    HomeAway has a great choice of holiday homes and apartments in Menfi, and you’ll find it easy to narrow down your search. In western Sicily you’ll have kilometres of glorious sandy beaches sitting next to some awe-inspiring ancient ruins. Menfi apartments belong mostly to modern constructions, laid out to fit the needs of families, with large living areas and terraces. On an island with a warm climate you’ll want to spend as much time outside as possible so, gardens, pools and barbecues are a welcome convenience at many Menfi holiday homes.

    Things to do

    -Ancient history. In western and southern Sicily you’ll discover some astounding signs of ancient civilsation. Just a few kilometres west of Menfi, at Selinunte, there’s evidence of an ancient Greek city featuring five temples and an acropolis. To the north is another impressive site at Segesta, and a scenic drive southeast will bring you to another complex, just outside Agrigento.

    -Beaches. The coast next to Menfi has received the highest recognition for the cleanliness of both the water and the sand, with Porto Palo awarded a Blue Flag every year since 1998. This beach offers an inviting arc of golden sand and shallow waters that suit children and novice swimmers. There are other choices in both directions along 150 kms of unbroken sandy coast, including those in the shadow of the ancient ruins at Selinunte.

    -Nature. Away from the coast is a landscape of huge vineyards and olive groves. Head northeast and the scenery gets a little more rugged, with low mountains and the lakes, Garcia and Arancio. Trails in these regions wind through pine, and on the way you’ll happen upon fascinating ruins, like 2,500 year-old oil mills

    -Food and drink. Fish – bream, sole, tuna, sardines and more - plays an important role in Sicily’s cuisine, and Sciacca, just minutes down the coast, is home to one of the island’s largest fishing fleets. Sicily’s proximity to North Africa means there are lots of interesting influences on the cuisine – one of the big local dishes is fish couscous. Meat, like lamb, rabbit and a variety of sausages, is on the menu in inland areas.

    -Day trips. Marsala, renowned for its sweet wine, is about 45 minutes west of Menfi. If you’re interested in the city’s viticulture, then there are a number of wineries to visit here. There’s also some beautiful Baroque architecture at the Palazzo VII Abril and the Church of Purgatory. You could also make the trip to Sicily’s capital, Palermo, where you’ll find monuments from a range of cultures, including Ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic and Norman.
