From approx £1,880

Situated on the stunning island of Favignana, four miles west of the coast of Sicily, this house is a modernist retreat offering both luxury and a sense of wildness.
Designed by Ncbarchitettura – a practice owned by architects Riccardo Emanuele and Samuel Balasso Milan – and completed in 2011, the house is made up of two independent apartments with a central terrace that unites the two areas.
Internally, there are three bedrooms (two double and one twin) and one pull-out double couch, which can accommodate an additional two guests. There are three bathrooms, two of which are ensuite, two kitchen areas and two living rooms. The aesthetic throughout is simple yet luxurious, with large windows and doors allowing the outside in.
Externally, there are extensive areas of wild garden, as well as a barbecue area, beautiful swimming pool, parking area, and two roof terraces. The property is not overlooked and has wonderful views of the sea, which is approximately 200m away, and the surrounding countryside.
Favignana is one of the Aegadian Islands, approximately four miles west of the coast of Sicily, between Trapani and Marsala. The island is famous for its tuna fisheries and is now a popular tourist destination, with frequent hydrofoil connections to the mainland.

There are many local sporting and leisure activities including snorkelling, scuba diving, trekking, and cycling, as well cultural and shopping opportunities.
