Perched on a hillside overlooking rolling olive groves not far from the Sicilian coast, it's no surprise that the views here are absolutely idyllic. Morning, afternoon or night, the garden is where you'll spend most of your time. Help yourself to fruit and vegetables grown in the garden, take a refreshing dip in the sparkling pool and dine together under the pergola in the fresh air. Come evening, grab a glass of wine and make for the balcony, where you can watch as the sun sets on the horizon, purple and pink hues painted in the sky. The house was built with pale local stone, and inside, the uncluttered spaces and neutral colour palette reflect that pared-back style. Crisp white walls, glossy finishes and rooms bathed in light create a relaxing haven that's the perfect respite from the sun. Just fifteen minutes away by car is Noto, a baroque town known for its UNESCO World Hertigate-status cathedral. Spend the afternoon wandering down the cafe-lined streets, seeking out local eateries and independent shops. You're also a fifteen-minute drive from Spiaggia della Loggia in Avola when you crave a beach day, while Syracuse is reachable in under an hour – perfect for a day trip.

Encompassing the south-eastern third of Sicily, Val di Noto is one of the three historic regions of the island.
