The extensive grounds are beautifully landscaped, with soaring trees and century-old carob trees encircling a circular swimming pool.

The villa lies at the centre of the ‘park’ and comprises a main house and two annexes, all built in a typical Mediterranean style, with shady terraces for outdoor living, and lovely views of the gardens from inside. The grounds (or parco, in Italian) are full of luxuriant vegetation, with lots of shade, a children’s play area, barbeque zone, outdoor dining room – and even a small lake. There is also a large, circular swimming pool, outdoor shower – and a bowling green! On the ground floor of the main house is a large living room with TV and sound system, a lounge with bar area, a billiards room, with access through French windows to a furnished, covered terrace. There is also a large kitchen with a guest bathroom. A wooden staircase leads up to six double bedrooms (all with ensuite bathroom). The two annexes each have a double bedroom nd bathroom.

We like

That the villa is huge,  and the grounds really are like having your own private park, with lake, pool and play area — ideal for an extended-family holiday, with lots of children – or for a group of friends. It is one of those villas designed to let everyone do what they want, without disturbing anyone else – the kids can play, grandparents can listen to music or watch TV, dad can make a barbeque and mum can laze in the pool. The location is also perfect for a large group of family, where people have different tastes or interests. There are the sandy beaches of Marina di Modica and Sampieri (an Inspector Montalbano location); Baroque towns like Modica, Scicli and Ragusa; magnificent country walks to be had in the Cava Grande, Cava d’Ispica or Vendicari nature reserve; and you could even take a day trip to Malta!

We think

The villa is really comfortable, the decor tasteful and the grounds are beautiful, but it is also refreshingly unpretentious, and practical –we can’t think of better place for a big family holiday.
