The Area

Selinunte Retreat is located in a convenient position to visit the many attractions of western Sicily.
The lovely, small town of Marinella di Selinunte with its beautiful golden beaches is only 1 km away and it is the perfect place for travellers looking for a not too crowded seaside holiday.

A 15-minute drive brings you to Castelvetrano, a medieval town with many shops and restaurants also serving typical local products such as the Black Bread of Castelvetrano made from the now rare “tumminia” wheat flour or the high quality extra virgin olive oil, cold-pressed from the fruit of the extensive olive groves covering this area and the Belice valley.

Europe’s largest archeological park, the Selinunte Acropolis, is just a few minutes’ drive. The temples can also be seen from the beaches in Marinella di Selinunte in, what is, a unique and evocative landscape.
Mazara del Vallo, with its casbah – the old arab quarter – and the charming city center full of shops and restaurants where you can savor an authentic couscous,  is a great example of integration between different cultures.

The Valley of Temples in Agrigento is about an hour’s drive by car.
Furthermore, for stunning views in a wonderful setting we suggest a trip to the Salt Pans between Trapani and Marsala and the Islands of the Lagoon with the early-Phoenician settlement on Mozia.
After the Salt Pans a trip to the Egadi Island is well worth it, especially for those who love diving and snorkelling.

Not to be missed, the ancient Elymian city of Segesta with its very well preserved Doric-style Temple and open ,hill-side theatre, but also the remarkable medieval town of Erice, it too of Elymian origin, that hosts the “Ettore Majorana Foundation and International Centre for Scientific Culture” bringing together every year scientists from all over the world. Both cities are about an hour’s drive from the villa. About 30 km away you wlll find the lovely town of Sciacca with its beautiful beaches, fine craft pottery, and famous, carnival-week festival.
