tenuta di san giorgio

7 nights villa rental from £14,000 tenuta di san giorgio sicily

This luxury 10 bedroom villa is one of the island's exceptional private properties available for large family gatherings or a special celebration.

Located between Mount Etna and the sea on the eastern side of Sicily, Tenuta di San Giorgio is a very fine example of Sicilian elegance, with eight individually decorated exquisite spacious suites, complete with luxury en suite bath or shower rooms with Sicilian bathroom amenities, and each with doors to a private balcony or to the garden.

The large swimming pool (15m x 7m) is flanked by the stunning Orangerie, with its elegant drawing and dining rooms forming the social heart of the house; its upper floor enjoying breathtaking views of the valley and Mount Etna. A sauna and floodlit tennis court nestle within the orange groves, and home-grown produce is used in local and Mediterranean cuisine, prepared by the villa cook for every meal.  Perfect for those seeking an easy life on holiday!

In the same family since the 15th century, the estate is now a thriving organic citrus farm.  The manor house is set in lawned tropical gardens designed by a famous Italian landscape gardener and is lush with precious palm trees collected from all over the world: carob, agaves, aromatic Mediterranean shrubs and surrounded by the citrus orchards.

Villa rental includes cook (all meals) and maid service daily, and an airport (Catania) meet and greet service.

For excursions to some of the regions most impressive cultural attractions, the villa is an hour from Syracuse, and about 80 minutes from both Noto and Ragusa. 

Nearest shops and restaurants are in Scordia, 15 minutes drive away.  Nearest beach:  30km.
