About the villa
Surrounded by large and lush terraces, and raised a little for fantastic views, this rural retreat looks out over the countryside from Erice to the salt pans, and across the sea as far as the Egadi islands. With the warmth of a family home which has evolved over time, the villa’s décor is a blend of classic antiques on traditional rugs, modern art on crisp white walls, and rather rustic raftered ceilings. On the ground floor, the living room is open to an elegant dining room, and the well equipped kitchen could seem even better with (pre-bookable) cook service.
Four bedrooms share the first floor with a small sitting room, where a Juliet balcony faces sweeping views, and a staircase leads to the top floor bedroom, comfortably furnished with a French bed. Spacious and elegantly styled and all with air conditioning, most of the bedrooms also have en suite bath or shower room.
A particular feature of the bedrooms is the original Sicilian floor tiles which were restored during the renovation of the villa. Outside, the generous swimming pool basks in a spacious sunny terrace, with loungers in the sun and little tables under olive tree shade. The dining area with table and benches is at the rear of the property adjacent to the kitchen. Sundowners can be adjoined on the panoramic terrace adjacent to the gardens of the villa. A local shop in Paceco is 2km away, and Trapani’s sandy beach, bars, restaurants and boutiques are just 9km from the villa. This is a very convenient spot, within easy reach of beaches locally or at San Vito Lo Capo, Scopello and day trips to the Egadi islands, Erice, Trapani, Palermo and the temples of Segesta and Selinunte.

Selinunte and Western Sicily
While still having a rich Italian heritage in food, history and culture, the west of Sicily has a noticeable African influence. Even with this, this area is still famous for an Italian tradition – winemaking – and is the home of the sweet desert wine, Marsala. The nightlife is something to experience, with family run restaurants popping up on the streets in the evening, showcasing a menu of freshly caught seafood, and other local dishes. But don’t forget about the days. Whatever interests you, there is something to see - from thermal baths and beaches to island trips and historical monuments.
