Overview

An excellent choice for families, close to the beach and perfect for exploring western Sicily. Renée is an attractive villa, with ample space inside and out and enhanced by traditional Sicilian features including gleaming terracotta floors and stunning Caltagirone ceramics.

Property

Shaded by towering palms, and scented by huge clusters of rosemary, the large white villa sits amongst magnificent Sicilian countryside, with dark brown shutters to keep the sun at bay. Although built fairly recently, traditional local features and materials ensure that the atmosphere is distinctly Sicilian.

Outside: A large covered terrace, which extends the whole width of the house and has views across the countryside towards the sea, is a great spot for al fresco meals. From here, steps lead down to the pool area which is gated for those with young children. A poolside covered gazebo provides welcome shade in the heat of the day, and there is a second sheltered terrace area, with table, chairs and a barbecue, at the back of the house.

Inside: Terracotta floors throughout the villa feel cool underfoot and colourful patterned Caltagirone ceramic tiling dominates the kitchen and both bathrooms. On the ground floor, an attractive Sicilian-style kitchen leads to the open-plan sitting-room, which has a comfy seating area with open fire, and a separate dining-area.

The upper floor comprises two double bedrooms (one with wonderful sea views and an ensuite bathroom with a bath), a lovely twin room and second bathroom with a shower. All the bedrooms are simply furnished with crisp white linen on the beds.

Area

Local Sights

Renée is equidistant between two fabulous seaside towns: Scopello and Castellamare del Golfo. The pretty village of Scopello is charming and there are wonderful beaches nearby as well as the famous Tonnara di Scopello. The water is so inviting, you will want to dive straight in! Castellammare del Golfo is a slightly larger town and is well set-up for visitors with great restaurants, a good selection of shops and fun bars as well as a long sandy beach.

Renée is only an hour away from Palermo and the trip is definitely worth it. Sicily's capital city is an exciting place to visit with lots of great sights, museums, superb food and lively atmosphere.

You can also easily reach Trapani from the villa, a sweet little town on the far west of the island. Above this town lies the medieval town of Erice. Winding streets, atmospheric castles and magnificent views over the Aegadian Islands sum this town up. You will also find restaurants and shops with extremely tasty food. Take the cable car from Trapani or enjoy the spectacular drive.

The Greek temple at Segesta is a highlight for many visitors in Sicily, and is often considered one of the most picturesque Greek ruins found anywhere. At only half an hour from the villa, it is well worth the trip.


Local Experiences

Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and some authentic food in Scopello - you must try both Pane Cunzatu and Cassatelle for a true taste of the area. Locals travel far and wide for these two treats so don't miss out!

For a great day out why not go on a boat trip to the beautiful Aegadian Islands. These three islands, found off the coast of Trapani, are a super destination for a day trip and have many gorgeous beaches and picturesque spots to discover. You could also rent a boat and explore the spectacular bays and beaches of the Zingaro Nature Reserve near Scopello.

We can help you arrange guided tours in Palermo. Get a taste for the wonderful food culture found in Sicily's capital with a market or street food tour. If art and architecture interest you then book a walking tour of the city and you will be amazed with the treasures you discover.

Guests at Renée can also enjoy home cooked meals made by an local cook with our Book a Cook service or can take part in a cookery class, in the villa or in a local cookery school.

The pretty seaside village of San Vito Lo Capo - with its amazing white sandy beach - hosts an annual Cous Cous Festival in September. This event is a wonderful opportunity to taste some fantastic food, and enjoy the truly vibrant and international atmosphere that fills the town during the event.

Extras

The pool is open to guests from 30th March to 26th October.

Renèe is a pet friendly property.
