I have a passion for houses and interior design . I work in communications. I like to read and write . I love traveling, especially in the East. We have two beautiful children Roman and Catherine that enliven our days. In my spare time I like swimming, skiing, practice yoga and listen to jazz music, rocking hammock at sunset .
Manuela purchased this villa in 2010
I'm in love with Sicily, a land of strong sensations , where with my favorite Sicilian - my husband Maurizio - we have built la Casa delle nache "the house of hammocks" dedicated to the art of annacarsi , ie the "dolce far niente" in the Sicilian version.
We fell in love with the place at first sight. The views of Capo Bianco and the long beach of Bovo Marina that goes up to Torre Salsa is truly breathtaking . From the living room you see the sea . The Veranda marrochian style is perfect for a sunset dinner.
What a wonderful house. A modern oasis in a beautifully rugged countryside. We are a family of six and fit very comfortably. If you want to get away from it all this is the place. If you don't then it is not. There really is nothing directly around the house. A few restaurants at the beach which is a short 2 minute drive. The one we tried was just ok. My family is in Ribera which is the next major town over so we hit the markets there. Lots of night time action in Seccagrande if you are looking for that.
The terrace was amazing. At night we could see the Milky Way. This was a treat as all we can see in Chicago are airplanes. Eating outside was lovely but if your kids are like mine, wait for the sun to go down to avoid the bees and wasps.
Do not miss Torre Salsa. Truly the most amazing beach I have ever scene! Scary drive on a dirt road but so worth it.
Manuela, we would return without hesitation.
We stayed two weeks in the house from 23rd April 2016 on with 5 adults. The house is very comfortable and decorated with great style. Breathtaking seeviews in an unspoilt and rural setting. Impeccable bath and bedrooms. Very cordial owners. We were checked in by the guardian most friendly as well. We felt more than welcome and would like to come again.
