PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only). Villa Terra del sole is a beautifully renovated 19th Century Farmhouse sympathetically restored preserving the original building's features such as the stonework and exposed beams. The area reserved for its guests is what was once the stables in the traditional U-shaped allowing for a central courtyard with a covered terrace along the front of the house where to eat and relax. Its interiors are welcoming in traditional Italian style. Outdoor, meandering walkways and stone steps trough the grass planted with pines and olive trees offer a selection of secluded shaded areas where to relax. The magnificent infinity pool will no doubt be at the centre of your holiday treating its guests to a panoramic sea view. A lounge area as well as sun-beds allows for taking in the views in full comfort. 20 acres of land, at your disposal for walking and jogging, is dedicated to olive cultivation. The Estate is well known for producing exceptional Extra Virgin Olive Oil, which is distributed in Italy and across Europe. Guests staying during September and early October are welcome to join the olive harvest, following the fascinating process from tree to bottle. The farm is situated in Piana di Licata with its authentic small towns, it is an area rich in places of interest to visit such as the greek Temples of Agrigento, The Kolymbetra Gardens, the Cathedral of Salt in Realmonte and the interesting and avant-garde cultural Farm of Favara. If you're looking for beaches, this area counts some of Sicily's most beautiful bays and beaches.
The owner’s residence is adjacent to the property, 40 meters from the original stables. Signora Giulia can give invaluable support and local advice to ensure your stay is even more enjoyable.
The Emma Villas' Concierge Team can be reached for any emergencies, or further information you may require during your stay. All useful telephone numbers will be sent together with your booking documents.
From the gate a tree flanked road leads to the property. You are welcomed by the courtyard surrounded by the three sides of the property. A pergola runs along the three sides offering shade to the shared living areas with sofas and armchairs and on the side of the kitchen a large outdoor dining table. The entrance opens onto the living room furnished with a comfortable sofa, armchairs, a dining table for 6 to 10 persons. On the left, the separate kitchen in Sicilian style includes a dining table for 8. From the kitchen a second door leads outside to the large dining table.
