Cupole Arabe This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Custonaci

Description

Direct access to the beach and stunning terrace views over Cornino bay make Cupole Arabe a popular choice for a beach holiday in Sicily. With two double bedrooms and bathrooms each located in their own ‘mini’ dome, the accommodation is particularly suited to two couples holidaying together.

The unique dome-shaped accommodation is situated amidst lush gardens, with Monte Cofano as a backdrop. With Cornino beach on your doorstep and several restaurants within walking distance, you can manage here without a car if you prefer not to drive. If you do want to venture further afield, there is a great selection of local beaches, the towns of Marsala, Trapani and Erice are within easy reach of the villa and boat trips to the Aegadian Islands are also a popular option.

The three domes lead on to a large terrace with a dining table, sunbeds and gorgeous sea views. The estate is also home to Casetta in Pietra, a two-bedroom cottage which is completely independent of Cupole Arabe and set slightly below it. For larger groups interested in renting both properties, visit Le Case di Cornino.

Each of the domes are accessed directly from the terrace or internally. The central dome features a living room with sofas and a dining table and an open plan kitchen. There is a double bedroom and bathroom in each of the adjacent domes and two additional single rooms available for larger parties. The property is not air-conditioned but remains cool thanks to its unique design.

Note: a third property on the estate is occupied by a caretaker.

The area

The top northwest corner of Sicily is renowned for its superb beaches. Start off in the Bay of Cornino where the sandy beach (200m from villa) is fringed by exceptionally clear water. At Lido Baia Cornino or Lido Aquarius, you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas although there are also free public areas. When you feel like venturing further afield, the large sandy beach at the seaside town of San Vito Lo Capo is a pleasant place to spend the day although it can get very busy in August.

For more sandy stretches, head to Castellammare del Golfo or, for the best swimming spots, the bays that fringe the Zingaro Nature Reserve. Both Castellammare del Golfo and the old fishing town of Scopello have a good selection of restaurants and gelaterie. Alternatively, you can drive to nearby Custonaci (3km), a town which is best known for its live nativity show performance in Mangiapane Cave.

For guests who enjoy hiking, Monte Cofano offers several options. Marked trails and mule tracks pass by watchtowers, tiny chapels and caves and provide wonderful coastal views. The Zingaro Nature Reserve is also a popular spot for hikers.

The towns of Marsala and Trapani are certainly worth a visit, particularly if you time your trip to coincide with one of the spectacular sunsets over the saltpans which lie between the two towns. If you enjoy boat trips and snorkelling, you may want to consider a mini-cruise from Marsala to the Aegadian Islands.

Even closer to the villa, Erice is a stunning medieval hilltop town with narrow twisting streets and two imposing castles. The town is best accessed via cable car from Trapani. Alternatively, the ancient Greek site of Segesta is less than an hour away by car.

Fantastic apartment and excellent setting, very peaceful and relaxing. Fully equipped. We were 2 families (4 adults and 3 children), kids loved playing in the garden. Walking distance from a nice beach. A good position for visiting the surroundings (with a car). The owner is very friendly and helpful. Recommended!!!
