"Converted Farmhouse Le Corti di Cannamara in Sicily, Italy
Gather 13 friends and head to the idyllic shores of south-western Sicily for la dolce vita, eco-style. This converted farmhouse has seven bedrooms, plenty of outdoor lounging and dining space (including a shaded loggia with al fresco kitchen), and perks like a movie room, herb garden, fireplaces, pool, and even its own hammam with adjacent relaxation area.
If all that weren't cool enough, the sea-view villa employs solar panels and biomass boilers that run on olive tree husks (readily available from the nearby olive groves), and the upstairs bedrooms are primarily lit and ventilated by skylight-type windows. Plus, there's a "secret" rose garden."
