Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Noto

House with 3 bedrooms and 6 beds surrounded by a park of olive and almond trees

The house is a farm located on top of a hill to the south of the town of Noto.

The view from the living area is gratified by the city that looks like on a stage, and who suggested the name The window of Noto.

From the bedrooms the presence of the blue Ionian Sea pleases the eye.

All around olive trees and fruit trees, almond, apricot, peach and fig.

The owners, professionals in Bologna, make available to the house to give tourists the opportunity to discover the beauty of the place and the wonderful sea.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome

Wonderful 5 weeks spent in Noto

  • 5 of 5

The Window of Noto is a fantastic place to stay. We are a couple in our 30s with a young baby and we stayed here for over 5 weeks between March and May 2016. Various friends and family came to visit at different points during our stay and the owners were incredibly accommodating with these unusual changes.

The accommodation is very comfortable indeed. The property has recently undergone improvements, including a new outdoor kitchen. There are so many places to sit and relax around the property that even in 5 weeks we didn't get around them all. The pool is a reasonable size and very well maintained (cleaned twice a week). The pool area is a great place to be particularly on warm days when the breeze blows in from the sea, and the view of Noto is spectacular day and night. The bedrooms are a good size and the owners provided good quality travel cots for us and for our other guests with babies. There are even baby weaning cutlery and crockery in the kitchen.

In general the provisions and facilities are far better here than I have come to expect of holiday rentals, including a large range of kitchen utensils and appliances (microwave, blender, oven, large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, electric griddle). There is even a dedicated laundry area which also has grab-bags already kitted out for the beach for guests' use.

Ideally placed for exploring east and south-east Sicily, the villa is just a few minutes from Noto and only half an hour from the compelling city of Siracusa. (Don't even think of trying to stay here without a car.)

The owners are really lovely people and go to great lengths to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible. They live very nearby but not on-site, which is perfect, since they aren't breathing down your neck but are available at 5 minutes' notice for anything you need. For us, this included a visit to A&E (my own fault, nothing to do with the villa!) and a couple of electrical / water problems (which were resolved very quickly and efficiently). They provide a very generous welcome basket which includes a bottle of good local wine, olive oil made from olives grown in the garden, and almonds from their own almond trees. Oh, and I mustn't forget the beautiful fresh sheep's cheese awaiting us in the fridge. Savour it - you won't find it in the supermarket!

Overall, easily 5 stars, and we'd love to return in the future.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Finestra su Noto with our 2 children and had a fantastic time. The villa was great, located on top of a hill, surrounded by countryside, with a beautiful view of Noto. Inside it was well laid out. Outside there was lots of space to explore.

Anti and Pietro were very gracious hosts and nothing was too much trouble. We were made to feel very welcome. There was home sourced olive oil and lemon marmalade, as well as pasta, biscuits, milk, a bowl of fruit and a local bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived.

There were lots of nice touches in the villa too, like the beach bags with towels which were very handy, as well as a parasol. The swimming pool was lovely. I can't recommend La Finestra su Noto enough. Noto is a truly beautiful town to be near and we had a very enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to come back.

Skyline da sogno

  • 5 of 5

E due! Voglio dire che siamo tornati, per la seconda volta, alla casa vacanze "la finestra su Noto" cioè il paradiso dove è assolutamente necessario tornare ogni volta che ci si sente stanchi, tristi, annoiati..insomma scarichi.

Non voglio ripetere le meraviglie ed i comfort della location, che è sempre più bella, pulita ed efficiente e dove non riesci a trovare qualcosa che manca. Voglio però ripetere come sono squisiti, disponibili e affidabili Antì e Pietro nonchè veramente eccezionali nell'accoglienza con delizie varie.

