Villa for sale in Trapani. Over the decades, the heirs, owners of the estate, made extensions to the original building, without changing its historical essence. Inside, the villa has architectural features typical of the place and the time of construction. For example: the “cotto” of the floors, the marble of the stairs in the typical Trapani style and the cross vaults with round arches in the rooms on the ground floor.
This villa for sale in Trapani develops an area of about 1200sqm around a central courtyard. The premises closest to the entrance were, at that time, used as stables for horses and, even today, in some of them. Still today we can see the remains of ancient mangers, while the rest has been transformed into warehouses for agricultural activities. This activity was carried out all around in the surrounding lands. The central body of the Villa was, instead, intended as a residence for the family of the Nobles, where on the lower floors there are the dining rooms, the living rooms and finally the kitchens and on the upper floors the bedrooms as well as an access reserved to a small tower with the effigy of the Madonnina that watched over the entire property.

There are also several rooms on the property, including a chapel topped by a cross with a small bronze bell. Some underground rooms used in part as cisterns or as sirocco chambers for the hottest summer days. An imposing garden, of about 4000sqm, stands behind the residential part of the Villa. The property is bordered by ancient boundary walls, now partially ruined. A series of paths allow it to be easily passed through the centuries-old plants inside.
All around the Villa, for 25 hectares, the agricultural land of relevance develops, crossed in the front by a long tree-lined avenue, which leads to the access of the Villa itself. The property enjoys an absolute view of the surroundings and in particular from its terraces it is possible to admire the Egadi Islands, the port and the historic center of the city of Trapani with Mount Erice dominating it and more distant the city of Marsala.
