Villa La Dimora, Sicily
Magnificent, historic12 bedroom fully staffed luxury villa with views of Mount Etna
Price on application.
A fabulous Sicilian villa with magnificent gardens, set in 100 private acres. It's a wonderful venue with superb service, ideal for any large gathering. Built as an abbey in 1300, before becoming an important stately home for several centuries and, latterly, being restored as a magnificent holiday hideaway. Its glorious gardens encompass ponds and a peaceful Indian pavilion, lawned paths through scented plants and splendid symmetry, and buildings ablaze with bougainvillea and climbing roses. The 20m swimming pool is set in a pretty garden courtyard, flanked by a pool house with bar, barbecue, shaded terrace and a spa area with hammam and sauna. Within the property, timber raftered ceilings and huge stone arches span timelessly elegant country house décor, where various social spaces complement ten bedrooms, while two special suites are privately placed off the garden courtyard.
