ELEGANT SICILIAN DWELLING NEAR THE SEA FOR NATURE'S LOVERS, IN AN HISTORIC AREA

Sciacca House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathrooms, sleeps 5

The house is located in the most famous seaside area of Sciacca, that is only 4 km away from it. This is the ideal location for a seaside holiday, as well as the starting point for excursions to many important archaeological (Selinunte, Agrigento, Segesta) and nature areas (“Scala dei Turchi” – Turkish steps, Torre Salsa, Erice). You can reach all resorts by car (approx. 1 hour). The house is surrounded by a big patio, in which also the landlord’s house is located, who will warmly welcome you with savory snacks, local Sicilian cakes, seasonal fruits and the typical hard wheat bread. Upon departure, you will receive a bottle of extra-virgin olive oil produced in this area. The house is surrounded by a fenced olive grove (3 ha) and can be accessed through a big automatic gate. After a sunny day at the seaside or a beautiful excursion, you can have a rest in the shade of the gazebos or the olive trees, while in the evening you can enjoy a barbecue and taste the delicious Sciacca’s fish.

The Sicily region: Sicily is the biggest island in the Mediterranean Sea, where many populations followed each other, like the Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, who all left traces of their civilization.

Goethe himself affirmed that “to have seen Italy without seeing Sicily is not having seen Italy at all. Sicily is the key to everything”.

Sciacca/ Contrada San Marco area: Sciacca is a beautiful and elegant city, famous for its thermal treatments that were appreciated even by the Romans. Here you will have the chance to admire many palaces and churches that date back to the Renaissance and Baroque period, as well as numerous Arab-Norman finds. The seaside resorts are visited by many tourists, who love the fine sandy beaches and the blue sea. Moreover, many are the cultural events organized by the town council in July and August.

How to get there: By plane/car: from Palermo or Trapani airport, take the motorway A29. From Catania airport, take the motorway A19. You can rent a car at any Sicilian airport.

By sea: ferry-boats (Genoa-Palermo, Civitavecchia-Palermo or Naples-Palermo).

A very special place

  • 5 of 5
From the photos and previous reviews we expected a lot but nothing can capture the magic of sitting on the terrace or amongst the vines in the mornings and evenings. We arrived very late having been delayed at Heathrow and went wrong at the last stage of the journey. We therefore recommend you put the GPS into a sat nav, something we failed to do. When we finally arrived Vito was so friendly and helpful we immediately felt at home - also the welcome trays of breads and goodies was a lovely personal touch which we tucked into with relish. The local beach was minutes away by car. We found good restaurants in the port area. It was easy to drive to the many historical sites. All in all an excellent base for a relaxing holiday away from any hustle or bustle.

Perfect holiday villa

  • 5 of 5
My husband, our two boys (age 9 and 7) and I stayed in Baglio San Marco in April 2013. The place was really restful with comfortable big beds, beautiful compact kitchen and an amaizing area outdoors - with lots of sitting, a swing and a hammock - all surrounded by the olive grove. We found some lovely beaches not too far from the house. The owners are charming, genuinely friendly and very helpful. We spent a wonderful week there. Thank you Giulia and Vito (and thank you for the delicious olive oil!) Ania and family.

Super stay amongst olive trees

  • 5 of 5
Really nice place for those who love to have it authentic but comfortable. The house and surroundings are even nicer than the pictures show! Our hosts are lovely people, very supportive and really taking care of their guests. We had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday there. We will for sure recommend it to our friends, and come back again.

Great house... Even greater hosts

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at the property on the evening of 26th September. The description and pictures accurately depict the property, however, they can not capture just how nice the location really is. It completely exceeded our expectations! The place is exceptionally clean and really well maintained. The houses are organized nicely around a huge patio and the inside is decorated with a loving touch.
Thanks so much to Giulia for the fantastic welcome food. I don't think I have ever tasted better olives in my life! Everything for the first morning was provided (toast, jam, milk, coffee, fruits, juice, etc.). We especially enjoyed the mornings and nights in the garden/on the patio. Everything is really nicely decorated and lit up at night. Coming back in the evenings felt almost better than coming home.
In addition, the hosts, Giulia and her family, were extremely nice and helpful. Do ask for a recommendation for a restaurant in Sciacca and where to get the best gelato in town. They know and will gladly tell you!
I highly recommend the place and would certainly return, if I ever get the chance to visit Sicily again. A truly unforgettable stay.

Nice authentic property

  • 5 of 5
This house really is located in a small 8 acre Olive Farm, you park your car under the trees to keep it cool!
The house is obviously very old and has many authentic features inside. It is comfortable, reasonably clean throughout, cool with lovely tiled floors and has a well equipped bathroom and kitchen. Outside there is a massive patio with a variety of chairs and a hammock. The owners (who were very friendly and helpful) stay in a another house across the yard but you’ll never see them, unless you need anything. The house is in a great location to visit several outstanding beaches in the area, as well as tourist locations like the Valley of the Temples and nearby Sciacca.
If you like authentic.... you will like this
