|Minimum Stay||4 - 7 nights|
I work and live in Palermo, I love sports and nature gardening, fell in love with Sicily and its culture, in the area of Scopello with its coves and untouched nature still little, I always liked to travel to meet new cultures, love then meeting new people from faraway places always different, my greatest satisfaction is when customers come back again excited to see me and He established with them the relations of sincere friendship.
alfonso Montagnino purchased this villa in 1986
The main feature that makes the house unique is the exceptional view of the sea that has no equal anywhere else in Scopello and I welcome the guests as if they are my relatives, I do everything to make them feel at ease, is there any help for their needs, in fact for all this I always get compliments for the house, in fact I always excellent reviews.
We had 7 lovely nights at this villa. It has unrivalled views over the sea, coast, mountains and the Zingaro Nature Reserve. The internal living areas are small but adequate with a good bathroom and useful second toilet. There is a good range of equipment in the kitchen too. It is the outdoor patios and spaces that make this house special however. The views are spectacular and the outdoor bbq and pizza oven are great for eating outside. There are also 2 cold-water showers in the gardens which are great for cooling down. Scopello, the nearest village, has a good selection of restaurants and a nice gelateria, bakery and coffee shop. There is a very good supermarket/deli a short drive away.
The owner, Alfonso, was very pleasant and helpful and gave us a very thorough tour of the house on arrival. There are some nice touches in the house like a rack full of local wines at extremely reasonable prices. There were also some basic supplies already in the house eg coffee, oil etc.
All in all, it's a great place to spend a few days.
Мы с друзьями провели здесь 2 недели в октябре. Описание на сайте дает уже немалое и достоверное представление о расположении виллы и красоте окружающей природы, но действительность превзошла все ожидания, начиная с дороги, ведущей к вилле - такая крутизна подъема, что дух захватывает! Кстати, по навигатору ( и по предварительному ознакомлению с дорогами в Google maps) доехали без всяких проблем за мин 40-45 из аэропорта в Палермо. И первое впечатление -А-ааа-х ! - какая красотища кругом и все в твоем распоряжении - оснащенная всем необходимым вилла( даже есть русские каналы на телевизоре и , конечно, WiFi), огромнейшая территория вокруг ( сад,терраса и площадка с беседкой и лежаками). Никого вокруг!!! Тишина... и шум моря и ты один наедине с природой! До ближайшей бухты можно добраться и пешком - туда легко, под горку, обратно значительно сложнее, т.к. приходится преодолевать крутой подъем под палящими солнечными лучами.Зато вместо зарядки очень полезно! Рядом Зингаро-парк, там тоже сплошная зарядка при хождении по тропам вверх-вниз, зато за ваши труды будете вознаграждены и наслаждением видеть всю красоту пейзажей , и купанием в многочисленных первозданных бухточках!...Поблизости от виллы и замечательный городок Трапани, рядом с ним белый пляж Сан Вито ло Капо и на вершине горы старый Эриче( чего только не стоит дорога туда!). Интересно съездить в Агридженто и по дороге заехать на белые скалы. А можно просто валяться на галечном пляже в Кастельмаре дель Голфо - это 5 мин езды на машине, а чуть подальше в Алкамо - длиннющий песчаный пляж!
С питанием тоже никаких проблем - супермаркет один рядом, другой Simply чуть подальше в Кастельмаре дел Голфо, там же утром открыт рыбный рынок. Нам понравилось пиццерия-ресторан Michel's на обзорной площадке при выезде из Кастельмаре в нашу сторону.
Мы наслаждались здесь не только природой, воздухом, впечатлениями, но и необыкновенно вкусной едой в виде сыров, морепродуктов, овощей и фруктов и местных вин, которые можно купить прямо из бара. У нашего хозяина собрана коллекция лучших местных вин.
Так что выбор интересов и возможностей здесь огромный как для любой компании (независимо от возраста), так и для семей с детьми. При одном условии аренды машины.
И спасибо еще раз Алфонсо за предоставленную возможность такого прекрасного отдыха , за его советы и помощь! Будем рады еще раз приехать и всем советуем!

