About the property

The house is located on an estate planted with olive trees and citrus groves, and not only.It's perfect for those who want to stay in contact with nature and discover all that genuine things it can offers. If you want to wake up with the smell of orange and lemons blossoms in bloom, spend the afternoon picking figs, or simply enjoy a moment of relax in the shade of pines after a satisfying day at sea , this is the house for you ! The house is also located in a strategic position (exit highway 8 km) to reach all the major attractions of Western Sicily : it takes 10 minutes to reach Bagheria , Soluntum ; 30 for Palermo and Cefalu, an hour and a half to Trapani Erice and Segesta , two hours for Messina and surroundings .

It is a two-storey detached house of approximately 120 square meters. All rooms have a window and / or opening to the outside . From the terrace upstairs you can enjoy a beautiful view over the surrounding hills and it is ideal for watching the stars at night . The house also benefits from a garden with roses , geraniums , pansies , peonies , bougainvillea etc. .. and an outdoor shower that's very useful during the hot summer's days. The bed and bath linen is included .

The kitchen is small but has everything you need

The pool is shared with the owners. Due to the weather, the pool will be opened only from May to September

Some reviews:

'This holiday house is situated on an estate amidst olive, orange and lemon trees.

The options for a holiday here are endless. Whilst the hustle and bustle of Palermo, with its warren of narrow streets and atmospheric markets is only a short drive or train-ride away, the tranquility of the traditional Sicilian rural hinterland is always close by. Add the beautiful coastline with its secluded beaches, and you are truly spoilt for choice!

The house itself is beautifully cool, and the terrace offers the perfect 'al fresco' dining experience. Everything is spotlessly presented yet the traditional feel of a bygone era is retained.the views from the balcony towards the coast are beautiful. Come and share this corner of paradise!!' (Steve and Lynn P.,UK)

'We truly enjoyed our stay in your lovely home.We really felt at home; we also enjoyed our walks along the lemon orchard, the delicious perfume in the air coming from the lemon's; also the beautiful olive trees, not neglecting to mention the beautiful roses.To say it in one sentence: “we had a wonderful time, Thank you!'(Jon and Teresa P. USA)

Beautiful place & wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

The house is set in fantastic surroundings and the garden is absolutely beautiful.We all really appreciated the peace and relaxing amongst the flowers and lemon trees. The house itself had everthing that we needed for a self catering break and the air conditioning and cool terraces were appreciated. As well as eating out in a number of lovely resturants in the local area, Cefalu and Palermo, we enjoyed the convenience of cooking our own food and eating in the garden of the house.

Renata was a truely wonderful, caring host and she really helped us out with a major catastrophe when on arrival at the airport we were unable to hire the car we had booked as we had left our driving license at home! She arranged to pick us up from her Palermo apartment and drove us to the accommodation. She introduced us to her lovely friend and family and showed us around the local area; bars, restaurants beaches and made us feel so welcome. She then even arranged for a lovely local lady to take us to and from San Nicola for a few days until we sorted our hire car out, driving us back to the airport to pick up the car!

San Nicola is a lovely little town with everything we needed for a relaxing break and it was nice to get the train to Palermo and spend a day or two in Cefalu. A car is necessary to access all of this comfortably whilst staying a such a beatiful, tranquil base. We would definately recommend this property and area of Sicily if, like us, you enjoy clear sea, beaches, eating, stunning scenery and a peaceful base for your holiday. Thank you again, Renata!

love and best wishes,Vernice, Jamie, Jana and Giovanni

soggiorno perfetto

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso un weekend di san valentino veramente meraviglioso, tutto é stato perfetto. La proprietaria , Renata , ci ha fatto sentire subito a casa ed é stata disponibile per ogni nostra richiesta. La casa poi é molto spaziosa ed accogliente, con dei bei soffitti alti. L ' unica nota negativa della vacanza é stata la pioggia che non ci ha permesso di vivere il giardino come avrebbe meritato. Speriamo di tornare presto , ciao Renata
