The Area

Nestling in the beautiful countryside of Menfi, Le Cicale is just a few miles from the old fishing village of Portopalo di Menfi with its superb coastline.
The area is well known for its unspoilt beaches, which have been awarded the “Blue Flag” (certifying the cleanliness of the water as well as recommending them as safe for children), and for its fine wine production. Many wineries offer tasting tours throughout the year.

The house is not far from Sciacca, a pretty fishing village with many shops and restaurants, which is famous for its coral and ceramics, and for the carnival that takes place there every year.
For bicycle lovers, we recommend the old disused railway, now a cycle path, to reach Sciacca, Selinunte and Castelvetrano, surrounded by beautiful countryside.
The largest archaeological park in Europe, Selinunte Acropolis, is only a 10 minute drive away. Within an hour, it’s also possible to visit the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, an impressive array of ancient monuments, and the finest example of classical culture in Sicily.

Segesta and Erice, old Greek (Elymian) settlements are also easily reachable by car and well worth a visit!
For a stunning view in a unique landscape we also suggest a trip to the Salt Pans between Trapani and Marsala and the Islands of the Lagoon.
A little bit further north you can visit San Vito Lo Capo and the Zingaro Nature Reserve. Then, not to be missed, the Egadi Islands are easy to reach by boat from Marsala or Trapani and the perfect place for snorkelling or diving.
For all golf lovers, Verdura Resort with its amazing golf courses is just 20 minute driving.
Finally, Erice, one of the most beautiful medieval village in Italy is only one and a half hour driving and well worth a visit! This little town is very famous for the amazing view on Egadi Islands and Trapani Salt Pans.
