General


This striking white cube is arguably more Hollywood Hills than rustic Sicily, but its modernist edges somehow manage to blend seamlessly with the steep, rugged mountain passes rising from its foundations. The turquoise swimming pool is a focal point, extending from the landscaped gardens right up to the property’s edges, overlooked by vast and carefully-planned living spaces behind French windows. White cubic furnishings and marble-esque floors are broken up with occasional accents of primary colours, adding warmth to the fun interiors which manage to be equal parts stylish to home comforts.

Location


The residential area of Terrasini is located a short distance from the famous gulf of Castellammare del Golfo, also 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 (2 of which in walking distance from the villa), 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 Terrasini 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.
