The Location

In the Polizzi Generosa region of central Sicily, Susafa is ideal if you’re looking to wake up to birdsong instead of traffic noise. Rolling hills with winding roads and fabulous views are everywhere here, as well as some of the best vineyards anywhere. Madonie Park is half an hour’s drive and a great day trip option for hikers, while the glittering coast is only an hour.

Both Palermo Airport and Catania Airport are a 1 hour, 40 minute’s drive.
