Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Three-bedroom Villa Erice lies on the edge of a small coastal village on Sicily's west coast, with a sandy beach and restaurants just a short walk away. This family-friendly villa nestles within a small but typically Mediterranean garden that offers lovely views of majestic Mount Cofano.

An attractive and down-to-earth abode, there's plenty of comfort on offer at Villa Erice. With all the living spaces being on ground level, walk through the front door straight into the lounge and onto the sofa. You'll have just walked past the al-fresco dining area on the main terrace too, which itself can be reached via the kitchen. With such a free-flowing, open-plan layout that connects indoor and outdoor spaces, everything feels so easy and sociable.

The bright, modern style of the ground floor continues downstairs where the three bedrooms can be found. Two have a double bed, with the third being great for children as it boasts twins. Being tucked away on the lower floor, each feels restful and calm.

The highlight of the tree-dotted garden is a swimming pool set into manicured lawns surrounded by lush greenery and stone walls. Enjoy a refreshing dip, or keep your feet dry on a poolside lounger and refresh with a cocktail instead. You might also choose to unwind by cooking up a storm on the barbecue or finding a shady spot to read. Always in the background is stunning Mount Cofano.

Wander down the road to a beautiful sandy beach, just a 5-minute stroll away, and even closer are a handful of places to eat and drink. You're also never too far from the ancient sites that dot the land of western Sicily. These include the Scurati Caves close by or drive further to discover the Temple of Segesta and Selinunte.

Only half an hour by car, the medieval village of Erice is a particularly lovely place to spend a few hours, followed by the impressive coastal city of Trapani with its Renaissance churches, ancient fish market and surrounding salt pans.

Of course, you will also want to experience the marvel of Mount Cofano and its nature reserve, then tick another natural wonder off your list by visiting Zingaro Nature Reserve - within just half an hour you can reach San Vito Lo Capo with its idyllic bay and glorious cous cous restaurants.

Villa Erice sits in a semi-residential area near a small coastal village at the foot of Mount Cofano, with a restaurant just a few steps away and other places to eat or drink within a short stroll. The nearest supermarket for stocking up on essentials is a five minute drive away. Stroll down to the beach in just 5 minutes, where lovely sand and clear and calm swimming waters are waiting for you.

There are so many natural wonders in the immediate area, with the Scurati Caves (Grotta Mangiapane) being one of the most fascinating, just a few minutes away by car. Explore a prehistoric cave with village homes, free-roaming animals and historic re-enactors. If you visit at Christmas, there's a living nativity to enjoy too.

Mount Cofano and stunning nature reserve are less than a 15-minute drive away, with the area a must-visit on family days out. Varied landscapes offer beach relaxing, swimming in crystal-clear waters and hiking along rugged trails and up the mountain.

The medieval village of Erice is a beautiful place to while away a few hours exploring cobbled, winding streets. Due to its elevated position, it also offers fantastic views over Trapani, the Aegadian Islands and San Vito Lo Capo. A cable car takes you to the coastal city of Trapani in around 10 minutes, with some stunning scenery along the way.

A 30-minute drive from the villa, Trapani, is a place of ancient history and natural beauty. Probably most-known for its vast salt pans, visit the salt production site with museum and old salt-grinding windmills. It's also a nature reserve that's home to marsh plant life and sea birds. Follow the salt road that takes you along the salt pans to Marsala, famous for its wine.

The other highlight of Trapani is its much-restored old town. Marvel at Renaissance-era churches, elegant, informative museums and Piazza Mercato del Pesce, the site of the city's historic fish market. It's also a popular place for festivals and other cultural events.

Reviews

  • Exceptional!!

    on 11/10/2021

    This holiday home is a real treat, a gem located halfway between Palermo and Trapani. The setting is stunning and the house is top class!

    We booked this house to enjoy our honeymoon at without the need to deal with a busy city or town and it ticked all our boxes. The high season had just finished so it was extremely quiet in the local town but many things still open. The pizzeria next to the house is handy but not the best pizza in the area. A 5 minute walk up the road will get you the best pizza in the town.
    You will need a car for everything else. I recommend visiting Erice!

    Rosaria is only a text away and was so kind, welcoming and helpful during our stay! We will definitely book again and recommend to friends and family.

    Thank you Rosaria!

  • Very comfortable

    on 10/07/2021

    Very comfortable, nice house for families with children. Lovely owners, top hospitality, great places which are simple to reach by car (Trapani, Erice, Segesta).
    Thank you for everything.
    P.S. Keep in touch!

  • Beautiful house

    on 12/06/2021

    Beautiful house, amazing host and great place. We visited Trapani, Erice, the beaches around. Sicily is great and the host is really nice, “simpatica” and helpful. I recommend this house and Sicily.

  • Loved every moment

    on 26/09/2020

    We had loved every moment here in this exquisite villa. The villa itself has everything we could possibly need and we were very grateful for the seasonings, oil and equipment which made cooking such a pleasure. Add to this the stylish BBQ and excellent pizza restaurant next door and we have enjoyed our Italian feasting greatly. There is much to do here and the villa is perfectly positioned to explore the coastline to the north and west. We had great fun exploring the coves along the “Riserva orientata dello Zingaro” national park by boat.
    We also enjoyed our cable car trip to Erice from Trapani and wandering the spectacular heights of this ‘lost in time’ village. Another day cycling around Favignana (the Egadi Island) was wonderful and rarely have we seen water so turquoise.
    What is special though is that one actually could quite happily never leave Cornino with its charming little beach and beach café, the majestic mountain (itself a national park) and relaxing villa. We would love to return!

  • Felt most welcome

    on 19/09/2020

    What a beautiful house, garden and pool! In a totally unspoilt open space! We have enjoyed both relaxing by the pool and some fascinating day trips seeing just a little bit of Sicily. Have been made to feel most welcome and would love to come back!
    Many thanks!

  • Really enjoyable

    on 12/09/2020

    Very beautiful house. Thank you for the time! We really enjoyed our holiday and Sicilia and love to come back.
    Greetings from Germany and France!

  • A great stay

    on 20/07/2019

    We had a great stay, the villa was wonderful, lovely location. We love Sicily and will definitely come back to visit again.
