Driving through the gates of San Giuliano and capturing sight of the beautiful house through the exotic palm trees is only the first taste of the magic to come. This is truly one of the finest historic villas in Sicily and needs to be seen to be believed. The property has been in the hands of the same Sicilian noble family since the 12th century.
Its elegant and grand interiors will transport you back in time while modern luxury will keep you comfortably in the present.
Exotically planted gardens and fragrant citrus groves surround the villa. San Giuliano is an oasis of tranquillity, beauty and exceptional hospitality, not too far from the coast, on this island rich in history and colour.
The beautiful gardens ( also part of the Great Italian Gardens Network, and open for private visits from time to time), are rich in fragrant citrus groves, palm trees, all types of plants and trees and carefully manicured lawns.
The pool area is surrounded by palm trees providing natural shade for lying beneath the deep blue Sicilian sky with a glass of chilled white wine.
Behind the pool is the exotic hortus conclusus, the Andalucian-Arabic garden with numerous water features and Mediterranean fragrances.
Not far from the pool ground and garden, you will find the fenced tennis court.
The property is part of a larger farm of 3000 hectares of land, cultivated whit citrus groves, vineyards, olive groves, and other kinds of cultivation.
In the background you can admire the majestic view of the Mount Etna.
Ideal for a large family gathering or a special occasion with friends where one can enjoy superb cuisine, total luxury and the magic of Sicilia!
A large enclosed courtyard with a fabulous fig tree in the centre leads to the main part of the house and other buildings.
The house has recently been restored and the decor, fixture and fittings perfectly compliment the beautiful antique furniture and collectable artwork that has been passed on through generations of this remarkable family. All is of an extremely high standard.
