Sicilia - Palermo - CEFALÙ


ACCOMMODATION FACILITY (CIR CODE - 19082041C224108). Villa Vittoria is framed by mountains, located in an exceptional panoramic position overlooking the bay of Palermo. It is located a short distance from the small town of Lascari, where you can find basic necessities, and the animated town of Cefalù with beach facilities, seafront, numerous clubs and shops. The villa is an island of relaxation in the midst of Mediterranean vegetation and rocky mountains, making this holiday home a special retreat where you can relax in all tranquillity and discover a side of the authentic western Sicily of undisputed beauty, such as the hill villages of the Madonie. The villa, fully air-conditioned and furnished in neutral tones, is comfortable, modern and bright. The layout of the house makes it perfect for families as two bedrooms on the upper floor and two on the lower floor are separated by the middle floor designated as the living area. The splendid swimming pool is the most beautiful spot from where to admire the infinite landscape framed by the majestic mountains. The numerous outdoor areas, including terraces, garden, lawn and barbecue, will allow for a pleasant fluidity between interior and exterior for adults and children. In the Park of the Madonie you can take long walks accompanied by specialised guides. The capital, Palermo, is just over an hour's drive away where you can admire its many wonders, such as the famous A'Vucciria market



The villa has three floors connected by an internal staircase. The main entrance opens into the spacious open-plan living area on the intermediate floor (with stairs to the upper floor and to the lower floor) which leads to a large living room with dining table and brightly-lit sitting area, thanks to the double glazing, with sofas and satellite TV; to the right is the kitchen and an informal dining table with direct access out to the terrace used for outdoor meals and to a lounge area.On the lower floor is a double bedroom with private bathroom with shower and direct access out to the garden and pool area and a twin room (with joinable beds). The upper floor consists of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds), one with private terrace, sharing a spacious bathroom with separate tub and shower.


The villa is set on a terrace cradled among the Madonie mountains with the view stretching to the sea where the sun sets. The park has been left in its original state, mostly cultivated with olive trees with the typical terraces defined by dry stone walls. Near the swimming pool, the local stone and dry-stone walls have been used to embed a stone seat by the pool, while close by are the outdoor shower and the fixed barbecue. Around the house, the luxuriant olive grove gives way to a tidy lawn, bordered by shrubs, flowers and palm trees. For the paving around the pool, stone tiles and light gravel were chosen. The terrace on the intermediate floor, accessible directly from the living area and from the kitchen, contains a dining area and a relaxation area under a canopy. On the upper floor, one of the two twin bedrooms has a private terrace – perfect for greeting the sun in the morning. A parking area for three cars is located in a secluded space inside the automatic entrance gate of the property. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The north-facing swimming pool lies on the lower terrace of the garden on an open and panoramic belvedere. It is about 10 m from the villa and can be reached down a flight of 13 steps, while from the bedroom on the lower floor access is direct and level. The rectangular pool, measuring 6 x 12 m with the depth varying from 1 to 1.70 m, is lined in PVC and has chlorine purification and internal and external lighting (allowing it to be used at night as well), and submerged steps in one corner. The surrounding stone-surfaced sunbathing area is equipped with sunbeds and umbrellas, while embedded in the rock is a stone seat creating a relaxation corner. A few steps away is the solar shower and a stone structure with barbecue. The pool is available from May 1st to October 31st.
