This 17th century villa has been lovingly restored to reflect life as it was when it was built.
The villa consists of a central body 'ANTICA RESIDENZA 120 sqm', and 4 additional independent houses (Le Spezie 30 sqm, Acqua Santa 35 sqm, Casa del Poeta 50 sqm and the Emporio dellUva “SUITE” 90 sqm).
Through the vegetable garden, and orchard you have access to the houses. Each house has its own private kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor area. All the rooms exude a Mediterranean atmosphere, a journey through the sensations and colours of Sicily. The interior has been restored with local natural materials, and is furnished in traditional Sicilian country style, with items that show total respect for the history and background of things.
VILLA SALINARA is surrounded by nature and culture, and is a few steps from the sea. Time flows slowly, away from the increasing pace of the big cities. It is a place of indisputable charm, surrounded by thousands of colours from the salt pans at sunset, with rare pink flamingos that hover between the old windmills.
We are in the heart of Western Sicily, in a few kilometers you can reach Marsala (12 '), Trapani (30'), Erice (40 '), Mazara del Vallo (45'), Salemi (40 '), Segesta ( 40 '), Custonaci (50'), Selinunte (1 hour) Scopello (1h), Cave of Cusa (1h) and the historic boat to Mothia, only 10 ' by bike.
The white sandy beaches of Marsala (blue flag for many years).
Also the wonderful beach of San Vito lo Capo (45 ') with the Natural Preserve Lo Zingaro.
From the nearby port of Marsala in a few minutes you can reach the Egadi Islands, with Favignana (25 '), Levanzo (35') and the wild Marettimo (45 ').
A day in Sciacca and Agrigento with its magnificent Valley of Temples (100 ')
There are many typical eno-gastronomic products, the famous local wineries producing Marsala wine, Olive Oil “Nocellara of Belice”, the local sheep cheese, ricotta-filled cannoli from Dattilo, the popular cous cous with fish soup.
I invite you to take one of “Katia’s cooking classes”. I promise you'll laugh AND learn and eat some unforgettable food!
For those who love sports can enjoy sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, horses and fishing.
Some of our first guests explained it best:
“An example of artistic and ethical recovery in Sicily on the edge of a nature reserve.”
“After we got up this morning, we went out with the bikes, we saw the sea, the vineyards and the windmills. So we decided this just might be the most beautiful place on earth”
Come to have a magical stay.
