Description

Casa Melograno is a lovely old house typical of the Selinunte countryside. This large property consists of two units, the Casa Melograno and the owner’s house, they are completely indipendent. The house has recently been renovated in good taste and with great care to detail. The architecture, both outside and in, was fully respected using typical local building materials such as terracotta roofing tiles or the terracotta flooring inside.

The charming and panoramic location of Casa Melograno, at the top of the property, affords splendid views over the well tended countryside surrounding the property (olive trees and vineyards) and of the sea, which is just 2 km away.

Inside
On the ground floor a cozy living room opens into a large kitchen and dining area, two comfortable double bedrooms have en-suite bathroom. A staircase to one side leads up to the first floor with a small study room and one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Casa Melograno both from living room and from kitchen has direct access to the outside terrace.

Outside
A very nice pergola completes the ground floor with a wooden dining suite ideal for open air dinner or lunch and relaxing moments with the view of the pool and the valley.
By walking a few meters through the garden you’ll reach the gorgeous and relaxing 5x14m swimming pool which gives you a wonderful view over the amazing landscape.
You’ll have the sensation of swimming in the valley.

The Area

You can easily reach many popular destinations in western Sicily from this house.

It is 10 minutes’ drive from Marinella di Selinunte, a pretty fishing village on the coast with a long sandy beach, which is still not too touristy. The perfect place for travellers looking for a seaside holiday away from the crowds.
About 15 kilometres away is Castelvetrano, a medieval town with a fascinating history and plenty of shops and restaurants. We also recommend visiting the Museo Civico, where it is possible to see the “Efebo di Selinunte”, which dates back to the Bronze Age. In Castelvetrano you can taste very good typical local products such as the Black Bread of Castelvetrano, made with whole-grain flour from an ancient Sicilian durum wheat called Tumminia. The town is also well known for its olive production and extra virgin olive oil from the Belice valley.
Selinunte Acropolis, the largest archaeological park of Europe, is just a few minutes drive and it is a must when travelling in this part of the island. Nearby it is also possible to visit the Cave di Cusa, where the people of Selinunte extracted the stone to build their temples.
Not far from the villa is Mazara del Vallo, with its charming old centre, restaurants and shops, and the Casbah, an old Arabic neighbourhood with characteristic narrow streets, which is a great example of integration between different cultures.

About 90 km away is Agrigento, with its Valley of the Temples.
Within easy range is Trapani, where it’s also possible to take the hydrofoil and visit the magical Aegadi Archipelago, a popular destination for diving and snorkelling.
You simply cannot miss watching the sunset in the evocative landscape of the Trapani and Paceco Salt Pans Nature Reserve and the Islands of the Lagoon, situated between Trapani and Marsala, an hour away by car. A little bit further north is San Vito Lo Capo, which has a good selection of shops, restaurants (don’t forget to try their famous Cous Cous!) and bars, beautiful sandy beaches, and the Zingaro Natural Reserve. It is also possible to access the Reserve from Scopello, where we recommend visiting the old “baglio”, a timeless place where you can taste the typical “pane cunzatu” or a very nice “cassatella”.

And then of course – also not to be missed – there are the ancient Greek village of Segesta and the very nice medieval town of Erice both in Trapani province.
