This old farmhouse has been divided into two properties that offer lots of privacy, but make for a fabulous holiday house if taken together. It’s set on an estate with over 20 acres of olive trees, some of them over 150 years old, and there are dreamy views of the Mediterranean from the infinity pool.
Welcoming Giulia and her husband live next door. Her family has been producing extra virgin olive oil here for generations, and you’re welcome to help with the harvesting and hand-pressing if you visit in the autumn, and join them for wine tastings from local producers in the farmhouse cellar.
The relaxed living areas open out onto shaded terraces where you can relax and eat together, and there’s a play area in a pine forest for the kids. Drive to nearby Licata for the two Michelin-starred La Madia, one of the best restaurants in Sicily; you’re also a short drive from the beach and important archaeological sites.
