About the neighbourhood

How to get there

The house can be accessed via autostrada A19 from Palermo towards Messina/ Catania. After about 35 kms, the autostrada divides and you take the autostrada A19 towards 'Catania' (NOT the A20 to Messina) which heads inland towards the mountains. About 12 minutes later you exit the autostrada at the junction signed for Scillato, Collesano and Polizzi Generosa. Polizzi Generosa is about 12 kms further.