We spent here 2 amazing weeks in the beginning of October. All was perfect - kind and attentive owner Alfonso who is ready to help at any moment, cozy and comfortable villa with breathtaking sea view and huge terrace and garden , close to wonderful reserve Zingaro where you can spend all day walking along narrow trails and going down to swim in small bays with crystal clear water! We liked the beach in Castellammare del Golfo and San Vito lo Capo. We travelled a lot across Sicily but every time much more pleasant thing was our coming back to our villa!!!
Thanks a lot to Alfonso for his advices and bar with delish sicilian wines!

The villa was perfect and had incredible views - wake up early to watch the sun rise - it's amazing. It was so peaceful on top of the bay overlooking everything. Alfonso was the perfect host and was so kind in sorting out a small problem we encountered - he is our best sicilian friend now! It was a shame not to say goodbye but maybe we will visit again one day. He also provides a good range of wines to try and you pay as you drink. There is also an outside kitchen with gas hobs and sinks and also there is a barbeque if you prefer. If it is hot, then only walk to the first beach in the nature reserve as it is beautiful. The reserve costs 5 Euro each with no discounts for young people apart from proof of being a student and avoid the weekend if possible - you can see the free car-park from the villa so you can make sure there is space when you drive down the hill. The local beach below the villa is fine but you pay a euro an hour to park which is ok and we fould the western end to be nicest as there was smaller shingle into the sea. Make sure you bring snorkels as there are fish everywhere. Alfonso provides beach towels and an umbrella and ice blocks to help keep your drinks cool. Take a 20 minute walk to Scopello in the evenings for meals or drinks - we went to the restaurant and the bar in the Baglio which was lively and fun and the cafe outside is great for breakfast and cold granitas. The supermarket just outside Scopello provides enough for most needs and has good bread and a deli counter for meat and cheeses etc. If you visit the Tonnara, park above it and arrive early to grab some chairs as otherwise you will put your towel on the concrete which is still ok because the view is so pretty There are drinks and snacks available from vending machines. San Vito is well worth a day trip for the big sandy beach and I recommend paying for the lido chairs for this beach - it's worth it. Segesta is worth visiting and make sure you also buy a ticket for the bus service up to the amphitheatre - it's quite a walk - the views are amazing and bring your passports for discounts for young people. Erice was ok for the views but not worth the drive so maybe combine this with San Vito or Segesta and certainly don't bother paying to go round the Norman castle. Avoid visiting Palermo by car and if possible get an automatic hire car so it is easier to go up the steep tracks to the villa.Thank you so much Alfonso and don't be too hard on your son - he will grow up just fine!
We went there at the end of September 2013 and it was one of the best vacations we have ever had!
Regardless if you want a romantic getaway or a family holiday – this is the place to go to; and for many reasons:
o Stunning panoramic views of the sea and the surrounding hills
o Beautiful, modern and fully equipped house
o Charming garden and terrace with gazebo overlooking the sea
o Close proximity to Lo Zingaro natural reserve and Scopello village
It is hard to describe the beauty of this place; we can only say that every day we had to make big efforts to leave it in order to visit other places in Sicily ?
The free WiFi was a big plus that allowed us to plan the next day trips to historic places like Erice, sandy beaches like San Vito lo Capo or wild beaches like Macari.
Alfonso (the owner) is a great and welcoming host and made us feel at home from the first moment we arrived.
This place will remain in our hearts and is definitely somewhere we will go back to.

We spent nearly 2 weeks in this beautiful place. The house is clean, well equipped and maintained.
The garden and terraces with the plants look even better than in photos. The views from terrace and balcony are fantastic especially in the early morning.
A lot of space for entire family activities and at the same time you can find “hidden” places if you need time for yourself – that was very important for our family with 3 kids. The area is really safe for children – a lot of space to run around, to play or just watch … the lizards!
It takes about 5 minutes by car to reach Scopello – very cozy village with a lot of good places for lunch or diner, good market with local products, fresh fruits and vegetables. Our favorite sandy beach was at Castellamare di Golfo – just about 15 minutes to drive. Erice, Segesta – nice and interesting places in a short time drive.
The owner Alfonso is very helpful and warm as well as other Sicilian people we met. We really enjoyed our stay and we hope to visit this place once again.
