Wind your way up the sparsely populated hill, past scrub, cork oaks and oleander, to a large modern villa with a breathtaking view. Bask on chic loungers, float in the pool, gaze on the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The architect owners, a Polish couple who love Sicily, have built the house of their dreams. Local wood and stone dominate their design, an African theme informs the décor, and windows open to terraces on three levels, with sea views for everyone. The garden glistens with olive, apricot and almond trees. Cook outside, shaded from the sun. Bedrooms, three in the house and another in the annexe, are plush and pleasingly secluded.
Friendly Massimo, who comes from Cefalù, offers you aperitivos on arrival, and helps you plan the best for your stay. Boat trips, wineries, massages, yoga, cookery classes in your kitchen…he happily arranges it all.
