The Favonio wind gives the name to “Aegusa”, the island whose shape reminds of a butterfly spreading its wings, and whose sea has an enchanting green-light blue, almost transparent color that attracts a wide number of tourists and visitors looking for relax and wonderful scenarios during summer. Our villas in Favignana are a wonderful setting for a holiday. As you set your first foot on its land, you’ll find yourself immersed in its flavors and colors: the typical Mediterranean shrub, salty waters, delicious local cuisine and so on. The island is also the perfect destination for scuba-diving lovers: Favignana is actually full of natural caves along its coast, and some of them can be reached only from the sea – moreover, the seabed is very interesting and rich in secrets. Beaches and bays are very charming as well: sandy or rocky accesses to a really transparent and, at the same time, colorful sea. One of the most famous ones is Cala Rossa (that gives the name to one of our most appreciated Sicily beach villas, deriving its name from an epic ancient battle between Phoenicians and Romans (“red cave”, where red stands for blood). Open-air tuff caves are really worth a visit as well: the extraction of tuff has been one of the most important activities in the island so far. For centuries has been practiced the quasi spiritual rite of “mattanza”, the traditional tuna fishing activity. Tuna fish can be purchased in the ancient “tonnara” of the island – nowadays, the Favignana tuna is still one of the most appreciated and delicious fishes in the whole Sicily.
