Holiday apartment Il Giuccu lies in the district of Castelluzzo, framed by the setting of majestic Monte Cofano and the lush green plain of Macari, the suburb of San Vito Lo Capo. Besides, it is only about 700 m from the sea and the beach.
"Giuccu" is Sicilian dialect for "bird’s nest" – a great name owner Giuseppe has chosen for the accommodation where you feel cozy and as free as a bird!
Giuseppe takes care of welcoming the guests; he and his family spend mainly the weekends in the other part of the house. Should you want to explore the surrounding area by bike, do not hestitate to ask Giuseppe for the two bicycles he normally keeps for his guests.
The holiday apartment is conveniently located not only because it is close to the beaches of Macari and to nature reserve Monte Cofano, but also because there is an excellent connection to historically significant sites of northwestern Sicily, for example the medieval town of Erice and the temples of Segesta.
In short, Il Giuccu can be described as "small, but lovely". It includes a double room with canopy bed and a comfortable live-and-eat-in kitchen with fireside and SAT-TV - an ideal holiday accommodation for a couple.
The additional sleeping facility in the living area is suitable for a child. The masonry kitchen includes 4-burner gas stove, microwave as well refrigerator with freezer compartment. For a fee you may use WiFi during your stay.
The bathroom is equipped with shower cabin, WC and bidet.
The owner gives care and attention not only to the apartment’s interior, but also to the outdoor area.
On the 3500 m² fenced premises, you find olive and fig trees as well as all kinds of herbs, whose aromas accompany you on your way to the house and which might flavor some of your dishes.
Onsite, the owner proudly told us about the 100 % organic olive oil he produces.
On your private terrace there is cozy rattan furniture to relax on. Let your gaze drift across the trees towards the sea and in the evenings enjoy the spectacle of the setting sun.
Should you be in the mood for grilled fish or meat, then use the outdoor grill.
The outdoor shower in the garden comes in handy, either to cool off in-between or to wash the sand off your feet.
Only about 700 m off, there are shingle and sandy bays where you can go for a swim in the sea. You can do your shopping at the town of Castelluzzo, 1.5 km off. Take the bike or the car to get there; you need only follow the coastal road behind the holiday apartment.
Many other stores, bars and restaurants as well as a terrific, fine sandy beach are found at San Vito Lo Capo, 5 km off.
Those who love hiking through authentic nature might go to Monte Cofano, but also to nature reserve "Riserva dello Zingaro".
Starting at San Vito Lo Capo, you can traverse Riserva dello Zingaro in about three hours; in between you can stop at small bays to take a swim or even go snorkeling to explore the rich underwater world.
Should you be interested in Sicily’s eventful past do not miss out on visiting Erice, Segesta, Monreale or Palermo.
