Villas in north Sicily

Tyrrhenian CoastThe stretch of coast between Palermo and Milazzo is an almost unbroken line of resorts, beaches and little towns pretty much entirely given over to the Italian tourist industry. Between June and September the well-worn roads carry a steady stream of holiday makers to and from the coastline’s manifold attractions. The best of these is the pretty town of Cefalù which, though advertising itself as a traditional fishing village, has developed into a resort second only to Taormina in popularity.

Bit the north coast has an accessible and intriguing interior, home to two massive natural parks dotted with tiny mountain villages far removed from the flip-flop-scuffed boardwalks of the cost. Encompassing the Madonie and Nebrodi Mountains, the parks are a haven for naturalists, bird-watchers and walkers - cool, green, pretty and spectacular. The Nebrodi Mountains are the largest area of forest to survive on the island and are also the most remote, physically and psychologically.

East of Cefalù are the coast’s best beaches: clean, unpolluted and relatively uncrowded, especially around Capo d’Orlando and the location of the gorgeously sited ruins of Tyndaris, Capo Tindari. Right at the end of the road is much-maligned Milazzo with its apocalyptic power station - often overlooked, but hiding some lovely unspoilt coastline along its narrow isthmus.
