Terrace Suite: 3 BR/2 ½ BA - Furnished Decks, Exterior Cooking, Wi-Fi, A/C
The garden has been in my family since the year 1725, when the town of Casteldaccia was founded by my ancestors. I grew up and played every summer with my brother and my cousins in this garden, at that time much larger. Many years later, also my children played in it every summer. Many of my fondest memories are connected to this garden
Maria purchased this House in 1965
Why Maria chose Casteldaccia
The house, built in 1965, was my first project after I graduated in Architecture! Every year I return with my family to this house and to Casteldaccia to restore my energy and get in touch with my roots. For 10 years, during summer, I ran in the garden a ‘Scuolina’, a free Art School for the children of Casteldaccia and nearby towns, teaching drawing, painting and ceramics.
What makes this House unique
My home is located off the main road of Casteldaccia, at walking distance from all the stores. At the same time allows me to retreat at home in the paradise of my subtropical garden. Casteldaccia is close to Bagheria, a larger town, where I can go shopping, and still enjoy the fresh air of the countryside. Palermo, the capital of Sicily, is only 20 minutes away from my reach, with its history, culture and traditions, restaurants, museums, churches, squares.

lovely place, fantabulous owners :))
The property is located in a small town and it looks quite ordinary from the street, but as soon as you cross the gate you fell like walking into a different world. We arrived at very early morning hours but the owners waited and greeted us on arrival. The accommodation is spacious with big roofed terrace accommodating separate shower, dining area as well as barbecue and outside lounging set. We spent amazing time in there. The villa is located close to a small beach (5 minutes drive), various restaurants, supermarket, bakery and patisseries where you can get all the traditional sweets and of course gelato. The owners- amazing people- friendly, helpful, very hospitable. On the last day we overstayed due to a late flight. Although the check out is 10 am Maria offered her place for us to stay until we are good to go for the airport. Highly recommend, next time in Sicily I'll stay with Maria and Ricardo. Love you guys
Hello dear Bodgan, Elzbieta and Aleksandra,
Thank you so much for your fabulous review, it will go a long way!
It was a pleasure to meet you and spend time together. We do really hope to see you again sometimes in the future...
Wishing you all the best,
A fabulous holiday
We stayed at Maria and Ricardo's Terrace Villa for two weeks in August. We have three sons ages 8,15 and 18 and there was plenty of space for all of us. The villa had everything we needed and was very clean. This is a beautiful property with lots of special artistic details. It has been lovingly renovated by the owners and was an absolute pleasure to stay in. This is not a tourist area and by going out every morning to the local shops we got to know the people despite not speaking a word of Italian! Maria and Ricardo advised us about all the best places to shop and eat. The restaurants are very reasonably priced and the food was fantastic. The beach is a short drive away and the tourist town of Cefalu is about a 25 minute drive. The train station is very close and for 2.50 you get a ticket to Palermo which is about a 30 minute journey. We have wonderful memories of our holiday especially the beautiful meal Maria and Ricardo cooked for us towards the end of our stay. The setting of this house is very special with fig, olive and fruit trees growing in the garden. My memory of this holiday will always be the smell of Jasmin as we climbed the stairs to our terrace every night. If you want a real Sicilian experience go to Casteldaccia .
Sicily. amazing history, welcoming people!
A super place to stay, informal and understated. our hosts were present when we were there... a bonus. Sicilian folk are welcoming and generous in their acceptance. Great accommodation and very handy for a popular beach and transport. You must do Pallermo on a Vespa!
very clean and orderly
A very nice place to visit lots to see and do .Very difficult driving conditions in towns though.
Really nice with a walled in garden and all the commodities. Very good relationship with the owners. Will recommend.
a garden oasis !
My boyfriend and I stayed at Maria's Terrace Suite in June and it was a real treat ! The garden oasis is lovely and with it's lush greenery it really helped with the summer heat! The room was comfortable and very clean and all the details that Maria and her husband put in to the place really show their love for their home and land. I plan on visiting again soon as it's so easy to get around Siciliy from Casteldaccia.
VILLA DELLE PALME is located in the heart of Casteldaccia, a quaint village on a Sicilian hill, two km from the sea and 20 min. easy drive to Palermo. The location offers a unique setting. Not isolated in the country, this villa is placed in the center of the town, melted among the town houses. You enter a portal and are placed in a magic intimate garden, while at the same time retain a taste of the local life, easy shopping and leisure walks.
Excellent is the local production of wine. Don’t forget to taste the world renown 'Corvo, Duca di Salaparuta'. Freeway connection, located 200 meters away, will allow you to quickly connect, explore and discover remote areas of the island.
