A Luxury villa in Sicily
16 Sleeps   8 Bedrooms   8 Bathrooms     Service Full time staff including butler, maids, cook and gardener

Driving through the gates of the villa  and capturing sight of the handsome house through exotic palm trees is but the first taste of the magic to come. This is truly one of the finest historic villas in Sicily and needs to be seen to be believed. Elegant, grand interiors will transport you back in time while modern luxury will keep you comfortably in the present. Exotically planted gardens and fragrant citrus groves surround the villa, giving way only to mesmerising views of Mount Etna... the toughest choice you will have to make while staying here is whether to start your explorations inside or out...

The Property

Inside: the entrance hall of the main house accesses a generous double living room with vaulted ceilings and large fireplace to one side and the spacious dining room with its beautiful original tiled floor to the other. This latter leads into a second double living area and a large kitchen. Upstairs there are five beautifully appointed double bedrooms (all with en-suite bathrooms). Just across the charming central courtyard with its impressive giant ficus tree are a further three double en-suite rooms. The house has recently been restored and the decor, fixtures and fittings perfectly compliment the beautiful antique furniture and collectable artwork that has been passed down through generations of this remarkable family . All is of an extremely high standard.

Outside: the house is surrounded by sweeping lawns dotted with a wide variety of luscious trees and plants. Palm trees stand to attention around stunning pool providing cooling shade. A few steps from the pool area lead to the exotic hortus conclusus, an enclosed Andalucian-Arabic garden, complete with its original irrigation system. Gently whispering palm fronds, softly trickling water features and heady Mediterranean fragrances all make for a highly sensuous ambience. Beside the enclosed garden is a hard tennis court.

Service: The house is a fully-serviced villa and the expert, discreet ministrations of the butler, maids and cook will ease you through each moment of your stay making sure you never have to lift a finger. For meals, just let the staff know day by day whether you require lunch and/or dinner, tell them of any preferences you may have and they will organise everything else. Food and drink bills are paid locally, giving you complete flexibility to experience the best and freshest local produce.

The Area

The villa is situated in the gently rolling hills just inland from the coast between Catania and Siracusa. The nearest beach is a 15-minute drive away at Brucoli, though there is a wide selection of beautiful sandy beaches within 30-45 minutes. Ancient, historic, delightful Syracuse is just 30 minutes' drive away, while slightly further afield, Taormina, Mount Etna, Noto, Modica and Ragusa (Unesco World Heritage Sites), are all good day trips.
