Contemporary villa with heated swimming pool
overlooking the Egadi islands


Marsala, TP









This cool, stylish villa is located on a hillside above the town of Marsala, the Egadi islands and the ‘Stagnone’ lagoon and nature reserve, and is immersed in a wood of oak, holm oak and centuries old trees, as well as abundant ferula communis, the fennel-like plant that gives Ferula its name. The vegetation parts before the villa to allow for an enchanting view of the Egadi islands from the pool and the terrace – lovely at any time of day, but definitely at its most magical at sunset.

Ferula is a contemporary villa set on two levels. On the first, ground levek, is a large open space with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and living room. Large sliding windows give pleasant views of the swimming pool and garden. Also on this level are two bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite bathroom – the other is smaller and more intimate.
A stylish staircase – itself a work of art – leads down to a wellness room (sauna and massage area) and then to the lower floor of the villa, with another 3 bedrooms, all large and spacious with en-suite bathrooms. An extensive and luxuriant garden surrounds the house, part of it retained as woodland, the other part as a “sustainable garden” where – despite its well-kept appearance — nature is master.

The beautiful pool, which can be heated on request, is located in front of the house, and boasts a breathtaking view of the Egadi islands of Levanzo and Marettimo. As we said before, at sunset, this beautiful view becomes truly magical!

We like

Having a drink by the pool while admiring the Egadi islands at sunset.
Enjoying the coolness of living surrounded by forest – an absolute and rare joy in high summer
Taking advantage of the best kite-surfing spot in Sicily — just a few kilometers from the villa
Eating Marsala’s famous fish couscous
Strolling along the ‘via della Sala’ at sunset and visiting Motya – the small island accessible by boat or on foot depending on the tides and home to the ruins of a Phoenician settlement

We think

Ferula is ideal for groups of family or friends, and is particularly perfect for anyone who loves kite surfing, because it is very close to the most beautiful kite spots on the island.

Things to do

Some things not to miss in you are staying at Ferula.

  • Visit Segesta, the most perfectly preserved and magically located of all Sicily’s Greek temples, rising, apparently almost intact, among unspoilt and undulating green hills that are covered with wild flowers in spring.
  • The medieval town of Erice.
  • Visits and tastings in the numerous wineries as Cantine Pellegrino
  • Visit Mothia the most extensive Carthaginian site in Italy.
  • Visit Trapani, a salty old port – still a little rough around the edges – but with recently restored and gentrified historical centre. It is the western-most port in Sicily, and as you might expect of somewhere which has strong links with North Africa there is a distinct Mahgreb aesthetic to its stark cubic houses, sun-beaten streets and wind-thrashed palms.
