Villa overview - owner's description
Villa Giovani sits in perfect isolation high above the bay of Mazza di Sciacca, with breath-taking panoramic views of the entire gulf.
Villa Giovani sits in perfect isolation high above the bay of Mazza di Sciacca, with breath-taking panoramic views of the entire gulf. The region is steeped in natural beauty; crystal clear waters which characterise the local beaches beckon from afar. The nearby nature reserve hosts some fantastic walks and hidden coves which practically demand exploring.
The property has a tranquil charm thanks to its locality, and the interior is bright and welcoming given the large windows which look upon the magnificent views beyond. There is a simple and coordinated colour scheme which runs throughout, echoing the colours of the surrounding environment. The bedrooms are tastefully furnished, and a mezzanine with access via a ladder provides an atmospheric sleeping area.
Outside, terracotta roof tiles, rough stone windowsills and a large wooden arbour give an immediate Sicilian authenticity to the grounds. The covered veranda is as expansive as it is comfortable, equipped with two luxurious sofas as well as dining equipment. This property feels especially secluded, and its large lawn which swallows the swimming pool (which comes with a hydro- massage function!) is an ideal space for families with children to enjoy. Scents of olive trees, pomegranate and hibiscus fragrance the rich 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.
