during the stay. It will be our pleasure going them across and explain in details our reasons with regards to the rooms difficulty and to the prevention measures due to Covid 19. We regret about the missing hot water for the shower. If we had known about the problem, we’d have called the maintenance department to check and fix it, to offer you the maximum comfort. Furthermore, we are really sorry you perceived irritating the covid prevention measures. It is absolutely not our intention create panic in our guests. All the prevention, as signage throughout the facility about wearing the mask in all indoors spaces and the revisited breakfast buffet, were issued and recommended by the government. The measures were arranged before our reopening to protect the health of our guests, keeping them informed of the procedures took in place. The room sanitization sticker was arranged to communicate the guests our cleaning and disinfection actions before their arrival. It is known that the first source of infection can be surfaces which are repeatedly touched by many subjects. In order to prevent any possible contamination, we decided to create QR codes to save all information (e.g. menus, wine and cocktail list) into the own smartphone. We obviously know not all our guests are provided with QR readers, so in these cases it is our pleasure to print them a copy to have all information, as mentioned by you. We are delighted to hear you loved all our buildings and hope to transmit Susafa’s history and tradition in the best way. In addition, we are pleased you had a good dinner experience, especially with our ‘risotto’. Our goal is offering a choice of dishes created by the inspiration of our Chef with our property’s products from our vegetable garden. We welcome more than positively all the constructive feedback of our guests, every detail which can helps us to improve, is important for our continuous growth process. We hope to see you in the future. Best regards, Susafa team

After 3 nights at Susafa, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. First things first, there’s a ‘tricky’ road to navigate on the final straight. It was pouring down when my partner and I arrived which made it even trickier.... but what an oasis when we arrived. It’s a beautiful, calm, welcoming retreat. Our room (Suite 4) was spacious and comfortable although to be honest you’d be more likely to spend time in the grounds than in your room. There are loads of places to sit and chill; in the garden, by the pool, in the bar by the fire, on a raised deck area with views to die for.... you get the picture. The food though, is why we’d go back. 3 tasting menus every evening plus the a la carte to choose from. So delicious, absolute top quality ingredients from the gardens of Masseria Susafa or surrounding villages all served in a fabulously lit, atmospheric dining room. Special mention to Vincenzo who looked after us in the restaurant. He knew every part of the menu inside out and gave great wine recommendations. Absolutely fantastic host. Overall, a great few days (despite some decidedly dodgy weather). We’re already talking about when (not if) we go next year.

A truly beautiful estate with impeccable service! Breakfast and dinner were amazing and of very high quality - they even found a great work-around for the breakfast buffet in Covid times - there is a buffet with lots of choices, but you have to order what you want with the staff. The Masseria is also very strict about all COVID regulations, so we felt very safe! We can highly recommend it! Would come again!
