Who’s the driving force in your household when it comes to booking a holiday? Are you all on the same wavelength regarding holidaying with friends? Finding a compromise can be tricky at times, which makes the latest addition to our portfolio, Case Fil, even more welcome.
If a holiday for you means having space to do your own thing, this is the one for you. Better still, its layout works equally well for couples or families. With three separate accommodation cubes, each with a master bedroom, bathroom and extra sleeping space for young children, each couple or family get that extra bit of privacy. In fact, as all the rooms have direct access to the garden, staying here is rather like staying in your own private hotel!
The one big difference, of course, is that you get the pool – in this case, all 18m of it – all to yourselves! Forget fighting for sun beds: there are more than enough here to go round, including some very cool double-width sun mattresses that skim the water’s surface at either end of the pool.
The villa is beautifully designed for easy socialising and mealtimes. Pop some homemade pizzas in the woodburning oven or some fish on the barbecue then gather around the supersize table overlooking the pool for a sociable dinner under the stars. On cooler evenings, there’s the indoor option – a stylish kitchen and huge open plan living and dining room in the main villa.
Prefer to retreat to your own space at the start of the day? The two smaller villas have their own kitchenette so you can make a coffee and withdraw to a shady tree away from the pool, for your own quiet time.
If want to split your time between the beach and exploring western Sicily, Case Fil could hardly be better placed. Trapani, Marsala, Erice and the ancient site of Segesta are all within easy reach. Take your pick of numerous beaches, around Trapani and along the coast up to San Vito lo Capo, and across to the tiny sandy bays that fringe the Zingaro Nature Reserve. Be sure also to squeeze in a sailing or snorkelling excursion to the Egadi Islands, departing from Trapani.
