About us

It was my experience and love of Sicily that prompted me to make Sicily a second home. Coming from a background where my mother is Sicilian, originally from Noto (Siracusa province) and my Father from Surrey, England and a British army officer, I travelled extensively. I grew up between a boarding school in North London, North Africa, Germany and Hong Kong but it was Sicily that I connected with the most. I eventually went on to buy and restore my own property and with the help from my Sicilian family and friends The Sicilian Villa Company was born.

The Sicilian Villa Company offers holiday rental properties in all areas including its smaller islands. We are always seeking new and exciting properties to add to our expanding portfolio. You may relax in the countryside in a "masseria" (Sicilian farmhouse), enjoy one of our seafront villas with their panoramic views or immerse yourself in history in one of our baroque town properties in the Noto Valley or an apartment in Ortygia, Siracusa's old town. I am still fascinated by the diversity of Sicily’s landscape and history and am anxious for everyone who visits to have the opportunity to explore and share in all that Sicily has to offer. Our goal is to make your holiday a relaxed and happy memory and if there is any service that we can provide or information you require, that we have not mentioned in our literature, please just ask.

We have developed a network of local Sicilians who are available to guide you through the myriad of historical and architectural sights. We can also help you arrange a variety of tours including nature, walking, visiting Mt. Etna, scuba diving and snorkeling, fishing and cycling. It is also possible for you to be met at the airport and escorted to your chosen property. Sicily is famous for its gastronomic delights and if you are interested it is possible for us to arrange cooking classes for you in your own villa. Likewise we can arrange for meals to be prepared for you and recommend restaurants and help you make reservations. Our network extends to professional catering and photography services and we would be delighted to facilitate a wedding or special occasion for you. The choices are almost endless but it's up to you how much or little you want to do once you get here. Don't forget, you can always come back!
