Overview

A stylish, contemporary villa with exceptional views out to sea. You'll feel at peace as soon as you arrive! Gaze out over the view, enjoy the tranquillity of the area, luxuriate in the high-quality furnishings and feel your cares disappear! With a lovely swimming pool and charming internal and external space, you, your family, and loved ones can really enjoy a Sicilian holiday at this villa!

Property

Outside: La Balata has charming outdoor space with unforgettable views! The swimming pool is surrounded by sunloungers, sun umbrellas, and a seating area. Next to the villa is a stylish veranda with outdoor sofas and a dining table. This is the perfect place to enjoy al fresco meals and to take in the mesmerising views. There is also a wonderful brick barbecue where you can cook up a storm on a daily basis! There is also a terrace on the first floor furnished with sofas and sunloungers where you can relax and look out to the sea.

Inside: The villa has a relaxed but stylish feel with high-quality furnishings and decorations found throughout offering the utmost comfort. The ground floor has a beautiful open-plan living area with floor to ceiling windows that look out over the terrace and out to sea. There is a comfy sitting area, a dining table and a modern kitchen with all the equipment you could need. On the ground floor there is also one double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom which has direct access to the garden via French windows.

A staircase takes you up to the first floor where there are three further bedrooms. A double bedroom (can be converted to twin beds) has its own ensuite bedroom and access to a terrace with sea views. There is also a twin room with ensuite bathroom that also leads directly to the terrace. A further double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower is also on this level. All bedrooms are bright, welcoming and comfortable.

Local Sights

La Balata is wonderfully positioned to explore north Sicily. Cefalù is one of Sicily's most popular seaside towns and it is clear to see why. The town centre is utterly charming with narrow streets, lovely shops, restaurants and bars. The cathedral is an incredible example of Arab-Norman architecture. The sandy beach is blissful and perfect for a day by the sea!

There are plenty of other beaches to visit in the area. Spend the day at Mazzaforno. This lovely beach is fairly small so we recommend getting there early! You could also take a trip to Finale di Pollina, a quiet beach that is made for relaxation!

The Madonie Mountains are close to the villa. These mountains are a haven of beautiful flora and fauna and have many tracks that are great for hiking. You can also visit pretty hilltop towns like Castelbuono which is famed for its great restaurants.
Palermo is not too far away and is a great destination for a day trip. Sicily's capital city is an atmospheric place full of vibrant characters, great food and stunning architecture. Take a trip and see what Sicilian city life is like!


Local Experiences

There's a wealth of fun local experiences that can really enhance your time in Sicily. A boat trip along the coast is a wonderful way to see the sights and enjoy the sunshine. You'll be able to swim in crystal clear water and enjoy the warm sea breeze. A great day out for all the family!

Foodies will be thrilled with Sicilian gastronomy and wine. You could organise a cook service in your villa for an authentic taste of Sicilian food in the comfort of your own home. Or organise a cookery lesson in Palermo. You could also visit a local winery where you can see the vines, visit the cellars and taste the final products!

Another great option is a Street Food Tour in Palermo. This is a wonderful way to sample many of Palermo's famous specialities and see the beautiful historic centre and markets of this fascinating city.

Extras

The heated pool is open to guests from 4th April to 24th October.
