Overview of Villa Luisa

What Oliver loves…

  • Splendid views of rolling hills and valleys, the Tyrrhenian sea, and rural Sicily at its most picturesque
  • The veranda becomes quite serene when lit up at night, looking out upon the gently illuminated landscape
  • A short way from Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, from which many outdoor pursuits are possible

What you should know…

  • A late arrival fee applies (see T's & C's)
  • The pool is open between April and early October, outside of which it costs 100 Euros to re-open

Villa Luisa looks upon the surrounding landscape of the valley of Grotticelli Buonriposo, majestically perched with panoramic views of the countryside extending for miles. Beyond the fields, imperial mountains catch the sun, rising out from the calm waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. This is a property that puts its guests at the heart of rural Sicily, rich in natural beauty.

One commodious room functions as a kitchen and living area indoors. This creates an especially social atmosphere when preparing an evening meal, and thanks to the many windows which brighten the space, glimpses caught of the fantastic view outside offer constant reminders of the island’s magic. The bedrooms, a double and a twin, are cool and tastefully furnished, the window of the double looking out upon a distant mountain.

Outside, the villa comes into its own. A veranda with a quaint wooden bench provides a relaxing spot from which to take in the surroundings. An elegant stone patio engulfs the private swimming pool, which is shaded naturally in parts by nearby trees. A dry stone wall at the end of the pool and a stone BBQ by the veranda give these grounds a traditional rustic charm. Illuminated at night, the garden becomes dreamlike. The view also transforms, as lights from the nearby fishing village twinkle gently with the stars above them.

Map, Location & Local Information

West of Palermo, just after Castellammare del Golfo, the coastline becomes rugged and spectacular. Part of this coastline is Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, which stretches for 7km between the lovely village of Scopello in the east to near San Vito Lo Capo in the west. Created in 1981, this park and its surrounding areas are one of the most beautiful parts of western Sicily.

Lo Zingaro has been shaped by nature to dramatic effect. Cliffs drop precipitously into the azure sea and the series of pebbly beaches hidden amongst a myriad of coves are as lovely as you can find in the Mediterranean. The park attracts both walkers and bathers alike and in the summer, when many beaches are overcrowded, it is a good idea to head for Lo Zingaro, walk for half an hour and find relative isolation on a virtually deserted beach.

At the edge of the Zingaro Nature reserve lies the ancient Scopello (from the Greek word "Skopelos" that means "cliff”), a small, pleasant village that was built around a 16th-century “baglio”, on the site of a former Moorish hamlet. As you will discover, this nice courtyard is now the heart of the village. Here, ceramics and souvenirs shops, as well as boutiques, cafés and restaurants lie under the shadow of a large eucalyptus. On the road to Trapani one can spot the idyllically situated Greek temple of Segesta, one of the Mediterranean’s finest archaeological sites.

Castellammare del Golfo is an attractive seaside town between Palermo and Trapani. The historic fishing port has a picturesque location, below steep mountain slopes; with a handsome curved harbour at the foot of a small headland topped with a castle. There are still small working fishing boats, and you may see fishermen mending their nets on board, or selling the day's catch. Castellammare has a pretty little central park, opposite the elegant town hall on Corso Mattarella. The park has a small children's play area, shady trees, and benches with views over the harbour.
