What to say about this fascinating aristocratic villa from the 19th century? It will immediately immerse you in Sicilian history. The villa shows us in every minimal detail the past and life of a Sicilian aristocratic family.
It is situated in the countryside of Modica, a quiet and peaceful area but also near famous art cities as Noto, Siracusa, Ragusa and archeological sites as Cava D’Ispica. The seaside and beaches are just few km away.
Two columns invite you to enter the beautiful yard. At the center the path leads to the main door and all around there is a typical garden made of flowerbeds and dozens of palms.
At the back side of the villa there is a pool with showers, sun recliners and gazebo with table and chairs. A charming corner covered with vine pergola gives you refresh as the patio located in front of the kitchen with barbeque for your Sicilian meals.
The villa is made of natural materials from the area and preserves its original look: you will find famous limestone from Modica, the floor made of antic pitch stone and Sicilian hand made ceramics tiles. In the house there are vaulted ceilings with ancient frescoes.
The furniture is antique but restored and well preserved with typical wrought iron beds: are you sure not to be in a movie scene?
The villa has two floors. On the ground floor there is a comfortable living with sofas, satelite television and fireplace, the bathroom, dining room and built-in kitchen covered with ceramic tiles. The kitchen shows us how it looked decades ago: it has an old hand-sculpted stone sink, freshwater cistern, wood burning oven and copper utensils. Just behind there is a functional kitchenette and laundry room.
From the main entrance the beautiful stairs (pitch stone) invite you to the first floor. There are balconies overlooking the garden and the endless countryside.
