A property for aesthetes in search of comfort and tranquility on a stretch of wild and wonderful Sicilian coastline
Tucked away on the beautiful south-west coast of Sicily, this splendid property blends seamlessly into its environment, surrounded by an abundance of both cultivated and wild nature.
Le Pietre is a chic and sophisticated piece of inhabitable art. The interiors of this luxury villa are a real-life study of chiaroscuro, brought alive with a judicious choice of modern furniture and fixtures which promise an equality of form and function.
The single-storey property is made up of three separate areas: the East Room is a double suite, while the West Room is an apartment for two guests with a small kitchen and dining area and lounge. Each has a separate entrance and private garden space and they can be rented independently or together.
The middle space is a private house belonging to the host. While this set-up is unusual, guests can expect hotel-level service, albeit as discreet and as low-key as it is luxurious.
Food is central to the experience and guests can order any meal to be eaten on their private terrace or elsewhere in the stunning grounds. A rooftop pool and lounge area offer sea views that will have guests searching for property to buy. However, they will be hard-pushed to find anything that is on a par with Le Pietre.
The hosts offer riding and jeep excursions and will share with guests their intimate knowledge of this beguiling landscape. A stay at Le Pietre is one where guests are left with no option but to switch off, rest and recalibrate. There are few places better suited to such pursuits.
