"The best villa in Sicily... There is an embarrassment of beauty at Don Arcangelo all’Olmo. It is exquisitely peaceful...It's like having your own five-star hotel...” Condé Nast Traveller, The Best of Sicily.

Don Arcangelo all'Olmo (or L'Olmo for short) is, quite simply, the finest property currently available for rent in Sicily. It is a superbly finished luxury villa in a stunning and perfectly peaceful setting between the sea and Mount Etna. The views, the gardens, the heated pool and Jacuzzi, the style of the house, the fittings and furnishings and the relaxed but professional nature of the welcome make it a hard act to beat indeed!

"We had a very relaxing holiday in a small paradise. The in-villa cook was really great, very kind and available for any type of request.” Edgar van Tuyll, Switzerland, May 2015

Inside: the accommodation is in two main buildings. The first is the original Casale and is structured as follows: the main entrance takes you left into the house and straight on to the garden. Inside the house, on the ground floor is the wonderfully fitted kitchen, dining room and a sequence of reception areas leading through arched doorways to a large living area with open fireplace and doors leading to the garden. Upstairs is accommodation for eight in four double bedrooms. Above the main living area is accommodation for a further six people in three beautifully appointed rooms with en-suite bathrooms and an 8th double bedroom with en-suite bathroom is situated on the ground floor. The second building (the "Casa all'Olmo") is a luxuriously restored farm house directly next to the Casale with a large sitting room, bright and spacious hallway, large and perfectly designed kitchen and accommodation for eight in four double rooms. All bedrooms have air conditioning and en-suite bathrooms. 8 bathrooms have a shower and a tub while the other 4 have commodious showers.

Outside: you will be absolutely charmed by the colourful, fragrant grounds whose design harks back to the Arabic belief that gardens should be a place of delight and wonder. Extensive outside living areas, with terraces for dining and relaxing, lead down, via manicured lawns and lush, perfumed Mediterranean flora, past the panoramic Jacuzzi, to the beautiful heated pool and yet more flourishing, luxuriant greenery. The views from the gardens to the sea are interrupted only by large expanses of citrus groves,while in the opposite direction, you will become transfixed by the awe-inspiring sight of Mount Etna... All in all this is one of the most spectacular locations in Sicily.

Service: L'Olmo is a fully-serviced villa whose excellent staff, including cook, waiters and maids, will ensure that you fully enjoy your stay without having to worry about anything domestic. For meals, just let the staff know day by day whether you require lunch and/or dinner, tell them of any preferences you may have and they will organise everything else. Meals are paid for locally, please see the details on the right hand side of this page.

Exploring the local Area

Situated near the town of Giarre on the east coast of Sicily about half way between Catania and Taormina, Don Arcangelo all'Olmo is a good base from which to visit Taormina, Catania, Mount Etna and the various fascinating villages on its flanks. There are also several charming fishing villages and some nice beaches nearby. An eighteen hole golf course is about 45 minutes drive away.

Further afield, Syracuse, the baroque towns of the Noto valley, the quiet beaches of Vendicari and Capo Passero to the south and Messina to the north are all comfortably reachable for day trips.

We can also arrange for you to over fly Mount Etna and many other sites, or to make excursions to the Aeolian Islands, by helicopter.

The nearby beaches of Fiumefreddo and Marina di Cottone have received several consecutive "Bandiere Blu", attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence.
