Description
Marettimo is the farthest - on the western side of Sicily - and the most mountainous of the Egadi Islands - the ancient Hiera (sacred island in Greek language) of the Greeks - is nearly 37 Km away from Trapani, and 600,000 years ago was the first of the Egadi Islands to become detached from Sicily, so allowing the growth and conservation of some curious fauna and flora which are not found elsewhere on the Egadi islands. The unchanged nature is the strong point of this fishing island where car transit is forbidden and everything is within easy walking distance in the only inhabited area The town is divided into three zones following one another in the space of ten or so metres: Scalo Nuovo (where hydrofoils and ferries dock), Scalo di Mezzo and Scalo Vecchio (Old Fishing Ports). The low white houses with bright blue-coloured doors and shutters, narrow roads and Lilliputian-like tiny squares. Has caught the imagination of some scholars who believe it to be the real Ulysses' Ithaca narrated by Homer in his Odyssey poem. Boat tours organised by skilled local fishermen will take you on a discovery of Punta Troia and its Castle (XII century) built on a rocky cliff (116 metres high above sea level) overhanging the sea; and then towards several caves as Grotta del Tuono, Grotta del Cammello, Grotta della Bombarda and also to the fantastic area called i Barranchi characterized by high and large towers of white and grey-coloured dolomite rock. Just look up and in a moment you’ll feel like you’re inside the Dolomite mountainscapes of Trentino Alto Adige. Not less spectacular is the landscape - which you can admire along the different footpaths of the hinterland, immersed in the fragrances of thyme, rosemary, Aleppo pine-trees and wild fennel - overlooked from the top of Monte Falcone (Falcone Mount, 686 metres above sea level). Here - suspended between sky and sea - one comes upon the magic and spirit of Marettimo which has been defined definitely the most beautiful Italian island after Capri by Fulco Prates. Grocer's 50 MT, Restaurant 50 MT, Facilities 50 MT (Markets, Shops, Banks, Restaurants), Hospital 40 KM (Trapani), Railway station 40 KM (Trapani), Port 100 MT (Scalo Nuovo), Airport 60 KM (Trapani), Sea 50 MT (sandy and pebbly beach).

Composition
This house is a little corner of paradise on the island of Marettimo. Rugged tranquillity, friendly locals and the slow pace of life captivate those who journey to the most mountainous and distant of the Egadi Islands. The house itself is the perfect retreat for sea and nature lovers wanting to experience the quiet, relaxed atmosphere of this island. Set on a typical alley of the village, this fisherman's house has recently been renovated and converted into a charming accommodation, consisting of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a cosy living/dining area and a delightful balcony offering extensive
sea views. The interiors are furnished and decorated in soft summer shades of blue and white, a pleasant combination of sea and nature-inspired colours creating a crisp and fresh look. Anyone who loves snorkelling, diving, bathing and the sea in general will experience unforgettable emotions: from the close little harbour the local fishermen organize boat tours, which are the perfect way to discover Marettimo's wonderful dramatic cliffs, beautiful seabed, many bays and coves, such as the Grotta del Cammello and del Tuono. Amongst the various activities on the island are also
recommended the winding mountain paths which offer lovely walking experiences and amazing panoramic sea views.
