Preparing the Villa for our guests has been a wonderful experience and we continue to grow and improve with your help. We chose this location, not only for the tranquillity, safety and private beach access, but because for us, the location was like a ‘private gateway’ to all the wonders and attractions Eastern Sicily has to offer. We fell in love with Sicily after a holiday here and wanted to find a way to share our experience. We wanted to encourage friends to visit all the unique historical sights and amazing places, as well as to enjoy the fabulous food, wines and traditional charm, while holidaying in the ease and comfort of a true Villa lifestyle.
