The Villa is located in the sea village of Marausa well known for its wonderful beaches. We are just 5 kilometers from Trapani's inner city, one of the most beautiful towns of Sicily with a typical oriental architecture in its historic centre. Another place worth a visit is the nice town of Erice, called the town of love due to its shape (a triangle!) and above all due to the fact that in ancient time (X b.C) it was the settlement of a so called eternal fire, a lighthouse that spread from the top of its mountain were sacred prostitution took place (the temple of Venus, known by all the sailors). Marsala is just 20 kilometers away and it is worth a visit. Here you can’t miss an excursion to the island of Mozia were archeology and nature walk arm in arm. Almost 20 kilometers away there are the ruins of Segesta, a masterpiece of archeology here in Sicily. Food? Of course fish, the "Busiate alla trapanese” (pasta) and "cannoli "(the ricotta cheese of Trapani is known as the best in Sicily).
