Villa | 6 bedrooms | sleeps 12
Ideal for families large and small, this delightfully designed fully air-conditioned villa with a separate guest cottage is a blend of contemporary and traditional styles. The private pool is overlooked by a dining terrace and set in immaculately maintained subtropical gardens. Whilst this property enjoys a rural setting with stunning views of the mountains, set amongst vineyards and olive groves, local amenities are all close to hand.
Situated in a quiet, prestigious residential area only 7km from the ancient town of Castellammare del Golfo and 7km from the charming village of Scopello, where 'Oceans Twelve' was recently filmed. You are ideally placed to explore this delightfully unspoilt area of Sicily, with Greek temples and tranquil nature reserve offering a string of sandy inlets, turquoise seas and underwater grottos.

The Sicily region
Sicily keeps a special place welcome for the discerning traveller who appreciates the finer elements of life, and who looks for more from a holiday than lying by the pool.
All the ancient civilizations that succeeded in conquering Sicily left behind them an outstanding heritage of artistic achievement. Visit the extraordinary and unique Greek site of Segesta, with its Doric temple and amphitheatre situated in pristine countryside, standing alone in tranquil beauty amidst nature. A little further afield is the enclave of Erice with its delightful medieval ambience and breathtaking hilltop location, filled with castles, churches and winding cobbled streets.
The capital, Palermo is a mere 70km from Scopello, but do not go with an itinerary; no map does justice to a city so colonised, yet so proud of its identity.
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.
