In Sicily, at 20 minutes from Palermo, at few minutes walking from Porticello (enchanting village on the sea), the apartment (it's the last floor of a 3 floor building completely separated by the other two apartments, so that total privacy is assured). The villa is one of the most beautiful seaside apartment of the province of Palermo. More than apartment we should talk about villa, because the apartment has an enormous terrace of about 200 squared meters . On the perimeter of this terrace are set very long evergreen plants so that total privacy is assured. Furthermore, the people that stay at the first floor or at second floor of this building are very quiet people. Furthermore they stay in building only in August. The view is stunning: Capo Zafferano and the deep blue of the sea offer an enchanting atmosphere.
From the terrace enjoying a drink at the sunset, looking at the sea and listening to the water that breaks on the rocks, it’s an unforgettable experience. The sea can be easily reached through a staircase of about 10 meters. The crystal clear water is irresistible. The villa is very charmingly furnished – both indoor and outdoor. The house has 3 bedrooms, of which one has sea view, another one has sea view from its balcony and the third one has an en-suite bathroom, with shower, bidet and toilet. The other two bedrooms share the other bathroom that has also a tub (there is an extra bathroom with shower in the patio next to the entrance). The living area (with satellite-TV, Playstation, DVD and internet connection wifi) has large sea view, a fireplace, air-conditioning, bar, sofa, and a dining table and a double sofa bed. The kitchen is modern and fully equipped (also dishwasher). The shaded balcony has a seating and deckchairs. The wide roofterrace has seating, deckchairs and a barbecue. From the huge terrace you can sunbath and enjoy a breathtaking view on the bay. A staircase leads directly from the house to the beach. There is a private parking place. We forgot to mention other 2 things that our guest appreciate very much: the barbecue in the terrace and oven for the pizza. The oven for the pizza is not an electrical oven but a real oven where you can cook pizza firing woods.
Because of the presence of a fireplace and central heating, the very sunny climate in Sicily and the short distance to the interesting city of Palermo, this house offers a pleasant stay also during in low season.
Sant'Elia is perfect for relaxing holidays, but also a perfect base from which to explore the province of Palermo. Palermo distances only 20 km. The house is located at the beach and another white sand beach with facilities distance only 300 meters. The village Sant'Elia distance 700 meters. Also Porticello is nearby. These fisherman’s villages boasts restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce.
"Beautiful villa, excellent presentation. Wonderful location and stunning villa very well equipped. Enjoyed the wood burning pizza oven and barbecue. Sant Elia was a short walk away, a picturesque fishing villa with everthing we needed. The beach is literally on your doorstep and accessed by private steps. The view is even better than the photos on the web! So good we didnt want to go anywhere."
Fantastische woning, direct aan de zee en van alle gemakken voorzien.
Pizza oven en barbecue op de patio, groot dakterras.
Vanuit slaapkamer zie je de zon uit zee opkomen.
Prachtig uitgangspunt voor bezoeken aan Palermo, Montreale enz.
De sleutelhouder is een hele vriendelijke, bescheiden man.
Overall oordeel: 9,5
De overtocht per boot van Genua naar Palermo is ons uitstekend bevallen. Verder hebben wij de gehele vakantie volop genoten van al het moois en het goede dat Sicilië te bieden heeft (en dat is heel veel!).
We had the most wonderful week staying at this beautiful and well equipped Apartment in which the owners have created a magical atmoshere. The views are stunning and it is just a few steps (about 50) down to a quiet beach, where the sea water is warm and crystal clear. The location, layout and standard of the property was exactly as described, and the owners, Marco and Francesca, were so kind and could not have been more helpful. We particularly liked the local Pizzeria, which wasnt too expensive and served delicious food and the local shops were also very good. There are plenty of cultural and historical places to visit, but we were just content to relax and enjoy being in such an idyllic place.
I would highly recommend this property for its location, presentation and atmosphere.
Thank you so much ....
