 The elegant shady sea-view terrace.  The second sea-view sitting area.  Bright Mediterranean colours at Profondo Blu.  Access to the house is from the courtyard.  The place where you probably spend most of the time!  By the gate to the beach is a little hut with all the beach stuff.  These photos have been taken on a Thursday in July!  The facade of Profondo Blu amidst the lush vegetation.  Looking up at the house from the path to the beach.  The calming blue of the sea will tempt you throughout your stay!  Getting ready for lunch.  Views of the beach from the terrace.  The terraces offer plenty of space for everyone.  Sit down, take it easy, soak up the atmosphere and lose yourself in the views.  From the sea-view terrace into the kitchen.  The well-equipped, luminous kitchen.  The kitchen accesses the indoor living and dining area.  The open-plan living area complete with impressive fireplace.  The open-plan living and dining area has direct access to the sea-view terrace.  The master bedroom.  The adjacent bathroom.  The twin can also be a comfortable double bedroom.  The second bathroom.  One of the three double bedrooms.  An alternative al fresco dining area in the courtyard.  The wood-fired pizza oven.  What you will sea while dining...  Luxuriant gardens and acres of private nature reserve surround the house.  More sea views!  The cool little wood behind the house.  The tennis table is shaded and has sea views!  The house seen from amongst the surrounding greenery.  The path down to the golden sandy beach... What could be easier?  The stunning beach is just 50m away down a path and will never get busy.  Heading down to the sea.  The magnificent Temple of Hera at Selinunte.  The site of Selinunte includes the remains of 5 temples, an agora and an acropolis.  Guests have privileged access to Planeta's exclusive Beach Club.

A delightful beachfront summer house ensconced in a private nature reserve.

Profondo Blu takes its name from the enticing colour of the sea that gently caresses the long sandy expanse of beach below. Sun-baked Mediterranean maquis, shady trees and succulent plants make up the 15 hectares of private nature reserve that envelope the house in a cocoon of fragrant tranquility, providing the perfect retreat for those wishing to get away from the rigours of everyday life.

"I love this place. It was perfect for me and my family." Christian Uhlemann, Germany, October 2013

About the Property


Inside: the house is all on one level and is accessed from a sheltered courtyard. The first thing you notice on entering Profondo Blu is the view straight out to sea from the large, comfortable open-plan living and dining area. French windows bring in the sunlight and provide access to the seafront terraces. Next to the dining area is the the well-equipped, traditional Sicilian kitchen which also opens on to the seafront terrace and the al fresco dining area. A corridor leads from the living area to the sleeping quarters, where there are two double bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, a twin/double bedroom, and a second shared bathroom.

Outside: the focal point for guests at Profondo Blu is without doubt the large panoramic sea-view terrace. Cushioned sofas are arranged to maximise the views, while the al fresco dining area is served directly from the indoor kitchen, an outdoor wood-burning pizza oven and a barbecue area. An easy path leads for about 50m from the terrace down to the sea gate (and beach equipment storage hut) and from there on to a long sandy beach. Even in the height of summer the beaches along this stretch of coast are sparsely populated. Behind the house is a large sheltered courtyard terrace, offering an alternative dining and relaxing area, and a cool wood that is part of the 15 hectares of pristine nature reserve - all yours to explore!

Think About

Profondo Blu is a simple, comfortable villa that is ideal for nature lovers and those who are looking for silence, peace and relative isolation. It is accessed via a dirt track which leads from the nearest road for about two hundred metres.

Safely fenced in, some distance from the house, are the owners' donkeys and horses, while you may also come across the occasional mouflon (a type of sheep, apparently!) that are left free to roam the nature reserve.

Guests staying at Profondo Blu have privileged access to Planeta's exclusive Beach Club at Lido Fiori in Menfi (entrance fees apply).



Exploring the local Area

The beauty and peace of your own personal nature reserve may make it difficult to pull yourselves away but you really should visit Selinunte and have a superb lunch or dinner on the beach at the restaurant La Pineta (this latter is about a 3.5km walk along the beach from Profondo Blu). Several of the towns nearby are also well worth a visit. Sciacca and Mazara del Vallo both have charming old centres, some great restaurants and working ports with a large fishing fleets that work the Mediterannean daily. Caltabellotta is spectacularly situated in the craggy hills overlooking both coast and interior, while Menfi is an up-and-coming centre of excellence for the wine trade... to name a few.

The beaches in the area of Porto Palo-Menfi have received 13 consecutive "Blue Flags", attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence. Guests staying at Profondo Blu have privileged access to Planeta's exclusive Beach Club at Lido Fiori in Menfi (entrance fees apply).
