Beach place with amazing view and quiet surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Condo right next to the beach 10mins walk. Very private, closed resort mainly families being there, private access through a gate. Surrounding amazing, nice view over the mountains and close to the highway.

Condo is a bit outdated; kitchen has cracks all around corners, pots are very old and severely used, not bottle opener (broken one still available) and they have a gaz/propane stove that is not working well. Bed is extremely hard (my wife and I called it the wooden bed...).

Electricity is somewhat defective; we blow the main breaker three times during our 5 nights stay. Don't use the air conditioning while washing your clothes... that is known by the owner that showed us the breaker saying "just in case" without saying why she was showing us that...

We enjoyed the beach, really nice; you must find the free beach access... most beaches are "private" but there is a real nice "free" one close by. Some restaurants on the boardwalk but limited if you like a good meal. Somewhat a bit noisy at night because of the resort on the back but not bad. Their show and music stops at 22h00...

Perfect base camp for visiting Palermo, Monreale, and the west cost of Sicili... Erice is 1 hour drive. Must have a car.

Nette Wohnung, aber nichts für Ruhesuchende!

  • 2 of 5

Pro:

- nette & saubere Wohnung, von der alle wichtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten Westsiziliens problemlos per Auto erreicht werden können.

- aufgrund von 2 Terrassen ist immer ein Platz in der Sonne bzw. im Schatten verfügbar.

- angenehme abgeschlossene Wohnanlage

- einfache, aber ausreichende Ausstattung (außer Küche!)

Kontra:

- Küche selbst für 2 Personen zu gering ausgestattet, sodass Kochen nur unter Einschränkungen möglich

- Vermietagentur extrem verplant -> z.B. unbedingt gleich bei Anreise nach Abholtagen für Müll fragen, ansonsten bleibt man 2 Wochen darauf sitzen!

- und GANZ WICHTIG: Wohnung ist nicht dafür geeignet, einen Urlaub in Ruhe zu genießen!!! Grund: typisch italienischer Baustil -> sehr hellhörig -> man hört jedes Wort/Fernseher der typisch temperamentvollen italienischen Nachbarn (wohnen dauerhaft dort). Zudem läuft im unmittelbar benachbarten Hotel teils den ganzen Tag und immer abends bis Mitternacht 7 Tage die Woche die Disko mit einer brachialen Lautstärke, dass zeitweise eine normale Unterhaltung selbst auf der rückseitigen Terrasse nicht mehr möglich war…

Pays magnifique mais hélas trés sale et jonché de détritus, conduite automobile complètement débile

  • 3 of 5

L'appartement est très bien situé, au calme et possède tout ce qu'il faut, de plus le parking est sécurisé car voiture obligatoire. Le propriétaire est très disponible et agréable.

Par contre, ici tout est payant et cher: restaurants, stationnement et visites des monuments.

Isola delle Femmine
Car: recommended

Casa Silvia is located in the middle of the Gulf of Carini, the bay on the North-West of Palermo, between Capo Gallo and Punta Raisi. Isola delle Femmine is an old fishing village. It takes its name from the islet just opposite to it, which is a natural reserve regionally protected today. The village, well equipped during the bathing season, with its large beautiful sandy beach and its rocky coast, is the ideal destination for tourists and holidaymakers. During the day you can relax lying under the sun on the wonderful sandy beach or enjoy playing swimming, water gym, windsurfing, beach volley or just walking along the coast. There are various attractions at night: pubs, parties on the beach, shows in the square or in the sea front and so on. The house has a very good position, since it is 10 minutes far from the chief town, 15 minutes from the airport and it is just in the centre of the gulf of Carini, so that you can have a sea and a cultural holiday at the same time.

****************************************

SEASIDE ATTRACTIONS

Isola delle Femmine is a very nice sea village. Today its rocky coasts, islet included, are protected as natural reserve. If you like diving or doing snorkeling, you will enjoy admiring the colorful seabed, full of particular kind of fish and sea plants. The islet has an interesting flora and fauna: here you can find rare plants such as larkspurs and gladiolus, and various birds such as red herons, white herons and egrets, but, first of all, the islet is a royal Mediterranean seagulls’ shelter.

Isola delle Femmine has a very good position since you can easily reach other famous and wonderful beach places in a little time. In less than 1 hour by car you will reach the famous beaches of San Vito Lo Capo, Scopello and the Natural Reserve of Zingaro on the West side of Sicily, and the medieval artistic village of Cefalù on the East side of Sicily.

****************************************

FISHING AND TRADITIONS

Fishing is the most important activity of the village, so that the port, the fish market and the fisherman’s statue are emblematic places. If you want to see a particular and funny custom which has been lasting for ages, you must go to the port at dawn and participate or just watch the convivial fish auction. Fishermen arrive from their hard night work and unload the fresh squirmy fish, which will be offered with high-sounding voices to the buyers, iterating a centuries-old rite. Besides attending this old tradition you can buy fresh cheaper fish!

Another important tradition that has lasted for ages is the fish festival. Some fishermen and dozens of volunteers organize some stands in the port and offer to the participants different kinds of fish cooked according to the Sicilian traditional recipes. This is the most tempting way to know the local fish production, its flavors and its fragrance will captivate you. Absolutely not to be missed! It usually takes place in the end of August.

****************************************

PALERMO

Palermo is a city of art, rich in history, architecture, culture and tradition. The older part of the city is full of sights: Piazza Politeama and the homonymous theatre; Massimo theatre, the biggest one in Italy and the third one in Europe; the Cathedral, the royal Palace and its Palatine Chapel; the 4 Canti; the famous street markets of Ballarò, Capo and Vucciria; the Puppet Museum, extremely important for our tradition; the Botanic garden which safeguards lots of important plant species.

Furthermore, Palermo is full of hidden attractions! You can find them in little squares, in the alleys and even in the underground!! Churches whose artistic value is inestimable, ancient palaces with wonderful architectural details, sanctuaries, statues, gardens, mysterious places such as Qanat or Beati Paoli’s itineraries. You will finally fall in love with it!!
