Le Case di Cornino This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Custonaci

Description

Situated on the edge of Monte Cofano in north west Sicily and within walking distance of the beach and local restaurants, Le Case di Cornino is one of our top recommendations for groups of friends or several families. The two properties are separate, linked by a flight of steps, and there is a large terrace for communal relaxation and dining as well as a beach on your doorstep. Nearby, guests can choose from a range of activities, including hiking, sailing or sightseeing in the local towns of Erice, Trapani and Marsala.

Monte Cofano forms the backdrop to the lush estate on which the two properties are situated. There are sea views from the main terrace and direct access to the beach. The larger property is Cupole Arabe, a cluster of three dome-shaped buildings comprising a living room and open plan kitchen in the central dome and, in the two adjacent domes, a double bedroom and bathroom with shower. Two single bedrooms can also be made available. Each of the domes lead on to the main terrace.

A flight of steps links the Cupole Arabe to a small cottage, Casetta in Pietra. This two-bedroom property (one double, one twin) has one bathroom and an open plan living room/kitchen which leads out to its own dining terrace.

Please note that air-conditioning is only available in Casetta in Pietra. The unique dome-shaped structure of Cupole Arabe keeps the properties sufficiently cool.

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.

Great location and great place, loved the proximity to the beach. Amazing views from the place and great places to swim nearby. Definitely a place to recommend. Website worked well and the contact that we did need to ave was pleasant.
