This modern villa is set on a vast agricultural estate but is only a five-minute drive from Castelvetrano. Friendly house manager Massimo will greet you and show you around – ask about vineyard tours and where to get the best local food.
A welcome basket of typical Sicilian products includes fruit, local bread, biscuits, wine and olive oil. Cook together in the kitchen or use the barbecue and eat out on the shaded porch facing the garden and swimming pool. The nearest restaurant is a simple trattoria serving authentic food and there are plenty more options in Castelvetrano.
The main attraction here is the Greek archaeological site of Selinunte, just a ten-minute drive away, but you can also easily explore western Sicily – Agrigento, Palermo and Trapani are all within an hour’s drive. Good beaches and authentic fishing villages are a ten-minute drive away.
