Delphina


Description


Welcome to Villa Delphina, a contemporary 4-bedroom property overlooking the Mediterranean off the southeastern tip of Sicily. Located within a natural reserve, the villa offers all the tranquillity of the countryside while maintaining proximity to some of the island's best-known spots. Sicily has a vast array of natural wonders and historical sites scattered across its shore. Towns such as Taormina, Catania, Ragusa, Noto and Syracuse are popular on day trips or excursions. Mt Etna is one of the island's most notable attractions, as Sicily's tallest mountain and Europe's highest active volcano. Booking a guided hike with our concierge service to its summit is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

Further up the east coast, Taormina is one of the best-known towns on the island, situated on top of Mount Tauro. The town's height offers panoramic views from Mount Etna's smouldering peak down too far below sparkling sea. The city also features details from its storied past, laying home to some of the most iconic Greek Theaters globally, which host the town's annual art and film festival, 'Taormina Arte'. In addition, Taormina has a significant number of terrific restaurants, entertainment, and clubs to cater to the growing number of tourists that visit each year.

The towns of Syracuse and Noto are located much closer to Villa Delphina and are great options for an afternoon excursion. Syracuse is another town known for its incredible architecture. Wandering through the streets of Ortigia will lead you to the impressive baroque cathedral and the historical temple of Athena. The site of the Greek legend, the fountain of Arethusa, should not be missed.

The town of Noto lies adjacent to the beautiful unspoiled beaches of Calamosche, Eloro and Cittadella within the Vendicardi natural reserve, which is the habitat of thousands of migrating flamingos and sea turtles nests. Each year in the third week of May, Noto becomes awash with colour during the "Infiorata" festival, where local artists work through the night to carpet the streets with vibrant flowers. While visiting the town, be sure to venture into Noto Antica, the older town, or to the necropolis at Pantalica and the Ispica Caves. With so many possible activities to try, our comprehensive will ensure you are prepared for every adventure.

Villa Delphina is the perfect spot for those looking to spend time in the unspoiled scenery and waters of Sicily. This beautiful seaside retreat is ideal for a young family looking to spend time at the many local beaches or a group of friends hoping to experience the region's rich history and culture. The sizable patio is finished with natural textures and materials that blend impeccably into the natural surroundings. From here, you can enjoy the breathtaking views of the sunrise over the azure bay from the swinging bed. The outdoor dining area and BBQ make cooking for your family at home an absolute delight. How better could you spend the evening than watching the kids frolic in the pool all afternoon, followed by a quiet evening cocktail in the cosy outdoor sitting area once they have gone to bed with the lights of the town across the water twinkling in the distance. The private infinity pool includes a wet solarium for ultimate relaxation. The paved terrace comes furnished with stylish sunbeds and an outdoor shower. Your guests are sure to spend much of their day here soaking up the sun.

The villa's bright interior reflects the soft blues and whites of the coast outside, giving the space a casual, seaside feel. The open plan living area features plushly upholstered sofas, chairs, and large TV, as well as a lovely fireplace that also functions to divide this space from the dining area. The white-wash table can easily accommodate up to 12 guests, making this property perfect for anyone who enjoys entertaining. Your guests can easily flow from the panoramic patio through the wide glass sliding doors to the adjacent dining area for a seamless indoor-outdoor experience. Take the stress out of catering and have a personal chef prepare some of the local cuisines so you can focus on creating a memorable evening. The first floor of the property mirrors the laidback coastal atmosphere downstairs. There is an additional lounge area tastefully furnished with sofas and a corner bar. The warm natural wood, colourful artwork, and wide sliding doors onto the sunny panoramic patio deliver a chill summer vibe.
