This charming one-bedroom holiday home is located in Corso Butera, and makes the ideal base for visitors who want to really immerse themselves in the history and culture of this charming city. The apartment, on the first floor of a historic townhouse, has been recently renovated and stylishly furnished.

Entry is into a hallway. To your right is a large living room with a practical kitchenette. Full length windows open onto a balcony, keeping the space bright and airy. Further on you come to a roomy double bedroom, which also offers a balcony. Both areas have air conditioning. Across the hallway is the bathroom, which is internal but with an effective extractor fan.

Casa Butera is ideally suited to two guests. If you’re a bigger group, however, a comfortable sofa bed can sleep another pair of visitors.

The location, on Corso Butera, is right at the heart of Bagheria. The road runs all the way from the seaside fishing village of Aspra by the sea right up to the magnificent baroque Palazzo Butera. There’s no better place to soak up the vibrant atmosphere of the town, as you stroll past the timeless old buildings until you reach the lively square in front of the church, where the whole community seems to gather to catch up on their daily news. All of Bagheria’s main attractions, including its other famous Baroque villas, are within easy walking distance.


Bagheria, Palermo’s ‘little sister’

A few kilometres to the east of Palermo, Bagheria has a depth and breadth of history to rival the great metropolis. Like Palermo, the last century saw the town caught up in a struggle with the mafia, and many of the memories are painfully fresh. But, just like Palermo, it is impossible to wander the streets of Bagheria without seeing evidence of the rebirth of this town, dubbed the ‘City of the Wind’ by its Arabian rulers one thousand years ago.

Truth be told, many of our guests are content with Bagheria’s certain ‘reputation’, because it does still keep mass-market tourism at bay. The town retains a local character while offering a perfectly convenient route into Palermo when they want to explore Italy’s fifth largest city.

The railway station in town is a stop for practically every train running to Palermo, and so with no hassle or fuss, you can be in the historic centre of Palermo at any hour of the day. Travellers staying with us in Bagheria have told us it’s their favourite way to make the most of a short holiday without staying in the city.

But in truth, Bagheria is so much more than a mere base camp for visiting Palermo.

Bagheria’s culinary scene operates on a stellar level. Literally, in the case of Michelin-starred eateries I Pupi and Līmū, but also in a less auspicious way behind the doors of dozens of fabulous traditional osterias, trattorias and pizzerias. You could say you’ll be up to your ears in great food!

So a second look at Bagheria reveals so much more than first meets the eye. As well as the culinary temptations, the cultural and fashion scene here is of course much smaller than Palermo’s, but every bit as creative and lively. Check out beautifully-decorated restaurant Bitta, and boutique indie fashion house Filly Biz, to name just a couple of examples.

Students of history won’t be surprised to discover modern Bagheria’s creative streak. The town is the birthplace of internationally renowned artists such as the painter Renato Guttuso, Oscar-winning director Giuseppe Tornatore and Magnum photographer Ferdinando Scianna.

Our guests can admire Guttuso originals hanging on the walls of the beautiful Villa Cattolica, while Scianna’s photographs are on display in the Museum of Bagheria. Tornatore dedicated the film Baaria to his hometown.

Staying in Bagheria means all the shops and amenities you’d find in Palermo, from grocers to pharmacies. We recommend investigating the excellent organic food shop Lenticchia.

In short, Bagheria is a surprising yet practical little market town that needs a second look to be truly appreciated. So why not come along and see for yourself?
