Di Casa in Sicilia’s summer villas in Sicily
“Without Sicily, Italy leaves no image in the soul: Sicily is the key to everything” wrote Goethe in his famous Italian Journey. This impassionate line – even if it is not so proud of the other great beauties of the rest of Italy – well describes the cultural climate and the attraction of an era when Europe’s intellectual elite flocked to Sicily.
In the books about their travels there is always a common feature: the sun! An enveloping ray of light that warmed the barren land, the orange groves or reflected the blue sea, and left an indelible mark on the travellers’ memory.
During the summer, Sicily shows its beauty and is ready to welcome every guest with the usual kindness and charm. For those who want to experience a relaxing holiday and enjoy the heat and the sea of the largest island in the Mediterranean there are still plenty of opportunities. DiCasaInSicilia offers a great variety of luxury vacation homes at the seaside, in the countryside and in the most beautiful resorts on the island.
For those who love the sea and look for a nice, relaxing holiday in a charming location the ideal place is the Resort i Giardini in the island of Pantelleria. Here can be found seven exclusive detached houses called “dammusi“, each with its own little courtyard, swimming pool (which is lit up by night), a covered terrace that offers shade and a large garden that invites guests to spend relaxed hours. The dammusi are low buildings made of dark volcanic stone that with their thick walls offer a good thermal insulation.
Just up from the beaches of Catania, surrounded by the lush countryside on the slopes of Mount Etna is Palmento Malopasso. It is a typical country house situated halfway up the hillside that offers one of the most striking, panoramic views of this region. The unique landscape of the volcano – with its typical, low stone walls made of lava rocks, hairpin bends and vineyards – is the lovely, natural setting of this country house that perfectly matches the cultural, environmental itinerary to which it belongs.
In the vicinity of Trapani and 8 km away from the sea is Corte dei Mori: it was originally a farmhouse that has been tastefully renovated and still retains the familiar atmosphere and the charm of the typical country houses. This exclusive dwelling is surrounded by a wide, well-kept garden with ornamental plants and has a special, panoramic view, overlooking the beautiful countryside and its vineyards, the sea and the Egadi Islands that with their silhouettes standing out against the horizon create a very charming landscape.
