Villa ensures romantic and pleasantly relaxing stay for weeks or weekends enveloping you in a dreaming welcoming and full of local colour atmosphere. The three bodies of Villa Paladino, smartly standing on the ridge of a lush hill, with the ancient marble fountain full of water arum and water lily embellishing the whole, create a wonderful and amazing atmosphere in the exuberance of a nature lady of the site, full of different species of birds (we are close to Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano) in which the majestic peregrine falcon, the rare prey bird so much loved by Federico the Second of Swabia, that nests on the rocks of Solunto, and full of innumerable species of plants too, thanks to the exceptionally mild weather and the plenty of water, in which tamarisk, oleander, pomelia, august giant strelizia, ivy. wisteria, Sicilian jasmine, azzorico, carob, olive tree, maritime pine, date palm, dwarf palm, mimosa, geranium. yucca, mangiafumo, laurel, box (tree), pitosforo, dracaena, aloe, cypress (tree), pink(-fleshed) grapefruit, and so on. You see all this in a place between history and legend, that, embracing two gulfs and overlooking the green hills of Bagheria and Santa Flavia with the well-known eighteenth century villas and the Basilica Soluntina, leaves everybody breathless in front to so great natural and cultural treasures.

Our guests on holidays can take part in nature walks, day-trips and individualized excursions organized on request. They can taste inside the villa the best Italian and Sicilian wines, well-known typical cakes and cheeses directly coming from selected production sites, together with a lot of ancient local gastronomic specialties too.

Villa is close to the archaeological Park of Solunto and near to its Museum. The Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano and, along the coast, the underwater archaeological site of Formica lie close to Villa too. 200 meters away you may go sightseeing the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing touristic villages of Porticello and Sant'Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes.

About 1 Km. away, driving along the quite panoramic coast road that goes past Sant'Elia and the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you'll get the maritime village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino, from which you can admire a breath-taking view on the gulf of Palermo and on Monte Pellegrino.

At the same distance you can admire the beautiful eighteenth century villas built by the best Sicilian nobility on the panoramic luxuriant hills of Bagheria.

200 meters away the station of Santa Flavia allows you to take one of the train going to Palermo or Cefalù.

In 30 minutes by car you can easily get to Palermo and go sightseeing the precious monuments, the historic centre, that is the biggest in Europe, where spectacular, endless, full of goods and sweet-smelling open-air markets take place, the museums and the important theaters. Don't forget to go sightseeing the well known lido of Mondello and the town of Monreale, with the most beautiful and important Cathedral in the world too.

In the same time you can also get to the well known touristic medieval town of Cefalù, with its marvelous beach and the Arab-Norman Cathedral, or to the enchanting Castle of Caccamo and, always looking at the sea,(without never losing the view of the sea) adding a few minutes, to the spectacular National Natural Madonie Park (mt.2000 on the sea), that are the highest mountain chain in Sicily after Etna and the paradise of rare protected animal and vegetables species.

you'll be enchanted by sunny Sicily, its nature, its sky and sea, its culture, its food and wine, its colours and smells, its people...

4/5

"An ideal location for exploring the Palermo area."

We enjoyed our week long stay at this new custom built 2 buildings/5 lets site with dramatic views across Palermo bay with brilliant sunsets from the landscaped garden. Our studio was spacious, well finished and furnished, with a small gas hob. The pool area was ideal for sunbathing and relaxing. The owners were at the site most days and very friendly and helpful.
A car is essential with ample parking space but do find the location on Google Earth to help identify the turning off the coastal road which needs a more obvious sign. We enjoyed the local fishing port of Porticello and used its supermarket. A day in Palermo is a must and well set up for the tourist. Other nearby essential visits are Monreale, Cefalu and the mountainous interior.
