Description

Set in a slightly raised position with magnificent panoramic views over the splendid Portopalo seascape, Essence brings together the comfort of a modern luxury villa and the warm atmosphere of the wonderful Mediterranean countryside and sandy beaches of this angle of Sicily. Thanks to large picture windows the spacious, well- furnished interior opens out onto the external panoramic terraces and swimming pool.

Inside

Whether you enter through the main door at the rear of the house or, to the right, the adjacent kitchen patio doors you are immediately struck by the large open-space living area made up of a modern well-furnished kitchen separated from the extremely comfortable sofas in the seating area by a contemporary fireplace placed at its centre. Large picture windows replace the walls and put the interior in direct contact with the property’s spectacular surroundings. A small corridor off the living area leads to three comfortable double bedrooms which too have large picture windows connecting the interior to the outside terraces, two give onto the spectacular sea views, the third onto the countryside. An en-suite bathroom with a shower, a bathroom with shower, and a toilet complete the interior of this splendid villa.
An interior stairway leads down to a spacious basement area containing the games room with a full-size snooker table and eternal terrace from which an external stairway takes you up to the main floor.

Outside

Upon entering the main gate set above the villa you have a splendid view over the whole property and seashore before you and the warm Mediterranean atmosphere is enhanced upon arrival by the typical vegetation in the parking area and tall palm trees surrounding the pool and villa. From the garden, floor to ceiling windows allows a glimpse of part of the open-plan living area in continuity with the outside and seascape beyond. To the right of the main door, a passageway leads directly to the front of the villa where a large architecturally integrated portico affords shade through the day allowing al fresco dining at any time. A brick-built barbecue is conveniently placed beside the kitchen door.

The long terrace connects directly to the 6×12 meter pool surrounded by green lawns, all with a superb sea view.

The Area

Staying in Villa Essence, you’ll be able to go to some of the most beautiful coastline in Sicily. The beaches in this area have received the Blue Flag 16 years in a row for their clear blue water, high quality and environmental standards. Portopalo and Lido Fiori are also recommended for children as they have safe clean beaches.
Castelvetrano, a medieval town with a fascinating history and plenty of shops and restaurants, is just 15 minutes away.
This is an excellent area for bicycle lovers, who can use the old disused railway, now transformed into a cycling path, for enjoyable rides through beautiful scenery. Sciacca, a pretty fishing village, can easily be reached by car or bike. Just 25 km far from the house is the amazing golf course of Verdura Resort. Not to be missed – Selinunte Acropolis, the largest archaeological park in Europe and Marinella di Selinunte, a small fishing village that has a unique beach with the temples of Selinunte in the background.

With its UNESCO Heritage site, the Valley of the Temples, Agrigento is easily reachable by car in about 45 minutes. This impressive group of ancient buildings is the highest expression of classical culture in Sicily.

Also within easy reach of Essence is Marsala, with its Saltpans, the Island of the Lagoon Nature Reserve and Mozia. Travelling further north you can reach Trapani, and take a day trip to the Egadi Islands, which are well worth a visit!
