Exclusive and luxurious property featuring in typical Sicilian-Arab style, by Alcantara river, the ancient Onobola of the Romans. Gorgeous the scenery in which the villa is located: pure nature just 2 km's away the town center of Francavilla. The stunning building, characterized by pointed arch windows and caisson ceiling, spreads on two level. On the first one there are: a welcome area (15 sq.m.); 1 bedroom with private bathroom (25 sq.m.); a professional kitchen full equipped (15 sq.m.); a luxurious lounge with fireplace and bar (30 sq.m.); an orangery (30 sq.m.) where you can enjoy the breakfast, the meals and ... a book ! On the second level we have other 4 bedrooms each one with private bathroom. A large terrace it's overlooking the Alcantara river and the park of the property. The property boasts stylish and elegant furnitures and has been just restored. The exterior (5.000 square meters) it's characterized by: many romantic corners with a lot of different species of plants and flowers (papyrus, palm trees, roses, lavender, jasmine ...); a BBQ area inside a wooden patio; a playground; many paths from wich you can enjoy the stunning landscape of the place. And most of all the gorgeous pool area with jacuzzi.

Breakfast included: Our chef Silvana, the Chef of the Sicilians, has a gift for you ! She will deliver you a tasting of genuine and healthy typical Sicilian breakfast directly hand-made by her (plumcakes, cookies, tarts …)

This property belongs to a member of Mammasicily (or Il Console), the exclusive Sicilian Association chaired by the distinguished Sicilian chef Silvana Recupero and by her husband, 'the motorwriter' (Rai, Chin ... Canada) Giovanni Vallone who personally guarantee the quality of the structure.

Also, as for all the other properties advised by Mammasicily, you will have a daily assistance for whatever you need (for a no surprises vacation). In fact, the Association, as per by law, has the aim: “... of enhancing the resources of traditions, culinary arts …assuring a good and nice stay to Sicily's guests” (Art. 2)

Mammasicily is a no-profit Association focused to the realization of several Sicilian projects, as: the preservation of naturalistic and archeological areas; the printing of old Sicilian texts kept at the library of the Association; the recording of Radio and Tv programs broadcasted all over the world; the preparation of new Sicilian recipes …

Travellers, of course, are welcome to our headquarter. On request you may attend a Sicilian Cooking School with Silvana or an Etna exploration with Giovanni. Also, contact them for any information you want about the property or about their beloved island. We are here to give you the best Sicily you have ever had !
