We stayed in this lovely villa with its elevated position above a quiet beach about a kilometer outside of the old village of Scopello. The villa is very clean with all the usual requirements for a comfortable holiday stay and is owned by a very helpful and frendly hostess. It has a nicely shaded veranda area at the front where you can sit in the cool during the heat of the afternoon. The garden is full of mature trees and shrubs. The villa is only a few hundred metres from the entrance to the Zingaro nature reserve, a beautiful area of rocky coastline and panoramic mountain views. You cannot come to this area without spending a day walking in this wonderful, car free nature reserve The village of Scopello, well worth visiting is a small community with a few popular restaurants and bars set around an attractive old village square. This was our first trip to Sicily but we will certainly return, nice people, good food , great scenery and a lovely warm sea.
The villa is an easy 700 metres walk from the lovely little medieval village of Scopello with its sprinkling of pizzerias and typical trattoria and a bigger choice of eating places can be found on the picturesque harbour of Castellammare Del Golfo approx 8 kms away.
