Luxury private villa in Sicily — Casa Licata is located on the Southern coast of Sicily, just 40 minutes from the famous Valle dei Templi at Agrigento and only six miles away from the nearest beach, within a private estate amongst a picturesque grove of olive trees.
The villa exudes typical Sicilian charm with its beamed ceilings and rustic style furniture. The living room and kitchen lead onto a lovely terrace, ideal for dining al-fresco or having a barbecue whilst enjoying the views over the surrounding countryside; olive oil produced on the estate is available to add local flavour to your home cooked meals. A private pool and air conditioning provide a cooling escape from the Sicilian mid-day sun.
The nearby harbour town of Licata, once a major trading crossroads with origins dating back to the Palaeolithic era, now takes a more modest role, with its focus on fishing. There are several museums here with artefacts from the Romano-Greek era, as well as churches and some Liberty-style architecture.And do visit the town of Piazza Armerina for its archeological excavations (especially the famous, splendid Roman mosaics of Villa del Casale) — at just over an hour's drive it would make an excellent day out.
