Selinunte

Noble aristocratic Sicilian house full of charm and beauty. Loads of space both indoors and outdoors. Gorgeous patio facing the garden with Mediterranean plants, big swimming pool. Suitable for groups and families.

Torre Selinus is an aristocratic house built around an ancient watchtower in the territory of Castelvetrano. It is located close to the Archaeological Park of Selinunte and the gorgeous beaches in this area. The property lies at the foot of a hill cultivated with citrus and olive trees and the house is surrounded by palm and cypress trees. This corner of western Sicily is renowned for its production of high-quality, much sought-after extra-virgin oil which is extracted from a variety of olive called the Nocellara del Belice olive from Castelvetrano. Extensive lawns provide a fitting backdrop to the inviting pool and a small pond with papyrus and bamboo. Old and new furniture exist side by side creating a strikingly individual effect.

Property details

The house spreads over three floors; the ground floor is occupied by a spacious living room with a fireplace, sofas, and large windows that open onto the cool shaded patio opposite the swimming pool. The same floor also has a Sicilian-style kitchen that retains a traditional wood-burning oven, a large dining room and a bathroom. On the first floor, there are two twin rooms with en-suite bathroom, both are very large; a suite with a small sitting room and single sofa bed (comfortable and 90cm wide) and in a separate environment the double room, with an external related bathroom; another triple room with double bed and single sofa bed in a single environment, in which the size ensures its occupants a little privacy (the single bed is set aside from the other bed) with an en-suite bathroom. The two twin rooms have two small balconies with view over the countryside. On the second floor, there is another twin room with en-suite bathroom. In all, there are two double beds and the others are single beds, to join when required. The layout can be changed to meet the needs of the customers.

Surrounding Area

Selinunte

The house is immersed in a 10-hectare olive grove that has been producing oil for decades and is very close to the town of Castelvetrano. Just a few kilometres away is one of the most picturesque and history-laden places in Sicily: the ancient remains of Selinunte which is now an archaeological park of great historical interest. Selinunte is situated on the coast near stretches of sandy beaches in what is still a genuinely unspoilt area with sublime views over the sea. Beaches such as the WWF oasis in Torre Salsa and Punta Granitola are partially protected by Environmental groups. The location of this house is ideal as a base for exploring the western side of the island. We highly recommend you visit Trapani's Salt Pans and Paceco, the medieval town of Erice, the theatre and temples in Segesta, the lively town of Sciacca (also famous for its Carnival and thermal baths), Marsala and its historic Wineries such as Florio and Pellegrino. An excursion to San Vito Lo Capo, Makari and the scenic (and unique) Tuna fishery in Scopello are musts too. A little further afield is the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and the Scala dei Turchi in Realmonte- a pure white rocky cliff overlooking the sea with blindingly white sandy beaches. Another destination not to be missed is the Egadi islands, you will enjoy a day trip to any of the islands but the most renowned is Favignana. Regular daily hydrofoils depart from Trapani's harbour and get you there in about 20 minutes.
