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.

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.
