Saffron House Oasis is the ideal base for travelers wishing to visit Palermo and the city of art and archaeological sites and nature of western Sicily, but also enjoy the sea and relax with the quiet pace of life of the typical villages of Aspra and Porticello Solunto.

Surrounded by pine trees and a garden of about one hectare, Saffron House Oasis south-facing with a large terrace overlooking the Gulf of St. Elias. The view that one enjoys from various parts of the house and the garden encompasses the central coast of Sicily to Cefalù.

From the garden, through a stone path and a staircase leads directly to the road leading to the sea. Just a few minutes walk to get access to the sea on the cliff, or a small sandy beach. The same road leads to the old lighthouse of Capo Zafferano, which offers a breathtaking view that reaches to the east of Palermo.

The large living room with kitchenette, dining table, sofa, TV, fireplace, is directly connected to the terraces that overlook the bay and to the back patio with a barbeque, pizza oven, stone seats, washing machine and table lunch.

Tolles Haus mit phantastischer Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Woche in Capo Zafferano. Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll und schön eingerichtet, wunderbare Möbel und dankenswerter Weise keine Plastikmöbel auf den diversen Terrassen. Gut ausgestattete Küche, sehr gute Betten und ein schöner Garten machen den Aufenthalt angenehm. Die Lage ist hervorragend, zu Fuß ist man in wenigen Minuten am Meer, für alles weitere benötigt man allerdings ein Auto. Wir wurden von Caterina sehr freundlich empfangen, weil das Haus etwas versteckt liegt kam sie uns sogar mit dem Wagen entgegen. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Wunderbar, großzügig und herrlicher Blick aufs Meer!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in Saffron House voll genossen! Das Haus ist großzügig geschnitten, die Einrichtung sehr nach unserem Geschmack und auch die alten Böden, Terracotta und Keramik, in den Räumen und auf den Terrassen haben uns entzückt. Der Garten ist weitläufig und es gibt eine Sonnen- und eine Schattenterrasse. Toller Blick aufs Meer.

Die Bäder waren schön und insgesamt alles sauber.

Wir waren Im Mai da und es war herrlich ruhig und entspannend! Caterina war sehr nett und zuvorkommend, mit der Schlüsselübergabe usw. hat alles gut geklappt.

Wir wollen wiederkommen, uns fehlen schon jetzt die Möwen, die über dem Capo Zafferano und über dem Meer kreisen und rufen.

S. und T.
