Looking for a house that’s as gorgeous inside as out? A master bedroom with sunken bath and a galleried living room with double-height ceiling are just two of the interior design features at Villa Idda which caught the eye of House Beautiful magazine. Packed with the latest home inspiration and interior design ideas, House Beautiful is also a great source for travel ideas.
The magazine’s feature on 5 European holiday villas with gorgeous interiors kicks off with Villa Idda, a 4-bedroom villa overlooking a beautifully landscaped garden with pool. The villa is divided into two buildings, one with a striking galleried lounge. Connected via an atmospheric outdoor dining terrace, the smaller building has a large open plan living room and a stunning master bedroom with sunken bath. Outside, terraces and verandas are scattered with recliners, bench seating and dining furniture.
Villa Idda is situated on Sicily’s east coast, just a short hop from Catania and within easy reach of Acireale, Taormina and Mount Etna. The villa (sleeps 7) has good availability in September and October when temperatures are still in their low 20’s and autumnal food festivals such as the Sagra del Pistacchio take place in the villages on the slopes of Mount Etna.
