Fontane Bianche

A design villa that transports its guests to the Mediterranean via Miami, with loud pops of colour and a glorious Seventies vibe

Fontane Bianche is a spacious and colourful, modernist design villa that lies two blocks from the sea in a small town of the same name on Sicily’s glorious south-eastern coast.

Terrazzo floors and cool and characterful ceramics shout Italy, specifically Sicily, yet the exterior tiles, the sunshine yellow kitchen and front door, the palms and the split staircase down to the lawn and pool are pure Miami. None of it would look out of place in a Slim Aarons photograph.

The house’s bright and bold design happily transports guests to different countries and decades. It is a house made for holidays full of family, friends and fun and, as such, it is as spacious and comfortable as it is zingy and zany.

The white-painted bedrooms are large and airy, with beautiful smooth floors, mid-century furniture and pops of individual colour. Large, comfy beds, fabulous views and doors to a terrace give a hotel vibe, while the en-suites have beautiful zellige tiles and some have double basins and one has a bath.

There are spacious living and dining areas inside, while outside there are numerous pockets for guests to hide away with a book or socialise together. Seventies cane furniture leans into the bygone glamour of the place and it’s a house built for sashaying, cocktail in hand, across the crazy paving and down the split stairs to the pool lawn. Even the planting is cinematic, with cactus, palms and bougainvillea framing the view of the sea.

Fontane Bianche is a joyful property. There is, of course, a sandy beach and the Ionian Sea on the doorstep, but if guests want to step even further back in time, Syracusa, Ortigia and Noto are full of ancient history and each is less than 20km away.

Rooms description


Airy and spacious with beautiful terrazzo floors and glass doors to outside, the bedrooms are pure Mediterranean holiday style. One room has single beds and although fabulous for children, could equally well suit adults.


Each bedroom has an en-suite shower room and one has a bath too. High-quality fixtures and fittings are matched by beautiful zellige tiles in different colours.


The well-equipped kitchen, with its sunshine yellow cupboards, sea-coloured zig-zag tiles and beautiful terrazzo floor, is open-plan to the dining area and sitting room. Guests will find everything they need to make feasts from the fresh local ingredients. The inside dining table has views across the pool to the sea. There is further dining space outside.

Living rooms

The vast living room has an enormous L-shaped sofa and three armchairs, all design-led, and the space lends itself perfectly to a party or a relaxing night in, with doors that open to the terrace and views of the sea.

This property is not specifically suited to less mobile guests due to the different levels.


The outside space is a kaleidoscope of textures, shapes, levels and planting, unified by seaside glamour. Guests won’t be able to stop themselves from living their best holiday life – drinks on the terrace, dinners under the stars and pool parties on the lower lawn. There are sunloungers and easy chairs and plenty of space for everyone. It’s also just a short stroll out the gate to dinner or the beach.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request

  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
