Set within a historic grove of nespole (loquat plum trees) and surrounded by a truly magical garden, Villa Augusta comprising a main house and two annexes lies on the north coast of Sicily between Palermo and Cefalu. Here outdoor life has been turned into an elegant way of living, and what is more, it’s just 50 metres from the sea, with its own mooring. It is perhaps the garden which is the villa’s most extraordinary feature, created by the owner as a miniature version of one of the grand botanical landscaped gardens of days gone by. To integrate it with the nespoleto, the garden was designed as a kind of hanging or terraced garden with a splendid collection of exotic palms, aromatic plants and tropical flowers around the superb swimming pool complex.
The Province of Palermo stretches out in northern Sicily and looks out over the Tyrrhenian Sea, with a tract of splendid coast opening out into the Carini Gulf, Palermo and Termini Imerese. The seafront is fascinating for its fantastic colors, ranging from intense blue to the green of vegetation, along with the constrasting dark hues of rocks against white beaches of finest sand. Besides the beauty of nature, renowned localities and marvelous artistic treasures from different eras make this territory special and unique, a popular tourist spot well-known among visitors.
