In the hills above Palermo
This cozy, air-conditioned apartments with private pool is located on the ground floor of a 19th-century villa overlooking Palermo and the blue sea. Set in open countryside but at the same time close to town (15 minutes drive from the center of Palermo), Citronella is perfect for a relaxing holiday enjoying the peace of the pool and garden as well as exploring the attractions of Sicily.
Palermo has boulevards, ancient squares, open-air markets, churches, golden mosaics, and proximity to the sea and beaches. Day trips are possible to Monreale, Cefalù, Agrigento, Segesta, Marsala, Erice, Trapani, Enna, Piazza Armerina, and a variety of beaches; or just linger by the pool to relax and enjoy the garden and the views - a panorama of Palermo, Monte Pellegrino and the sea, as well as beautiful views from the terrace of the garden, with its specimen plantings. The hills above the villa offer great possibilities for hiking.
All facilities, including grocery, bar, bakery, pizzaria, are within a five minute drive downhill. Free parking is available for two cars; a car is required to stay here.
The very helpful English-speaking owner and her family live in the main villa upstairs. She will meet you on arrival. She teaches Art History and is a very special resource for information about what to see and do in the area. At the same time, she is conscientious about respecting her guests' privacy. She can also arrange a cooking class with a professional chef, one of the best in Palermo. Classes are held in the main villa, in the owner's beautiful, spacious, typical Sicilian kitchen. The owner will be on hand to help and to translate. Dinner is served on the main terrace or in the villa dining room, depending on the weather.
