Villa Ossidiana is a beautifully designed villa surrounded by lawns shaded with giant olive trees and a gazebo, which, together with the veranda and barbecue area make it a house perfectly adapted to contemporary summer living. Even in-side the gardens continue to play their part, clearly visible through the huge win-dows of the open plan living room and kitchen. Also on the ground floor are two bedrooms — one with ensuite bathroom, the other with ‘visible’ bathtub — both with windows looking onto the garden. On the upper floor is a studio zone with sea views from its terrace. There is also an independent annexe with its own entrance reached up an outdoor spiral staircase, comprising an open-plan living-room and kitchen, a double be-droom and bathroom.

We like

The feeling of spaciousness, light and the sensation of being outdoors even when you are indoors! Following the footpath along the coast, and finding a solitary rock to sunbathe on and swim from in total peace. Popping into the lovely little fishing village of Brucoli for a wonderful fish dinner in one of its restaurants. The outdoor kitchen — which makes cooking so relaxing! One of our best eve-nings was grilling freshly caught fish at home. Taking cooking lessons from a local in the outdoor kitchen! Vania organised for us to visit a palazzo in Siracusa where we had dinner with one of the last, aristocratic Sicilian Leopards! The owner, Enrico, has a beautiful restored wooden ketch, on which we went for an evening’s sail around Ortigia, with an aperitivo and dinner on board. Unforgettable

We think

Villa Ossidiana is an ideal place to spend a holiday that combines beaches, art and culture. Siracusa, the Pantalica gorge and the Baroque towns of the Val di Noto are all UNESCO World Heritage sites, and all easily accessible in day trips. Siracusa is very close — making the villa an ideal and tranquil base for anyone coming to Sicily for the annual season of ancient tragedies in its Greek theatre. The annexe is a self contained studio flat — making the villa ideal for a large fa-mily or group of friends, who want some degree of privacy. The location is ideal for anyone who wants to be near the sea, but able to explore the interesting cultural sites.
