What a wonderful host Marida is, she is so kind and always at your disposal, without being intrusive. We arrived very late at night after our flight was delayed, she had hot pizzas and cold beers waiting for us. The clean accommodation is all you need for a pleasant stay. There were 4 adults and a 6months old baby in our group. The beds were very comfy the air con a bonus as it was very hot, constant hot water, the villa has its own private terrace with table and chairs. High chair and cot for the baby. The pool is so lovely surrounded by plants and flowers, sun beds are good quality, there is a large barbecue area with stunning views.
Marida arranged our airport transfers with Enzo a lovely gentleman, she arranged car hire for us from a local firm in Castledaccia, which was excellent, they pick you up take you to their office to sort paper work, lovely people, then they collect the car from the villa when you have finished with it, stress free, Wonderful!
We walked into Santa Flavia, or Porticello most evening to eat or drink, 10 minutes to Santa Flavia, 20 minutes to Porticello my husband and I are 72 and found the walk easy.
We visited some beautiful places on the coast and up into the mountains, went to Palermo by train, met some lovely people from the other villas,
The local people are very warm and friendly and our 6months old Granddaughter was welcomed in the best restaurants.
We loved having a drink and snacks in the Babalonia Pub next to Santa Flavia station, lovely staff and spotlessly clean, the butchers two doors up from there next to the pharmacy sold excellent barbecue meats. Can Caus restaurant fabulous.
Thank you Marida for sharing your little bit of paradise.
Lovely peaceful tranquil location with easy access into the town. Each villa has its own terrace and is quite private. The pool area is lovely with comfy sun loungers, again easy enough to find a private/quiet spot if required. The villas are spacious and nicely laid out with lots of space. Very comfortable bed. A secure property with gated entrance, the elevated position makes for some fabulous views. The owners Marida and Giuseppe are very friendly and helpful, offering lots of suggestions for places to visit, eat and shop. Santa Flavia and Porticello are within walking distance (10-25 mins). We had a hire car which made it easy to visit places a bit further afield but there is good public transport if preferred.
We had a great 10 days here and would love to return.
We spent a brilliant 8 days at the Villa Paladino Solunto in September. The villa was easy to find and our host, Marida, was an absolute delight and very helpful. We stayed in the Manderino suite and it was more than comfortable for 4 adults with the benefit of a great terrace; the beds were comfortable, the air con was great and kitchen fairly well equipped.
The pool was just as good and we were happy to spend lazy afternoons around the pool after an exhausting morning playing in the Palermo traffic!
Would have no hesitation in returning again or recommending to our friends. Thank you Marida.
Beautiful apartment and pool in a wonderfully quiet location. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Marida made us feel really welcome and was very helpful. The local town is pleasant and untouristy. We managed without a car and day tripped along the coast by train, but a car would have been helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Paladino Solunto, our accommodation was spacious and comfortable though we struggled a little with the 2-ring cooking facilities. The pool area was lovely and the location had great views. Marida and her husband were very kind, friendly and warm and extremely helpful.
The villa is within a walk of the nearest small town Santa Flavia from which you can get a train to nearby Palermo as well as the coastal resort of Cefalu which is worth visiting.
We would certainly recommend this spot for a holiday.
