- About The Experience
The Mediterranean island of Sicily is one of Italy’s most beautiful destinations, and in this large villa on the south of the island, over two dozen guests can enjoy all that Sicily has to offer. Surrounded by nature, the villa is a relaxing retreat for a large group, and nearly all rooms have ensuite bathrooms (many have kitchenettes!) for added privacy. There’s a private pool, and a unique, indoor/outdoor common area that can accommodate up to 26 of your family members or large group of friends.
- Location Description
This property is located in the south of Sicily, inside a nature park of over 20 hectares filled with olive, carob and almond trees. 12 kilometers away, the coastal resort of Marina di Ragusa offers beautiful beaches and exceptional nightlife. Be sure to visit the towns on the nearby Val di Noto, a limestone plateau whose cities feature exquisite Sicilian Baroque architecture – eight of the towns have been listed by UNESCO as world heritage sites! Scicli, Ragusa Ibla, Modica, and Noto are all well worth exploring.
Other sites include Syracuse, Castello di Donnafugata, and the lakes of river Cavagrande

- Exterior Description
This ancient residence dates back to the end of the 1600s and has been recently renovated. The villa is comprised of the ancient stone building where the bedrooms are located, and the communal annex, which has large transparent plastic curtains that can be opened to enjoy the summer months. There is a solarium, as well as a large private pool (10 X 12 m) heated by solar energy, which is surrounded by palm trees and oleander plants.

The caretaker lives in a separate wing of the house and does not share living areas with the guests, and can prepare breakfasts upon request.
