This sophisticated, contemporary villa lies at the foot of the imposing mount Erice, in the north-western corner of Sicily and enjoys sweeping views of the surrounding countryside, the town of Trapani and the Egadi islands in the distance.
The typical local vegetation of carob trees, dwarf palms and young olive groves surrounds this elegant villa, where marble floors and large windows help create a cool and relaxing ambience throughout. Only a few steps away from the villa is the beautiful swimming pool to add further luxury to your Sicilian holiday.
The area offers numerous places of historical, artistic and natural interest, such as the medieval hamlet of Erice at the top of Mount San Giuliano, or the salt works of Trapani with its distinctive windmills. Further afield you will be able to admire the dramatic Greek temple at Segesta or visit Favignana, one of the most beautiful small islands in the Mediterranean.
The villa is located in a wonderful and panoramic setting. The ancient medieval village of Erice is a short drive from the villa. The town is an incredible labyrinth of little cobbled streets and passages wide enough to accommodate one person at a time. Its historic centre is full of local handicraft shops – ceramics, carpets and traditional almond and candied fruit sweeties. In the vicinity you will find the lovely fishing village ofTonnara di Bonagìa where you can visit the boathouse. Don’t miss to visit Favignana, an island that is blessed with lovely coastlines immersed in glorious crystal-clear water. They call the island La Farfalla due to its butterly shape. During the summer there are many ferries from Trapani (about 20 minutes by hydrofoil to Favignana).
