Set in a stunning hillside position above the coastal town of Cefalù, this bright and airy villa is a delight. From the pretty interior, the fabulous summer kitchen and pool area, to the far reaching views towards the sparking sea, La Palma has been designed with relaxed holiday living in mind, when days will languorously slip by in a haze of swimming in the pool, sunbathing on the terrace and dining outdoors.
With dining in mind, the summer kitchen comes equipped with a wood oven for barbecues and homemade pizzas. White walls and wicker chairs create a beach side feel, a theme continued indoors with the use of pale and sea blue colours, natural coloured wicker furniture and pale walls. Patio doors run the length of the living room and at one end, a picture window frames the pool area. Bedrooms are to the rear of the villa, with additional accommodation housed in an annexe, on the far side of the summer kitchen. Decorated in similar style to the main house, it is ideal accommodation for those seeking additional privacy (perhaps grandparents holidaying with family or older teenagers).
Visit historic Cefalù (10km) for a stroll around the old centre, where the cathedral dominates over the main square, from which narrow streets lead to the harbour and beach. Or take the train from Cefalù along the coast to Palermo, a melting pot of history and colour, where baroque buildings stand next to souk like markets. Take in its sights and sounds in the knowledge that La Palma, high on the hillside, awaits your return.
