The villa is awash with colour with an abundance of flowers in pots on terraces and steps.

The striking ambiance is complemented with superior Sicilian fabrics and all contemporary conveniences including LCD TV with SKY channels and pay-TV, DVD/CD player, complimentary WiFi, safe, mini bar, independent air conditioning, tea and coffee facilities, hair dryer, bathrobes, slippers and design toiletries.

At sunset the hotel features a popular cocktail happy hour at sunset with Sicilian appetizers and canapés. The staff is pleased to suggest local restaurants or places to visit. Surrounded by flowers and plants, the new swimming pool also offers the omnipresent views of the Mediterranean.
