About guido serio

Hi, I'm Guido the landlord of the Vine House, a rural house with modern and antique interiors immersed in a 10.000 Sq/mt lot. I'm married with a 8 years old kid and i'm sure this is the best fit for either a romantic or family week!

guido serio purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why guido serio chose Trapani province

I've actually built this house, and doing so i've realized one of my dreams as a child.

The lot it extends for 10000 sq/mtr and the house's north veranda looks a beautiful vineyard.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The house is both EASY to Access and VERY Private.

Enjoy local farmers products and some of the best Italian wines.

Every other properties have extensions of the order of 1 tenth and or are squeezed into some condo type of setting.

Enjoy the pleasure of a sunset aperitivo, with the sea breeze in front of your vineyard, in absolute privacy!

and with the grill ready on the backyard of course!

Scopello is a magic place, you'll immediately start living your own time forgetting about daily routines.

Charming house in an excellent area

  • 4 of 5

A very good base for visiting the outstanding national park excellent walks, beautiful flowers (Orchids) and lovely bays for swimming in. Nearby market for all essentials with friendly bar. Close by in Scopello are good resteraunts especially Nettuno with great recommendations for its fish specialities and wine. Worth visiting are the salt museum at Trapani, hilltop town of Erice, Capo San Vito and Castellamare del Golfo. The house is well equiped with two nice terraces for relaxing or eating outside.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Scopello last year and fallen in love with the area we decided to return for our second family holiday this year. The whole booking process was very smooth and Guido was incredibly helpful throughout ~ it certainly helped that his English is perfect! The villa itself is charming and ideally situated ~ very close to the village of Scopello, whilst feeling very private. The kitchen is well equipped and the layout of the rooms is perfect for families or two couples holidaying together. The bedrooms are at opposite ends, so you're not sleeping on top of one another and each has its own bathroom. All very clean and comfortable. The views of the hills all around you and the vineyard at the front are fantastic. It's a really beautiful part of the world, the beaches in the Zingaro, San Vito lo Capo and Favignana, the ruins at Agringento, Segesta and Selinunte and the views from Erice are all definitely worth a visit. The food is great, with 3 excellent restaurants in the village catering to all price ranges and you can also pick up amazing sandwiches and arancini from the brilliant bakery. We just had a another great holiday and would definitely love to stay again.

Scopello Villa

  • 4 of 5

This is a charming and rustic property in a lovely location -vineyard to front, side and rear with a a rugged mountain backdrop . Clean and well equipped - airy and spacious inside with four external doors to keep the air flowing. Inside the interior was attractive and well maintained. Separate bathrooms/bedrooms at either end so lots of privacy if two couples sharing for example.

A great, shady veranda area to relax in armchairs away from the heat of the sun. A beach and excellent supermarket both a short walk away along the road. The supermarket has fresh local produce and great deli counter. Scopello village is about 1/2 hour walk. We thought being a little out from Scopello village itself might be an issue but it proved not to be. Scopello is sweet but has limited to offer and the property benefits from a more spacious setting and having sun all day long including sun later in the day. An evening walk home along the road with torches back from a Scopello restaurant was no problem

The road is 120 metres away to front but all was largely quiet the week we were there (mid September) so, for Scopello, this feels a peaceful private and secluded location. We would emphasise the feeling of total privacy. Given local facilities it was easy to park the car for a few days and get properly into holiday mode !

Guido, the owner, is helpful and friendly and speaks excellent English and met us when we arrived.

We would recommend staying at this property.
