Accommodations

Ground Floor

The villa has been carefully restored using local stones and materials to retain the original character of the place, blending it with the dramatic surrounding scenery. The bright and nice decorated interiors do not come short in comfort and its simple style makes you always feel at ease. The sitting room, complete with large sofas and flat screen TV, overlooks the plateau and the sea in the distance. The spacious dining room, adjacent to the fully equipped modern kitchen, can host sitting dinners for up to 16 guests. Little touches of luxury, such as en-suite bathrooms with glass door showers, an outdoor hot tub at disposal to enjoy while admiring the canyon below, and the privacy and uniqueness of the location, will remind you that you are on holiday.

Outside Features

The villa features manicured grounds with typical Mediterranean vegetation. Several terraces are equipped for your comfort and a dining table is set under a pergola so you can enjoy nourishing meals and interesting conversation in the shade. A furnished sun deck next to the panoramic swimming pool is the ideal spot to cool off the heat of the Sicilian summer. Do not forget to experience the hot tub (up to three people) placed on a rocky plateau inside the estate, few feet from the impressive cliff.
