Villa Zagara

Set on a country estate among luxuriant citrus groves, Villa Zagara lies in one of the most beautiful corners of Sicily, snug between Mount Etna and the Sea. Spacious and refined, with magnificent gardens, a conservatory and belvedere, a large swimming pool (16x7m) and a private tennis court, it is the epitome of stylish Sicilian country living: it comes with a full staff, including an inspired chef.
The owner, a passionate gardener, has created a magnificent landscaped garden featuring pines, oleanders, acacias, carob trees, agave and yucca palms, along with aromatic Mediterranean plants such as bay, lavander and myrtle. The much-prized palmeto, an impressive garden devoted to the cultivation of palm varieties from all over the world, is sided by an exotic desert garden with a collection of cacti. Crossing the garden one reaches the comfortable conservatory furnished with ample and very comfortable sofas and a beautiful lava stone fireplace
The house features 8 bedrooms, 4 on each floor, all decorated with traditional furniture and antiques and featuring either a private terrace or direct access to the garden. On the pper floor a library and a belvedere with a stunning view of Etna create spaces for meditation and yoga. A magnificent swimming pool, a sauna and a tennis court (floodlit for playing at night) add the final touch to a stay in this splendid villa. The Tunisian chef fuses influences from North Africa with traditional Sicilian cuisine, using mostly organic local produce. The fascinating grounds contain nature trails, archeological remains and even prehistoric caves.
