Alternatively, cosy up in a countryside getaway that blends ancient twisted olive trees with sophisticated open plan living. All our luxury villas in Cefalu and Palermo offer modern comforts with a distinct dash of Sicilian style.

About Cefalu & Palermo

At the heart of Palermo’s ancient city stands the impressive 12th-century cathedral. Keen historians should definitely take a turn within its grand walls. Inside you’ll find vast royal tombs and decorative work that’s certainly worthy of a snap or two.

Culture vultures should head to the neoclassical Teatro Massimo. The boards of this grand stage have been graced by some of the world’s greatest opera singers. Let us book you a ticket and you can enjoy front row seats. Sicily’s capital is also packed with museums and busy street markets. Pick up some classic local cuisine, such as rice balls or chickpea polenta. Sicilian food is perfect for dining al fresco in your villa as you shade from the summer heat.

Beyond Palermo’s energetic and bustling streets, the rest of the island offers relaxation under the Sicilian sun. If you like your getaways on the quieter side, exchange the excitement of Palermo for the picturesque beauty of Cefalu. Just an hour from the capital, this pretty medieval fishing town is like stepping back in time. Cobbled streets, long sandy beaches and beautiful churches: some of our luxury villas in Cefalu and Palermo are located right on the doorstep of this overload of charm.

Explore Cefalu’s fishing boats and harbour side in the early evening and you’ll be treated to a truly majestic sunset. Once you’re sitting back with a glass of Italian red, you’ll understand the Sicilian chill.
