Elegant villa with swimming pool close to beautiful historical and natural beauties
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Even more spacious than the photos suggest. Pool is long enough to swim in with plenty of space around it to sit in the sun on the loungers, the chairs and table, or the hammock. Lots of covered space for shade / in the evening with several tables and chairs, the largest of which sits 8 for a meal.

Galley kitchen is well suited for holiday meals. Inside lounge is comfortable if you've had enough of being outside.

Everything immaculately clean.

Food and wine there on arrival was a nice touch.

Owner was very helpful in providing advice on things to do.

If we go back to Sicily we'll definitely go back here.

Fantastic holiday - Thank you so much

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the villa and were stunned by its beauty and the peaceful surroundings. Our gracious hosts met us and showed us around with instructions on how to use the kitchen gadgets. We were delighted with the villa, which is much nicer and more luxurious than the pictures show. Four large bedrooms housed our family incredibly well along with the inclusion of cot and high chair for our granddaughter.

The garden is gorgeous with lemon, lime, fig and olive trees and it was a joy to watch the swallows swooping and coming down to the pool in the evenings for a drink. Dragon flies and damson flies were abundant and beautiful and certainly no bother - it was lovely to watch them.

Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and they certainly went above and beyond to ensure our stay was enjoyable and that we lacked for nothing.

I would highly recommend this beautiful villa and we would love to return one day.

Thank you to our hosts - we are very grateful for all your assistance.

Una Villa meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

Una Villa con il colore del sole. Pulita, comodo con una piscina stupenda. Gli dettagli sono fatti con gli occhi di una artista. La Villa è molto moderna che anche mantiene il cuore Siciliano.Siamo stati sei adulti per otto notte. Io sono viaggiato molte volte in Italia e anche la bella Sicilia. Questa casa è stata la più bella. Devo dire al Gaspare e la sua mamma Maria una grazie grande fra noi e sperò di ritornare. A dopo. Arrivederci Nicola (Nick) e compagni.

A lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our stay in the Seccagrande villa. The property is as beautiful as the photos show and in pristine condition. The house was very well equipped and the accommodations were excellent for our large group (six adults). Our hosts were extremely helpful, responsive and gracious-- they were very welcoming and made our stay even more special.

Little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful in every detail. in fact the photos don't do it justice, the surrounding gardens, the lovely architectural features and the attention to detail make this a high end piece of heaven.

The wonderful welcome on arrival from owners and gifts of baskets with local produce, makes you feel truly welcome. the tasteful décor has been well thought out and has everything you could need. We planned to use this as a base for exploring and found we just didn't want to leave, a truly wonderful relaxing place to stay. already planning to return next year.

Top Quality Villa

  • 5 of 5

This house is presented and managed to the highest standards. Probably the best I have rented over 25 years. The owners went out of their way to welcome and support our visit, attentive, responsive and friendly. The pool is large, the gardens immaculate and the rooms air conditioned and beautifully furnished.

The location is private and you will need a car. It's close to the archaeological sites of Selinunte, Agrigento and Eraclea Minoa and great beaches along the coast. Easy access to Ribera & Sciacca for shops / restautants & inland for the rugged Scicilian countryside. Highly recommended and my thanks to La Famiglia Noto.

The villa is located in Ribera, a nice village which rises on a wide hill nearby Agrigento and famous for its international oranges production, so that it is known as “City of oranges” all over Europe.

Ribera is surrounded by gorgeous, uncontaminated and also unknown beach places; their long, white, sandy beaches will take your breath away! Some of them are natural reserves thanks to their beauty and their wildlife conservation.

One of the most beautiful is “Foce del Fiume Platani”, a protected area between Borgo Bonsignore and Capo Bianco, whose calcareous cliffs rise up marking the landscape incomparably. This area is characterized by sandy dunes, mouth zones, hill landscapes and Mediterranean wood that blend harmoniously each other.

“Torre Salsa” is another natural masterpiece, located between Siculiana Marina and Eraclea Minoa. Its peculiarity are the chalk and clay cliffs and the very bright sea, whose bottom is marked by a rich blooming flora and fauna. The six kilometers of wild nature encompass jagged shores, golden and secluded beaches, sandy dunes and uncontaminated paths which will fascinate sea and nature lovers. Furthermore you can admire the old famous sighting tower that dominates the top of a little promontory in the very centre of this oasis.

What you mustn’t miss is “Scala dei Turchi”, a singular white cliff made by limestone and clay which rises along the coast of Realmonte and overlooks a crystalline sea. Its name comes from the Turkish invasions. According to an old legend, the Saracens got there from the sea and climbed the cliff until the top; once there, they attacked the local people. It has became a tourist attraction for its particular color and shape; wind and rain have modeled it throughout the time, creating a huge natural staircase whose lines are rounded and irregular. Its white rocks look brighter thanks to the sun light and the water is incredibly clear.. it’s a paradise!


The Valley of the Temples is one of the most suggestive attraction of Sicily. It rises in the southern part of the old city and is considered the biggest archaeological park in the world. Among a blooming almond trees countryside, the wonderful ruins of the temples, whose architectural majesty is still intact, will fascinate you.

This archaeological marvel consists of eight temples built in the 5th century BC: the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Concordia, the Temple of Heracles, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple of Castor and Pollux, the Temple of Hephaestos, the Temple of Demeter, and the Temple of Asclepius (the God of Medicine). The last one is situated on the banks of the Akragas river, all the others are in the same area on a rocky scarp in the southern modern Agrigento.

The Valley of the Temples is the most sublime evidence of the Greek civilization in Sicily until today and it has been an Unesco world heritage site since 1998.

Dwelling A' Turri will offer you this and a lot more. You will experience the emotion of a special vacation combing the typical rustic quietness, magic landscapes, sea and natural paradises but also marvelous cultural routes.


Sciacca rises on a famous archaeological place between Selinunte and Agrigento; it is the oldest baths resort of Sicily and one of the biggest town in the south-eastern coast. It is a tourist destination not only for its gorgeous coasts, but also for its Baths and its famous Carnival.

The spa resorts of Sciacca have been famous since antiquity. All its people know the legend telling that Daedalus, expert in labyrinths, was able to channel the hot vapors coming from the fissures of the rock and use them for baths. Very famous are the natural steam caves of St. Calogero, its healthiness attracts not only baths followers but also people who suffer from osteoarthritis and respiratory disease.

One of the most beautiful and oldest carnival in Sicily and Italy takes places in Sciacca; there are six days of celebration with featuring impressive allegorical parades. The atmosphere is full of color, pure fun and cheerfulness, everyone takes part in celebrations.

By tradition, Peppe Nappa, the mask symbol of Sciacca Carnival, opens the celebrations by giving out sweets, sausages and wine to everybody and closes them with its stake.

Sciacca boasts a substantial production of grapes, cereals, olives, and citrus fruits. The town also has conspicuous fishing resources. The handicraft activity is especially characterized by the production of artistic ceramics and wooden objects.
