A horse-riding circuit club until the 1970’s, Villa Lilybeum is one of the most beautiful properties on our Sicily programme. Set in grounds of approximately 9000 square metres, with mature gardens laid to lawns, with trees and shrubs, Villa Lilybeum is framed by two elegant porches decorated with a comfy rattan suite and stylish garden furniture. One faces the garden, the perfect spot from where to enjoy the estate’s quiet atmosphere while the other, adorned with a passion fruit evergreen, overlooks the pool area and is a perfect spot for watching the sun set in the evening.The salt-water pool has been designed deliberately to appear seamlessly embedded in the lawn and has Roman step entry at both ends, perfect for families with children.
Villa Lilybeum offers spacious and very comfortable accommodation on two levels and “oozes” quality, with elegant furniture, and beautiful period pieces, complimented by local Sicilian flavour, pottery and tiles. One of the highlights is the artistically decorated plaster fireplace in the living room, which is divided into two, with couches and coffee tables, and affords a wonderful view of the garden through its large windows. Next to the living room is the dining room, with its stylish wooden table and chairs, an authentic old wooden sideboard and a ceramic thermo-fireplace. Off the dining room is the kitchen, offering a perfect mixture of traditional style and modern equipment, with the attractions of both a majolica-tiled wall and a beautiful wooden cabinet.
There are two bedrooms on each level, the master double bedroom has a luxurious en suite bathroom with a marble floor, bathtub and shower cubicle, and the second double bedroom has special features, such as a head board made of wood and carved and painted according to the traditional Sicilian style of the late 19th century.
Villa Lilybeum is 100% eco-friendly. The estate has its own photovoltaic system that powers a modern heating system beneath the floor, and provides the whole electricity supply. In the kitchen you will find a water purifier the irrigation system is designed to collect rainwater, to use to water the garden.
Please note – a caretaker lives in completely separate accommodation on the grounds and will happily answer questions about the property, its appliances or simply about the Sicilian way of life.
