Resort Susafa

Stunning surroundings that have remained unchanged for years...

Staying as a guest at Susafa, you really are stepping into an older, more genuine lifestyle, where you can restore your deeper sense of time and enjoy the gentle rhythm of country life.

Masseria Susafa is owned and run by the Saeli-Rizzuto family, who have owned and farmed the property for five generations, carefully passing down their centuries-old, fascinating country traditions. Today, the owners invite guests to share that genuine country life, the only modification being that the old-fashioned austerity of the past has been carefully substituted with all the comforts of a beautifully furnished, tasteful holiday resort. Susafa is the story of a whole area, with all its events and deeds involving local people and places - a microcosm that speaks of and testifies to an older Sicily, which still exists today. 

The construction of the houses was almost certainly completed around 1890. They were built next to a nucleus of older buildings that can still be seen, dating back to the second half of the 1700s. The older structures belonging to the Catholic church were bought by the Saeli family after the unification of Italy. 

The high, thick, fortified walls protected the inhabitants from the much-feared raids by brigands; at sundown, the doors were bolted and nobody was allowed in or out until the following morning. Guards would spend the night behind the iron grilles, watching for any suspicious movement, ready to shoot at the first sign of danger. Here, as well as in the fields, a collective lifestyle was lived out in miniscule proportions, but represented a whole world of country life. 

The room with the old millstone, where the wine used to be produced, has been converted into a bar area and a music and Home Theatre area, with a 110" screen. It's a comfortable room, perfect for relaxing alone or in company, perhaps sipping sweet wines from our bar such as Passito, Moscato, Malvasia or Marsala, some of the choicest wines of the Sicilian tradition, or other specialities such as an amaro or some grappa…or perfect for spending a warm evening curled up on the sofa in front of the fire on colder days. The family photographs on the walls show scenes from farming life around the homestead, and are a fascinating testimony to the history of the Saeli family; they give the room a warm, welcoming feel. What used to be the old calves' stalls has now been transformed into a games room with a TV, games table and a collection of books and magazines for guests. The terrace, once used to lay the almonds and tomato extract out in the sun, provides an extraordinary view over the whole surrounding countryside. During the bright days of spring, you can enjoy the first warmth of the sun on comfortable sun beds. Throughout the hot summer, a canopy provides a cool, pleasant break from the heat as you sip an iced drink of water and 'zammu' (aniseed). Along the same theme of all-round care, guests are also invited to relax and cool down at our lovely swimming pool, for water is another important element of the earth in total relaxation.

The restaurant "Il Granaio" is a setting with extraordinary character, the stone walls and the austere architecture of its carefully restored pointed arches, the great fireplace at the end of the room, the warm terracotta floors and the carefully designed lighting make it an impressive room that is really quite unique. 
"Il Granaio" offers menus based on Italian cuisine, with a special emphasis on the immense variety of local traditional gastronomy. In our dishes, we use the very fresh ingredients, produced by ourselves or locally, and selected personally by the chef in order to guarantee products that are so fresh, they were picked that morning. The wine list includes some of the best wines produced in Sicily, as well as a small selection of some of the best-known national wines. 

The farm has 13 guestrooms, with a sleeping capacity of 40 places, as well as an apartment with three double bedrooms, a bathroom and kitchen for those who wish to stay longer and enjoy a little more independence.  Each room has an en-suite bathroom with shower and has adjustable climate-control. Guests may choose from the standard double, triple, four-bed or superior double. The rooms have been created from the homes that were originally built for workers and their families. Restoration work on the rooms has been carefully carried out to maximize comfort and ensure hotel quality, without losing the feel of a Sicilian country home with wooden beams, traditional plaster walls, floors in Sicilian terracotta, with original antique tiles added as a feature, and exposed stone walls.

The closest airport is Palermo (Punta Raisi), about 110km away. Catania airport is 130km away. 
The best way to reach us is by taking the A19 road from Palermo to Catania, and taking the exit at Tremonzelli (also marked as km73 along the road). 
Follow indications to Contrada Susafa for about 9km, or to Vallelunga, and you will quickly find the way by following signs.
