Description

Taormina, Mt. Etna, Siracusa and the coast of Sicily are easy day trips from this wonderful location. The rural setting of the villa and the large terraces provide for relaxed gatherings at the beginning and end of the day. In addition, the beautiful pool beckons on those warm days… It is hard to beat this destination! (3 hectares) Originally constructed over 500 years ago, this 15th century villa was lovingly restored in 2001 and consists of three separate residences on different floors, of which this is one. Each residence is very private and has its own entrance. The villa sits on a hillside and views overlook the Graniti River valley, covered in orange, lemon, and almond groves. The apartments share gardens graced by 500-year old olive trees, flowers, fruit and nut trees, and multiple terraces for dining or sunbathing. The shared swimming pool (5m x 10m; 0. 9m-2. 7m deep, open May 1 - Oct 31) is newly built, surrounded by fountains, statuary, lounge chairs, tables, and outdoor showers. Palm trees and tropical plants complete the setting. The villa's original colonnade, characterized by grand arches, is lighted by a series of ceramic chandeliers designed expressly for the villa. The villa itself is accessed via a paved, two-lane road. There is a large, gated parking area adjacent to the villa with room for at least 10 cars.
