Holidays to Campofelice di Roccella offer a huge stretch of beach and authentic restaurants dotted around village squares.
Sicily’s sleepy north
The village of Campofelice di Roccella occupies a spot on Sicily’s northern coast. It’s in the Palermo province, an hour’s drive from the island’s capital city of the same name. The popular resort of Cefalu isn’t far, either – about a 25-minute drive in the opposite direction.
Along with the village’s sleepy atmosphere, it’s the coastline that brings people to Campofelice. The Mediterranean Sea laps up against a wide strip of sand and pebbles for no less than 20 kilometres, past Campofelice and its neighbouring towns.
Walk along the beach and you’ll stumble upon the ruins of Campofelice’s historical castle. It was originally built in the 14th century, and its 20-metre high tower still stands today. Himera, a 10-minute drive along the coast, is home to an ancient Greek city, which was destroyed by the Carthaginians in 409 BC.
