The first hotel in Italy to be added to Adventus Travel, and one of the only accommodations in Sicily with the EU Ecolabel, the Azienda Agricola Bergi will help you get back to basics in comfort and style. Nestled in the foot of a mountain, close to the main house where the owners still live and work, these farmhouses have a stunning, stone exterior with soft, colourful interiors. You’ll feel instantly comforted with their luxurious beds and coverings, and each room is themed after a different fruit or natural product; from oranges to mushrooms, strawberries to chestnuts, nature pours through every pore of the farmhouses.
The houses offer a view of the town of Castelbuono, and guided tours of the town are available from the houses, alongside a whole range of fun activities that will bring you closer to this fabulous area of Sicily. With cooking lessons and bread making, alongside honey tastings and visits to traditional cheesemakers, you have so many ways of tasting this lush region. There are also views of the Madonie Park, which is one of the most botanically and biologically diverse regions in the Mediterranean. Tours with a focus on plant species are available for the green-fingered guests, as well the opportunity to pick your own fruit and vegetables on the farm; animal lovers can seek out the local mammals and try to find some of the 90 species of butterflies in the area.
The farm’s restaurant will delight those looking to eat local, as they use much of their own organic produce in the dishes – they’ll even cook up the vegetables that you pick into delicious local dishes, served with lashings of their own extra virgin olive oil.
The colourful rooms are warm and welcoming, each with their own personal touch. There is a daily maid service and comfort has been key when designing the rooms. Every room has a bathroom, hairdryer, bed linen, air conditioning and heating.
