The Sicily region
Sicily is the largest and most important island in the Mediterranean, it extends for 25,460sq km. Planes of fertile red soil, excellent for the cultivation of vine grapes, citrus orchards and olive groves, alternate with hills, green in spring for the cultivation of wheat and, among the majestic mountains, Mount Etna, the most popular of active volcanoes. The climate is typically Mediterranean along the coasts, with mild, short winters and moderate rainfall.
Freeway connection, located 200 meters away, will allow you to quickly connect, explore and discover remote areas of the island.
Casteldaccia is east of Palermo, so you will be closer and will not meet the city traffic when driving for a day trip to Cefalu', Taormina, Mount Etna, Siracusa, Agrigento, Selinunte. We recommend excursions to: Palermo e Monreale (20 km), Cefalu' (50 km), Segesta, Agrigento, Madonie Natural Park (80 km), Taormina (200 km), Mount Etna (200 km), Siracusa (250 km), Eolie Islands.

This villa is located in the heart of Casteldaccia, a quaint village on a Sicilian hill, two km from the sea and 20 min. easy drive to Palermo. The location offers all the best. Placed in the centre of the town, the villa overlooks an intimate garden, while at the same time it offers you a taste of local life and easy walks for your shopping. Excellent is the local production of wine. Don’t forget to taste the world renown 'Corvo, Duca di Salaparuta', the pasta Tomasello, exported in USA and Canada and the extra virgin cold press olive oil 'Giada'.
Palermo, 1.500.000 inhabitants, capital of Sicily – an island in the sea of sunlight – is a splendid city adorned in the course of 2500 years by Greeks, Arab Emirs, Norman Kings and Spanish Viceroys; it offers an incomparable example of beauty, history, culture and traditions to excite the mind and the eye. It has a wide selection of museums and entertainment. Casteldaccia is well connected to Palermo by freeway and by public transportation.

We had a great time, amazing weather and loads to see. The house and garden were lovely, really full of character and feeling of the owners. The key getting etc was all very easy. We parked just outside in the street, there always seemed to be space. The info left in the house was very useful, maps, suggestions, pamphlets etc. We didn't get the wifi to work. And the front bedroom was very noisy first thing with traffic from the street outside. But all in all it was a great holiday and I would certainly recommend the house to anyone fancying a trip to Sicily.

The villa was fabulous! We felt welcome from the minute we arrived until the minute we left. The owners, Maria and Riccardo were outstanding. They were helpful, fun and a great source of information. The villa was our home away from home. The villa is spacious, fully equipped and clean. It is good for small or large groups. The backyard is a beautiful private/peaceful garden. The garden makes you feel like you are in the tropics. Everything was in great working condition. The air conditioning was a big plus. The location is close to the market, shopping, bakery and restaurants. The town was small and gave us great feel for Sicily. We would recommend a car to see the country side and beaches. The ocean is close by and beautiful. We hope we make it back to see Maria and Riccardo again soon!

This house will appeal to most people. It is very spacious and secure and is situated within a non 'touristy' Italian town. It is very spacious with a large kitchen / diner and 3 bathrooms, it also has a large patio in a mature garden. It is ideally situated being close to Palmero and Cefalu.
The town of Casteldacchi is charming with it's main square being within a stones throw, bakeries and supermarkets are all close by. We all enjoy Italian cuisine and found that Pomodoro e Mozzarella to be the best, this restaurant is a little stroll away and is situated on a quiet, little square. We would encourage the hiring of a car to visit the marvellous sights of Sicily, Syracuse / Ortigia and Monreale are a must so is Cefalu - especially for swimming - & nearby Castlebuono.
