About the property

Villa punta San Nicola

Villa Punta San Nicola is a little paradise located on the island of Favignana, the largest of the Egadi Islands. The property is just a few steps away from the beautiful Cala San Nicola (north-east)

It enjoys a prime location due to its proximity to the sea, while being only 1km from the town center. The large 12,000 square meter park contains three houses with a vineyard, an orchard, and a Mediterranean thicket and has unsurpassed views of the Favignanese countryside, the sea and the coast of Sicily (Trapani, Erice, a wren reserve and Marsala). Also there are various seaside areas nearby, like Cavallo, Red Cove, San Nicola Cove and Graziosa Cove.

Over the years, the property has undergone a meticulous restoration, careful to maintain the spirit of the Sicilian and islander tradition. The floors and décor are comprised of tiles and objects collected over the years in the Sicilian markets. The 12,000 square meter garden, with its vineyard and orchard, overlooks the sea and has numerous fig trees, lemon trees, mandarin trees, pomegranate trees and delicious prickly pear cacti. Also, in the springtime, the garden offers you seasonal delicacies such as artichokes, fava beans and asparagus.

Villa Punta San Nicola is divided into three independent and private houses, each equipped with their own garden, kitchen, air conditioning in all the rooms, and outdoor area with a pergola, a barbecue (2 areas), and shower.

The property consists of:

-Uliveto: a living room American-style kitchen combo, sofa bed, 2 double bedrooms, one of which has a bathtub, 2 complete bathrooms and an outdoor area with a shower, a BBQ patio and an outdoor kitchen.

-Vigneto: a glass living room loft, a kitchen, 2 double beds, one per floor, bathroom + shower, a second double bedroom with a bathroom + show ( this second room has independent access and is not in communication with the rest of the house) , and an outside patio with a shower.

One of Villa Punta San Nicola’s strongest points is certainly its closeness to the beach, only a 3-minute walk to Cala San Nicola. Also the town is very close, only a 1-minute drive. Favignana’s landscape is mostly flat, making the bicycle the ideal transportation on the island. Main entrance form the cemetery square, next door to the grotta del pozzo museo.

P.S. partial rent possibile

Casa Uliveto e casa patio

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo soggiornato a Favignana per una settimana in casa Uliveto e Casa Patio. Eravamo un gruppo di amici con 3 bimbi piccoli. Io in particolare soggiornavo in casa Uliveto. La casa è dotata di tutti i comfort, è bellissima e grande. Il prato davanti è fantastico ed è un ottimo sfogo per chi ha bimbi. Il barbecue con tavolo all'esterno, cucinino e lavandino sono l'ideale per passare delle meravigliose serate in compagnia. la doccia all'esterno è favolosa... non ho mai usato quella all'interno. E la cosa che mi ha meravigliato di più è che nonostante siamo su un isola c'è acqua a volontà e sempre calda. Internet funziona perfettamente in wifi ovunque anche fuori dalla casa. Il proprietario Davide è venuto a prenderci al porto quando siamo arrivati ed è disponibile sempre per qualsiasi necessità. La cosa che ho apprezzato molto è che non è affatto invadente e appena ci ha consegnato le chiavi ci ha fatto sentire subito come se fossimo a casa nostra. grazie ancora Davide per la bella vacanza. Giulia

Bellissima situazione

  • 4 of 5

Casa Vacanza 459771-Favignana.

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana in Casa Uliveto e siamo stati benissimo. Casa molto bella, con notevoli spazi esterni, che sono quelli che abbiamo vissuto di più: giardino e gazebo con cucina e barbecue.

Sicuramente da consigliare.

Proprietario molto disponibile.

L'unica nota che farei notare riguarda la pulizia, che non era delle migliori, ma ripeto in un contesto così bello, passa poi in secondo piano!!

Veramente una bella vacanza!!

Owner's Response: E' stato un piacere ospitarvi a presto e spero di potere avere nuovamente il piacere della vostra presenza !!! Mi dispiace che abbia ritenuto la casa poco pulita e mi sono immediatamente adoperato per riparare all'inconveniente. Per la precisone non è scarsa pulizia ma la polvere trovata proviene dalla pietra con cui la casa è costruita. Pietra unica proveniente dalle cave di Favignana, calcarenite sedimentaria con sedimenti fossili ( conchiglie prevalentemente ) . La pietra esportata in Sicilia principalmente a Trapani è molto bella ma friabile e tende a sfarinarsi e quindi a rilasciare un po di polvere. La nostra scelta di rivalorizzare la pietra non coprendola con intonaco o altro, comporta un po' di sfarinamento. Tengo inoltre a precisare che per una scelta di stile e ecologica trattiamo le pareti interne con prodotti naturali vegetali, meno efficaci dei chimici ma sicuramente più salubri. Un caro saluto da Favignana !!!

An early summer escape

  • 4 of 5

Casa Uliveto provided us with a fine base from which to explore the island of Favignana. The house is spacious and airy and sits in extensive grounds. The outside dining area and barbeque saw regular service. As did the outside shower. Thoroughly recommended.

It is a paradise located on a splendid position! Next to the seaside and very efficient about the extras (bicycle, boat tours, fishing, eating and sight-seen). Davide had been very hospitable and helpful in creating an amazing experience here. I would always suggest it! Undoubtedly the most amazing experience in Favignana!

Che bella vacanza

  • 5 of 5

posizione perfetta, comoda, pulita, arredata con gusto e funzionale. molto comodo l'arrivo in casa con una mini spesa di generi base per cucinare, saponi, carta igienica, acqua ecc. L'agenzia e'stata disponibile e l-unico problema, relativo all-acqua, e' stato risolto nel giro di un'ora. Aria condizionata in ogni camera...niente da dire, solo consigliare questa vacanza: rivolgersi a Davide, "il genio della lampada"!

A very comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

Davide looked after us so well throughout our stay that we didn't want for anything. He had anticipated our every need including providing a larder full of food, coffee, wine and milk to ensure we didn't starve on the night we arrived. He even picked us up from the ferry.

The house and gardens are spacious and beautifully designed and built by Davide himself. And although there are other people staying in the other casas there is no sense of being too close at any time.

Practical things - great wifi, good water pressure and hot water for showers. Bed comfortable. Kitchen, well set up. Plus a choice of 2 BBQs! Location very good - just outside of the town, so very quiet. But an easy 5 minute bike ride when a gelati run is required.

Beach is a stones throw away however the best spot, Cala Rossa, is a 15 minute bike ride over easy terrain.

The whole island is easily accessed by bicycle (which Davide rented for us) so absolutely no need for a car.

Davide' recommendation of restaurant was a very good choice.
