Compact and contemporary inside, it is Villa Ninfea’s outside space that really sets it apart from other holiday villas. With a large pool, extensive green lawns and several absolutely lovely al fresco dining areas, this is a real find for a couple or small family. Beyond the garden, the vineyards of Menfi, archaeological sites and laid-back Sicilian beach life at its best.


In a peaceful location in the heart of one of Sicily’s biggest wine production areas, Ninfea is an attractive villa that has been designed with a marked attention to detail, from the chromatic lights in the pool to the outdoor kitchen.

Outside: The pool and garden are easily big enough for a party of at least twelve, with large expanses of lawn and several eating areas. The saltwater pool is longer than most villa pools, with a hydrojet and fantastic lighting system, and surrounded by a lovely paved area. A hammock is found, perfectly positioned between two trees, for complete relaxation. Overlooking all of this splendour is a large shaded raised terrace, with table and chairs, just outside the villa. A separate dining area near the pool basks in the shade of a gazebo and has a built-in brick barbecue with chimney and an outdoor kitchen area. There is also an outdoor bathroom. Children and adults alike will also be thrilled with the table football, table tennis and games found in the garden.

Enter via the terrace directly into the simple but pleasant living/dining room, with a sofa and table and chairs. From here, an archway leads through to the kitchen and close by, the attractive modern bathroom which has a large shower cubicle. The spacious double bedroom and more compact bunk bedroom both overlook the pool and garden.


Local Sights

The south-west of Sicily has many super sights that will make any holiday enjoyable, and Ninfea's location if perfect for exploring the local area.

Ninfea is also not too far from the majestic archaeological park at Selinunte, which makes for a memorable day out. Eraclea Minoa is also nearby, with a fabulous beach and a charming archaeological site that includes a wonderful Greek theatre. Drive for an hour and you will reach the Valley of the Temples, near Agrigento, Sicily's largest and most impressive archaeological park.

For lovers of ancient culture head to Mazara del Vallo and see the Dancing Satyr: a magnificent ancient bronze sculpture that was found in the sea just off the west coast in the 1990s. The sculpture is now held in the Museo del Satiro, a specially dedicated museum.

About an hour's drive from Ninfea is the lovely town Marsala. With charming streets and plenty of lovely wine bars selling its famous wine, Marsala is a super place to visit. The sunsets at the nearby salt pans are truly spectacular so why not spend an evening enjoying an aperitivo in this ancient and unusual landscape.

Of course, the beaches are wonderful in the south-west. Porto Palo beach is only a five minute drive from Ninfea, and is one of Sicily's most highly acclaimed beaches. What could be better than relaxing on the sand in such gorgeous surroundings?

Local Experiences

The nearest bigger town, Sciacca, has a beautiful harbour and is known as being a centre of fabulous fresh fish. Buy some in the picturesque harbour, straight from the boats and take home to enjoy. If that sounds like too much work then enjoy a meal in one of the several great local restaurants.

If you love wine then you are certainly in the right area, as some of Sicily's best wine is produced around Menfi. Most of the wineries now offer tours of the vineyards and the cellars. For those with an interest in wine - or for those who enjoy a glass or two - this is a wonderful and fun way to spend a day.

To really get learn about Sicily's incredible Greek past why not book a guided tour of the Valley of the Temples. You will get a real feel for the importance of Sicily during ancient times and will be amazed by the impressive remains of the ancient city.

The beaches in the area are phenomenal and a day or two at the beach is sure to go down well with your party. For a great lunch at Porto Palo head to Da Vittorio. With spectacular views and delicious food, this is a favourite with tourists and locals alike.

For those of you who would like to enjoy a Sicilian feast in the comfort of your own villa, then why not Book a Cook for the evening. It's the perfect way to enjoy delicious local Sicilian specialities without having to leave the villa.

Foodies will also love our At Home with the Sicilians experience. Visit a Sicilian home and enjoy a fabulous meal prepared for you. Experience real Sicilian hospitality in an authentic environment with delicious food!


The pool is open to guests from 18th April to 24th October.

Please note: There is another small villa on the property. This building is unoccupied and your complete privacy is guaranteed when staying at Ninfea.

Local restaurants Il Vigneto and Da Vittorio are highly recommended, particularly the latter which gets the thumbs-up from celebrity chef Giorgio Locatelli in the Guardian.
