You have the feeling of diving into a Visconti film and opening the gate to the past - a genuine Sicilian baglio and that too about 300m from the sea and with 2 hectares of land. Of course - as befits a baglio - fenced in with low walls. We are near Trapani, around houses with garden and land, country houses and closer to the sea residence houses. What is a baglio?  Any encyclopaedia will tell you more, here are just the main characteristics : In Sicily this term means a fortified building or farm with a large courtyard, in more recent times only the courtyard of masserie farms, while in the province of Trapani it has taken on more the meaning of "fortress" without ever having the connotation of a castle. Square with a courtyard in the middle. 

The typical layout of the baglio consisted of a building enclosed from the outside, with all its openings facing the courtyard. As a rule, a part of the building used for residential purposes had one or more upper floors, where the owner stayed comfortably with his family during the months of the hot Sicilian summer and whose prestige was underlined by the rich furnishings; the lower floors, on the other hand, were used for farmers and as storage rooms.

The bagli (plural) often also contained a small country church, built outside or inside the complex to allow the inhabitants of the neighbouring estates to attend services, which supported the centralisation and supremacy of the estate. The Baglio is exactly like this. A small chapel is not missing, nor is agriculture.

In terms of real estate there are about 350sqm + stables, another 5 villas can be built in a similar style on the property. Property 2ha - with fruit trees and an olive grove with approx. 300 olive trees, a pine grove. From the upper floor you can see the sea.

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and offers a fascinating mix of culture, history and nature. The largest island in the Mediterranean became known as the island where the lemons bloom. Today, artists, adventurers, seaside holidaymakers and culture lovers are drawn to Sicily and more than a few are toying with the idea of investing in property in Italy. Sicily is rich in historical sites, some of which date back to Greek, Roman and Arab times. A fascinating experience is exploring the mountainous region of Mount Etna. The summit of the most active volcano in Europe rises more than 3,300 metres into the air and the fire-breathing mountain regularly spews out lava and ash. While the Monti Madonie mountain massif and Mount Etna dominate the landscape in the north of Sicily, the hilly southeast with its long beaches is ideal for a beach trip. Excellent water quality and fine sand await you at the beaches of Pachino, Santa Maria del Focallo and Portopalo di Capopassero in the extreme southeast of the Mediterranean island. Miles of sandy beaches also stretch along the coast in the Oasi Vendicari nature reserve. For many Sicilians, the idyllic Cala Mosche bay is one of the most beautiful on the island. You can enjoy swimming with a fantastic view of Mount Etna at the sandy beach Baia dei Mori in Vaccarizzo. In the southeast of Sicily, the Val di Noto is a long valley in which eight baroque towns vie for the favour of visitors to the island. The similarities in architecture are no coincidence in cities like Catania, Noto and Ragusa. In 1693, a devastating earthquake devastated the entire region. The simultaneous reconstruction of the cities was carried out in the late Baroque style. Because of this extraordinary architecture, the eight towns in the Val di Noto were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.
