Our home

The property is situated in one of the most desirable areas of the Madonie Nature park just near the medieval town of Polizzi Generosa. The house offers spectacular views of the town sitting up on the hilltop, the mountains and the valley itself. Spring water from the nearby underground source runs along canals through the one hectare property and also fills the natural, stone pool which you will be able to enjoy on warm days. In the main part of the house on the ground floor there is a spacious dining area, sitting room with an iron wood burner, well-equipped kitchen, master bedroom, single bedroom, main bathroom and WC. All the rooms are tastefully furnished, both stylish but down to earth and the high ceilings give the house a light and airy feel. An outdoor staircase leads to a small, independent apartment with its own terrace and bathroom which is ideal for a second couple or teenagers who like their privacy..

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple with 4 daughters ranging in age from 15-26, it is unlikely however that they would all travel with us. We've done three house swaps so far and they have all been extremely successful. As we're both quite house proud we would certainly take care of your property. We do have a cat but if whoever took the house wasn't an animal lover we could make other arrangements for him.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The property is located in The Madonie National Park, 1000mts above sea level. As you drive up the winding approach road from the motorway, you will get the feeling you are about to stumble onto a special place. The house is situated in a heavenly spot and it's perfect for unwinding far from the crowds. There's a plunge pool, an alfresco lounge area and lots of other nooks and crannies in the garden where you can curl up, nod off or enjoy the breathtaking views. It's an easy drive to the village of Polizzi where there is a supermarket, shops and restaurants and where the warm, generous locals will make you feel welcome. It's a short drive too, to the other interesting mountain villages including Gangi, Petralia and Isnello to name just a few. The house is ideally positioned for seeing just about anything on the island - you just need to decide which of the wonders you are most interested in and head there.
