About the property

It is situated in the greener area of Castelbuono (1 km far from the town centre and 15 km from the sea), a short walk from 'Madonie Park', in the mountain resort Portella san Sebastiano. There are ash trees, olives, cherries, almonds, vineyards and a lot of other fruit trees all around. So it can be considered a quiet island, far from noisy cities. There is a large terrace (with barbecue) with a wonderful view as far as Eolie islands. The flat is composed of a large kitchen-room with a divan bed, two double bedrooms, a large bathroom with a shower and a laundry. All the rooms are well furnished and you can watch TV also outdoor. If you want you can ask a guide for excursions in the 'Madonie Park' and discover the natural beauties (flora and fauna) that this part of Sicily has got. Castelbuono is 22 km far from Cefalù and 90 km from Palermo. A wonderful holiday at ' Ciliegio' gives the opportunity to take a rest wrapped in the silence of he country, to lake part in several entertainment and performances which have made Castelbuono and the towns of Madonie Park famous all over the world. Castelbuono is an ideal starting-point for trip and excursions in the Park for those people who love riding a bicycle. They can walk following up the paths or read in the garden; they can cook or devote themselves entirely to enogastronomie pleasures offered by same typical restaurants of this place. Children can play in a large terrace at guests' disposal in which they can dimly see the Eolie Islands.

Beautiful place on the hill above Castelbuono

  • 4 of 5

Apartment with spacious terrace on the sun side, great view, a bit fresh this time of the year (pool open from mid may). The landlord is very friendly and a real source of information about nearly everything. Quiet area, nice town with good and busy atmosphere in the central 'piazza margherita'. Natural park area Madonie offers good hikes in hills/mountains.

The property is very peaceful, located near a small town which can be reached in some 20 minutes on foot. Every day one can find a farmer selling fresh vegetables and fruits in the town. Also there is a fish shop where they sell freshly caught fish and seafood. Strongly reccomend. There is only a small road by the property, so only few cars passes during the day. The appartment is very clean and neat. There is a large terrace with a SPECTACULAR mountain view. The only disadvantage which can be also interpreted as an advantage is the absence of the internet. The owner is really kind and helpful. Best regards and our gratitude!

Rural setting

  • 4 of 5

Very nice location in a quiet rural setting with mountain views, and coast in the distance; well equipped apartment with pleasant outdoor seating and pool access. Friendly, helpful owner. Car required for access to nearby Castelbuono, which is a charming little hillside town, with some good inexpensive restaurants. Good base for hill walking in the Madonie mts for the more adventurous and energetic (with some marked trails of different grades starting from the rifugio Crispi a few kms away).

Beautiful and peacefull place

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the appartment for a week last july 2017 as a family of four with two kids aged 13 and 11.

The warm welcome by owner Vincenzo and his son Allessandro was very nice and they helped us with all we needed. The apartment is nice and clean and has all you need. The environment is beautifull and the apartment is well located for trips in the area. The swimmingpool is delightfull and all this makes you come to rest during your stay. Castelbuono itself is indead one of the nicest villages in the area with some excellent restaurants and the best bakery you can imagine. The neareby coastal village of Cefalu is a good place the enjoy the beachlife.

We highly recommend this place for whatever you wish to do on Sicily. It's well located and suitable for any type af vacation.

Ensemble mitigé avec une villa réellement sublime mais loin d'être indépendante.

  • 4 of 5

Superbe villa, propriétaire très accueillant. Le logement était propre et vraiment bien situé. Un gros point négatif cependant: terrasse et piscine communes avec 4-5 logements, contrairement à ce qui est avancé dans l'annonce.

Un paradis au frais

Après de longues journées de visites nous avons apprécié le calme, la beauté des paysages, la piscine parfaitement entretenue et la belle terrasse ombragée ou nous faisions de délicieuses grillades.

Les enfants ont pu se détendre complètement

Enzo a été très prévenant et chaleureux. Courtois,discret et redoutablement efficace si vous avez besoin de quelque chose.

Nous recommandons vivement ce lieu magique.

Au plaisir d'y retourner
