Restored stone farmhouse with pool
and panoramic views
Located on the north coast of Sicily, Il Carrubo takes its name from the estate of carob trees that once surrounded the villa – today, one glorious specimen remains, providing shade, in time – honoured Sicilian fashion – in the eastern part of the garden.

The rest of the garden has been cleared – apart from the occasional ancient olive tree – to reveal fantastic sea views that stretch from the promontory of Capo Calavà to the Aeolian Islands.
There is a lovely green lawn, an intense blue bean-shaped pool, with a relaxing sun-bathing area around it.
The villa is long, making the most of the views over the lawn and pool and sea.
The ground floor consists large living room with fireplace, two bedrooms, a comfortable kitchen and a further bedroom on the side of the house, with an independent entrance.
Upstairs there is a fourth bedrooom with a little studio (space for two single sofa beds) and a private terrace.
All rooms are doubles, with private bathrooms and direct access to the garden.
A lovely furnished portico provides an outdoor living-dining room – with wood-burning oven and barbeque for al fresco cooking!
two different groups of friends can also rent Il Piccolo Casale a short distance from Carrubo.
4 double bedrooms, of which two can be converted into twins. Each has a private bathroom and direct access to the garden.
Large living room with fireplace and dining area
Barbecue Wood burning oven
Having a drink in the shade of an ancient olive or carob tree admiring the splendid view. Making pizza in the wood-burning oven.
Grilling local fish on the barbecue.
Days on the beaches at Acquedolci or Capo d’Orlando.
Day trips to see Cefalù, Tindari, the Nebrodi mountains and the Marinella coastal nature reserve.
A boat trip to the Aeolian Islands. A cooking lesson in the with a well-known Sicilian chef.
Il Carrubo is an easy villa to stay in – and given that it is just 5 minutes’ drive from a beach, we think it is ideal for families with children.
Two different groups of friends can also rent Il Piccolo Casale a short distance from Carrubo.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our time at the villa! It’s a magnificent location – we’ve been able to visit many of the local attractions and beaches, and the accommodation is superb.
All the best, and thank you for all your assistance.
