A magical aristocratic villa set within an exotic award-winning garden
Enjoy glorious sunshine and luxurious style of Sicily in this exquisite historic villa, located 45 minutes south of Catania. The villa is located on the vast estate of one of Sicily's oldest noble families near the village of Villasmundo, named after one of the ancestors of the current owner. The property has been in the hands of the same Sicilian noble family since the 12th century.
Driving through the gates of San Giuliano and capturing sight of the beautiful house through the exotic palm trees is only the first taste of the magic to come. This is truly one of the finest historic villas in Sicily and needs to be seen to be believed. The prestige is reflected in every aspect of the property, from its elegant decor to its exceptional staff and from its private chapel to its sublime gardens with a huge pool and tennis court.
Its elegant and grand interiors will transport you back in time while modern luxury will keep you comfortably in the present. A large enclosed courtyard with a fabulous fig tree in the centre leads to the main part of the villa and other buildings.
As you enter the main villa you will be surrounded by graceful furnishings, antiques, family paintings and period features such as vaulted ceilings and Sicilian tiled floors. Gather your guests in the double drawing room with large open fireplace and taste the divine Sicilian specialties of your private chef in the beautiful dining room with enchanted tiled panels and numerous gilded mirrors.
Five of the villa's spacious bedrooms are located on the upper floor, all beautifully appointed with stylish furnishings and modern comforts. The recently refurbished bathrooms have elegant bath tubs and separate walk in showers. The four additional bedrooms are situated across the central courtyard and have lovely en suite bathrooms.
The sunshine will certainly beckon you outside and the spectacular gardens offer plenty of opportunities for enjoying Sicily’s incredible weather. Awarded a prize by the foundation Grandi Giardini Italiani in 2013, and open for private visits from time to time, the estate’s Andalusian-Arabesque garden features manicured lawns, vibrant flowers, palm trees, fragrant citrus trees, serene pools of water and gurgling fountains. The relaxing pool area is shaded by swaying palms, perfect for lying beneath the deep blue Sicilian sky with a glass of chilled white wine, and you can take in a few rounds of tennis on the gardens fenced court to the backdrop of Mount Etna.
The property is part of a larger farm of 55 hectares of land, cultivated whit citrus groves, vineyards, olive groves, and other kinds of cultivation. It is an oasis of tranquillity, beauty and exceptional hospitality. San Giuliano prides itself on its highly professional and friendly staff. They are here to take care of your every need and desire at the villa.
