Overview

This modern villa has an amazing pool and indescribable views. Casa d’Eraclea is about as cool as it gets … hammocks and sun-loungers dot the terraces, an infinity pool looks out over the pine-fringed coastline of the Bay of Eraclea and the sandy beach is just 500 meters away, down a private dirt road. 

Property

Casa d’Eraclea is in a quiet corner of southwest Sicily that remains largely untouched by tourism, secluded from the outside world and set against a backdrop of dramatic sea views and rugged beauty. Accessible from the main road via a flight of stone steps, the villa is perched on a hill overlooking a forest-edged sandy beach.

Outside: The real show-stopper here is the infinity pool which has the most dramatic views along the coast and across towards Africa. The garden is terraced and also has a decking area around the pool, so there are several quiet corners, scattered with sun-loungers and hammocks. The large covered terrace is perfect for relaxed al fresco meals, with a long table and chairs and a barbecue.

Inside: The villa is bright and comfortable, featuring, on the ground floor, an open-plan living-room, with dining area and kitchen corner, that leads directly out on to the terrace. This floor has a double bedroom, an additional sleeping area with a single bed and a bathroom with shower. There are two further bedrooms upstairs, a double and a single, and another bathroom with shower. The landing on the first floor is furnished with a sofa and has access to a small terrace with amazing views.

Local Sights

You are spoilt for choice for beaches in the area. Drive for 15 minutes and you will arrive at the Borgo Bonsignore beach, a great sandy spot, perfect for a day's relaxing. Another not-to-be-missed beach is the unforgettable Scala dei Turchi. With clear water, lovely sand and bright white cliffs, the Scala dei Turchi is a breathtaking beach, especially at sunset. Spend a day in the sun here. You won't regret it! The Torre Salsa Nature Reserve is also home to fantastic sandy beaches. Visit for a tranquil time spent on golden sand.

Spend the day at Sciacca, enjoying this lovely seaside town. As one of Italy's oldest spa towns, Sciacca has a whole lot of history. Visit some of the town's impressive churches and take in the views over the harbour.

Eraclea Minoa, a charming village nearby, is home to a charming archaeological park with a small museum and the remains of a Greek theatre with views overlooking the Mediterranean Sea.

Two of Sicily's most important archaeological parks are both within an hour's drive of Casa d'Eraclea. Selinunte is a marvellous spot, with evocative views over the sea and some fascinating examples of Greek architecture. The Valley of the Temples, near Agrigento, is one of Sicily's top sights, with impressive remains of seven Greek temples.


Local Experiences

There's a wealth of fun experiences to be had in the area surrounding Casa d'Eraclea, for whatever interests your group may have.

Sciacca is known throughout Sicily as one of the best place to enjoy Carnevale celebrations. However, Sciacca is a great place to visit during the spring and summer, where you can buy fresh fish to take home and cook, or enjoy a fabulous seafood lunch at one of the many restaurants with great sea views.

The area around Menfi produces some great wines. Why not book on a wine tour of a local winery. You can learn all about the wine-making process and you'll also get to have a taste!

If you have a real interest in Sicily's ancient past then a guided tour of The Valley of the Temples is a great experience. Learn about the history and the culture of this fascinating ancient town from an expert guide.

Explore the beautiful coast between Agrigento and the Scala dei Turchi from the sea. Book a private boat trip from San Leone and spend the day on the sea. Take a dip, enjoy a delicious lunch and marvel at the island's spectacular coastline.

Fans of golf need not worry: there's a top-class 18 hole golf course at the Verdura Resort, near Sciacca. Why not book a round and enjoy the course's enviable location.

In August, Loggerhead Turtles arrive at the Torre Salsa Nature Reserve to lay their eggs. It is an extraordinary sight. The nature reserve itself is gorgeous, with fantastic wildlife and scenery, and is an ideal destination for a day out at any time of the year.

Extras

The pool is open to guests from April 13th to October 26th.
The pool is available out of season for an additional charge of € 200 per week.

Due to Casa d’Eraclea’s location, close to the sea and pine forests, the villa is usually very cool and air conditioning is unnecessary even during the summer months. However, the two double bedrooms are equipped with air conditioners and the other bedrooms with ceiling fans.
