Gorgeous property in a beautiful part of the world. Would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Hands down the best villa we have stayed in. It is so much bigger than we expected. There were 10 of us and if we wanted to find someone, we actually had to hunt for them because the place was so big! Completely separate living area and bedrooms downstairs which is a bonus when there are two families. Just lots of great spaces indoors and outdoors. The kitchen was supplied with all the appliances we needed. You could probably eat in a different part of the villa every night if you wanted to! 3 dining areas throughout the villa and lots of areas to eat outside. The BBQ was fabulous. The outdoor space was enormous and very pretty. There is a lemon tree which was great for the gin and tonics! The pool is brilliant. It is much bigger than we expected. It has a dining area next to it. Ample sun loungers. The pool house is great too - fridge and freezer and another living area together with a shower and toilet. It is great if you plan to set yourself up by the pool for the day. If you want to go exploring however, there is so much to see. 10 minutes away is the old town of modica which is very pretty and boasts some lovely restaurants. Syracuse is approx an hour away and well worth the visit. Noto is under an hour away and is a very pretty place. Also recommend Ragusa. If you like wine tasting, there are plenty of places to go. Andrea, the owner, is extremely friendly and helpful and will recommend places to go and he is more than happy to book restaurants for you. A really nice person. All in all, I cannot recommend this villa and the area enough!

Fantastic villa with large pool

  • 5 of 5

This villa is huge but the pool house is the real winner. We spent every day down there and as it has its own kitchen we just filled the fridge with food and drink and spent every day down there. Then we spent the evenings in Corsa Umberto in Modica which is part of the old town with many restaurants.

The grounds are a lovely place to spend a holiday and although the house has 6 double bedrooms we rented it even though there were just 5 of us as it is so stunning.

Very clean, homely yet modern

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, large villa with loads of features. Villa split over 2 floors, which can be used individually or together. All modern features throughout. The real winner was the poolhouse. It has a separate kitchen and living area, as well as modern shower and toilet. Indoor/outdoor eating just outside the kitchen. We de-camped to the poolhouse for very relaxing days. Andrea met us on arrival and couldn't have been more helpful throughout our stay - even booked us into a local restaurant when we got there. Great location for exploring Sicily - would definitely book again.

Totally Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

On first arrival we met Andrea who gave us a full tour of the Villa and showed us how everything worked. We felt very welcomed and this allowed us to quickly settle into our holiday.

Andrea was also kind enough to provide Prosecco on arrival as it was my partners birthday. (thanks again!)

We were provided with great recommendations on local restaurants and all the best sites to see.

We'd all highly recommend this villa to you for your next holiday.

Perfect for a large family

  • 5 of 5

This house and it’s host offered our large family the most enjoyable and

wonderful holiday we could ever imagine. The beautiful garden and the

giant house gave the young, the parents and the grandparents lots of

loud fun, relaxing, quite reading time, big splashes in the pool and

snoozes in the shade. The whole compound, the house and the many

beautiful corners of the garden made us spend more days than planed just

enjoying the surroundings. This even though there is lots of beautiful

beaches and country side to discover. Not to mention all the Unesco

preserved towns.

The house is fully equipped and very well designed for a large group. We

shared some magical evenings with barbeques in the garden gazing at the

stars. We are most thankful to our host Andreas recommending many

restaurant and spots to visit. We will never forget the local rural

restaurant. We loved the traditional dishes with the homemade ricotta

and mozzarella cheese.

But what really took us by surprise was the helpfulness from Andrea,

when our eight year old got really sick. With Andreas as our personal

interpreter we got the most dedicated service and a quick recovery.

Thank you!
