Falconara Castle, surrounded by a luxuriant palm garden, is situated on a rocky promontory overlooking the sea, near Bufera in the province of Caltanissetta.

The original structure has a square tower in which the nobility of the period bred falcons and from which the castle’s name derives. The date of its construction is not known for certain, but from historical references it is understood that Ugone of Sanapau, with a law of 18th October 1392, received it as a gift from King Martino of Aragona who rewarded him for supporting him against opposing factions.

Subject to various successions, today the castle is the property of the Chairamonte Bordonaro family who have opened it to the public, making it available for exclusive hire, as an apartment with service staff included or for receptions and meetings. Adjacent to the sea and situated near the Valley of the Temples, the manor house is ideal for cultural and countryside itineraries all over Southern Sicily.

His Opinion: It was truly an enchanting and special stay. One that would be hard to replicate. Our hosts were most attentive and helpful. We were travelling with another couple and we were the only guests that evening. We felt like the castle was our home for the night. We would highly recommend the adventure, which was one of the highlights of our trip.

His Opinion: Le château n'était pas éclairé de l'extérieur,dommage! très désagréable de rentrer du restaurant du Falconara Resort à côté sans lumière! Pas de lumière sur la terrasse,le soir, obligés de rester dans la chambre qui est très petite et vieillote.
Petit déjeuner décevant, uniquement des produits industriels à part les fruits.
Je ne recommanderais pas cette adresse.

His Opinion: My mother and I stayed one day and night at the Castello and added it to our list of adventures! Ensure you take the phone number of the guardian with you because you have to call when you arrive to be let through the gates. This is an actual castle and while it has been renovated throughout, it is still rustic. The guardians live just outside of the castle inside the grounds. Its huge and we were the only guests which was a little anxiety provoking when the lights were extinguished for the evening! Access to the beach was through a stairway through rock under the castle and a locked courtyard. The waves were rough, smashing small pebbles at your legs, but it was very beautiful. Breakfast was in one of the dining rooms on beautiful china and we felt like royalty. Although the guardian did not speak Italian nor did his wife, they were polite and helpful and we used alot of sign language. The castle is out in the country and we did not see alot of things to do or see nearby. We used it as a place to stay on the way through Sicily so if you want to see the area, research to see if there is anything of interest. I'd recommend it as an adventure!
