Italy / Sicily

SCIACCA

Overlooking the blue water of the Mediterranean Sea, with its warm and sunny climate all year round, its historical heritage and amazing food, Sciacca is THE destination for remote workers seeking winter sun, beaches and dramatic landscapes… all with a touch of Sicilian hospitality!

THE TOWN

WORKING BY THE SEA

Sun and beaches | History | Cannoli

Assabinidica (“Vossia mi benedica” or simply “Ciao” in Sicilian dialect)! Sciacca is an open-air museum full of colors, overlooking an enchanting blue sea roughly at the same latitude of Tunis and enjoying a sunny weather throughout the year. Three main districts - the Farmers’ Town, the Artisans’ Town and the Sailors’ Town – blend to form the historical town, surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches. Authentic “Sicilianity” at its best!

SURROUNDINGS

Seaside

The warm water of the Channel of Sicily, the colorful sunsets on the sea, the palms and olive trees surrounding large sandy beaches make Sciacca a prefect destination for remote workers who want to spend their afternoon working with the feet in the sand in a relaxing atmosphere.

 

Food & Wine

In the main restaurants and osterias of the town, you will be able to find some of the best examples of the Sicilian cuisine. Fresh fish pasta, olive oil from the surrounding fields, pistachio based preparations, a plethora of traditional desserts starting from word renowned cannoli… just a few examples of the results of a centuries old tradition which will make you feel in paradise!

 

Thermal waters & natural saunas

Have you ever tried a natural sauna – in a cave where the steam is produced not by artificial means but by natural volcanic processes? Well, the ancient Greeks who colonized Sicily found out that in Monte Kronio, the hill overlooking Sciacca, there are caves where they could rejuvenate in the most natural SPA of the word. Now you can try it too.

 

Surroundings

Excursions with the shepherds to taste the freshly milked sheep milk, hikes to the top of Monte Kronio, sunsets at San Marco beach, sailing trips in the blue waters of Sicily… Getting bored on Sciacca is pretty difficult!

 

Mobility

Sciacca is located on the southern coast of Sicily, between Marsala and Agrigento. It is easy to reach from both the airports of Palermo (about 1h30 by bus, with frequent connections) and Trapani (also about 1h30 by bus).
Everything you might need for long term stay is within the historical center, so no need to have a car unless you want to explore the surroundings autonomously in the weekends.
