About this home

This is the place you dream of discovering when coming to Sicily, a place for tradition lovers and connoisseurs, where you can taste the simple and charming life of an enchanted past. Villa Molinum is an authentically restored miller's house, drenched in history and nestled in 4 hectares of unspoiled nature. A still working mill, an always-fresh creek at 20 meters from the house and a private pool complete the idyllic picture.


A curvy country road bordered with low white walls leads to Villa Molinum. The villa consists of a white main building of 150 m2 and a pink dépendance of 40 m2. The entrance to both units is a green patio overlooking a forest and the creek, where you might even spot one of the owner’s horses running freely.



The main building has four eclectically elegant double bedrooms and two luxury bathrooms, one for each floor. A spacious dining room with a well-equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher) will be the perfect frame for all your dinners, unless you cannot get enough of the stunning views of the surroundings and you prefer to enjoy your meal outdoor. The dépendance consists of a double bedroom and a bathroom, and it can be a romantic hideout for a couple that wants even more privacy. There is a brand new bathroom and a changing room next to the pool.



A fireplace stove in the main building and a wood stove in the dépendance will make your stay in winter warm and cosy. The thick walls of both units will not allow you to sweat while inside, not even in August.



It would be really difficult to ask for more. And yet, here it is possible. You can, for example, go trekking in the bordering Hyblean Mountains, request a horse ride together with the owner, or a dinner cooked with local and organic products. Moreover, at a very short drive or at 20 minutes on foot you can reach the town of Palazzolo Acreide, one of the most stunning Baroque towns of Sicily and Unesco Heritage since 2002, featuring gorgeous churches and an ancient Greek amphitheater. The local delicacies are salami and bread made in all different ways given the miller’s tradition of the area, but you will delighted by wine and artisanal beers too. And do not miss a visit to Corsino, the oldest patisserie in town! Finally, Syracuse, sandy beaches and on the other side Mount Etna are at only 40 km.



In short, Villa Molinum is where authentic features, modern comforts, superb surroundings and a strategic location unite to create a dreamlike atmosphere and let you live a holiday of wonder.



Villa Molinum has WiFi!

    Amazing secret gem - must stay!

    We spent a week in this idyllic house. We had 5 adults and 1 three year old and everyone loved their stay. The house: Absolutely stunning, with plenty of space for even a larger group. Totally tranquil surrounded by nature - you listen to the waterfall cascading down while sitting out in the enclosed upper garden (perfect with an active little one). It was warm when we stayed, but the house remained cool and pleasant all day and a comfortable temperature for sleeping. The pool: Is a great mix of shallows for the little one and nice for swimming and lounging or cooling off while you sunbathe in the comfortable loungers. There is a shower, toilet and fridge by the pool so perfect to let you spend all day down there. The grounds are stunning with aquaducts running around the terraces leaving a lush green garden with orchards and herbs. Everything smells lovely. The town is just the right size, with amazing local produce (we went to the local fishmonger and cooked the best tuna I've ever eaten one night) and plenty of restaurants and shops. I cannot recommend it enough!!

    Incredibile ! fantastico !

    Amazing and very unique place!! An old water mill estate restored, decorated and re-furnished with lots of taste to create a unique and genuine atmosphere! The owners (Rossella and Mario) are wonderful hosts, very friendly! They will do everything to welcome you and make you feel at home, they became like family to us! The house is super clean, they can provide cleaning services throughout your stay, organize meals (from breakfast to dinners) with prime products from the area of Palazzolo Acreide so that you can discover the best of this Eastern part of Sicily! Rossella really knows how to receive guests, it truly is a "family home" where you feel you have spent all your life and holidays! Incredible hospitality! We also met Sandrine, who helps them to take care of the place, she is fantastic and sweet as well! We really felt home (and even better!)! Staying there and meeting them were a wonderful experience! We are already looking forward to travel back to Palazzolo Acreide! A warm thank you to our hosts!
