It is an oasis of peace just at the gates of Palermo (KM. 10), a property of exceptional charm and prestige for the peculiarity of its site, by the unique characteristics in the area between Palermo and Cefalù. The three bodies of Villa Paladino Solunto, the ancient marble fountain and the incredible swimming pool similar to a natural lake, smartly standing on the ridge of a lush hill with a wonderful view on the gulfs of Palermo and Cefalù, close to the archaeological Park of Solunto and the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, create a wonderful and amazing atmosphere in the exuberance of a nature lady of the site, full of different species of birds (in which the majestic peregrine falcon, the rare prey bird so much loved by Federico the Second of Swabia,), and full of innumerable species of mediterranean plants too. You see all this in a place between history and legend, that, embracing two gulfs and overlooking the beautiful Basilica Soluntina and the green hills of Bagheria and Santa Flavia with the well-known eighteenth century villas built by the best Sicilian nobility, leaves everybody breathless in front to so great natural and cultural treasures. The incredible seasonal (May-October) pool similar to a natural lake with fountain allows adults and children to enjoy with great views down to Santa Flavia, the Gulfs of Palermo and Cefalù, Madonie and Conca D'Oro, looking at the unforgettable Sicilian sunsets too. Along the coast, the underwater archaeological site of thre Rock of the Ant lies close to Villa too. 500 meters away you may go sightseeing the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing touristic villages of Porticello and Sant’Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes. If you haven't a car, the train Station of Santa Flavia allows you to easily go sightseeing Palermo, Cefalù, and many other places (trains leave each hour and are very cheap and convenient means of transport) About 1 Km. away, driving along the quite panoramic coast road that goes past Sant’Elia and the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you’ll get the maritime village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino, from which you can admire a breath-taking view on the gulf of Palermo and on Monte Pellegrino. Near to the SS113 and the motorroads A19 and A20, Villa Paladino Solunto is a strategic point to easily go sightseeing the most important treasures of art and nature in Sicily. In 30 minutes by car you can easily get to Palermo and go sightseeing the precious monuments, the historic centre, that is the biggest in Europe, where spectacular, endless, full of goods and sweet-smelling open-air markets take place, the museums and the important theaters. Don't forget to go sightseeing the well known lido of Mondello and the town of Monreale, with the most beautiful and important Cathedral in the world too. In the same time you can also get to the well known touristic medieval town of Cefalù, with its marvelous beach and the Arab-Norman Cathedral, or to the enchanting Castle of Caccamo and, always looking at the sea, adding a few minutes, to the spectacular National Natural Madonie Park (mt.2000 on the sea), that are the highest mountain chain in Sicily after Etna and the paradise of rare protected animal and vegetables species.

We had awesome holidays in Santa Flavia. Our hosts were very nice and helpful with great tips to explore the surroundings and a big heart for our three children. The house was beautiful and well-equipped with love for nice details and it was big enough for the five of us. Our children loved the big garden! Even the pool was opened for us before time which made the children very happy. Thanks a lot to our hosts Marida and Beppe and we hope to see you soon again!

Jolie petite maison séparée en 3 logements. 2 chambres spacieuses à l'étage, vue sur le jardin en colline regroupant toute la végétation sicilienne en bord de mer. Très agréable. Un espace barbecue tout en haut fera le bonheur des groupes ou familles. L'espace piscine est intimiste et vu qu'il se partage avec peu de monde, comparé à un club, on s'y sent très bien, au milieu de la garrigue sicilienne, avec vue sur la plaine de Palerme. Magnifique couchers de soleil. Grandiose. Ensuite, je vous conseille tout de même la voiture pour pouvoir visiter les villages de pêcheurs alentour (Aspra reste notre coup de coeur) et y manger une glace. Un très bon souvenir de notre expédition à Palerme en train ! Facile et rapide, on arrive en plein centre, c'est super. Et surtout, vous aurez des hôtes en Or: Marida et Giuseppe sont adorables et c'est aussi intéressant d'échanger avec eux que rassurant car si vous avez un problème, Ils trouveront tjrs une solution pour vous! Un grand merci et à très bientôt Marida! Un baccio!

