About the property

Direct access to the sea coast, 1 to 12 people with 5 bedrooms

This is a charming traditional historical villa in Sicily, on 6 acres on the protected Nature Reserve Monte Cofano. The House has been recently renovated and has 3 independent areas: The main area has a large living and a big fireplace, kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There are also 2 separated studio apartments with 1 bedroom, 1 kitchenette and bathrooms. Old farms and villas with typical inner courtyards known as “baglio” are scattered across the area, testifying to its old agricultural roots. There is an ancient firewood furnace to make bread and cook traditional Sicilian meals. The entire house offers sea view. All the rooms have their own independent entrance. The geographical location of Baglio delle Gazze makes it an ideal starting point for day trips to numerous places of interest in western Sicily.

The City of Custonaci: A farming town of about 4,600 is located in the Trapani province; its territory comprises the Monte Sparagio, rising over 1,100m, where a lush area known as the Bosco di Giacalamaro has evolved. The town was founded in the late-1700s; it currently comprises several administrative divisions and an old centre developed on two orthogonal axes around the central Santuario della Madonna di Custonaci. The city economy primarily relies on the marble mining and processing. The Perlato di Sicilia, avorio venato and fiorito, libeccio antico and bottoncino marble types are worldwide famous. Endowed with a beautiful, unspoilt shore, Custonaci is an attractive destination for summer tourists. Particularly attractive are the seaside resorts of Cornino and Cala Buguto, the former being a lovely fishing village overshadowed by the Cofano Mount. From the coast, a trail facing the mount, winds its way past the 1500’s Torre di San Giovanni di Cofano and the Piana di Frassino-Tuono.

How to reach Baglio delle Gazze: I A29 Palermo-Trapani: leave the motorway at the Castellamare del Golfo exit. SS187 then following signs to Trapani and turn on SP16 to the city of Custonaci, then proceed in the direction of Baia di Cornino and once arrived at the sea-front of the bay turn right on the last battered road going through the mountain, Baglio delle Gazze is the last house on the left side of this battered road. Google Earth: 38° 05' 55' N // 12° 39' 49' E

Day Trips: Numerous walks, offering a various scenery, can be found along the coastline: the wide, sandy beach of San Vito, ‘Lo Zingaro' National Park , with its stunning bays of crystal-clear water, the amazing pinnacles of rock (Faraglioni) at Scopello, the Marsala Lagoon. In perfect harmony with this abundance of unspoilt nature there are traces of human life: the ancient tuna factories, salt works, water mills and old harbour sites, which are evidence of the strong ties with this rich and beautiful land. In no time a tall you can visit a host of unforgettable places. However, we will try to give you some advice about those places which are absolutely 'not to be missed'. Archaeological sites: Selinus the largest Greek colony in Western Sicily; Segesta is an Elima town with its Doric temple and magnificent theatre. The island of Mothia is one of the most important Phoenician towns; the medieval town of Erice. The archipelago of the Egadi Island is magnificent.

I cannot say enough great things about this rental. I went with eight of my friends, and we had the most incredible week. Aldo was very attentive in setting up all the logistics, and the people who care for the house were so sweet and helpful. The property is situated on a GORGEOUS piece of land -- behind you is an incredible mountain that you can hike around, and in front of you is the pristine Bay of Custonaci. We had a great time swimming there every day, as well as visiting nearby sites. The villa has a great kitchen that we used for breakfast, lunch, and several dinners. Aldo recommended some truly delicious restaurants nearby, all of which were a total hit. Do yourself a favor and rent this house!!

Tolles Ambiente. Lage einmalig. Sehr geschmackvoll ohne Stilbruch.

  • 5 of 5

Appartement 2 bewohnt. Die ganze Anlage stand uns alleine zur Verfügung. Dadurch konnten einige kleine Mängel gut ausgeglichen werden. Teresa die Haushälterin hat uns nett eingewiesen und für einige Annehmlichkeiten gesorgt.

Wenn man das ganze Anwesen mietet d.h. Haupthaus und Appartements hat man ein wahres Paradies.

Wunderschönes Ambiente

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren von den stilvollen Ausstattungsdetails und dem wundervollen Garten sehr begeistert. Die Lage ist aussichtsreich und ruhig. Es ist ein Ereignis, den Steinofen zum Pizzabacken zu nutzen. Der Vermieter und die Ansprechpartner vor Ort sind sehr freundlich.

Vacanza ideale: casa, mare, luoghi e cibo super!

  • 5 of 5

Quando siamo arrivati al Baglio delle Gazze, io, mio marito e mio figlio, abbiamo subito constatato che le foto viste sul sito corrispondevano pienamente alla realtà, e le spiagge attrezzate erano vicinissime. La casa perfettamente ristrutturata, l'arredamento antico, di ottimo gusto, la gentilezza della housekeeper, ci hanno fatto sentire immediatamente a nostro agio. Pur essendo alta stagione, la zona non è frequentata da turismo di massa e quindi poco cara, nel contempo, è strategica per fare gite di grande interesse: Palermo, Trapani, Erice, la riserva dello Zingaro, le saline, le isole Egadi...insomma la vacanza ideale per una famiglia ma anche un posto molto romantico per una coppia. Splendidi i tramonti sulla Baia del Cornino!

Superbe maison au bord de la mer

  • 5 of 5

Je voudrais dire combien nous avons été heureux dans cette maison avec mes deux filles. Parfaitement refaite, la maison offre des chambres indépendantes décorées avec beaucoup de goût et une vue extraordinaire sur la mer. Elle se situe au bord d'une réserve naturelle. La position est idéale, l'accueil est admirable. Tout est propre et raffiné. Le propriétaire a tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable (cheval, bateau). Je conseille cette superbe maison à tous ceux qui voudraient découvrir la Sicile. Idéal pour ceux qui aiment la marche et la mer, pour les familles, avec des petits, et même des adolescents, ou pour un couple qui veut se retirer au bord de la mer. La beauté de cette maison est rare, notre souvenir inoubliable.

This is an untouched angle of paradise with a wonderful sea along the rocky coast in the protected reserve of Monte Cofano. The region is of a rare beauty with lovely little creeks and a beach and offers an ideal itinerary to practice trekking and mountain bike. It is very close to the Zingaro Reserve that is so praised by the tourists for the beautiful colours of the sea and the beaches. Besides, if you wish entertainment you could visit the cities of San Vito Lo Capo or Trapani or Palermo with its famous galleries, museums and its historical center.
