Perched on a hillside in remote Favignana, a simple retreat with sensational Tyrrhenian Sea views and a lovely Mediterranean garden

Read guest comments

The azure Tyrrhenian Sea sparkles below this rustic retreat for four, while a mountain topped with an ancient castle looms behind. All you need for La Dolce Vita is here: fabulous views, a little pool in the sunshine, local wine to sip on the rooftop terrace… Perched on a hillside on the island of Favignana, a short boat trip from Sicily, this little sandstone house is a tranquil escape in the quieter months. Gaze across the archipelago towards distant Levanzo and listen to the birds sing. Sleep under vaulted ceilings in two simple bedrooms with exposed stone walls and antique furniture; there's a walk-in shower on the same floor. Head up the spiral staircase to a kitchen and light-filled living/dining space overlooking the ocean; you can eat inside at a travertine table or al fresco among fig and olive trees in the Mediterranean garden. Charming owner Davide was so enchanted by Favignana when he first visited, that he left his career as a fashion photographer to set down roots here. He's now on-hand to offer brilliant suggestions for your holiday, whether you want to surf, dive or sail, island-hop or try a cookery class at home.

"J'ai passé des vacances merveilleurses à "Glen House" - Cet endroit est magique, la vue sur la mer est incroyable, la maison est très confortable et la décoration de très bon goût. Merci à Davide pour son accueil. Je rêve déjà d'y retourner. "

"Me and my man finally have decided to travel to Sicily! It was one of our plans for very long time. We stayed at one of Davides houses, Glens house! The experience was unbelievable! We arrived very early, but Davide was already waiting for us with warm coffee and some tradicional italian breakfast! First thing that i adored was the calm nature peace and an amazing design of all the place! The place really looked magical and comfortable at the same time! We both said we could stayed there forever! Id like to say big THANK YOU to Davide and his hospitality, i would recommend it for sure!"
