Overview

Il Borgo del Barone is an impressive villa with both a traditional style and contemporary flair. Recently restored with exceptional attention to detail and a unique style using upcycled furniture, this villa has space for up to 12 guests with a pool area set away from the villa. Each room has its own incredible design and lends itself perfectly to a stylish holiday in Sicily.

Property

Outside: The outside space at Il Borgo del Barone is evocative of another era. The villa is a traditional stone Baglio, complete with a charming courtyard where you can enjoy al fresco meals. This characteristic space also has a barbecue. The villa is surrounded by paths and staircases - it feels like a miniature town! The pool area is set below the villa, surrounded by beautiful Sicilian countryside. There are sunloungers, a changing room and a bathroom, as well as an outdoor shower. There's also a pleasant gazebo for moments you want the shade.

Inside: Walk up the cobbled stone staircase into the courtyard from which your can enter straight into a stunning entrance hall. With minimal furnishing, gorgeous stone walls and an ancient olive press, this room makes a real statement. From here sliding metal doors take you to the sitting room with sofas, and a smart TV. An office is found just off this sitting room where you can read or work if needs be. A bedroom with a double bed and ensuite shower is accessed via this office. From the main entrance hall a corridor takes you to the kitchen - with a sleek, modern design - with a large window and balcony. From here you can reach the minimalist dining room with a stunning glass table and access to a balcony with countryside views.

There is a secondary kitchen on the ground floor with a sofa too. This is ideal for making snacks and hot drinks.

Go up to the first floor from the main entrance hall. There is a mezzanine-like hallway under the eaves furnished with sofas that looks down over the entrance. There are four bedrooms in this area - all with unique style and extraordinary design. One has a double bed, one has incredible foot-to-foot twin beds, and the third has a beautiful round bed. All are decorated with care and upcycled style, and all have their own bathrooms with shower.

Walk along the corridor above the entrance hall and you'll reach another beautiful bedroom with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. A sixth bedroom is accessed from a secondary staircase near the second kitchen. This bedroom also has a double bed and a lovely ensuite bathroom.

Local Sights

Santo Stefano di Camastra is a charming seaside town with a good selection of bars, restaurants and shops for your essentials. It is famous for its production of colourful ceramics: shops selling these cheerful, artisinal products line the streets and make great souvenirs.

Cefalù is one of Sicily's most popular towns for a day by the beach and it is clear to see why. This medieval town has a gorgeous and characteristic centre with winding streets, restaurants and shops. The cathedral is incredible and the sandy beach is gorgeous. Cefalù is perfect for a day trip!

The Nedbrodi Mountain Range is close to the villa. This unspoilt nature reserve has a wealth of pretty hilltop villas, as well as extraordinary flora, faun and views. It's great for a drive though stunning scenery or a hike through one of the many trails.

There are also many lovely beaches in the area. Finale di Pollina is charming, as is the nearby beach at Castel di Tusa.


Local Experiences

There are many things to do in this area, ensuring that your holiday is as fun and memorable as it can be. A boat trip along the coast, or even to the Aeolian Islands is a must. It's easy to visit this beautiful archipelago found off the north coast of Sicily. Enjoy gorgeous views, clear water and charming locals.

Art lovers won't be disappointed in the area. The Fiumara d'Arte sculpture park is close by and is an intriguing and beautiful place to visit with large-scale contemporary sculpture set in the lovely Sicilian countryside.

Take a trip slightly further afield and visit Palermo. This vibrant city has an unforgettable character, and some amazing food. A Street Food tour is a great way to discover the city in all its beauty and enjoy some of its legendary food. Come with an empty stomach and a sense of adventure.

Extras

In 2019 the pool is open to guests from April 13th to October 26th.

In 2020 the pool is open to guests from April 11st to October 24th.

Il Borgo del Barone is easily accessible due to its proximity to a county road. The road can be both seen and heard from some outdoor areas close to the villa's main entrance. However, this does not affect the indoor spaces and pool area in any way.

Il Borgo del Barone is not suitable for those with mobility issues.
