Santa Margherita di Belice Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

8 sleeps, private pool, terrace, garden, Agrigento, wineries, sandy beach, WiFi

Villa degli Eremiti is a charming villa with private pool and a perfect retreat if you are looking for a relaxing, peaceful holiday close to the sandy beaches of Porto Palo di Menfi and a short drive from many famous Sicilian wineries.

There are several lounges, a bright living area, a covered terrace that remains cool and shaded throughout the day and a garden with a private pinewood.

The villa is located on an strategic position just outside the village of Santa Margherita di Belice, a town with an intriguing history, first destroyed by the 1969 Earthquake and then reborn in the 70s in accordance with the dictates of futuristic architecture. From the villa you can easily reach gorgeous sandy beaches ( the magnificent beach of Porto Palo di Menfi at 15 km, for instance), the cute old town Sambuca di Sicilia and archaeological sites of Selinunte, Segesta and Agrigento, and world famous wineries such as Planeta, Feudo Arancio and Donnafugata, where you can enjoy a Sicilian wine tasting.

Villa degli Eremiti has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and it is suitable for group of friends and families. The first and second bedrooms have both an en-suite bathroom. One of these bedrooms has also an extra entrance from outside. The third bedroom is a bright room with 2 single beds and a mezzanine with a forth bedroom, a bathroom and access to the enormous roof terrace.

All bedrooms have air-conditioning.

The gorgeous private pool of Villa degli Eremiti (size 14x7 m., depth from 1.60- 2.20 m.) is open from early April until early November.

About Giulia Lattanzio / Lenneke Burghouts

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.

Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.

We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.

Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wij vinden Casale degli Eremiti een compleet en heel ruime vakantie verblijf waar het bijzonder goed toeven is, een klein ressort maar dan helemaal voor je zelf. Alleen de keuken is aan de kleine kant. Ook de ligging is mooi waarbij je geniet van de rust en privacy. De eigenaar is vriendelijk en de ontvangst was hartelijk en spreekt tevens prima de Engelse taal.

De omgeving van Santa Margherita di Belice biedt een afwisseling aan natuur, cultuur en diverse leuke dorpjes en stadjes, de afstanden naar o.a Selinunte, Salemi, Sciacca en Corleone zijn kort en zijn tevens aanraders, maar ook het museum in Santa Margherita di Belice over de aardbeving in 1968 is interessant (Dichtbij het museum zijn de restanten nog te zien ). Kortom, je bent er niet snel uitgekeken. Belangrijk is wel om een auto te huren.

A very nice house with a friendly & helpful owner

  • 4 of 5

The house is a former restaurant and very big and spacious. The surrounding garden with the large pool and shaded terrace are also well kept and very pleasant! We received very good service upon arrival late at night and also got a number of helpful suggestions from the very friendly and helpful owner Guiseppe. I can really recommend renting this property!

Comfortable homely Arabic style villa

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with grown up teenage children. The pool was very well maintained and wonderful for lengths or pool games. The house is characterful and with an intriguing history. We spent most of our days at the house and cooked most days. A dishwasher was missed initially but we soon forgot about it! The internet access was reasonable and importantly met the young people's expectations! The owner is charming, friendly and helpful with local suggestions. The nearest bakery was fabulous to bring home breads for breakfast. The town of Santa Margarita is sleepy hit a must to go around the ruins resulting from the earthquake.the beach at Porto Palo is a must. Calm clear waters good for safe swimming and not hugely crowded at all when we went. Highly recommended property .

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

This property is nice, it has an amazing garden and pool. The only thing is that it needs to be remodelled, specially some of the furniture. Mr saladino was very kind and helpful. I would certainly recommend this to a friend.

Very welcoming and interesting villa with pool

  • 5 of 5

Very welcoming and interesting villa. Good secluded position, spacious and clean accommodation, lovely pool and grounds, friendly cat and interesting wildlife. Good situation for touring and exploring sites. The nearby town had plenty of small shops to cater for needs.

Giuseppe was very friendly and helpful with advise on where to eat and site seeing worth while and a quick tour of the villa before leaving us too it.

Would recoommend it to anyone interested in exploring the west of Sicily or just looking for an interesting and relaxing place to stay.

Unusual, peaceful and comfortable villa

  • 4 of 5

A former restaurant with spacious reception rooms with character. Bedrooms and bathrooms comfortable but basic, though air conditioning effective and plenty of hot water. Large garden. Fantastic large pool with ample sunbathing areas! No neighbours close except the owner who lives in a flat attached to the villa. Villa situated on the outskirts of a modern, unattractive town, but on a hill, with wonderful surrounding countryside and vineyards. We were a family of 7, with 5 children between 23 and 15, and we had a good week. Loved wine-tasting at Planeta and spending days at the ruins of Selinunte, Segesta and on the beach.

Charming, huge and cheap

  • 5 of 5

Very much "sicilian". Care for details, nice pool and not too far from a beautiful beach. About 20 km. Close to a lot of wineries, like Planeta and Feudo Arancio. The villa has big living rooms, shaded areas in the garden and there is even a pine wood. Also nice for children to play.

Agrigento, Selinunte, Segesta and Sciacca: Day trips from S.M. di Belice include Agrigento (85 km), Selinunte (35 km), Segesta (45 km) and Sciacca (30 km). Agrigento is a major tourist center due to its extraordinarily rich archaeological legacy. At the Valley of the Temples, the Classical world comes alive. The temples are the largest and best-preserved ancient Greek buildings outside of Greece itself. They are listed as a World Heritage Site. An ideal first glimpse of the temples is by night, during a drive along the Strada Panoramica. Segesta is one of the most romantic classical sites. The Greek theatre on the hill offers a wide view. Selinunte is a huge and very interesting site, left in splendid isolation, flanked by rivers and ancient ports. Sciacca is a working fishing town with a well preserved historic centre and some shops and good restaurants. The coast around Sciacca is sprinkled with excellent sandy beaches.

Visit premium wine producer Planeta: In the country side of Sambuca di Sicilia,, a historic Arab-Norman town, the premium wine producer Planeta can be visited. Original home of the family and the business, the 17th century farmhouse stands between the ruins of an Arab castle, the Arancio lake and a mountain range. The vineyards 'Ulmo' and 'Maroccoli' extend over a total of 95 hectares, surrounding the first Planeta winery where the quality white wines; Alastro (Chardonnay and Grecanico), Chardonnay and Cometa (Fiano) are produced.
