Stay in a Sicilian mountain village

The Sicilian House opened its doors in 2011 as a cultural tourism business dedicated to the traveller of Sicily.

The business offers three distinct services: the rental of Palazzo Notar Nicchi in Polizzi Generosa, travel consultations and a travel blog (for those who require daily Sicilian sojourns). 

Palazzo Notar Nicchi, in the heart of Polizzi Generosa, an ancient stone village high in the mountains of the enchanting Madonie National Park, is the centre of The Sicilian House, which is headed by Sicilian travel and history enthusiast, Suzanne Turrisi.

Palazzo Notar Nicchi is located 35 minutes from the Tyrrhenian Sea and 75 minutes from Palermo. It can be rented as an entire house which sleeps 12 people. It can also be configured and rented as two well-appointed independent apartments each of which sleeps 6 people.

We offer a unqiue experience of village life. You can explore quietly and live the rhythms of a Sicilian village while staying at Palazzo Notar Nicchi.

Each booking comes with complimentary, detailed travel recommendations to suit your interest areas and travel destinations.
