About property

Skilful refurbishment has perfectly blended minimalist contemporary design with the solid, historic character of this splendid Sicilian villa. Set on the slopes of Sicily’s imposing Mount Etna, the villa looks out beyond a huge, beautiful Mediterranean garden to a rural backdrop and the legendary volcano.

Its setting is an oasis of absolute calm. Gaze out over a landscape carpeted with ordered vineyards, countryside and sinuous olive trees, on a view that flits from the dazzling green of the garden to the sky’s light-infused shades of blue. Shades of gold and brown rise from the sun-scorched earth and a profusion of palm trees and other exotic plants frame the vista. Amazing and private infinity saltwater pool  with view on the countryside.

Villa Sciara has three floors. You will enter the villa on the ground floor, which comprises a spacious family room, with an en-suite bathroom (with shower), and an adjacent small bedroom with single sofa bed. The heart of the villa is on the first floor: a bright, minimalist-style living room and a modern kitchen in which the original oven and wood burner have been preserved. Along the corridor, there is a comfortable double bedroom with en-suite bathroom (with bath and shower), and a twin room (can be adapted to double), as well as another bathroom with shower and toilet. The décor is simple but in keeping with the style of the property, using muted colours which merge seamlessly with the original floor tiles and white walls. The loft space is beautiful, both for its simplicity and style. Here, there is another en-suite double bedroom with bathroom (with shower).

Sciara offers plenty of space to relax and simply enjoy being together. The elegantly furnished terraces look out over a living scented garden and a spectacular landscape.

The villa is located in the Etna National Park, with its rich, fertile soil and vineyards, olive groves, fruit and nut orchards and forests of oak, larch and chestnut trees. For nature lovers, a series of gentle paths that ascend the volcano are just minutes from the villa. Be prepared to be amazed too by other local Sicilian treasures, including Taormina, Catania, Syracuse and the splendid Ionian coast.

☀️ ECO FRIENDLY ☀️Villa Sciara has several aspects that make it an environmentally friendly villa: Thermal energy is produced by solar panels / photovoltaic system. Ecological and locally sourced materials have been used, such as lava stone, a roof made of reeds, chestnut wood, etc., and wherever possible, recycled materials like antique tiles and 19th-century terracotta tiles were used, both in the renovation of the main house and in the construction of the "pool house," as well as in the restoration of the terraced retaining walls. Rainwater is collected for garden irrigation and for the toilets. To further reduce the water footprint, we have exclusively chosen native plants for landscaping the garden, and their maintenance is carried out without the use of pesticides. The DOC Nerello Mascalese vineyard, grown on trellises, and the Nocella Etnea olive grove surrounding the house are cultivated exclusively using organic methods. We can only wish you a pleasant vacation in this eco-friendly property, surrounded by the wonders of Eastern Sicily.
