 Surroundings

Porticello is a small fisherman village being part of the municipality of Santa Flavia. The origin and development of the little town comes from the Tuna fishing activity. From the 16th century the fishermen settled permanently in this small seaside town that began to grow very quickly becoming an important fishing centre.

 

The town, called at that time 'Pirrera', which hosted in its pits generations of fishermen, was renamed 'Porticello' (small port) because of the natural bay called San Nicolicchio around which grew the new location and where you can still admire, almost intact, the older houses.

 

Porticello has so many secrets and stories. According to the legend, some fishermen found at the bottom of the sea the picture of the 'Candle Madonna' (Madonna del Lume). She became the protector of the village. The picture is still visible in the rustic church dedicated to the Madonna.

 

The geographical position, the beauty of the coast and its many spots overlooking the clear blue sea, the many restaurants offering the famous 'Porticello fish' still prepared according to traditional recipes, make this place a gem that survived almost intact during the centuries. Imagine, it is still possible to buy fish directly from the fishermen at the port, not in the market but from the boats, immerged in the sounds, shouts and phrases of the markets of the past.

 

Your journey to discover the beauty of Sicily can begin starting form this simple and authentic place! Discover the wonderful little coves where you can relax and enjoy the beautiful sunsets from the surrounding hills!

SURROUNDINGS:

 

Solunto: the Mount Catalfano offers a spectacular view overlooking the famous 'Conca d'Oro' which stretches from Capo Zafferano to Capo Cefalù.
This is where lie the ruins of the ancient Greco-Punic city Solunto where you can still see many examples of its magnificent past.

 


S. Elia: it is a small seaside town characterized by numerous small rocky coves and crystal clear sea. Unlike Porticello, located on the plain along the coast, S.Elia is perched on the rocks with a mosaic of narrow streets and small squares.

 


Solanto: it is a small town with a few hundred inhabitants and houses. Here the time seems to have stopped. You can still admire the old village ladies, sitting in front of their houses, repairing the fishermen’s nets…a real journey into the past!

 


S. Flavia: a small town which was built in the 18th century around the Villa Filangeri which is now the seat of the municipality and it is located next to a beautiful church.

 


Bagheria: it is a small town that dates back to the 17th century, built around the villa Butera. In its chaotic streets hides the most beautiful architectural Sicilian works of the 17th and 18th century: many splendid country villas built by noble people from Palermo who had followed the prince of Butera. Villa Palagonia (famous for its monsters sculptures) and Villa Trabia are very interesting to visit.

 


Cefalù: It is a small beautiful city, the seat of an important archbishopric. It is very famous for its beautiful cathedral and offers to the tourists one of the finest architectural examples of the Norman era of Frederick II. Cefalù is also famous for its red rocks beaches.

“Séjour très agréable” Un accueil chaleureux dans une belle maison et décorée avec goût. Nous avons passé une agréable semaine à Porticello. Des possibilités de visites multiples dans les alentours. C'est une adresse à retenir.

Doneta M. - 08/09/2014

excellent! On a passé un excellent séjour dans une maison sicilienne authentique , très propre, entretenue et très bien équipée, décorée avec un goût exceptionnel. Si on veut sentir la Sicile c’est ça la place qu’on doit choisir-en même temps tranquille de manière sicilienne bien sûr et un bon point de départ pour visiter les villes magnifiques du nord : Cefalu, Palerme et les plages magnifiques de Scopello et Castelmarre del golfo.

Nathalie B. - 13/05/2015

Très belle maison, très agréable, fraiche et exceptionnelle en plein coeur de village avec son jardin ou l'on peut cueillir basilic et figue fraiche. Cuisine trés bien équipée et linge de maison impeccable et généreux.Excellent accueil de la propriétaire!

Elisabeth A. - 02/06/2015

“printemps sicilien” Fidèle au descriptif, cette location est en effet pleine de charme et l'accueil de la propriétaire très attentionné et chaleureux. Pour le plaisir de vivre quelque temps "à la sicilienne" dans un village, et un port, typique.

