An apartment with fabulous views and a welcoming pool in a tranquil setting.

Pino Marittimo is one of three apartments, peacefully tucked away in the Sicilian countryside and not far from the Madonie Natural Park. Surrounded by beech trees and pines, the apartment enjoys beautiful views over verdant rolling hills and down towards the Tyrrhenian coast below.

Set on the first floor, it is furnished in a simple Italian style with a small open-plan kitchen, a lounge with dining area and two bedrooms. Patio doors lead onto a large balcony where guests can sip wine, sample local delicacies and gaze at the starry skies after dark. From the property, a short narrow path leads through Mediterranean gardens onto the shared swimming pool where the panoramic views are at their best. 

Pino Marittimo is the ideal base from which to explore northern Sicily. There are plenty of opportunities for days out in the local area – Cefalù with its narrow cobbled streets, bustling piazzas and impressive Norman cathedral is only a short drive as are an abundance of alluring golden beaches with gently shelving waters.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

A fascinating medieval town just inland from the Tyrrhenian coast, Collesano is dominated by the Basilica San Pietro and ruins of a nearby Norman castle.

LOCAL BEACHES

Lungomare di Cefalù,
Lungomare di Cefalù is a beautiful 8km stretch of golden sands by calm, shallow waters. It’s ideal for families with sun loungers and parasols for hire.

Caldura
Caldura is a lesser known and therefore quieter beach, opposite the towns harbour without a sun bed or parasol insight (unless you take your own). It’s a 20 minute walk from the town centre.

Sant’Ambrogio
Sant’Ambrogio is a large beach, 5km from Cefalù. This mainly sandy beach is one of the quietest in the region.

FESTIVALS

The Festival of San Salvatore, Cefalù - August
A celebration of Cefalù's patron saint with processions, great food and the odd glass of wine, held over a few days each August, swelling the number of Cefalù’s summer visitors even more, especially on the last day of the festival.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Duomo di Cefalù
One of the most important buildings from the Norman era, the Cefalù Cathedral dominates the skyline in the main piazza of the town.

La Rocca
Towering 270 metres over the town of Cefalù, La Rocca is a spectacular craggy outcrop with the Cefalù Castle standing guard on top. From here, the views across the bay to the mountains are magnificent.

Monti Madonie
Take a drive inland to the Madonie mountains, a natural park with numerous excellent hiking routes and picturesque, historic hilltop towns and villages.

Palermo
The bustling and vibrant city of Palermo has a plethora of historic gems waiting to be discovered, including the magnificent Cathedral di Monreale, possibly the finest Norman building in Sicily. Other highlights include some excellent museums, an open air-theatre and colourful street markets.
