About Podere San Giorgio

 

Framed with sweet-smelling orange groves and immaculate gardens, Podere San Giorgio is a villa in Sicily oozing relaxation and Italian pizzazz. Overlooking the Catania Plains, the villa draws you in and wraps you in a blanket of rich charisma and charm.

Exquisitely decorated in colourful hues, this vast rambling property, exudes grandeur. It has, after all, been owned by the same noble family since 1400. Its eight individually decorated bedrooms use striped furnishings, Aztec patterns and offbeat ornaments to provide plenty of personality. A long, elegant dining table is perfect for candlelit celebrations. Polished terracotta floors, high ceilings and a mix of antiques characterise the rest of the villa, creating a serene, homely and faintly colonial atmosphere.

Wash away your troubles in the expansive pool and allow the concierge, maids and chefs to cater for your every desire. All you need do is make the most of the relaxing atmosphere.

Stroll around the beautiful private park that Podere San Giorgio stands in. Here you can enjoy the collection of palm trees from around the world . Only the chirping of birds will disturb your peace.

From the terraces Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano, broods over the scenic surrounds while the sea laps at Sicily’s shores. There’s tennis, cricket or football to enjoy, and you can unwind with your teammates after in the Finnish sauna.

Podere San Giorgio is the grandest of Sicilian villas. Yet it also feels so homely. And that’s its true beauty.
