This proved to be a good base from which to explore the north coast of Sicily. There are good trip links into Palermo and Cefalu and to various attractive spots along the coast.
This apartment is a dream, close to beach located in the old town, it is quiet and inconspicuous. When you enter the courtyard is thought to one paradise. Still real loving decor. We will be back anyway and all recommend it to vacation there. 15 minutes from regional railway and the beach walk tip top
Maria's house is absolutely stunning. We were so close to the beach and everything we could possibly need. Maria was very attentive and provided a clean and comfortable place to stay. I will definitely recommend her place to friends and family!
We were lucky to find that the terrace apt was free in May for a birthday excursion. We stayed in the Garden apt a few years ago and our return to the newly renovated terrace suite was superb. The suite was just as pictured in the ad, clean and well-supplied. As always, we were warmly welcomed by our sociable and helpful hosts. Sitting out on the balcony in the morning and evening, overlooking the large and abundant garden, was the perfect beginning and ending to each day. The space is large, very comfortable and full of personal and artistic touches that say so much about our hosts. It’s a short ride to the train station to get into Palermo and the beaching nearby is so welcome for the weary traveller. Highly recommended.
I will admit outright to being a lover of Sicily, to the extent that it is the country I would most like to return to in the entire world. Staying in the Terrace Room at Maria and Riccardo's villa is to be confronted by beauty all around, from the natural world--fruit trees in the garden--and the artistic work of the owners. It is also well located for day trips around the top half of the island, full days in Palermo and overnights in Taormina and other such gloriously beautiful places. What a wonderful time my wife and I enjoyed there!
