Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

When can we go back?!

  • 4 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay in Scopello, our first time on Sicily, and would gladly return. The house was very comfortable and perfectly placed if you want proximity to beaches, village restaurants and pasticceria and sights without masses of tourists. We were though grateful to have a hire car. The house is secluded and quiet, surrounded on one side by a long olive grove; the fruit trees in the back were also a lovely Mediterranean touch! The size of the property is generous for a holiday let (we we just used the bedrooms, but there was plenty of space for the sofa bed to be pulled out too) with a sun trap back garden and a shaded veranda at the front.

Giuseppina was so warm hearted and a great landlady who answered any questions we had and organised a very easy meeting point to then show us to the house.

A beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Stunning location on quiet road within walking distance of Scopello and the Zingaro Nature Reserve. The villa is in a quiet location with views right around the Golfo di Castellammare to the airport across the bay.

The owner is extremely helpful and even managed to locate us when we missed the Scopello turning on our arrival late at night. We were guided to the villa and had a full explanation of how the equipment worked before being left to recover, secure in the knowledge that she was only a phone call way if we should have any problems.

The accommodation is spacious and well equipped with a lovely shaded patio and all the usual facilities you would expect. This villa is suitable for couples and families (with two or three children if they can share a room). Just a short walk down the road, half way to the village, is a pizzeria with a large terrace where we enjoyed a couple of excellent evenings.

Scopello is a small village in a beautiful location with a bakery (well hidden down a side street), a butcher, a small general store, gelaterie, a couple of gift shops, a post office and a selection of pizzerias and restaurants as well as a market at the weekend. If you can’t find what you need here, there is a larger supermarket, a fruit and vegetable shop and another gelaterie just outside the town on the way to Castellammare.

There are several local attractions: a variety of beaches, the nature reserve with its hidden coves, the Tonnara d Scopello (associated with Gavin Maxwell, Ocean’s Twelve and Inspector Montalbano), a tower above the town and a stunning backdrop of sharply rising mountains.

The region is famous for its wine and there are several wineries that you can visit. We sampled the wine from the Fazio producer, just the other side of the mountain from the villa, on the recommendation of the owner’s husband.

A car is essential if you want to get around Trapani province. The villa is an ideal location from which to explore this western end of Sicily with the all main routes only a 10 minute drive away. We were able to visit San Vito Lo Capo and its Cous Cous festival, Erice, Selunte, the salt pans in the west, Mozia island, Selinute and spend time exploring the area more generally. Be warned – all archaeological sites need plenty of time to view properly! Allow at least half a day for each.

This is a wonderful region to visit with plenty of attractions to please all ages.

Would happily return

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here.Beautiful quiet location, spacious airy property, clean and well equipped. There was air conditioning in the main room but we didn't need to use it, despite the very hot weather. The owner was very pleasant, trusting and well organised. We were met as planned and everything was as expected.

A car is essential to get there (it was an easy drive from Trapani airport) and to explore the area, but we enjoyed walking to the local village in the mornings for breakfast at a bar and for basic supplies from the little grocery; also plenty of places to eat there. A good size supermarket with a butcher, and a greengrocers is just a few minutes drive back down the road to Castellamare..

The path down to the nearest beach (pebbly but very pretty and clean) is conveniently opposite the property.

The best thing was the shaded verandah where you could eat, or just sit out and enjoy the view overlooking the sea.

It was tricky at first negotiating the narrow gateway and steep curving driveway; you would not want a large car!

Wish we had stayed longer.

A perfectly situated holiday home

  • 4 of 5

A perfectly situated villa for walks in the nearby nature reserve, swimming in the sea and visting interesting sites that are not too far away such as the medival hill town Erice and Segesta's temple and greek theatre. A pizzaria is in walking distance which is particularly useful if you arrive at night time and a small supermarket with a superb greengrocer behind the shop are only a few minutes down the road by car. We also had a delicious meal in one of the fish restaurants in Castellammare harbour. The villa was clean and spacious, perfect for a family of four and reasonably well equipped if you don't mind eating everything from large dinner plates and cooking with well used sauce - and frying pans. The owner speaks perfect English, was very friendly and especially helpful when we needed a doctor.

Great for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property in September 2011 and it was perfect! 2 bedrooms - perfect also for families with 2 kids! Even has a sofabed so equipped for 6 people!

Everything was super clean, also the distance from the local beach (pebbled) was ideal! After swimming we used the outdoor shower! The front garden was ideal with the hammock and we were using the BBQ in the back every night.

The kitchen is fully equipped - just what you want... The local nature reserve is also very close great for walks in autumn and spring!

I would go back there any time!

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. The beautiful Tonnara de Scopello (location for a scene from Oceans 11 and home to Gavin Maxwell for a few years) is close by and for walkers and nature lovers the entrance to the Zingaro nature reserve is just 800 metres away from the house. If you have an appetite for history then you won’t be spoilt for choice 20 km brings you to the beautifully preserved Doric temple at Segesta; the dramatic medieval hilltop town of Erice; Palermo with its lovely Baroque architecture and botanical gardens are a 50 km trip; the ancient temples at Selinunte are 50 km away and the list goes on!
