Your own private luxury hideaway villa in Sicily

“Rocca delle Tre Contrade” is your own private luxury hideaway villa in Sicily, available for weekly rentals for groups of up to 24 people. Click here to receive more information about rentals.

‘Tre Contrade’ is a former wine farm and summer residence originally built around 1850 and then subsequently abandoned in the 1960s. After a long and meticulous restructuring by the current owners, it has returned to its former glory, a beautiful 12 bedroom property with uninterrupted views of the Mediterranean, Etna and the lush evergreen countryside.

The estate with its terraced grounds, today planted with lemon trees, is situated within the confines of the protected national park of Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano and a recent (2013) addition to Unesco’s world heritage sites, and only a few minutes from the nearest beaches.

‘Tre Contrade’ is available to rent exclusively through ‘The Thinking Traveller’ as a full-service property.  Our staff and your local The Thinking Traveller manager are at hand for any advice, assistance or support during your stay.

This is what some of our recent visitors have said about their stay with us:

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung:
The interiors exude an air of understatement, simple while elegant and not detracting from the villas true treasure: its generous and grand spaces. What fortune wouldn’t it be to invite your closest friends here, walk with them among fruit trees and welcome them to a candlelit aperitif on the terrace.”

Bombardier Experience:
Every room feels right out of Architectural Digest, from the en-suite bedrooms with their Frette linens, to the main lounge and its slender, sky-high Davide Groppi lamps and the retro touches like vintage posters and Tuscan sun loungers“.

Joseph Volpe/US (Stayed July 2014):
What did we most enjoy about visiting Sicily? The villa! The whole staff couldn’t have been better. The food was fabulous and the service was great too.

Tomas Jelf/UK (Stayed May 2014):
Our stay at Rocca delle Tre Contrada exceeded our expectations in every respect. The villa is simply stunning and much more expansive than the photos suggest. Maybe the biggest draw of all was the food, which was exceptional… Everyone in our group described it as one of their best holidays ever. And we all travel a lot.

Alessandro Catenacci/Sweden (Stayed July 2013):
“Definitely one of our best experiences ever. The wine, service and specially cooking was wonderful. We have already recommended the villa to friends and they have booked for next year.“.
