Closest Market: 1 km - Closest restaurant: 0,1 kms - Closest Piazza (or center): 0,3 kms
This villa is located inside an exclusive area in the picturesque fishermen's village of Cornino, just a few steps away from the promenade and the town facilities. But what make this place a precious pearl in Sicily it's the fantastic gulf determined by two renowned capes: Erice (Worldwide famous) on the South and the Natural Reserve of Monte Cofano (1 km away from the villa) on the North!
This area is in development, with a lot of new and exclusive villas, full of greenery and tipically built with the wonderful local stone.
Custonaci is a lovely town, famous all over the world for its fine marble.
We have a cave (Grotta Mangiapane) where until 50 years ago our ancestors lived, inside low and characteristic houses!
It is located in the harbour of Cornino, by the sea.
Just by the cave, along the promenade of the wonderful beach of Cornino you may find the entrance for a pillar of Nature in Sicily: Monte Cofano.
Have a nice walk among breathtaking landscapes, archaeology and a Tonnara
Just 15 km’s away from Custonaci here it is San Vito Lo Capo, a masterpiece of tourism in Sicily and from where you can visit the Zingaro, a natural reserve that has many “calette”, corners of golden beaches, a sort of Paradise.
Erice, one of the most beautiful Sicilian hamlets, is 10 km’s away. This medieval town is said the “town of love”, since here there was an eternal fire, just on top of the mountain, that during the ancient times (from at least VII b.C.) attracted the sailors of the Mediterranean due the presence of the “ancelle di Venere” (handmaids of Aphrodite). You can still see the Pozzo di Venere (from where the eternal fire emanated) in the gorgeous castle. In Erice you can have a walk in the past, along its courtyards, narrow alleys, its stone everywhere, the megalithic town walls and … the Ericini (cookies)!!!
Trapani its 10 km’s away and my suggestion is to visit the Arab style downtown, the outdoor fish market and to take a boat for the Egadi islands.
Thirty kilometers away from Custonaci you can arrive to Marsala and the Stagnone an archipelago where stand the island of Mozia (photo) a masterpiece of archaeology and nature. The Stagnone is also a sort of outdoor museum with the renowned salt works.
Castellammare del Golfo lasts 10 km’s: it’s a very beautiful town with a gorgeous Playa beach.
And, at last, I suggest you visit Segesta (25 km’s): temple, castle, mosque.
That’s my menù: Cous Cous with fish; soup of Cassatelle di Ricotta.
The Busiate pasta: or alla trapanese; or with the Zerro Grattato (fish); or with ragù di Maiale (pork); or allo scoglio (with sea fruits)
Pane condito “cunzatu” and a Rianata (a sort of pizza).
Sweets: sfinge; cassatelle fritte; biscotti di fico; cannoli siciliani; pasta reale; gelati and granite.
