Peace and quiet at Favignana with gorgeous view and sunset from the veranda...
One cannot find a more relaxed location a short drive from the "city centre".
Fantastic house with all one needs with several bedrooms with en-suite bathroom.
A wonderful veranda with a fantastic sea-view... no better place than in the deck-chair watching the sunset...
Walking distance to a lovely pebble beach for a swim in a quiet lagoon...
The Island and its city centre is gorgeous with plenty of excellent resturants, cafe's and one drive across the Island and its spectacular views with ease.
Highly recommended house
BEST SUNSETS ON THE ISLAND!
I had the pleasure of staying at this Villa in Favignana with my good friend Rosalba who is from Palermo and knows the area really well. It was my first time in Favignana and I fell in love with the island and more so with the Villa. It was magnificently located with outstanding open views of the seaside, incredible sunsets. The villa has all the mordern amenities and has a great terrace which surrounds the entire house. The Terrace is where we stayed the most , sipping a glass of wine, reading a book , enjoying a romantic sunset or just having a dinner or lunch. I will go back and will recommend this property. The owner, Marcella was very hospitable and speaks several languages, including perfect English, French and of course Italian amongst other. Hope to visit the Villa again.
Favignana is a commune including three islands (Favignana, Marettimo and Levanzo) of the Aegadian Islands, southern Italy. It is situated approximately 7 kilometres (4 miles) west of the coast of Sicily, between Trapani and Marsala, the coastal area where the Stagnone Lagoon and the international airport of Trapani, are sited.
The island is famous for its tuna fisheries and is now a popular tourist destination with frequent hydrofoil connections to the mainland.
The major attractions of the island are its heavenly bays that are all different from one another and all unforgettable. The traveller encounters golden sandy beaches like Cala Azzurra, Lido Burrone, the Calamoni, or pebble sandy beaches at Punta Lunga, Preveto, Faraglioni and Punta Sottile where it is possible to see beautiful and breathtaking sunsets. The place, due to the cove, is perfect for snorkeling. Cala Rossa is particularly famous for its blue-turquoise water, from which the rocks emerge. There are also rocky areas like Grotta Perciata, Punta Fanfalo or the Cavallo for those who like diving. It is possible to do underwater diving according to ones trained ability. The tourists meet up with a range of activities.
The caves of tuff are, without doubt, rich in History and they are real masterpieces obtained by the work and skills of the old quarrymen called “pirriaturi”. The more impressive caves are in Scalo Cavallo, Cala Rossa, and Bue Marino. Real works of art typical of this place are the Ipogei Gardens where fruit trees, planted in a cave, are surrounded by walls of tuff in order to protect them from the winds. The results seem to be a perfect union of tuff and nature. There are many cultural attractions like the Florio Establishment museum in which houses the “pilgrim flask”, dated back to the XV century, and still today full of wine, discovered during excavation near the Bue Marino together with other amphors. Other places to visit are the Florio Palace, churches, Santa Caterina and San Giacomo Norman castles. The archeological place par excellence is Saint Nicola where there is an ancient “women’s bath” of Roman date , and the ruins of an old establishment used probably to produce the garum, a famous Roman fish sauce.
The small village of Favignana offers a relaxing and peaceful holiday away from the hectic city. Especially tasty are the typical dishes based on fresh tuna fish and local products. Naturally the sea in Favignana is unpolluted and characterized by impressive blue shaded water and by fine golden sandy beaches made pink by the coral brought forward by the marine currents.
