The vacation rental has all mod cons, including much needed airconditioning in the hot summer months. Smack in the middle of the town of Toretta, you become part of the daily life of the locals. A wonderful bar with the best ricotta-filled breakfast pastries is just around the corner. The town also boasts a very good pizzeria. We came to this village looking for relatives of my husband whose grandparents were born in Toretta and later left for the USA. We found the locals to be very helpful and open towards us (leading us from one person to the next who still might remember or still know somebody connected to the family). If you want to experience life in the mountains around Palermo, this is the place to be. All this was also made possible by our wonderful hosts Franco and Patrizia who were very helpful and accommodating. We found ourselves a few nights going to their bar to ask for additional info (which beach, restaurant do you recommend?.....) or to just chat. Going to casa Cipriana is an experience in itself. We know we will come back!! The LoPiccolo family from Belgium
During our visit to Sicily, we stayed in Torretta, a traditional, small and beautiful typical Sicilian village located not too far from Palermo, with easy access to the airport and beaches. The apartment is centrally located in the village, near to shops, amenities, restaurants and bars but far enough to still be peaceful. It has a unique mixture of traditional and modern styles. It was very clean, maintained to the highest of standards and it contained all of the necessary appliances. The rooms were spacious and split onto different levels.The balcony offers a beautiful view and the opportunity to sit in the afternoon sun. I would stay here again and recommend this apartment for any prospective tourists or those wishing to visit for longer. Francesco and Patricia are the perfect hosts and went out of their way to make us feel welcome; giving us lots of advice and information on what to do, Where to eat and anything we needed making us at all times feel extremely welcome and comfortable. This really is the perfect place to stay and we cannot wait for our next visit!
