Contrada Santa Anastasia - Castelbuono

Price starting from 153.03
Try to imagine a corner of paradise, where colors, flavors and smells blend to create an atmosphere real but at once out of time. Immersed in a green hilly landscape between Castelbuono and Pollina, the elegant Relais Santa Anastasia is only a few kilometers from Cefalù. No image can do justice to this enchanted place, where the hot red of the sunset is reflected in the ancient stones of the benedictine abbey of the 12th century and penetrates the soul. Here you can savor warmth of refined and welcoming hospitality. The old mansion, restored and returned to its former splendor, is now a 29 rooms Relais. Enticing smells make up for the magic and intriguing charm of the abbey, which invite you to stay in the elegant rooms that provide you with the kind of relax we often don’t find anymore and which we lose in the rush of everyday life. In the evening, the clear sky, unpolluted by the city lights, will embrace you and only the pleasure of the table will wrest you from this biblical contemplation.

Living the environments you will be fascinated by the care for details and tasteful furnishings; dining at the La Corte dell' Abate restaurant you will discover flavors full of secrets of best Sicilian tradition and biological production. The Passioni e Tentazioni restaurant is overlooking the pool and garden and serves breakfast and lunch. At the Il Nido del Falco wine bar you can spend an enjoyable evening; excellent wines are produced in the adjacent winery.

A swimming pool with hydro massage corner and a large equipped terrace with a splendid view over the sea that reaches to the Aeolian islands, a bar, a reading room and relaxation area and conference room are available for your leisure or business travel. Private parking, WiFi, and internet point are available for free. Reception is open 24h/7days with multilingual staff. Possibility to have a guided winery tour, by appointment. The Castello dei Ventimiglia and the Museo Minà Palumbo are both within easy reach.

The only regret we had was to have booked for such a short time. Our next booking will be longer. We recommend to take pleasure with the table and wines of the property. The staff is so lovely... The surroundings are gorgeous. For sure we'll be back next year on our way to the Islands

A beautiful spot.Spacious room with view over superb infinity pool which was great to swim and relax in - and empty! The hotel staff are very welcoming. We were very disappointed by the quality of the food in the restaurant - not up to scratch for the type of location. We were disappointed as the reviews we read said the opposite - chef's night off? The atmosphere in the restaurant was also a little lacking due the few guests dining in. Otherwise a lovely retreat and we would definitely recommend it.

We had read previous reviews regarding the poor welcome guests had received here, and I am afraid that our experience very much confirmed this. Very much a Fawlty Towers experience, with difficult communication between our poor Italian, and the staff's minimal English, and a feeling that the place was being run for the staff, and not for the guests. This was not just a language problem, as on our night's arrival, there was only one other couple staying, a German couple, whose Italian was much better than ours, but who shared the overall impression of a complete unwillingness to engage with the guests. The restaurant was like a mausoleum, with food plonked in front of us, although the meal was fine, the wine fabulous. The monastery is beautiful, a wonderful haven, beautiful swimming pool, great views; we really enjoyed all of this, and would not necessarily put other guests off. Just such a shame that the monastic spirit of unreserved hospitality appeared to have been forgotten.
