The Sicily region

Torretta is a small town of Palermo, near the Mount Canalicchi, 313 meters above the sea level, easily accessible by a network of roads connecting the village with Palermo, Capaci, Carini and Montelepre. Founded in 1599, Torretta was first a barony and then a fief, belonging to the noblest families of Sicily as Grifeo, Traina, and finally, for four centuries, Tomasi di Lampedusa (from which descended Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, author of the famous Italian novel “Il Gattopardo”), who here owned one of their summer residences.

The local economy is based mainly on livestock farming (mainly cattle) and agriculture, characterized by the cultivation of citrus and olive trees spread on the territory of the country. From these olive trees, we produce a very tasty extra virgin oil using the local oil mills. More interesting are also: the woodworking and the production of furniture of exquisite workmanship, the presence of some restaurants and bakeries where you can taste bread produced following the old traditional methods.

As in all small towns of Sicily, also in Torretta is still possible to appreciate the genuine products of agriculture and livestock local and taste the typical products of Sicilian cuisine such as cookies, cakes, breads baked in wood-fired ovens, caponata, cheese and extra virgin olive oil produced locally. In the restaurants located in the village and surrounding areas you can also taste the typical Sicilian dishes at good prices. Don't miss every year, the two local culinary events:

The famous “Festival of Vastedda”, organized on every 8th December during the feast of the Immaculate Conception, where you can taste local products and the Vastedda, loaf of bread with extra virgin olive oil, salt, pepper, cheese and cottage cheese, accompanied by a good sip of wine;

The “Festival of Setti Pitanzi“ organized on every 19th March, during the Feast of St. Joseph. During the event are distributed local products, sandwiches with sausage, cheese, wine, cakes with cottage cheese (typical sweet) and a plate of “Virgineddi” (fresh pasta cooked with vegetables and greens). All these are enjoyed by traditional and contemporary music.

Central Palermo

The territory of Torretta borders inward with the town of Carini and towards the sea with the town of Capaci. Both neighboring towns are rich in history and tourist attractions.

Carini, about 4 km from Torretta, is the largest town in the area, where there is the famous Castle of Carini's Baroness, recently restored and open to the public. The Castle was built between the late eleventh and early twelfth century, over an earlier building certainly Arabic, created by the first Norman feudal lord Rodolfo Bonello. The recent excavations carried out walls of earlier ages than Norman. Today it is possible to visit the Castle paying a ticket of only 3 euro.

Capaci and Isola delle Femmine,about 6 km from Torretta, are the main coastal towns in the area and due to their beaches, pubs on the promenade, the crystal clear sea, attract thousands of tourists every year. The beach extends for about 1 km and is characterized by some sections free and some lidos. From Isola delle Femmine beginsthe Marine Reserve of Capo Gallo, which can be visited both by land and sea routes (for scuba divers). Besides the sea, the area is also famous for its good fish and for the fish market that takes place every morning in the small port of Isola delle Femmine.

"Fantastic stay!"

The house is located in a very peaceful and relaxing place, surrounded by nature and many olive trees. It's located at few kilometers from the airport and just some minutes from Palermo. The apartment is complete with all amenities, including wireless internet and a washing machine. Excellent hospitality, Giuseppe (the owner) gave us lots of information on restaurants and places to visit in Palermo. I recommend it very much to all those who want to visit Palermo.

"very nice, quiet location, friendly host, overall meets expectations"

We had a pleasant stay for a week on Sicily. The appartment was clean and sufficiently big enough for 2 people. The building is located in a beautiful garden with olive trees and has a large porch. It was a very good value for the fair price and overall we would recommend the appartment.

Hi Hubert, thank you! It was very nice to meet you and I hope to welcome you again in the future. Best Regards, Giuseppe

"Highly recommended"

Casale Orioles is a beautiful house and place to spend your vacations. Many interesting places and beautiful beaches are easily to reach. The owner prepared a lot of (insider)information and if you need some help, he will be there :-) We would stay there immediately again.

Thank you very much. I hope to welcome you again in the future. Best Regards, Giuseppe

"Location perfetta!!!!!!!"

Siamo stati 4 giorni presso il Casale Orioles e devo dire che è stata la scelta migliore che potessimo fare!!!!! Immerso nel verde, fuori dal traffico e dal caos cittadino, ma logisticamente vicino a tutte le località marittime più in voga e a soli 4 km dal capoluogo siciliano. Camere comode, accoglienti, molto pulite e ben arredate. Il proprietario Giuseppe molto preparato, gentile e disponibile ci ha fornito itinerari turistici, consigliato ristoranti dove degustare le prelibatezze tipiche del palermitano ma anche cucina a base di pesce. Lo consiglio vivamente e spero di poterci ritornare al più presto!!!!!!!

Grazie, è stato davvero un piacere avervi ospitato. Spero di rivedervi presto. Saluti, Giuseppe

"Grazioso e ...strategico!"

Comoda villa in campagna a pochi minuti d'auto da Capaci e dai principali lidi di Palermo, e per chi osa strategico pied-à-terre verso le meraviglie tra mare e storia del Trapanese. Tre appartamenti con un unico accesso e una bella e spaziosa veranda. Simpatica e calorosa l'accoglienza del locatario Giuseppe che abita nella foresteria a pochi passi dal Casale, sempre pronto a dare dritte e consigli.

Grazie Max, è stato un vero piacere ospitarvi. Spero di rivedervi presto. Tanti saluti, Giuseppe

"Great stay. Delightful host"

We live in a very rural area in UK so found the area too industrialised. Toretto and Carini are not attractive. The house is however located with beautiful views and as described. You need a car and good Italian driving experience. If you need to be near polermo this house is perfect. There are also good eating places nearby. We tsvcomdbd Sicilly. Wonderful walking in the national parks

Thank You! We hope to welcome you again in the future. Best Regards, Giuseppe
