It is just at the gates of Palermo (KM. 10).The Villa stands on a lush hill, emerging on the ridge of the wonderful promontory of Monte Catalfano, close to the Natural Reserve and the Archeological park of Solunto, the Phoenician and Greek - Roman city. The view of the sea embraces from Palermo to Cefalù until the high chain of Nebrodi and that over mountains reaches from Mount Pellegrino to the Natural Park of Madonie. You see also the hills, the rocky promontories and the green valleys of Bagheria and Santa Flavia. On these panoramic luxuriant hills of Bagheria you can admire a lot of beautiful eighteenth - century villas built by the best Sicilian nobility. The villa, planned by Armò, was erected in the beginning of the last century by Domenico Paladino, famous Florio's cousin and nephew of the builder of the Royal Hunting Palace of King Ferdinando IV Borbone at Ficuzza's wood (Palermo). It is the meeting's centre of the International Institute for Advanced Studies of Space Representation Sciences. Tourism is aimed at supporting the scientific research It is a fascinating and enchanting site, between history and nature, a very peaceful place dominating the gulfs of Palermo and Cefalu, where adults and children are enveloped in a dreaming and welcoming atmosphere and can enjoy and spend unforgettable holidays. It is a perfect place for anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing break thanks to the gorgeous setting with an incredible pool similar to a natural lake in the middle of a large Mediterranean garden rich in different species of birds (among them the superb Peregrine Falcon, so loved by Frederick II of Swabia, which nests on the Soluntine rocks) and countless species of plants. You also have great views down to Santa Flavia and the Gulfs of Palermo and Cefalù. You can admire spectacular sunsets on the sea sitting on the benches and the deck chairs around the pool or under the shadow of a big olive tree, close to a palm tree, while eating a sweet fig or a prickly pear just picked. The closest sandy beach is only met 1000 far from the Villa. Near the coast, the underwater Archaeological site of the Rock of the Ant. Boat trips with skipper in the clear waters around the Rock of the Ant, home of dolphins, up to the Aeolian Islands and fishing can be arranged in summer. 400 meters away you may visit the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing villages of Porticello and S.Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes. Approximately 1 Km. after S.Elia, driving along the quite panoramic coastal road, that flows around the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you’ll get the seafaring village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino with breath-taking views on the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino. This great place turns out to be a good starting point with easy access to motorway and manageable driving time to majority of attractions. In 30 minutes by car, you can easily reach Palermo and visit its precious monuments, its old town, the largest in Europe, where lie the spectacular markets, rich and fragrant, its museums and its major theaters. Don't forget to visit the well known beach resort of Mondello and the town of Monreale, with its Cathedral, the most beautiful and important in the world. At the same time you may easily get the famous medieval town of Cefalù, with its fantastic beach and the Arab-Norman Cathedral, or the enchanting Castle of Caccamo. Lastly, in a few minutes, you can visit the spectacular Madonie National Natural Park (mt.2000 level sea), the highest mountains in Sicily, after Etna, a paradise of rare plant and animal species protected. If you haven't a car, you can easily go sightseeing Palermo, Cefalù, and many other places thanks to the nearest train Station of Santa Flavia (mt. 400): trains leave each hour and are very cheap and convenient means of transport.

About the neighbourhood
The villa is adjacent to the Archaeological Park of Solunto and next to its Museum. Alongside is extending the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano and, near the coast, the underwater archaeological site of the Formica. 200 meters away you may visit the touristic village of Santa Flavia and the fishing villages of Porticello and S.Elia, where you can taste delicious Sicilian dishes. Approximately 1 Km. after S.Elia, driving along the quite panoramic coastal road, that flows around the Natural Reserve of Monte Catalfano, you’ll get the seafaring village of Aspra and the promontory of Mongerbino with its breath-taking views on the Gulf of Palermo and Monte Pellegrino. At the same distance you can admire the beautiful eighteenth - century villas, built by the best Sicilian nobility, on the ...
Getting around
If you hire a car, I have a large parking inside the villa. As the train station of S. Flavia is close by,you can easily go by train (20 minutes, E. 2,80/person) to Palermo and then go sightseeing Palermo, the well-known Duomo of Monreale and the lovely beach of Mondello by a red touristic bus (HOP ON-HOP OFF) that stops in the most important touristic places. You can easily go to Cefalù by train too. On the website trenitalia VIAGGIATRENO you can see the schedule times of trains. If you prefer, I can put at your disposal a taxi driver to go sightseeing Palermo and Sicily and for the transfer from the airport of Palermo / Catania and back.
