General

A fabulous neoclassical villa with extensive grounds and swimming pool belonging to one of the leading aristocratic families in Sicily. The villa is located on the edge of the historic little town of Monreale,  famous for its Arab-Norman cathedral, and is without doubt one of the most evocative historic houses in Sicily, thanks not only to its original architecture, but to the love and care lavished on both villa and gardens by its owners.

Surrounded by an enormous, nationally recognised park, a typical example of  romantic garden so popular in the late 18th century when the villa was built, with lush tropical vegetation, a lake on which a pair of swans called Tristan and Isotta live, and a miniature neoclassical temple. The second lake has been transformed into a swimming pool.

The piano nobile, accessed either via a huge billiards room, or via an imposing staircase, consists of a gran salone, or main reception room, followed by a series of interconnecting parlours or salotti. Rooms are magnificent, frescoed, with floors of maiolica, and furnished with period pieces. The result is not only visually appealing and suffused with historic atmosphere, but very comfortable!
The villa is ideal for a really special holiday for anyone who wants to experience life in a magnificent historic villa at first hand, with all modern comforts!
