What to do in Western Sicily, a masterpiece of history, taste and nature
In Scopello and the surrounding area, there is really everything you need for a complete holiday. You are in the ideal place to spend time on the beach, by the sea, but you are also in a place that lends itself to leisure and physical activity. Not forgetting culture, well-being and good food... and without having to travel long distances: everything is within reach.
For sports lovers
Scopello, as well as the Riserva dello Zingaro and Castellammare del Golfo is a perfect destination not only for snorkeling and diving but also for biking and trekking, with its woods, which are full of wiild flora and fauna, and was once a hunting area for Ferdinand III of Bourbon, the king of the two Sicilies.
For sea, underwater sea life and diving lovers, an excursion to the Egadi Islands or to the Zingaro Reserve is a good idea. You can also climb the cliffs of San Vito lo Capo and Castelluzzo or climb to the top of Monte Cofano. To travel around, you can, of course go by bike, along itineraries and natural paths.
For those seeking well-being and tranquility
Sicilian beaches can offer all the relaxation that travellers are looking for. Comfortable, safe and more or less isolated, they certainly answer all your needs. However, in this area there is so much more to discover. This land has a great deal to offer those who choose it.
In Segesta, for example, you can find natural hot water springs for pleasant relaxing bathimg, surrounded by nature. In the nearby Bosco di Scorace, the lungs of Trapani, you can have a healthy contact with nature.
For those wishing to delight the palate
More than delight, perhaps, the correct term is to spoil. Because in Sicily it is impossible not to indulge in the pleasures of cooking and put on a few pounds. Gastronomy is practically a culture, almost an unwritten law, but to be respected. And everything, from appetizers to desserts, has a very precise and defined flavour and identity.
Those who love sea-based dishes will certainly be enchanted by the freshness and flavours, but never underestimate the meat dishes or typical products such as cunzato bread. The art of confectionery is unparalleled, from tasty cannoli to refreshing granitas. And then there are the great wines that seal a unique food experience, also with tasting itineraries.
For those who love history and culture
If you have already chosen to come here on vacation, it is almost pointless to tell you that in few places like in Western Sicily will you be able to find as many historical and cultural testimonies, of this quality. But if you are still not sure of this choice and you have a preference for these two aspects, now you will be certain without a doubt. There are many valid reasons.
Where else can you find an ancient Doric temple or an open-air theatre like in nearby Segesta? Do you love medieval culture? Here is Erice. Are you passionate about the Punic culture? Go to Mozia. Recent history? Go to Calatafimi, home of the famous battle. Prehistory? Custonaci with its caves. About half an hour's drive away is Palermo and nearby Monreale, rich in Arabic, Norman and Byzantine culture. In short, there is something for everyone.
A holiday tailored to your needs, for you
We have decided to dedicate a section solely to the different types of travel. We will try to give you the best advice based on what you are looking for and your needs, so that you can customize it to the maximum.
Holidays for Couples
Many couples choose La Tavernetta every year and therefore Scopello for their summer holiday and other holidays. This is due to the intimate atmosphere we offer and the opportunity to enjoy moments of well-being: imagine admiring the horizon and the sea during your breakfast, immediately after waking up. Relax with our Shiatsu massages or in the swimming pool, sipping a glass of good wine.
A stone's throw away is the beach where you can relax with your partner, with the gentle sea breeze and the sun to warm your hearts.
If you intend to move around, you can reach the romantic Balio Gardens of Erice or admire the sunset of the Salt Pan Reserve of Trapani.
Once back at the hotel, the promenade of the private beach will be your favourite place for a walk and the room will provide you with the perfect, well-deserved rest.
Those who travel with their family often imagine their trip as a combination of three factors: fun, relaxation and safety. And you are right, especially if you have children. It is clear that balancing all of your needs is not easy, but La Tavernetta can help you.
First of all, there is contact with nature in our garden, which can perhaps allow you to relax by the pool while the little ones can play table tennis in complete safety.
After having spent time on the beach, perhaps in San Vito lo Capo or Plaja, or having taken a bicycle tour of the surrounding area together (ask us for bikes) you can come back to the hotel to have dinner together at the restaurant and set aside the fatigue of the day.
You can then retire to your room to refresh yourself. On your comfortable bed, you will feel as if you are flying and you will be able to charge your batteries for another busy day.
Holiday for the Over 60s
The fact that holidays are ageless has long been a certainty. More and more customers over 60 years of age are travelling, looking for peace and quiet, but also for pleasant moments of leisure.
Also in this case the hotel La Tavernetta is an ideal solution.
After waking up and having a healthy breakfast overlooking the sea, off you can go to the private cove of the Tonnara di Scopello that you can reach directly from a path next to the structure, where our guests will enjoy privileges, ask at Reception
Once back, after a good typically Sicilian lunch in our restaurant; relax for a while on the deckchairs in our enchanting garden, perhaps in the shade of our ancient olive trees.
If you wish, you can ask us to organise a rental car to reach places of historical interest such as Segesta, Selinunte or Mozia.
After dinner at sunset, your quiet room awaits you, designed especially for your serenity.
The group holiday, with friends or relatives, is becoming increasingly frequent. Of course, those choosing this type of trip are looking for fun and adventure, unless they are couples of friends with children for whom the suggestions given for families are valid. Let us make it clear; you are in the right place, at the Tavernetta.
Get up slowly and have maybe even a savoury breakfast, with your eyes still a little sleepy: there is time to wake up! Rent a car (ask us for information) and go for a day on the beach in the direction of the wonders of western Sicily: Riserva dello Zingaro, Egadi Islands, Castellammare del Golfo where you can maybe do some diving or snorkeling.
You can choose to go trekking in San Vito lo Capo and Macari, to climb Monte Cofano in Custonaci, or to take a boat trip to Levanzo and Marettimo.
Back for dinner, you can choose between a quiet evening in Scopello or taking part in the nightlife of the Sicilian summer, in Castellammare del Golfo, Alcamo or San Vito lo Capo
