Villa Poggio PigioPollina, North Sicily
Poggio Pigio is a unique holiday home with extensive grounds, sweeping sea views and plenty of contemporary style. Nestled on a verdant mountainside, facing the azure sea and surrounded by twisted olive trees and cork tree woods, it is an incredibly private and scenic setting for a relaxing break with friends or family.
Although secluded, the villa is a short drive up into the Madonie mountain nature reserve from the coast, passing pretty vineyards, olive groves and cactus on the way. An incredible vista greets you on arrival at the villa. Step inside and you are surrounded by blue sea and mountain views on all sides, giving you a glorious backdrop to almost every room and terrace.
Recently refurbished and expanded, the villa feels elegant and welcoming with plenty of seating areas for gathering together or quiet moments of solitude. Air conditioning and underfoor heating adds an extra layer of comfort.
Sliding glass doors take you out to wide terraces furnished for dining or drinks in the shade or sunshine. Your inviting private pool with its pergola and sun loungers is on hand when its time to cool off.
Spanning two levels, with four bedrooms, en suite bathrooms and living/dining space inside and out, every inch of the property has been designed with care using top quality materials. All the rooms are on one floor apart from the gym and two double/twin bedrooms with their en suite bathrooms downstairs, all of which are accessed from the lower level terrace.
There is so much to see and do in the surrounding area too. Head into the mountains for walks or down to the sea, just 15 minutes drive away, for an array of beaches, many of which are hidden from the coast road. The picturesque town of Cefalu with its long sandy beach and medieval historic centre is just half an hours drive away for shops, restaurants and a stroll. Be sure to visit smaller villages too, such as nearby Pollina or Castelbuono in the mountains or the charming Sant Ambrogio on the coast, ideal for a glass of local wine, a slice of Sicilian pizza or ice cream while watching the world go by.
