Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Cima sits higher than most in the hilly region of Viscari. The verdant fields of rural Sicily stretch across rolling hills to the waters of the Tirrenian Sea.
Villa Cima sits higher than most in the hilly region of Viscari. The verdant fields of rural Sicily stretch across rolling hills to the waters of the Tirrenian Sea, a magnificent landscape of agriculture and rocky outcrops to be admired from this privileged vantage point.
The garden and outdoor space has tremendous character: a simple but elegant wooden fence marks the perimeter, and a rustic veranda equipped with a stone BBQ and a delightful wooden bench provides phenomenal views of the landscape. The private pool is a few steps down from the veranda, sheltered in part by a lovely dry stone wall. It would be a challenge for anyone not to turn the sun loungers out towards the horizon, an irresistible and stunning panorama awaiting them.
The villa itself is well equipped; the open plan kitchen and living area offering a social and bright space in which to dine or relax. Both the double and twin bedroom come with generous wardrobe space, and are simply but tastefully furnished. The property offers home comforts and relaxation in the midst of an undulating Sicilian landscape!

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 with views over the harbour.
