The Sicilian owner has ensured that Rosa dei Venti has been furnished with simple yet stylish Mediterranean flair, and has included everything to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Entering the house by the main doors brings you into the large open-plan living room/kitchen which is spacious and airy with great views over the surrounding area and out to sea. The kitchen is equipped with hob, oven, fridge, freezer and dishwasher. A double bedroom, twin bedroom, bedroom with bunk beds and the bathroom complete with shower all lead from the living-room. A large covered terrace, fully-equipped with table and chairs, is found at the side of the house and adjacent to the inviting swimming pool, we’re sure this is where you will be spending most of your time when you’re not out exploring the local countryside or taking a dip in the wonderful blue sea. The views from the terrace stretch across to the Bar of Guidaloca making it the ideal place for alfresco dining, gentle conversation and a bit of late night star gazing while sipping a cool glass of local wine.
Scopello is the nearest village bustling with authentic Sicilian life, it has a good choice of restaurants, bars and to-die-for ‘Pasticcerie’ or cake shops. Nearby is Tonnara, the old Tuna fishing bay which is now a popular swimming area with crystal-clear waters and spectacular rock formations. Palermo is only 55km away and with Trapani (25km), Erice (30km), Marsala (40km) all within a short drive you’ll not be without things to do and see.
Capo San Vito is about a 30-minute drive and is a lively resort with a truly spectacular sandy beach. Just 2 km along the coast the Natural Park dello Zingaro provides some of the most beautiful coves and clearest waters to be found in Sicily. Leave your car at the gates and venture into the park by foot, you will not be disappointed by the stunning scenery in this area.
Rosa dei Venti offers great accommodation in a wonderful location and comes highly recommended.
