Holiday Rental House
Villa del Glicine is an old country residence settled at 'Oasi delle Salinelle', an estate of 26,000 sqm, a large and secret garden paradise containing groves of olive, and many others trees. It is located about just 6 km from the historic centre of the charming, age-old Norman town of Cefalu, and combines the natural scenic beauty and peacefulness of the countryside with direct access to the sea. The Villa is very quiet and peaceful for most of the year, although in the summertime the beach attracts many visitors for its natural beauty, its soft sands and its safe bathing: this is Salinelle beach, among the most scenically beautiful of Cefalu. The area offers markets, pizzerias, restaurants, pubs, beach lidos, to mention just a few of the offerings available, all is at walking distance...Villa del Glicine is an old country residence settled at 'Oasi delle Salinelle', an estate of 26,000 sqm, a large and secret garden paradise containing groves of olive, and many others trees.

I'm Dario Livecchi and I live in the same estate where is located Villa del Glicine. I will be very happy to let your holiday an unforgettable experience and I will do my best to satisfy all your needs. This is a magic place, a true original Sicilian property, not a touristic residence or just an holiday house, you will feel at home and you will surely come back again, before or later :)

About the neighbourhood
Just one hour's drive east of Palermo, sitting serenely between its natural bay and the towering rocky granite mass of La Rocca, is Cefalù. For a small town, Cefalù offers a great deal, including sandy beaches, winding Mediaeval streets flanked with all manner of shops, excellent restaurants serving the freshest of fish and last but probably first, its unique Norman cathedral. An ascent of La Rocca presents quite a challenge (especially in the hot summer months) but is an absolute must: the views are spectacular, while the walls of the old Saracen stronghold and the remains of a Temple of Diana (which supposedly dates back to Sicanian-Greek times) are of no little interest.
Getting around
Directly south of Cefalù is the wonderful Madonie National Park with its charming villages and towns, such as Castelbuono, its delightful scenery, its impressive mountains and some wonderful walking. It is no coincidence then, that after Taormina and Palermo, Cefalù is probably the most popular tourist town in Sicily, offering, as it does, something for everyone.
