About the villa
Extensive gardens, punctuated with scented jasmine and ancient olive trees, surround this enchanting former farmstead. The house and its adjacent watchtower date back to the late 16th century, and recent restoration has cleverly retained much of their original character, while adding fabulous facilities for a family holiday. Today, timber decking surrounds an inviting swimming pool, complete with hydro-massage, surrounded by lawns, and overlooked by a broad loggia with fully-equipped kitchen and sitting and dining areas.
A second swimming pool adjoins a charming courtyard, paved in local stone and comfortably furnished with cushioned rattan. And within the house, exposed stonework, timber beams, and tiles from nearby Caltagirone set the scene for country-style rooms, furnished with elegant simplicity, where beds have prettily painted or wrought iron frames, and social spaces include two sitting rooms, two kitchens, a dining room and study. In Sicily’s south-east corner, the villa is 2km from the local shop and restaurant, just 8km from busy, baroque Modica, and 18km from sandy beaches.
