What you should know about this villa

Amenities and special features of this villa

Located in the heart of the medieval village of Erice, this historic residence was the home of one of the most enlightened figures of the cultural and educational revolution of Erice, the patron Archpriest Messina: his portrait is still inside the property.
The property is on 3 levels with 2 entrances on Via San Francesco. The main one opens onto a courtyard with a stone staircase leading to a terrace with panoramic city-sea-view (including a view on the Aegadian Islands). Besides, the same staircase gives access to the main residence on the upper floors. Then, the ground floor consists of 2 large rooms that used to be stables and cellars, and an apartment for servants. From here, you can access to a secret passageway that leads to the upper floors with more than 20 rooms characterized by historical and charming flooring and frescoes. Among the most valuable rooms, there is the Private Chapel that allows you to relive the cultural value of past times thanks also to its frescoed cross vaults. The property is sold with a restructuring project approved by the competent authorities.

Erice Vetta: Location and surroundings of this property

Erice, also called U Munti in Sicilian, is a medieval village in the province of Trapani and is located at the far end of the North-Western Sicily. At 750 metres above sea level, Erice boasts a breath-taking panorama. From the Balio Gardens surrounding the Pepoli Castle, the panoramic view stands above Trapani and its salt pans, and the Egadi islands on the one hand, and above the Cofano Mountain Reserve, the Castellammare Bay and the coast- reaching San Vito Lo Capo- on the other hand.
Where art, history and landscape meet, the summit of Erice keeps intact its medieval city centre, in perfect harmonisation with the same structure of the mountain as well as with the surrounding Nature. With a perfect triangular shape, the town is bounded by walls, towers and three Norman gates: porta Spada, porta del Carmine and porta Trapani. Moreover, if you walk down the streets, you are inevitably captured by the smell of the traditional pastry and by the colours and decorations of traditional craft products, such as carpets and ceramics.
The town is now well-established as one the main tourist destinations in Sicily. As a matter of fact, Erice is part of the circuit I borghi più belli d’Italia (The most beautiful towns in Italy) as an Honorary Guest.
