About the rooms

The fourteen rooms overlooking the sea and the Menfi countryside take their name from the herbs you see when you walk on the property. Each room has a warm Mediterranean style, a terrace (except for 1 room), 1 king bed or 2 queen beds.

Our favourite room

'Room with a view' Artemisia, Maggiorana and Menta have more privacy overlooking the vines and the sea in the distance.

Enjoy a refreshing swim

The infinity pool is set among green vineyards and cool olive trees, ideal for a refreshing dip and enjoying the warmth of the Sicilian sun. Want to immerse yourself in the clear waters of the sea of Porto Palo di Menfi? Just a few kilometers from the hotel you will discover a quiet unspoiled beach where you can completely unwind. During the summer months, you have free access to the private beach.

Work out and wind down

Those who like it more active, can use the hotel's gym, go cycling in the area or participate in grape and olive picking. Relax in the hammam afterwards. You can also taste wines and olive oil, visit wineries and olive oil presses and participate in guided excursions to cultural and natural highlights of Sicily.
