About the Villa
Private sea access, space and tranquillity.
La Fenice sits in a glorious position on one of the most beautiful parts of Sicily’s coastline. Comfort coupled with peace and quiet and private access to the crystal clear waters below make this an ideal choice for a good relaxing holiday. And with the restaurants and shops of Scopello within easy walking distance, you may find your hire car gets little use.
“La Fenice is an excellent place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Sicilian coastline. We had a wonderful stay. The setting was wonderful and the myriad of spaces around the villa meant that our party did not feel on top of each other. The owners were very hospitable and the welcome pack was excellent. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils. The toiletries were excellent (where can I get Radicepura). Overall we wold definitely come again.” Kim Humphreys, UK, September 2019

³ there is a mini-market with an outstanding deli, butcher's and wine section, a good bar, and an organic farm shop selling superb fruit and vegetables just a 10-minute walk away. There are also some good restaurants in the village of Scopello, about a 20-minute walk away (uphill). Please note that there are no pavements along the road up to Scopello.
Inside: accommodation at La Fenice is spread over two main floors. The front door takes one into an entrance hall, off which, to the right, is the well-equipped kitchen with breakfast table and pantry. On the left of the hallway is the first bedroom, a double with en-suite shower room. A few steps lead down from the entrance hall to the airy, voluminous living and dining area, which is on two levels and features triple-height ceilings. On the upper level is a large dining table, a couple of armchairs and direct access via a shady portico to a fabulous sea-view terrace. A few more steps lead down to the lower level of the living area, which has a fireplace, two sink-in sofas and access to the surrounding gardens. A curvaceous flight of stairs leads from the upper level of the living area to the first floor gallery (also accessed from the entrance hall) with a sitting area and French windows opening onto a panoramic sea-view terrace. The gallery leads to three more bedrooms: a large master bedroom, with lounge area, fireplace, sea views and en-suite bathroom with tub, and two double-twins one with an ensuite shower room and the other with its own adjacent shower room and views over the gardens.
Outside: La Fenice is accessed via a long private driveway through the wooded grounds. There are several terraces surrounding La Fenice, two of which offer glorious views of the sea and the rugged but idyllic coastline that so characterises this part of Sicily. The first, just off the indoor dining area on the ground floor, also has a shady portico where you will probably take most of your meals. The second is accessed from the first floor gallery. On the other side of the house is an area of garden and a covered al fresco living area from which one may join the gentle steps leading down to the transparent waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. La Fenice's private sea access is relatively easy thanks to the presence of an underwater bathing platform in a small protected cove. The water in the area is particularly clear, and perfect for snorkelling and swimming.
There is a nice pebbly beach with lido just up the road at Guidaloca.
