Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Located in the tranquillity of the Sicilian countryside, this villa is perfect for those wanting to get away from everything for a while. With a large fenced garden and your own private pool, outdoor shower and kitchen, and alfresco dining area, you'll easily spend just as much time outside as you will inside. Whether you're cuddling up in front of the fireplace, getting some last-minute work done remotely at the dining table or heading out to work on your tan on the sun loungers, you can rest assured you'll be able to make the most of your holiday during your stay here. Try your hand at homemade pizza in the outdoor kitchen, while the kids play on the grass among the lush greenery. In the evening, gather everyone in the living room in front of the cosy fireplace for a movie night as the sun sets. Tranquil and practical, this home means you're only a short walk from Santa Maria del Focallo beach, where you can walk the golden sands surrounded by pine forests and clear blue waters. It's a quiet beach, making it perfect for a romantic sunset or a family day out, without having to get the car ready beforehand. You'll find it an easy drive into some of the most beautiful cities of south-eastern Sicily, including Noto, Syracuse and Ragusa Ibla. Pick up some necessities, or explore the cities and their local cuisine at fantastic restaurants. Listen to some live music at a bar or sip an alfresco coffee under the Italian sun and feel like a local. There are plenty of cultural and historical hotspots for you to explore in the cities, from cathedrals and ancient religious sites to palaces and gardens. Whether you're looking for some retail therapy and good food, or you want to explore ancient ruins and learn something new, this home is the perfect starting point for your adventure.
