Sicily, the largest island in the Mediterrannean, is located just off the coast of Italy. It’s home to some of the most picturesque Italian scenery, from mammoth volcanoes with beautiful hiking trails to ancient ruins to beautiful seascapes. Nestled on Sicily is Castelvetrano, a sleepy Medieval village on the western tip of the island. Our Castelvetrano vacation rentals are an ideal home base for exploring all that the island has to offer.
When you visit Sicily, you’ll be immersed in the area’s rich history. The Selinunte Archaeological Park is certainly worth a trip—this Ancient Greek city was founded in the latter half of the 7th century BC, and many of its wonders are still standing today. Explore the incredible ruins of houses and temples while the sweeping sea vistas surround you. Or visit the Church of San Domenico, built in 1470 and full of elaborate stuccos and paintings. If you're looking to explore the island, our Castelvetrano apartment rentals are just a short drive from nearby Sicilian towns, each with their own unique feel and charm.
Peruse the local coffee shops, eateries, and bakeries for a taste of authentic Italy. Be sure to stop by a bakery for a loaf of traditional Castelvetrano black bread. While it’s not actually black, this hearty loaf is made with Tumminia flour and baked in a wood-fired oven for a lovely, rustic flavor.
There’s so much to see and do in this charming Medieval town—experience the best of Sicily with a stay in one of our Castelvetrano vacation rentals.
