We rent, for both long and short periods, wonderful country house on two floors.
The house is in the middle of the hills of Tardara Natural Park, in front of Tyrrenian Sea and Eolie islands.
Perfect place for artists, writers and everyone who loves spend his/her time absorbed in the beauty and the calm of nature.
The house is sorrounded by a 5000 mq enclosed garden, growed with flowers, fruit trees (olives, oranges, lemons, old oaks, almonds, figs) and palmas. It is just 1 km far away from the sea (15 minutes walking) and just 15 km far from the Cefalù historical city center.
The building is divided in two flats:
1) The flat on the upper floor is organized as a very lightly loft, with kitchen, bathroom and a big and amazing terrace looking at the sea ( 3 beds plus 1 bed extra).
2) The flat on the ground floor has a big livingroom, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom (4 beds plus 1 bed extra). It also has a outside – kitchen, perfect for cook in the hotter days!
We rent the whole house, but also the two flats separately. In the both solutions is included the use of the garden and the wi –fi.
Prices per night:
Upper apartment: 55 Euro
Bottom apartment: 75 Euro
Entire house: until 3 nights: 100 Euro; until 6 nights: 95 Euro; more than 6 nights: 90 Euro.
Difficile de prendre le chemin du retour après ces quelques jours passés dans cette belle petite maison. Au milieu de la verdure, on est comme dans un bateau, les yeux dans le vague, mélange de bleu, ciel mer on s'y perd ! Gianni, qui nous reçoit à l'arrivée, est d'une serviabilité et d'une sympathie hors pair et surtout un indicateur de petits endroits à ne pas surtout manquer.
Staying at this place was a highlight of our Sicily trip. The photos does not do the justice to the place. The house is just amazing. Beautifully and tastefully decorated, very spacious, bright and the view is beyond amazing. we have used the outdoor space every evening, enjoying the sea view and later in the night observing the night sky with a thousands of stars. Gianni is a great host, friendly, easy going and helpful. You will need a car to get to the house, as it is in a natural park, so if you are looking for a remote place, where you can relax in a breathtaking surroundings but not far from nice beaches this house is the best place to go to. I will definitely come back again.
We had a great 3 day stay in Gaia's beautiful apartment above Milianni. We didn't actually meet Gaia, but her father was on hand to guide us to the otherwise impossible-to-find property, and he was very helpful and spoke good English. (Make sure you have his phone number on hand for arrivals in case you get lost)!
We stayed in the the top-floor flat and, while a little rustic, it had all the essentials - a kitchen with fridge/freezer, gas stove, a comfy bed complete with mosquito net, and a bathroom (note: no standalone shower but a couple of friendly lizards). The place is unique, with interesting furniture and decorations, including a huge old map on the wall.
Without doubt the best thing about the flat is the view. The climb up the hill is well worth it when you see the sun rise over the mountains and sea to the east, as you look north over the Mediterranean towards the Aeolian islands on the horizon. Stunning.
(Note - you'll need a gutsy car to get up to the property. It's a 5 minute climb up a steep dirt track from Milianni to the apartment).
We ate twice in neighboring Finale de Pollina, a nice little seaside village a few kilometres west of Milianni with a couple of local bars and trattorias. We particularly liked the pizza at Il Casolare. Cefalu is only 20 minutes away by car; it's a beautiful town with medieval streets, a great sandy beach and a ruined Arab fort with incredible views. You'll find plenty of tourists in Cefalu in the summer months, and lots of restaurants and bars to keep them occupied in the evening. Palermo is just over an hour away and well worth a day trip.
Overall - a wonderful property ideally located for exploring the northern coast of Sicily, and a very helpful host. We hope to visit again one day!
Appartement calme et paradisiaque à l'étage d'une maison située dans les oliviers sur les hauteurs de la montage. Pas un bruit sauf celui des vagues et des cigales.
Cosy and quiet. This appartement is on the top of the house with a lovely view in the middle of the nature.
Appartamento ottimo al primo piano di una casa persa nelle altitudine sopra il mare. Silencio, e luce.
We spent 7 amazing days in this wonderful rustic house full of detail & cosiness.
Fresh ocean breeze,nights full of stairs, sunrise, sunset, full moon,meteor shower,view of Pollina or little islands.....slow rhythm of countryside you becoming slowly syncing in with is truly amazing!
Batteries recharged big times
Many thanks :)
Gianni e Emmanula sono stati molto gentili con noi. H'anno reagito subbito quando abbiamo tovato un nido delle vespe vicino la casa. Nella loro casa ci si puo' veramente rilassare. E' il silenzio e la splendida vista sul mare.
We are a nice and dynamic family who lives all around Italy! We love to travel and discover new places and cultures... but we also love to travel just staying in our beautiful house, meeting new people from all the world and sharing experiences with them! We love animals, nature, culture and... food, of course! ;-)
