A chance to experience authentic Sicilian rural life with all the mod cons! Mariuccia is located in a small agricultural town in the Sicani hills, within easy reach of the beaches on the south coast and several of the island’s top cultural attractions. With a large pool, billiard room, table tennis and plenty of outdoor space, it is one of our top villas for groups of friends and extended families.


Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in the simplicity of rural life in a beautiful villa, surrounded by woodland, on a three acre estate in Burgio in southern Sicily. Recently restored to a very high quality, the villa has a wonderfully secluded pool area and a very striking covered patio for ‘al fresco’ dining.

Outside: The villa has a huge garden, bordered by Mediterranean plants, oak and olive trees, with a large pool that provides the perfect spot for sunbathing and a cooling dip. A spacious patio wraps round the villa, cleverly designed to provide separate areas including an ‘al fresco’ dining area with huge shady umbrellas; a table-tennis table; and close by, a barbecue and wood-burning oven.

Inside: Enter the villa from the front patio, straight into the living-room which is decorated in warm, yellow hues and has an open fire-place and dining area. A fully-fitted kitchen to the left of the living-room opens out directly on to the back patio to the barbecue and wood-burning oven. The master bedroom, with en suite bathroom, one double bedroom, a twin bedroom (which can be converted into a double) and a large bathroom with shower, are all on the ground floor.

Up on the first floor, there are two more double bedrooms, a bathroom with shower and a billiard room which leads out to a large terrace with wonderful views of the valley and village below.


Local Sights

Mariuccia's secluded rural location does not mean that it lacks for wonderful local sights.

Burgio is the villa's nearest town. With a great artistic heritage - including the tradition of bell making - and some lovely restaurants and shops, this is a great base for your holiday in Sicily.

Sciacca is only a 20 minute drive from the villa, and is a charming town with a great beach. The town has a strong fishing fleet and you can always be sure that the fish in the town's many excellent restaurants is as fresh as can be!

The Torre Salsa Nature Reserve is under an hour's drive away and this area's beauty certainly justifies the journey. The reserve is run by the WWF and has lovely untamed beaches, a variety of interesting wildlife and beautiful natural scenery.

The Valley of the Temples near Agrigento is a firm favourite with scholars, lovers of history and tourists. As one of the most important archaeological sites in Sicily, a trip to the Valley of the Temples makes Sicily's ancient past come alive.

Local Experiences

A day at the beach is a must! Hope in the car and in 20 minutes you will be at the lovely beach of San Giorgio. A little further afield (35 minutes) is Borgo Bonsignore in the Fiume Platani Nature Reserve. In 45 minutes you could be in Eraclea Minoa, with its fantastic golden sands fringed with a pine forest. Rent umbrellas and sunloungers at Lido Garibaldi and enjoy some fresh pasta at the beach restaurant.

One of Sicily's top golf courses is found not too far from Mariuccia. The Roccoforte Verdura Golf Resort and Spa is home to an 18-hole course that has a spectacular background of the Mediterranean Sea.

Burgio really comes into its own on Easter Sunday. You will find colourful religious processions and lots of traditional and delicious food on offer throughout the town on this day.

When staying at Mariuccia you are not far from one of Sicily's top wine-growing areas. A winery visit or tour is a great way to spend the day, and will leave you with a taste for Sicily's superb wines!

If food is your passion then Mariuccia is the perfect place to indulge: Book a Cook for an evening of Sicilian food prepared for you by a local chef. You will enjoy a delicious meal cooked especially for you and your guests.

For those of you who love to cook then you can easily learn the Sicilian tricks of the trade with an in-villa pasta making class cookery class, or a lesson at a local cookery school. Your friends will be desperate to come to dinner at your house once you have mastered Sicilian cuisine!


The pool is open to guests from June 13th to September 25th.

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.

Visit Mariuccia out-of-season at Easter when the streets of Burgio come alive with colourful processions accompanied by traditional local food. Watch a video of the Easter Monday procession in Burgio here. In February, Carnival fever takes over in nearby Sciacca, home to one of Sicily’s most popular carnivals and well worth a visit for its huge Mardi Gras parade.

Golf fans can take advantage of the proximity of Rocco Forte Golf Resort with its 18-hole course.
