Relais Santa Anastasia History
The verdant hills of Castelbuono, a medieval town in the province of Palermo, host the exclusive Relais Santa Anastasia, just minutes from the renowned tourist center of Cefalù.
Converted from the careful renovation of a medieval abbey of Benedictine monks of the twelfth century, Santa Anastasia is now a luxury farm where you can still breathe the atmosphere of the past. Carefully restored, paying attention to every detail and to the original features of the structure, the Relais welcomes its guests in rooms rich in precious furniture and elegant fabrics, spaces of great charm framed by the enchanting panorama of the Madonie Park.
Each room takes its name from a particular type of vine, to underline the deep connection with the territory and with the ancient enological culture of the region. Furnished in a sober and elegant, they have air conditioning, Sat-Tv and Sky Pay for View, Wi-Fi, safe and minibar, modern technologies that fit harmoniously into the room. The rooms of the Relais Santa Anastasia are 29, divided between 2 singles, 19 Classic, 4 Deluxe, 2 Junior Suites and 2 Grand Suites.
There are two restaurants in the complex: the "La Corte dell'Abate" restaurant is usually used for dinners or banquets during special occasions. In its elegant rooms we propose dishes of local and regional gastronomy, a cuisine of excellence that uses the raw materials of the estate, organically grown. The "Passioni e Tentazioni" Restaurant presents a more informal atmosphere: positioned next to the swimming pool, it offers the possibility to enjoy pleasant quick meals and snacks during the day.
The enamellers will not be disappointed by the walks along the rows of vineyards nor by the visit to the Abbazia Santa Anastasia Winery which is right next to the Relais: the unique opportunity to visit an enoagricola company with a lot of history to tell, the most lively expression of the passion that binds traditions to this land.
Many offers of leisure and relaxation: the swimming pool with Jacuzzi offers a breathtaking view; the reading room is ideal for those who want to enjoy a break with a good book or good music; the "Sala Relax Adelasia" is conceived instead to relax with group games such as chess, checkers or cards; the wellness area allows you to regenerate mind and body with massages and treatments, or practice healthy movement with the Kinesis gym. All around the estate, the 450 hectares of the park are suitable for walking or riding, to discover the magical glimpses of nature.
