At Casa del Tesoro you are invited to relax on your sun lounger, shaded by the heat of the Sicilian sun by your parasol, take a dip in your 12m x 6m private pool and bubble away in the Jacuzzi. The kids? They’ll be diving off the boards and playing amongst the beautiful secure gardens with lush green lawns and trees, flowers and pots of scented herbs.
Sicily is all about living al fresco, so the outdoor kitchen area means you can serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner should you wish and dine outdoors too.
Casa del Tesoro offers living space for up to 4 guests in the Main House and an additional 2 guests in the D’pendance. It is elegant, cool and modern living with air-conditioning, satellite TV and all facilities you will need during your stay.
Nestled in the hills, it offers wonderful views of the mountainside but just 3kms from the beach too.
Hidden away behind large gates on a tree-lined residential area between Castellammare and Scopello, this location offers peace and quiet in abundance. And yet just 3kms away is the nearest beach and nearby you will find the pretty little picturesque town of Castellammare del Golfo that bursts with energy and activity during the summer months. This coastal town roughly translated as Sea Fortress of the Gulf, sits in the famous gulf of Northwest Sicily.
Its harbour is dominated by its castle, claiming both Arab and Norman heritage, and is one of the town’s biggest tourist attractions with an interesting little museum (free entrance). There is a wonderful array of restaurants, pizzeria’s & bars here where you can enjoy a hand-made gelato or a refreshing Sicilian granita. You can also catch a boat excursion including a trip that sails around the peninsula allowing you to see the national park of Zingaro and the hilltop town of Scopello from the sea.
The harbour is a hive of activity during the morning with fisherman in their typical blue and white boats, as they return with their catch of the day to supply the local restaurants and markets.
If you wish to explore a little further afield for a real taste of Sicily, then Castellammare del Golfo is an excellent base for exploring. The nearby city of Trapani was almost all but destroyed during WWII, however the old town is still worth a visit including the restored Cattedrale di San Lorenzo.
The small collection of islands known as the Egadi Islands, lie just off Trapani’s coastline and two of these islands are just a 30 minute boat trip away, where one can swim, dive, cycle and explore.
But a trip to this region would not be complete without experiencing the capital of Palermo. Layered with history there are almost too many things here to see, the Cathedral and Catacombs of Cappucini sit comfortably next to The Modern Art Gallery and Teatro Massimo, Italy’s largest indoor theatre.
