Villa Lo Scoglio This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Fontane Bianche

Description

Look beyond the slightly plain 60’s style exterior of this villa to uncover an absolute jewel of a property. Set on a blissfully peaceful complex with just four other villas, and totally private, the villa has sea views on three sides, a different terrace or veranda for every day of the week and direct access to sparkling turquoise water. Situated on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Fontane Bianche, local highlights include nearby Syracuse, the Vendicari Nature Reserve, the fascinating caves and rock formations at Cava d’Ispica and the best of baroque Sicily at Noto.

All around the villa, wide sweeping terraces, accessed directly from the lounge, look out across plant-filled gardens and over several rocky bays which, even in August, escape the crowds of other resorts. Private steps lead straight down from the villa past dazzling bougainvillea, palm trees and dramatic succulents to the water’s edge where a small ladder is fixed to the rocks.

Ceramics from Caltagirone, candy-striped sofas and sea breezes fill the attractively-furnished lounge which, with its three separate seating areas, is unusually big for a villa for six. The kitchen is large and very generously equipped, with a separate laundry area. There is a downstairs toilet and, on the first floor, two modern, spacious bathrooms. The two bedrooms (double, twin), also on the first floor, have double doors to a balcony that extends the length of the villa, leading up to a stunning rooftop terrace. The double room is air-conditioned and there is a ceiling fan in the twin room.

The area

The seaside resort of Fontane Bianche (so called for the many natural fountains of fresh water) is just a 15 km south of Syracuse & Ortigia and its white sandy beach with equipped lidos has made it a popular tourism destination for the well to do of that prosperous and historical town. In Fontane Bianche guests can find a good selection of well-equipped supermarkets, bar-gelaterie, local pizzerie and nice fresh fish restaurants.

NotoScicli and Ragusa (baroque towns part of UNESCO world heritage) are all within easy drive distance. A little further afield, though still only about an hour away is Catania and the Etna volcano.

Heading south for less than an hours’ drive there is some good walking in the nature reserves of Cassibile and Pantalica and some magnificent deserted beaches at Capo Passero and the Vendicari Natural Reserve where guests may also see migrating flamingos or even turtles, a truly paradise for the bird watching lovers.

View to die for. Comfortable and spacious inside. Huge terraces, with choice of cool shady areas or full-on sun bathing. Fantastic location close to many places of interest and easy drive to Syracuse for evenings out.

Fantastic location; magical to have such stunning views from every window and then to sleep to the sound of the waves. And with so much verandah space and beautifully kept gardens for eating outdoors, or just lounging. The house is very spacious, clean and well furnished. In case you decide to venture away form Lo Scoglio it is convenient for visits to the historic towns of Siracusa, Noto and Ragusa - all offering many quality restaurants with Sicilian cuisine.

We had a fantastic stay at Lo Scoglio. The villa was even better than the website description and the owners couldn't have done more to help. Better suited to couples and families with older children. Location was also excellent - easy to get to Noto, Syracuse and also the beach.

Everything excellent except kitchen could benefit from some updating, especially the electrical wiring. Position superb and peaceful in April. Perched on the point of the headland with amazing views and on a plot which is large with paths around the villa. Not very suitable for young children unless constantly supervised.

After 10 years of renting villas in Italy, I think we’ve found our dream villa! And after several early morning swims in our own ‘private’ bay, we wondered why we had ever bothered with villas with a pool! The interior and exteriors are even more attractive than shown but what the photos can’t possibly convey are the dramatic views and the incredibly peaceful atmosphere. All the terraces (and there are so many!) are totally private – perfect for people-watching the small groups on the rocks below. Fantastic and very spacious lounge and kitchen – quite exceptional for a villa of this size – and the bedrooms and bathrooms modern and extremely comfortable. Top marks to Roberta and Maria who are quite simply the ultimate hosts, welcoming, hospitable and generous.