Sergio C. - 05/07/2015

Para empezar las anfitrionas nos recibieron con mucho cariño y buenas intenciones. De hecho les agradecemos enormemente la ayuda después de que vueling perdiera nuestras maletas. La casa estaba completísima, no nos faltó de nada. La decoración es de muy buen gusto. El lugar es muy limpio, ordenado y espacioso (más de lo que se puede apreciar en las fotografías). El jardín cumple su función a las mil maravillas. Creemos que el precio en relación a la casa y sus prestaciones está totalmente justificado. Es importante saber que la calle dónde se encuentra la casa provoca una inmersión total en la vida cotidiana de la Sicilia autentica, es decir, la gente es madrugadora así como los vendedores ambulantes. La calle es muy viva y animada. La gente autóctona de Porticello es muy afable y generosa después del primer contacto. Te ofrece su ayuda de corazón. Fue para nosotros un viaje inolvidable gracias en parte a la casa.

Superbe découverte que cet appartement entièrement refait au coeur d'un village très vivant ! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié le grand volume du l'espace à vivre du rez de chaussée, splendide. Tout est fait avec beaucoup de goût, et très confortable, même pour une famille de 5 personnes. Nous recommandons vivement cet appartement et avons aussi beaucoup apprécié la gentillesse de l'accueil !

Maison charmante, et Mme Danika est vraiment adorable . Dommage que se soit bruyant ( pas de double-vitrages et voisins très présents, de plus, chantier au fond du jardin ). Voiture indispensable .

Sandrine L. - 10/11/2015

Merci à Donikat pour son accueil, elle avait pris le soin de venir avec une amie parlant français. Elle est venue nous retrouver à la sortie de l'autoroute pour nous amener à sa maison. Là encore merci. Très jolie maison, au confort simple, cuisine peu équipée en électroménager mais nous y avons passé 5 nuits très agréables, calmes, et les restaurants à deux pas de la maison offrent la possibilité de manger en extérieur très facilement. C'est un vrai village de pêcheurs, et l'ambiance matinale sur le petit port est très agréable et en fin de matinée ou l''après-midi les hommes réparent les filets à l'abri du soleil. Le seul inconvénient notable de la maison: le tout petit jardinet envahi de moustiques. Nous n'en avons pas du tout profité et il est plus que petit. Je crois que la propriétaire va faire le nécessaire pour régler ce soucis de moustiques. Merci encore pour votre accueil très chaleureux.

Manuelito L. - 11/11/2015

Our stay was a very nice and positive surprise! The house is charming, warm, cosy and located in the popular heart of the village of Porticello. The neighborhood is amazing, real Sicilian people, kids playing in the street, old ladies chat sitting on old chairs in front of their house doors, fisherman working hard during the night, great restaurants, authentic atmosphere! Porticello is great if you are looking to deeply experience Sicily as it was and as it is changed over the centuries. The owner is delicious and we will come back to have more cannoli and arancine.

Cim F. - 06/10/2016

Donika welcomed us on the road near an exit so she could lead us to the apartment. Here she explained everything. The place is just lovely, even bigger than it looks on the pictures. Very inspirational. And what is really nice as well, that it is very cool inside. It is a real Sicilian town, with real (nice!) people. Which is super nice, but sometimes it looks like no one ever sleeps. Ha! There are multiple good restaurants. Please try the one in the street, we enjoyed it very much. There are two beaches on walking distance and one secret, very quiet one, we found by car (just a few minutes drive). Overall it was a fantastic holiday and we can surely recommend! We even came back as an engaged couple. Grazie Donika!

Bogdan P. - 01/10/2019

The host was extremely nice and helpful, and the house is really awesome: typical Sicilian house with groundfloor + garden and two apartments at 1st and 2nd floor, each one with sleeping room, living room and bath, so that makes it ideal for two families or two couples. . There are some beautiful nearby beaches that you can reach by foot (15 min to Kafara beach, and 30 min to the best beach we saw on our trip - "Spiaggia dei francesi"). If you don't like rocky beaches and you want long sandy beaches you can find them near Palermo or Cefalu, and you can get there even by train (25 minutes to Palermo garn central station) if you don't have a car at your disposal. You can eat good fish dishes at local restaurants but you have also the possibility to buy fresh fish and grill it in the garden. To conclude, the house, the host, the town, the neighbours and all the local people made this place the best choice for relaxing and feeling the real Sicilian life
