The
Experience

Authentic, rugged, surprising: Favignana, one of three tiny outcrops off the west coast of Sicily, is a secret haunt for in-the-know Italians. Owner and former fashion photographer Davide adores his adopted isle, its dramatic rock formations, its charming town, its florescent palette of waters that changes colour from cove to cove. Arrive to a trio of single-storey sandstone houses, reconstructed from a former barn and built exactly to Davide’s specifications, brick by square brick. Half built into the rocks, the houses are curiously shaped, unevenly floored, and simply, stylishly furnished. The central house, Uliveto, is the largest, with a pergola, a grill and an extra shower outside, but both have their own outdoor lounging space, immersed in a fennel-perfumed paradise of olive trees, agave, pomegranates and palms. There’s a beautiful rocky beach just a few steps away, and Cala Rossa (packed with Italians in July and August) is just a scooter ride away. Davide can book diving trips, arrange cookery lessons, organise yoga, deliver bikes, suggest skippered tours. He is a brilliant, enthusiastic, indefatigable host.

Reviews

Highly recommend Davide's accomadation on Favignana. He's a great guy and did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable. Travelling at this time of the year the Island was beautifully peaceful, the food fantastic and we had great fun exploring on hired bikes. One of our best breaks of all time.

Davide looked after us so well throughout our stay that we didn't want for anything. He had anticipated our every need including providing a larder full of food, coffee, wine and milk to ensure we didn't starve on the night we arrived. He even picked us up from the ferry. The house and gardens are spacious and beautifully designed and built by Davide himself. And although there are other people staying in the other casas there is no sense of being too close at any time. Practical things - great wifi, good water pressure and hot water for showers. Bed comfortable. Kitchen, well set up.

Mark

Me and my family we came in Favignana to relax and enjoy Mediterranean sea. Davide's house Vigneto is comfortable and a lot of character. I really loved the unique architecture that he made by himself. The biggest plus is that it is close to the beach and very near the town. My kids really enjoyed playing in the magnificent garden. I loved the aperitivo on the terrace with the view to the sea side of Sicily. We will definitely come back to this paradise. I truly recommend it.
