2012 was our first season with our newly renovated villa. We have strived to provide a high standard of service and will continue to do so over the years with the help of our guests comments. We want you to return year after year. A welcome pack is provided with essential and luxury items to start your holiday off eg; bottled water, bread, milk, home made meal awaiting your arrival with local red and white vino and chilled beers. After a long and tiring day of travelling, the last thing on your mind will be shopping. There are many beautiful places to walk on our private land both day and night.

The property is accessed by a well maintained private road,, it is in a rural setting albeit not remote. There is no light pollution enabling you to enjoy the big sky at night. We are between the mountains and the sea and both the sea and the City of Noto can be seen from the top of our private hillside. Feel free to wander at your leisure throughout the land and enjoy the peace and tranquility that the area has to offer. There is a large tiled loggia/terrace for alfresco dining/BBQ. For those Bird Watchers amongst you it will not disappoint. The enjoyment of your long awaited holiday is as important to us as it is to you, if not, more important.

"Great hospitality, warm welcome and relaxing stay"

Rustic charm in the midst of a Sicilian lemon and olive farm. Great views acros the owners property. They are a great Scottish couple who are really helpful and welcoming: meeting you at the motorway exit and guiding you to your abode; providing a great meal on arrival (linda is a good cook); the fullest welcoming pack we have ever received; lots of advice about where to visit and eat (Linda & Benny could produce their own guidebook!), sample of their produce which can be purchased to take home.

A car is essential. The Baroque towns can be comfortably reached on a day trip, but other parts of Siciliy take much longer, so relax and enjoy the views!

To be aware that the owners have 2 guard dogs (understandably in the countryside) & cats if you are allergic to animals.
