About the property

Baglio delle Gazze

This is a charming traditional historical villa in Sicily, on 6 acres on the protected Nature Reserve Monte Cofano. The House has been recently renovated and has 3 independent areas: The main area has a large living and a big fireplace, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are also 2 separated studio apartments with 1 bedroom, 1 kitchenette and bathrooms. Old farms and villas with typical inner courtyards known as “baglio” are scattered across the area, testifying to its old agricultural roots. There is an ancient firewood furnace to make bread and cook traditional Sicilian meals. The entire house offers sea view. All the rooms have their own independent entrance. The geographical location of Baglio delle Gazze makes it an ideal starting point for day trips to numerous places of interest in western Sicily.

The City of Custonaci: A farming town of about 4,600 is located in the Trapani province; its territory comprises the Monte Sparagio, rising over 1,100m, where a lush area known as the Bosco di Giacalamaro has evolved. The town was founded in the late-1700s; it currently comprises several administrative divisions and an old centre developed on two orthogonal axes around the central Santuario della Madonna di Custonaci. The city economy primarily relies on the marble mining and processing. The Perlato di Sicilia, avorio venato and fiorito, libeccio antico and bottoncino marble types are worldwide famous. Endowed with a beautiful, unspoilt shore, Custonaci is an attractive destination for summer tourists. Particularly attractive are the seaside resorts of Cornino and Cala Buguto, the former being a lovely fishing village overshadowed by the Cofano Mount. From the coast, a trail facing the mount, winds its way past the 1500’s Torre di San Giovanni di Cofano and the Piana di Frassino-Tuono.

How to reach Baglio delle Gazze: I A29 Palermo-Trapani: leave the motorway at the Castellamare del Golfo exit. SS187 then following signs to Trapani and turn on SP16 to the city of Custonaci, then proceed in the direction of Baia di Cornino and once arrived at the sea-front of the bay turn right on the last battered road going through the mountain, Baglio delle Gazze is the last house on the left side of this battered road.

Day Trips: Numerous walks, offering a various scenery, can be found along the coastline: the wide, sandy beach of San Vito, ‘Lo Zingaro' National Park , with its stunning bays of crystal-clear water, the amazing pinnacles of rock (Faraglioni) at Scopello, the Marsala Lagoon. In perfect harmony with this abundance of unspoilt nature there are traces of human life: the ancient tuna factories, salt works, water mills and old harbour sites, which are evidence of the strong ties with this rich and beautiful land. In no time a tall you can visit a host of unforgettable places. However, we will try to give you some advice about those places which are absolutely 'not to be missed'. Archaeological sites: Selinus the largest Greek colony in Western Sicily; Segesta is an Elima town with its Doric temple and magnificent theatre. The island of Mothia is one of the most important Phoenician towns; the medieval town of Erice. The archipelago of the Egadi Island is magnificent.

A cozy and comfortable villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We (a couple of friends) chose this villa for the New Year's getaway to a warmer climate, and were amply rewarded! the location is perfect, the villa is surrounded by the sea and the mountains. Inside you have everything to make you feel totally comfortable, with a kind of rustic but stylish interior, and outside you have plenty of attractions. It was like staying in your own home, but transferred to a more beautiful and amazing environs... For the more sedentary, one idea for a perfect vacation would be chilling out in the villa and enjoying its fantastic patio, though in that case perhaps it's better to go there in summer. As we wanted to explore the island a little bit, we rented a car and drove around visiting a lot of cities and towns like Palermo, Agrigento, Erice, Castellammare etc. For eating - in the nearby town of Bonagia they have a couple of excellent seafood restaurants. The only thing that we didn't do was swim in the sea, it was a bit too cold for that - but that's for next time. A big big thank you to the villa's hosts!!!

Wonderful, relaxing stay - only one regret

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in the villa for three nights in late May. It was exactly what we were looking for - a peaceful, isolated, beautiful villa right next to the sea. Paola was extremely helpful in arranging our stay, including booking a guide while we were there (Michelangelo is highly recommended!). She answered my MANY questions and provided a lot of ideas on what we could do during our stay. Although we didn't get to meet her personally, Alessandra and Mateo were very hospitable and helped us with any needs.

I would highly recommend the villa to anyone visiting Cornino. My only regret is that we didn't get to stay longer!

A little paradise

  • 5 of 5

When my girl friend and I arrived we were met by Alejandra, who could not have been kinder and more helpful. We just could not get over how beautiful every thing was. The setting, the garden, the buildings, every thing down to the smallest detail was beautiful and done with a lot of love and care. I wasn't surprised to find out that Paoula is an artist.

The only problem is that the gardens are so nice that one does not feel like leaving.

Thank you Alejandra and Paoula, we had a wonderful time.

This is an untouched angle of paradise with a wonderful sea along the rocky coast in the protected reserve of Monte Cofano. The region is of a rare beauty with lovely little creeks and a beach and offers an ideal itinerary to practice trekking and mountain bike. It is very close to the Zingaro Reserve that is so praised by the tourists for the beautiful colours of the sea and the beaches. Besides, if you wish entertainment you could visit the cities of San Vito Lo Capo or Trapani or Palermo with its famous galleries, museums and its historical center.
