Villaggio Santino is in Mongerbino, a district in one of the fastest rising holidays hotspots in Sicily: Bagheria (red umbrella, right side of image).
Mongerbino was just made for holidays at the beach. Holiday apartments with private beaches are available for your rest and relaxation. Mornings you can skip the shower and jump straight into the water.
Villaggio Santino is an ensemble of holiday apartments situated on the picturesque Gulf of Palermo. Their planner - Santi Aiello – was far ahead of his time. Instead of a sprawling concrete jungle, he created small single apartments in the Sicilian style.
But not only that. Santi Aiello was committed from the outset to harmoniously blending the structures in with the Mediterranean greenery of the bay. Today Andrea Aiello continues to maintain Villaggio Santino according to his father's excellent vision. The natural environment is lovingly maintained.
Three holiday apartments at Villaggio Santino are managed by Solemar Sicilia. This includes not only the details of the rental and recreational activities, but an extra treat: the option to cook and being cooked for.
Santi Aiello's superior planning even took into account the rocks of the protected bay. He installed a platform for safe entering and exiting from the water (Marker 2 on the map above). The result is that it feels as safe as a swimming pool.
You can also use the platform for entering the water by canoe. These are available for rent at Solemar Sicilia.
Each apartment at Villaggio Santino is self-contained. They offer two bedrooms, a kitchen, and bathroom.
But most importantly for privacy, each apartment has a large terrace extending the entire width that is not visible from neighboring apartments. Awnings provide protection from too much sun.
The terraces offer breathtaking views of the Gulf of Palermo. Some say it has the most beautiful sunset in the world.
Beautiful sunsets aren't just found in the Caribbean and other island paradises.
Around the Gulf of Palermo, the sunset is unforgettable. Especially with the mountains to the northwest and the gorgeous summer clouds floating high above.
The view comes free of charge on your private terrace at Villaggio Santino.
Villaggio Santino not only faces the beautiful sea, but it also stands at the foot of Bagheria's own mountain and nature reserve: Monte Catalfano.
Monte Catalfano offers easy-to-reach hiking routes – and above all, a wonderful view of the sea.
No special equipment is needed. But be sure to have appropriate footwear.
Monte Catalfano fascinates everyone who visits while enjoying their holidays in Sicily. But even in ancient times it was regarded as an attractive spot. The ancient Phoenicians founded the city of Solunto here.
After the Phoenicians came the Greeks and then the Romans until at one point, the city was simply left to itself. It wasn't until the 1800s that the city was excavated.
Today it is the only ancient city in Sicily whose basic layout is still visible and intact. And it's barely a few kilometers from Villaggio Santino.
The most visible legacy of Sicily's many conquerors and their cultures is the incredible stonework they left behind them.
It almost competes with Sicilian cooking. And no one has mastered this wonderful cultural mix better than Maria Carnevale, the co-owner of Solemar Sicilia (photo, right).
She not only cooks for the delight of guests at Villaggio Santino, but offers cooking classes as well (both optional).
The holiday apartments available at Villaggio Santino are supervised by Solemar Sicilia. Solemar Sicilia is a Sicilian-German family-run operation that has offered excellent holiday apartments, Bed & Breakfast and hotel accommodation for thirty years.
