Passulunara is a characterful, converted farmhouse on an organic farm, with an inviting private pool and plenty of Sicilian charm. Nestled on a hillside covered in olive trees, the location is ideal for mountain scenery and glorious sea views across the Aeolian islands.
Part of Passalunara’s unique appeal is the experience of staying on an organic farm. Here you can pick your own seasonal fruit and vegetables from the kitchen garden during your stay. Chickens provide you with fresh eggs and other farm animals such as cows, horses, donkeys and pigs roam nearby.
The villa is situated at the higher end of the estate, accessed via a private entrance. The accommodation is spread over three separate farm buildings clustered together and connected by steps and terraces. It is an ideal setup for those in the group who appreciate an added layer of privacy while on holiday together.
Inside, the villa feels welcoming and colourful. It has been carefully designed to preserve the original features and feel of the farmhouse while updating it enough for modern comfort. There are eight bedrooms in total, each unique in style, with an en suite or shared bathrooms. Four bedrooms are in the main house, along with a kitchen, sitting and dining areas. The other bedrooms are housed in the two annexes, each one with two bedrooms, kitchenettes and living areas.
You will spend much of your time enjoying the garden and terraces in the warm Sicilian sunshine. A marvellous outdoor kitchen and dining area set the scene for long meals together. Head to the large swimming pool and sunbeds for endless hours of summer fun and relaxation.
When you stay at Passalunara, you are within easy reach of pretty mountain villages to explore and long sandy beaches for revitalising days by the sea. Try the town of Lascari nearby for a taste of authentic Sicilian life or head to the impressive town of Cefalu, an easy drive along the coast, for fascinating historic sites and a good choice of restaurants, shops and beach bars.
