About the property

Country house, 200-m², unique courtyard. Panoramic view and privacy.

Peaceful atmosphere, quiet and comfort. Country house on Buseto hills, near the water springs of Contrada Menta. Surrounded by beautiful panorama, view of Erice, Trapani, and the Aegadian Islands. It is approximately 350 metres above sea level, near the provincial road that links Trapani to Buseto. In 10 minutes, you can reach the city centre of Trapani; in 20 minutes Erice and Segesta; in just 20 minutes you can reach the San Vito Lo Capo beach and the Zingaro reserve. Trapani airport is just 20 km away. It is the perfect location to reach many places of touristic interest in the province of Trapani. The villa is isolated and has been totally restored in 2009. In 2014, the swimming pool was built that now is at guests' disposal. Free internet Wi-Fi connection available. The building is surrounded by a pine forest, olive trees, and almond trees. It features two large verandas (one of which is roofed), from both you can enjoy the view on the Aegadian Islands. A large living room and a beautiful kitchen are at guests’ disposal. Three bedrooms with a private bathroom, air-conditioned, and well-furnished will give you the opportunity to rest after a long day at the beach or after an excursion to Erice. Charming atmosphere.

What makes this villa unique

My father built the family house in 1976 on an old typical Sicilian building. More than one family lived here and they shared different areas and the interior courtyard, the barn, the oven, and much more.

Beautiful and spacious villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at Acqua di Menta in early July. The villa has stunning views of Erice and the Egadi islands. The pool and garden were lovely, full of wildlife and set in a very peaceful and relaxing location. The villa is very spacious, well laid out and has everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. Pietro was very friendly and a great host, always willing to help with great ideas for trips and available for any questions on WhatsAp. We arrived quite late in the evening and really appreciated the wine, fresh bread, fruit and yogurts that had been provided for breakfast the next morning. Pietro also provided delicious fresh coffee and olive oil from his own olive groves. We'll definitely be back for another visit. Thanks Pietro.

Magical, welcoming, spacious and authentic

  • 5 of 5

If you want a taste of the real Sicily, Acqua de Menta is it! Pietro is charming and knowledgable and very accessible via What's App. He delivered a bag full of gorgeous pastries from nearby Trapani on our first morning. He sent us to perfect beaches we never would have found otherwise, and invited us to join him in Trapani for remarkable Easter week traditions. The house feels as comfortable as a perfectly worn in pair of italian shoes, the kitchen is marvelously equipped, including every size of cafetiere and the absolutely perfect mortar and pestle for making the traditional trapanese pesto. The garden is a joy, with lemons and olives and herbs of every description. As if this weren't enough, the pool is gorgeous and perfectly set in the property. We never tired of the view across the valley to Trapani and the sea and the holy mount of Erice. My dream is to return as soon as possible!

You won't regret!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lovely house for two weeks with 6 persons (4 adults and 2 children from Germany) in June 2016. It really is an awesome place to stay with an incredible view and a nice garden with pool (cleaned every second day). We really enjoyed our holiday in Sicilia and for us it was the perfect place to stay at. The house is tastefully decorated and clean, it was even cleaned twice during our stay. And there is one thing we really have to write about: We've had some experience with different houses on several European islands, but we never had such a nice and helpful landlord as Pietro! He is extraordinary friendly and even showed us how to make the best italian style pizza in the original brick oven next to the house. Thank you for all your help and good luck, Pietro!

If you choose this house, you won't regret!

Fantastisches Haus mit toller Lage

  • 5 of 5

Ein traumhaftes Haus mit guter Einrichtung auch zum selber kochen geeignet. Toller Pool. Super Aussicht von der Terrasse auf Trapani und das Meer. Allerdings Auto nötig, da abgelegen (was auch was positives hat). Überaus freundlicher und zuvorkommender Vermieter.

Exit Castellammare del Golfo A-29: once you arrive to Buseto, follow the signs for the provincial road that leads to Trapani. A dirt road leads to the near villa, just 50 m from the provincial road in Contrada Menta. From Trapani, follow the sings for Buseto, and drive through the SP 52 provincial road. After 11 km, you will arrive to Contrada Menta. The villa is after the springs alongside the street. Suggestions on where to eat in Buseto Palizzolo. There are many typical restaurants and pizzerias at just 5 minutes from the B&B: the nearest is Peppe e Nino, where you can taste the flavours of Sicily with typical appetizers! Trapani, in the city centre, La Bettolaccia on E. Fardella road, and Antichi Sapori di Sicilia in Iolanda square. In Erice Vetta, “la Pentolaccia” or Bart del Balio are great for a snack in the historical public gardens of Erice! Places to visit in few minutes by car: Baglio di Scopello (with its cliffs, near the Zingaro nature reserve). There you can find many bars and restaurants too. San Vito Lo Capo with its beautiful beach, clubs, bars and restaurants all along the large pedestrian area. In Castelluzzo, 5 km away from San Vito, you can relax by the sea, in the gulf, and in the centre, there is an equipped beach with a free car park and on the sides of the gulf, there are beautiful reefs. In the Tuono area in front of an old Tonnara, there is a netting fence to catch tuna fish; even in the most crowded time of summer, you will find a quiet place. The historic centre of Trapani is worth a visit, as well as the seaside. In Mura di Tramontana, there are many places to go swimming, and do not miss Erice Vetta. I suggest taking the cable railway at sunset (about 15 minutes, €6 one round trip) to enjoy the beautiful panorama of Trapani, the Aegadian Islands and the surrounding area! The historical wine cellar of Florio in Marsala, Motya, near Trapani airport, the ancient Phoenician city in the Stagnone reserve surrounded by the salt flats, and Segesta with its theatre are also places you should not miss.
