The
Experience

In an ancient landscape of stoney outcrops and grazing cattle the valley road curves round to the plain above, high and glorious with great views. There, at the end of a narrow lane, is the house, elegant in its simplicity, whiter than white with pale turquoise shutters. A large marble-topped table is protected by a gazebo, a striped hammock is slung between the trees, sleek loungers flank a big pool, and there’s a play area shaded by olives. Inside, all sparkles, from the sitting room with books, wood-burner and white leather sofa, to the well-equipped kitchen, the simple bedrooms and the bathroom with its great big shower. Civilisation is a seven-minute drive, but there’s no other dwelling in sight; this is a place for those who love silence. If you bring children, make sure they can swim; if not, the beach is a ten-minute drive. Few tourists make it to Sicily’s southernmost tip, and out of season you’ll have the place to yourselves. Come evening, head for Ragusa, a honey-coloured Renaissance marvel – or ethereal Noto, or glorious Modica.

Reviews

I have spent 10 delicious days in this villa at the beginning of May. The house is wonderful and completely silent and the owners could not have been more kind and helpful. It is less than one hour away from Catania airport and it's a perfect place to discover the treasures in the South of Sicily. Art, history, culture, food and wine, nature: Sicily has it all!

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Manager Simon Cronin

  • The Villa is perfectly located for exploring the Baroque jewel UNESCO World Heritage towns of Noto Siracusa, Scicli, Modica and Ragusa. The white sandy beaches with pristine Caribbean blue water are only a 10-minute drive.
  • Shops, bars & restaurants are 7 minutes away. Within 20-minutes drive there are two stunning Greek theatres and one Roman amphitheatre (the Romans filled it with water for real naval battles!)
  • The Villa is situated close to the entrance to the famous Cavagrande di Cassibile Nature Reserve with its beautiful freshwater lakes. Hundreds of flamingoes stop off in transit to Africa at the nearby Vendicari Nature Reserve.
  • If cooking and wine is your thing - visit the Ortigia food market for fresh fish and locally grown vegetables - where you'll walk away with bags of amazing produce for half of nothing!
  • Want to get out on the Med - Miami Vice style? Hire a boat for a day for about £120.
  • If the kids want a water park with huge slides there's the fantastic Etnaland or the volcano itself only forty minutes away. While you're there enjoy a typical country lunch with superb award winning wine at a Mt Etna vineyard run by two Sicilian brothers.