The facilities are great, a lovely pool and everything you need for a comfortable stay. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The location is wonderful, great view and easy to go to Palermo and Cefalu. Marida can tell you all the great places you can visit. We will be coming back for sure!

Unsere sehr nette Vermieterin hegte bereits vorab regen Email-Kontakt und WhatsApp, um unsere Ankunft bestmöglichst vorzubereiten. Dementsprechend hat unsere Anreise mit dem Leihwagen dann auch prima geklappt. (Ein Mietwagen ist wegen der abgeschiedenen Lage unbedingt nötig - Parkplätze vorhanden) Wir wurden von Marida herzlich in Empfang genommen, unsere Wohnung gezeigt und in alles eingwiesen. Sie hat uns auch gleich mit Ausflugstipps überhäuft - davon konnten wir zwar nur die Hälfte behalten - aber egal. Fürs erste Frühstück hatte sie ebenfalls gesorgt. Wir haben im Kühlschrank Milch, Butter, Wasser und Saft vorgefunden und dazu ein paar Hörnchen. Unser Aufenthalt war insgesamt sehr entspannt. Die Kinder durften auf dem Gelände herumräubern und auch mit dem Hund und den Katzen spielen. Der Hund Baba ist eher wild und verspielt - daher sollten sich Leute mit Angst vor Hunden unbedingt gleich vorher bescheid geben, dann wird Marida ihn nur in ihren Privatgarten lassen. Der Pool war bei unserem Aufenthalt Ende März noch im Winterschlaf. Poolbenutzung ist auf Nachfrage nur von Mai bis Oktober möglich. Nachdem es ohnehin zu kalt und recht windig war, stellte das jedoch keinerlei Problem dar. Alles in Allem war es ein rundum gelungener Urlaub in schöner Umgebung auf den von Obstbäumen umgebenen Areal am Berghang der Ausgrabungsstätte von Solunto!

It's a nice place to stay near Palermo - wonderful view, quiet place, beautiful garden, small terrasse where you can take your breakfast ... Actually there are 3 separate apartments in one house (ours was with 2 bedrooms on the 1st floor and a living, bathroom and small kitchenette on the ground floor), so it is convenient also for a group of friends (families, couples). The train station for Palermo or Termini Imerese is very close -10 min by walking or 3 min by car (there is free parking in front of the station). The host Marida and her husband are very kind, helpful and intelligent people. Marida speaks very well English, so the communication was easy. Dear Marida, we did enjoy our stay in your house! Thanks a lot!

Pour qui veut visiter Palerme sans les inconvénients du bruit, de la circulation et de la pollution, il faut loger chez marita. A un quart d'heure de Palerme en train, au calme et Marida est une hôtesse parfaite, plein de bons conseils. La maisonette est simple mais confortable et la petite terrasse parfaite pour les repas. Le aménagement de la cuisine ne permet pas de faire des repas élaborés mais on va aux restaus de santa flavia. Une très bonne adresse et un excellent rapport qualité prix.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is adjacent to the Archaeological Park of Solunto and next to its Museum. Alongside is extending the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano and, near the coast, the underwater archaeological site of the Formica. 200 meters away you may visit the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing villages of Porticello and S.Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes. Approximately 1 Km. after S.Elia, driving along the quite panoramic coastal road, that flows around the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you’ll get the seafaring village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino with its breath-taking views on the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino. At the same distance you can admire the beautiful eighteenth - century vill
Getting around
If you hire a car, I have a large parking inside the villa. As the train station of S. Flavia is close by,you can easily go by train (20 minutes, E. 2,80/person) to Palermo and then go sightseeing Palermo, the well-known Duomo of Monreale and the lovely beach of Mondello by a red touristic bus (HOP ON-HOP OFF) that stops in the most important touristic places. You can easily go to Cefalù by train too. On the website trenitalia VIAGGIATRENO you can see the schedule times of trains.
