This old country estate with private pool is located at the heart of baroque Sicily, between the towns of Noto and Palazzolo Acreide (both listed as UNESCO cultural heritage). Surrounded by a large, luxuriant garden, this dwelling is a wide complex built according to the local, traditional architecture that offers a wonderful view of the typical fields of grain, carob plants, ancient olive and almond trees stretching out as far as the eye can see. Recently and tastefully restored, Villa Spiga has spacious, well appointed interior and exterior areas that merge the original, ancient charm of this estate with modern comforts. Its rooms, from the six cosy bedrooms, to the fine lounge with fireplace, to the country style kitchen, feature exquisite details and perfectly combine classical décor with more functional furnishings for comfortable living. Villa Spiga - ideal setting for anyone looking for rest and relaxation - is also an excellent starting point for discovering the beautiful surrounding area. Situated halfway between the Iblean Mountains and the coast of Siracusa, from the estate can be easily reached many charming baroque towns, such as the island of Ortigia, the historical centre of Siracusa, Modica, Scicli and Ragusa-Ibla.

The Sicily region

Its sun-drenched landscapes and rich cultural heritage have always attracted travellers from the North, hungry for learning. As early as the 18th and 19th centuries, Sicily was an essential stop on the \â??Grand Tourâ??, the long educational trip around Europe that young aristocrats â?? mainly from England and France â?? took before starting out in life. And Germanyâ??s great writer Goethe (1749-1832) embarked on a study trip around Italy over several years, which also took him all the way to Sicily. Not only thanks to its mild Mediterranean climate, Sicily is still a very popular destination today. The islandâ??s main attraction is its wealth of archaeological and culturally significant sites â?? many of which are on the UNESCO world heritage list. Over the centuries, the island saw many different rulers, including the Greeks, Romans, Arabs and Normans. All of them left their mark on its character, alongside rich testimonies to their settlements. This wealth of cultural delights ranges from the magnificent palaces and baroque churches in Ragusa-Ibla, Modica, Scicli, Noto, Syracuse and Catania to the archaeological excavation sites in the Valley of the Temples of Agrigent, in Selinunt and Segesta, from the ancient villas and Roman baths in Piazza Armerina to the stylised architecture of the Norman cathedrals of Palermo, Monreale and Cefalù. Among the most beautiful resorts on the island, or perhaps in all of Italy, are without a doubt Taormina and Cefalù. Taormina, with its bright terraces high above the sea, offers an absolutely stunning scenic view: beyond the blue bay of Isola Bella, Mount Etna rises majestically in the distance.

Noto

Syracuse â?? one among the most beautiful cities of the Mediterranean Sea â?? is situated right on the coast facing the sea, it is rich in history and monuments and expresses the whole range and cultural complexity of Sicily from prehistory up to present days. The ancient small town of Greek origin was founded by the Corinthians in 734 B.C. and in the course of the years underwent several rules: Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normansâ?¦ The town was razed to the ground by the tragic earthquake of 1693, soon afterwards was rebuilt according to a prevalently baroque style and still nowadays its historical downtown pervades with a pretty fascinating eighteenth century atmosphere. Numerous are its monuments worth visiting: the Duomo (Cathedral), the Fonte Aretusa (Fount of Aretusa), the Castello Maniace (Castle of the Maniace family), the Teatro Greco (Greek Theatre), the Orecchio di Dioniso (Ear of Dionysusâ?? cave), the Castello Eurialo (Castle of Eurialo). To those ones who are fond of nature and trekking we recommend, besides the renowned bathing localities, the Riserva Naturale di Cavagrande del Cassibile (Natural Reserve) crossed by a short river which in its course creates some natural small lakes where one gets the chance to take a bath surrounded by an oasis of sheer Mediterranean vegetation. At late evening it is really nice taking a walk along the sea-front promenade of Ortigia Island where one may taste the sesame flavoured â??torroneâ?? (kind of nougat) or drink a glass of â??Rosso di Pachinoâ?? (red wine). Cultural events take place all the year long but the classical plays of the Greek tragedies â?? staged in the ancient theatre of Syracuse during the months of May and June â?? have international fame.
