I loved the lounge area where we enjoyed an wonderful bottle of their red wine. (We like it so much we bought a few bottles to take with us). Breakfast was good and featured...

This place has a rather charming in the middle of nowhere character - and its spruce appearance is quite a contrast to the nearest settlements, or indeed the picturesque ruins across the way (stroll near them and you'll discover fly-tipping). Not the finest dining experience we've had in Sicily - but breakfasts good. Plumbing occasionally aromatic. However the charming welcome...

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...

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.

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!

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
