Overview

Explore the heart of Sicily from the comfort of a superb villa with a pool and a view to match. Discover the hidden treasures of the cities of south east Sicily, savour the raw natural beauty that makes up the interior of the island and revel in a silence broken only by birdsong.

Property

Emerging on a hill directly opposite the historical town of Caltagirone, La Loggia is a newly-built villa, inspired by the art nouveau style typical in Caltagirone in the early 1900’s. Its views over the town and the surrounding landscape of rolling hills, woods, vineyards and olive groves, are completely mesmerising. The property stretches to nearly six acres, strewn with centuries-old olive trees, almond trees, aromatic herbs and Mediterranean plants.

Outside: The garden has a lovely pool area, surrounded by decking, with astonishing views over Caltagirone. The spacious terrace, furnished with table and chairs and a barbecue, shares the same view and provides the perfect spot for al fresco meals. There is also a ping pong table that will be loved by kids and adults alike!

Inside: The heart of the villa is a large living-dining room which can be accessed both from the terrace and the main door and gives off a lovely warm feel, partly due to its reliance on warm shades of apricot. In the centre of the room, a stunning copper fireplace, decorated with locally handcrafted ceramics, provides a clever division between the living room and the open-plan kitchen. The kitchen is well-equipped with all standard appliances and enhanced by white lava stone. Nearby, a door leads to a laundry room and a toilet. A separate area on a mezzanine level has a TV and provides a lovely space for relaxing or sitting round and chatting.

From the living-room, a flight of stairs leads to the rest of the house which comprises two double bedrooms, a twin room and bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower.

Local Sights

The rolling countryside that surrounds La Loggia is absolutely beautiful. There are many interesting things to see and do near the villa, but gazing out across the golden hills is sure to be a favourite pastime!

Caltagirone, with its remarkable tradition of ceramics, is very close to the villa and has all the shops and restaurants you could need. The town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the profusion of painted ceramic tiles throughout the town. The highlight of this is the wonderful Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte: a 142-step decorated staircase joining the lower and upper towns.

Piazza Armerina is famous the world over for the extraordinary Villa Romana del Casale. This 4th Century Roman villa is admired for its fantastic mosaics that cover almost every surface. The exceptional quality of these mosaics make this a must for those with an interest in art history and Sicily's Roman past.

Catania is one of Sicily's most bustling cities and is a great place to visit for a spot of urban life. With fantastic shops, impressive architecture, wonderful food and vibrant traditional markets, Catania is a wonderful place to soak up some Sicilian atmosphere. Don't miss La Pescheria, the age-old fish market!

Mount Etna dominates Catania's skyline and is also well worth a visit. There are many ways to see the volcano, depending on how active you want to be. Book a jeep safari, take the cable car or go for a hike. Either way, the sheer magnitude and impressive scale, not to mention the fabulous views from the summit, are unforgettable.


Local Experiences

For a truly local and remarkable experience look to Caltagirone in June. The famous Scalinata di Santa Maria del Monte becomes a canvass of flowers during the Infiorata di Caltagirone.

Discover the hidden gems of the south-east with a guided tour. Ranging from artistic tours in Modica and Noto to a day following in the footsteps of Inspector Montalbano, these guided tours are a wonderful way to get to know this intriguing area of Sicily.

If days spent by the sea are your idea of holiday bliss then you will not be disappointed. Head to Pozzallo and soloSicily can help arrange a day of fun activities such as windsurfing or kitesurfing lessons.

For wine-lovers, Vittoria is one of Sicily's finest wine-growing areas. Cerasuolo di Vittoria is a delicious wine, and many of the fantastic wineries offer tours. Book a vineyard tour and enjoy a day in the vines, learning about how to make wine and enjoying a sample or two.

Extras

The pool is open to guests from 14th April to 27th October.

Road conditions and hire car suggestions: Countryside roads in Sicily are often unpaved and bumpy. For this reason we strongly suggest to rent a car with high ground clearance.
