About the villa

Extensive gardens, punctuated with scented jasmine and ancient olive trees, surround this enchanting former farmstead. The house and its adjacent watchtower date back to the late 16th century, and recent restoration has cleverly retained much of their original character, while adding fabulous facilities for a family holiday. Today, timber decking surrounds an inviting swimming pool, complete with hydro-massage, surrounded by lawns, and overlooked by a broad loggia with fully-equipped kitchen and sitting and dining areas.

A second swimming pool adjoins a charming courtyard, paved in local stone and comfortably furnished with cushioned rattan.  And within the house, exposed stonework, timber beams, and tiles from nearby Caltagirone set the scene for country-style rooms, furnished with elegant simplicity, where beds have prettily painted or wrought iron frames, and social spaces include two sitting rooms, two kitchens, a dining room and study. In Sicily’s south-east corner, the villa is 2km from the local shop and restaurant, just 8km from busy, baroque Modica, and 18km from sandy beaches.

About the area

Siracusa and Southern Sicily

Average weather

As one of the quieter destinations on the diverse island of Sicily, the south is home to some of the top, one and two Michellin star restaurants in the country. And it’s no wonder, with the abundance beautiful local produce available. As in all parts of Sicily, there is a contrast in landscape from the marshland of Vendicari to the rebuilt towns of Noto and Ragusa. Siracusa has a tradition in making puppets - buy one as a souvenir or visit the puppet theatre for some light entertainment. Or try out the range of restaurants, bars and tours for a relaxing evening with friends.
