If your dream holiday involves a tropical scene of smooth, golden sands and rippling, turquoise waters reminiscent of the Caribbean, look no further than San Vito Lo Capo, Sicily's most famous beach town. This slice of postcard perfection is perched on the north-west coast of the island, its crescent bay encircled by traditional, white-washed houses, criss-crossed with flower-strewn lanes.
What makes our range of San Vito lo Capo villas so special, is that each has been lovingly hand-picked by our knowledgeable team. We offer a variety of villas and apartments in and around San Vito Lo Capo, each with their own special amenities and features – whether it's a traditional Sicilian villa you seek, a touch of modern luxury, or a centrally located home-away-from-home, we are confident that we will be able to match you up with your dream holiday accommodation.
We are proud to offer a diverse selection of beautiful villas based near San Vito Lo Capo. We have properties suitable for larger groups such as the spectacular Villa Aronica, one of the only private villas with a swimming pool in town and located just a seven minute walk from the main bay. Or perhaps the panoramic views of Villa Palmeto, situated close to the Zingaro Nature Reserve with direct access to a rocky swimming platform, holds more appeal?
If your priority is an affordable stay right in the heart of the action, try one of our summer homes or browse our San Vito lo Capo apartment collection. A central stay in San Vito Lo Capo offers hassle-free access to the range of tempting restaurants and taverns dotted along the waterfront and throughout the town. However, with the freedom that self-catered accommodation provides, why not pick up your own
delicious, seasonal ingredients to cook at home? Our Apartment Casa Blu offers a beautifully furnished roof terrace with an outdoor kitchen and if you choose not to cook, you will find yourself within a stone’s throw of some of the best pizza in Sicily – why not simply bring it home to eat at your leisure?

The town itself has all the amenities you would expect from a popular beach resort – decadent ice-cream parlours, traditional taverns, craft shops and family-friendly restaurants – but San Vito Lo Capo is also perfectly positioned geographically to provide access to a range of excursions and day trips to satisfy any taste.
From a visit to the towering spectacle of Monte Cofano, the limestone mountain that presides over the bay, to a trek through the unspoilt scenery of Zingaro Nature Reserve, choose one of our San Vito Lo Capo villas or apartments for your self-catered holiday and enjoy access to all the treasures of Sicily's west coast.
One of the biggest attractions of San Vito Lo Capo is the soft, white, sandy beach, set against a scenic backdrop of dramatic cliffs and the crystal clear waters of the bay. There are excellent facilities on and around this clean sweep of sand – you can easily rent a sun-lounger or parasol, grab an ice-cream and even enjoy a massage from one of the local women.
The beach is family-friendly with gentle, calm waters, ideal for children at play, but if you wish to escape the weekend crowds, there are other picturesque beaches within a short drive of San Vito Lo Capo. One such beauty is Baia Santa Margherita and the smaller bays that flank it.
For those that prefer a bit of aquatic action, why not book a boat tour into Zingaro Nature Reserve or to explore other stunning spots along the Sicilian coast? Snorkelling, diving and fishing trips can be arranged. Or simply enjoy the wind in your hair and visit hidden beaches and historical sights of interest such as the old, disused tonnara (tuna trap) where dolphins can sometimes be spotted.
Choosing to book your San Vito Lo Capo accommodation close to the centre of this lively resort town
will provide access to a whole host of fun events and festivals from April through to the end of October. The most notorious of these celebrations might be the renowned Cous Cous Fest, an Italian street party with music, dancing, revelry and many stalls offering, not only the famous cous cous of the region, but wines, cheeses, olive oils, sweets and much more.
Alternatively, on most nights throughout the warmer months, you can grab a drink or a bite to eat along the waterfront and enjoy live music and the bustle of local life.
San Vito Lo Capo is ideally situated for day trips to sights of interest or natural beauty. Trek the imposing Monte Cofano and enjoy panoramic views of the sparkling Mediterranean laid out below – although this is a relatively gentle hike, it can be tricky in places due to loose rocks. Make sure you wear adequate footwear and are in a reasonable state of fitness. The surrounding nature reserve is often described as one of the top San Vito Lo Capo things to do, as is the nearby Zingaro Nature Reserve.
History buffs will enjoy an excursion to the ancient Elymian city of Segesta, where a magnificent Doric temple and astone amphitheatre are the highlights of an atmospheric, archaeological park. Additionally, the mountain city of Erice, with its charming stone streets, impressive castle and breath
taking views, is certainly a sight worth writing home about.
San Vito Lo Capo is located in the Trapani province, a convenient and accessible spot to continue on your Sicilian adventure. Trapani itself is located less than an hour’s drive away, on Sicily’s western coast. Enjoy romantic strolls amongst the city’s fine Baroque architecture and around the busy port. Alternatively, for a little peace and tranquillity, the quaint hamlet of Scopello is equidistant, situated on the opposite coast, on the other side of the beautiful Zingaro Nature Reserve.
