Villa Baronessa is a majestic period home, set lavishly within its estate surrounded by rural, idyllic Sicily. This charming eighteenth-century manor has been restored with stylish verve and original charm, within unparalleled tranquillity.

The exterior showcases the traditional country home, with original stonework and elegant cloistered veranda, with views across the Sicilian hills and Etna.

This sumptuous home accommodates twelve guests across six bedrooms and six bathrooms. The interiors are impeccably tasteful, offering opulent touches and traditional features within refined and well-proportioned spaces.

The bedrooms are finished with ornate character, sympathetic to the original architecture, along with the best quality fittings. Ochre tones, soft mustards and warm burnt orange provide a home-like glow; furnishings are solid timber, antiques and offset by artefacts and ornate ornaments, oil paintings and a nod to the local history.

From the writer’s nook, resplendent with the leather-clad chair and the antique desk with sublime views, to the ornately wrought iron railings and cloistered roof deck, this home is unapologetically gracious with its baroque flair.

Suave upholstery with beautiful accents of lemon tones and crimson, pale pistachio coloured wooden shutters and beautiful Victorian furniture and vibrant touches such as salmon-toned chaise longue offer this abundant home character.

The farmhouse style kitchen is a delight, offering locally hand-painted tiles and exposed brickwork; whether it be relaxed breakfasts or more formal evening meals on the polished walnut dining table, this home has ample options for colourful, vibrant group meals within a truly original Sicilian manor!

The gardens at Villa Baronessa are sublime: acres of sedate, manicured lawns framed by verdant overgrowth and mysterious woods, tropical palm trees, dappled shaded paths and glistening private pool. Set across a series of layers, this refined home has equally elegant gardens to reflect its natural stylishness.

The pool area is a secluded haven, offering a terrace and luscious lawns as well as shady corners, and boasts a wooden porch complete with barbecue and fridge. Guests may enjoy a refreshing morning swim followed by a continental style breakfast on the patio.

Whether it be a group pool party followed by drinks or a more intimate one-to-one on one of the balcony courtyards, this home provides tasteful outdoor living in stylish tranquillity.

Villa Baronessa is a unique home offering natural and historically preserved interiors, along with every comfort and Baroque style, in a stunningly secluded location just moments from the local amenities and coast.

Villa Baronessa is nestled on Sicily’s east coast, just a kilometre from the sea, between Taormina and Catania, providing breath-taking views over Mount Etna and the Ionian Sea.

Set within the Eastern part of the island, Villa Baronessa is in the foothills of the world famous Mount Etna - the oldest recorded active volcano in the world. Nestled just outside the ancient port city of Catania (which is where the nearest airport is), this home is just moments from the beaches.

Catania is dripping with history and cultural interest; the wide central square, Piazza del Duomo, features the whimsical Fontana dell’Elefante statue and richly decorated Catania Cathedral.

The Palazzo Biscari represents a beautiful example of Catanese baroque architecture and contains a large archaeological collection. History buffs will be impressed by the rococo style interiors, stylish decorations and sophisticated crystal chandeliers.

Whether it be Benedictine monasteries, the vivacious fish market which is one of the most emblematic sites of the city, or the kiosks of Catania, this historical city is brimming with cultural interest, bustling local life and opulent historical buildings.

The thermal baths and spas are at the foot of Etna, while the famous “Kiosks of Catania” are a hub of local life, dating back to the 1800’s; the most famous of which are in Piazza Umberto, a stone’s throw from the Fera 'o Luni, the market of Catania.

Taormina is a stylish and well-heeled town, offering pretty cobbled streets and upscale boutiques, drawing a smart international crowd and some excellent eateries.

Ideal for Babies & Toddlers Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Baronessa offers a wonderful, tranquil and secluded spot for families. The rambling, private grounds offer ample opportunity for children to roam and explore, to play games or spend hours splashing in the pool. This is a rustic environment, away from the bustle of the crowds, ideal for families to reconnect and enjoy long, delicious meals together at the end of a busy day.

Sicily offers great opportunities for family travelers to immerse themselves in the local culture. A trip up Mount Etna itself is an excellent activity for children, and for younger members of the group, a cable car is a wonderful adventure.

Etna Land is a theme park, water park and dinosaur park all rolled into one. It has a suspended cableway, laser shows and rides such as the crocodile rapids.

One of Sicily’s strongest cultural traditions is the puppet theatre, while Sicily is also known for its castles - there are hundreds of them all over the island.

Children will be welcome all over Sicily, in the piazzas at night or in restaurants - the culture is oriented around the family and attractions are geared up to the needs of children.
