Overview

An extraordinary countryside estate with exceptional facilities including a pool and a separate spa area, in a truly peaceful location. With so much space, as well as a mix of traditional and contemporary style, Casale degli Erei is ideal for a get-away-from-it-all break in Sicily.

Property

Outside:

Surrounded by verdant Sicilian countryside with vines, fichi d'India and woodland, Casale degli Erei is set around a beautiful stone courtyard. This traditional and charming area is the centre of the property.

From the courtyard your can enter the incredible spa. This is the ideal place for complete relaxation: chill out in the jacuzzi, or spend time in the Turkish bath or sauna. There's also a shower room. The spa has picture windows looking our over the pool area. Next to the spa is a small, private chapel, offering a peaceful place for reflection or a great location for an intimate wedding service. A beautiful roof terrace is a great choice for a spot of breakfast or an evening aperitivo.

The beautiful pool is set slightly apart from the main house, up a few stone steps. Surrounded by sunloungers, this is an idyllic spot to unwind. There's also a small hydromassage pool above the main pool for an extra touch of relaxation.

The outdoor dining area is set between the pool area and the main house. A large covered dining table is the perfect place for al fresco meals, whilst the barbecue area and outdoor kitchen – with a traditional sink and even a wood-burning oven – provides a wonderful environment for outdoor cooking. Next to the dining area is a fully equipped laundry room.

The property also has several charming patio areas with sofas and seating areas. Sit back, chill out and take in the countryside views.


Inside:

Main House
Walk through the main door into the formal entrance hall with stairs up to the first floor. To the left is access to two sitting rooms – a formal reception room with traditional furniture and a smaller TV room with an open fireplace. To the right of the entrance hall you enter the dining room which leads to the kitchen. The kitchen itself has all that you could need and is decorated in a traditional Sicilian style. The kitchen also leads out to the barbecue area and outdoor dining area. A guest bathroom is under the staircase.

Walk up the stairs to the first floor. At the top of the stairs is a sitting room, with an open fireplace. From here three bedrooms are accessible: two double ensuite bedrooms and one single bedroom with its own ensuite bathroom. Two other double ensuite bedrooms are found on wither side of the staircase. One with a shower and the other with a bath.

Guest House
Three modern double bedrooms are accessed from the courtyard. Each bedroom has their own ensuite bathroom with a shower. All bedrooms also have a mini fridge. A fourth double bedroom with its own entrance from the courtyard is also found in the Guest House – this fourth bedroom has its own seating area, kitchenette and ensuite bathroom with shower.

Area

Local Sights

San Michele di Ganzaria is the nearest town to the villa. This small, traditional Sicilian town has all of the basics that you could need including shops and bars.

For a larger town, visit Piazza Armerina. This is an atmospheric town is home to several beautiful churches. The Chiesa Madre, set in a lovely piazza, is beautiful and imposing. The belvedere offers fantastic countryside views. You'll find many shops, bars and restaurants here too.

The Villa Romana del Casale is the most famous archaeological site in the area. These extraordinary ruins of an ancient Roman villa house some of the best examples of mosaics in Europe. Any lover of history should not miss the Villa Romana del Casale, with the beautiful, decorative and detailed mosaics covering huge swathes of the villa's flooring.

Caltagirone is a lovely town to visit due to its extraordinary ceramics. This colourful town has ceramics everywhere - and they make a great memento for your time in Sicily! The highlight is the marvellous Scala di Santa Maria del Monte. This staircase (with 142 steps) is wonderfully decorated with beautiful tiles.

The closest beach is around 35 minutes from the villa. Book sunloungers and an umbrella at B Cool Beach club for a relaxing day under the sun. Or head towards La Playa beach in Catania. There are many lidos where you can rent sun umbrellas along the long, sandy bay.

 

Local Experiences

For a truly Sicilian experience, book an in-villa cook service. A talented local cook will come to the villa and prepare a fantastic meal using local products and traditional recipes for you and your guests. All you need to do is relax and enjoy!

If you prefer to get involved in the cooking, then you could also book an in-villa cookery class. Learn the tricks of the trade including authentic recipes and helpful hints. This is a great way to discover more about Sicily's rich gastronomic history, as well as adding some great dishes to your repertoire.

Try a unique experience whilst staying at Casale degli Erei: wine therapy! The villa has its very own wine therapy area, where you cane bathe in local wine! The antioxidants in the wine are greatly beneficial to the skin and this relaxing experience is also great fun!

Discover the local area on horseback! You can ride through the local countryside by booking a horse riding experience. This is a great way to see the surrounding area and is a must for those with a love of nature and sport.
