A lush oasis of natural beauty, exotic vegetation and luxurious living
Villa Cecilia Trabia is located on the Sicilian coast between Palermo and Cefalù. The villa has an exceptional location, being only 50 metres away from the sea. From the villa there is direct access to the beach and a small tourist port. It is the ideal location to explore the natural landscape and charming cities of Sicily.
This luxury villa is cocooned in lush vegetation, and the natural beauty is astonishing with a botanical garden that has both tropical and Mediterranean plants and a very large loquat tree garden. Several lines of exotic palm trees surround a beautiful complex of three pools and two waterfalls.
The outdoor area is highlighted by the pool area, which is also child-friendly as there is a kids’ pool that can be heated on request. All the areas are designed to offer the best relaxation time and ensure guests feel pampered with the ultimate luxury. All guests can find their favourite relaxation spot, be it the Jacuzzi pool, soaking up some Mediterranean sun on the pool loungers, sipping some refreshing cocktails on the terrace and spacious gazebo or simply admiring the big carps and water plants in the fish pond.
Next to the main pool, there is an outdoor shaded kitchen which is ideal for enjoying delicious meals right next to the pool. Furthermore, guests can find other recreation areas such as the large terraces that overlook the garden or just outside their own bedrooms on the private balconies that boast sweeping sea views.
There are four independent villas within Cecilia Trabia, creating an ideal setting for large families or group of friends to travel together while still enjoying the privacy of their own luxurious holiday home. Villa Principale is the main house featuring five bedrooms, a grand living room with a piano and stunning roof gardens with sea views. A few metres away from the pool complex, there is the two-bedroom Villa Glicine, Villa Primula with other two bedrooms, and another smaller one-bedroom villa built in a studio style suitable for a couple.
Guests will have an unforgettable stay with all their needs taken care of by the team of dedicated staff who can be available upon request. It is possible to arrange a wide range of services, including a private chef, home-style food service, grocery shopping, nanny service, airport transfers, water sports, the organisation of a special celebration, or tours to explore the nearby historical highlights on the island.

Cecilia Trabia is situated right by the seaside, being only 50 metres away from the sea. It is just outside the village of Trabia.
Trabia is a village located on the coast, 34 km east of Palermo, on the sea route 113 that goes to Cefalù and Messina.
Within proximity there are former buildings of the tuna fisheries from the 16th century and also a small tourist port. The main house is surrounded by an ancient loquat garden known as “Big Garden of Principi Lanza di Trabia;” the Lanza family being one of the most important aristocratic families in Sicily. Their Castle, built in the 10th century on sea rocks, is only 200 m from Villa Cecilia and can be visited on request.
The villa is conveniently located for cultural/artistic tours in western Sicily (tours can be organised by the concierge team). Sicily is proud to be the Italian region with the highest number of UNESCO cultural sites (9 out of the 51 Italian sites are in Sicily).
The UNESCO cultural site is dominated by Arab-Norman Palermo and the cathedral churches of Cefalù and Monreale, which are 40 mins driving distance away, and six other UNESCO cultural and natural sites in Sicily are within 1h 30min - 2h 30min reach.
Trabia is also recognised as the birthplace of pasta. The production of pasta in this village was first mentioned in a historical document describing the discovery made by the Arab geographer Al-Idrisi in 1150 AD.
