Property Description

Villa Altera, also known as BRV ATR, is an 8-bedroom villa in Sicily, located a 15-minute drive from the beach and a 30-minute drive from town. Surrounded by an award-winning 4-hectare park with wonderful ornamental gardens, the property consists of a main villa and 2 annexes.
The family coat of arms, sculpted in white marble, is positioned in a corner of the entrance to greet guests.

Beautifully maintained, the spacious interiors include a formal dining and living room, and a separate, comfortable TV room. The elegant décor features heirloom antique furniture, cheerful fabrics and high-end upholstery. The original tiled floors and the vaulted ceilings were left intact to preserve the historic home’s original architectural details.

Each air-conditioned bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed. Five bedrooms are located in the main villa, while 3 bedrooms are situated in an annex. The first and second bedrooms each offer a fireplace, an ensuite bathroom with tub and shower, and a view of Volcano Etna. The other bedrooms offer a garden view.

The gates open to an exotic park. The outdoor space is completely manicured with ample areas for dining, lounging, and sunbathing. A deck with loungers surrounds the private pool. A tennis court and several walking trails amidst citrus trees and olive orchards adorn the grounds. The property also features a private family chapel, which guests may visit, but cannot use for any celebration or event.

The estate produces its own wine, extra virgin olive oil, and other products grown by traditional organic farming methods. This villa also comes with a barbecue, satellite TV and WiFi. A crib and highchair are available upon request.

Villa Altera, or BRV ATR, has house cleaning services available during the week.
