Comprising three separate buildings, this villa is perfect for those who like their privacy when staying in a group. The outside space was our favourite feature of this home – expect views of the countryside and Mount Etna from the private hot tub and swimming pool, as well as a dining terrace for meals in the sunshine. Location-wise, the home is within easy driving distance of Sortino and less than an hour from the coast and the historic city of Syracuse.

Home truths

    Due to the location of this home, we recommend hiring a car for ease of getting around.

    The swimming pool (open from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October) isn't fenced. If you're bringing little ones, they'll need to be supervised at all times. Your host can also provide a cot and high chair upon request.
