This is a 2 double bedroom villa set within its own 12 acres of pristine and ancient olive grove. The house itself has a new fitted kitchen and is well stocked for all culinary needs. The house is surrounded by private gardens with outdoor cooking and dining, private pool, hammocks, sun lounging, outdoor games and children's toys, fruit trees and parking. A double sofa bed in the lounge provides additional sleeping.
Within the grounds you can explore the local rivers, streams and waterfalls and enjoy fresh fruit and vegetables from the orchard and kitchen garden. The estate is set across two levels separated by a steep hillside upon which one can walk through natural Sicilian vegetation. The surrounding area is perfectly safe for children to play and explore the local nature and wildlife. The house also contains bird watching equipment to help you enjoy the local birdlife such as the colourful bee eaters that nest in the hills or the eagles that effortlessly catch thermals rising in the valley.
A welcome basket of local produce and wine will meet you on arrival. Towels, bed linen, books, dvds, a selection of music, information on local activities and attractions, free wifi, a selection of outdoor games and equipment are all included.

The town of Sciacca is just 6km drive from the villa. Sciacca is a vibrant fishing town with an ancient past. It's architecture reveals the plethora of cultures that have made their home here over the millennia. Sciacca is full of fantastic bars and restaurants; from the main square to the small backstreets, the portside to the marina. Sicily's well known beaches begin from the town and spread outwards in both directions. Each beach unique, stunning and different from the last.
Drive just 20 minutes north of the villa and one is in glorious Sicilian mountains. Small villages, unchanged for centuries, cling precariously to mountain sides. The roads that wind through the mountains are a driver's and cyclist's paradise. The villa is also used as a base for climbing expeditions on the local limestone rocks.

The Villa and gardens are entirely private. The Lucchese Team are on call as and when you need them.
The house is well stocked, clean and tidy. We ask our guests to treat it with respect but otherwise it's all yours!
Hi! I'm Sam, the estate manager at Tenuta Tagliaferro. The estate has been in my family since 2002 and I've recently swapped my career in academia to run the estate full time. I've loved Sciacca and Sicily since we first met 15 years ago! I'm a passionate rock climber, surfer, swimmer and cyclist... hopefully soon also kite surfing!
I live just five minutes from the villa and I'm always on call if you need me.
I hope you have a wonderful time on our beautiful estate.
