This elegant mansion dates back to the 17th century and retains an endearing homely feel. It lies within extensive grounds in spectacular scenic countryside between Catania and Siracusa. Its pool, wellness centre and spacious common rooms make this a perfect base for a special occasion to share with friends and family.

L’Agrumeto is a beautiful mansion in the south east of Sicily, close to Syracuse and Noto and Europe’s largest active volcano, Mount Etna. A 10-min drive takes you into the nearest village. Brucoli, a simple and friendly fishing village with the bare essentials such as a few bars, a bakery, a pharmacy, a newsagent and a church. Oh! and lots of fresh fish – sold by the fishermen directly off their boats or on the streets, in the fishmongers and in the few, but very good, restaurants.

Entering the villa’s gate is like entering a small village complete with cobbled alleys and its own little church. This authentic Sicilian twelve-bedroom original 17th century feudal estate invites you to take a step back into ancient Sicily while surrounded by all modern comforts. Set in 110 hectares of private grounds and gardens where you can jog, walk or drift serenly along, imbibing fresh air and aromas exuded by this fertile land.

This mansion has 12 comfortable bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and beautiful common rooms. In rich Sicilian colours, these are elegant rooms with sweeping ceilings and are furnished with immense charm. Sit and absorb the sense of peace in front of the roaring living room fire, or take in the smells of wild herbs by its oudoor swimming pool.The dining room is grand, looking out onto its carefully groomed gardens. The estate also houses a tiny church, a Turkish Hammam and Finnish sauna.
