Sicily Villas ideal for rural retreats

There are a few very good reasons Sicily is popular amongst holiday-makers looking for an escape from the realities of every-day life - the crumbling archaeological parks transport you back in time whilst floating in the shimmering seas helps all your troubles drift away. However, there is a particularly peaceful side to Sicily that can only be found in the beautiful countryside of the island. A colourful patchwork of verdant hills and fertile farmland with the breath-taking silhouettes of craggy mountains standing sentinel over the land, Sicily offers a wonderful rural landscape that encompasses all the best of Italy – both inland and along its coastal stretches. Choose from luxurious rural villas in Sicily, cosy mountain retreats, or properties nestled in the heart of the countryside where deliciously fresh local produce and tempting vineyards are right on your doorstep. A self-catered stay in the secluded spots of rural Sicily will allow you to experience the traditional ways of country life with all the comforts of a home-away-from-home.

Browse our collections for information on specific properties – each consists of unique features and amenities – or contact us for more details.

Historical retreats

The island of Sicily boasts a long and fascinating history, reflected in the diverse and beautiful architecture as well as the ancient relics that can be found throughout the land. Some regions appear to have remained unchanged for centuries and a stay in one of our historical, countryside villas in Sicily perfectly encapsulates this magical ambience. Set in the heart of the north-east, a stay in one of our Sicily villas with pool in the area offer access to the popular seaside town of Cefalu as well as the natural beauty of Mount Etna and the Aeolian Islands. You will even find a Benedictine monastery and old mill in the grounds, adding to that lord and lady of the manor feel.

Agricultural festivals

One of the charms of the Sicilian countryside is the abundance of traditional food festivals that are celebrated in the small towns and villages around the land. These festivals, commonly known as ‘sagre’ are wonderful occasions filled with good cheer, where the people of these rural communities can celebrate the fruits of their agricultural labours. So, at certain times of the year Cerda raises a toast to its plump and juicy artichokes, Bronte throws a party for its pistachios, and Caccamo celebrates its sausages in style. Choose to stay in a rural location to sample some of the best of Sicilian cuisine. The aptly named Il Rifugio (‘the refuge’) is a stone villa perched in an atmospheric spot on the coast between San Vito Lo Capo and the beautiful Zingaro Nature Reserve. Il Refugio is one of our country villas which offers acres of private land on your doorstep and with the glittering sea views below, you can get back to nature whilst enjoying a close proximity to the busy town of San Vito Lo Capo. Time your visit right and you might catch the famous Cous Cous Festival when San Vito Lo Capo comes to life with cooking demonstrations and a myriad of food-related entertainment.

Explore mountain villages

The wild scenery of Sicily is typified by craggy mountain ranges, enticing visitors with crisp mountain air, panoramic views and an assortment of charming, traditional villages to explore, far from the madding crowds. A Sicilian country house such as Casa Maya, with its authentically aristocratic interiors, makes for the perfect stay for a small group or family. It’s also situated close to Erice, one of the most picturesque mountain villages on the island. Explore the medieval streets and mighty castles perched high on the hills above Trapani, and absorb the traditional life of this enchanting destination.
