Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Lorena is a cosy house by the tranquil village of Scopello. Modern furnishings and minimalist design gives the interior a cool and invigorating feel, in perfect harmony with the fresh sea air which rolls in from the water beyond. The rooms have a light, simple decor, cultivated by modernist artwork and contemporary decoration throughout.
From the crisp and bright interior one can step onto the sun drenched veranda; an abundance of lush Mediterranean plants among the sweet scented garden set the scene for a cooling dip in the pool. An outdoor kitchen with a wood fired oven is convenient and well equipped barbecue provides an enchanting spot with a pretty view from which to cook.
A second veranda shaded naturally by pink pepper trees and equipped with a wooden dining table is charming setting for an al fresco meal. Views of the sea beyond add an irrefutable magic and charm to the property. The third bedroom, a double, is located in a separate annexe from the main building, which includes a bathroom and offers an extra few shades of privacy to its inhabitants.

West of Palermo, just after Castellammare del Golfo, the coastline becomes rugged and spectacular. Part of the coastline in question is home to Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, which stretches along the coast for 7km besides the lovely little village of Scopello in the east to near San Vito Lo Capo in the west. Created in 1981, this park and its surrounding areas are one of the most beautiful parts of western Sicily.
Lo Zingaro has been shaped by nature to dramatic effect. Cliffs drop precipitously into the azure sea and the series of pebbly beaches hidden amongst a myriad of coves are as lovely as you can find in the Mediterranean. The park attracts both walkers and bathers alike and in the summer, when many beaches are overcrowded, it is a good idea to head for Lo Zingaro, walk for half an hour and find relative isolation on a virtually deserted beach.
At the edge of the Zingaro Nature reserve lies the ancient Scopello (from the Greek word "Skopelos" that means "cliff”), a small, pleasant village that was built around a 16th-century “baglio”, on the site of a former Moorish hamlet. As you will discover, this nice courtyard is now the heart of the village. Here, ceramics and souvenirs shops, as well as boutiques, cafes and restaurants lie under the shadow of a large eucalyptus. On the road to Trapani one can spot the idyllically situated Greek temple of Segesta, one of the Mediterranean's finest archaeological sites.
