The 5 suites (3 threeroom and 2 tworoom) of Villa Paladino, smartly standing on the ridge of a lush hill, with the ancient marble fountain full of water arum and water lily embellishing the whole, create a wonderful and amazing atmosphere in the exuberance of a nature lady of the site, full of different species of birds (we are close to Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano) in which the majestic peregrine falcon, and full of innumerable species of plants too. You see all this in a place between history and legend, that, embracing two gulfs and overlooking the green hills of Bagheria with the well-known eighteenth century villas and the Basilica Soluntina, leaves everybody breathless in front to so great natural and cultural treasures. You can look at spectacular sunsets on the sea sitting on the benches and deck chairs around the wonderful pool similar to a natural lake in the middle of a large Mediterranean garden. You can also look at the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino too ('The most beautiful promontory of the world', said Goethe, the well known German poet who came in Sicily in 19th century) while swimming in the pool or looking out of the windows of your bedroom. Villa is close to the Archaeological Park of Solunto and its Museum. The close Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano is a paradise for nature walks. Along the coast, the underwater archaeological site of Ant is an attraction for people who enjoy diving. Boat trips with skipper in the clear waters around the Rock of the Ant, home of dolphins, up to the Eolian Islands and fishing can be arranged in summer. 300 meters away you may go sightseeing the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing touristic villages of Porticello and Sant'Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes, Sicilian wines, well-known typical cakes and cheeses, together with a lot of ancient local gastronomic specialties too. About 1 Km. away, driving along the quite panoramic coast road that goes past Sant'Elia and the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you'll get the maritime village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino, from which you can admire a breath-taking view on the gulf of Palermo and on Monte Pellegrino. At the same distance you can admire the beautiful eighteenth century villas built by the best Sicilian nobility on the panoramic luxuriant hills of Bagheria. 300 metersfar from the Villa, the station of Santa Flavia allows you to take one of the trains going to Palermo or Cefalù. Train start each hour and takes only 15 minutes to get to Palermo. Euro 2,50 / person. In 30 minutes by car you can easily get to Palermo and go sightseeing the precious monuments, the historic center, that is the biggest in Europe, where spectacular, endless, full of goods and sweet-smelling open-air markets take place, the museums and the important theaters. Don't forget to go sightseeing the well known lido of Mondello and the town of Monreale, with the most beautiful and important Cathedral in the world too. In the same time you can also get to the well known touristic medieval town of Cefalù, with its marvelous beach and the Arab-Norman Cathedral, or to the enchanting Castle of Caccamo. Adding a few minutes, without never losing the view of the sea, you can reach the spectacular National Natural Madonie Park (mt.2000 on the sea), the highest mountain chain in Sicily after Etna and the paradise of rare protected animal and vegetables species. You'll be enchanted by sunny Sicily, its nature, its sky and sea, its culture, its food and wine, its colors and smells, its people... More
