ITALY, SICILY, AGRIGENTO
Location and Lifestyle
Welcome to this beautiful baglio (an ancient Sicilian fortified farm), surrounded by gentle hills, between the nature reserve of the Belice Valley and the Carboj Valley, which slope down from Menfi towards the sea.
The landscape is marked by the alternation of vineyards, olive groves, citrus groves, broom and daisies in bloom, carob trees and prickly pears, of the precious variety of Santa Margherita del Belice, imported from the Americas just over five centuries ago.
The blue of the sky and the sea on the horizon are the backdrop to a typically Mediterranean riot of colors. On a clear day, it is sometimes possible to glimpse the Tunisian coast.
The sunsets that can be enjoyed from the Baglio are spectacular: during the night the blaze of lights that extends in the distance from Castelvetrano to Selinunte, Porto Palo and Sciacca enhances the silence. The property is located in the center of an area renowned throughout the world for its archaeological, monumental, landscape and seaside characteristics, which are also exceptional in the Italian context. The most distant destinations can be reached in a maximum of one hour by car. In 15 minutes you arrive at the thermal baths of Sciacca.
