Villa Tropea is an impressive country villa on an untouched Sicilian hillside of north-west Sicily, basking in the peaceful open countryside with incredible panoramic sea views. The villa combines the best of Sicily with its spacious, uncluttered design and a strategic position within easy reach of magnificent beaches, stunning scenery and the historical, coastal towns of Scopello and Castellammare del Golfo.

The approach to the villa from the coast takes you up a hillside by way of a winding country road, passing olive trees and farmhouses. From the moment you arrive through the villa gates, you will start to unwind as you take in the tranquil setting. The focus here is on summer essentials - a stunning infinity pool for a refreshing dip and wide terraces furnished for the simple pleasure of relaxing and dining while admiring the changing colours of the sea below.

Built in local stone and restored for modern living, the unfussy interiors are ideal for a large group of friends or family. Using only quality materials and carefully chosen furnishings, the villa has an authentic style which adds to the experience of staying here, with its hand-crafted Sicilian marble floors, exposed stone walls and solid wood dining table.

The bedroom set up is flexible to accommodate large family groups with enough doubles and single beds for a group of 12. The owner of Villa Tropea believes the beautiful location is one which inspires poets and writers, so he has dedicated each of the five bedrooms to his favourite Sicilian writers, carving their names in stone by the doors. Be sure to read an "Inspector Montalbano" novel there while staying in the bedroom dedicated to the author.

Dining under the wooden pergola on the terrace with the sea sparkling in the distance is an experience to remember, from feasting on fresh pastries for breakfast to an evening Aperol or barbecue together. Enjoy a private dip in your infinity pool or head down to the coast for a refreshing swim in the sea - the choice is yours.

What you should know…

  • Young children need to be monitored outside, particularly by the pool edge where there is no barrier and around the rocks by the pool
  • There are 3 bathrooms for 5 bedrooms, so some guests will need to share bathrooms
  • Four of the bedrooms are on the first floor so there is only one bedroom on the ground floor which may not be be ideal for guests with mobility issues
  • The final leg of access road to the villa is up an unpaved track - we suggest hiring a sturdier car, also making the most of this fantastic area

Villa Tropea enjoys breath-taking views of the area, so it is an excellent place to get your bearings and plan where to explore during your stay. The view stretches from an impressive mountainous backdrop to the tower of Scopello on the coast, from the Zingaro nature reserve to the Gulf of Castellammare. On a clear day, you can see the tip of the city of Palermo.

The village and the picturesque cliffs of Scopello on the coast are a short drive away. Well worth visiting is the 18th century cobbled ‘baglio’ where you can stop for a bite to eat and the ancient tonnara - a restored 13th-century tuna fishery, featured as a film set in recent years including Ocean’s 12 and the television series, Inspector Montalbano.

Local shops for supplies are within a short drive of the villa too, so easy to stock up for barbecues and breakfasts. A short distance in the other direction from Scopello is Castellammare del Golfo, a charming coastal town with a harbour and ancient castle on the sea, wonderful beaches, gelato and excellent seafood restaurants.

A trading port dating back to the 6th century, you can get a sense of its historical routes as you swim in the inviting waters below the castle or visit the museum. For lidos set up with sun loungers, watersports and cafes, try the beaches of Cala Petrolo and La Plaja.

Further along the coast is the Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, a 7km stretch of untouched coastline with beautiful coves and nature trails to discover and a delightful contrast from the more popular lidos of Castellammare del Golfo.

Within an hours drive of the villa is an array of fascinating places to discover from the historical centres of Trapani and Marsala to the salt pans with their ancient windmills, the temples of Segesta and Selinunte. From Trapani, you can take a boat to the Egadi islands just off the west coast for a fascinating day out.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Tropea is a wonderful location for a family holiday. The living space is uncluttered and the furniture is sturdy, so it feels practical and durable enough for children of all ages! Over-heated youngsters can easily cool off with a swim in the pool or lie back on one of the huge sofas inside, pleasantly cool with its marble floors, air-conditioned interiors (and WiFi!).

Children are warmly welcomed in restaurants and bars in Sicily and they will love the food too. Pizza, pasta and ice cream are always excellent quality while the more adventurous can try delicious fresh seafood platters at a variety of restaurants along the coast.

Castellammare del Golfo is particularly popular with families who meet in the summer evenings by the harbour and piazza, as is the smaller Baglio of Scopello village. Become one of the locals and enjoy a delicious evening drink together while the children devour a generous scoop of gelato and have run around.

Whether you prefer hidden coves or friendly family beaches, this area of Sicily will not disappoint. Just 10 minutes down the hill from the villa is the pretty pebbly beach of Guidaloca, perfect for a paddle, where you can rent sun loungers, parasols and kayaks. Just a bit further along the coast is Castellammare del Golfo with long sandy stretches of beach, private lidos and water sports, so particularly family friendly with the added attraction of an ancient castle as a backdrop.

Experience a more natural setting at the nature reserve of Lo Zingaro, following pathways through unspoilt countryside which lead to scenic sandy and pebbly coves, it is idyllic and never crowded, even in the summer.

Unique and fascinating for all ages are temples of Segesta or Selinunte and the salt pans at the Stagnone, each about an hour from the villa. At the salt pans, you will discover the secrets of salt production with its windmills dating back to mediaeval times and fields of harvested salt. Find out more about its fascinating history at the nearby salt museum and perhaps take a boat out to the Egadi islands visible from this part of the coast – an unforgettable experience for children and adults alike.
