Villa overview - owner's description
Situated grandly atop the nearby hills of Viscari, looking out across the azure Tyrrhenian Sea, Villa Rosalina
Situated grandly atop the nearby hills of Viscari, looking out across the azure Tyrrhenian Sea, Villa Rosalina provides unforgettable views of a tremendous Sicilian landscape. Vast cliffs, fruit groves and rocky outcrops scatter the land beyond, which extends for miles beyond the property's privileged perch.
Inside the villa, a bright kitchen come living room creates an inviting area in which to cook and relax. Bare wooden ceiling beams slant distinctively towards the horizon, as though the house itself is becoming part of the surrounding rolling hills. The adjoining large windows and doors onto the veranda offer unspoilt views of the natural beauty which lies beyond. The bedrooms, one of which is a bunk bed, are comfortable and tastefully decorated.
It is unsurprising that the real magic of the property is to be found outdoors, with an overwhelmingly beautiful panorama beyond. As the sun gently lights the mountainside in the distance, the covered veranda becomes a perfect spot in which to dine and admire the landscape. The private swimming pool shimmers in the sun, scented by the sweet Mediterranean garden.

West of Palermo, just after Castellammare del Golfo, the coastline becomes rugged and spectacular. Part of this coastline is Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve, which stretches for 7km between the lovely 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.
Castellammare del Golfo is an attractive seaside town between Palermo and Trapani. The historic fishing port has a picturesque location, below steep mountain slopes; with a handsome curved harbour at the foot of a small headland topped with a castle. There are still small working fishing boats, and you may see fishermen mending their nets on board, or selling the day's catch. Castellammare has a pretty little central park, opposite the elegant town hall on Corso Mattarella. The park has a small children's play area, shady trees, and benches views over the harbour.
