Palermo villa description

We are very excited about the changes we have made to our Suite in Villa, known by our past guests as 'Studio Suite'. We have added two bedrooms, one powder room and one shower room. All brand new and sparkling!
The Villa is located in the heart of Casteldaccia, a quaint village on a Sicilian hill, two km from the sea and 20 min. easy drive to Palermo.
This beautiful Suite is located above the owner's holiday residence. It has vaulted ceilings, air conditioned, wall safe, new washrooms, kitchen with dishwasher, access to clothes-washer, two very large, furnished, covered decks offering view of the mountains and the nearby village. They are covered with traditional vaulted structures, made-up with logs and clay tiles and are totally furnished.
Coal barbecue and exterior burners allow to barbecue, griddle or deep fry on the deck.
The Suite is available, for weekly rental, year round.
We have provided you with a wall safe, should you wish to have extra protection for your jewels and valuables.
The Suite in Villa is perfectly sized for your romantic holiday. For guests with children or for a small group, we can accommodate up to five guests in two bedrooms. We can also accommodate up to seven guests by adding a third bedroom.

For very large groups we can add the interconnected Main House, as advertised on VRBO, advert #23590 and can accommodate up to 17 guests.

This Villa is located in the heart of Casteldaccia, a quaint village on a Sicilian hill, two km from the sea and 20 min. easy drive to Palermo.

The location offers all the best. Placed in the centre of the town, the Villa overlooks an intimate garden, while at the same time it offers you a taste of local life and easy walks for your shopping. Excellent is the local production of wine. Don’t forget to taste the world renown 'Corvo, Duca di Salaparuta', the pasta Tomasello, exported in USA and Canada and the extra virgin cold press olive oil 'Giada'.

Freeway connection, located 200 meters away, will allow you to quickly connect, explore and discover remote areas of the island.

About Sicily:
Sicily is the largest and most important island in the Mediterranean, it extends for 25,460sq km. Planes of fertile red soil, excellent for the cultivation of vine grapes, citrus orchards and olive groves, alternate with hills, green in spring for the cultivation of wheat and, among the majestic mountains, Mount Etna, the most popular of active volcanoes. The climate is typically Mediterranean along the coasts, with mild, short winters and moderate rainfall.

Near-by centres:
Palermo, 1.500.000 inhabitants, capital of Sicily – an island in the sea of sunlight – is a splendid city adorned in the course of 2500 years by Greeks, Arab Emirs, Norman Kings and Spanish Viceroys; it offers an incomparable example of beauty, history, culture and traditions to excite the mind and the eye. It has a wide selection of museums and entertainment. Casteldaccia is well connected to Palermo by freeway and by public transportation.

Close-by centres are: Santa Flavia and Solunto, with its Graeco-Roman archaeological site, 3 km west; Bagheria, an active and very alive town, ideal for elegant shopping, with its seventeenth century scenographic mansions once summer retreat of the Palermitan aristocracy, 5 km west; Porticello, a delightful fisherman village, 3 km west; Aspra, another unspoiled fisherman village, 5 km west; and Altavilla, with its Sanctuary to the Holy Mary, 2 km east. All are offering plenty of tourist attractions.

Excursions:
Casteldaccia is east of Palemo, so you will be closer and will not meet the city traffic when driving for a day trip to Cefalu`, Taormina, Mount Etna, Siracusa, Agrigento, Selinunte.

We recommend excursions to: Palermo e Monreale (20 km), Cefalu` (50 km), Segesta, Agrigento, Madonie Natural Park (80 km), Taormina (200 km), Mount Etna (200 km), Siracusa (250 km), Eolie Islands.

              Manager info

              About: The garden has been in my family since the year 1725, date of the foundation of the town of Casteldaccia. I grew up and played every summer with my brother and my cousins in this garden, at that time much larger. Many years later, also my children played in it every summer. Many of my fondest memories are connected to this garden.

              Why Palermo:
              The house, built in 1965, was my first project, after I graduated in Architecture! For 10 years, during summer, I ran in the garden a ‘Scuolina’, a free Art School for the children of Casteldaccia and nearby towns, teaching drawing, painting and ceramics. Every year I return with my family to this house and to Casteldaccia to restore my energy and get in touch with my roots.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              My home is located off the main road of Casteldaccia, at walking distance from all the stores. At the same time allows me to retreat at home in the paradise of my subtropical garden. Casteldaccia is close to Bagheria, a larger town, where I can go shopping, and still enjoy the fresh air of the countryside. Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is only 20 minutes away from my reach, with its history, culture and traditions, restaurants, museums, churches, squares.
