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.

Many thanks for our great week at your villa and in your Sicily. One of our best trips.

Maria & Riccardo
How can I possibly thank you enough for your kindness and care during our stay in your wonderful villa. It was such a
nice time here and I enjoyed it tremendously . I am sorry I was such a pest and required special attention, but at least
that way we got to spend more time together.
The garden is a wonderful place to relax and recover. I have taken some pictures of the garden, but I will not need
pictures to remember your home and my time here.
Thank you again

Maria & Riccardo -
We enjoyed your Casa so very much. Because of our unexpected limitations on travel I was able to truly enjoy the
lovely gardens and just relax there. your casa is so very welcoming & comfortable.
it soon began to feel like 'home' to me.
Maria, your help when I needed to get Tom to the hospital was so generous. You helped me in so very many ways. I
will never forget. Grazie Mille. Thank you both for sharing your home, clothing and hospitality. Your Casa is a lovely
place to just BE AT HOME
Jerry VT & Tom D

The villa is a heaven and Sicily is a treasure trove.
•History in heritage sites and experiences like ricotta making the old way!

We came & fell in love with Sicily's wonderful mountain scenery, exquisite spring flowers & enjoyed friendly helpful
people.
One highlight was a scenic trip round the mountain which Caccamo at its centre to the east of Casteldaccia. Strong
climbing shoes required!
Nearby is Porticello a quaint fishing village where you can buy fresh fish & walk along the promenade. Not far away at
St Flavia is a spectacular walk (concrete path) ending at the disused Lighthouse.
Excellent, cheap train service to Palermo. Strongly recommended instead of driving.
Solunto also a highlight.
A comfortable , elegant house with a delightful garden and as artists we enjoyed & appreciated the many art books.
We advise checking the availability & proximity of restaurants & found local food shops very well stocked.
Enjoy Sicily - and take your time!!

Beautiful house & relaxing garden. Really friendly & helpful locals. Particularly enjoyed the Pasticceria opposite & the
Gelateria on the main square.
Cefalu beautiful & the climb up La Rocca a real must do, but take plenty of water.
Roman remains at Solunto amazing - we had them to ourselves, also Segesta was fantastic.
Wonderful food & restaurants.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1965

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 PA, Italy:
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.
