Self-Catering Holidays? Here is What you Can Find in Palermo, Taormina, Cefalù, Ragusa and Trapani

Sicily’s ancient heritage draws from many influences that shaped its millennia-old history. Even before the Greeks and the Romans arrived, Sicily had the proto-Sicanian culture; one of the most ancient civilizations in the world and indigenous to the central and Eastern parts of the Island more than 6,000 years ago. After them came the Sicels and Elymians- who may also have been indigenous to the region. If these are not good enough reasons for a vacation to visit the best and most preserved archaeological monuments of the Mediterranean, then consider the Island’s beautiful protected nature reserves, bays and sun-filled beaches of its coast-lines, and you may change your mind entirely. Self catering Palermo accommodations in sicily are a wonderful choice if you’re landing at the main airport in Palermo (Falcone-Borsellino Airport) and want to visit all the best locations in the Northwest- which include the Trapani coast and Castellamare Del golfo with the popular San Vito lo Capo beach, the historic fishing town of Cefalù, or the Pizzo Cane Natural Reserve and the bay of Mondello with its nature reserves of Monte Gallo and Capo Gallo.

Self Catering Cefalu villas are special because of the privileged location it enjoys, overlooking the Madonie Park inland and the coastal wonders of the Aeolians off the coast to the North East.
