The Shape of Sicily
Don Arcangelo all’Olmo
“Home is everything. Home is what makes staying at a villa so enchanting. Though the property might share some features with a five-star hotel – white-glove service, a swimming pool with an ocean view – no lobby artwork can match the antique family portraits, priceless heirlooms and exotic souvenirs that grace every inch of L’Olmo."
Rocca delle Tre Contrade
“The stunning pink structure stands out atop a hill, offering 360-degree views of Mount Etna, the Ionian Sea and miles of lemon groves. Along with a breath-taking L-shaped infinity pool, the citrus trees’ roots follow the shelf structure of the vineyards that once grew there. A daunting bridge leads to a nearby village, Santa Venerina, and reminds me of another appeal of the villa – complete privacy.”
Cubo al Mare
“Perhaps the best link between Sicily’s past and future can be found in a simple white box facing the sea. Awe-inspiring in its simplicity, Cubo al Mare is a two-floor tribute to the modern museums beloved by its owner.”
