To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is to not have seen Italy at all, Sicily is the clue to everything.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Italian Journey 1787
Start your adventure in Western Sicily.
Located in the extreme western tip of Sicily, along the route that the Phoenicians laid, and in the seas where Ulysses once ventured. This magical landscape has an abundance of windmills, salt pans, tuna fishing, several islands and pristine beaches. VILLA SALINARA is in an incredible natural setting in the heart of the “Natural Preserve of Stagnone Islands”. The ancient and unchanged beauty of Sicily is reflected in the architecture of this old country house. From the bedrooms you can enjoy a splendid view over orange groves and vineyards, with the magical colours of the Mediterranean Sea, which is a few hundred meters from the house. The coast between Marsala and Trapani from the time of the Phoenicians was surrounded by ancient salt pans, the work to extract salt from sea water has meant that, near the salt marshes, are hatched blocks, warehouses and windmills. Today, some of these structures still exist.
Located in a strategic position, in a surrounding area that invites you to discover the treasures and traditions of the past. VILLA SALINARA offers the opportunity to easily visit the unique and historical places such as, Mazara del Vallo (the Italian fishing capital, famous for the statue of the Dancing Satyr), and the best tuna in the world.
