Capo Zafferano – Paradise where sea meets mountain
Capo Zafferano is a rocky outcrop that juts boldly into the Gulf of Palermo. A botanical treasure rich with all manner of species of Mediterranean plant, it is a magnet for seagulls, and also for Sicilian holidaymakers enjoying the endless hours of sunshine from one of the area’s spacious villas.
In the morning, the sun rising over the Gulf of Termini Imerese bathes Capo Zafferano in a warm light. As it sets in the evening, over the Gulf of Palermo, it ignites the land, sea and sky in an explosion of breathtaking colours and unforgettable views!
Whether you choose to make the most of the Mediterranean sun with activity or relaxation, you will have a stunning natural backdrop. A pair of beautiful beaches and the Monte Catalfano nature reserve are all within easy reach. The archaeological site of Solunto is a few kilometres away.
Capo Zafferano stands within the district of Sant’Elia, a fascinating and gloriously traditional Sicilian fishing village. Its picturesque coves, small beaches and a rocky hinterland will bring to mind the Côte d’Azur – but in some blissful bygone age or parallel universe where the Côte d’Azur was still completely untouched by mass tourism. This is where the savvy Sicilians come to get away from both the heat of the city in summer – and the visiting crowds!
Thanks to this, Sant’Elia is home to plenty of beach bars, restaurants and everything you need for a completely satisfying holiday.
The railway station in nearby Bagheria will bring you to the centre of Palermo in less than 20 minutes. Just four kilometres away from Capo Zafferano, the station is served by almost every train running to and from Palermo, giving you freedom to explore the city at your own pace.
