Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This is an old farmhouse lying between Modica and Frigintini that dominates a wide stretch of olive trees and carobs, a peaceful place that a well-known sicilian artist has restored with love and with her own artistic style. The garden is enclosed on one side by a wall in local stone, and on the other it looks over the countryside, and is characterized by a long, 21 metre, irregular-shaped swimming-pool, with a large paved farmyard and green spaces with olive and palm trees, and is all perfectly blended in with its natural surroundings. In the upper part is an area where you can land by helicopter. The interiors have been created with refined taste harmonising both antique and modern furniture. The house is equipped with satellite TV, stereo with CD player, dishwasher, washing-machine, barbecue. The village of Frigintini is about 2 kms away and has all the services you might need, including some excellent restaurants, while Modica lies about 8 kms away. Many attractive sicilian towns are within easy reach: Scicli 19 kms, Ispica 25 kms, Ragusa 22, Noto 30 - places where the late baroque architecture has bequeathed us some of its best treasures. The sea is also within easy reach, Pozzallo is 30 kms away, Marina di Ragusa 35 kms, and the nature reserve at Vendicari is about 50 kms away.

The Sicily region
The largest of the Italian islands, Sicily overflows with an abundance of natural and architectural beauty. From the slopes of Mt Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, to Palermo's classical ruins and the family-friendly sparkling blue waters of Giardini Naxos and Letojanni, Sicily has something for everyone.
Perhaps one destination which sums up Sicily's charms is Taorimna, where twisting medieval streets host bustling boutiques and restaurants alongside an awe-inspiring Greek theatre. A cable car carries beach lovers to the town's sweeping bays, from where you can enjoy dramatic views along a rugged coastline.
Throw in the island's renowned passion for fine food and home grown wines, and you have the perfect recipe for a great holiday...and your own personal slice of 'la bella vita'.
