Description

Villa Orangerie is set within a large estate deep within citrus and olive groves and it is the perfect example of functionality and good taste in an oasis free of acoustic and air pollution. An exclusive abode where relaxing beneath the fine porticoes and simply contemplating the luxuriant garden and splendid, distinctively shaped swimming pool is enough to get a feel both of the Sicilian countryside and an exclusive holiday.

Inside
A large, finely-furnished living and dining area connects directly to the main portico and is the heart of the house. The adjoining fully equipped built-in and traditionally Sicilian-tiled kitchen connects directly both inside and out. Three double en-suite bedrooms with shower lead off the living area. Large picture windows make all rooms bright, breezy and particularly relaxing.

Outside
A short drive through the estate’s citrus groves brings you to ample reserved parking for three cars, from here you reach the simple, elegant façade and main entrance. Two porticoes, one for dining and barbecues the other for conversation both give onto the large lawn, interrupted only by the blue waters of the infinity pool framed by characteristic, dry-stone walls. The view extends to the valley below as far as the seashore.

The Area

Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Castelvetrano, this Villa is only 3 km from the town well known for its olive oil production as well as its medieval town center with plenty of shops and restaurants. In Castelvetrano, we recommend visiting the Museo Civico, where it is possible to admire the early-Greek “Efebo di Selinunte” bronze statue.

The house is only a 10 minute drive from the pretty seaside village of Marinella di Selinunte, with its long sandy beach and the temples of Selinunte in the background, a unique place to swim and enjoy such a sight. The Selinunte Acropolis, impressive for its scenic and cultural importance, is just a few minutes’ drive. It is the largest archeological park in Europe, a testimony to the greatness of Ancient Greece together with the Cave di Cusa, the quarry where the stone to build the temples of Selinunte were cut from limestone.

The not-to-be-missed sandy beaches of Lido Fiori and Portopalo in Menfi are located in this area and both have received the Blue Flag 16 years in a row for their pristine blue waters and high environmental standards furthermore, they are safe for young children.

For bicycle lovers, we suggest enjoyable rides in the beautiful scenery of the old disused railway track between Castelvetrano and Sciacca, now turned into a cycling path.
Sciacca, a delightful little town well known for its Carnival celebrations, craft corals and pottery and can easily be reached by car or bike.

Not far from the villa is Mazara del Vallo, with its fascinating city center and the Casba, the old Arab quarter, where you can lose yourself among the characteristic narrow streets, it is a great example of integration between different cultures.

Agrigento, with its Valley of Temples is about 80 km away and Trapani, at the foot of Mount Erice, is also within easy range. There is also the possibility to take the hydrofoil and visit the Aegadi Islands, a beloved destination for divers and snorkellers. Between Trapani and Marsala, an hour away by car, lies the renowned and suggestive landscape of the “Saline” or Salt Pans.
A little bit further north is San Vito Lo Capo and the Zingaro Nature Reserve. It is possible to enter the Reserve from Scopello, where we recommend a stop off in the old “baglio” and savour the typical “pane cunzatu” or sweet “cassatella” cakes.

And then of course – not to be missed – there is the archaeological site of Elymian Segesta and the facinating medieval town of Erice, both in the Trapani province.
