A long avenue bordered with magnificent trees forms the splendid approach to Torre del Falco, an imposing late 19th-century villa a few kilometres from the sea in the west of Sicily.
Built entirely of ancient stone, the villa is surmounted by the distinctive tower for which it is named, and surrounded by a magnificent garden planted with olive and citrus trees, palms and cypresses. There is also an exquisitely tended English lawn with a large swimming pool.
The gentle sound of water running into a small lake surrounded by papyrus and bamboo, completes the idyllic picture. Indeed at times, it’s only too easy to imagine you are in an enchanted place.The interior of the villa is decorated with a sophisticated mix of old and new, while at the same time being functional and comfortable.
The villa is laid out on two levels connected by a distintive stone staircase. Reception rooms and kitchen are on the ground floor, the bedrooms upstairs.
