Holiday apartment with fantastic sea view and sunny terrace

Fantastic – spectacular – breathtaking….these are the most used words by our guests coming to the large terrace of Casa Saracena IV.

Followed by an absolute silence for some minutes and incredulous and astonished facial expressions.

Ausblick auf Capo d'Orlando

The reason for these statements and reactions is the in fact fantastic situation of Casa Saracena IV lying like an eagle`s nest at the steep coast between Gioiosa Marea and Brolo. More sea is nearly impossible without getting wet feet. You overlook the complete bay from Capo Calava to Capo di Tindari and the Eolian Islands. 

Meerblick von der Terrasse bis zu den Eolischen Inseln

You reach Casa Saracena IV by the charming road SS 113 along the coast. At the historic Saracene tower “Torre delle Ciavole” at the way out of Gliaca di Piraino a short (ca. 500m) but winding and steep road leads to the holiday home. A private parking lot is directly at the front door.

Gliaca di Piraino the small village (ca. 1.000 inhabitants) directly at the sea is part of Piraino (ca. 3.900 inhabitants) located further up in the hills. In summer – especially during the high season – Gliaca is a lively sea resort with beautiful beaches. The rest of the year it is more quiet and sleepy – that is to say typical Sicilian. Nevertheless you get in the village all you need for your holidays. There are sufficient supermarkets, restaurants, bars, shops as well in Gliaca as in Piraino. It is just 3 km along the wonderful coast between Capo d`Orlando and Capo Cavala to the something bigger places Brolo and Gioiosa Marea. Here night owls will have good times.

Nearby Cefalù, St. Stefano di Camastra (ceramics), the National Reserve Nebrodi, the Laghetti di Marinello (the most beautiful sandy beach in Sicily and conservation area) and the towns Capo d`Orlando and Gioiosa Marea are worth visiting.
