Detailed villa description
Inside: the main entrance at Il Canneto takes you into the spacious main living area with its high white beamed ceilings (a feature that continues throughout the house) and its clever combination of contemporary furnishings, such as the stylish hanging fireplace, and more traditional pieces of Sicilian furniture. Large glass doors open onto the internal courtyard on one side and onto the pool terraces, with their sea views, on the other. To the right of the luminous living room is the large kitchen diner, which will delight keen cooks thanks to its professional oven and stove, its sea views and its direct access to a sheltered courtyard al fresco dining area. Also on this side of the living area is a double bedroom with en-suite shower room. Heading back across the living room, one comes to another two bedrooms, the sea-view master double, with en-suite bathroom with sunken bath and shower, and another double with en-suite shower room. Lastly, in a room below the pool is a fantastic wellness area and gym including a Turkish bath (for up to four people), a hydromassage tub (for two people), a cyclette, a tapis roulant, a couple of fitness balls, a shower and a WC.
Outside: Il Canneto is surrounded by non-stop terraces, some offering fabulous views, others cosily sheltered and shady! Just outside the main entrance is an aromatic herb garden and the rest of the grounds are planted with Mediterranean flowers, shrubs and trees. Accessed from the kitchen, the outdoor dining area features both a pull-down barbecue and a pizza oven. A flight of steps leads up from here to the rooftop terrace, the perfect panoramic spot from which to take in the views, sip an aperitif and toast the sunset. This is a particularly hedonistic experience if you’ve spent a sunny day lounging around and swimming in the superb infinity pool, whose swimming pump will help you work up an appetite for that pizza you’re planning to make! A panoramic shaded pergola and sun soaked solarium on the other side of the house complete the outdoor living spaces.
