Typical 1970s villa lying
in the hills close to Palermo
Typical 1970s villa lying in the hills close to Palermo, in the hills that dominate the gulf of Punta Raisi.
The villa, constructed around a centuries-old carob tree, is surrounded by a large garden with a small but pretty swimming pool shaded by trees, and a tennis court. Indeed the garden, with its terraces, porticos and numerous tree-shaded spots, has been designed to make outdoor living effortless and easy. View Villa Video
The villa is on two levels. On the ground floor are a large living room, a separate dining room and a simple slightly old-fashioned kitchen – with its 1970s ceramic tiles intact – which has direct access to the outdoor dining and barbeque area. On this level there is also a bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
An open staircase leads to the upper floor. Here there are two suites, each consisting of a double bedroom and a twin bedroom and a bathroom – making them ideal for two families. Each room has its own private terrace.
The large trees, the vast garden and hilly location guarantee mild temperatures in the height of summer – a rare and precious thing in Sicily! Indeed, with the swimming pool, solarium and tennis court, many guests are happy to spend their days at home! However, for those who do want to explore, the beach at Isola delle Femmine, with its many lidos, is just 5 kilometres away, while the wilder coast of Capo Gallo (a nature reserve) with beautiful landscapes, a craggy shoreline and crystalline waters, is an 8 kilometre drive.
