Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Scicli - Casa Pezzafilippa

Directly on the sandy beach, great sea view balcony, max. 4 persons, 2 bedrooms

Location and special feature:

„Per arrivare a mare, uscendo dalla casa, si deve esclusivamente attraversare la spiaggia“ (in English: 'In order to reach the sea, you need only cross the sandy beach') – that is how the friendly owner and producer of organic tomatoes, Signor Adriano, describes the location of his holiday apartments at Donnalucata.

Onsite, we were able to witness this fantastic location ourselves. Just one step out of the house and you feel the fine sand beneath your feet.

From among the four holiday apartments in the house, we have chosen for you the 1st floor apartment which offers a fantastic sea view terrace.

The wide sandy beach of the district of Pezzafilippa stretches out before you. Due to the gently sloping access into the sea, the beach offers ideal conditions for families with children.

The center of Donnalucata is within walking distance of about 800 m along the beach. So, when taking a morning stroll along the beach, you might bring home, for example, fresh panini for breakfast!

The holiday apartment:

Casa Pezzafilippa accommodates two adults and two children. There is a double bedroom as well as a room with bunk bed.

The eat-in kitchen includes a sofa bed, a kitchenette with 4-burner gas stove, oven, refrigerator with freezer compartment and a dining table. The kitchen gives onto the apartment’s terrace.

The bathroom is equipped with shower, WC and bidet.

Outdoor area:

On the terrace, which is shaded by an awning, you are seated, so-to-speak, directly above the bright sandy beach. Garden furniture, a small barbecue and a wash basin are at your disposal.


Casa Pezzafilippa includes, among others, a washing machine for shared use, a barbecue and electric heaters (upon request).


You can park your car in a public parking near the holiday apartment.


Shopping facilities and restaurants are found at Donnalucata (800 m on foot via the sandy beach, 2 km by car).

The Baroque town of Scicli, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is only 8 km off.


To those who rise early, we recommend a visit to the fish market of Donnalucata, where you can buy fresh-caught seafood. You might even get to chat with the fishermen and the inhabitants of the town.

In the south of Sicily, cyclists get their money’s worth, too. The flat open country and the fact that there is hardly any traffic on the coastal road during low season are ideal conditions for discovering the southern part of Italy’s largest island by bike.

Baroque beauty at the intersection of three ravines:

Scicli is located in the southeast of Sicily at the intersection of three ravines. In 1693, the small country town was completely destroyed by a devastating earthquake – and rose renewed in Baroque splendour. Due to its fanciful buildings and beautifully laid out plazas, the UNESCO nominated Scicli World Heritage Site.


The people here still live mainly on farming and fishing. Our tip: when visiting the local fish market, you will get to know the land and the people!

Those who know the Commissario Montalbano films will, at Donnalucata, be reminded of the crime series’ settings.

Most of the shooting was in fact done in the southeast of Sicily, mainly at the towns of Scicli, Modica and Ragusa.

Wide sandy beaches and the nature reserve of the river Irminio:

Not only vacationers interested in culture get their money's worth in the area around Scicli. Water bugs will find fantastic conditions at the wide sandy beaches between Portopalo and Scoglitti.

Riserva del Fiume Irmino has been named after the river which meets the sea between Marina di Ragusa and Donnalucata.

Beaches with dunes, at which you can also enjoy bathing, the typical 'macchia mediterranea' and rare species of animals – that is the charm of the nature reserve.
