What's special about Mer et Soleil

Jumping-off point

Villa Marie - Terrace - A glas of wine

One of the big benefits of Villa Marie is its peaceful location. Here you can really unwind and let your mind relax. Soak up all the peace and quiet you want before taking advantage of the second major selling-point of Villa Marie:

It is the perfect jumping-off point for a variety of excursions whether trips into nature or to Sicily's big cities and grand temples. And if you'd prefer to leave the details of the trips to others, you can participate in our excellent group activities.


Villa Marie - Bay

After a few days relaxing on the terrace and enjoying the sun, maybe you are looking for a little activity but don't want to go far. Then take a dip in the Mediterranean. It is only 30m from the terrace.

As you can see from the map, the coast here is a bit rocky. But all you need are your bathing shoes to protect against the sharp rocks and the ones that get hot in the sun. Please note that the access does not belong to the owner of Villa Marie but to the Italian state. Anyone using the access does so at her or his own risk.

The mountain and the sea

Monte Catalfano - At the top you have a wonderful view of the Mediterranean

Don't like long complicated trips but want to see some of Sicily's beautiful nature? Mer et Soleil is perfect for that, too: only 800m away is the entrance to the Monte Catalfano nature reserve (north entrance).

Monte Catalfano is a well-kept secret. Even in the high season you will have the nature reserve almost to yourself. At the top you have a wonderful view of the Mediterranean - and also the rooftops of Mer et Soleil.

Old and new

Mer et Soleil - The ancient site Solunto

The northwestern corner of Sicily has been popular not only recently. Even in ancient times people were drawn to the locale. That's why some 3000 years ago the Phoenicians founded the city of Palermo.

Because they could view the whole region from Monte Catalfano, in addition to Palermo, they founded on the eastern end the city of Solunto. And unlike Palermo, the ancient layout of Solunto is still intact. This is unique in all of Sicily - and it's only 7km from Mer et Soleil.

Fresh fish

Mer et Soleil - The fishing village Aspra

Maybe you'd like the atmosphere of the small fishing village - sitting outside in front of a bar with the ocean's murmur and colorful fishing boats right in front of you... Wouldn't it be perfect?

You can find this just 2 km from Mer et Soleil in Aspra. Naturally, you can buy all the fresh fish you want, and cook them up with recipes from Maria Carnevale in the comfort of your holiday apartment. Aspra also has a supermarket and other shops.

Sicilian cuisine

Mer et Soleil - Sicilian cuisine with Maria Carnevale

Mediterranean cooking is easy and tastes great. The Sicilian variety has a very special place. It is extremely diverse and reflects the influence of a lot of cultures:

The Greeks brought olives and wine, and the Romans grain. The Arabs added sweets, spices, and - very importantly - citrus. The bountiful supply and variety of vegetables goes back to the Spaniards.

Hardly anyone has mastered this "culinary multiculturalism" as well as Maria Carnevale, the co-founder of Solemar Sicilia (on the right, standing).

Organized activities
