Overview

Palummara is a spacious villa in a wonderfully peaceful location, close to the sea and to several of the island’s leading cultural must-sees and one of the island’s top golf courses. With four en suite bedrooms and the option of daily cleaning and a cook service, the villa works really well for two families or a small group of friends.

Property

Cleverly designed to take advantage of its hilltop position, with its living space, and huge scenic terrace on the upper floor looking out to sea, this is a great place to unwind and recharge your batteries. The overall feel of the villa is airy, spacious and bright, with large double French windows or doors in all the rooms.

Outside: A gently sloping driveway leads to a covered parking space and from there, past a planted garden area and pool to a porch at the back of the house. The attractive pool area is partly shaded by trees and has a paved area with sun beds and an umbrella.

The high point of the villa is undoubtedly the large terrace at the front of the property which, from its elevated position, has unbeatable views over the countryside and towards the Mediterranean coast and is a great spot for those relaxing al fresco meals. A palm tree to one end of the terrace provides shade for a hammock, the perfect spot to while away leisurely hours and catch up on reading. A very well-equipped barbecue corner, with built in barbecue, wood-burning oven and work top space, is directly accessible from the terrace and provides a great alternative to cooking in the kitchen.

Other outdoor spaces include a second, smaller terrace, with equally breathtaking views, set just below the main terrace, and a covered porch with a table and chairs which is accessible from the living room at the back of the villa. On the opposite side of the villa to the barbecue area, steps lead past two outdoor showers (with hot and cold water) and a quiet, slightly out-of-the way gazebo with a coffee table and sofas, down to the entrance to the sleeping area.

Inside: As the villa is designed on a split-level, access to the living area on the upper floor is via the front terrace. Enter into a large living room with a dining area at the end nearest the terrace, and directly behind that, a well-equipped kitchen and a small utility washroom. A small staircase leads up to a mezzanine area comprising a snug reading corner and a sofa bed.

The bedrooms are on the lower floor and are accessed from a pathway down from the front terrace or via a staircase from the living room. There are four double en suite bedrooms, each with a different colour scheme, and a laundry room. All bedrooms have air-conditioning and all except one have a fantastic sea view, with one opening out on to the lower terrace.

Area

Local Sights

Palummara's location is perfect for enjoying the sandy beaches found in the area. Bovo Marina is the closest free beach to the villa, and you will find some restaurants and bars here where you can enjoy a bite to eat during your lazy days at the beach.

The beautiful Torre Salsa Nature Reserve is a must for those staying in this area. This gorgeous nature reserve is home to some lovely sandy beaches, beautiful natural scenery and great wildlife.

Sciacca is a nearby town with wonderful beaches close by. It is well known for its great seafood restaurants - serving incredibly fresh fish - and for its thermal springs.

Another charming spot to visit is Eraclea Minoa. This small village has a great beach - make your way to Lido Garibaldi if you want to rent sunloungers and umbrellas - and a picturesque archaeological site, with the remains of a Greek theatre with spectacular views out over the Mediterranean Sea. For a larger archaeological site, then visit the Valley of the Temples, near Agrigento.

One of Sicily's most unforgettable beaches is very close to Palummara and is the ideal destination for a relaxing day by the sea. With its impressive white cliffs plunging down into sparkling water, the Scala dei Turchi has the most beautiful setting.

 

Local Experiences

There's so much to do in the area surrounding Palummara that if you're looking for some fun adventures during your holiday in Sicily, you have certainly come to the right place.

Being so close to the sea, it makes sense to enjoy yourselves on the water as much as possible. Rent a boat for the day and discover unspoilt bays and beaches. There's also the opportunity to take part in some water sports activities in the area. Hire a kayak, have a go at windsurfing, SUP or sailing at some of the area's local water sports schools.

For fans of golf, one of Sicily's top golf courses is very close to Palummara. Play a round at the Roccoforte Verdura Golf Resort and regale your friends back home of the beautiful scenery that surrounds the course.

A guided tour of The Valley of the Temples - one of Sicily's top tourist destinations - is a great idea for anyone with an interest in Sicily's fascinating Greek past. With the ruins of seven temples to see, as well as an informative museum, the UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must!

For a night off from cooking, why not Book a Cook? Guests at Palummara can enjoy some delicious home-style cooking from a local chef, who will come to the villa and prepare a Sicilian feast. Food-lovers could also enjoy an in-villa cooking class where they can learn to cook delicious Sicilian dishes. For a real taste of Sicily, guests can also book an At Home with Sicilians meal: visit a real Sicilian home and enjoy an authentic meal cooked just for you!

Sciacca is most charming in spring and summer. Its beautiful harbour is a great place to buy some fantastic fresh fish to take home and enjoy at the villa. Or have lunch in one of the wonderful restaurants in the town, where the seafood is impeccable.

Extras

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

Road conditions and hire car suggestions: Countryside roads in Sicily are often unpaved and bumpy. For this reason we strongly suggest to rent a car with high ground clearance.

If you are planning to visit in low-season, the Almond Blossom Festival in February at Agrigento is a lovely local event, traditionally heralding the start of Spring.
