Villa Palmento within easy reach of the historic hill town of Caltagirone and just a 45-minute drive from long, sandy beaches, Villa Palmento, is also an excellent base for discovering the delights of this corner of Sicily
The villa is set in an impressive 24 acres of enclosed grounds, giving you absolute privacy and space to unwind and enjoy the natural setting. Explore the grounds on foot or mountain bike, following pathways through olive, fruit, eucalyptus and pine trees. From here, there are unspoilt views which extend over the Sicilian countryside dotted with prickly pears, agaves and yuccas. On a clear day, you can even see the sea – it is a magical place
A terrace backed with fragrant lavender and rosemary is for gathering together. Lie back on the outdoor sofas or sit around a large, shaded dining table while you enjoy fresh local produce cooked on the fabulous barbecue. Luxuriate in your cooling infinity pool with its distinctive waterfall or enjoy a glass of wine under the pool pergola, on the lawn or under the centennial olive tree – you really are spoilt for choice
your doorstep is the colourful town of Caltagirone, famous for its painted ceramics but also where you will find shops, restaurants, historic buildings and a beautiful historic tiled staircase. Within an hour by car are fascinating sites to discover from UNESCO protected baroque towns, to nature reserves and sandy beaches
Inside, the villa feels light-filled and inviting, with its neutral colour palette and excellent quality contemporary furnishings. The sitting room at the heart of the villa overlooks the pool, with large linen sofas, a Bose music player and satellite TV. A dining room connects to a well-equipped kitchen and through to the outside dining area.
The bedrooms have all been thoughtfully designed, each with an en-suite bathroom and a distinctive style, including a bed made from old barrels from the winery. Sleeping up to nine, there are two double bedrooms in the main house – the master suite and a double with a single bed. The ‘salotto del vino’ is the third bedroom in the heart of the winery where the grapes used to be crushed to make wine. The fourth is a modern annexe, just a short walk from the main villa.
Staff are on hand to make your stay as relaxing as possible. The maid service is daily, and extras can be arranged from laundry, ironing, and shopping to a private chef and babysitting.

Like all the other reviews, this Villa exceeded all our expectations. Lynda went out of her way to help us plan the perfect trip to Sicily. The kitchen was very well equipped which meant we could could have our own BBQ and experiment with local fresh food. The coffee machine worked perfectly which kept all the caffeine addicts happy! The outdoor space is wonderful at all hours of the day. The view is truly stunning, with no noise from roads or passing cars. We had a chef and waiter prepare a meal one evening. The service was incredible and each dish was explained fully along the way. I’ll be recommending this villa to family and friends!
Absolutely incredible villa! I visited with my family and I cannot even begin to describe how amazing the villa was... it was stunning! Lynda & Gipi were amazing hosts and I don't think another holiday is going to able to match the stay we had in this space. It was squeaky clean, the kitchen is state of the art, the pool was perfectly warm, the linen was of great quality... I'm out of words at how great of an Airbnb this is :)
Villa Palmento is absolutely beautiful...exactly as pictured. They take great care of the small details - lovely soaps, shampoo, etc. The kitchen is also well stocked for guests who want to cook a lot. Having Aldo across the street is very nice in case you need anything at all. Overall, great home, great stay! We are already talking about coming back!
La maison est tout simplement sublime, avec une superbe vue sur la montagne, au calme avec de très beaux équipements. La cuisine est équipée plus que ce que nous pouvons l’imaginer et l’intérieur de la maison est décoré avec goût. Nos hôtes et également Aldo qui étaient là pour nous tout au long du séjour ont été aux petits soins pour nous du début à la fin. Lynda est très réactive et précise dans toutes les informations qu’elle nous a donné avant et pendant le séjour. Je ne peux que recommander vivement cette magnifique maison pour un séjour au calme au cœur de la Sicile avec de super hôtes !
Absolutely gorgeous and private location, carefully designed villa equipped with everything you can think of. It is a perfect location to really take in rural Sicily and explore the beautiful towns of Caltagirone, Ragusa, Noto etc. or just chill by the pool and do a BBQ. Having stayed in many airbnbs before I can say that the hosts here have exceeded my expectations. The kitchen was cleaned every morning before we woke up and the bedrooms were cleaned in the middle of the day when we were out. Excellent communication and flexible hosts. There was a book that included curated recommendations that made us feel even more local in the area and eat really well! The hosts even left surprise gifts in the house for us to take home on the last day. Cannot recommend it enough.
