Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 9
Villa Oleandro is nested in a wonderful green valley between Scopello and Castellammare del Golfo, 3 km from the sea (Guidaloca is the closest beach) and perfect for visiting the jewels of the nearby region (Palermo, Trapani, Segesta, Zingaro Reserve, San Vito lo Capo, Marsala, and nearby islands are all within one hour drive).
The villa is a beautiful typical house of approx. 150sqm and a lush mediterranean garden of 1400sqm. Lemon trees, orange trees, fig trees, oleander trees, roses, aloe vera, olive trees are just a few examples of what you can find in this garden. Not to mention the jasmins and bougainvilliers!
The house is on two floors. On the ground floor is an ample lounge dining area furnished in typical sicilian tradition. The kitchen is fully equipped and opens onto the terrace and garden.
The 4 bedrooms are in the lower floor which allow you to sleep "al fresco" during the summer. There are 2 double bedrooms, and a large kids bedroom. In the children's room you will find a double sofa bed and a bunk bed. Another single bedroom has been completely renovated this spring. Both bathrooms are new, one with a shower and the other with a bath.
The outside space is amazing with more than 100sqm of terraces of which 70sqm are in the shade, fully furnished with external lounge, dining table and kitchen/bbq. There is also an outside shower to refresh after a day at the beach.
As a family of 5 with 3 young children, this place is our ideal mediterranean retreat, with incredible views all round and an extremely relaxing environment, completely undisturbed even during the busiest months while only a few minutes drive from all the buzz and, last but not least, so easy to reach being only 30 mins drive from either Palermo or Trapani Airports.

Castellammare del Golfo is a nice little Sicilian coastal town close to Balestrate on the Golfo di Castellammare, the famous gulf in Northwest Sicily. The harbor, dominated by the castello (castle), is Castellammare's biggest attraction. Early in the morning you will see fishermen going out to sea in their typical blue and white fishing boats, later returing with freshly caught fish for the local markets and restaurants. You can book a guided boat trip or even rent a boat yourself to explore the Golfo di Castellammare.
In the summer period Castellammare's harbor comes to life at night and the area becomes a pedestrian zone, where you can visit several bars, pubs and restaurant. Sitting on a terrace overlooking the harbor, you can enjoy a cocktail, Sicilian wine, handmade ice-cream or a refreshing Sicilian granita.
The corso is also a nice area for shopping and from the town square you can arrive to the smallest of the two sandy beaches. The other, much larger, beach is located just outside of Castellammare del Golfo. In the summer period you will find some lido's, where you can rent deckchairs and a beach umbrella, however, the marjority of Castellammare's sandy beach has free access. In this area you will also find several beach establishments, bars, and restaurants.
Castellammare del Golfo is also an excellent starting point for visiting all cultural attractions in the area. You can easily reach (10-15 minutes by car) the famous nature reserve Lo Zingaro, and the small town of Scopello, with its well known Tonnara, where we organize scuba diving activities and boat trips. Other locations well worth a visit are the medieval town of Erice, the temple and amphitheatre of Segesta, the archeological park in Selinunte, the salt pans (saline) near Marsala, the cathedral of Monreale, downtown Palermo and many more! You will find more information about these locations on the culture page under the menu item the area.
