Cefalù

Sixteenth century Saracen tower right by the sea with private access to the beach. Magic atmosphere at sunset. Gorgeous garden. Secluded and quiet for the perfect dream holiday. Suitable for anybody longing for an unforgettable holiday!

It's true, of course, that Sicily abounds in fascinating places to see and visit, not only for its landscapes and coastlines, but also because of its colorful history and mixed culture that dozens of civilizations have left behind. But this 16th century Norman watch tower located in the middle of a beautiful Mediterranean garden and surrounded by palm trees, oleanders and bougainvilleas, is definitely one of our favorites The tower that dates back to the
16th century, sits perched on a cliff with a spectacular view over a deserted beach and crystal clear blue sea water! If you do choose this remarkable place to stay, we guarantee you'll be talking about it for years to come!

Property details

If life within the walls of an antique watch tower in a stunningly panoramic position appeals to you then this is the just the place. No matter which room of the cool and airy building you find yourself in, you'll marvel at the breathtaking views of the unspoilt landscapes found in this part of Sicily. Step through the gate of the property to find an extensive lawned garden dotted with Maritime palms, shady trees and scattered with sun-loungers. There's another building too that acts as an outdoor kitchen and dining area with table for 6 off which lies a barbecue. Steps from the garden lead down to the pebbled beach that can only be accessed from the house or by boat so privacy is ensured. Each floor of the three-storey tower consists of approximately fifty square meters: on the first floor there's a living room with fireplace, a sofa bed, a corner kitchen and a bathroom. On the second floor there is a bathroom, a double bedroom with two sea-view windows as well as a second bedroom with a three-quarter bed. A narrow, steep staircase leads up to the third floor where there's a large bedroom with two double beds and a bathroom. Up a few more steps to the roof-top terrace that boasts the most breathtaking view you are ever likely to see! The furnishings are simple and despite the fact that there's no air conditioning the interior of the tower remains surprisingly cool even on the hottest of summer days due to the thickness of its walls. On the ground floor there's another bathroom next to a small but handy laundry. At night, you'll be lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea! Thrillingly isolated yet so close to the village,

Surrounding Area

Cefalù

The building is located in one of the most beautiful stretches of Sicily’s northern coastline between Castel di Tusa- 4.5 kilometres away- and Cefalù which is only 19 kilometres away. This spot is in the centre of northern Sicily so ideal as a base for exploring this part of the island. We highly recommend Cefalù, Santo Stefano di Camastra (renowned for its beautiful ceramics), Tindari, the Nature Reserves of the Madonie and the Nebrodi. An hours drive gets you to Palermo in one direction and in the other direction to Etna and Taormina. Despite there being so many places to see you may, however, be tempted to simply stay at the tower admiring the wonderful sunsets or watching out for pirates!
