Located at the foot of Mount Erice, this wonderful Italian villa is only a few minutes from the sea and offers an oasis of peace in the city, with a large garden surrounding the property, an orange grove and an olive grove. The property has seven flats located in what were once agricultural warehouses, recently renovated to provide the best comfort without neglecting the taste for tradition, and five suites inside the manor house, two of them with two bedrooms, which has also been completely renovated in terms of facilities.

The location is strategic for discovering the beauties of western Sicily: from Erice, a splendid medieval village, to the salt pans of Marsala, from the Egadi Islands (Favignana, Levanzo and Marettimo) to San Vito Lo Capo and the Zingaro nature reserve. This luxury villa in Italy is ideal for couples and families seeking a haven of tranquillity, with prices in the high season starting from 1,274 euros per week for a two-room apartment.

Il Quinto Elemento Residence

At the end of a four-year restoration, the historic Palazzo Ayroldi Carissimo in Ostuni has also been added to Halldis’s list. Its name, Il Quinto Elemento Residence, refers both to the five elements present in the structure – from the wood used throughout, on the floors, beams and fixtures, to the fire in the fireplaces and the water in the fountains, not to mention steel, earth and limestone walls – and to the five arches in the design on the building’s façade.

Thanks to the meticulous restoration, a historic building that was in danger of being lost has been rehabilitated, and guests are now able to book 15 elegant flats. The market segment is medium-high and is an especially popular option for foreign customers, who have an important reference point in the Apulian town. Prices start from 700 to 1,500 euros a week for a one-room apartment and from 2,000 to 5,000 for a four-room apartment.
