This house, once inhabited by fishermen, is situated in the center of Sampieri, a few meters from the sea.
Take your bath towel and have a swim at the beautiful bay with sandy beach surrounded with Mediterranean flora. The area surrounding the house was a set - location of the popular TV series " Montalbano". You are also in an excellent position to visit the Valley of Baroque. The house is restored respecting the historic features and using the local stone of Comiso, Sicilian terracotta and ancient ceramics of Caltagirone.
The owner, a Sicilian watercolorist, furnished these apartments with care and meticulous choice of each accessory with the desire of making your stay unforgettable. And when you get inside you’ll feel the spirit of the Mediterranean!
After you climb up the stairs decorated with stones, the second apartment in this house is waiting for you. There is a living with comfortable double sofa bed and television. It has also air condition. The kitchen corner is well equipped with table and chairs. There is also the room with bunk bed (it has air condition) and the bathroom with shower. The terrace is another cute detail: among beautiful old roofs and below the blue sky enjoy a Sicilian meal or watch the seagulls flying! The marine design of this apartment makes this space cozy and wellcoming.

I live in the most beautiful town in the word, Scicli , a bit because it is said by the great novelist Elio Vittorini and a bit because it’s my homeland that I love for its naturalistic and artistic
beauties and, most of all, for its landscapes, its light, its blue sea, its golden beaches!
Here you can find the so proverbial ospitality of the Sicilians: we live peacefully and in harmony.
Scicli, together with Modica (5 km’s away) and Ragusa (10 km’s) it’s a Unesco’s word site for Baroque style.
All the town its a masterpiece of what we could call the real Sicily, in fact Scicli is the spot for the well-known movie fiction Inspector Montalbano.
The via Mornino Penna is the hearth of the city and here is a beautiful Museo del costume.
Don’t forget to visit at least one of the three hills that overlook Scicli. You can go up to them walking through narrow alleys that recall the visitors a very ancient Sicily.
Inside the town have a visit to the Chiafura, a sort of ancient Scicli, with dwellings carved in the rock where once lived our great-grandparents
Our golden beaches are among the most famous in Sicily: Sampieri (5 km’s), Cava d’Aliga (5 km’s), Donnalucata (photo, 5 km’s) and Marina di Ragusa (8 km’s).
If you love nature this are my suggestions: Irminio river (5 km’s), the lakes of Cava Grande canyon (50 km’s) and the astonishing Vendicari a paradise for birdwatchers.
Two other Unesco’s, unmissable, masterpieces not so far: Syracuse (70 km’s), the capital of the Mediterranean in V b.C; and the famous Noto (50 km’s)
