The landscape around I Fratelli is really unbelievably beautiful, so impressive that it never fails to take our breath away. An agritourist hotel in truly spectacular spot, and the restaurant has great food. 

Just 9km off the Catania/Palermo motorway, and from the small town of Resuttano, yet seeming far from anywhere, the fascinating I Fratelli nestles into a valley, in the very centre of Sicily. Surrounded by stunning countryside, this country estate and working farm provides comfortable and interesting agritourist accommodation.

Approached via a high ridge, from which you then drop, quite dramatically, this large country estate has its own little church and lovely stone farmhouse. Run by two charming brothers, I Fratelli is absolutely perfect for those who love rural settings and being surrounded by the best that nature has to offer. Inside, the décor is typically Sicilian and furnishings are attractively rustic and tasteful. All bedrooms, whether in the hotel or apartments, have air-conditioning/central heating.

The jewel in I Fratelli’s crown, is the fantastic agritourist restaurant. Well-known throughout Sicily, and with a lovely large covered terrace for al fresco dining, it is a popular choice for lunch and dinner, especially at weekends. Sundays, in particular, are often a real joy, buzzing with Sicilians, dressed in all their finery. The whole extended family comes out for lunch, from week-old babies to Grandpas, and the atmosphere is unbeatable – such fun to witness and even greater fun to be included! The chef, Mimmo, is a great character and he has cooked at I Fratelli forever. He produces sublime food. The farm is certified as organic and he uses the best of ingredients to create wholesome, delicious and typically Sicilian dishes. Of course, he is especially challenged on Sundays, when the restaurant is usually full and noisy, in typical Italian fashion. We love it.

Perched above the farmhouse, on a terrace with amazing views, is I Fratelli’s swimming pool. There is a well-equipped playground for children, a pool table, and horse riding/trekking.

About 80km from Palermo, 120km from Catania and just kilometres from the motorway that straddles Sicily, giving easy access to every corner of the island, I Fratelli is an excellent base for exploring.
