Overview

About the property

Exclusive Villa located near three of the most beautiful Sicilian cities: Syracuse, Avola and Noto. The house is built on the top of the Ancient Avola’s Hills, in a peaceful and relaxing place. This fascinating location is between the Iblei Mountain and the Ionio Sea.

The villa is surrounded by a luxuriant wide garden and the private pool made this place enjoyable. Thanks to its unique shape, the pool looks like a mountain lake or an exotic beach. This elegant pool is large 15x13 meters and it has different depths, therefore it is possible to swim, dive or just chill out at the poolside, where the water is less deep.

The garden, as the pool, is private and it is big 3000mq. It’s composed by different kind of trees and leafy plants: tall pines, centuries-old olive trees, exotic palms, fruit trees and many types of scented and lively flowers make this garden enchanting.

This location gives a great feeling, as you are suspended in the air between the sky and sea. It will be one of your best holiday and you will keep it forever in your mind.

Avola is considered the Perl of the Ionio Sea, because of the thin sand and the crystalline water.

Going by car from Avola, in less than 20 minutes, you can reach the beaches of Fontane Bianche, Marzamemi, San Lorenzo Calamosche and visit the Reserve of Vendicari.

This city of Avola is well known for the production of delicious type of almond and for the many vineyards which produce the exquisite Nero D’Avola wine.

The strategic location allows to enjoy a breath-taking view. Watching from the terrace to the sea, it is possible to admire the most southern part of the Sicily, the lighthouse of Capo Passero.

Proximity to the city, there are many interesting and charming places to visit: The Dolmen in its archaeological site, the villas from the Ancient Rome, the “Tonnara” and the Old Marina.

The Reserve of Cava Grande has been established in the 1984 and it is far only 2 kilometres from the villa. The lovers of the nature have the chance to see the Nache Lakes, the Cassibile River and the Ancient Cacyparis.

Great garden and pool, ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in April 2017. The pool and garden is great for young children, and they loved it. Bedrooms are comfortable and everything was provided. The entire house is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped though only a small oven - which we didn't use as we tended to eat out. There is a really nice outdoor terrace too.

The view if great but you do have a long (but nice) drive up the mountain and while it's a very secure and private place there are no conveniences to walk to, though we had an amazing meal at Turismo Rurale Avola Antica a 5 minute drive away. It's a good base for Noto, Syracuse, the Cava Grande, Vendicari and Modica and the drive to Akrai was one of my favourite trips.

We saw plenty of the owner Ignazio so if you have a problem he is around. We don't speak Italian but we managed OK, though I think we had a few mix ups but that's to be expected.

Brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July. The villa is well laid out with good facilities - everything you need. The owner was helpful and welcoming. What made the place really special was the outdoor area, including a large shady terrace, beautiful landscaped gardens and the most amazing pool. We had planned to do lots of sight seeing but we loved the villa and spent much of our holiday here. The pool has a shallow 'beach' area but it is also big enough and deep enough to swim in and it provided the perfect way to keep cool in the hot Sicilian summer.

The road from Avola to the villa winds up the hillside with some sharp bends with stunning views all the way up. It is well worth the trip. The roads near the villa are a bit narrower but we had no problem with our medium sized hire car (a VW Touran). There are no shops in the village but there are plenty of shops in Avola and we found everything we wanted.

Avola is a good base for visiting this part of Sicily with Syracuse, Noto and Modica all in easy reach. Avola has sandy beaches and the sea is crystal clear - bring your snorkel and mask! In all these places there are good restaurants, particularly if, like us, you enjoy fresh fish and seafood.

We had the holiday of a lifetime here and we would highly recommend it.

Lovely house on top of a hill

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property for a week, in June 2016.

You have everything you need in the house. The owner, Ignazio, is very attentive with all the details.

The pool is ideal, especially for kids.

Lovely garden and view.

Highly recommend it!

"We were totally pleased ...

  • 5 of 5

"We were totally pleased with this property: the villa was extremely well equipped, the gardens large and attractive, the terrace wonderful, with views across the gorge to the hills across. The surroundings were beautiful, and absolutely no noise. We enjoyed eating at the convent-turned restaurant on the other side of the gorge -- good food in abundance, reasonably priced. You do definitely need a car for this property, and the sharp curves on the road up need getting used to -- but worth it.

The owner was very generous with his help, quick to respond to any request, kind and convivial.

We think warmly of this place and would happily return."

Très bel emplacement, superbe piscine et terrasse

  • 4 of 5

La maison, la piscine, la terrasse, etc. sont conformes à la description faite sur le site et parfaits. Très bon accueil d'Ignazio avec un frigo bien fourni. Ses explications sont claires et les conseils sur les restaurants alentours très judicieux ! La villa est située dans les hauteurs (10' de voiture sur une très belle route en lacets) ce qui permet d'avoir une très belle vue et d'être bien plus tranquille sans être bien loin d'Avola.

Tout petit bémol : la cuisine pourrait être mieux agencée en installant un vrai four. Un lave-vaisselle compléterait également avantageusement l'équipement permettant à tous d'être déchargés de cette corvée pendant les vacances (même si ce n'est rien de bien terrible il faut l'avouer).

Superbe villa sur les hauteurs d'Avola, quartier résidentiel très calme et vue magnifique, propriétaire très sympathique, séjour en famille, piscine très agréable à toute heure de la journée, chambres spacieuses et climatisées, salles de bains confortables, avons beaucoup apprécié nos repas pris sur la grande terrasse ombragée, il manque juste le lave vaisselle pour le 5 étoiles ++. Nous y reviendrons sûrement....
