There's more to these villas than great pools

The coolest villas in Europe have extra special touches, from your own spa and yoga room to a private golf course, says Caroline Hendrie...

Beach house
Palazzo Hedoné, Sicily
"This extremely chic villa has 11 bedrooms and comes with a private beach house that has two bedrooms, so some guests can stay overnight. The villa is in the old town of Scicli and has grass-covered terraces overlooking the Baroque church domes and fine architecture of the Unesco heritage town. There's a heated pool in a courtyard, a hot tub and a secluded outdoor dining area.... Think Sicily." (Palazzo Hedoné also has a sauna, a hammam and a private chef, ed.)
