About the villa
Golden Sands is a small house in Sicily that lives up to its name, set in a truly privileged spot with direct access to the wonderful Mediterranean Sea. This charming south facing beachfront cottage, an ideal retreat for two couples sharing or a small family, boasts panoramic terraces framed by a sandy garden of natural plants and a unique style of plunge pool from which to take in the endless sea views. The open-plan living and dining room, including a modern kitchenette, is enclosed by floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors with direct access to the beachfront terrace and the al fresco dining area.
With a rustic-chic décor, colour-washed walls, contemporary and wooden furnishings, this villa is inspired by the lines and colours of the island. Two double bedrooms, both with en suite shower rooms, complete the residence. The sea below the property is accessed by two short wooden ladders from the sandy terrace and a further wide sandy beach can be accessed by walking approximately 100m along the coast road to the rear of the property.

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.
