Description

Casa Melograno II is surrounded by the most amazing views of the unspoilt Sicilian countryside. It is positioned in an excellent location for enjoying both a country and seaside holiday. The lovely village of Selinunte with the largest archaeological park in Europe and its beautiful sandy beaches is just 10 km away where you can find beach bars and restaurants.

Inside

This is a small but very unique rural home which has been lovingly restored. The property has a very modern feel to certain aspects of it whilst in contrast, there are also elements of a rural Sicilian cottage that it once was.
The soft colours of the walls and mellow beams in the open-plan dining/kitchenette/living area are complemented outside with wooden canopies and window shutters. The views from the lounge through its feature glass walls are stunning across the open countryside and add a particular atmosphere to the interior.
A double bedroom and a twin bedroom have doors opening onto the terrace. A seperate modern bathroom with shower complete this comfortable and airy interior.
This house is one of three which sit side by side on this large tranquil estate.

Outside

The large terrace area is tastefully furnished and is complete with a covered pergola for al fresco meals, allowing you to appreciate the view across the olive groves to the coast.
Just a short walk from the house down a few steps a beautiful modern pool 3m x 9m and sundeck which are encircled by olive trees and lavender bushes adds comfort and character to its rural simplicity.

The Area

Casa Melograno II is located just 10 km far from the largest archeological park in Europe and it is close to some of the most beautiful beaches of Sicily’s western coast.
Selinunte Acropolis, once a large settlement at the westernmost reaches of Magna Graecia, looms upon a low promontory above the sparkling Mediterranean.
A stunning view of the ruins can be had if you swim out from the beach at Marinella di Selinunte and look toward land.
Marinella di Selinunte is only 7 km away and it also offers many shops and restaurants as well as its famous sandy beach.
Within a short distance is Castelvetrano, a nice medieval town, well known for its olive-oil production and for the delicious black bread made with an ancient Sicilian durum wheat flour called “tumminia”. In the Castelvetrano Civic Museum the famous archaic-style, bronze statue of the “Efebo di Selinunte” is displayed.

The property is just 2 km far from the beach of Belice Nature Reserve and few more kilometres from the beautiful beaches of Portopalo and Lido Fiori. These beaches received the “Bandiera Blu” (Blue flag) award for their clear blue waters and high quality environmental standards.

The lovely seaside town of Sciacca is well known for its typically glazed craft pottery and coral jewelry work as well as for the Carnival celebrations. It is only 35 km away by car and you will also find a small commercial fishing harbor (fresh fish, anyone!) and fine, sandy beaches.

The most impressive group of monuments of all Magna Graecia are to be found in The Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, about an hour’s drive. It lies in a almost enchanted valley, full of almond blossom in Febuary.

Within easy range are Trapani and Marsala. On the way between these two towns you simply must stop off at the Salt Pans Nature Reserve, take in the other worldly scenery and not fail to watch the sun setting over the sea. In Tapani it is also possible to board a hydrofoil or ferry and visit the Aegadi Island Archipelago.
To enjoy a stunning view over Aegadi Islands and Trapani Salt Pans we suggest a trip to the pretty medieval town of Erice (751 m a.s.l.) which is well worth a visit!
A little bit further north is San Vito Lo Capo, which has a good selection of shops, restaurants and bars as well as its beautiful sandy beaches and the Zingaro Nature Reserve.

Finally, if you wish to visit a vibrant city full of art and culture, we suggest you spend a day in Palermo which is only one and a half hours by car!
