Villa TaliaCefalù, North Sicily
Vista sulla spiaggia
Villa Talia offers sea views and mountain scenery combined with fresh modern interiors to make this pearl an exceptional holiday home for small groups or couples.
The Sicilian architect, Sandro Giacomarra, skillfully designed Villa Talia on the mountainside to maximise the incredible sea views. The result is a sea view from almost every room and outside space. A large decked terrace made from restored African hardwood railway sleepers runs the length of the house. The cooling plunge pool or relaxing deckchairs provide plenty of opportunities to unwind while a shaded dining terrace by a grassy area off the kitchen is a lovely spot for lazy lunches or barbecues overlooking the sea.
A modern colour palette of greys and whites is peppered with splashes of summer colours in the fabrics and artworks around the villa, giving it a unique character and style. Guests can enjoy sea views from bed with floor to ceiling windows in both the master double bedroom and the twin bedroom. A contemporary open plan living area with large comfortable sofas, kitchen and dining area also has the floor to ceiling windows out to the decked terrace and those magnificent views.
The pool open from the 1 May, shops and restaurants is an easy drive or invigorating walk away in the coastal village of Sant Ambrogio, while the delights of the town of Cefalu are also a short drive from the villa.
Please note: The discreet owner of Villa Talia owns a small wooden house about 15 metres from Villa Talia where he stays for the weekend to be on hand for guests arriving/departing and for any further assistance. The pool is not visible from the wooden house, but the driveway shared between the two houses. The access road leading up to the villa is steep and narrow, and drivers should be prepared to reverse when necessary to let another car pass.
Ground floor: sitting room/dining area and kitchen with glass sliding doors leading out to a decked terrace, plunge pool, lawn and shaded outside dining area. One double bedroom with French windows out to the garden and a bathroom en suite, one twin bedroom and one shower room.
