Villa Palmento is a beautiful luxury home in the countryside of southeastern Sicily, situated on a private, twenty-four-acre estate near Caltagrione. Originally a winery, the vintage home has been beautifully restored and renovated into a contemporary vacation destination, featuring a heated saltwater swimming pool, two kitchens, superb living and dining areas, modern media features, and air conditioning. Four lovely bedroom suites (two in the main house, two in a guest house with its own kitchen) accommodate families and groups of friends up to eight in size.
The expansive estate features ample lawns, fruit orchards, age-old olive trees, and gardens brimming with fragrant herbs and flowers. Explore the grounds on foot or bicycle before dipping into the refreshing pool. Bask in the Mediterranean sunlight on lounge chairs overlooking the hills, and sip cool drinks under the rustic canopy. Kindle the traditional grill and fill the air with the aromas of local delicacies, and gather for alfresco feasts in the mellowing afternoon. Lovely outdoor lighting (including floodlights in the pool) invite you to linger for hours under the stars.
The main living room features comfortable modern sofas under high ceilings, with a Bose sound system and satellite TV. The adjoining dining room includes a farmhouse-style table, wood-beamed ceilings, and wide doors to the veranda. The kitchen also opens to the veranda and features chef-grade appliances for the contemporary cook. A separate den offers a haven for private downtime.
In the main house, the master bedroom features a king bed, private balcony, TV, and deluxe ensuite bathroom with dual vanity, shower, and soaking tub. The guest suite has a king bed and single-size bed, an ensuite bathroom with shower, and doors to a terrace. Both king beds features gorgeous headboards, one of which is made of an antique wine cask. The separate guesthouse has two queen suites with ensuite bathrooms.
Beyond this serene rural sanctuary, you're just twelve kilometers from the town of Caltagirone, home of the extraordinary Staircase of Santa María del Monte, among other historic splendors. Nescemi is just sixteen kilometers, and you're about forty kilometers from the coastal beaches at Gela. Catania and Mount Etna make for lovely daytrips.
