Il Cottage sul mare (the Cottage by the Sea) is part of a group of houses in the wooded saddle of breathtaking Capo Zafferano, looking southward directly onto a quiet bay and the Sicilian coast West to Cefalù. A long private staircase takes you directly down to the rocky bathing coast on crystal clear water, or you can walk along the road to one of the public beaches around the bay. Capo Zafferano, with its unmistakable promontory, is a protected natural area just to the north of Bagheria – a suburb of Palermo famous for its 18th Century Baroque Villas – with an abandoned lighthouse at the end of a walk down the narrow road carved out of spectacular cliffs. The nearby fishing villages of Sant'Elia, Porticello, and Aspra all have different styles of fishing boats as well as their markets, pubs and restaurants from romantic to family-friendly. Alternatively, you can visit the ancient Greek ruins of Solunto with the Regional archaeological museum on-site, just across the bay.

With ample parking, the cottage is also an ideal base for a tour of Sicily, as it is only 10 minutes from the motorway despite its sensation of rural maritime calm. Once on the autostrada, the city of Palermo is only 20 minutes and its airport 30 minutes to the West and Cefalù a little over a half hour to the East. Both Agrigento and Catania are less than two hours' drive.

The house (35 mq plus patios) was thoroughly re-built in 2011 on the site of an old woodworking shed (hence the name); the side porch remains as a testimony of the previous structure. The simple and practical interiors all carry the owner's very personal decorating touch to give an intimate and homey feeling. The three patios provide comfortable outside relaxation spots at different times of the day and the covered patio an ideal place for a fish barbecue dinner or a drink admiring the view of the bay through the pine woods. Guests also have access to the shared terrace with its spectacular view of S. Elia across the bay as well as the small but refreshing swimming pool.

"Wow!"

HAd an amazing stay at Cottage by the sea! Jesse & Maria were amazing host and live closely but the house still feel secluded. Only a few steps from the beach and a small car-drive to Sant'Elia (would only take a couple of minutes by bicycle) for shops etc.

Had an amazing cake on arrival (my wife wants the recipe!) and a fantastic pizza dinner with our lovely hosts.

Dear friends, thank you so much for your nice feedback. It has been a pleasure to help you finding a nice accomodation for your holidays. We are looking forward to your next trip to Sicily! Your friend at visitpalermo
