Property description

Villa Paladino Solunto is a small and amazing complex of 5 lovely bright, cozy and full-equipped suites (3 three-room suites for 4 - 5 people and 2 two-room suites for 2 - 4 people), immersed in a dreaming and amazing atmosphere, between history and mythe,just at the gates of Palermo. It has exceptional charm and prestige by the unique characteristics between the gulfs of Palermo and Cefalù. It smartly stands on a lush hill, close to the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano and the Archeological Park of Solunto,the famous Phoenician and Greek - Roman city. Guided tours on foot of Monte Catalfano can be arranged. Along the coast, you can visit the Archaeological underwater Park of the Rock of the Ant. Boat trips with skipper in the clear waters around the Scoglio della Formica (the Rock of the Ant), home of dolphins, up to the Aeolian Islands and fishing can be arranged in summer. The closest sand beach is only met 800 far from the Villa. You can look at the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino too ('The most beautiful promontory of the world', said Goethe, the well known German poet who came in Sicily in 19th century) from the windows of your bedrooms.The view of the sea embraces from Palermo to Cefalù until the high chain of Nebrodi and that over mountains reaches from Mount Pellegrino (Palermo) to the inner mountains of Sicily, the magnificent tops of Madonie (alt. m 2000), looking at the hills, the rocky promontories and the green valleys of Bagheria and Santa Flavia too. On these panoramic luxuriant hills of Bagheria you can admire a lot of beautiful eighteenth - century villas built by the best Sicilian nobility. Villa Paladino solunto is a fascinating and enchanting site,a very peaceful place where adults and children can enjoy and spend unforgettable holidays thanks to the gorgeous setting with an incredible pool similar to a natural lake in the middle of a large Mediterranean garden. Ii is also a good starting point with easy access to motorway and manageable driving time to majority of attractions. 200 meters away you may visit the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing villages of Porticello and S.Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes. Approximately 1 Km. after S.Elia, driving along the quite panoramic coastal road, that flows around the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you’ll get the promontory of Mongerbino and the seafaring village of Aspra and with its breath-taking views on the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino. It is a strategic point to easily go sightseeing Palermo (Km.10, 30 minutes by car and 20 by train), the well known beach resort of Mondello and the town of Monreale, with the most beautiful and important Cathedral in the world, the famous medieval town of Cefalù, with its fantastic beach and the Arab-Norman Cathedral, the enchanting Castle of Caccamo, the well-known remains of Agrigento, the Museum of Mozia, the nice and little town of Erice, the Natural Reserve of Zingaro, the National Natural Madonie Park and many other places of great tourist interest.It 's possible to go in less than an hour from the sea to the mountain, taking part in sightseeing, excursions in the great Madonie National Park (alt m. 2000) a paradise of rare plants and protected animal species. If you haven't a car, you can easily go sightseeing Palermo, Cefalù, and many other places thanks to the nearest train Station of Santa Flavia (0,200 KM.) or the Bus Station of Bagheria: pullmans and trains leave each hour and are very cheap and convenient means of transport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I moved from Palermo just a few months ago and I live in the main house with my husband, dogs, cats and my mother. I have a degree in Letter and I'm a teacher in Latin, Greek and Italian for stidents of Liceum and University. I like to warmly welcome the new guests and make them feel perfectly at ease. I am ready to meet their needs and solve small problems to make their pleasant and relaxing vacation, I gladly entertain in a fast and friendly conversation, I suggest them most interesting tourist destinations and traditional Sicilian dishes and the popular festivals to see: the whole, without invading and always respecting their space and their time. Somebody says that my enthusiasm for Sicily is infectious. I provided recommendations when my guests-friends ask and otherwise I let them enjoy their time in Italy.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Flavia PA, Italy:
My husband and me bought this home because we needed the home of my husband's Institute of Scientific Research. Tourism gives food to scientific research.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I love this home because of the romantic atmosphere: the ancient pink building immersed in a large mediterranean garden overlooked by the archaeological ruins of the ancient Soluntum, and overlooking the village of Santa Flavia with breathtaking views on the hils, the sea and the mountains around Palermo.You can touch the wonderful Monte Pellegrino and walk along the way to go to the duomo of Monreale. Because of the distance from the road (mt.200), the place is very peaceful but you can easily get to the lovely and clean village of Santa Flavia and the very pleasant harbour of Porticello with nice restaurants. Because of he near train line/station you can occasionally here a train horn, but they don't run late so it shouldn't disturb anyone - I actually like hearing the trains, they gave a romance to the place. Palermo is about 20 km and easily reachable by train too. I recommend this house strongly for who likes a good quality of stay in Sicily .I like to welcome my guests and they feel very much at home.
