In the downtown of Donnalucata here it is this Sicily villa, just a stone's throw from the renowned beach of this fishermen village. Leave the car for some days and enjoy the calm, the sun and the friendly dwellers of Donnalucata. This villa is surrounded by a romantic garden with many flowers and a very big pool area. Pool and sea, in short! The interior has 3 big and bright double bedrooms and two bathrooms. The house is absolutely comfortable and well equipped with everything you need for a great Sicilian stay. I have to add no other words to this location. Ask me if you need more info. A good tip: enjoy a meal by the pool and a bath in the night in the near by Sicilian beach of Donnalucata. Holiday to Sicily!

MAMMA'S ANGELS TIP (by Sandra, who will welcome you at this villa): Travellers adore this stay. I'm from Donnalucata and I pass from this great villa when I go to the beach. Then I come back at home from the promenade. Sometimes the sunset take me in another world.

Donnalucata is a lovely place that has ispired a lot of writers, painters and authors.
Here the landscape is coloured in white because of the limestone that draws everything.
Here you can breathe the scent of the sea and here you can enjoy some of the astonishing sunsets you have ever seen.
This is the reason why the painter Guccione painted some of his masterpieces just here in Donnalucata, where the sea and the sky join together as a universal embrace.
In Donnalucata there is the most renowned outdoor fish market (photo) of this area and from here you can also get the ferryboat to Malta.
Just few kilometers away here it is the wonderful Scicli (3 km’s), Unesco’s for Baroque style.
Scicli is located inside a canyon and is surrounded by three hills that one can walk up to the top, touring the narrow streets of the town: real Sicily!
Scicli is the main spot of the renowned fiction Inspector Montalbano and that’s because here you can have a real taste of Sicily.
Ragusa Hybla (wonderful!) and Modica (both Unesco’s forBaroque style) are 15 km’s away.
In Modica don’t forget to enjoy its special chocolate, made from centuries by the Modicani.
Close to Donnalucata is the natural reserve of Irminio river (2 km’s) and further Marina di Ragusa, a nice sea location.
If you love adventure and nature and archaeology, here it is the Cava d’Ispica (photo) a canyon 13 km’s in lenght full of surprises.
Syracuse (photo, Unesco’s), the strongest town of the past (V b.C.), with its archeological masterpieces, lasts 70 km’s
Another town worth a visit is the renowned Noto (Unesco's), almost 40 km's away.
A paradise: Vendicari (40 km’s), birds, Greeks, Byzantines, Romans and beaches !
Now, I give the pen to my wife Silvana: it's time for food.
“Ciao this is Silvana. Fish is my first advice if you are in this places. And also the "testa di turco", the typical sweet in Scicli. Also, the "scacce", a sort of pizza that you can taste also in this area. You are in Sicily and you can’t miss ice-creams (along the promenade of Donnalucata) and a breakfast with granita with brioche (photo). My favourite quick Sicilian meal ? Arancino and Cannolo of course! And if you want to taste something really strange take whatever you want done with the carob that in this area is very popular. Some years ago I realized a documentary, for Italian Public Network (Rai), in which I prepared a menù where the carob was present in all dishes. Even the beer!!!”
