Villa Patrizia is situated at the foot of Mount Pizzo Teleffio that overtops the Gulf of Castellammare.
The villa is made up of three apartments : Bouganvillea, Edera and Melograno. You can choose one of this accommodation according to your needs. The villa has a beautiful swimming pool, external shower, garden, barbeque and parking area. All these services are shared among the guests of the three units.
The house is at about 1,5 km far from the city centre and at about 2 km from the sandy beach of Castellammare. The old village of Scopello with its famous Faraglioni is about at 10 km from the villa.
The owners live in the premises and can assist you at any time, if you want.
Melograno is a cosy studio apartment situated near the swimming pool. This unit has one multifunctional open plan living room with double bed and a kitchenette equipped with all the necessary. There is also small room with a single bed and a small bathroom with shower. The veranda with pool view is the perfect place to have a meal outside.
The washing machine is located in a common area and shared with the guests of apartment Edera.
We stayed in this Villa for one week at the end of June 2009 and found it to be very clean and private. It also had private parking in the grounds of the house. The Villa was small ~ one large room with a double bed, a settee and a kitchen with gas hob, fridge and utensils/crockery a shower room and a very small box room with a single bed that we used for storage. Air conditioning was very good (0.50 euros per unit), though only in the main room. The highlight of the Villa was its terrace with its amazing views and privacy (watch out for mosquitoes). The lowlight was the shower, which although in perfect working order and clean, was so small you couldnt lift your elbows (at 6ft and 13 stone). The pool was clean and well maintained, but sadly due to the weather we didnt make a lot of use of it. The Owners live on site and were very friendly and helpful. It is located at the top of a steep hill and approx. 10 mins walk to the first supermarket, 15 mins walk to restaurants and 30 mins walk to the harbour and its many restaurants. We would recommend SISA supermarket as it was large and well stocked. We ate in Bar Agora, which has a very nice restaurant at the back (unseen from the front) with an English translated menu, good choice and huge portions. We also ate in Murhpys (near the harbour), which also had an English translated menu with a good choice of food. A word of caution, if you are not a fish lover be very careful which restaurant you chose as many offer little else. We would recommend the Villa highly to anyone who didnt regard the small size or the hill walking a problem (we didnt).
During our week long stay we managed to visit Scopello, Lo Zingaro, Segesta, Selinunte, Trapani, Marsala, Erice, Corleone (dont bother unless you happen to be passing) and Agrigento. Top tip, to walk to the harbour from the Villa turn left at the bottom of the drive and keep going until you reach the main street, then go right.
