I have no idea how this place has earned rave reviews.The room is ok. The ac was not working nor the phone. The food is mediocre and the wine barely drinkable. The service was lacking...one server trying his best to accommodate ten tables. Breakfast was the worst...cold cappucino and decided to have tea and the milk curdled immediately...overworked server again..the... More

Peaciful, majestic and very traditional place in the middle of rural area of Marsala. Beatiful organic vineyard right next to the place. Owners are very passionate about their wine and history of this place and wine making. Delicious food at restaurat accompanied with very rich tasting wine from their own vineyard. Unforgettable experience for all the wine lovers.

Beautiful sunsets,friendly staff ,spacious and clean rooms. Peaceful surroundings with wonderful views of Egadi islands and vineyards. Dinner was excellent especially the millefoglie di melanzane and seppioline gratinati. Wine was divine and tomorrow we're visiting the wine cellars. Superb evening . Well done 👍

A group of us trusted our driver to travel into the back streets of Masala to find this delightfully restored winery. We tasted some really high quality Bio Dynamic reds and whites and the enjoyed a very pleasant long lunch.

This is nice. This is calm. This is romantic. The room is large. The bed is more than large. The swimming pool is so nice! The restaurant is not that expensive but very good. It does deserves 4 points. A small negative point: the bathroom was not smelling good. Anyway: baglii donna franca is over the top!

We booked a room for 2 nights in this residence, but our room was very dirty. A very small window whereby you do not notice the perfect weather outside. The room was cold and very far from cosy.

The perfect place for a chill out holiday with the view over the vineyards to the sea and the only sound being the bells on the goats as they eat their way through the weeds amongst the vines.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Wine Resort was built after the restoration and conversion of a large "baglio" located in the centre of an agricultural establishment that, at one time, belonged to the Florio family. The historic Sicilian dynasty of the Florio family introduced Marsala wine to the entire world, invented the tuna fish industry in Favignana and controlled the largest commercial naval fleet at that time in Italy. The name Donna Franca is a homage to Franca Florio, who was an important and well-known figure of the Florio family. ... more   less
