"Villa Pantalica"


Villa Pantalica

The complex was designed by the illustrious architect Armò and built in 1930 by Domenico Paladino, of the same family which constructed the Palace of Ferdinando IV of Bourbon in Ficuzza. Its dominating feature is the tower, which adorns the imposing main body of the villa and dominates the crest of the stunning promontory between the gulfs of Palermo and Cefalù. Some Phoenician ruins and also the wonderful Greco-Roman Solùnto and its museum are to be found in this area, in the archaeological nature reserve which is partly on land and partly under water.

The area is characterised by an incredible exuberance of nature and a magnificent panorama. It embraces two gulfs and the luxuriant valleys of Bagheria and Santa Flavia with their beautiful C17th villas and the magnificent Basilica of Solunto. Any visitor would be stunned to see so much natural beauty and rich culture.

General renovation of the whole complex took place in may 2008. The surroundings of the flats are very beautiful. From your terrace at the house you have a delightful view over the gulf of Palermo and Termini and to the close mountains.  Besides the accommodation is tucked away in a garden with more than 50 botanical specimens, close to the seaside, the motorway and the railway station and just 9km from Palermo.

From march to octobre you can enjoy a bath in our swimming pool in the garden. It has a size of 11x5 m.

Although the appartments are situated close to the fishing village Santa Flavia we recommend to rent a car, since the next beaches in Porticello and Mongerbino are about 1 to 5 km away.
