“The “House of the Wind” is wonderfully situated high in the Madonie mountains with wonderful views of the surrounding hills and countryside. The accommodations were modest as one would expect of an late 19th century farmhouse but everything has been updated to modern standards. The building faces out over a shaded courtyard where you can sit and enjoy the aforementioned views over a glass of wine or Prosecco if you prefer. Apart from some cowbells that could be heard in the distance, it was very quiet and relaxing. Just what one needs after long hot days of sightseeing. The B&B is located about 13kms from the main highway but easy to get to. The location is well situated for day trips to the various towns, villages and historical sights that should be on your itinerary -Palermo, Cefalù, Villa Romana, Agrigento....We strongly recommend you take one of the numerous walks through the hills for the views and the sheer beauty of the place. The hosts, Francesco and Stefania could not be more delightful. Helpful, friendly and interesting. There when you needed them but never intrusive. Please partake of their vegetarian supper if you have the chance. If you like peace and quiet, a great view and a comfortable bed to lay your head then you should put this place on your itinerary if you are ever in the area.”

“We stayed at Tommaso’s place only for the night, but I wish we would have had more time. The flat itself was 4 floors, each beautiful and with many amenities. The view from the terrace was spectacular. Tommaso was very hospitable despite the language barrier. He left us cookies and homemade pasta sauce - so kind! The town itself had a few restaurants and seemed lively for being small. Tommaso also owns a tour company, and while we didn’t get a chance to take advantage of it, we would have loved to go hiking, climbing, or riding in the 4x4 with him. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area!”

“Simply the best Airbnb experience I have ever had, and I've used the platform a lot. If you are looking for a peaceful and quiet stay surrounded by mountains and nature, do not hesitate to book Giusy's place. It wasn't only the house that made the stay so great (even though it had everything we needed and more, including a good shower, an equipped kitchen and a comfy bed), it was the environment and the host that really made it special. Giusy created this Airbnb to breathe some new life into the little town she was born and raised in, and you can really tell she poured a lot of love and attention into this. She is incredibly nice and went out of her way to advice us about things to see and do in and around town (including a hike to the local hot springs) and to make us feel at home. The town and its people are great too, and the local restaurant offered us an amazing gastronomical experience that was, to be honest, quite unexpected in such a little village. There is not much 'to do' in the town itself, so don't expect lots of nearby attractions etc (although you can visit the medieval castle). The beauty of this place is in its remoteness and in the ability to just enjoy the quiet or go on hikes. A must if you are looking for a unique escape!”
