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 CENTERS:
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 centers 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 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 Palermo, 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.

Dear Maria, Riccardo & dear Alessandra,
We really enjoyed our holidays at your apartment in Casteldaccia! Sicily is so nice - even in November we had some sunny days and went to the sandy beaches of Cefalù and still took a bath in the sea. Love the clear water! We climbed on the Etna and also had a wonderful view from the top of the amphitheatre in Segesta. Besides we relaxed in the studio on the rainy days. I love to use the shower outside! We cooked a lot, too. The people of Casteldaccia were very friendly, even if they couldn't speak English - with the help of hands and feet (and a smile!) we always got along.
It's a shame that we didn't get to know you two ( because you are in Canada right now)!
Anyway, many, many thanks to Alessandra who did a great job!
Best wishes,
Daniel H, Maria K, Eckhard S, Rita K from Germany

Wonderful week spent in the house for a family reunion. We had 4 children who had a great time playing in the garden.
Great base for exploring the local area.
Highlights:
1 - Climbing 'La Rocca' at Cefalù - beautiful sea views, amazing sunset.
2 - Having a beach day(also at Cefalù) in November!!!
3 - Ruins at Segesta - again gorgeous views
4 - Gelati on a daily basis - personal local favourite was 'La Rotonda'
Took the advice of previous guest and had roast chicken from the deli - delicious

Thank you for a great ten-day stay, which we've enjoyed enormously. great studio apartment, complemented by wonderful weather, excellent food & wine, & some lovely places to visit.
We've not been adventurous, but have hopped on and off more trains & buses than we normally do in England. And have had a memorable holiday. We've really warmed up to Casteldaccia, & won't forget in a hurry the splendid celebrations for San Giuseppe. the fireworks were great; but the storm the next night was even louder & brighter!
Thank you, & warmest best wishes,

                  VILLA DELLE PALME 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 a unique setting. Not isolated in the country, this villa is placed in the center of the town, melted among the town houses. You enter a portal and are placed in a magic intimate garden, while at the same time retain a taste of the local life, easy shopping and leisure walks.

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

                   

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: The garden has been in my family since the year 1725, when the town of Casteldaccia was founded by my ancestors. 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 the Owner Chose Casteldaccia:
                  The house, built in 1965, was my first project after I graduated in Architecture! Every year I return with my family to this house and to Casteldaccia to restore my energy and get in touch with my roots. 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.

                  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.
