Villa Danae is a elegantly-restored contemporary house within an ancient farmhouse or masseria with impressive views of the summit of Mt. Etna. The manor stays true to its Sicilian roots, retaining stucco and lava-stone walls and an external lava-stone staircase that carries you up to the main living area. The interior, however, boasts beautiful Mediterranean-inspired minimalist design, with large open spaces, lovingly curated furnishings, and deft use of colorful accents. The villa is superbly located, being only 17 miles from Catania airport, a 20-minute drive from the dramatic coast of Acitrezza, and conveniently close to shopping areas, museums, markets, and archaeological sites.
The living room features a high vaulted fresco ceiling and is seamlessly adjoined to the dining area by a unique minimalist fireplace. The designer kitchen comes with a strikingly cool island and is situated between the dining area and a glass-walled terrace, allowing for both indoor and outdoor dining to be equally convenient. All 4 bedrooms include en suite bathrooms, while the master suite offers a view of the grounds and pool and a skylight for gazing up at the stars.
Outside, the expansive lawn features lava-stone cobbles, gorgeous conifers, and a dazzling large swimming pool. Flanking the pool is a modernist glass-screened pavilion, a perfect venue to entertain parties of guests or to simply relax and enjoy shelter from the sun, wind, or rain.
