Sciacca

A place where the senses are enhanced: perfumes, colours and odours of a distant, natural, solitary and unpolluted place. A hideaway by the Mediterranean sea.

One of the few remaining solitary and secluded places along the Sicilian coastline with a small coral sand beach, beside another of fine white sand. Two “dammusi” (cave houses) sit, immersed in nature, looking out on the headland and a coral, crystal-clear sea. Ideal for a few days of solitude in the shade of a pine tree along the seashore, enjoying the wonders of nature. We have spent several years travelling around Sicily to discover the best places for you. This is one of our favourites; we could call it love at first sight. Soak up the magical evening atmosphere and experience spectacular stargazing at the seashore, listening to the sweet sounds of nature.

Property details

The property is immersed in Mediterranean greenery composed of numerous native plants, positioned on the lowest strip of a slope which descends gently from the mountain to the sea. A well-kept flower garden, rich in spontaneous vegetation with various types of vegetation and Eucalyptus trees and maritime pines, surrounds the house. The two main stone buildings called Dammusi (characteristic of the nearby island of Pantelleria) are connected by another stone unit. Outside, behind the house, sits an oven with barbecue and a space with dining table made of typical Sicilian ceramics. The interior of the first dammuso contains a big living room where there's a dining table and couch. This dammuso is connected to the other by a stone unit furnished with a modern kitchen. In the other dammuso there is a double bedroom with bathroom, a small bedroom with bunk bed and another bathroom with shower. To the front of the house, on the sea side, there's a large terrace with sea view, comfy couches and armchairs. On the left of the terrace, a path leads to the first pebbly and sandy beach (the morphology depends on the season). Behind the beach is a large space in which to sunbathe or shelter in shade of the Tamarisk trees. At the back of this space, there is a shower with hot and cold water. Crossing easily a few flat rocks you come to the large and beautiful neighbouring beach, almost always half-empty, of very fine light grey sand.

Surrounding Area

Sciacca

The choice of this remote and out of the way place that faces directly on to a beautiful beach in south-west Sicily means you have chosen an all-round sea holiday. The nearby area also offers several interesting sites worth visiting. The city of Sciacca , just a 10 minute drive eastwards, has a lovely historical centre, a characteristic port and is famous for its carnival which is the most important of Sicily. The most interesting sites, not to be missed, are Valley of the Temples, Selinunte and Segesta . Other places to visit are the Saltmines of Trapani and Paceco, with the archaeological island of Mozia, the medieval city of Erice, Scopello and Tuna factory as well as Corleone famous for its Mafia connections. A must-see are the famous wineries including the historical ones of Florio, Pellegrino and Donnafugata. The city of Palermo is less than an hour away by car and has plenty of truly not-to-be-missed treasures to visit; Monreale is close by and worth seeing for its famous Cathedral. For golf lovers, the Resort di Verdura is less than 30km from the property and you'll delight in its splendid two 18-hole courses where you may wish to have a lesson with the English speaking golf instructor. The resort also has restaurants, swimming pools, spa and a beautiful beach. Other beautiful beaches in the area include the Turkish steps, Eraclea Minoa and Torre Salsa (a WWF site).
