Country and sea in Sicily

It is a simple two floors country house, on top of a hill with a plantation of olive trees, and is side by side with my sister's holiday house. The house is quite secluded, almost hidden among the trees, and has a porch on the front and a deck at the back, out of the kitchen, with a barbecue. On the ground floor there are the living room, with a fireplace, the kitchen, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms, one with shower and one with tub. Upstairs there is another double bedroom with a small bathroom, a small studio and two terraces, one larger with a table and chairs and one smaller where we hang the laundry to dry. There is a washing machine and a microwave. The sea is just one kilometre away, with cliffs, rocky or sandy shores - it's up to you to choose!. Sciacca, a small town rich of history, famous for fishing and pottery, is seven km away. There you will find a beautifull fish market, restaurants, cinemas and shops. It is possible to do several day trips around: to Palermo, to Trapani and Erice, to Agrigento with its wonderful greek temples (just 70 km away). Selinunte, Eraclea Minoa, Adranone, all fascinating archaelogical sites, are even nearer. Along the coast, easy to reach, there are several naturalistic areas, like the park of the mouth of the Platani (the longest river in Sicily) or the reserve of Torre Salsa, both with wonderful beaches.
