Masseria Susafa is strategically located in the heart of Sicily, a few km from the Madonie Nature Park and one hour's drive from many cultural attractions: Palermo, Cefalù, the Valley of the Temples of Agrigento, the Roman Villa del Casale at Piazza Armerina, and stunning Sperlinga.
The fascinating Sicilian countryside surrounds Masseria Susafa, a fascinating place now turned into a hospitality structure, which still preserves the memory of a time when days where spent on the fields and at night one returned to the sheltering quiet walls of the great farmhouse. This rural heritage is kept alive by the Saeli-Rizzuto family, farmers and landowners for five generations, who have coupled the austere structure with the pleasures of cosy and refined hospitality.
Time flows slowly at Susafa and the wide spaces of the Masseria provide the perfect backdrop for leisure moments, while the large fireplace warms the intimate lounge area. The ancient cellar is now home to the Wine Bar and the Hi Fi - Home Theatre room. The large terrace commands a grand view of the surrounding countryside, while the swimming pool provides a cool break when the surrounding hills turn golden.
Wooden ceilings, floors in cotto tiles and original décor: the 14 rooms of the Masseria join together the warm atmospheres of Sicilian country houses with the modern amenities and services. All rooms have en-suite with shower, heating/air conditioning and mini-bar.

The old granary has been turn into the restaurant but has kept its name and fascinating ambience: exposed stone walls, floor in Sicilian cotto tiles, a large fireplace and warm lighting. The Granary uses super fresh produce, sourced locally or grown on the estate, and pays homage to the rich regional and local tradition with a carefully selected menu and a refined wine list. A staple product is organic olive oil Susafa. The Masseria also organises tailor-made cooking classes, during which our chefs will be happy to let you into the secrets of Sicilian cuisine.
