Villa with swimming pool
on the island of Favignana
Contemporary in concept, but inspired by the island’s traditional architecture, Villa Aegusa lies in extensive grounds bounded by ancient drystone tufa walls. The garden, with cactus rockeries and recently planted trees, extends for 15,000 square metres. It has been designed with several distinct areas: there is a sunken dining and barbeque area, a lazing zone and a small but exquisite swimming pool built of local tufa. And in case that’s not enough, there is also a roof terrace with splendid views over the island to the sea and mainland Sicily
It consists of two Modernist cuboids with huge windows, linked by a roofed and furnished patio which forms an elegant outdoor salone, perfect for evening drinks or candlelit dinners.
The first building houses the kitchen, a living area with fireplace, and the master bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The second unit holds another pleasant living room with open kitchen, and two bedrooms, one double, one twin, each with ensuite bathroom.

The way the minimalist design of the villa suits Favignana perfectly — reflecting the indigenous architecture and the spareness of the horizontal landscape.
The outdoor salone between the two buildings — shady in the middle of the day, protected at night — you could even sit there having a drink watching a fantastic thunderstorm over the sea.
Those sail canopies erected by the owners over the pool and the barbeque-dining zone — not only stylish, but essential in the heat!
Cycling or walking along the island’s flat white roads — to the bustling little port town and to magical beaches like Cala Azzurra and Cala Rossa — especially in the early evening, when the colours are at their most intense.
Buying freshly-caught local tuna to grill on the barbeque.
Because each unit is self contained, with its own living area, bedroom(s) and kitchen, we think it is perfect for three generations of a family (grandparents in the first building, children and grandchildren in the second) or for parents (in the first building) travelling with older children and their friends (in the second). It would also suit a group of adult friends.
