Dimora dell'Olivastro is a 6 room boutique hotel in Favignana, a tiny Italian island to the west of Sicily. Surrounded by olive trees and with gorgeous sea views, this charming boutique hotel in Favignana offers peace and tranquillity. Owners Fabio and Ginevra also own an organic farm and orchard and good food, as well as true Sicilian hospitality, is guaranteed.
Being in Favignana is all about slowing down and enjoying the natural surroundings: swim in the turquoise sea, chat to the fisherman down by the harbour or at the quaint port of Punta Lunga, watch the sunset behind the tiny neighbouring island of Marettimo and visit the lighthouse at Punta Marsala. Bikes, scooters and car hire can all be organised through Dimora dell'Olivastro as can boat excursions, massages and holistic treatments.
Breakfast at Dimora dell'Olivastro is served under the shade of the porch and typically includes freshly baked bread, fruit, honey produced by the owners bees, eggs from the owners hens and other locally grown or homemade produce. At sunset, a spread of savoury aperitifs and Sicilian specialties is served in the house against a backdrop of candles and gentle music.
The 6 air-conditioned rooms at Dimora dell'Olivastro have been renovated ready for 2014. Spacious and bright, each room has outside space (either a garden or terrace), vast sunken stonework baths or outdoor showers under the shade of the olive trees. Some come with modern four-posters, others have exposed brick walls but all rooms in this boutique hotel in Favignana have elegant furnishings.
