Torre Salsa

Located in the heart of the Nature Reserve of Torre Salsa, a WWF sanctuary, near the Reserve’s splendid beach. Set amidst century-old olive trees with fantastic views over the sea. Suitable for couples and families.

The house is in the Nature Reserve of Torre Salsa, a WWF protected area and one of Sicily’s most enchanting and uncontaminated spots. This south-west side of the island overlooks the splendid Mediterranean Sea ranging in colours from emerald green to cobalt blue due to the rich and varied seabed. The beach of Torre Salsa is only a few hundreds metres from the house and to get there all you need do is walk or ride along the path through the wild and unspoilt nature amongst chalk cliffs and dwarf palmettos. Its ranking as a Nature Reserve in 1996 placed tight restrictions on construction on this part of the island making exceptons only for some pre - existing buildings that were used by farmers for agricultural purposes. This house in fact, was once a humble peasants’ dwelling before being converted into a modern and comfortable house. If you're a peace-seeker or nature-lover, you've found the ideal place!

Property details

The main house “Mirto” is a single-storey villa located in the middle of two hectares of olive grove that gently slopes towards the sea. From the garden, three steps lead to a spacious patio area with two long, comfortable built-in sofas and loads of armchairs and cushions so you can enjoy the picturesque surroundings in comfort. The patio leads into both the dining area with glorious double window overlooking the valley and the super new kitchen. On the north side, in a cooler part of the house, are two double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. In one of these rooms is a special beanbag that can be used as a single bed for kids or teenagers. A staircase leads up to a roof-terrace and breathtaking views! Next to the main house is the small independent house “Lavanda” consisting of a kitchen-living room, a master bedroom with bathroom and toilet. Here too is a marvellous patio overlooking Torre Salsa Reserve and the sea. The patio is furnished with built-in sofas, sun beds and beach chairs as well as a barbecue and outdoor shower!

Surrounding Area

Torre Salsa

If it's a seaside holiday in a secluded area you're after then this is the ideal spot. The whispering of the wind and the chirping of migratory birds are the only sounds you'll hear while soaking up the Sicilan sun. Just walk along the narrow path from the house through olive groves, vineyards, prickly-pear cacti and bamboo canes to get to the wonderful “Funciatella” beach. Like the surrounding area, this beach is also protected by WWF Sicily. Here, the loggerhead turtles “caretta-carretta” come ashore to breed during the nesting season. The water is crystal clear and the best thing is it's never crowded, in July you may well be the only person on the beach! For those who like exploring there's also plenty to see in the surrounding area. We recommend the Valle dei Templi in Agrigento, Selinunte’s archaeological park, Sciacca and its thermal baths, Trapani’s Salt Pans and Paceco and the numerous oases and reserves with beaches in this area such as Scala dei Turchi in Realmonte and the Platani river Reserve, the beaches of Eraclea Minoa and Contrada San Giorgio. You may however, end up spending all your time in the Nature Reserve of Torre Salsa. A quick tip- the road from the state highway to the house (about 2kms) that cuts through the Reserve has unforgettable views but is quite rough. Even though a normal car is feasible we suggest you hire a 4x4.
