Villa Palmento

Caltagirone, Sicily, Italy
In the Sicily of UNESCO Baroque Villages, A Luigi Longhitano Villa

On a hilltop with panoramic views stands a 24-acre piece of private paradise with a geometrically-playful stone villa. Formerly the land of a winery, the grounds are now covered in over 100 plant species. A place to wander from olive to fruit trees, breathe in the lavender and rosemary, and admire the composition of agaves, yuccas, prickly pears eucalyptus and pines, it’s a true gem of the Sicilian countryside.

Strong bones, Feng Shui principles and dramatic proportions define the interior spaces, earning it a 2018 feature in Home Design Magazine. Some wonderful echoes of the past remain, like beds made of the original barrels from the winery.



Relax on the lawn with the pool waterfall at your sun-kissed back, grill some artichokes and aubergines on the outdoor wood and charcoal barbecue, and commune with friends and a glass of Chianti under the bougainvillea-covered pergola. There are myriad paths within the property for walking, jogging and mountain bike riding.

And you can feel even lighter knowing that this is an environmentally-minded property, sourcing its water from a well, using and conserving natural energy, and employing an organic waste and recycling program.

Ideally situated for discovering the historical treasures of the UNESCO protected baroque towns in South-East Sicily, Villa Palmetto is the ideal place for families, sun-seekers and nature lovers, sleeping up to nine people with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Its double height sitting room is the heart of the home.

The kitchen is composed of two connected rooms, and is equipped with a large, American-style fridge with fresh and filtered water and ice, a combi-steam oven, large microwave oven and a warming drawer. There is also a large induction hob with hood, and every kitchen utensil you could possibly need, including professional knives, scales, and a food processor, hand blender, raclette and toaster. Mornings are a coffee conossieur’s dream, with a La Pavoni lever coffee machine, coffee grinder, Nespresso coffee machine and Aeroccino milk frother.

The en suite master bedroom has a super king-size bed with a walk-in wardrobe, a full-length balcony overlooking the valley, and a full HD smart TV. The bathroom has an extra-large bathtub, separate large walk-in shower and double basins.

The Cask Room is the second bedroom, and has a super king-size double bed and a day bed that could sleep an extra guest. This room has a private terrace with a table and chairs that overlook the valley. The ensuite bathroom has a shower and even a heated towel rail.

"Salotto del Vino”, the fourth bedroom, was the heart of the old winery and the tanks where the winemakers crushed the grapes with their feet are still visible under the wood and glass floor. This room has a sofa bed, antique desk, terrace, and full HD smart TV with a Blue-Ray player. It has an en suite bathroom with a shower, WC and bidet, and a heated towel rail.

A separate annex is the guest house, just located a short walk from the villa. Private and composed of a modern design, it is considered a third bedroom and is connected by intercom to the main house. This room has a king size double bed, open wardrobe, a 270 sq ft terrace with a sitting and sunbathing area, a full HD TV and a silent minibar. The en suite bathroom has a large walk-in shower and heated towel rail. 

All bathrooms contain basins, a WC and bidet, and have separate showers.

If you’re on a workstation, you’ll be pleased to know that technology was a big consideration throughout, with USB phone/tablet chargers and a color laser printer. Other tech amenities are digital aerial channels, digital satellite channels, Netflix, and a Bose music player.

A delicious variety of locally-produced delicacies and pastries will be provided for breakfast on the first day. Daily maid service on request, daily cleaning and sanitation check of the villa (except Sunday), Free Wifi, sheets and towels are changed regularly.

Additional services (for an additional fee): Private chef, laundry and ironing, shopping, babysitting, itinerary planning

Safety note: The enclosed grounds are wonderful for older children to be left safely to explore on bike or foot, but due to its hillside construction, the home has several staircases and terraces, making it unsuitable for people with reduced mobility. Young children should not be left unattended by the pool.
 
RUINS, PALAZZOS AND BEACHES
