Villa Edera is an historic Art Nouveau home in the centre of the seaside village of Porticello, a little way outside Palermo on Sicily’s north coast. Its large panoramic terraces enjoy breathtaking sea views and it is topped by a tower which serves as a reading room.
The huge villa has 6 double bedrooms, spread over three floors, each of which is equipped with air conditioning, heating and an en-suite bathroom. One room has been adapted to cater for guests with reduced mobility. From all rooms there are magnificent panoramic views.
A large living room on the ground floor hosts breakfast in the morning, or if you prefer we’d be delighted to serve it on the large outdoor terrace – what better way to start the day? During the day the breakfast room can be used as a study or work room. A workstation is available with a pair of high-speed PCs for guests’ use.
Situated in the historic old town of Porticello, Villa Edera offers the perfect base from which to take in the traditions and laid-back rhythms of life in an untouched Sicilian fishing village.
Looking further afield, the location is a great base from which to explore the nearby town of Bagheria, known as the ‘city of villas’, where you can visit the fascinating Villa Cattolica, home of the Guttuso Museum, and Villa Palagonia, the famous villa of monsters.
Porticello is a ‘frazione’ of the small town of Santa Flavia, whose railway station is just 500 m from Villa Edera. From here you can reach Sicily’s magnificent medieval capital city of Palermo in 15 minutes. Or why not take a trip further along the coast? The picture-postcard seaside town of Cefalù can be reached in a little over half an hour.
Villa Edera is committed to environmental and ecological responsibility and follows eco-sustainable, plastic free guidelines.
