About the Property

Spacious & Comfortable With Dramatic Panoramic Views.

Casa Pergola is a once olive mill, lovingly restored farmhouse set in the beautiful Sicilian countryside. The house is a short drive to the beaches and coastal villages of the north coast. Vibrant Palermo is 30 minutes away, and the Madonie Mountain hill cities are a short drive to the east. In winter there is skiing in the mountains and beautiful nights by the fire place which is massive and romantic. Some amenities include Passive solar heated pool, in floor radiant heat and hand made shower mosaics in the bathrooms. The bedrooms are beautiful and comfortable.

Casa Pergola is a swimmers delight. A private 3.5 X 11 meter pool here at the house and beautiful beaches with ancient towers and seaside villages are a short distance away. We have a large barbecue area and outdoor dining is either under the olive trees, shade of the wisteria or on our dramatic roof terrace. A hammock under the olive trees is the perfect place to catch up on your summer reading/napping! Come and stay I guarantee you will be happy you did!

Our house 'Casa Pergola' is located in a tranquil rural area yet close to the autostrada, the beaches, Palermo historic center (30 minutes), mountains, and gorgeous seaside villages like Cefalù. (30 min).

The house sits on 4 acres of land and is very private with many places to relax, beautiful pool house, roof terrace, wisteria covered pergola terrace, spacious pool area, even a hammock! The rooms are also very comfortable and airy. The kitchen with new convection 5 burner stove/oven, dishwasher, dining and living room (with large fireplace) is relaxing and beautiful with room for everyone. You will not be disappointed!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We, David and Paul, both come from artistic backgrounds. Paul was a potter in mid-coast Maine and David a decorative painter, created murals and hand painted furniture working throughout the United States and Tuscany. We moved to Sicily in search of something unspoiled and authentic. What we found was an amazing island steeped in history, a food culture that honors a tradition of eating fresh and in season foods, and a life style that puts 'LIVING WELL' in front of everything else (with the exception of 'La Famiglia' of course), No one loves 'family' more than the Sicilians. A Sicilian friend once warned me 'You better be careful, if you are liked the Sicilians will drag you into their family!'

Why the Owner Chose Trabia, Palermo, Italy:
This is a house for artists, romantics, gardeners and anyone who searches for natural beauty, yet wants to be close to the conveniences of urban life.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The house is wonderfully private. Even when the house is full there are always little private spaces to go to when you need to recharge, whether it be the hammock, shaded garden courtyard or dramatic roof terrace. When our guests do have to return home they do so with some reluctance, for many of them Casa Pergola was a slice of heaven that is hard to leave behind.
