Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Shared Pool will be available from May 2014! It will be shared with a nearby property, and it will be very near the gazebo.
New on the market - A brand new three bedroom & four bathroom private country villa luxuriously finished with modern decor throughout. Set on a plot area of 6000 square metres, hidden between mature olive and fruit trees, the villa enjoys total privacy from the street and the best views of the forest in front and the hills on the sides - over 180 degrees of nature and a lot of sun. The south-facing position of the property makes it full of natural sun light during the whole day.
****The villa can also be rented with the nearby two bedroom property. Both properties together will accommodate up to 12 persons and guests will enjoy the pool privately. Also, if our calendar is marked booked for any particular dates and you are a group of less than six people, kindly contact us to see if we can offer you the other house. ****
The main entrance to the property is through a gate from a secondary street. A winding small and private path leads to the villa and its outdoor area. Ample parking space is available.
The garden and olive groves are well kept and taken care of.
The large paved outdoor space in front of the villa enjoys an extendable teak dining table with chairs, four teak sun loungers and over 20 square metres wooden gazebo with a five-seater outdoor sofa set.
This modern rural villa is ideal for guests looking for a relaxation holiday in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by nature, peace and tranquility. An ideal pace to gain energy and spend a couple of days away from the everyday routine and chaos.
Even though the property is situated on the outskirts, it is only five minutes' drive from the village of Giarratana, 5 minutes from San Giacomo, 20 minutes from the picturesque city of Modica and 25 minutes from the city of Ragusa and the baroque Ragusa Ibla. Being set nearly in the middle of the province of Ragusa, it is a very good base for exploring this great Sicilian province, its Hyblean mountains and its large sandy beaches. A car is a must.
The spacious interior of the villa makes it very comfortable for 6 and even 8 people.
The large kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances including: electric kettle, toaster, coffee making machine, electric hob, cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven.
Cutlery items are for eight persons including beer glasses, wine glasses and champagne glasses. The extendable dining table inside has a capacity of six seats with the possibility of eight. Large glass apertures lead to the outdoor dining area, making it very bright and fresh. All glass doors in the kitchen have controllable sunblock roller blinds to protect the inside from the sun during summer and leave it fresher throughout the day.
When the weather is nice and sunny, enjoy dining outside the kitchen on a teak extendable table underneath a large umbrella to protect from the sun during the mornings and afternoons. One can enjoy cooking outside on the stone barbecue near the kitchen.
The large open living area downstairs is equipped with white 3 seater & 2 seater leather sofas, large modern ethanol fireplace (ideal for the cold season) 42inch 3D LED TV with digital terrestrial channels (mostly Italian channels), BluRay DVD player, unique shape coffee table and modern stainless steel/wooden staircase leading to the upper bedrooms. There is also satellite internet with WiFi available for free to be used by our guests.
The 3 seater sofa bed can be converted to another double bed. An extra single folding bed is also available for use.
The villa has three comfortable bedrooms:
Bedroom 1 downstairs with a double bed, corner wardrobe and an en-suite large bathroom with walk-in mosaic shower and bath. A large sliding door leads directly to the outdoor relaxation area. This bedroom is equipped with air conditioning.
Bedroom 2 upstairs with a double bed, sliding wardrobe, an en-suite shower room and elevated wooden roof. The window is supplied with an insect screen and a ventilation fan is available.
Bedroom 3 upstairs with two single beds (which can be converted to one double bed with a mattress topper), en-suite bath with walk-in shower and elevated wooden roof. The window is supplied with an insect screen and a ventilation fan is available.
All bedrooms enjoy beautiful views of the forest in front of the house.
A cot and high chair are available on request.

The Sicily region
Sicily being the largest island in the Mediterranean has a pleasantly warm and dry climate making it the perfect holiday destination thought-out the whole year. You want to avoid the snow and cold in your country? South of Sicily is your best destination. How about summer? Wonderful sandy beaches are all around the coast of Sicily.
But Sicily is not just weather and beaches. Sicily is full of history, culture, wonderful country side and last but not least superb food!
Some of the major attractions near the property are
1) The Baroque city of Ragusa Ibla with its 18 recognised UNESCO World Heritage monuments. More baroque architecture can also be found Modica, Scicli, Noto and Caltagirone.
2) Caltagirone – the Sicilian city of ceramics. Lots of shops to buy unique ceramics
3) Siracusa Greek theatre
4) Mt. Etna active volcano – you can climb this magnificent active volcano and enjoy the spectacular surrounding views.
5) Trek in the wild countryside of the Ispica, Cassibile valleys and in the rock caves of Pantalica, and the Hyblean Mountains
A little bit far (146Km) but worth visiting are the Greek Temples (The Valley of the Temples) in Agrigento.
Apart from the vast amount of local restaurants where you can dine out in style enjoying the Sicilian coiusin (don't forget the wine of course), the sandy beaches further to the south, a drive or a walk in the Hyblean Mountains, the following must NOT be missed.
Ragusa: Castello di Donnafugata
This seemingly medieval castle from the aristocratic family of Arezzo de Spuches is some 9 miles outside of Ragusa.
Ragusa: Chiesa di Santa Maria dell'Itria
Pretty baroque church in the old town of Ragusa Ibla.
Main church in the Upper Town of Ragusa from the 18th century.
Ragusa: Museo Archeologico di Ragusa Ibla
Archeological museum with exhibits mainly from pre-historic and ancient Greek times.
Ragusa: While in Ragusa, visit also the other UNESCO World Heritage monuments..
Ispica: Cava d'Ispica
Fascinating Bronze Age necropolis stretching over 6 miles.
Modica: Casa Museo di Salvatore Quasimodo
Museum celebrating the Modica lyricist and Nobel Price of Literature winner Salvatore Quasimodo (1901 – 1968).
Modica: Duomo di San Giorgio
Main church of the town, baroque style.
Santa Croce Camarina: Museo Archeologico Regionale di Kamarina
Museum with exhibits from the ancient town of Kamarina. The excavations should not be missed.
Scicli: Small town with 25.000 inhabitants, very pretty baroque centre.
There is a lot more to see, this is just a taste!

"Superb villa near Modica"
'The villa is in a lovely tranquil setting overlooking a wooded hillside. It is surrounded by olive trees and very little traffic comes along the road so it is possible to sit on the terrace at any time of day or evening and have a quiet drink or alfresco meal. Inside the villa is very comfortable with a modern well equipped kitchen , three double bedrooms and three bathrooms which are also equipped to a high standard. Within a few kilometres of the villa there are supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Nearby there are the famous hill top towns of Ragusa and Modica which are a must to visit. A real bonus is that you can arrange to have an authentic Sicilian meal prepared for you in the kitchen of the villa. We did and it was the best meal we had. We would definitely stay there again if we get the chance
We really appreciate your nice comments and pleased that you have enjoyed your stay with us in our villa.
Many Thanks again.
