A house that was built specifically so a whole family could come together and be on holiday, particularly at harvest time. Now you can do the same in this elegant pink townhouse just a short drive from Marsala city centre and the beach. Architect Maxime and Margherita, whose family home it is, are interesting hosts: suites are named after Margherita’s grandparents and the house is filled with family antiques and memorabilia which they love to share. Breakfast is served under a porch or on outside tables in the garden – homemade jams, freshly-baked cakes and typical Marsala bread, gorgeous Sicilian fruits. Dinners can be booked and there is a strong emphasis on organic vegetables and fruits, local and sustainable fish, rich Sicilian wines. Wander the manicured garden with its white walls, plush lawn, palms and a sommacco tree – very typical of this hot dry climate. Explore the western corner of Sicily from here: Saline di Mozia (salt flats) has the most beautiful sunsets, Marsala beaches can be reached by bike, so pack a picnic and your swimsuit, an hour away is the Segesta temple or the Riserva Naturale dello Zingaro.
