Set into the hillside with a breath-taking backdrop of the mountains and with fabulous views of the town and coastline below, this beautiful villa includes three separate apartments for those who wish to stay and enjoy all that this part of Sicily has to offer.
The gardens are an oasis of fruit trees, palms, lavender and rosemary where all guests can enjoy and relax within. There is a shared 10m x 4.5m swimming pool, an outdoor shower and a barbecue area too – the Sicilians are known for enjoying life outdoors!
Set behind electric gates there is ample parking for all residents.
The welcoming owner is also at home and is always full of helpful information to ensure you have a wonderful stay.
A fantastic base to enjoy this region, especially in the summer months when Castellammare del Golfo comes to life. Just 2km from the town itself, means easy access to all you need during your stay.
The pretty little picturesque town of Castellammare del Golfo 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.
