This stunning home in western Sicily is situated a short drive from a lovely Sicilian town called Castellamare del Golfo. The name translates to “Sea fortress on the Gulf” which stems from its medieval fortress that sits on the harbour. The town boasts a bathing beach, tennis courts and an amazing sulphur and sulphate mineral spring.

There are a number of restaurants and bars nearby, where you can get a taste of delicious Sicilian cuisine. Drive into the centre of town to find more eateries and take a brisk walk across the coastline, made up of several small shores and a large, impressive beach at Guidaloca.

The best ways to explore Sicily’s breathtaking coastline is by car; you can drive past the fascinating Scopello rocks or head to the Zingaro Reserve. The park is a protected area, where wildlife meets the sea and has an array of trails you can explore. Continue driving north up the coast until you reach the tip of Sicily, where you’ll find the bright white sand beach at San Vito Lo Capo with its white-washed houses and lovely restaurants serving the town’s speciality, cous cous.

Sicily is an incredible island full of bustling towns, a varied landscape and a wide range of historical sites. La Bussola is in the ideal location to visit some of the region’s fascinating cultural landmarks such as Segesta with its temple and Greek theatre. Other great towns to see are Erice, which is filled with history and Trapani, where you can travel by ferry to the beautiful Aegadian Islands – perfect for a day trip.

Even the magnificent city of Palermo can be visited in a day with its vibrant street markets, historic treasures and enchanting ambience.
