 The pool is just a few metres from the house.   Views along the coast towards Palermo.  The lovely outdoor lounge area.  Dining with a view...    The gloaming! As the sun melts into the sea, the lights of the coast come on.  If you listen carefully you can hear the crickets chirping...   Part of the lawned garden in front of the house.  The living area accesses the outside terraces via a series of French windows.  Another shot of the living area.  The living room has a flat-screen TV and Sky Movies.  Looking out from the living area to the pool terrace.  The dining area with the kitchen behind.  The modern kitchen with practical central island.  One of the five comfortable en-suite bedrooms.  One of the bathrooms. Four have showers, and one a tub  A twin room.  Another of the light, airy double bedrooms.  All the bedrooms are spacious and have en-suite bathrooms.  Another bathroom.  The splendid pool has views to-die-for!  Another shot of the al fresco dining area...  Mesmerizing!  Sunset is a magical time at Casa Nuvola!  A spot of al fresco lunch on the terrace.  Casa Nuvola seen from afar.  Cefalu seen from the road leading to the villa.  Piazza del Duomo in Cefalù.  The long sandy beach of Cefalù.  A colourful view of the Duomo of Cefalù.  The long sandy beach of Lascari, just west of Cefalù.  The lido at Gorgo Lungo on Lascari beach near Cefalù.

Views galore from this superbly positioned modern villa with pool.

Perched on the crest of a hill, Casa Nuvola is a firm favourite with those looking for chic but practical accommodation, mesmerizing sea views and an al fresco dining and living area that has few rivals. If you do manage to drag yourselves away from the pool and the views, the charming town of Cefalù and a series of long sandy beaches are just a few kilometres away.

“Casa Nuvola has the perfect layout for a group. It was cozy but spacious and had a well equipped kitchen... Our fondest memory will always be the views from Casa Nuvola. We experienced some spectacular scenery in Sicily but not one could compare to the view from our villa. The sunsets were fantastic.” Jan Rigdon, United States, May 2014

Inside: Casa Nuvola is all on one floor, simply but practically organised. One large, luminous open-plan room with a sloping beamed ceiling and skylights comprises a comfortably furnished living area, a modern kitchen with central island and a dining area. A series of French windows illuminate the interior and lead out on to the surrounding terraces and pool. Off this central day area are the five spacious bedrooms (3 doubles and 2 double/twins), all with en-suite bathrooms (4 with shower and 1 with tub). Each bedroom has French windows leading out onto the surrounding terraces. White is the predominant colour of the interior, with soft beiges, greys and browns all adding to give a cool, contemporary chic feel.

Outside: the house is surrounded on all sides by terraces. To the front is a panoramic shaded terrace complete with outside living area and dining table overlooking the sea. Directly next to this is the lovely pool, complete with a variety of cushioned sunloungers and outdoor recliners. Views from the pool take in the coast below and the hills behind.

Think About

Please note that the pool is about 3 metres from the indoor living room and right next to the outdoor dining area so young children who are unable to swim should be carefully supervised.



Exploring the local Area

Set in the coastal foothills of the Madonie Mountains and just 1km from the sea as the crow flies, Casa Nuvola is in a perfect location for those who wish to mix mountains and sea. Down on the coast below are miles and miles of sandy beaches, while a short drive inland will take you deep into glorious walking country and spectacular scenery of the nature reserve and its delightful Mediaeval towns and villages.

Just fifteen minutes' drive away is Cefalu', with its spectacularly sited Norman cathedral, mediaeval town centre and sandy beach. Cefalù also offers a good and varied selection of restaurants and bars.

The motorway gives you easy access to Palermo, Monreale and the Roman remains at Solunto. Slightly further afield, the Ancient Greek remains at Segesta (west past Palermo) and Tindari (east along the coast) are well worth day trips.

N.B. April 2015: the A19 (Catania – Palermo) has been temporarily closed between Scillato and Tremonzelli, increasing the journey time by approximately one hour (estimate). We hope that this will be rectified before the summer season, and will keep our clients informed of developments.
