Overview

The Sicilian dream ... wander down to the sea for an early morning dip, then pop back to the villa for a steam or sauna before indulging in a leisurely breakfast on the terrace, overlooking the sea. Combine beach life with exploring some of Sicily’s greatest attractions from the base of this fantastic villa with its own private spa.

Property

Outside: Surrounded by a lovely landscaped garden, with terraces and several shady furnished sitting areas, Lory is located in the seaside village of Casteldaccia. The garden slopes down to a wonderful beach - it is just one step through the garden gate!

Inside: The villa is built on three levels, with the main entrance (on the middle level) leading in to a bright airy living area with huge picture windows on two sides. A dining area, with table and chairs, at one side of the room, sits in front of floor-to-ceiling glass doors that lead out to a large balcony with incredible panoramic views as far away as the Madonie Mountains. On the same floor, there is a fully fitted kitchen, a utility room, a guest bathroom and a comfortable double bedroom with en suite bathroom with bath.

An internal staircase leads from the living area up to four en suite bedrooms (two double and two twins which can be converted into a double), all with 22-inch TVs, on the first floor. Two of the double bedrooms have their own balconies - with panoramic sea views - which are accessible via floor-to-ceiling glass doors. A second living room on this floor also leads out to a large balcony.

The pièce de résistance of this villa is the extraordinary spa on the lower level. Occupying the whole floor, there is a steam room and a wonderful jacuzzi that does not have a heating function. Chill out in the jacuzzi, then step straight out to a covered patio - the perfect spot for a glass of wine from one of the nearby wineries of Corvo or Duca Salaparuta! There is also a guest bathroom and a laundry room found on this floor.

Local Sights

Lory is fantastically positioned in north Sicily. Casteldaccia, the villa's nearest town, is found just outside of Palermo and has all that you could need as a base for your holiday.

With the villa found directly on the beach, you are sure to spend hours relaxing and having fun on the sand. The beach in front of the villa is free, but just a few steps away there is a managed lido (Rihab Lido), with sun beds, umbrellas, a beach bar and restaurant.

Lory is close to Palermo, Sicily's exciting capital city. Palermo is a super place to visit: outstanding food, great galleries and museums, extraordinary architecture and a fun and thrilling atmosphere.

Mondello is one of Palermo's neighbouring towns and is the beach of choice for many Palermitans. With a great range of bars and restaurants as well as its superb white sandy beach, Mondello is a good day trip destination. Rent sunloungers at one of the many lidos for a relaxing day by the sea.

Explore the less touristy coast between Casteldaccia and Palermo, with its lovely seaside villages Porticello and S. Elia, or head to the town of Bagheria, the home-town of the Sicilian painter Guttuso - visit the Museo Guttuso to learn more. Be amazed by the Baroque splendour of the architecture in the town. Palermo's aristocracy traditionally kept their summer residences here, and some of these can be visited today. You should also taste some great traditional dishes at one of the many authentic trattorias.

Just outside of Palermo is the hill-top town of Monreale, with its outstanding cathedral and beautiful views over the valley below. The golden mosaics in the cathedral are wonderful and you can enjoy unique views over Palermo from the belvedere.

At only half an hour from the villa, Cefalù is a top holiday destination for many during the summer. Home to a spectacular cathedral, charming pedestrianised streets, lovely shops and a great beach, Cefalù is a excellent place to spend the day.

Away from the coast the mountains begin to rise. These are the Madonie Mountains, now a nature reserve, and home to a wonderful range of flora and fauna as well as tracks and trails to enjoy. Visit some of its characteristic towns such as Petralia Soprana for an authentic Sicilian atmosphere and genuine food.


Local Experiences

Lory is set up to ensure that you have a luxurious and relaxed break in Sicily. Make the most of the spa facilities found in the villa and completely unwind and de-stress.

With its seafront location, you will certainly want to spend as much time as possible by the water. Why not book a boat trip to get to know Sicily's coastline and islands.Enjoy trips to locations such as Alicudi, Mondello or San Vito Lo Capo. Other boating experiences such as fishing trips can also easily be arranged.

For those who like their adventures with solid ground under their feet, there are many exciting trips and treks that we can arrange to take place in the Madonie or Nebrodi Mountain ranges. Whether you're interested in hiking, horse riding or cycling, there is bound to be something that catches your eye.

Take a break from cooking and Book a Cook. Choose from a gourmet or home-style menu and a talented chef will come to the villa and prepare everything for you. Expect delicious fresh, seasonal ingredients full of wonderful flavour! We could also arrange a talented chef to come to the villa and hold a cookery lesson, teaching you the tricks of the trade of Sicilian cooking.

Stroll through the vibrant food markets in Palermo and soak up the atmosphere during a Street Food Tour. These tours are a wonderful way to get to know Palermo and its famed street food. Taste the specialities, meet the locals and spend and entertaining and delicious few hours in the city.

Extras

There is a private gate that leads directly to the beach.
During the high season (August) the beach could be crowded, especially on the night of August 14, when it may be unusually busy as Sicilians celebrate Ferragosto, a big national holiday, with music, bonfires and parties.

Sun beds and sunshades will be available for the villa's guests at no extra charge.

The closest lido to the villa is found just outside the property on the beach. This lido - Rihab Lido - has a restaurant, bar, sunloungers and umbrellas, and is open from mid-June until mid-September.
