Just steps away from the water's edge, this villa is the perfect place for a Sicilian getaway. It ticks all the boxes – sun, sand, and sea – so you can enjoy the perfect vacation on this magical island.
The interior is bright and airy, with a crisp colour scheme and windows that bring in plenty of natural light. You'll especially love the dining area, with its ocean views – it's a brilliant spot to enjoy a lavish meal together. Slide open the patio doors, and you'll find a charming garden where you can soak up the sun on a lounger with your favourite holiday read in hand. And, best of all, you'll have your very own hot tub, for long soaks under the stars.
There is direct access to the sea from the rocky outcrop at the bottom of the garden when you fancy taking a refreshing dip. And, you can wander down to the sandy shoreline of Lido di Noto Beach in just two minutes. The historic city of Noto is only a twelve-minute drive away, so culture fans can visit the impressive cathedral before dining in one of the local restaurants.
Encompassing the south-eastern third of Sicily, Val di Noto is one of the three historic regions of the island. Many of the region’s towns were destroyed during an earthquake in 1693, meaning that they were rebuilt in the Baroque style they have since become famous for.
There are eight UNESCO-listed towns in Val di Noto, including Modica, Scicli and Catania, the second-largest city on Sicily. Although each town has its own distinct character and local history, you’re sure to find excellent wine, food and architecture in all of them.
Grab a scoop of gelato and stroll through the streets, ducking into churches and museums as you go, or sip an espresso at a café and watch the world go by. If you head out of the city, you can discover hiking trails through Val di Noto’s pine forests, woodlands and dry volcanic deserts shaped by Mount Etna.
And don’t forget to visit some of the beaches too – Marina di Ragusa has golden sands and a lively nightlife scene, while Sampieri is a quiet, unspoilt stretch of shoreline.
