Villa Lily is an absolutely charming traditional eco friendly villa in Sicily. Boasting four air conditioned bedrooms and bathrooms, a large living area as well as a dining room and kitchen, there is plenty of space to relax in the company of family and friends both inside and out in the wonderful gardens and around the pool.
Inside there is a spacious living area furnished with elegant period pieces and comfortable furnishings. A fireplace provides a real focal point to the area. Traditional Sicilian pottery adds additional character and charm. Large windows let in plenty of light and provide views over the garden. Adjacent to the living area is the dining room, furnished with a stylish wooden table and chairs. There is a second fireplace in this room along with a traditional sideboard, more comfortable armchair seating and a TV. Doors lead directly from the dining room into the kitchen. This is traditional in style with majolica wall tiles but has all the modern appliances you could need. The same elegant and traditional style continues in all four of the air-conditioned bedrooms. The first of these is the master bedroom which has a luxurious en suite bathroom with marble flooring, bath tub and separate shower. The second bedroom also has a double bed. The bed is stunning, with a wooden headboard, carefully carved and painted according to the traditional Sicilian style of the late 19th century. Again, it also has an en suite bathroom, this time with beautiful majolica floor tiles. The remaining two bedrooms are on the lower floor of the property. Both these rooms also have en suite shower rooms. The villa is set in 9000 square metres of gardens. The house is surrounded with covered porch areas furnished with stylish outdoor seating. One faces the gardens, a peaceful spot to enjoy the quiet atmosphere that surrounds the property and the other overlooks the swimming pool. The salt water swimming pool measures 12 metres by 8 metres and has two sets of semi circular staircases that lead down into the water. It features two small semi-circular marble staircases that lead directly into the water. The garden also boasts a beautiful vine-covered arbour. As an added bonus, the villa is 100% eco-friendly. The property has its own photovoltaic system powering a modern heating system below the floor providing all the electricity supply that the property requires. There is also a water purifier in the kitchen, ensuring that guests don't need to buy bottled water and rainwater is collected which is then used to water the garden. Please note that energy consumption up to 300 kWh per week is included. Any additional usage is charged at 0.40 euros per extra kWh. Please note that the lovely property owner lives within the grounds of the villa and will be pleased to answer any of your enquiries during your stay. He also speaks perfect English. Rest assured, he will ensure you enjoy absolute privacy during your stay.
The nearest beaches are 10-15 km away. The beaches in this area are great for families with shallow sea waters perfect for little legs. The famous Sicilian salt pans are just a short distance away where you will probably be lucky enough to find flocks of flamingoes.
