This whitewashed villa is set in the Madonie mountain range overlooking Cefalù and has impressive views down to the sea. There are a few other villas nearby but you’ll feel totally private.
Angelo manages the property and can arrange visits to wineries and cookery classes as well as tours of the area or of Palermo. Find a basket of typical Sicilian products and the basics in the kitchen, help yourself to fruit from the garden in season, use the barbecue and dine al fresco. Gibilmanna, 1.5 km away, has a minimarket and a simple pizzeria.
The shaded terrace has cooling sea breezes or you can swim in the pool. Buzzing Cefalù, a 15-minute drive away, has shops and restaurants both along the seafront promenade and in the cobbled lanes of the historic town centre. Palermo is a 45-minute drive.
