We stayed in the villa for a week in September 2017 as a party of 6 adults. It was the perfect place to be introduced to Sicily.
Located on a slope winding towards the see, the place combines total privacy with convenient access to the surrounding area by car. Owned by a family of architects, the building was superbly designed by them as a holyday retreat. The contemporary villa is centered around large terraces with breathtaking views of Capo Zaferano. Well integrated into its surroundings, the villa takes advantage of the special beauty of the property and blends in the dramatic slope of the terrain. On the main floor there are the living/dinning rooms with large openings to a vast semi-covered terrace that surrounds the house, a kitchen, a couple of large bedrooms with separate bathrooms, and a small room which can be used as an additional bedroom or a nursery. On the lower floors there are 2 other bedrooms with bathrooms and separate private terraces. The whole layout perfectly integrates the unusually spectacular surroundings into a house that gracefully allows for individual privacy as well as collective gatherings.
From the villa there is a meandering path through nature down to the sea, where one can swim in the clear water, as we did several times a day.
The house is tastefully furnished with all necessities. It has all needed amenities, including an outside grill, long chairs, beach towels, etc.
Giacomo, one of the owners, whose father designed the villa with love and talent, manages the property with grace and competence. Himself an architect, he provided us with a description of the property that revealed professional details not obvious at the first glance, and introduced us to the amenities and particularities of the property. For the day to day operations Giacomo is assisted by Rosario, a nice neighbor who knows the property and the area well, and is always happy to help with anything, from driving us to local restaurants to buying fish on the local market. Local restaurants and grocery stores are a few kilometers away, easily accessible by car. Palermo may be accessed by train, a comfortable 15 minutes ride from the local station in Bagheria.
It is hard to describe well this spectacular villa. Even pictures are not sufficient. It is a mostly visual experience, supported by comfort, luxury, and the beauty of nature. Is was for us a perfect sojourn, mainly because this extraordinary villa. As we left the place we pledge to
