The elegant décor of all rooms is attained by using heirloom antique furniture combined with cheerful fabrics and high-end upholstery, achieving a very well balanced timeless style. The original tiled floors and the vaulted ceilings were left intact to preserve the historic home’s original architectural details. The villa is equipped for large groups and its chef offers a delightful typical Sicilian cuisine.
The gates of the villa open to a fantastic exotic park. The outdoor space is completely manicured offering plenty of areas for dining, lounging and sunbathing.
