Perla Nera

Traditional villa with pool and garden

Viagrande (East Sicily)



  • Aristocratic Estate
  • Hydrojet
  • Mediterranean Garden
  • Great Outdoor Space
  • Traditional Style
  • Walk to Town

Antique-filled aristocratic Sicilian residence with extraordinary gardens and pool area. Approximately 20 minutes’ drive from Catania Airport, with a spacious interior, Perla Nera is an excellent villa for groups and special celebrations.

The villa is on the south side of Mount Etna on Sicily’s east coast. Dating back to the early 1500s, Perla Nera is unquestionably reminiscent of another age, with exquisite gardens scattered with stone statues and hidden nooks and crannies, and inside, the original wine press and an astonishing collection of antique furniture.


Ancient roses, jasmine and camellias weave their way around faded stone columns and walls, ornamental hedges frame tree-filled manicured lawns and the fragrance of flowers and plants fills the air.

The pièce de résistance, however, is undoubtedly the pool, fringed with towering palms and built with black lava stone resulting in inky-blue waters. The pool also has a hydrojet for an extra touch of luxury. Alongside the swimming pool is a changing room with bathroom.

A wonderful barbecue area is found surrounded by atmospheric plants and sculptures whilst a beautiful outdoor dining area is on the patio outside the main villa, creating the perfect spot for al fresco meals. Two vast conservatories, dotted with large planters containing citrus trees are also found in the garden.


This is traditional Sicily at its best: painted wooden bed frames and imposing wardrobes preside in the bedrooms, magnificent carved dressers and ornamental tables are distributed throughout the villa, and an atmosphere of historic elegance reigns throughout the house.

Perla Nera has a grand entrance hall, furnished in a wonderful traditional Sicilian style. Elegant chairs surround a colourful fireplace creating a formal sitting area. Next to this is the estate's original wine press, now transformed into a sitting room with a small dining table. Turning the corner you enter a large corridor, with antique sofas lining the wall. From this corridor you can access a pretty dining room which leads on to the traditional and colourful Sicilian kitchen, both of which have direct access to the garden.

A lovely reading room gives access to the ground floor bedrooms. One beautiful double bedroom has an adjacent bathroom. The other two bedrooms are adjoining (accessible only via the reading room or the dining room), and both have ensuite bathrooms.

A staircase is found near the reading room, leading up to the two double bedrooms on the upper attic floor, both of which have ensuite bathrooms.

For more than 10 guests, a guest house on the property is available for up to four extra guests, with one double and one twin bedroom. The twin bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom whilst the double room has an adjoining bathroom close by. There is also a living room and fitted kitchenette.
