Villa Olmo This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Castel di Lucio

Description

NEW ENTRY Perfect for anyone looking for a more authentic holiday experience in Sicily, Villa Olmo is ideally situated between the Madonie and Nebrodi mountains and is just at 20 min. drive to the coast. With striking views over the hills from the mature garden and secluded pool, the 6-bedroom villa is a wonderful rural retreat for two families or a group of friends.

The traditional stone villa overlooks a spacious garden with large lawns, flower beds and a gorgeous pool. A covered terrace provides welcome shade for al fresco dining and a gazebo in the heart of the garden provides an alternative dining area, complete with a built-in brick barbecue, woodburning pizza oven and sink. A separate annex to the villa houses the washing machine. There are also bikes for exploring locally and a ping pong table.

The villa is set on two floors, with three bedrooms on each. Antique furniture and painted headboards adorn the atmospheric bedrooms and contemporary fixtures sit alongside original tiling and stone arched recesses in the bathrooms.

On the ground floor, large floor-to-ceiling glass doors lead from the patio to the living room, and from there to the kitchen and then the dining room. There are three double bedrooms on this floor, each with a bathroom (with shower) and direct access to the garden.

The first floor is accessible via a small stone staircase at the front of the villa (from the garden). Here there are another three double bedrooms, including one en suite, and a second bathroom with shower for the remaining two bedrooms.

The area

The villa is situated just a short drive from Castel di Lucio, a tiny medieval village which became an important stronghold in its day thanks to its strategic location. The village still boasts a 14th century castle and several churches and during the summer months, hosts two traditional food festivals – the Sagra ‘a tabsica ca ricotta’ (May) and the Sagra du Cascavaddu (August), both celebrating local cheese production.

Art enthusiasts will love the outdoor contemporary sculpture, the Labirinto di Arianna, situated just 5 minutes by car from Villa Olmo. The striking art work was created by Italo Lanfredini and forms part of the magnificent Fiumara d’Arte open air art collection which stretches from Tusa to Santo Stefano di Camastra and is now considered one of the largest contemporary sculpture parks in Europe.

Despite the villa’s rural location, the beaches on Sicily’s north coast are just 30 minutes away by car. Top spot is the picturesque beach overlooked by an ancient castle at the small coastal resort of Castel di Tusa. The livelier resort of Cefalù is around an hour by car.

Away from the beaches, there are ample opportunities for hiking and exploring the charming villages and stunning landscapes of the Nebrodi and Madonie mountains. The Madonie village of Gangi, winner of the ‘most beautiful village in Italy’ title, is around 40 minutes by car.
