Luxury Villa with private swimming pool, set in enchanting countryside above the acclaimed UNESCO Heritage city of Noto .
A restored Sicilian farmhouse, the villa sits on a site of antiquity, its charm lying in the combination of ancient and modern. Refurbished respecting the local architecture and using traditional materials, it is styled accordingly. Typically thick walls and high ceilings keep the villa naturally cool and fresh. There is a beautiful covered veranda with an outside dining area adjacent to the kitchen. The pool and garden blend sympathetically into the native landscape and gorgeous views over the surrounding hills complete the rural idyll.
Chill on the verandas or stroll in the grounds of the 3 hectare estate stopping to relax in the shade of an old olive or carob tree.
While this country retreat makes for complete relaxation in itself, the surrounding area also has much to offer: Walkers will love the footpaths marked out around the ruins of Noto Antica and spectacular Cava Grande Nature Reserve where you can hike and ultimately swim in the natural pools and gorges shaped into the rock by the water. Golfers will welcome the opportunity to play at I Monasteri Golf Club only 20 minutes away. Foodies should head for the colourful fishing village of Marzamemi. And then there are the beaches, including those around the wildlife oasis of Vendicari, on which the Bay of Noto’s reputation as a seaside resort is founded.
This villa has something for everyone and can even accommodate extended family if required. A separate annex is exclusively available to guests renting the main house if arranged with the owner at time of booking (please contact owner for details in the first instance).
