Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages
  • No pets allowed
  • Private garden

In Sicilian dialect “Mannera” is a sheepcote and this villa has been sensitively restored to retain traces of its original use: the large courtyard enclosed by a wall, today a delightful Zen garden, was once used as a sheepfold; the large canopied areas, now elegant outdoor spaces, were probably used to shelter the sheep during bad weather; and the rooms where the shepherds would have lived, have been converted into practical and comfortable bedrooms.

This minimalist renovation perfectly combines simple elegance and practicality, further enhanced by the judicious use of traditional rustic objects and family furniture.

The villa is surrounded by an enormous garden ( 5 Hectares), and is part of the Vendicari nature reserve, lying just a short distance from the famous bay of “Cala Mosca”. The Sicilian Baroque towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa Ibla – all of them denoted World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, are close by, as are the fascinating seaside villages of Marzamemi and Portopalo, with their tuna fisheries, warehouses and traditional fishermen's homes.

The Sicily region

L'Oasi di Vendicari has been a nature reserve since 1984. Today it is internationally recognised as one of the most vital coastal reserves in Europe, attracting 100s of species of migratory birds every year.

As well as seeing typical Mediterranean maquis in all its splendour, you can swim in crystal-clear waters, and walk for miles along beaches of fine white sand. It is not for nothing that people compare the beach at Cala Mosca with those of the Caribbean!

The reserve is just 14km south of Noto, one of eight towns in the Val di Noto declared by UNESCO to be World Heritage sites as unique examples of Sicilian Baroque town planning and architecture.

In the surrounding area are the fascinating natural reserves of Fiume Irminio, Prainito, and Manghisi; the cave necropoli of Pantalica and Castelluccio, and small cultural towns such as Modica e Scicli which together with Noto have a rich season of cultural events every summer.


The house is located inside the Vendicari Nature Reserve.

A marked footpath leads from the entrance to the beach at Cala Mosca, 200 metres away (around 10 mins walk)

Open-plan wardrobes

Two of the bedrooms have external, independent entrances

Opening off one of the bedrooms is a double bedroom which has to be passed through on the way to the bathroom
