Overview

In a fantastic coastal location between Palermo and Cefalù, Oro Blu is ideal for a family or several couples looking to share, featuring lovely outdoor spaces and a fabulous pool area. With well-manicured lawns, sheltered ‘al fresco’ eating spots, a large covered patio and endless sea views, this villa is all about outdoor living at its very best.

Property

Set in a residential area on a hillside with stunning views of the bay that surrounds the pretty seaside village of Trabia, the villa looks directly out over the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Outside: At the main entrance to the villa, a large covered patio, furnished with a very attractive dining-table and chairs, a built-in barbecue and another smaller coffee table with comfortable seating, overlooks the lawn. A small water feature sits at the foot of the stairs to the patio.

The pool area is set behind the villa, walled on one side for shade and added privacy, with plenty of sun beds and a fantastic chromatic shower. A glass-fronted decked area, furnished with table and chairs and a large umbrella, provides a tremendous viewing point of the coastline and is the ultimate spot for al fresco lunches. The recently-built pool has a hydro-massage system and is surrounded by decking and beyond that, a well-kept lawn.

Inside: Access to the villa is up a few steps, via the covered patio, and directly into the living room which has comfortable sofas at one end and a separate dining-area with a dining table and chairs, a dark wooden sideboard and open fireplace. A compact but well-equipped kitchen leads directly off the dining-area. The first of the three double bedrooms is on the ground floor, with French windows that lead out to the rear part of the main patio, slightly screened by planted shrubs, and with a small table and chairs – perfect for a peaceful early morning coffee! Next door to the bedroom is a bathroom with shower.

Stairs lead from the living-room to the first floor where there are two double bedrooms, each with French windows on to terraces, one with views of the bay and the other overlooking the pool area. One double bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with shower; the second has a bathroom with bath and shower next door.

Local Sights

Trabia is Oro Blu's closest town and is a sweet little place with all that you could need to get your holiday started. The town's coastline is charming and the nearest beach - at San Nicola l'Arena - is only a ten minute drive away.

Along the coast to the east you will find the seaside town of Cefalù. As one of Sicily's top summer destinations, Cefalù is a great place to visit. You will enjoy a charming town centre with a fantastic cathedral and quaint streets. Its beach is lovely and there are many pretty boutiques and great restaurants.

Palermo is west of Trabia. The bustling and vivacious capital of Sicily is a fascinating place to visit. Blessed with extraordinary buildings, fantastic (street) food culture, wonderful churches and museums and a relentless energy, Palermo is a place to be seen to be believed.

The hill-top town of Monreale, found just outside of Palermo, should also not be missed. Famous for its cathedral with its unforgettable series of mosaics, Monreale should be visited by all those with an interest in Sicily's artistic past.

There are many super beaches in the area. Mondello is the Palermitan's favourite: a long stretch of sand with clear water with many fun bars and restaurants. It is the ideal place to soak up some sun and relax like a true Sicilian.

The Madonie Mountains are an oasis of cool, natural beauty with some charming hill-top towns and fantastic trails and paths to discover.

 

Local Experiences

There's lots to see and do near Oro Blu, and the area is well worth exploring. The villa is superbly placed to enjoy local beaches, like Salinelle, and eating out without taking the car is easy at the nearby bar & pizzeria. Be sure to eat some pasta at one of Trabia's seafront restaurants. Many claim that pasta originates from this town!

Head west to explore Bagheria. You'll find sumptuous Baroque villas throughout the town, and you should not leave without trying the famous focaccia with ricotta at the Antica Focacceria. It's delicious!

Visiting Palermo is a must. Famous for its gastronomy - especially its street food and markets - and great way to get to know the city is taking a street food or market tour. Led by an expert guide you will learn about Palermo's fascinating history and culture through its fantastic food!

If you still can't get enough of the fabulous Sicilian cuisine then take part in one of our great cooking experiences. Choose from a cookery class in the villa or at a local culinary school, or book a private chef and enjoy a fantastic Sicilian meal prepared at your villa.

For something more energetic, there are many opportunities for fun outdoor activities in the Madonie Mountains, such as horse riding and hiking. There are also lots of opportunities for water sports in the area. Enjoy a boat trip along the north coast between Palermo and Trabia and discover some of Sicily's lesser known bays. Or head to Mondello beach and enjoy a day's kayaking, sailing or windsurfing. Take to the sea for a fun boat trip or private yacht rental. Discover secret bays and coves, enjoy the incredibly clear waters and relax as a qualified captain takes you to the best spots along the north coast.

Extras

The pool is open to guests from April 28th to October 27th.

The property is a semi-detached villa with an independent entrance, garden and private pool. The neighbours in the next door villa - who are very quiet and discreet - are present only in August, but this should not impact your complete privacy and enjoyment of the property.
