Province of Palermo, Sicily
The Masseria Pernice, the historical residence of the Sallier De La Tour family, is located in the area of Monreale, nestled in the Valle dello Jato, among picturesque hills and vineyards. It was 20-years ago when landlords Domitilla and Filiberto Sallier de La Tour restored their home and opened it to their guests.
All apartments overlook the traditional courtyard located at the centre of the mansion, and are adorned with cobblestone, bougainvilleas, jasmines, roses, and climbing geraniums.
The lounge was once a granary and rooms for farmers helping the de La Tour family during the grape harvest, the lounge and apartments are now exquisitely furnished with antique family pieces, Sicilian ceramics, and period prints. The Masseria has preserved its traditional atmosphere, flavours and appeal, and is immersed in a splendid garden backed by hills covered in olive, pine and eucalyptus trees
