Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved the beach, the sun and the warmth of the Sicilian way of living. It was very nice, the children loved to play by the sea. Two weeks in Sicily is too short! The nature, the culture,the people and the food are great.The comfort of your house together with the sound of the sea and the lamps of the fishermen's boats in the evening we 'll not easily forget! Thanks also for being so friendly and helpful.

My wife and I live in the city of Palermo, the home of the sea I inherited from my parents. I did do a comprehensive restructuring of the apartment and the terrace in 2006, and every year we gild the apartment and add plants in our terrace.

My wife is a teacher of English, and I before I was a wholesaler of all exotic animals and affection I am now renting my house by the sea only to foreign tourists. I called the house of the sea 'zoovilla' because inside you will find animals in ceramic, wood, iron, and maybe next year you will find birds in a small aviary that is located on the terrace.

My wife and I live in Palermo and when our house is not rented we dive into this place of peace and tranquility. The distance to go to Palermo is 25 km, but it is more convenient to take the train that takes you to the city of Palermo in only 20 minutes. You live in this small fishing village, eating all foods fresh and the best thing that you are away from the smog and traffic and noise of a city like Palermo.

Francesca purchased this villa in 1958

This has always been the home of the sea where I learned to swim, to fish, to go under the water and discover all the beauties that there are in these places. My parents had built back in 1958, I was not born yet. I have and I will always have a memory of this great house, the best time to spend time in this house is at the beginning of May and after 15 September, the beach is located the house is deserted seems to be in a film will find much peace and quiet and if you are lucky as we are in Sicily also a mild weather with a chance to take a swim in the crystal clear sea and very clean.

The peace and quiet in the months of less tourist influx, because in 1987 the municipality of Santa Flavia has constructed a ladder for access to all of this lovely beach. I would recommend staying in a holiday during non-tourism for those who love the sea as I've always lived in my childhood.

SICILIAN HOSPITALITY IS STILL AROUND

  • 5 of 5
When you travel from Palermo to this little village along the coast, the trip by itself can be a special experience. For example, your car can become damaged visiting the narrow streets in small villages high in the mountains. Arriving in this beautiful house at a quiet spot at the seaside is like coming home in the best environment you can imagine. The views from the living area and the terrace are relaxing and enjoyable. The sun is all around as is the beach, just in front of the house. The beach is quiet and almost no other visitors around, the water is mild for swimming (take your shoes for protection against stones). The owner will find a solution for a damaged car, will show you around the country side, show the butcher, fish shop, bakery and you will appreciate the hospitality of the house and local people. The picture provides a good impression on the location at the water, a staircase from the house leads to the beach with a gate for privacy. The property has a personal style and is well maintained and clean. As illustrated above the owner provided service beyond every expectation. I recommend this location to evryone who enjoys a quiet, private environment for a holiday.

LOVELY PROPERTY, LOVELY LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
Very homely,comfortable property with excellent amenities. Barbecue roof area, pizza oven, canoe, and much more. Lovely views of the bay, and I enjoyed sleeping to the sound of the waves. Marco and Francesca the caretakers were very friendly and helpful. The only negative I can think of is that there were many keys for the gates, doors and garage, however this did make the property very secure.

INCREDIBLE PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This villa was incredible. We arrived late on Saturday afternoon and we were greeted by both Marco and Francesca, the owners of the villa. Such warm and friendly people. They could not have been more helpful and made sure we had everything we needed prior to saying goodbye, including where to eat, where to visit and how to get there. The villa was immaculate, and was completely furnished with not only gorgeous antiques, but also very comfortable sofas, chairs, and beds. We had all the linens we needed, including beach towels, and the kitchen was completely stocked with every cooking utensil known to man, including a pizza oven and beautiful barbecue on the upper terrace. There were many small, but lovely towns within walking distance, and we were able to grocery shop every day for fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables. And we also enjoyed freshly made cannoli's every day! Incredible treat! We had a car, so were able to take many day trips to nearby towns such as Palermo, Cefalu, Monreale, and Solunto. A hike up to the wooded area near the summit above Solunto will reward you with an impressive view of the entire Gulf of Palermo. Solunto remains a "minor" archeological site, and it is certainly easy to reach by car.
Santa Flavia, Bagheria and Porticello are within walking distance, and they are all fun towns with friendly people. We also spent three of our 7 days at the beach, sunning, reading and swimming. Marco also came by and blew up his kayak and let us use that as well. The view from the balcony is unforgettable, the villa is one of the most beautiful on the coast, the upper floor terrace is also perfect for reading, sunning and relaxing, and we left there feeling we had rested our minds, bodies and souls. Thank you Marco and Francesca....we will always remember your villa in Santa Flavia. We hope to see you in California one day!

PERFECT HOUSE FOR RELAXING AND COMFORTABLE HOLIDAY

  • 4 of 5
The veranda on top of the house was a perfect spot both during sunny days, but also during the evenings with some nice barbecue. The bedrooms were roomy and the beds were OK, all sanitary places were exactly what you needed. The close distance to shops (car needed) and very good restaurants was also very positive. The only small issue was the beach just outside the house, it was a little difficult for elder people. To summarize it all: IT WAS A VERY NICE AND RELAXING HOLIDAY IN A VERY NICE FACILITY.

Owner's Response: This year we have made ??significant changes to the terrace, was built a new kitchen consists of a double sink stove with four burners, preparing for dishwashers that will buy soon, and a small refrigerator. We try every year to always reach the top for our guests, for their welfare and for the time we spend in our home. We always recommend that the best restaurant in the area that there is "Our House", because buying all the products you need and when they have all the tools that are found in the kitchens of great chefs, just you with your commitment, you can prepare and eat the best dishes that you know at the best price. In this site we recommend that our house is not suitable for the elderly who have poor mobility, because to get to the "Paradise" there are ninety-five steps to walk ... So we are sorry that not everyone can just enjoy this corner of Paradise , but we believe that we will be well-deserved five star, but it does not matter we do and we will always do everything to the best of our ability.
Give you the best, is our mission. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you all for the great result.

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT LOCATION AND GREAT HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. It is right on the water, waves lapping the shore nonstop can be heard from every room. It is roomy and quite comfortable. We were two couples, so we used the front and back rooms as master suites.

The kitchen was well supplied with all of the dishes and tools one might need. Everything worked great and we really enjoyed the coffee machine.

The rooftop terrace is large and quite comfortable. Whether you want to spend time in the sun or the shade, there are many chairs and chaise lounges.

Marco and Francesca are incredible hosts. They were very friendly and dependable. And honest! They provided us with lots of information when we arrived. We arrived short of cash and they were kind enough to guide us to the nearest ATM.....as well, they directed us to the fruit market, vegetable market, meat market and fish market!

Going up the few steps that lead on the road, turning their backs to the sea, lies on the North side of the mountain with its Catalfano walls rarely attempted even by the ancient inhabitants who preferred to settle opposite side. Solunto is an ancient settlement, because the remains of ancient civilizations are named Solunto, Solanto, Head Zafar, Sant 'Elia, Santo Nicolicchio remains a mystery. Ancient Greek colonies? Sacred place of meeting of the Eastern peoples? (A Solunto the remains of a temple to Isis think they do).A few meters from Solunto: Bagheria and its beautiful villas of the'700. And again on the provincial direction of Termini Imerese is the ancient river Imera and the Roman waterworks, Cefalù with its magnificent cathedral and its beautiful sand beach.From the balcony and from the roof terrace there are stunning views of the sea and the bay of Capo Zafferano. The beach is right below the house. Palermo distances only 20 km.
