Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Noto - Artists' Cottage in Noto

The Artists' Cottage is a stone cottage about 50 sq. m within an organic vineyar

The Artists' Cottage is Artists Residency: a small stone house of 50 square meters. The cottage is overlooking the vineyards where we practice organic agriculture and where we grow different varieties of herbs and fruit trees to promote biodiversity. It is situated on a hill at about 80 meters above the sea level. You can spot from afar the blue silhouette of the ocean nestled between the rolling hills. The Artists Cottage consists of one room featuring a dining area with a table and six chairs, a living room with television (AC and heating system). This space includes a double bed built on a slightly elevate masonry structure with ample closet areas, two single beds built on masonry structure that create a comfortable seating area and comfortable dining area.

We will provide to our guests a complete set of bathroom towels (big + small + bath towel), bed sheets and blanket if necessary. For your evening enjoyment we also have Family Games

available for you such as dominos, cards, albums and drawing pencils, pictionary, Yatzi and Mikado. For the enjoyment of the outdoors, we also have sun loungers, tables, chairs and a barbecue.

I called it Artists' Cottage because from December 2015 it will be art residence with the project Bridge Art.

About Valeria Valenza

A passionate reader and an avid trekker, I am also a German scholar and a translator. I studied and specialized in German language and literature at Saarbruecken and Wiesbaden (Germany). I have a degree in writing from Holden School in Turin; a master's degree in Communication Techniques from Gestalt Institute HCC Italy. Today I am a farmer, an entrepreneur and a writer.

Valeria Valenza purchased this chateau / country house in 2000

Why Valeria Valenza chose Syracuse Province

In the late nineteenth century this property was part of our family’s estate. The land was already planted with vineyards and known for the quality of the wines produced. In the year 2000, my family had the great opportunity to buy this property back. We are thrilled to continue the legacy of our ancestors and to renew the same passion and love for this site.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

I was born and raised in a big city in the north west part of Sicily. When I arrived in this part of Sicily twenty years ago it was an epiphany. I learned how to immerse myself in the expanse and the silence of Southern Sicily. I savored the spectacle of the olive groves and cicadas symphonies. On a full moon night, a magic wand turns the rolling hills into a silver color. I have learned how to appreciate the morning awakening of the plants and the labor of nature. I indulged in the pleasure of sipping a coffee while sitting on our bench in front the vineyards, watching the whimsical color changes of the vines. At night, I often lied down by the front of the house watching in awe the sky full of stars. I realized how unique is this place. Most importantly I can feel the warm, generous embrace of my own land, an experience that I am willing to share with you. Welcome to my dream!

mitica casetta

  • 5 of 5

Un fine settimana bellissimo in questa casetta tra le vigne a pochi minuti da spiagge solitarie e i luoghi più belli del nostro barocco.

La casa è bella, molto pulita e arredata con grande gusto e rispetto della tradizione. I proprietari sono gentilissimi, ci hanno aiutato nella scelta dei ristoranti e delle spiagge da raggiungere facilmente. Ci torneremo presto!

grazie

fabrizio e martina

Semplicemente incantevole.

  • 5 of 5

Location ottima : a un passo da tutti i posti più importanti della zona ossia Noto, Vendicari, Marzamemi, Portopalo. Questo piccolo casale ristrutturato con molto gusto dai proprietari , è immerso nella splendida campagna di Noto, i cui i vigneti e olivi fanno da quinta scenografica, seguendo dolcemente i crinali. Gli interni sono comodi e spaziosi, dotati di ogni confort. Abbiamo anche deguststo gli ottimi vini della Cantina Tenuta La Favola, ben variegata, passando dal bianco, oserei dire gentile e frutratto agli splendidi rossi finendo con un moscato da togliere il fiato. Dobbiamo ringraziare di cuore i coniugi Gurrieri che ci hanno permesso di passare questa splendida vacanza.

Esperienza bellissima!

  • 5 of 5

la casetta è deliziosa, ci sono tutte le comodità, il panorama dei vigneti è mozzafiato a qualsiasi ora, nelle notti di luna piena è davvero suggestivo. Il relax è totale, arrivano solo i suoni e i profumi della natura. Nei dintorni ci sono luoghi per tutti i gusti: dalle spiagge isolate ai pantani dove si possono scorgere aironi e altre specie migratorie, ai luoghi più frequentati dai turisti come lo splendore barocco di Noto o la vivacità di Marzamemi.

Il servizio è ottimo, ineccepibile sotto tutti i punti di vista. L'attività vitivinicola della vicina tenuta offre anche la possibilità di degustare vini eccellenti da coltivazioni biologiche di Nero d'Avola.

Wunderbare ruhige Gegend mit Raum für Inspiration

  • 5 of 5

Es war eine wunderbare Überraschung diese einfache, tolle Location. Auf der eine Seite mit das notwendige um sich wohl zu fühlen, auf der anderen mit eine einfache Verbindung mit Natur und Ort. Ein magisches Blick auf das Meer und die unendlichen Reihen von Weinreben umrahmen das kleine Haus.

Das Haus mit viel Sorgfalt und Liebe unterhalten, war im herrvorragender Zustand und die Eigentümer standen hilfreich zur Verfügung für etlichen Anfragen. Die besondere Atmosphäre würde ich jedem empfehlen, der mit etwas Abstand von den turistischen Orten im engem Kontakt mit Natur und Landschaft auf der Suche nach neuen Inspirationen ist.

Im Umkreis von 3 Km findet man Versorgung, Meer und einige kulturelle Besonderheiten.

Ich werde sicher wieder kommen.

It is right behind Porto Ulisse, a beautiful wild beach that once was an harbor; the nature reserve of Vendicari off the coast of the Ionio sea, consisting of a long streach of immaculate beach sided by Mediterranean vegetation and encompassing archaeological sites; the old and quaint fishermen village of Marzameni, a cozy place bustling with nightlife, good trattorie and a nice beachside. In only twenty minutes drive you can reach: Noto, the UNESCO World Heritage Site and the capital of the Baroque architecture. Its magnificent buildings decorated with white stucco are made with the whimsical yellow pale tufo stone and its color changes with the sunlight. Noto is a desirable destination bustling with bars, restaurants, fashionable stores and monuments; Modica it is another Southern Sicily attraction where you can experience some sort of a fairytale atmosphere. Modica is also famous for the production of its special dark chocolate made according to the ancient Aztec tradition imported by the Spaniards in Sicily in 1600. Scicli, is a Baroque city full of caves and grottos. In one hour drive you can reach the main city Catania and its airport Fontanarossa.
