The name Finestra sul Mare or a window to the sea was inspired by the owner who wished to be able to wake each morning and enjoy views out to sea. And so he began to design and then build a beautiful new home for all those visiting Sicily.
Now you can be one of the first to experience this sleek and modern villa with all modern comforts catered for. LCD satellite television, DVD player, insect screens and well equipped kitchen add to the light and fresh vibe this villa offers.
Living takes place outdoors during the summer months in Sicily and the covered terrace with views over the landscapes and across to the sea, is a great place to prepare the evening meal and dine al fresco.
The 6 x 3 meter dipping pool below with its decked area is also a great place to relax and cool off when it gets a little warm.
Located in a residential area of Castellamare del Golfo it is just 8km to the bustling centre.
The pretty little picturesque town of Castellamare 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.
