Relais Santa Anastasia5.0 out of 5.0

A beautiful property, with a lovely pool (although it was too cold to use it during our stay!). This is in a really nice place, in its own grounds and vineyard. Our room was nice. looking over the swimming pool. Santa Anastasia is rather isolated however, and there isn't an option to go outside in the evenings. The restaurant was pretty good though - overall I'd recommend a stay here.
I really liked staying here! The room was big, the view of the countryside was gorgeous. One day I ordered pizza and wine, not expecting much, but it was amazing. Walked aronud the vineyards and the whole expericence was terrific.
Elegant rooms with character. Set in a wonderful location up in the mountains with walks amongst the vines to the hills. Soak up the atmosphere, especially when the locals have a wedding in the chapel beside the square. Located to make it an easy drive to the coast with Cefalu near by as well as Roman ruins.
Difficult to know how lovely this place is as we visited for just one night at the very end of the season. And we missed the right road in, so came up a pretty rough track, discovering the smoother road the next morning on the way out. The slightly dreary weather didn’t help but the welcome is warm, and the rooms are large and comfortable. Except, except, the soundproofing between our room and the next seemed non-existent as we could hear everything that went on the bathroom. Not ideal. We did mention this and ask if we could move, which apparently we could if we paid more, or ‘they’ll go to sleep later’ was the other response. They provided a lovely antipasti at 3pm which was kind; dinner in the evening was OK, but reminded us of 1970s English cooking - lots of sauces. Time for a new chef we thought. The photos in the brochure are amazing in the summer, and the guest reviews reflect this, so maybe we didn’t see it at its best.
Tranquility reigns. Quiet. Serene. Most comfortable room and amenities. Terrific meals. Attentive staff. Wonderful views and mild hiking were the main attraction. We were there towards the end of the season so some outdoor facilities - like the pool - were closed. But it didn't matter. We still sat outside and recovered from a three-week adventure in the countryside.
We stayed at 5 hotels we really liked in Sicily but this one was the most charming. If you want a peaceful, bucolic, beautiful get-away, this is the place. The road getting there was winding and bumpy, but worth every jolt and turn.
If you like to experience a "faraway heaven or hideway of idyllic beauty and tranquility", you will find it at Relais Santa Anastasia. Our only regret in staying at this heavenly hotel, it was only for one night!! We cannot wait to return and fully experience the total beauty of this place!!. During our short stay, our total experience was something out of this world!! Staff, accommodations, restaurant, wines, grounds exceeded all expectations of a perfect stay!!. Thank you to the Staff and Relais for giving us this once in a life-time experience to stay in this Shangri-la!
During a roadtrip of Sicily we decided lastminute to go to Castelbueno and the night before I contacted Santa Anastasia about the possibilities for a winetasting/tour. The morning afterwards I received the confirmation that this was possible and what the options were. We agreed on a 12:00 start and they arranged tour through the vinery with explanation of their wine making process. Afterwards we had the wine tasting, combined with a lunch which was perfect. We bought a few bottles to take home and relive our holiday the weeks afterwards. A lovely place, would recommend to anybody!
Beautiful medieval monastery. Good sized room, a little dark as rooms often are. Wonderful pool with views towards the sea. Very good restaurant. We eT here twice but went into Cefalu for the other evenings as we felt we didn't want the hotel menu again interesting as it was. Friendly staff would definitely recommend.
Our nine day stay in Sicily was spent in three places, and the Abbazio Santa Anatasia was the last and the best. The location is remote but that adds to the tranquility and quality of this lovely hotel in one of the best vineyards in Sicily. The staff were attentive, polite and friendly and always willing to please. All facilities were of an excellent standard, the pool and terrace were wonderfully pleasant even in October. WE ate in the restaurant each evening and the food was delicious, the wine produced on site outstanding. Highly recommended.
