On our own Sicily trip we have learned to know and to love the area around Sciacca. The harbor town has preserved its original charm with its hillside old town and it is still a secret tip among tourists.
It is known for its ceramic manufactures. In the narrow alleyways, there are numerous shops offering the hand-painted plates, bowls, figures and Maiolica tiles. On Saturday the weekly market takes place on Piazza Noceto. It is always a special experience to watch the "Saccenzi" (so the citizens of Sciacca are called) while trading and haggleing.
In the harbor every day you can buy the fresh fish directly from the fishers.
This pretty, private apartment is located in a Baglio (so are called the traditional farms, which look like small fortresses), just 10 km outside the town.
The farm is run by Ignazio, a passionate beekeeper. He cultivates the fields, olive groves and orange and lemon cultivation around the farm.The near lovly beaches are easily reachable (7 km).
Ground floor, living room with sofa bed, via a spiral staircase one reaches the gallery on which is a double bed, a bathroom with shower/WC. One double bedroom, one bedroom with a single bed, a bathroom with shower/WC. Outdoor area with table and chairs on the terrace in front of the apartment door.

Note: Any Italian municipal administration is free to introduce a so-called "tassa di soggiorno" (tourist tax) for holiday makers. Since this additional, compulsory charge can be levied from one day to the next and varies from place to place in terms of altitude and duration, Toscana Sì can not provide any binding information.
Heavenly peace and authentic Sicilian country life.
The farm is still running, so that you can find some agricultural implements in the courtyard.
