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.

Stunning and spacious property with amazing views, even nicer than on the pictures! Very relaxing and peaceful with gorgeous terraces and balconies. AC is only in one of the bedrooms but there is always a breeze by the sea so not a problem for us. Roberta and her mum Maria are very friendly and welcoming and speak perfect English. The platform just below the villa is super fun, kids and adults alike had a great time jumping and snorkeling. Would love to go back!

Excellent villa with lots of room and good facilities. Fantastic views to sea and a great base to explore the South East of Sicily. Booking was simple and efficient.

Great location, right by the sea. A large property, with a lovely patio where the sea breeze, redolent of thyme and jasmine and bougainvillea, blows so refreshingly, that oft times you just don't want to leave. There are terraces atop terraces and still more terraces with a sweeping view of the sea - and of the Milky Way above. Inside the furnishings were rather basic, but clean and tasteful. I loved the kitchen. Brace for mosquitoes but don't be afraid of the heat: the patio breeze is so refreshing! The rock beach below has unbelievably beautiful water (at its best - and calmest - in the early morning), but the rock slates are rough - take a soft mattress along with you. The property is an area studded with archaeological, historical and artistic gems (Ortigia, Noto, Modica, Scicli, Palazzolo Acreide...). Morning at the beach, evenings out exploring. Perfect! Dealing with Wish Sicily was smooth, easy and straightforward - a real pleasure. We haven't had a single problem during our delightful stay. Staff was courteous, efficient and made you feel like family. Roberta (and mother) are fantastic!

A beautiful place! A couple small things could have been better the screen to the second bedroom was torn and not flush to the ground letting in a mosquito or 2 in the night. But a really wonderful setting altogether.
