"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.
