Authentic country luxury for the exclusively recluse
The delightful summer country home is a most luxurious villa on the increasingly fashionable southern coastline between Mazara del Vallo and Agrigento, which has become an exclusive and much sought-after destination for “total escape”. This region offers some of the best beaches in Sicily, where the crystalline waters are among the cleanest beaches in the whole Mediterranean. The luxury villa is a ten-minute car ride to the ancient town and wine centre of Menfi (70 km southwest of Palermo) and 10 minutes by car on a local road to Porto Palo beach. This noteworthy villa is found at the end of an impressively long driveway from the main gate, which dissects the front of the extensive 18,000 sq. m private and walled grounds. As such, its placement assures total privacy and seclusion in which to enjoy the unique views of sublime and serene southern Sicilian landscape from this classic country house that has been thoughtfully refurbished and reimagined as a luxurious family residence. Its well-appointed and open plan living spaces have polished wood floors and ceiling-high glazing on French doors, which open to the garden and are draped with gossamer-like white curtains constantly teased by the breeze. The renovation by the owners from Palermo comes into its own in the sizeable contemporary kitchen, which is fully glazed on two sides and has copious space enough to swallow up a long breakfast table, from where you can gaze out on to garden towards the massive swimming pool. The poolside is another highlight of the tasteful refurbishment, offering a wide wood and L-shaped deck on which to lounge in the sunshine and to lapp up the sight of evocative Mediterranean landscape, which stretching out beyond on all sides.
This appealing luxury villa is on 2 levels and will accommodate a family or group of friends of up to a total of 10. There are 5 commodious bedrooms en suite (3 double and 2 twin), while the exterior living arrangements are extravagant. Aside from the pool deck, guests can submerge themselves into some seriously extreme relaxation on the wide pergola-shaded living-dining terrace. This is the place for yearned-for summer days where silence is broken only by sounds of nature and for dreamt-of starlit summer evenings following one from a day of changing light moods created by the sun. If you can be pulled away from the nirvana of the villa’s outdoor lounge, you can set out on delightful local excursions to the atmospheric fishing village of Sciacca, the coastal hill village of Caltabellotta to feast on the panoramic view from coast to inland, or combine a cultural tour of the beautiful archeological sites at Segesta and Agrigento after a day at a nearby beach.
This luxurious villa is just right for all discernible holidaymakers who seek a quintessential Sicilian summer experience, along with uninterrupted privacy and views. It is a perfect match for a family (even one with small kids, but beware the pool is not alarmed) and also for friends holidaying in a group and who desire the ultimate base from which to explore the best of Sicily.
