  • Villa Almerita in Palermo


The history

The Liberty Style, also known as Art Nouveau, was a popular architectural and decorative style that emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Palermo, the capital city of the Italian island of Sicily, has a rich history of Liberty Style architecture. Visitors to Palermo can admire the city’s Liberty Style architecture looking at the Teatro Massimo, the Palazzo dei Normanni, also known as the Royal Palace, Villa Trabia, Palazzo Sant’Elia, and the Palazzina Cinese. In the same style that showcases the intricate decorative details and flowing lines, Villa Almerita was built in Mondello at the beginning of the 1900’s.


This exquisite villa reflects the owner’s desire to offer guests a high sense of welcome. The spaces were renovated with respect to the past and are functional, elegant, and comfortable. The preserved Liberty architectural details are everywhere, from the flower motifs, ceramic tiles design, the iron handrail of the stairs, the moldings, and stuccoes, to the colored glass windows. The major idea behind this style was to maximize the use of natural light, incorporating large windows, skylights, and other features to create bright, airy interiors – at Almerita, natural light floods the well-appointed living room, the adjacent dining area and even the kitchen.


The villa is set in a beautiful, manicured garden shadowed by ancient big Mediterranean trees – shaded areas that are a blessing during the hot summer hours. The private pool enjoys a sunny position and has steps for easy access. A panoramic outdoor dining table is set on the terrace of the villa for candle-lit Sicilian dinners al fresco.

The villa is perfect for sea lovers and those who enjoy embracing the local culture. Mondello offers a wide range of activities and attractions, from water sports to restaurants and local flair. After all the hustle and bustle, it’s important to take some time to relax and recharge and Villa Raggiosa is there for you: find a quiet spot to read a book, meditate or just enjoy the view.
