Stayed one night as part of a group. Renovated villa/farm. Fabulous grounds and gardens. Charming and tasteful. Beautiful room with view overlooking citrus groves and sea. Welcoming staff, good food and wine. Bar drinks slightly expensive. Would definitely return.

The recently renovated and updated villa is situated close to Noto amongst an orange grove as well as almond and olive trees. There is a huge swimming pool as well as dining patio, which is a great spot for breakfast. The room we had was very spacious and well appointed. The staff were exceptional; most spoke English very well and...

This villa was chosen by our tour guide who has impeccable taste in hotels in Italy. So it is no wonder that we really enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed for three nights as part of an organised tour. The hotel has been beautifully restored and is set in extensive gardens located just outside Noto. We would have rated our stay higher but for the inconsistency of the restaurant. On the night we ate as a tour group the food and service was fine. However on the two...

Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear you had a negative experience with our restaurant because it's usually considered one of the best aspects of our Relais. The products we use are almost all homegrown or come form local farmers and all the traditional dishes we serve are cooked in the same way for single guests and...

All together, our best stay in Sicily. Located outside of Noto, you can definitely enjoy the quite of this area, Numerous beaches are around here, and Noto is close by for dinner. We stay in a room with a mezzanine and had a pretty view of field and the water far away. Spotty wifi is the only cons.

I've been in this place with my family for one week during the month of July 2016: I've been in Sicily a lot of times but I've never been so lucky finding such a charming, pleasant and comfortable place. The beaches around Noto are the most beautiful in Sicily and they are really easy to reach from Villafavorita so if...

I'm puzzled by the positive reviews for this place. We found it thoroughly depressing and meanly run. The woman who seems to own and run it walks around in a daze like a Countess thoroughly unfazed when the restaurant is in chaos. The bathroom amenities are something from a cheap 2 star American motel, the restaurant is severely understaffed (...

Our running heroes thank you for the kind words. The "Countess" spends most of the days with the heroes between the restaurant and the kitchen since most of the dishes served come from her own recipes. The restaurant is what we get most positive feedbacks about from both locals and foreigners. We guess you will remain puzzled since the reviews...

The first thing you notice when you arrive in Villa Favorita is the familiar atmosphere. always harder to find. the savoir faire of the owner who runs the place and the politeness of all the staff really make the difference. Breakfast is just amazing with a mixed choice of italian and continental dishes. for dinner the choice is not that...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa Favorita Relais, placed in the Val di Noto in the heart of Baroque Sicily and was born with the transformation of the 18th century villa property of the Di Lorenzo barons of Granieri marquis of Castelluccio family. At this day the Relais is still run by direct descendants of the family. The Relais is 2,5km from Noto, capital of Baroque Sicily and UNESCO site since 2002. The sea is only a five minute drive and offers both beach clubs and more wild sites where you can taste the real and authentic beauty, colors and smells of the Mediterranean sea. The ancient adobe is the ideal setting for a vacation lost in the flavors of Sicily. ... more   less
