Discovering Casa del Poeta
In the nineteenth century Villa Grimaldi, today Casa del Poeta, the homonymous aristocratic family ennese spent part of the summer. The stone building is a few km from Enna and a few hundred meters from Lake Pergusa, linked to the myth of the Rape of Proserpine, and reflects the architectural style of the houses in Sicily: high ceilings, generous rooms, a cellar dug into the rock, around a lot of green and embellished pairs of majestic cypress trees.
Today the villa has changed its face, becoming a home for poets, artists and sophisticated travelers.
The nineteen-century house has been entirely restored though maintaining intact its original charm and structure. The interior decoration is sober, elegant and strongly contemporary. The chosen colours are white and damson. The furnishings have been designed with the aim of creating a place that revolves around books.
Four functional rooms with private bathrooms and parquet floors, for a total of 17 beds. The rooms are located in two areas: "The house to write" and "The house to read."
