A comfortable country house with a beautiful sea view nestled in the beautiful countryside and yet just few minutes from Cefalù and 1 hour from Palermo. Ideal base for day-trips to the Aeolian Islands or to the sicilian west coast.

The house is very comfortable and functional: has 1 double-bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower, kitchen, living room with fireplace area. In the loft floor there is the other double bedroom (single beds). Two months ago the owners have renewed the bathroom and the kitchen so they are really new. In the living room there is a sofa which can become a sofabed for two persons. The use of this must be comunicated to the host which will apply a little increase price.
The countryhouse has lot of openspaces, where to relax (in front of the house in the terrace and in the barbecue area).

The owners possess another house very close to the house that they usually rent. If the other house is available they will be delighted to welcome travelers.
The sicilian house is nestled in the green countryside and in the blue of the Mediterranean sea. In some special day you can also see from the terrace the Aeolian islands.
It's a strategic place for trekking (Madonie Park), for biking, for horse riding. It's also a good place for visit historical sites (small sicilian centres as Castelbuono, Gratteri, etc...). At the same time it is very close to the town of Cefalu that has a very special arab-norman heritage and has also beautiful beaches along the coast.
Inside: Is a Mediterranean villa with a practical layout, clean lines and comfortable furnishings. The open-plan ground floor features a living and a dining area, a kitchen and a bathroom with shower. There is an open fireplace. Upstairs ther is a double bedrooms The single looks out onto the unspoiled country woodland to the side of the house. The last part of the access road to te house is steep and quite narrow, so we recommend guests hire normal-sized cars (i.e. not people carriers).
Outside: arrival at the house is via a winding road up the mountain from the town of Cefalu'. At the end of a short private drive, there is a parking space conveniently to the side of the house. At the front, is a terrace area for outdoor dining and relaxation with easy access to the kitchen and the barbeque area. The outdoor areas also feature a children's play area including swings, a slide and a sandpit. Stretching up behind the house are several hectares of terraced land, featuring centuries old olive and chestnut trees.
Exploring the local Area
Nestled on the flanks of the Madonie Mountains La Rocca is a perfect way to mix mountains and sea. It’s an ideal base for exploring, on foot or by car, the mountainous nature reserve and the many towns and villages that it contains. Just fifteen minutes drive down the hill is Cefalu', with its spectacularly sited Norman cathedral, medieval town centre and sandy beach. Cefalù also offers a good and varied selection of restaurants and bars.
The motorway gives you easy access to Palermo, Monreale and the Roman remains at Solunto. Slightly further afield, the Ancient Greek remains at Segesta, Selinunte and The Valley of the Temples in Agrigento are well worth the journey.
Restaurant and pizzeria nearby
Very close (2/3 km) from the house there is the Spaccio Colombo, a famous place where to met people and where to eat typical sicilian food (restaurant and pizzeria). There you can also buy some basic food items.
