Villa Donnafugata Uno is in a spectacular location, the open views are some of the best we have come across in the whole of Italy (and we have seen a few!). The stunning design villa has just been completed and the owner has produced a truly special place for our guests to enjoy.
Entrance to the estate is by a winding driveway and this leads to the parking area. You will be struck initially by the spectacular architecture and then by the stunning location. Entrance to the villa is into the impressive lounge area which has windows all around and from here the view becomes the backdrop to your holiday. There is a large comfortable sofa and the windows lead out to the terraces. Off this room, there is a twin room which has a bathroom.
From here you step into the modern kitchen which enjoys ‘that’ view and is equipped to a high level. There is a breakfast bar and we are sure you will love cooking in this modern kitchen. There are two further double bedrooms with lovely en-suite shower rooms. Throughout the villa, the quality of the fixtures and furnishings is of a high quality.
The circular pool is located close to the outdoor dining area and if you thought the view from the house was good then the view from the pool just gets better.
To the rear of the house, there are huge grounds where you can wander to various shaded areas to read a book or just take in the beautiful Sicilian countryside. An added bonus is that the beautiful Castello Donnafugata is a short walk away and here you can find bars and a couple of local places to dine at.
On this estate there are two design villas (Uno and Due), they are identical in every way apart from the shape of their pool. The owner has ensured that the two houses have the outdoor areas and pools away from each other and that the living spaces face opposite directions, hence despite the vicinity level of privacy is high. For larger parties who rent both villas there is a large outdoor dining table which seats up to 14 people. We are sure that Villa Donnafugata will be a great hit with Essential Italy clients and we recommend booking sooner rather than later.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in August 2019 with friends in the adjoining villa and had a wonderful time. Very relaxing. Location is quite rural so a car is essential but beaches supermarkets shops and restaurants are all within 20 minutes and it's a great base for exploring the gorgeous towns in this corner of Sicily. The villas are spacious, light and well equipped - including fresh vegetables in the garden and with amazing views so we were happy to stay in in the evenings. The owner, Bruno, could not have been more welcoming and helpful - from coming to meet our very late arrival in the village (with welcome dinner) to delivery of freshly baked fruit tarts mid week.

A truly spectacular villa. The owner Bruno was wonderfully helpful throughout our stay. I couldn't recommend the overall service highly enough and will definitely book again. August 2019

We had the pleasure of staying at Villa Donnafugato Uno and Due. Both villas are beautifully furnished to a high specification, extremely comfortable and clean and well stocked for basic kitchen essentials. The owner of the villas, Bruno, was very hospitable and responsive and we loved trying the local Sicilian delicacies. Our Essential Italy rep was very helpful in guiding us to local areas and assisting with recommendations. We had a truly amazing relaxing holiday. Thank you to everyone at Essential Italy that helped us booking our holiday.
