Auch dieses Jahr hat es uns, nun schon zum zum dritten Mal, in die Villa Valguarnera gezogen Wir haben uns dort vom 10.-16.06.2017 aufgehalten und das Erlebnis war genauso wunderbar wie die vorherigen... more »This year it has given us, for the for the third time in the Villa Valguarnera pulled we have stopped us from the 10 16.06.2017 and the experience was just as wonderful as the previous times. The property is very special, there is an indescribable harmony, and the beauty of the Villa and the Park are hard to beat. Two of the apartments - we know all three are situated in the side wings, one in a branch, and each have their 'private' Parkbschnitt, where you may reside undisturbed on the back. To get the original building substance, not all "modern" has been renovated, but so the atmosphere remained intact and everything is still there. Of course you should have a sense of historical houses and their history and cannot be from the an or interfere with another small quirk leave. The apartments are tastefully and comfortably furnished with old furniture, the walls partly natural with preserved frescoes; everything radiates a special charm. The owner, Princess Vittoria Alliata, was, like during our first stay, like ready to lead through the private part of the Villa and to tell the turbulent story: among them, that the money flowing through the stay of the guests at a club, which manages the Villa and provides for renovation and preservation of building substance: so also the guests help , to preserve this unique cultural heritage. The staff is very friendly and helpful and gives also practical information, particularly Filippo, who is almost always here. The location is ideal for our opinion: one is by train in 15 minutes in Palermo, and there are beautiful beaches nearby, for example in Santa Flavia. You can reach but easy more provinces, for example, Cefalù, or take a trip to the Interior of the country. In Bagheria can get everything even to walk from the Villa, there are many shops, several restaurants, or "Rosticcerie", where you can take with you typical dishes. You can eat very well in the nearby villages. Thank you, Vittoria, that we were allowed to be your guests.

Le "guest houses" di Villa Valguarnera sono le cosidette foresterie, dove abitavano non i dipendenti bensì la famiglia del principe. La principessa Vittoria ci ha spiegato infatti che Il corpo central... more »The "guest houses" from Villa Valguarnera are the so-called foresterie, where dwelt not employees but the Prince family. Princess Victoria explained that the main building was used exclusively by parents: in the 18th century it contained only two bedrooms and two alcoves. All the rest were salons salons libraries etc. The semicircular and the bodies were destined to the family: Children who were living in what are called foresterie, aunts, brothers today have been opened to welcome guests from all over the world, without changing the volumes or the fascinating interior arrangement of the rooms, giving them only of modern comfort and spacious bathrooms. Very different from one another for colors, decorations, and the location (more or less) with its landscape, the guest would still allow all to live life to the fullest. The sun rising over the sea and set on a Palermo fiery red, full moon almost dazzling reflected in the Gulf of Cefalù, the constellations that revolve around the large statue on top of the roof, the scent of orange blossom, jasmine, oleander, the tinkling sheep bells used for biological cleaning of the Park and the estate, the neighing of Mare , the wonderful honey produced under the brand family historian "Duca di Salaparuta," domestic workers smiling and friendly, all at Villa Valguarnera continues as if the world hadn't changed. Spend a few days, even without having to turn around to see the sights (which, although they are many) allows you to freeze time and find the right rhythms of life. Not have access to the main building doesn't mean anything to the charm of the permanence. You can still book a guided tour of the same and the wonderful night tour: Cosmorama! For us it was a unique experience, duration aimé too little ... But we intend to go back soon for joy to partner with our presence to the courageous battle for the defence and the restoration of this treasure.

Come si fa a recensire con dei pallini il pernottamento in un luogo come Villa Valguarnera? Non si può, è fuori categoria: ci andate se capite e apprezzate ciò che è, nel bene e nel male, altrimenti a... more »How do you identify with shot overnight at a place like Villa Valguarnera? You can't, it's out of category: go there if you understand and appreciate what it is, good or bad, otherwise go elsewhere. Just don't pretend to assess the living room with the normal criteria of any randomly selected hotel over the Internet. The villa, its garden and its dependencies (those in which sleep) are breathtakingly beautiful in itself; a century of great harmony complex, embedded in the landscape, which reminded us in Turin the coeval Palace of Stupinigi. Are also damaged by time, but certainly not degraded or dirty; Indeed, compared to the size and being completely in charge of the property, are well maintained; and one reason to stay here is helping out with your money to the maintenance and restoration of an asset like that. Another reason to stay here is to experience the feeling of shelter on an island of beauty, culture and history, besieged by a sea of degradation and ignorance. I will not dwell too much on garbage, dilapidated buildings and/or abusive (including those built by the mafia in the Park of the villa), music blaring and tamarra shot neon altars to Saint Padre Pio that characterize the urban center of Bagheria, but crossing the imposing gate you pass the boundary between discomfort and tranquillity, between degradation and hope : it may seem overblown hype, but try and tell me, and indeed this is precisely the right situation where perceive as the beauty of the surroundings and the beauty of the soul are directly related, both positive and negative. We stayed in the smallest apartment, one to two people, subject to another critical review with photos. Yes it is an old addiction but it is full of character, designed and decorated as such. You will find yourself in a large bedroom and a large living room; and Yes, the tiles of the kitchen have faded from use, the décor combines beautiful antique furniture to other more anonymous, the walls are a bit chipped; as indicated, this is a private apartment set in a big hotel room not sharing. However, the entire collection is of great charm, great taste, very broad, and it is also comfortable and usable, especially in summer, where you can enjoy both the shadow inside of the outdoor patio; the bed is very comfortable, the shower was redone recently, and overall we had a good time and without any need to complain (among other things having had a very kind and very helpful). In short, if you come here with the idea that being a princely villa you will find Golden faucets, whirlpools and Ferrari in the backyard, you have watched too many fiction; There are also three hundred years old buildings with all their history, and that's the beauty. Here it is for the luxury material, but for the mental; for intellectual and aesthetic stimulation by staying in a unique place, part of Italy's cultural and literary history, and this is absolutely priceless. Stimulating experiences are not lacking: for example the possibility to walk as much as you like in the beautiful garden, inhale the scent of flowers, admire the view of course beautiful, ravaged by the cement of men, sloping down to the sea in two different directions. And then the opportunity to have a chat with the landlady, who not only responds amiably on a cell phone, but will tell you about the vicissitudes of its struggle to defend the villa, his relationship with Tolkien (although, if I were you, I would get tired of talking about it for a while) and many other things. Unfortunately we didn't have the opportunity to visit the Interior of the villa, but will definitely come back if we have the opportunity, because for us it was not an overnight stay, but an experience for the senses and for the brain. If this is what interests you, come and enjoy them too. P.s. Information Logistics: the driveway to bet on the Navigator is located in via Gramsci 27, and beware of the big step of the sidewalk for the entrance side ...
