Why daniele baccelliere chose Santa Flavia
The house is a renovated attic with a beautiful terrace with sea views and views over the rooftops of the quaint fishing village. Central location but quiet at the same time. Near to all the food shops and services. The beaches are located in the vicinity of the apartment.

Apartment is nice
Property was not properly described, it is located on the 3rd floor up very steep steps and this was not in the description. We did not stay as it would be extremely hard for my wife to climb all of those steps.
I am sorry that the house was not suitable for you, but in the description it says that there is no elevator. I hope however that the your holiday has proceeded well. Fortunately, this is the first time I have received such a bad reception.
Not very good trip
Firstly the photograph advertising the flat is of a different property in a different village further down the coast.
Santa Falvia and most of Northern Sicily is filthy with litter and dog muck everywhere
The flat was not very clean and towels, bedding of poor quality
Stairs up to flat very steep and difficult to negotiate. Not for elderly or people with any health issues
Parking was a problem and twice we were asked for money to ensure the hire car was not damaged. The roads are tiny and a one way system is difficult to negotiate
Driving in Northern Sicily was a nightmare not to be undertaken by anyone of a nervous disposition
Went to Southern Sicily several years ago and loved it. The North is nowhere near as good.
The owner Daniele met us and was very pleasant and helpful and we have already passed on our concerns to him directly.
I am truly sorry that your holiday was not appreciated. Fortunately, in many years it is the first time I receive such a negative review. I will however treasure your words to try to improve.
Beautiful flat and village
We spent a nice time in the flat though it got really cold outside (even snow). The conditioning system worked and there was everything we needed. The village is a genuine fishing village. It is close to Palermo, so you can easily visit the city. But it is not too close, so you can also relax and enjoy the silence what was very important for us, to recover from the city stress (Berlin). It is worth to go on the hill next to the village to visit the Phoenician remains and have a great view to Palermo, Termini and Cefalú. We thank Daniele for the kind welcome an recommend the apartment warmly.
Cara Dorette....Thanks so much for your kind reviews and comments. I hope you can return to Sicily when there will be a bit 'more than hot, and I hope to see you again my guests ..... maybe next time you'll find two good cannoli. soon Daniele
Since we stayed during a ...
Since we stayed during a low season it was not crowded. Actually it is a nice place and we felt like living not in a touristic apartment, but like in a cozy home. A terrace on a roof got a wonderful view to surroundings. The owner Daniele was really very friendly and showed us everything that was needed. In brief this is a place that probably we will come back one day.

"I really enjoyed my stay...
"I really enjoyed my stay in this flat very much. Very comfortable appartment includes everything you may need on daily basis during your holiday. It was pleasure to eat on the balcony with very pictoresque view over charming fishermen village of Porticello. You can also relax on the terrace with breathtaking view on seaside and Solunto mountains on both sides. Building is in perfect location, both very cosy and close to shop, vegetable market, kiosk etc. Don''t hesitate to visit nearby Serenella gelateria for wonderful pistacchio ice-cream."
Palermo / airport take the motorway A19 direction Messina. Casteldaccia exit and continue for Porticello. With the train from Palermo to get off at Santa Flavia.
for lovers of fine Sicilian cuisine there are renowned restaurants. For lovers of archeology, it is recommended that the archaeological site of Solunto, Punic town over the village.
