Villa dei Gabbiani, Favignana, Egadi Islands

On the island of Favignana (Sicily), in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, we rent a little, charming villa. Built in a typical Mediterranean style, the villa is surrounded by wide patios and a colourful garden; the crystal clear waters of “Calamoni” bay are just 50 meters away. The place offers a fascinating atmosphere, ideal for a relaxing holiday.

The villa, elegantly decorated and completely furnished, is located right besides some of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The charming village of Favignana with restaurants, bars, shops and all necessary services, is just 500 meters away. Right in front of Villa dei Gabbiani you can ...Read more

Additional Location Information

Favignana is easily accessible from either Palermo or Trapani (you can fly to either airports using low fare airlines such as Ryanair and Easyjet.) From each airport there are transfer services available that take you directly to the island through bus and ferry boat. Favignana, the largest of the Egadi Islands, a natural reserve, is the most convenient starting point to visit the other four Egadi Islands; Marettimo, Levanzo, Maraone and Formica, as well as many other interesting places like Erice, Mozia, San Vito Lo Capo, Marsala and Selinunte. The island is never crowded. Another plus is that you do not need a car to get around the island. You can walk, rent a bike or a scooter and easily reach the many fascinating bays that the island has to offer. A short two-minute walk from the villa takes you to the beach; where you can rent a boat, choose to dive and enjoy a refreshing dip in the clear waters of Calamoni Bay. Favignana is renown for its traditional tuna-fishing industry. You can visit the "tonnara" Florio, an old tuna processing plant that has been transformed into a free admission museum. The two most famous local tuna fishermen on the island are Gioacchino (the head of the tuna fishermen) and Clemente (his right-hand man). They offer a tour of the island including a meal cooked on the boat with fish caught right in front of your eyes! This is an experience that should not be missed! As the evening approaches, you can hike (an easy stroll of about 30 minutes) the hill of Santa Caterina, where you can enjoy watching the sun set behind the island of Marettimo, as well as enjoy the view of the Sicilian coast and the rest of the Egadi Islands. In the evening, you can choose to eat in one of the traditional family-owned restaurants in the village, watch a movie in the outdoor movie theatre built in an old typical tuff quarry or just relax while enjoying a Sicilian granite or some wonderful Sicilian wine!
