About the home
With sweeping views across one of Scopello's most famous bays, Casale Giulietta is an idyllic rural retreat. It is situated amongst spectacular Sicilian countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the coast, though a mere 3 kms away. This stunning 18th Century stone property is a rare find. The breathtakingly beautiful restored interior retains all the antique wooden ceilings and original features. Steps lead up from the rustic beamed living room with a traditional open fire to a galleried reading room and bedrooms. Here one can enjoy evenings throughout spring and late autumn, whilst the thick stonewalls keep the house cool on the hottest of summer days.
A recent addition to the villa has been the stunning walk in swimming pool complete with diving board and sea views. To compliment this a lower terrace has been built with an outdoor kitchen, dinning area, shower and BBQ.
Casale Giulietta is only a short drive from Visicari and the ancient village of Scopello, situated right in the heart of the literary area, ideal for families or those seeking a tranquil spot in which to write, read or paint.

The Sicily region
Sicily is at its finest out of season, in spring or October when the crowds have eased and the temperature has dipped slightly. It marks the time of the traditional grape or olive harvest, while throughout the year one of the greatest attractions of visiting this western tip is the prospect of sampling exceptionally good regional wines in and around Marsala. Otherwise why not learn the secrets of great Italian cooking while you relax in serious style at any of our villas? For those wanting to stretch themselves, the Sicilian hills are bathed in history, with beautiful churches and stunning mountain walks. The coastline also offers some of the most idyllic scenery and local people who have yet to turn their natural disposition for hospitality into an industry.
Food and wine from this region are a gourmet’s delight. With the prolific Mediterranean on its doorstep, fish is inevitably the number one choice, although there are many delicious varieties of local pasta. Within the village of Scopello lie a wonderful restaurant, cafes and a few local shops. Easily reached is an organic market where fresh produce is picked hourly from the surrounding fields.
It would also be a great injustice not to mention the ‘Tonnara’, a disused Tuna fishery with its now infamous sea views and the ‘Lo Zingaro’ National Park; a seven kilometre long line of magnificent inlets, grottoes, low reefs and fantastic sandy coves.
The Trapani / Scopello area
This western coastline is filled with magnificent inlets, unspoilt bays and splendid beaches. Picturesque seascapes follow one another like a beautiful string of pearls. Calabianca with its turquoise waters and grottoes is followed by Guidaloca, a sandy, pebbly beach with a limpid sea of ever changing colours offering a variety of water sports. Nearby is Cala Rossa where a pathway leads you down steep rocks to a charming cove with an underground grotto. Finally, you arrive at the secluded bays and inlets, which form the spectacular Zingaro nature reserve.
There are numerous local places from where you can hire boats or alternatively several agencies offer excursions along the coast past the Zingaro. From Trapani you can take a ferry and visit the island of Pantelleria or the three exotic Egadi Islands.
To help you put together a unique itinerary, we are able to offer a menu of holiday extras such as cookery lessons, painting courses, wine tours, grape harvesting, pottery classes, yoga sessions, diving excursions and boat trips. Alternatively a cook, daily maid service, chef and private tour guide can be arranged and tailored to suit each group.

Travelled to Sicily with another married couple for our summer holiday in September last year and stayed at this villa which has a stunning view, which the pool overlooks. This villa is actually quite beautiful, even nicer then the photos on the website. We had many barbecues by the pool, making good use of the outdoor kitchen and pool house. The villa itself is set in a nice and quiet setting with a mediterranean garden and only 5 mins to the village Scopello and Guidaloca beach and 10 mins from the nature reserve. The owner Giovanni was very welcoming and personally took us for drinks and showed us how to get around the local area. Also, the villa has everything you need and decorated to a high standard, traditional farmhouse with modern amenities. We made full use of the welcome hamper, wine that was finished straight away, milk, brioche and fruit. Giovanni was always available for any enquires or help in getting around, especially when we broke down with our car on the second day, he certainly made a difference and I would recommend staying here to anyone.
