Villa Zisa Marsala Trapani
Villa Zisa is one of our most charming villas with pool. Just looking at the lush natural surrounds of the 9000 sqm garden and walking across it and you’ll see a traditional Sicilian villa, framed by two elegant porches and perfectly renovated.
The exterior of the estate has what you would come to expect of a luxury villa. The large porches are decorated with stylish garden furniture. One faces the garden, the perfect spot from which to enjoy the estate’s quiet atmosphere while the other overlooks the pool area. The salt-water pool, 12x8m wide, has been designed deliberately to appear seamlessly embedded in the lawn. It features two small semi-circular marble staircases that lead directly into the water. On the villa-side there’s a beautiful vine-clad arbour adorning the garden.
On the interior there’s a large living space (the whole floor area measures 100 sqm). The furniture is elegant and includes couches and original period pieces such as the wooden console tables. The villa is decorated with traditional Sicilian pottery. One of the highlights undoubtedly is the artistically decorated plaster fireplace in the living room which is divided into two with couches and coffee tables and a wonderful view of the garden through its large windows.
Next to the living room is the dining room, with its stylish wooden table and chairs. There’s an authentic old wooden sideboard and a ceramic thermo-fireplace. In the corner are armchairs and a Satellite TV. From the dining room you can access the kitchen that has a perfect mixture of traditional style and modern equipment with the attractions of both a majolica-tiled wall and a beautiful wooden cupboard.
The same traditional style has been kept in the decor of the airt-conditioned bedrooms. The master bedroom has a luxurious en suite bathroom with a marble floor.
A similar stylish use of marble has been employed with the shower cubicle and the bathtub. The second double bedroom has special features such as a characterful bed headboard made of wood and carved and painted according to the traditional Sicilian style of the late 19th century. It also has an en suite bathroom with the floor adorned with wonderful majolica tiles. Down in the basement there is a comfortable area with two more double bedrooms, both featuring an en suite bathroom with a shower.
Villa Zisa is 100% eco-friendly. The estate has its own photovoltaic system that powers a modern heating system beneath the floor, and provides the whole electricity supply. In the kitchen sink you will find a water purifier to save having to buy bottled water. The irrigation system is designed to collect rainwater and use it to water the garden.
The caretaker lives on the grounds of the villa and will be happy to answer any of your enquiries about the villa and its appliances or simply about the Sicilian way of life.
