This is a beautiful property and a great location -- all for a reasonable price. I do recommend it but with a few caveats. The good: it's outside Cefalu (about a 10 minute drive to the center of town). As wonderful as Cefalu is, its...More

The villa, 5 km from Cefalù, located within an area of outstanding naturalistic attractions, derives from an architectural complex built in the XIV century as a monastic center, until in 1868, Michele Palamara decides to buy it.The small village has a central courtyard overlooked by the chapel, the manor house and farm buildings now used for rural tourism, faithfully interpreting the philosophy of the place.The villa, 60 meters above the sea, with views of the Aeolian Islands, is a few minutes walking distance from the beach.Villa Palamara is ideal for relaxing stays and cultural tourism.
