This has been a family holiday home for several years. A really enchanting and sophisticated place. Lots of memories to cherish for the whole family, playing in the rock pools and waterfalls, relaxing on the beach, exploring the ancient ruins in the hills, coastal walks in the nature reserve nearby and regular trips into Noto for an ice cream. You will the find the house much more of a home than just a holiday rental.
Katia purchased this Villa in 2003
Why Katia chose Noto
A very good freind of ours recommended buying a property around Noto in Sicily. He is an imaginative and wise person and we immediately fell in love with the region. Noto is very unspoilt whilst still being a very sophisticated city. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and the beaches out of this world. The Sicilians are incredibly kind and freindly. Our children really love their holidays there as do we.
What makes this Villa unique
Quiet calm location that is only 2.5 km from a world heritage city Noto where you can eat the most wonderful Italian food. Noto is also home to one of the top ten gelatarias in the world, Cafe Sicilia, as described by the New York Times. We have a great river to cool down in and from our house you can enjoy the most amazing walks and discover waterfalls and streams along the way. The house is comfortable and has been designed as a comfortable yet authentic Sicilian country home.

Stunningly beautiful, Amazing accommodation
Altogether there were 8 of us that visited Sicily and stayed in this beautifully contemporarily styled property. My wife and I have three boys and we found the property to be child friendly and beautifully styled, it didn't once feel overcrowded. The rooms were airy and cool and the two bathrooms meant that know one was waiting for the shower or toilet. Although we were tucked away in the stunning hilltops of Sicily we were only a 5 minutes drive to the historic town and 20 minutes away from the beaches. I can't recommend this place enough! Already planning our next holiday here!
My Perfect Stay in Noto
"I have had the great pleasure of staying in Il Mulino twice, and am sure I will be back.
The house is set just outside the new town of Noto, with its wide cobblestone boulevards where elderly couples in their Sunday best stroll arm in arm and smile as you sip your expresso and eat the delicious gelatti. The old town is a must see, with ancient catacombs and vegetation amidst the ruins. On one memorable visit we picked fresh marjoram and oregano from the side of the path on the walk home and made a delicious pasta for dinner.
The house itself is set in a stunning valley, with olive and lemon groves covering the slopes. A cool brook offers some respite from the summer sun, and not too far away there is a magical waterway that leads to waterfalls and a deep fresh pool towards the top of the valley.
There are beaches and national parks closeby, and the location on Sicily's east coast offers the ease of holiday perks for families and couples, with the added charm of new discoveries in a rural Sicilian setting."
A really enchanting and sophisticated place.
Wonderful. Lots of memories to cherish for the whole family, playing in the rock pools and waterfalls, relaxing on the beach, exploring the ancient ruins in the hills, coastal walks in the nature reserve nearby and regular trips into Noto for an ice cream. We will be back for more!
Private and tranquil villa with stunning views
We had a wonderful stay at this peaceful and beautifully maintained villa. Stunning views from the terrace over the lemon groves. The house suits a family, we stayed with friends and had 4 young children between us. We really enjoyed local walks up to Noto Antica or along the nearby river. Noto is a short drive away, where there is lots to see and do, plus great restaurants. Day trips to surrounding beaches also a must! A treasure of a place, we are planning our next visit soon.
Some space quite special
Not an overly sophisticated space but it is simply a pleasure to be in this house.
Our family (2 couples and three children) have stayed in this house on two occasions now. Once over Easter and once in the Summer. We have travelled Sicily and Italy a lot and it is safe to say we had one of the most pleasurable times at this house which is why we returned.
It is close enough to Noto and the beaches to feel accessible to all the amenities and sights of the area. Yet when at the house the natural beauty and unique position of this house make you feel so relaxed and at ease you just want to soak up the environment. We heard it is called 'The Valley of the Gods' and you can see why.
It has a beautiful river at the bottom which makes for a comfortable small plunge pool, great for young kids to splash about in or for a small dip to cool off. Walk further up the Valley and you can continue to explore the river too deep into the mountainside (a must for adventuresome families).
For a relaxing family holiday, this is a uniquely unspoilt spot
A perfect family retreat!
Superb facilities for a big family, house was clean and well maintained. Enjoyed cooking in the kitchen, and al fresco dining in the morning with breathtaking scenery surrounding us. Loved the river!! Swam in the water there and also really appreciated how easy it was to get to very beautiful beaches nearby, when the mood took us. Will be returning. Thank you for a wonderful stay and thank you for super helpful hospitality!