Visto il periodo non abbiamo fatto mare, abbiamo rivisto Modica e gustato il suo cioccolato strepitoso, In una sola giornata abbiamo: visitato Messina, lo splendido Duomo e l'insolito campanile meccanico, traghettato sulla costa calabra con pranzo sul mare a Scilla e successiva visita a Reggio e ai Bronzi di Riace, due fichi incredibili.

La settimana è volata siamo ripartiti portandoci tutto nel cuore e negli occhi, a volte Renzo ed io ci guardiamo e all'unisono diciamo ...torneremo!

Quante stelle? ovviamente 5 (non quelle di Grillo)

Nadia e Renzo

consigliata

  • 5 of 5

in un posto strategico, panoramico e silenzioso.

Eravamo un gruppo di 6 persone,ogni coppia disponeva della propria camera con bagno(io ero in quella con il bagno esterno alla camera ma è come se fosse stato all'interno, per la comodità).

La casa ha ogni comfort, di classe nell'arredamento, invita a essere vissuta (nonostante le bellezze della sicilia orientale)! anche i 2 simpatici angoli che i fantastici proprietari hanno creato, un piccolo angolo all'aperto ma coperto ci ha permesso di fare una splendida grigliata, l'altro invita al relax , piattaforma in legno con sdraie e cuscini...fa molto atmosfera.

Consiglio questa casa anche per la discrezione e gentilezza dei proprietari che, peraltro, si sono dimostrati molto disponibili e interessanti.

Meravigliosa Noto

  • 5 of 5

La Finestra su Noto è un ottimo punto di appoggio per chiunque voglia godere delle bellezze del barocco Siciliano. La casa di Antì e Pietro è davvero meravigliosa, spaziosa, accogliente, confortevole, ben fornita e arredata con gusto. Il giardino è dominato da uno splendido ulivo centenario, del quale ci siamo subito innamorati, e la piccola veranda con il tavolo consente di mangiare all'esterno dalla colazione alla cena. I proprietari sono persone squisite, al nostro arrivo ci hanno fatto trovare qualcosa per la colazione, bibite fresche, olio autoprodotto, mandorle, frutta e limoni. Un posto davvero da consigliare.

Una vacanza magnifica!

  • 5 of 5

Dopo avere valutato il sito "la finestra su noto" ho contattato telefonicamente la proprietaria, la

simpaticissima Antì, con la quale ho prenotato una settimana.

Al nostro arrivo siamo stati accolti in modo eccezionale, sotto un ulivo secolare, da Antì e Pietro con un aperitivo e un vassoio di frutta fresca.

I proptietari sono stati disponibili ad ogni tipo di informazione. La villa è arredata con gusto squisito ed è pulitissima,

nelle stanze e nei bagni tutto è coordinato, in cucina troviamo ogni attrezzatura (lavastoviglie,

microonde, macchina per il caffè etc) trovo anche generi di stretta necessità per i primi momenti del

tipo: latte, biscotti, fette biscottate, nonchè una bottiglia del loro olio.

E' attorniata da un parco ben curato con ulivi e piante tipicamente mediterrane, inserita in un punto verdeggiante e tranquillo a 2/3 km da Noto. Da ogni lato si gode di una vista suggestiva:

la basilica di Noto, il mare, gli ulivi. E' attrezzata all'esterno per preparare e consumare i pasti,per prendere il sole sugli sdrai e per rilassarsi le sere al chiaro di luna. Fornisce un ottimo punto di partenza per le spiagge della riserva di Vendicari, Pachino, Marzamemi, per escursioni verso Siracusa, Taormina, la villa romana del Casale, Modica etc. Che altro dire...noi ci torneremo.

In Sicily there is a wonderful place, the Val di Noto with its territory to be discovered, its golden beaches, its crystal clear sea and the detachment with the land, "ancient", full of olive trees, almond trees and citrus.

It is a place full of contrasts: winter green and covered with flowers, summer barren and arid, windswept "west", the wind that comes straight from the desert.

Hard not to fall in love and going home not having a little bit of nostalgia.
