soloSicily: Feast Days in Palermo - Stay in a villa with private spa and beach access
Visit Palermo in July and experience the best of Sicilian food when the city celebrates its patron saint at the seven-day Festino di Santa Rosalia (9-15 July).
Fish stalls selling mussels, oysters and sea-urchins sit side-by-side with nougat-makers, fruit stalls and of course, 'gelaterie' with their traditional jasmine, cinnamon and prickly-pear flavoured ice-cream. Other stalls sell toasted nuts, almonds and pistachios, roasted broad beans and a range of offal stuffed into ‘focaccia’
For an outstanding self-catering experience, stay at Villa Lory, the latest addition to specialist villa company soloSicily’s portfolio. The stunning six-bedroom villa is in the seaside village of Casteldaccia, just outside Palermo, and has a private spa, sea views from every bedroom and a garden gate that leads directly on to a sandy beach.
The villa’s lower ground floor houses the ultimate private spa area, with a small gym, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room, opening out on to a covered patio and a large garden that slopes down to the beach. Each of the six bedrooms is ensuite and two of them have private balconies, accessible via vast floor-to-ceiling glass doors.
Additional services at Villa Lory include a ‘private cook’ service.
