Description from owner

Description

How do you fall in love with Sicily? Travel there and stay at Casa al Bragone, an amazing country house set in a magnificent landscape of rolling green hills above the blue sea.

Live in Casa al Bragone to discover the inherent romance of Sicily, this wonderful Mediterranean island with rich history, unique local culture, delicious food and lovely people.

Go to the beach in two minutes on foot from the house and swim in the peaceful and inviting sea of the near little bay and let children play with sand or little stones, while you are reading your preferred book under the sun.

Taste great food and really good wine in the local restaurants or cook together with the owners a Sicilian traditional dish (one free cooking class!).

Your holiday will be unique, interesting and memorable!

Casa al Bragone is a lovely Villa, built in 1850 as country house and recently restored to host guests from all over the world.

Families, artists and writers, just married couples and tourists who looks for peace and beauty or for their ancestral roots have been our best guests in these years and we are happy to have met them.

Rent the appartment on the ground floor, with an internal patio and a terrace in the garden at the back of the house.

There is a large and bright living room with original ancient forniture, a study with a lot of interesting books, a new full equipped kitchen with dish washer, oven, refrigerator and fridge. There are more dining areas: one in the living room, one in the kitchen and one outdoors in the garden, where there is a barbecue too.

The main bedroom has got a double bed and a balcony into the internal patio, an other one two single beds and the third bedroom has got bunk beds. High quality bed linen are provided such as towels with no extra costs.

There is a bathroom with bath and shower, a second one with shower and washing machine.

Palermo, the regional capital of Sicily, Cefalù, Termini Imerese, Caccamo and the mountaintop villages of Madonie are a must for any Sicily enthusiast and they are few kilometers from the house.

The major station to see the sights is in Termini Imerese, 5 minutes by car from the house. From there you can reach all most important and well known places in Sicily. In front of the rail station you can also find a lot of buses to go to the villages and little towns nearby. There is another rail station in Trabia, 5 minutes walking from the house. From there you can take local trains to Palermo and Cefalù. It's possible to rent a car direct in the Villa, using the local carrenting, that has very good prices and can organize the transfer from and to the airport too.
