Villa Description

Holiday-makers have been renting the house since the summer of 2008 and the guestbook is full of enthusiastic reviews of people who have loved it. You won't be disappointed.

The house has been completely redesigned and reconstructed by a talented local architect using local materials and techniques. It combines modern convenience and environmental awareness and is situated in one of the most desirable areas of the Madonie. Located on the slopes of Mount San Salvatore near the medieval Polizzi Generosa in the heart of the Madonie National Park. The house offers spectacular views of the town sitting up on the hilltop, the mountains and the valley itself. Spring water from the nearby underground source runs along canals through the one hectare property. It is also used to fill the natural, stone pool which you will be able to enjoy on warm days.
Ancient oak and hazelnut trees surround the house and the beautiful lawn at the front is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal, a drink or a good book. There is also another shady eating area next to the pool.

A foot bridge takes you to the other side of the stream where you'll be able to see the magnificent stone wall that was once part of the flour mill. There are a dozen of these mills in the area which are of great interest due to the fact that they were water generated.

In the main part of the house on the ground floor there is a spacious dining area, sitting room with an iron wood burner, well-equipped kitchen, master bedroom, single bedroom, main bathroom and WC. All the rooms are tastefully furnished, both stylish but down to earth and the high ceilings give the house a light and airy feel. An outdoor staircase leads to a small, independent apartment with its own terrace and bathroom. Ideal for a second couple or teenagers who like their privacy.
