LOCATION:

This villa 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 all the best. Placed in the centre of the town, the villa overlooks an intimate garden, while at the same time it offers you a taste of local life and easy walks for your shopping. 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.

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.

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 picturesof 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

I'm from Australia and my wife is a kiwi (New Zealander) over here for a long holiday. We met up here with my brother and sister from Wales & England respectively.

What a catch up! With spouses we were six and all had a fantastic stay. (We hadn't seen each other for several years!)

Maria & Riccardo, you added so much to our stay - molto gentile!

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!!

About Maria

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

Maria purchased this villa in 1965

Why Maria 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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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 the very detailed instructions, very handy.

fabulous holiday. Just wish it could have been longer.

A Sicilian gem

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with a real Sicilian feel. Private and well equipped with a wonderful tropical hidden garden, yet right amongst the hustle and bustle of a Sicilian town. A wonderful position for exploring the Northern coast line, close to the autostrada but also quieter slower roads. We loved Casteldaccia, friendly locals, wonderful ice cream in the square and pastries from across the road.

We visited Cefalu and climbed the rock, had the roman remains at Solunto to our selves and enjoyed the grandeur of Segesta.

A great place for the family or large group, I recommend it without reservation and would love to return.

Most relaxing vacation spent

  • 5 of 5

House was wonderful. 5 women we had plenty space. House was clean and as described/ Garden was wonderful had many breakfast out side. Map of area was provided by owner was most helpful.

I would most diffently recommend to others and have since my return. It was everything and more.

Car is recommended and yes it is!!. As for the town not much to do no internet cafes, or shopping mall in the town. Which in itself added to the charm. All was a train ride away(5mins). Train station was never open to buy ticket had to get tickets at local shops, so pre plan if using trains.
