Home From Home Bed and Breakfast Sicily

Home from Home Bed and Breakfast in Sunny Sicily

Home from home bills itself as ‘a small comfortable bed & breakfast with cosy rooms where you will be able to rest in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere in the splendid Palermo countryside’.

For those looking to check out Sicilian delights such as Agrigento and the valley of the Temples, Palermo, Cefalù, and Selinunte, Kathy and Totò’s Home from Home is a bed and breakfast worth considering.

It is situated quite close to Palermo near the Corleonese-Alto-Belice, area and is around 1km from the town of Bolognetta.



Place:  Località Bolognetta, Near Palermo.

Region:  Sicily, Southern Italy

Home from Home is run by Kathy from the UK and Totò from Sicily, a which means that you will be able to benefit from this couple’s wealth of local knowledge.  I know this is something which I often mention, but local knowledge is worth its weight in gold and can turn a good holiday into a great and really memorable one.

After a quick chat with Kathy or Totò you will know about the best local beaches and the most interesting more off the beaten track places to visit in order to get the most out of your Sicilian experience.

Now, I have never been to Sicily, but one of these years I sure as heck will.  It’s a fascinating place, steeped in history and seemingly stuck in its own little personal time warp.   Sicilians are a nice bunch too – this I know because I have met more than a few.

Sicily- The Land of Montalbano

Donnalucata, Sicily, Italy
Donnalucata, Sicily, Italy

Sicily is the home of fictitious down-to-earth Italian police chief Salvo Montabano who was created by Italian writer and law graduate Andrea Camilleri, and Camilleri’s books have been lovingly transfomed into one of the best acted and directed TV series on Italian television today.

Montalbano’s home is in Donnalucata which is a day trip away from Kathy and Totò’s Home from Home bed and breakfast.

If you have ever seen the Montalbano TV series, you will already have a few ideas as to where to visit in Italy’s enchanting Mediterranean island.

Does Italy Need another Dictator?

Before you and my Italian readers throw their hands up in horror at the thought of another dictator taking power in Italy, I don’t mean another Mussolini, more of a Lee Kuan Yew. ‘A Lee Kuan who?’, you might be asking yourselves.

The Indie Italian Band Amycanbe

Someone left a comment on one of my other Italian music posts about Amycanbe, so I checked them out. They sing in English, but indie band Amycanbe is a one hundred percent Italian, with its members from Romagna in north-eastern Italy.
