An island of green in the heart of Sferracavallo 5 minutes walking to the sea (cliff and sand). A small villa with garden, built-in early 1900, restored and with a garden, in a quiet location.

The double rooms, also single-use, all come with ensuite bathroom, vintage floors, hairdryer, safe, flat-screen satellite TV, independent heating/air conditioning and unlimited wi-fi.

Always, with every guest change, the apartment is cleaned and disinfected giving priorities to areas frequently touched such as switches, remote controls, handles in addition to other parts of the house, for your and our health.

The Massimo theatre and other areas of interest in Palermo can be reached in 10/15 minutes thanks to the proximity to the bus stops (628/616/614).

The centre of Sferracavallo is far from Il Dammuso in a 5-minute short walk: there you can find many restaurants where you can taste fresh fish in front of the sea.

It is easily accessible from the airport by car and by public transport and is ideal for both business and holiday stays.

You can park your bikes or bikes in the garden.

Unfortunately we will not be able to accommodate guests who have not been vaccinated with a second dose for less than 2 weeks, and who cannot show the green pass.

We are here!, PIF (Pina, Ilaria and Francesco). You always find ourself at home when we are not between university and work, between our garden and a good book.

Come and find us, so we will be happier (and we also hope you!).

Area seaside
Our home is 100 m far from the sea (beach, rocks and solariums). Famous restaurants, bus stops, town's centre, are about 100 m far from the hotel.

This maritime place, integral part of Palermo city sea zone, is near the Capo Gallo's marine protected area, a strategical place ideal for a work in the middle or in the neighbourhood of Palermo (10 km is the distance to the city centre), to visit interesting cultural touristic zone such as Palazzo dei Normanni (17 km, 23 mins), the cathedral (17 km, 23 mins), Santa Rosalia’s sanctuary (city protectress; 16 km, 20 mins), Monreale’s cathedral (18 km, 25 mins), Salemi, Trapani (90 km), Erice, Cefalù, and all the northwestern Sicily;

Sferracavallo is far from Palermo Falcone-Borsellino airport 19 km (17 mins), from Paolo Borsellino velodrome 7 km (10 mins), R. Barbera common stadium 17 km, 15 mins, 15 km (20 mins) from the port. You can arrive at Sferracavallo choosing tree different bus lines: 616, 628, 677, or taking our bikes and vice versa.

Sferracavallo, an oasis of green in the centre of the city, is in the middle of Capo Gallo’s Natural Marine Reserve, so you can do jogging, running and mountain biking in the promenade or inside the reserve.

That's why we think that represents an ideal point of support even for short overnights, in summer or winter time; a good relaxing alternative otherwise the beautiful city centre.

Accoglienza ed empatia sono gli ingredienti vincenti per Il Dammuso, o meglio per la sua proprietaria. Insieme alla mamma e al papà ti fanno sentire a casa. La colazione è perfetta...

Accoglienza disponibilità gentilezza, come essere in famiglia. Il centro di Palermo si raggiunge facilmente con la metropolitana di superficie, quindi se non si deve andare lontano si sta bene senza macchina. Il mare è splendido la riserva naturale capo gallo splendida le persone meravigliose.. il cibo unico. Ci tornerò sicuramente.

Il dammuso è una bellissima struttura sita a Sferracavallo, il quartiere prospiciente il mare di Palermo. Ilaria la gestisce con molta cura ed è attenta ad ogni esigenza dei clienti. Francesco, suo padre è un vero conoscitore della città di Palermo e sapranno consigliarvi per sfruttare al meglio il tempo della vostra permanenza. Ricchissime colazioni e vera ospitalità Siciliana. Da provare!

Punto di forza la cordialitá dei padroni di casa, che ti fanno immergere totalmente nella realtá siciliana, sempre attenti alle esigenze del cliente che viene coccolato, soprattutto durante la colazione (8.30/10) dove si può trovate ogni giorno una specialità locale nuova e fresca; buona posizione dell’alloggio e sistemazioni contenute ma essenziali. Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo soprattutto per chi come me viaggia in solitaria.

Ho soggiornato io mia moglie e una coppia di amici durante la festa del patrono. Nonostante qualche problema di parcheggio (dovuto all'evento) risolto grazie alla premura dei gestori. Struttura e pulizia ottime, colazioni da favola. Ilaria e i genitori persone splendide. Da provare.

Un B&B accogliente e speciale come questo non lo avevo mai incontrato nei miei viaggi. La famiglia che lo gestisce poi è speciale come il luogo. Le colazioni sono un sogno di bontà.

Non posso che dare il massimo dei voti a questo incantevole B&B a Sferracavallo, a due passi del meraviglioso mare di Sicilia; Pulizia, colazione, ubicazione e servizi ineccepibili, e una particolare lode all'ospitalità di Ilaria e dei suoi genitori, che oltre alla loro gentilezza e disponibilità estreme mi hanno messo a disposizione la loro grandissima conoscenza culturale e geografica dei luoghi, contribuendo a rendere questa piccola vacanza veramente indimenticabile. Lo consiglio vivamente a tutti e non vedo l'ora di tornarci, grazie di tutto. Milena da Roma.
