Casetta in Pietra This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Trapani

Description

Wander down to the beach or take in the gorgeous landscape of the Monte Cofano Nature Reserve on Sicily’s west coast. Within easy reach of Palermo airport, Casetta in Pietra is an excellent value option for a sunshine break for either a couple or a family. With Cornino beach on your doorstep and several restaurants within walking distance, you could holiday here without a car. However, for those who prefer to explore, it is just a short drive to the vast stretch of sand at San Vito Lo Capo and the hideaway bays and crystal-clear waters that fringe the Zingaro Nature Reserve.

The pretty stone-built cottage is set on the edge of the nature reserve, on a hillside estate that is shared by Cupole Arabe and which has direct access to Cornino beach. The properties are separate from one another but are an ideal option for several families who wish to holiday together whilst still retaining some independence (see Le Case di Cornino to view the entire accommodation).

The secluded shaded veranda outside Casetta in Pietra is a heavenly spot for al fresco meals. Double doors from the veranda lead directly into the open plan living room and kitchen, an attractively-furnished room with two brightly-coloured sofas. The kitchen, at one end of the room, has a small breakfast table and chairs.

The bathroom is beautifully tiled with local ceramics and the two bedrooms (one double, one twin) are simply furnished and decorated in bright colours.

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.

Exceptionally friendly welcome. lovely relaxing and tranquil accommodation, as described. Beautiful sunsets over the sea to sit and watch every evening from the terrace. Would recommend as a quiet and peaceful place to base your holiday from but car definitely needed. Communication and booking was easy and prompt. No issues. All very good.
