About property

Located in the middle of the picturesque countryside, next to the golden beaches and Capo Feto Nature Reserve, dated back to the early 18th century and today finely restored Sicilian Baglio – typical countryside manor will enchant the lovers of the history, authentic Sicilian character and pure unspoiled nature.

At the end of it you will find the swimming pool (12×6 meters) with the big patio for sunbathing and a poolside gazebo for al fresco aperitifs, all nicely framed by the hedge and the green lawn.

The big olive tree is growing in the middle of the stone paved courtyard enclosed by the walls with the pointed arches – typical of Arabic-Norman period, witnessing the ancient history of this place.

Take a look at the charming stone frieze on the front door before entering the house restored by wisely combining the antique and valuable architecture elements like the yellow tuff stone arches, typical wooden beam and terracotta tile ceilings, hand carved cherry wood doors with the modern and elegant solutions like the upstairs loft and the staircase leading to it.

The ground floor hosts a spacious living room, divided by majestic arches into a dining area and a living area with a lovely white marble fireplace, fully equipped kitchen ant the guest bathroom.

Also on this floor you will find the big and bright open concept living- dining room with a Sicilian majolica decorated country style kitchen containing a wood fired stove, pizza oven and gas stove. 3 French windows are illuminating and connecting this space with the large covered veranda (60sqm) with al fresco dining and relaxing areas all provided with top-quality outdoor furnishing.

The top floor is accessible by the industrial style staircase and consists in 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with showers and beautiful antique majolica tiles pavement.

The location of Baglio Arches is both beautiful and strategic, sunny Sicilian weather, closeness to the beaches for leisure and water sports, famous wineries, Mazara del Vallo and Marsala historic centres, Selinunte Archeological Park and also the Trapani-Birgi Airport with its low-cost airlines makes it a perfect place for holidaymakers.

Surroundings

The position of the property is in a perfect spot to enjoy both Western Sicily’s countryside and its marvellous sea and it is just a few miles away from Mazara del Vallo’s city centre. You’ll be five minutes away from the seafront and you’ll be able to choose between one of the wonderful beaches in the area or the natural rock seacoast.

Mazara del Vallo is a real jewel: founded in the 9th century BC by Phoenicians, it passed under the control and the influence of several populations, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, and Byzantines among the others. Surely Arabs have left their intense signature on the town, a sign you can easily find in its beautiful architecture: a unique mixture of styles, actually, with a rather strong Norman accent as well.

Today Mazara del Vallo is one of the most important fishing centres in Italy, its fish market and giant red shrimps are known all over the world as well as its fishing fleet.

Panoramic salt pans and Mothia Island of Stagnone Nature Reserve lagoon, important Sicilian wineries, archaeological museums and parks of Marsala, Selinunte, Segesta and Agrigento, Trapani Birgi and Palermo airports are all easily reachable by car.
