Casa Gelsomino is a small house located in the heart of the medieval village of Sclafani Bagni, the smallest village in the metropolitan city of Palermo and one of the oldest of all Madonie. A unique place to savor authentic Sicily in contact with nature, products and local people, far from the tourist flows and the noise of the city.
The apartment consists of two double rooms (with single beds or double bed, with possibility of an extra cot), a sofa bed for one person, kitchen, two bathrooms with shower and an entrance / living room where guests can find table games and games for their children.
Each room has a window or a balcony - with wires to hang out the laundry -.
The kitchen is equipped with all the necessary kitchenware and in the house there are essential appliances: oven, iron, hairdryer, oven, stove, fan, air conditioner.
Casa Gelsomino, as well as a house, is a concept that has to do with the magic of living slowly in a medieval village where time seems to have stopped, where the same is punctuated only by the rhythm of the bells and the colors of the seasons.
In Sclafani Bagni, in fact, you will be immersed in a surreal atmosphere, surrounded by the Madonie mountains and the beautiful Bosco Favara and Granza Nature Reserve, pampered by the view of the sea on the horizon and awakened in the morning by birdsong instead of the din of the cars.
LOCATION: The apartment is located on the second and third floor of a building, where even the lower floor, with separate entrance, is used as a holiday home / hospitality.
It is located in the historic center of Sclafani Bagni, a few steps from: main square, pharmacy, bakery, minimarket. Just walk a few hundred meters to visit the churches of Sclafani Bagni and the ruins of its medieval castle. You will then decide how much space and time you want to devote to the exploration of the village: every corner, staircase, alley is evocative and every person you meet will be available to give you all the necessary information. Do not miss the bath at the spa located in the middle of nature, just a few minutes drive from Casa Gelsomino.

CURIOSITY: Casa Gelsomino is a project born from the meeting between Filippo, originally from Sclafani and very close to the country that gave him birth (even if he now lives far from the same) who recently renovated the house that belonged to his grandparents; and Giusy, who runs the two apartments, a young practicing lawyer, in love with her native village and determined to invest time and energy to revive the economy of the same, which promised itself to not leave its land for any reason in the world .
