Villa Splendida indeed! The warm and welcoming owners of this wonderful Sicilian home have created a truly fabulous experience for all guests fortunate enough to reside here during the balmy summer days in Sicily. The care and pride taken over Villa Splendida is truly exceptional with the most immaculate of gardens and the highest standards of living accommodation. Nothing has been overlooked or forgotten as guests enjoy their entire vacation experience......
Pull back the large ornate gates and find yourself amongst gardens preened to perfection, of terracotta pots brimming with lilac, flowering plants, palms and cordelines and lawned areas neatly contained within local stone walls and occasionally an olive tree dotted here and there. The large fenced off swimming pool and stylish solarium area designed yet again with comfort and enjoyment in mind.
Meander through this tropical paradise and here lies what seems at first, a wonderful fortilizio(a small castle or fortress) with exposed local stone and brick encircled by a much needed open veranda. And this is all just the beginning.....
Inside is a true Sicilian home, of spacious rooms, high beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and pastel shades that both calm and comfort the lucky few guests staying here. Satellite TV, DvD and air-conditioning are all well considered here, as is the comfortable beds, terraces overlooking the gulf to Scopello and the wonderful array of furnishings.
Throughout Italy, food and the enjoyment of eating are high on the list of priorities and the wonderful outside kitchen lends itself perfectly to al fresco dining and entertaining. This wonderful space is both stylish and functional with large stone table and seating area, pizza oven, barbecue as well as fridge/freezer and welcome inclusion of a dishwasher.
The owners of Villa Splendida also offer a delightful guest dining experience serving a whole array of traditional Sicilian dishes using local produce.
The gentle tinkling of bells from the local goat herds and the breeze through the olive groves make for a truly tranquil stay. With views across the bay to Scopello, the bustling town of Castellammare del Golfo is just a short distance away meaning guests here at Villa Splendida can enjoy the best of both worlds, peace and activity, stylish and functional. Simply splendid!
The peaceful residential area of Cinisi is located in the famous gulf of Castellammare del Golfo, a pretty little picturesque town 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.
