Guest comments

Everybody is stunned by the location. A couple said to me at the end of their stay : we thought we would be spending our nights out, but it's so nice here we were happy to have our dinner on the terrace and just watch the view.

We are a family of three : my partner and I are both teachers, our daughter, Irene, is 7 and goes to primary school.

Year property purchased:  1980's

Why this location?

My family has had this house since the 80s. We bought it when this was still an unknown place, enchanted by the stunning location and the quiet. We live in Berlin now, but we come here at least a few weeks every year in the summer and whenever we come it is for us a break from the noise and the stress of our daily life. We love the colours, which change according to the season, the silence, broken only by the singing of the birds and the sound of the waves from the nearby beach, the smells, a mixture of flowers from the garden and sea water. We could sit for hours just enjoying the peace and the view.

What are the unique benefits of the property?

Although located in a quiet area, away from the main road and the noise, the house is at a short distance from the village of Scopello and close to several restaurants, bars and pizza places. There is a little supermarket and a vegetable market just 5 minutes by car and the town of Castellammare, offering all kinds of facilities, shops and entertainments, is at 15 minutes' drive. The beach is at few steps from the house and the beautiful reserve Lo Zingaro at 1 km. Besides the house lies just between the sea and the mountains, offering the chance of mountain walks to the trekking lovers. If you want to cool off and rest, you can just sunbathe and enjoy the pool, but if you want to keep in touch with work and home, bring your laptop along and connect to our wi/fi network.
