Overview

A newly built villa in the heart of west Sicily with spectacular views, comfortable furnishings and great outdoor spaces.

Property

Outside: The covered patio - with outstanding views out to the sea and Monte Cofano - is furnished with tables and chairs perfect for enjoying al fresco meals, which can be prepared in the garden's fantastic BBQ area which includes a beautiful wood-burning oven. Potter down some steps and you will reach the garden with its saltwater pool, sunloungers and stylish gazebo.

Inside: The interior is simple, but charming with light coming in from French windows that lead to the gorgeous covered patio found in both the bright sitting room and the practical kitchen. The living area is charmingly furnished with a sofa, armchairs and a small dining table. A large bathroom with a shower is also found on the ground floor.
The first floor has three bedrooms. The light and airy master bedroom, with a double bed, has access to a small balcony that overlooks the astonishing scenery below. The other two bedrooms both have French beds with one bedroom leading out to a terrace that is connected to the master bedroom's balcony. All three bedrooms share one spacious bathroom with a shower.

Local Sights

To enjoy the beach you need not travel far: the closest beach is less than 1 km away. Spend lazy days by the sea at Lido Baia Cornino, or Lido Aquarius, where you can rent sunloungers and umbrellas or enjoy the free areas of the same beach. Buguto beach and Macari beach are also popular local spots.

San Vito Lo Capo is only a 20 minute drive from the villa, and is one of Sicily's most famous beach towns thanks to its incredible sandy beach, lively bars and restaurants and fun atmosphere.

Itaca is also within easy distance of Trapani and stunning hill-top Erice. Visit Trapani with its elegant city centre that is full of restaurants, bars and shops. Wander along the ancient city walls and take in the sea views and then take the cable car up to Erice, a beautiful medieval town with winding streets, delicious almond pastries and utterly breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, mountains and Aegadian Islands.

You'll be spoilt for choice if you are a lover of nature. Close to Itaca is Monte Cofano - the beautiful mountain that dominates the view from the villa. Spend the day exploring the coastal tracks - some suitable for hiking, some for cycling - and take in the lovely scenery at this wonderful nature reserve. For truly spectacular nature and pristine bays then head to Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, accessible from San Vito lo Capo or Scopello.

Marsala is about an hour's drive from Itaca, and is worth a visit. The town is famous for its wine production and you will find many wine bars in the charming town centre. The saltpans between Marsala and Trapani are a sight to behold. For a romantic moment enjoy an aperitivo as the sun goes down; the sunsets are unforgettable!

A little further afield is Sicily's capital, Palermo. This dynamic city is full of things to discover, from fantastic architecture to wonderful food, with a fun atmosphere thrown in as well.


Local Experiences

Nearby San Vito Lo Capo has a range of fun events throughout the year. Most famous is the Cous Cous Fest that takes place every September. People flock to this beach town during this festival to taste delicious varieties of cous cous, enjoy the live music and soak up the dynamic international atmosphere. There's also the fun and colourful International Kite festival to enjoy in early summer.

Catch a glimpse into the past by visiting the Mangiapane Cave, close to the villa. The amazing natural structure was inhabited until the 1950s and is now home to a fascinating Living Museum, which is usually open during the weekends in the summer. Visit to see what rural Sicilian life was like in the past, as well as to enjoy a breathtaking natural sight.

West Sicily produces some fabulous wines, so why not visit a winery and enjoy a tour and tasting? This is a great way to get under the skin of the Sicily's wine culture and is always an enjoyable experience for oenophiles!

The food in Sicily is wonderful, and a holiday at Itaca will give you many opportunities to get to know Sicilian food culture. Book a Cook and a local cook will visit the villa and prepare a delicious Sicilian meal for you. You could also take part in an in-villa cookery class to learn the tricks of the trade, or perhaps arrange a Street Food and Market tour in Palermo to sample the bustling city's famous traditional delicacies.

A boat trip is an enjoyable way to discover Sicily's wondrous coast. Take a day trip from Trapani to the beautiful Aegandian Islands or visit San Vito Lo Capo and take a boat excursion along the Lo Zingaro coast to Scopello.
