Holiday Rental House
The house is owned by my family since its founding in the late 800, divided into two autonomous and contiguous parts, one of which I live (Francis) and my partner Stefania. Surrounded by ancient olive groves and oak forests of oak and oak, caressed by the winds that mitigate the summer heat, is the ideal place for those seeking a relaxing holiday in contact with nature, hospitality simple, authentic and convivial. Excellent starting point for mountain hikes as refrigerants down to the sea. Me and my partner will be happy to share with you our knowledge of the area, our passions, and the fruits of our land. We speak English and a little French....The house is owned by my family since its founding in the late 800, divided into two autonomous and contiguous parts, one of which I live (Francis) and my partner Stefania.

Casa del Vento is part of the owner's house but with a separate entrance, sharing the patio area outside. Accommodation is basic but clean. Kitchen facilities small with rather random collection of utensils and glassware. Good location to get to the Madonie national park. Owners...More

About the neighbourhood
The house is located halfway between Scillato and the medieval village of Polizzi Generosa, full of squares and monuments that testify the history of this piece of Sicily, on the slopes of the "pan handle", a characteristic geological formation from which the name inside the Madonie Park. We are 10 minutes from the Palermo-Catania motorway, 10 minutes from Polizzi Generosa, 30 minutes from Cefalù, and a few tens of minutes from the other Madonie villages and from the paths that cross their beautiful landscape. And, for the lovers of climbing, we are less than 30 minutes from the cliffs of Caltavuturo and Scalfani with hundreds of studded streets of different difficulties, a must for those who want to discover the "vertical" Sicily
Getting around
The area is poorly served by public transport, for which we recommend to come by car or motorcycle.
