In Cornino Bay, an old seaside village, you may still find the white houses of the fishermen who put their boats out to sea from the harbour. The beach, with its beautiful promenade, is part sandy, part with rocks. Cornino is a call for nature lover. From its crystalline and turquoise waters to the Natural Reserve of Mount Cofano, this place offers everything you need for an unforgettable holiday. Cornino’s sea has been recently invested with the title of “Bandiera Blu d’Europa” (Blu Flag award) and is ideal for boat and diving excursions. On the depth of the sea you can see the gorgeous marble sculpture of the Madonna of Custonaci, patron of the town. The sculpture is made with the prestigious marble coming from the close quarry. The villa, recently built, is located in a residential zone. From the house at the west you can have a glimpse of the old village of Erice , at the north the blue sea with its unforgettable sunsets and at the east the luxuriant maquis of Mount Cofano that with its majesty watches over the bay.

We stayed in july. The house were nice and spacious. The pool was great and clean and the kitchen had all the equipment for cooking.
We stayed with 4 grown up children who also enjoyed the stay. Francesco took kindly care of us when we arrived and the fridge had cold drinks - bear orange juice and wine. Very nice.

We were a group of 5 people (mother, father, 5 year old, 2 year old, and grandpa). We really enjoyed this house, especially the swimming pool which the kids loved going in everyday. Also, one of the rooms is a separate suite (bedroom and bathroom) located below the house, which was great for grandpa to have his own space at night.
The house is located in a small village with a couple of restaurants and a wonderful gelato shop. The local people are very friendly. There is a grocery store within a 15 minute drive that has everything you need.
We used the home as a base to go and visit many locations in the north-west region of Sicily. It was easy to access everything within a 30-60 minute drive.
We had a wonderful experience and would recommend this house to others that visit the area.
