Villa Sara, an air-conditioned veranda overlooking the sea.

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,076 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 7 nights


About the property

A place of sea, sun and nature to 300 m from the town square and promenade views.

But the almost unique advantage of the house is the large and air-conditioned veranda (40 sqm) facing south with sea views and enclosed on three sides with large sliding windows, ideal for enjoying the sea and the sun all day in any weather and at any season, "shade in the summer, the winter sun."

It is not the usual roof open and exposed to the wind and the cold of winter: for this is also available in monthly rent to retired couples who want to escape the rigors of the northern regions, however, the whole house is air-conditioned for hot and cold.

Veranda of 40 square meters on the back (closed grate) with washing machine, sink, chest, wardrobe, mirror and barbecue: comfortable place for bikes and scooters.

Water system with water pressure and hot water immediately and without limits by gas water heater, there is also a cistern as a water reserve.

Outdoor shower with hot water.

Adults and children can swim in the sea in front of the house (low rocky beach) or in two sandy beaches are to the east and west, about 800 m.

Vineyard and fruit trees (lemons, mulberries, figs, etc.) create a simple and bucolic, but in contact with the sea.

A very special experience.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is ideally situated to relax by the sea and to explore SE Sicily. There is plenty of room for a couple or a family of four. Giorgio is the most exceptional host; he not only wants you to enjoy your stay by the sea but he is very keen for you to experience the best food that Sicily offers. I have never seen a 'welcome pack' like it! A vast array of fruit, vegetables, local delicacies, oil, vinegar, cheeses and wine - we really struggled to eat it all during our week. The highlights were Giorgio's home made orange jam and local Modica chocolate. The villa is set up with everything you could ask for and is 5 minutes walk from the beach in Marina di Modica and 15 minutes walk from the superb Sampieri beach. Bicycles are included in the let. Our days out included Modica, Ragusa Ilba, Noto and Siracusa - the roads are not perfect nor is the driving of the locals but these places are all worth a visit.

Fabulous hospitality from Georgio

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly fabulous holiday in Georgio's villa. His hospitality and generosity are boundless. The house is equipped with everything you could ever possibly need. He is a truly amazing host providing not only local produce but his own home grown lemons, olive oil and wine.

The villa is in a very beatiful location. Right on the sea front yet a short stroll into the village along the promenade. The surrounding towns and village range from beatiful costal resorts to stunning architecture. All the locals are as hospitable as Georgio. We had an amazing holiday and it was so much more than we had expected. We have already booked to come back again next year.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We can only agree wholeheartedly with the previous visitors' comments. There was lots of food left for us - fresh and dried. The counter was covered with choice fruit, olives etc. Georgio was a very hospitable host. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. There was a lovely view of the sea and a cool comfortable verandah. We highly recommend this villa. Thank you Georgio for a wonderful stay

Generous Giorgio, fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

Giorgio welcomed us with the best stocked house we have ever visited: his own wine and olive oil, pastries, fresh fruit and vegetables (the Sicilian tomatoes are delicious), pasta, chocolate ... Every kitchen press he opened held another surprise. Thank you, Giorgio. The house itself is equipped with everything you need, and, just as shown in the photos, there are beautiful views of the Giorgio's small vineyard overlooking the sea from the front sun room. Temperatures were in the low 30s when we visited, but the house was comfortably cool, with air conditioning in all of the bedrooms. Location is perfect: Marina di Modica about 10 mins walk away on one side and the exceptional beach of Sampieri about 20 mins by foot on the other. We travelled mostly on the bikes Giorgio had kindly provided for our family of 5 ... 2 bikes gratis, and the other 3 for a very nominal fee.

All in all, a fantastic rental, and we would definitely visit again. Gracie, Giorgio!

A great place to enjoy this delightful area.

  • 5 of 5

Giorgio is a generous, welcoming and helpful host. The villa is the best stocked holiday accommodation we have ever stayed in. Giorgio not only provides food and drink but also kitchen supplies, cleaning supplies, bathroom supplies and even suntan lotion. The villa is also well equipped. It is conveniently located for visiting the lovely baroque towns in the area. At the same time it is a pleasure to sit in the verandah and enjoy the sights and sound of the sea. We will definitely return and would recommend the villa to anyone who wants to experience this delightful part of Sicily.

Fabulous family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family holiday here at Giorgio's villa overlooking the sea. Giorgio made the stay even better by his amazing generosity, providing us with local food produce, his own homemade marmalade, ricotta, olive oil and wine! He gave us many helpful tips on where to eat and visit. He also provided, impromptu, our youngest son with a bike so that we could make the most of the beautiful bicycle path behind the sand dunes every day. We loved it! Thank you Giorgio, you truly have an amazingly clean, beautiful and well resourced villa.
