Our very authentic holiday letting Casa Olivia in the heart of Porticello and near the sea has been recently renovated and furnished very comfortably. This apartment is a large, open loft on the second floor of a typical fisherman’s house, which is divided into two levels.
On the first floor there is the large, bright living area with balcony, a fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with window and large shower. In the lovingly decorated living room there is a 160 cm wide double sofa bed and a dining area. From the balcony you can catch a glimpse of the nearby and famous port of Porticello. The sleeping area, accessible via a beautiful wooden staircase and the gallery, offers not only a work station but also 2 double beds, each 140 cm wide.
The village´s beaches are approx. 500 m away and the train station in Santa Flavia (800 m) with direct connection to Palermo and Cefalu or to the airport is within walking distance, there are traditional shopping opportunities directly in front of the door (traveling dealers) or at the supermarket, fruit and vegetable stores, pharmacists and at the bakery just around the corner. The location is undoubtedly a key benefit of this structure.
Like all of our apartments, “Casa Olivia” has been renovated and furnished with great care.
Porticello – Experience the tradition of a Sicilian fishing village
Porticello is a small community just east of Palermo, directly on the sea. As you would expect from its picturesque location, the harbour is the beating heart of Porticello. All day long you’ll find fishermen setting out in search of the day’s catch, ferrying their precious cargo to the quayside fish market and taking time to tend to their nets. All the while colourful fishing boats and small fishing boats bob and sway like tiny rays of sunlight reflected on the gentle waves.
The locals are very proud of their fishing heritage. As you can imagine, you’ll never be stuck for a new fish restaurant to try, with the endless variety of their seafood platters. Or perhaps you’d prefer to buy your own in the timeless market and try your hand at preparing it like a true local.
The village radiates charm, but you’ll find the evening atmosphere livelier than you might expect, thanks to the presence of several popular bars and pubs. Watch the sun go down with a seafront aperitivo, or simply soak up the sights and sounds as you stroll along the picturesque harbourfront promenade.
The small beach, a real local secret, is only 700 metres away. The crystal clear water will plead with you to take a refreshing dip, at any time of the day and very nearly any time of the year.
Close at hand, the nature reserve of Monte Catalfano and the archaeological site of Solunto are your gateway to the natural and historical treasures of the region.
The railway station of Santa Flavia-Solunto-Porticello is just over a kilometre away. Trains from here will bring you to the centre of Palermo in just 20 minutes.
