About the property

Beautiful panoramic farmhouse for 14 persons with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms

Immersed in a Mediterranean garden offering stunning views on the sea, Villa Elena is an ancient farmhouse completely restored and located on the northwest coast of Sicily, 7 km from the picturesque port of Castellammare del Golfo and 7 km from the Zingaro Nature Reserve. It is a large house divided into two adjoining houses which can accommodate up to 14 people. The 3000 square meters of land surrounding the villa ensures privacy even during the month of August. The coves of the beautiful bay of Cala Bianca are at a walking distance and Guidaloca beach is at 4 kilometers. The first house includes a large living room with a sofa bed for 2 people if necessary, a modern and well equipped kitchen, two double bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The second house has got a large living room with a large table that can accommodate all the occupants. A staircase leads to a mezzanine with the first double bedroom. There is also a second soda-bed for two persons. An arch opens onto the kitchen made in masonry and decorated with beautiful local ceramics. Finally, a corridor leads to the sleeping area with a second and a third double bedrooms and the bathroom with shower. The two houses are joined by a large terrace with panoramic views on the surrounding hills and the sea The terrace is equipped with two dining areas and close to them, the covered barbecue area will be the perfect place where to prepare grilled local fish. There is also a wood burning oven. A beautiful staircase leads to the large pool (10x5 meters) from where the view on the sea and the Gulf of Castellammare is beautiful, a great place for happy hour!. The poolside is made with local stone and is very large so to move safely around the pool. It is equipped with sunbeds and large umbrellas. The villa is fully air conditioned with cool air in summer and warm air in winter. In addition, a wood stove emits a pleasant warmth during the cool season. Finally, it is equipped with a Wi-Fi connection. The geographical location and the proximity to the highway at 7 km allows to reach easily all cultural and touristic sites of the western part of the island. The property is located halfway between Palermo airport (Falcone e Borsellino) and Trapani airport (Birgi).

Belle villa, bien située

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions 3 familles (6 adultes, 7 enfants de 8 à 17 ans) et avons passé un agréable séjour dans la villa. Elle est dans un environnement très calme, à l'écart de la route, accessible par un chemin non goudronné mais parfaitement praticable à basse vitesse. Les courtes explications à l'accueil (on sent que les samedis de Nathalie ne sont pas de tout repos) pourraient être un peu plus détaillées, mais Nathalie et la propriétaire ont été réactives pour régler les petits problèmes pendant la semaine (lave-linge, couverts et verres à réapprovisionner, lampe de chevet...). La villa était très propre, très fonctionnelle (avec un petit bémol pour l'accès à la mezzanine par une échelle de secours). Les extérieurs, notamment l'espace autour de la piscine, sont enchanteurs et conformes aux photos. La villa est très bien située pour rayonner dans la région (nous sommes même allés jusqu'à Agrigente) et Nathalie peut donner plein d'informations pour profiter de la région. La seule vraie contrainte a été la cohabitation avec les guêpes, particulièrement nombreuses en cette saison, et qui empêchaient tout repas à l'extérieur le midi.

A noter la super pizzeria New York en haut à droite du chemin.

Owner's Response: Je vous remercie pour votre appréciation sur la villa et je suis très heuruse de voir que votre séjour à Villa Elena s'est très bien passé. Le samedi est en effet le jour consacré à l'accueil des nouveaux locataires et je suis parfois contrainte à limiter le temps consacré aux explications sur les activités et les excursions à faire aux alentours de la villa lorsque les locataires arrivent en retard à cause d'un retard de leur avion ou de leur bateau, ceci afin de ne faire attendre personne. C'est la raison pour laquelle toutes les villas que je propose disposent d'un livre d'informations, que vous avez jugé fort utile, qui contient des conseils pratiques sur les environs de la villa, une description détaillée de toutes les excursions à faire dans la Sicile Occidentale ainsi que de nombreux conseils sur les meilleurs restaurants, les activités , les magasins, les caves à visiter etc........ Je garde un eccellent souvenir de votre famille et de vos amis et j''espère avoir le plaisir de vous acceuillir de nouveau en Sicile !

Une oasis de paix !

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer mes amis et moi-même une semaine inoubliable dans cette superbe villa. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le calme, la beauté du jardin, la piscine, la vue sur la mer, les repas pris tous ensemble sur la terrasse et le magnifique barbecue ! La maison est très confortable. Nous avons également apprécié la privacy rendue possible par la division en deux unités de cette villa. Chacun était à son aise. La disponibilité de Nathalie (que nous connaissions déjà) est un ultérieur atout à cette location et ses conseils toujours aussi précieux.

You will find some restaurants and tipical 'trattoria' where to taste the delicious sicilian specialities in the small and beautiful medieval village of Scopello and along the delightful harbour of Castellammare del Golfo. There are a lot of places where to have a bath in the sea:the small beach close to the villa; the large beaches with life-guards close to Scopello and Castellammare; the small and uncontaminated creeks of the natural reserve.You will be welcomed by a person who speaks four languages and who has been working in turism in Sicily for 18 years. She will give you all the information you need to organize your holidays in the best way. In the meantime, we invite you to have a look at our "Guide to western Sicily" which you will find on our website Dreamsicilyvillas.
