Within one hour’s drive you can visit Mount Etna, the largest active volcano in Europe, the city of Catania with the “Pescheria” (the famous fish market), Teatro Massimo Bellini, Castello Ursino, and numerous other archeological sites and museums. Also not to be missed are Piazza Armerina’s famous Roman mosaics, Villa del Casale in Syracusa, famous for its Greek history, and Militello Val di Catania and Noto, known for their exquisite Baroque architecture and UNESCO World Heritage sites. A bit further and you can enjoy the Greek theatre and good shopping in Taormina, or head south to the Valle dei Templi in Agrigento, yet another World Heritage site.

The main house of the villa has 8 bedrooms (3 double bedrooms and 5 twin bedrooms, which can be made up as doubles on request). Four bedrooms are on the upper garden level and the rest at ground garden level. All have private balconies, or direct access to the gardens. They are equipped with Wi-Fi, heating, air conditioning and colonial ceiling fans. En-suite bathrooms feature traditional Sicilian ceramics and supplied with hand-made scented soaps and the finest toiletries. Also on the upper garden level is the library, an ideal place to relax. A short walk away through the garden is the Orangerie, where there is a cosy living room and dining area, with beautiful stone fireplace, for cooler autumn evenings.
