Apartment | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
From the left entrance to the house, a few steps will lead you to a mezzanine with double bed and en-suite bathroom with shower. Going back down, you will be welcomed by a modern fully equipped kitchen and a bright dining room, overlooking the picturesque town roofs and the wide valley underneath. A cool refuge in the hot Sicilian lunchtimes, with no noise from TV on the background! The sober neoclassical ceilings, the antique furniture and airy atmosphere of the following rooms are soon going to bewitch you. Adjoining the dining room, a peaceful XIX century game room, and then the very heart of the house, a coloured living room with ethnic furniture, satellite TV and a nice brick fireplace also working as stove. From its elegant columned terrace you will enjoy the most spectacular view you can imagine: brick-coloured rooftops, pointed bell towers and, beyond, endless expanses of land and sea: central Sicily and the Mediterranean coast. On a clear day you can even see Africa, and at night a striking circle of lighted villages and the starry sky above will leave you breathless. And very cool! The air is crisp here! Further ahead, you'll find the reading room, with stylish bookshelves, leather sofas and satellite TV (so here's more room to relax!), and a sober and quiet parlour with 1940's furniture. At the end of the long corridor leading to the right entrance of the house, a few steps will lead you to a colourful double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Going back, on the opposite side of the corridor you'll find a twin-bedded double room, a bathroom with tub, a double bedroom, and a 1940's study to use as internet corner, if you wish. You can also find a laundry room, next to the left entrance of the property. Caltabellotta There's so much to see in Caltabellotta! The ruins of the Norman castle, the Sican necropolis, ancient churches, characteristic streets, panoramic spots and, at a short distance, the picturesque S. Anna village, S. Cono Caves, the woods on the Sican Mountains, the Sosio river area, and the Mediterranean Sea. The colourful Sciacca is a few km away, with its historical charm, fish restaurants and nice shops. Rocco Forte's Golf Resort and its 18 holes course is a short drive away. Should you wish to bath in the warm Mediterranean waters and tan a little bit, you can choose the close S. Giorgio beach, or Eraclea Minoa, with its archaeological site and gorgeous white cliffs, or drive as far as Selinunte or Agrigento, and grab the occasion to enjoy a cultural trip among imposing Greek Doric temples before or after a refreshing swim.

The Sicily region
Sicily, right in the heart of the Mediterranean sea, has a cultural heritage unsurpassed by any other holiday destination. It's array of historical rulers have provided the island with unique architecture, art and traditions. The coastline is dramatic and beautiful (like the people) and the towns are a bustling hubbub of activities.
In the centre of the island sits the majestic Mt Etna, a still active volcano. A trip to the top is a must.
Being in Italy, and having such a rich history, Sicily has a wonderful selection of food & drink. The various cultures and natural local produce combine to make dishes that can be found nowhere else in the world.

"A truly Sicilian experience!"
