A delightful beach-front 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.

"The villa’s position was incredible, moments away from a lovely, virtually deserted beach, even in July and August... A perfect place to relax and unwind." Neil Pemberthy, UK, August 2013

About the Property

Inside: the house is all on one level and is accessed initially from a sheltered courtyard to the rear. The main body of the house is given over to a large, comfortable open-plan living and dining area with direct access to the sea-view terrace. Off this area is the well-equipped kitchen which also opens on to the sea terrace and the al fresco dining area. A corridor leads past the kitchen to the sleeping quarters comprised by 2 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).

The Area

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. Several of the towns nearby are also well worth a visit. Sciacca has a charming old centre, some great restaurants and a working port with a large fishing fleet that works 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).
