Badia Tower

Hopelessly romantic, a honeymoon tower for two

"...The Tower of Love, the perfect spot to let down your hair, a 16th-century tower for two that stands alone in the gardens of an estate in Sicily, within easy reach of the Greek sites at Selinunte and Segesta, and the beaches of San Vito lo Capo..."  The Guardian

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.
