This exclusive villa, with private swimming pool and breathtaking views over the countryside, is just a few kilometers from Trapani, an elegant and refined town renowned for its beautiful historic center with cafés, restaurants, boutiques, and lively bars. The villa resides among lush gardens with olive and lemon trees, and exotic Mediterranean plants. Large terraces provide inspiring views from Erice to the salt pans and across the sea to the Egadi islands. Restored according to its traditional roots, the property evokes the aristocratic elegance of old Sicily. The light-infused and refined interior (with all modern conveniences) is furnished with antiques and stylishly decorated to create a warm, cozy atmosphere.

In the last few years Trapani, the pride of Sicily\'s west coast, has been restored to its original architectural splendor. Traffic is not allowed in the majority of its tiny streets, alleys and squares, enabling the old town center to thrive as a traditional, European salon. A stop here in one of the many cafés and restaurants is a must after admiring the splendid palaces of Cavaretta, Riccio di Morana, and Lucatelli, and walking along the sea by the beautiful promenade on the Mura di Tramontana. This Sicilian city is well connected to Europe through the Rayanairs low cost flights, and is also a perfect starting point to discover wonderful landscapes and towns that are just few kilometers away. Local charms include the salt pans with their dramatic windmills, and the Natural Reserve of the Isole dello Stagnone, a wide lagoon with the island of Mothia, a Phoenician colony from the 8th century BC. Endless vineyards producing the rare Marsala wine stretch out in this dream-like landscape, encapsulating the rural soul of this charming side of Sicily.Get the full listing »
