The garden of Villa Fontana Sicilia
The garden of Villa Fontana Trapani







From the early nineteenth century, the Dimora Storica Villa Fontana became the residence of the landowners of the surrounding areas, and they dedicated part of their estate (about 10000 square metres) to becoming an ornamental garden which the family could enjoy. Thus was born the garden that surrounds our residence, an ancient botanical park where it is possible to observe many of the native species of our region.


Beaucarnea Recurvata (Piede di Elefante)
Beaucarnearecurvata (Piede di Elefante)
Among the oldest trees in our park there are two examples of the Ponytail Palm that are over 150 years old. These give an exotic touch to the landscape to observe while sipping a drink by the pool.


Pinea Pine
Pinus Pinea
After an excursion or a day at the beach, what could be better than an invigorating walk along the path, in the shade of our centenary pines, with the late afternoon breeze moving the leaves?


Several varieties of palm trees stand out in our park and they seem to dance in the sirocco wind.


Cercis Siliquastrum (Albero di Giuda)
Cercis Siliquastrum (Albero di Giuda)
One of our open spaces is surrounded by these trees, which have very opaque foliage, light and slender trunks and, in the month of May, you feel as if you are covered by a pink sky.


Buxus Sempervirens (Bossi)
Buxus Sempervirens (Bossi)
Boxwood plants are present in the form of hedges in many of the historic Italian gardens. These are slow-growing plants that take decades to model into the typical maze or path shape they are usually found in. A walk in maze of Theseus and Ariadne.


Did you know that Cycas reproduce by producing bulbs from their trunk which then become plants? They remain attached to the mother's trunk until they are ready to live on the ground, or until they are detached, like mothers and children. the Cycas in our garden are all sisters, daughters of a mother who is about 150 years old and who still grows her children on her trunk in our park.


It is a plant that is often used to form hedges, while in our park there are some large trees. One in particular is found at the entrance to the garden and in spring the white bouquets that cover it emanate a perfume that invades the atrium of the Villa. This, for us, is the scent of Villa Fontana.


Olive tree
The olive tree is native to Sicily. Today the olive trunks in our park are marvelous sculptures.


it is a not very widespread and rare species with dark blue flowers collected in dense hemispherical umbrellas that bloom in early autumn.


Strelitzia Reginae (Uccello del paradiso)
trelitzia Reginae
An ornamental plant of African origin, now typical of the Mediterranean areas. Its flower resembles the feathers of a wonderful exotic bird.
