The Sicily region
Sicily's climate is so mild that it is possible to bathe from spring to autumn. Perhaps no other European landscape is as varied and colorful and its luxuriant vegetation is reminiscent of north Africa: all species of palm trees, cycads, bougainvillea, cacti, aloes, jasmine, geraniums, etc. There are many places which are really worth visiting and spending time: Cefalu, Taormina and Mount Etna Europe's highest and most active volcano (3,323 meters) near Catania in the north east of the island, the majestic monuments in the Valle dei Templi (Valley of the Temples) of Agrigento, the beautiful Trapani area and Erice.
The coasts offer a landscape of fascinating beauty almost everywhere. There are hundreds of beautiful beaches, most famous are: Cefalu, San Vito lo Capo, Scopello, Taormina, Trapani, Pachino, Pozzallo, Marina di Modica and groups of marvellous smaller islands are scattered round the coast: the Aeolian Islands, the Egadi islands, the isle of Pantelleria and the Pelagie...
The west side of the island has beautiful scenery namely the Zingaro Nature Reserve (in the Province of Trapani), The Riserva dello Zingaro (1600 hectares of Mediterranean vegetation), palms, agaves, and 40 different types of birds, the stacks (the clipps) and tuna fish in Scopello (place tuna) with its fine Norman tower A pearl, a melting pot of civilizations of the past, the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. Palermo has been for centuries the capital of maritime trade and port for the peoples of the lands bordering the "Mare Nostrum". Conquered the Phoenicians, was the principal city of Magna Grecia, Roman colony, Arabs and Normans and Spaniards, and the Angevin and the Swabians.
All in Palermo exudes richness of cultures, red-domed churches, from San Giovanni Martorana hermits, display the manufacture of the peoples of the East, the market is increasing the historic charm of Arabia, the architecture of the centre tells the influences of different people, all equally fascinated by the city "all doors" (Panormus).
And those who have reached the sea and those who were to enjoy the mountains, enjoying the sparkling view of the Conca d'Oro, the valley planted with citrus groves that, illuminated by the sun, shining like the most precious metal. Sicily and Palermo as its capital, evokes the purity of flavours, the abundance of fruits of a rich and kissed by the sun for most of the year.
All that Palermo has its characteristic strong and ingrained. Customs of its inhabitants, dialect as influenced by Arabic and Spanish to allow Palermo to feel more like the peoples of East and some of his compatriots and foreigners to understand what is good, with some even speak their language. Palermo is famous for its mild climate, but also the pleasures of the palate. And, if you stand out among the cakes and cannoli quashed, where the queen is the ricotta, part of the "salt", which has roots in Palermo doc genuine traditions of behaviour. Take for example the bread cha meus ", ie the sandwich-pie stuffed with bovine spleen. A speciality of which are related to the rites and customs, as well as bread and cake with a sandwich, or so-called "stigghioa 'entrails of lamb roast or grilled meats, often on street corners. Not to mention the arancine: a speciality. Of course, to reel off the culinary tradition of Palermo there are not enough books.
Ecstatic to leave the visitors, help with art nouveau buildings, monuments, mansions, theatres. Teatro Massimo, the second in Europe after the Paris Opera, has returned to its former glory in 1997, after years of inactivity.
Cinisi is a seaside city with about 10.000 inhabitants. It is located long the northern coast of Sicily, exactly 25 km on the western side of Palermo There is a beautiful sandy beach by crystalline waters. This city is also a good starting point to discover the beauties of the surrounding area: it is a few Km away from many important nearby towns such as: Cefalu', Erice, Segesta ,Trapani , San Vito lo Capo, Riserva dello Zingaro, Castellammare, Scolpello, Mondello, Monreale....

"The hosts are amazing; nothing is too much trouble for them!"
The apartment is spacious and located at the end back of the house, giving guests real sense of privacy. It is located reasonably close to the beach (15-20 min walk) and Fiorella collected us from the train station while Gasparo took us to the airport on our departure.
There was a lovely welcome present, with the basics in the fridge and whatever else we needed on the first night, Fiorella just brought to the apartment. She took us shopping as we didn't have a car and we kept finding fresh figs on the outside table!
The apartment itself is a little dark and can get hot in the height of summer, something to be expected in Sicily in August. We were out most of the time though so it didn't matter too much and I am sure that it is cooler at other times of the year.
It would be useful to have more information about surrounding area such as details of boat trips etc but we spent most of our time on the beach as our stay was at the end of 2 weeks in Palermo so we were happy just staying in one place.
To sum it up; great value for money, really close to the airport and the view of the mountains from the sea is amazing! Highly reccomended if this is what you are looking for!

"Great holiday in Sicily:)"
We had a fantastic holiday with lovely weather in the beatiful town of Cinisi, what made the holiday so enjoyable was the great apartment, it had everything we needed, it was home from home! It was very clean and great for any family holiday. There are lovely places to eat near by & a few supermarkets. The beach is a 10 minute walk, with restaurants, bars and a beautiful sea.
Owners Fiorella and Gaspare are very nice, friendly and hospitable people! Their information about travelling, shopping and so on were very helpful! I would recommend this apartment to anyone. It was so lovely we hope to be back again another time! :)
Thank you Fiorella and Gaspare very very much! It was really great!:)
