Villa Rosa del Deserto

Sicily - Selinunte


From Noto to Ragusa a triptych of baroque art; churches and palaces create an unforgettable scene with villages that seem to be nativity scenes carved into the mountainous boulders. An extraordinary patrimony, recognized by Unesco, that began even before the Greek temples we still find in Agrigento and Selinunte including the splendid mosaics left by the ancient Romans. When you come you will find that southern Sicily is much, much more…

Villa Rosa del Deserto – Selinunte - Sicily

3 Bedrooms – Pool

A gorgeous family home with swimming pool and small lake.

Location and Surrounding Area. Villa Rosa del Deserto is a uniquely relaxing place set in a spectacular, landscaped garden. It makes an ideal base for discovering the charms of this fabled corner of Sicily. It is only a short hop from the long, sandy beaches at Selinunte and the remains of the outstanding ancient Greek acropolis, necropoli and temples.

The name Selinunte is supposedly derived from the Greek for wild celery, which grew in abundance in the area and Sicily is long famed for its culinary traditions. Although very similar to Italian food, it bears witness to the various dominations and has more than a hint of Arabic, French, Greek and Spanish influences. You can't leave Sicily without trying the Pasta Norma with aubergines or the Sicilian pesto made with almonds. For visitors with a sweet tooth, you'll never find a better ricotta based dessert than the cassata or cannoli. Sicilian wine is also superb, the north-western tip is perhaps best known for its sweet dessert wines such as marsala and zibibbo but there are a myriad of other DOC reds and whites to choose from.

For golfers, the Verdura Resort in Sciacca is only half an hour away. Verdura hosted the 2012 Sicilian Open Golf Championship and features three golf courses designed by Kyle Phillips. Campobello di Mazara beach is famous for its kite surf and windsurf activities and is only 20 minutes away by car. For normal, pleasurable beach relaxing, there are stunning stretches of pristine beaches near the villa, the best probably being the Pineta, which is surrounded by the Belice Nature Reserve.

Villa Rosa del Deserto is about an hour's drive from Palermo and Trapani international airports. The Greek temples and acropolis are all within a fifteen minute drive. Selinunte beach is only 5 minutes away, Porto Palo and Tre Fontane beaches are about ten minutes from the villa.

The Property. The unusual layout of Villa Rosa del Deserto renders it unique and impossible not to fall in love with. The villa sleeps up to six guests in three double bedrooms. The older part of the house features the sleeping area with two gorgeous double bedrooms and two equally stylish bathrooms. This part of the villa looks out over the amazing papyrus and bamboo water garden, which reflects an almost zen-like tranquillity into the rooms.  The third double bedroom is ideal for teenagers or a couple wanting some privacy as the building stands slightly apart from the rest of the house. Close enough for them to be part of the group but not close enough to hear their conversations.

The living, dining and kitchen areas are in the newer part of the villa and the rustic colours of the these rooms complement the gardens on the other side of the huge windows. The sitting room is comfortable, relaxing and spacious and the big, wooden doors and exposed stone walls are delightful. The dining room faces the gardens and the fully-equipped kitchen is a work of understated beauty. The furnished patio is perfect for al fresco dining and leads out to the swimming pool with a beautiful poolside area with sun loungers. The gardens are a profusion of sweetly-scented flowering shrubs, cacti, palms and olive trees.
