THE TERRITORY

The Agro Ericino, in the western part of Sicily, has one of the most beautiful landscapes of Italy, with a combination of sea and mountains, countryside and cliffs.

This area, in the province of Trapani, takes its name from Erice and the surrounding fertile land.
Over the centuries, the ancient village, situated on the top of the homonymous mount, has been overlooking all the valley below and also, for its defensive function, it governed the economic life of the populations that inhabited it.
Nature predominates in most parts of the area, that, thanks to its mild climate year round, can produce high-quality typical products, including an excellent extra virgin olive oil and fine wines.

Open on the Mediterranean Sea, a series of charming villages and hamlets rich in history and tradition are part of this territory: they are well maintained and preserved, far from mass tourism, where it is still possible to enjoy relaxing and peaceful moments.

Not only culture, art and history, but also sea and mountains, caves and sport activities, amusements and gastronomy: all of these coexist in a natural symbiosis, away from the hustle and bustle of the urban centers, and make the Agro Ericino the ideal destination for a holiday in touch with nature.

Well served and connected with the airports and ports of Trapani and Palermo, it is possible to reach in a short time any destination.

Following well marked route, walking through charming hill roads or along the beautiful coast, hikers can reach the nature trails, castles, churches and the wineries which are part of the “Strada del Vino Erice DOC (CDO Erice Wine Route)”, as well as to the best sites, for an unforgettable stay in Sicily.
