Description

The Gattopardo Retreat might appear, at first sight, a classic Sicilian house in the country, restored to preserve its ancient allure but it is much more than that: situated in Tangi, near the medieval town of Erice – one of the most fascinating towns in Sicily. This small, meticulously furnished holiday home, is a delightful retreat, perfect for a vacation far from daily routines and foster an almost mystical experience in the midst of authentic Sicilian scenery. Relaxation is guaranteed by the silence of the place, yet the villa is not isolated.

Inside

Inside, the interiors gracefully combine a picture-like quality taken straight from the summer mansions of the Sicilian nobility with exquisite drapes and ornaments, giving it a precious touch and an elegant appeal.
The outside patio gives direct access to both the saloon and the kitchen, the former being carefully furnished to reflect classic Sicilian elegance. The kitchen gives onto a small hallway, equipped with a bed, and from here both the main double bedroom as well as the rear of the living area can be reached.
At the rear of the living area, a clever design solution has allowed for a further bedroom to be positioned, with the furniture arrangements carefully thought-out to afford an adequate level of privacy to this space.
The bathroom, the style of which blends perfectly with the rest of the Villa, is equipped with a comfortable shower and adorned with a beautiful exposed stone wall.

Outside

The lovely outside terrace includes a dining area and gives access to the petite private pool; this terracotta-paved space, in addition to being landscaped with attractive plants and trees, affords views over the seemingly limitless countryside surrounding the house. During summer, it is not uncommon to hear the typical sound of the sirocco wind delicately whispering through the fields, with a gentle hint of cicadas singing here and there.
The incredibly quiet position encourages jaunts in the surrounds, the area being rich in natural and historic beauty. Within a few kilometres of the house, it is possible to reach the Trapani salt pans or the island of Mozia, the ancient temple of Segesta or Scopello and the Zingaro nature reserve but also the spectacular beach of San Vito Lo Capo…

The Gattopardo Retreat is perfect for a relaxing holiday for two or for a small group of 4 looking for an immersive experience in the Sicilian countryside.
