The agriturismo

The farm is located about 90 m above sea level, in the district of Misiliscemi, clearly of Arabic origin starting from the name (manzil escemmu: high place where water flows). The property is surrounded by a vast citrus orchard, immersed in the lush green of the olive groves and vineyards on a sunny hillside overlooking the western coast of Sicily, where you can enjoy the spectacular Egadi sunsets that stand out in a sea of light.

The accommodation

The beam (from the Arab word rahal, a place to rest) that hosts the farm dates back to the first years of 1900. The recent renovation, in total respect of the original architecture, gave back splendour to the old cellar turned into a wide dining room and TV room.  The former warehouses have been renovated and turned into two family rooms (two bedrooms with a bathroom in common)  with 4/6 beds, nine rooms with 2/3 beds, all of them with bathroom, two of them with double bedroom and bathroom access for disabled people. The rooms, simply furnished but with good taste, remind the old fashion style and have iron beds, floors in old bricks and are equipped with heating, intercom service, telephone and fax.  

To guests who stay overnight we reserve an entire area of the structure rich of comfort.
The dishes prepared in the kitchen put the emphasis on authenticity and freshness. We kept intact the flavour of Trapani thanks to the precious teachings of the elders of the family. All the tasty preparations exploit the natural availability of the garden and the productions of the company: the wolverine eliche, with yellow squash, peppers, pistachios, and fresh pasta, omelette with mint, or cottage cheese and, again, couscous with meat and vegetables, the taroncioli, specialty of fresh fried tuma cheese, peppers with breadcrumbs, caponata and many other tasty dishes, including pasquarola sausage and lard rabbit or the ricotta cassatelle, typical sweets of the area. 

You can also buy our farm productions: the extra virgin olive oil, citrus, eggs, season fruit and our conserves in general. Moreover, the farm can provide typical dairy products on demand such as ricotta, tuma cheese, sheep’s cheese and also local honey and wine.

For children there is a playground with swings and slides, between the prickly pears and the green, accompanied by a bocce court for grown up children, but you can also take guided tours within the company, to the breeding of animals . You can take relaxing walks in the surrounding countryside or, for those who wish, some excursions, including tours through the many tourist attractions in the province of Trapani situated  just a few minutes from the company

In the lush garden next to the company, as well as olives and grapes, the company also produces beautiful citrus; in particular, in the right season, you can collect and consume the tasty and juicy oranges of varieties “Naveline "and" Washington ", precious grapefruits and fine lemons.

The company also has a SPA with Jacuzzi and Turkish bath where you can also relax with regenerating massages.  

Activities and surrounding

This farm, for its wonderful location, is suitable as a starting point for many excursions and visits. A short drive and you can reach the Natural Reserve of Saline of Trapani and Paceco, where majestic and austere windmills are among the last bastions of precious wetlands, a Mecca for rich fauna of rare or quite extinct  species such as the Knight of Italy, the Flamingo, the Avocet. The area is known not only for the production of sea salt , but also for the red garlic and winter melons.
Always near the farm, there is the Natural Reserve of the Tin, which includes in its sleepy lagoon, one of the most important archaeological treasures: the islet of Mothia that for centuries hid to the world the treasures of the Phoenician culture that lived and prospered there in the VIII century BC. Just in front of the Lagoon, a few miles from the coast, into a triangle of clear water, the archipelago of Egadi, a place where the myth is interlaced with history and tradition.

Favignana, with its incredible and spectacular limestone caves that shaped its look, is famous for the massacre - the ancient tuna fishing - that still takes place at the end of May, which provides, in addition to fresh fish, the very good botargo to taste over spaghetti or in oil. Levanzo, a true paradise for those who love peace, or want to rediscover the roots of our civilisation, possesses artistic evidence from the upper Palaeolithic hidden in the cave of Genovese. Marettimo, the most mountainous, rugged, steep and wild of the three sisters, fully deserves the name the Greeks gave it: "Hiera", that is the Sacred one, true temple of nature.

Other places that you can reach are the Reserve of the Gypsy, the first reserve established in Sicily, a true sanctuary of nature, a fantastic theory of white pebbly coves surrounded by an incredible turquoise water that fades toward the cobalt. And again you can visit the Mouth Reserve of the Belice River, a strip of land that closely resembles the scenery of the Maghreb coasts, a continuous interweaving of dunes that slope gently toward the coast where the rare sea turtle Caretta comes to depose its eggs.

For those who love the historical and archaeological journeys, further to the already quoted Mothia, it is possible to visit the most important Elymian - Punic cities of the past: Erice, a magnificent synthesis of myth and history , art and culture, landscape and environment, fantasy and reality and Segesta, with its mythic temple and majestic theatre, a Punic counterpart of the Greek Selinunte very rich museum of civilisation, a metropolis of ancient times, with an incredible number of temples built with the material extracted in the Caves of Cusa. The area is famous for the production of dark bread of Castelvetrano and of the vastedda from Belice.

    Bob and I were welcomed as we checked in to our room having just arrived from the United States. A little hungry, Adriano came and introduced himself to us and made a cheese and meat platter. He is a very professional waiter who takes great pride in his service. He made sure we had everything we needed and more. They have a wonderful menu. My husband eats gluten free and every effort was made from breakfast to dinner that his meals were prepared and presented beautifully. There were lovely cakes and breads every morning. The breakfast spread is quite lovely. I know gluten free is not easy to bake, but the chef did a great job! Speaking of breakfast, Valentina always greeted us with a smile every morning and prepared our coffee. She was very helpful in answering all of our questions. We arrived during low season, just a few other people were here now and then. We stayed four days. The agriturismo is tucked away in olive trees and vineyards. The staff can speak English fairly well. They were so helpful!

    "The place everyone wants to find. "

    The Agriturismo Vultaggio, in its simplicity offers you everything. The genuineness of the farm passes from the availability of the staff, from the dishes offered, from the unique place, from the beauty of the rooms, from the SPA ... The professionalism of the staff, which takes care of every little detail, makes the customer feel at home. At the wellness center, professionalism and customer care are the cherry on the cake, of an enchanting place; Coming to this farm the transition from the SPA can not miss. Easy to reach from Palermo, a stone's throw from Trapani, Erice and the Egadi, which can be admired from here.
