The Sicily region

Monte Croce is situated In the south east of Sicily, in the green and wild Iblei mountains, close to places of archaeological, historical and architectural interest. It is a small farmhouse, a small farmhouse built at the beginning of the 1900s.

Monte Croce is Ideal for a calm and relaxing vacation with the opportunity to explore the countryside and visit the famous cities of art and culture nearby.

The pleasant construction of the cottage preserves the character of the traditional Sicilian rural abode, set within nine hectares of olive groves and carob trees, with typical Sicilian bushes such as thyme and sage. Many wild flowers and shrubs occur naturally on our land and it offers shelter to small animals – toads, hares and if you are lucky, you may come across tortoises nestling in the undergrowth. Beware of small snakes too. We have seen a viper, so take care and take a stick with you when you walk in the “bush”.

Both from the house and from the garden there is a splendid panoramic view: to the north, on a clear day you can see the magnificent volcano, Mount Etna, while to the south, you can glimpse the splendid sea of Vendicari.

From Monte Croce there are many easily accessible interesting and famous Sicilian places to visit:

Noto (13km), Siracusa (38 km), Palazzolo Acreide (18 km) Modica (40 km).

We will be pleased to recommend alternative, personalised itineraries and can also recommend excellent cafes and restaurants in the nearby towns.

The owners, Jackie and Francesco, are happy to welcome you and to make your stay unforgettable.

Noto

The swimming pool is close to the house. It is equipped with steps down and night time illumination.

The dimensions of the pool are: 9.20 metres x 6 metres and 1.50m deep, all over. The design is a figure of eight format.

The view of the countryside from the pool is fantastic and you get the sun there all day! Watch the sunset from the poolside – it's fabulous!

Sun loungers and parasols are provided for your comfort and shade.

The cottage is furnished with simplicity and taste in ancient style; it is endowed with every comfort to allow the guests a pleasant stay in Sicily.

It is on one level and sleeps 4 people comfortably. There are two double bedrooms – one with a double bed, the other with two singles. The bedrooms face west and have their own balconies, where you can sit and watch the sunset - if you're not watching it go down while you sit by the swimming pool!

There is a large and comfortable sofa bed in the living/dining room. This room also has a stone fireplace and large dining table for entertaining.

The kitchen has a gas cooker; a fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. There is a breakfast bar.

The floors are made of fired earthen tiles and the kitchen and living/dining room ceilings have the original reeds and exposed beams.

The bathroom has a tub with shower over; a wash hand basin, wc and bidet.
