About the property

Large rooms with bathroom beautiful swimming pool, solarium and verandas

In the heart of Val di Noto, in the wonderful Ibla countryside, among centuries-old olive trees and fruit orchards you can find Villa Hena a magnificent example of restoration of the typical Sicilian stone mansions.

Villa Hena has been completely renovated and refurbished in every aspect, it has the most modern comforts and offers its guests moments of delightful relax in contact with the surrounding nature.

There are large outer and well equipped lounge areas where you can spend moments of real relax, enriched by a garden full of centuries old olive trees, a fruit orchard and a well trimmed lawn.

The big exclusive infinity pool, with salty water and waterfalls, is equipped with deck chairs, tables, chairs and beach umbrellas. You can enjoy refreshing moments of pure relax with a wonderful view on the surrounding countryside.

You can also enjoy the lounge with an ancient stone oven, accurately renewed and artistically modernised with stone outer walls. Our chef is available on request to organize unforgettable lunches and dinners based on the typical Sicilian cuisine of the area.

The outer areas are decorated and adorned with splendid boundary walls made of stones with the typical Sicilian technique of dry-stone walls.

Finally, the carefully lighted structure creates a surreal effect.

The villa is made up of a wide living area where you can also find the well equipped kitchen with modern electrical appliances. On the ground floor there is a bedroom with en suite bathroom and a double room with queen size beds and a sofa bed with bathroom.

On the first floor there is a wonderful bedroom with en suite bathroom (bathtub and shower box inside), wooden roofs, side balconies which allow our guests a panoramic view on the surrounding countryside and on the swimming pool waterfalls, well lighted at night.

Magic place-Vila Henna, Giarrratana, Sicilia

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this incredible place, Villa Hena for seven beautiful days. The house and its surroundings with the huge pool and olive trees are beyond every imagination. The house is very nice and decorated with style which reflects the beauty of the Sicily and their people. House is very well equipped so you have all facilities, like you were at your own home. Each room has its separate bathrooms which makes it perfect for a group of friends. If you travel with children there is even nice playground within the property which will make your child happy. View from the pool is spectacular over the Sicilian hills full of olive trees. It looks like a painting. Moreover, the guy who was taking care of our stay, Francesco, is such lovely person always ready to help you and at your disposal. Place is perfect spot for visiting the beautiful cities of Ragusa and Notto. Don't forget Giarratana where villa is located. You will fall in love easily with kindness of local people, richness of food and the culture. Definitely , I ll come back. Damir
