we propose a prestigious period luxury villa belonging to a noble family. This enchanting and suggestive villa with 16,000 meters of land is located in the highest part of the ancient and historical promontory Plemmyrion in a context of noble villas belonging to other Sicilian noble families.The access to the Villa is characterized by a tree-lined avenue of specimens of pinus pinea that allow a glimpse of only a part of the villa as if to leave the guest, who walks along the avenue, a longer wait before the facade is revealed at the end of the same avenue. main in all the splendor of her: as a kind woman who wants to gradually thank her beloved of her. At the beginning of the century, as evidenced by a vintage photo, two magnificent lions flaunted on the sides of the staircase leading to the villa: these two marble stone sculptures were stolen during the Second World War; today a magnificent pair of centenary cicas is set up in front of the entrance staircase. This ancient dwelling has an annex corresponding to an old rural building in which the stable for the horses shelter was located and where the entire servants also resided including the coachman of the family carriage; inside the park another more recent period building in Art Nouveau style corresponding to a pavilion intended for ceremonies and large events with a large hall; in the part facing a swimming pool with solarium area to cool off from the summer heat in full family intimacy or in the company of welcome guests. As evidence of the family crest, an ancient heraldic crest carved in stone peeks out from among the vegetation of the botanical garden on a stone watchtower at the top of which it was the custom of the noble owners to spend relaxing moments looking at the sea of ​​Il grande porto. The Villa has luxurious environments and is characterized by a beautiful habitable veranda surmounted by a wrought iron structure in Art Nouveau style. The sumptuous villa kept in excellent condition with all its furnishings is spread over three levels for 600 square meters and has 9 rooms in total, a huge hall also used for balls for the great parties that were organized inside. : this large living room adjoins another dining room including, as a divider, a beautiful and ancient double-sided stone fireplace that was used to heat both rooms. Outside, a beautiful nineteenth-century botanical garden revisited by none other than the well-known Ettore Paternò del Toscano who grafted inside a considerable number of rare plants still existing today including: evolved chycas and monumental plants such as phoenix canariensis, whashingtonia robusta, araucaria excelsa, figus retusa, American agaves mitriformis and other centuries-old plants typical of the area such as the carob and the ceratonia siliqua. Walking along the internal paths it seems to go back in time by almost two hundred years. The origin of the villa is much older and from some studies the villa itself was built on an area where there was a fortified building dating back to the time of the foundation of Greek Syracuse: there are in fact graphic representations of ancient travelers who designed it which would seem to be a castle with watchtowers right where this villa is today. This fascinating territory is also described by the great poet Virgil in the third book of the Aeneid. We are in the land that gave birth to the great physical and mathematical genius Archimedes a few hundred meters from the coves of the Syracusan coast that overlooks the island of Ortigia bathed by an enchanting and blue sea where history tells of great naval battles between the Corinthians Syracusans and the Athenians first and then against the Roman siege. This villa deserves to return to its former glory.
