Luxury Sicilian country villa with pool and views - Tucked away in a tranquil residential area on the edge of a small rural village, this splendid air-conditioned villa with pool and great views over rolling hills and vineyards, is ideally situated to easily reach both the northern and western coast of Sicily in less than 30 minutes’ drive. Restaurants and shops are just a stroll away and fascinating destinations such as Segesta, Erice and the Port of Trapani are also a short drive away.
This traditional stone-built Sicilian farmhouse has been beautifully transformed into a stylish property which incorporates original stonemasonry and wooden beams into a modern design, with a blend of classic and country Italian furniture. The villa is surrounded by a typical Mediterranean garden and a large stone terrace which joins seamlessly the pool and the sunbathing areas with the dining loggia, set against an inspiring backdrop of undulating countryside.
The nearest restaurant is only 200 metres away, offering a pleasant alternative to dining at the villa. A few hundred metres away are all the village amenities. Spending time by the sea could not be easier; in fact rocky and sandy beaches in Monte Cofano's Nature Reserve are only ten miles away; further north is also Zingaro's spectacular Nature Reserve, not to be missed! Easy excursions from Villa Campestre should also include the ancient hilltop town of Erice, overlooking the sea, and the stunning Greek temple in Segesta. Whilst in Sicily, why not visit the island of Favignana, just off the port of Trapani. Often referred to as a paradise for scuba divers, this island still retains much of the Southern Italian timeless charm, with its old villages built around the piazza with little pavement cafes and restaurants. Cycling is the best way to explore the island.
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 of Tonnara 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 butterfly shape. During the summer there are many ferries from Trapani (about 20 minutes by hydrofoil to Favignana).
