Stay in a village palazzo high in Sicily's Madonie mountains


The Sicilian House opened its doors in 2011 as a business dedicated to the traveller of Sicily who enjoys slow, quiet travel and wants to discover the more hidden Sicily.

The business offers: a range of holiday accommodation in Palazzo Notar Nicchi in Polizzi Generosa in the mountains of the Madonie National Park, travel ideas with any bookings and a travel blog for those who love to read about Sicily.

Palazzo Notar Nicchi (the house) is the centre of The Sicilian House, which is headed by Sicilian travel and history enthusiast Suzanne Turrisi.

The house is well located in the historic centre of Polizzi Generosa, an ancient noble stone village of the Madonie Mountains.

It is perfect for those who want to enjoy living locally in a Sicilian mountain village to enjoy cooking, reading, slow food, art, nature, walking and hiking in the mountains and the discovery of artisans, traditions and history. It is also well positioned for travelling further afield in Sicily.

The house affords quiet discovery of the village, the Madonie National Park and other well preserved stone villages of the Madonie Mountains. It is only 20 minutes from the A19 motorway, 40 minutes from the medieval seaside town of Cefalu and just over an hour from Palermo.

It can be rented as an entire house, with 6 bedrooms, which sleeps 12. It also offers one, two and three bedroom options and is generously proportioned and appointed for groups and also solo travellers. Each booking comes with complimentary travel ideas to suit your interest areas.
