The Area

Villa I Cipressi is surrounded by the amazing Menfi countryside.

Set along the coast between Mazara del Vallo and Agrigento, Menfi is a small seaside town well known for its beautiful seashores and fine wines.
Some of the most beautiful beaches of western Sicily are located in this area. The nearby beaches of Portopalo di Menfi and Lido Fiori have received over 20 Bandiera Blu (Blue Flag), attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence as well as safe bathing for children.
Moreover, along the coast between Castelvetrano and Menfi, you can find The Belice Nature Reserve, amazing, unspoilt sand dunes where the river flows into the sea. This spot can also be reached by bicycle, following the old disused railway track, now transformed into a cycling path where you can enjoy rides surrounded by beautiful scenery.

Castelvetrano, a medieval town with plenty of shops and restaurants is only 20 km away; it is also well-known for its olive groves and extra virgin olive oil from the Belice Valley.
This is the area of ancient Greek settlements, the largest archeological park in Europe, Selinunte, and the Cave Di Cusa (in Castelvetrano) where the stone for the temples was cut are only 20 minutes by car. The most important remains of Magna Grecia in Sicily, Agrigento’s Valley of Temples is about an hour away by car.
Sciacca and Mazara del Vallo are nearby, both have c
harming old town centres and great restaurants and shops. Around the narrow streets of these towns, especially in Mazara’s Casba, you will breathe and smell the mix of Arab and Sicilian
culture.
Marsala, Trapani and Erice are also all within easy reach. For a stunning view over a unique landscape we suggest a trip to the Saline or Salt Pans lying on the coast between Trapani and Marsala and the off lying Islands. Or you can reach Erice, a delightful, hill-top, medieval town, 751 meters above sea level, and enjoy the amazing view over the Aegadi Islands and Trapani and the Salt Pans.
Then, for all golf lovers, the Verdura Resort with its amazing golf courses is just a 20 minute drive.
