About the Property

Inside: accommodation at Corte del Sole is all on one floor and revolves around the large, high-ceilinged, open-plan kitchen-diner (complete with breakfast bar and large dining table) and living area, which is connected to the garden and pool area via a series of large French windows. The sense of space continues into the sleeping areas, which comprise two lovely double bedrooms with large en-suite bathrooms. The ante-room of one of the doubles has a single bed that is suitable for a child/teenager. A third bathroom is situated just off the living area. Reclaimed terracotta floor tiles run throughout the house, complemented by the earthy, simple colours of the walls and the softly-spoken style of the furnishings and fittings. Traditional Sicilian elements blend seamlessly with more contemporary touches and the result is thoroughly calming and peace-inducing.

Outside: the focal point of the outdoor areas is the lovely pool area, complete with dining table, which has been positioned to take full advantage of the stunning views out towards the sea and the Egadi Islands. A lawned garden to the front of the house makes a great play area for younger children, while to the rear, via some flourishing Mediterranean flora, is a raised, panoramic knoll, the ideal spot for the evening ritual of watching the sun melt into the sea behind the Egadi Islands!

The Area

Exploring the local Area

Corte del Sole is ideally situated for an exploration of Western Sicily. The nearby towns of Trapani, Erice and Marsala all boast beautifully restored centres with fascinating histories and some great restaurants. The Phoenician island of Mozia is just a few km away, as are the beautiful salt pans where migrating flamingoes nest. The beaches to the south of Marsala and at San Vito Lo Capo are some of the finest in Sicily, and a day trip to the beautiful Egadi Islands will take you to another dimension of laid back relaxation. If all that weren't enough, the dramatic Greek sites of Segesta and Selinunte are within easy striking distance too.
