Overview

This is the ultimate romantic escape, a pretty romantic tower for two in the midst of scented gardens filled with leafy vegetation, towering palms and brightly-coloured oleanders. Shops, bars and restaurants are nearby and the centre of Marsala, with its famous wineries, just 2 kms away.

Property

The Badia Tower comes close to resembling a child’s drawing of a fairy tale castle, with arched windows and a crenellated tower but in the place of forbidding forests, the fragrant Mediterranean gardens of the Badia Estate. The owners of this extraordinary estate live in the main house and have always been delightfully welcoming to all their guests.

Outside: An oleander-bordered pathway leads across the huge gardens to the Tower. At the back of the Tower, there is a lovely private terraced area, with a table and chairs, parasol, barbecue and separate seating area, which is perfect for al fresco meals or simply sitting and soaking up the atmosphere.

Inside: The décor is simple and bright, with white-washed walls, terracotta tiling and pretty blue furnishings. The living space comprises of one main living area, with a small dining-table and chairs and a kitchen corner. From here, steps lead up to the bedroom and bathroom with shower.

Area

Local sights

The Badia Tower is in a wonderfully peaceful location, in an area renowned for its lush vegetation and tranquillity, but very convenient for getting around. 

Shops, bars, restaurants and tennis courts are within easy reach and getting to the historical centre of Marsala is easy as the main Trapani-Marsala road is close by. 

South of Marsala, Signorino is a long sandy beach, with Blue Flag status, approximately 15 minutes by car from the villa. Facilities include beach bars and restaurants and you can choose between free or lido-style private beaches, where sun beds and umbrellas are available for hire.

Potter down the coast, towards Sciacca, to the port of Mazara del Vallo which, with a history of Phoenician, Arab and Norman inhabitants, offers an interesting blend of architecture, art and culture. Take a stroll around its bustling fishing harbour and through its charismatic Arabic Kasbah.


Local experiences

Kite and windsurfing is available at the Lo Stagnone Nature Reserve, the best place for kiting in Sicily and particularly suitable for beginners thanks to the lagoon’s shallow waters and breezy conditions.

Head inland to the medieval hilltop town of Erice for the best views of the Egadi islands; then take to the waters to see the islands close-up. Boat trips to the Egadi Islands depart from Marsala harbour, taking around an hour to reach Favignana. Fishing boat trips are also available.

Extras

Badia Tower was built in the 19th century by a Sala family member - perhaps inspired by his German wife. For a time it was used as a doctor's clinic, with a white flag flying signalling the doctor's presence. After this it became the home of the property's guardian and was then turned into a guest house, as you see it today.

The owners of Badia tower will greet guests when they arrive and welcome them with a traditional aperitivo on the patio and tour of their beautiful house. They will be happy to answer any questions about Marsala, the nearby sights and their historical villa.
