Property description

After being out for a day of shopping, sightseeing, or laying on the beach, 'Tranquillita'' may be the first word that pops into your head as you enter the private gate.

Enjoy the light breezes and fresh air of our beautiful valley in Fraginesi. Sit at the table under an olive tree and sip your cappuccino, close your eyes and listen for the tinkling bells of a distant sheep herd, or the chimes of the church on the mountain.

Located between Castellammare and Scopello it's only a short drive to countless historic locations, beautiful beaches and fantastic restaurants, in the heart of one of the most beautiful scenic areas of Sicily.

If cooking is your passion, enjoy our fully equipped kitchen of this newly constructed home and the spacious veranda. The shops in town have all your fresh ingredients. (Saturday is market day)..The bread and pastry shops are numerous. Some think they make the best bread in Italy.

Relax here and make this your home away from home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Caroline born in Arkansas, moved to New York at age 7. Practiced in the professions of interior designer and real estate broker. Owned and operated a B&B with husband. Both now retired and live in Italy and Long Island. We travel a great deal to Sicily where we maintain a second home. Caroline enjoys cooking and being with large family. Loves to paint using the mediums of oil and acrylics with most scenes currently of European landscapes. Nicolo' (Nick) was born in Castellammare del Golfo, on the island of Sicily and moved to upstate New York at age 11. Attended primary school in Endicott, NY, and received a Bachelor of Science Degree at Florida State University. Served three years in the U.S.M.C. with tours in the Caribbean and Eastern Mediterranean. Worked in a professional capacity for 40 years in the fields of accounting and finance. Nick and Sue purchased a newly constructed house in 2005 in Nick's birthplace where he has many relatives and friends with whom we keep close contact. We spend as much time as possible in Sicily.

Why the Owner Chose Castellammare del Golfo:
Nicolo' (who was born here) and Caroline have been visiting this area for 30 years. The area has a wonderful mix of all that a vacationer might enjoy in a southern European location. It has a wonderful setting at the head of a wide gulf in the Mediterranean, a nearby international airport, several major cities within an hour drive. The house sits in a green valley and is surrounded by verdant mountains, blue sea, the Zingaro National Forest Park, and the city of Castellammare del Golfo with its historic past. During the summer and shoulder seasons direct flights are available from New York to Palermo.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Within 10 minutes drive we reach Zingaro National Park where we hike, picnic, swim or visit the nature museums. We take boat rides along the magnificent coast to Scopello. We take a five minute ride to town to eat freshly caught fish at a restaurant overlooking the Gulf. At home on the property, if we just want to relax, it's quiet and tranquil sitting under an olive tree sipping a chilled glass of wine and tasting locally made cheese. The ample property allows privacy and relaxation.
