Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Gilda puts its guests at the heart of a breath-taking Sicilian landscape. Immersed in countryside, with rolling hills covered in olive groves and vineyards, pine woods and fields and a shimmering azure sea at the Cala Mazzo di Sciacca cove beyond, it is hard to imagine a more beautiful Mediterranean setting.
The property is finely decorated with a few paintings and small artisanal wooden boats which echo the sea faring culture that permeates this region. The dining area is bright and welcoming thanks to its attractive windows, which offer spectacular sea views. Both the double and twin bedroom offers spacious wardrobes to guests, and the third double is on a pretty mezzanine accessible via a ladder.
The charm of this location hits you immediately stepping onto one of the two verandas. An intensely wonderful view of the shimmering waves below can be admired whilst preparing food in the elegant and well equipped outdoor BBQ area. To the north west of the house lies the private pool, adorned by palm trees and sun loungers and sporting a luxurious hydro massage function. The olfactory delights of the surrounding Mediterranean garden are a lasting pleasure whilst relaxing on the panoramic sun terrace.

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.
