Sicilian splendour

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a fantastic stay in Sicily at Calcicera Alta. The property was exactly as expected - high quality furniture and fittings inside and the most amazing terrace and separate pool area outside. A remote location for some, but the fantastic view and being only 30 mins away from fantastic beaches and the regional centre of Noto more than make up for this. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here if you are visiting the region.

Serenity getaway

  • 4 of 5
Little can I say to convey the serenity one feels staying at this beautiful country house. Generous inside out is the perfect get away. Ample space to sleep, expand, isolate or connect. Beautiful views, lavender smells, balance everywhere. Tom was a real pleasure to communicate with, always responsive with detailed guidelines and great suggestions on where to go eat and drink. A GPS would be most helpful especially if arriving at night. One of the few places I would return back to. Thank you so much for sharing!

Little bit of paradise in Sicily

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this beautiful house overlooking the Vendicari Nature Reserve in Sicily. It is comfortable and spacious, with everything that is needed for a relaxing holiday in the sunshine. Amazing view and large swimming pool, kids loved every minute. Difficult access on farm road, but worth following directions to this little piece of rural paradise! Property was very clean and well maintained. Owner was more than helpful and generous with everything at the property, even including pool toys. I would highly recommend to friends. Good place from which to explore ancient sites and fabulous markets of Syracuse for fresh produce. Highly recommended.
