What we love

  • Private tennis court
  • Large grounds
  • Elegant decor

The property consists of a main patronal villa and two annexes, surrounded by a wonderful four-hectare park awarded as one of the best contemporary ornamental gardens in Italy. Few places in Sicily match the charm and allure of Villa Altera. This luxury getaway offers complete privacy, a sophisticated lifestyle catered by its staff, traditional décor and modern amenities. It is located just 15 minutes by car from the beaches of Brucoli, half an hour from Siracusa and approx. one hour from Taormina. The estate produces its own prestigious wine, extra virgin olive oil and other products grown by traditional organic farming methods.

Feel yourself drift into the old aristocratic Sicilian life. The family coat of arms, sculpted in white marble, is positioned in a corner of the entrance to greet the guests entering the villa. Beautifully maintained dramatic and spacious interiors include formal dining and very generous living rooms. Separate comfortable TV room. The elegant décor of all rooms is attained by using heirloom antique furniture combined with cheerful fabrics and high-end upholstery, achieving a very well balanced timeless style. The original tiled floors and the vaulted ceilings were left intact to preserve the historic home’s original architectural details. The villa is equipped for large groups and its chef offers a delightful typical Sicilian cuisine.

The gates of the villa open to a fantastic exotic park. The outdoor space is completely manicured offering plenty of areas for dining, lounging and sunbathing. Relax and entertain around the private pool that sits in a secluded oasis, or to be active, enjoy the tennis court and the several walking trails amidst citrus trees and olive orchards.

Discover the rich Sicilian culture while enjoying this luxury and full of attendance country villa where vacation living is at its finest. Once you stay at Villa Altera you really understand the uniqueness of this property and this special part of the island.
