Description

This luxury villa with private swimming pool (14m x 8m) is situated not far from Trapani, a charming town in the west of Sicily that enchants visitors with its beautiful, lively old centre. The dwelling is surrounded by local carob plants, young olive groves, dwarf palm trees and outstanding scenery. Behind the villa is the Erice mountain, whilst the pool area looks towards the centre of Trapani the sea and the Egadi islands.

Combining comfort and luxury with contemporary design, Villa Begonia offers a wonderful versatility for all seasons. Beautiful marble floors and large window doors create an immediate impression of space and light, especially in the wonderful living area which opens onto a large terrace and then onto a large lawn area and the swimming pool. The kitchen too opens directly out onto a terrace where a table and chairs sit in semi shade below a climbing rose plant and overlooking the pool. The villa has a split level with three bedrooms and the living area on the ground floor level and a small apartment downstairs which opens out onto its own ground level.

Externally, there is a large terrace that runs the most of the length of the villa looking towards the pool and Trapani and having the outdoor table at one end adjacent to the kitchen. At the other end a solarium provides on the one hand a safehaven from breezes for sunbaking, and on the other it becomes an inside-outside living room when shaded. The furnishings and materials used in the house have been chosen for maximum comfort and versatility..

Villa Begonia is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding area. A few kilometres away is Trapani with its narrow streets and alleys, squares, baroque buildings, cafés and wonderful restaurants. A few kilometres up the hill (2.5km line of sight) is the medieval village of Erice from which the Normans launched their invasions and the imposing temples of Segesta and Selinunte are easily within excursion distance. For wine lovers, Marsala is an important production area and the islands of Favignana and Levanzo are easily reached by ferry from Trapani.
