Casa del Carrubo This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Noto

Description

This two-bedroom villa sits amongst beautiful gardens, with a private pool and heated Jacuzzi, close to the fishing village of Calabernardo in south east Sicily. Ideal for a couple or a family with young children, it is just 1km from the gorgeous Lido di Noto beach and within easy reach of Noto, Syracuse and the baroque towns of Modica and Ragusa.

The landscaped garden is extremely spacious, with sweeping terraces, lawns and ample space for a family who prefers to spend as much time outside as possible. The pool is the focal point of the garden, surrounded by paved sun terraces and lawns and overlooked by a terracotta tiled terrace, dotted with cactus and bougainvillea-filled pots, and with a fabulous outdoor jacuzzi. This is definitely a garden for outdoor dining – in addition to the table and chairs, there is a sink, barbecue and wood-fired oven.

The former farmhouse is set on one floor, characterised by original wooden beams and white Comiso stone. The living room is open plan with a sofa and small kitchen area with a fridge/freezer and microwave. The main bedroom (double bed) has large windows that look out over the garden on two sides, a small sitting area and, in common with the second bedroom, direct access to the garden. There is one bathroom, with shower cubicle.

There is a nice restaurant/pizzeria with a bar, at walking distance from the villa, where guests can dine when wish to drink a few glasses of wine without having to worry about driving back home.

The area

The beaches in this corner of Sicily are amongst the best on the island. The beach at Lido di Noto is within walking distance and the magnificent beaches that fringe the Vendicari Nature Reserve, including the crescent-shaped sandy Calamosche beach, are around 12km away.

The village of Calabernardo has a couple of restaurants and a grocery shop, with more choice available at Lido di Noto. Noto (6km), which is the nearest main town, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its magnificent baroque palaces and churches.

The villa is a short drive (4km) from the motorway which links the cities of Syracuse to the north, and Modica, Ragusa and, for Montalbano fans, Scicli to the west. If you are interested in the ancient world, you may also enjoy a visit to the Villa del Tellaro, just south of Noto, where the Roman floor mosaics are less spectacular than those at Villa del Casale, but nonetheless very beautiful.

Beautiful property in semi rural Sicily. Amazing grounds, stunning building. Just an absolute paradise for me and my family. Thank you so much for the warm greeting and hospitable service. A class act. Missing it every day!

An utterly heavenly stay - thank you very much. We travelled as two adults and two young children (2&4). The villa and grounds were stunning and very well kept, and the added bonus of chickens and fresh eggs made the boys very happy! Perfect location to reach surrounding beaches and to get to Noto, Avola and Syracuse for beach trips. The Flower Festival was on whilst we were there whcich was an added bonus - but rather busy!! We enjoyed playing in the garden, making use of the outdoor kitchen and BBQ, and making fresh lemon and orange juice every morning. The pool was a bit chilly (as expected) and we had bought wetsuits for the little ones but once in we were able to enjoy it for half and hour or so before jumping into the hot tub!!) Having the bikes was great and they went out of their way to provide an additional childs bike seat - we would cycle down to the beach or nearby restaurants for ice-cream and pizza. Also a huge surprise to turn up to such a generously stocked fridge and store cupboard with wines and delicious local produce. Extremely spoily and unexpected. Everything was so delicious. Thank you for making our stay so special we had a very happy time.

Casa del Carrubo is a lovely Oasis created by Giuseppe and Pinuccia, The Villa is very comfortable, nicely decorated, furnished and well equipped. The outdoor space is gorgeous, beautiful well tended grounds, very thoughtfully landscaped and plenty of different sitting and relaxing areas. We didn't end up using the pool as our trip was a bit early in the season and the water was still quite chilly (first week April) and unfortunately the weather was quite cold and wet for much of our stay - however on the warm sunny days we used the outdoor kitchen and jacuzzi and just enjoyed relaxing in this lovely place. The hosts are rightly very proud of the haven they have created and are very generous. On arrival at our villa we found in the fridge lots of local Sicilian produce and treats - all delicious, plus lots of store cupboard items too - which meant we hardly ended up eating elsewhere. Another bonus were the lemon and orange trees and fresh herbs in the garden - we were encouraged to pick any fruit we wanted - which we did - fresh squeezed orange & lemon juice daily, to try to rid ourselves of the colds we had brought with us from England. Resident friendly chickens provided us with fresh eggs daily too. Conveniently located for Catania airport (an hour away) and to explore Syracusa and Noto, other hilltop towns, nature reserves and the sandy beach about 1km away. This area seems to be quite quiet and less set up for tourists than others, particularly at this time of the year. Would recommend having a car if you want to explore, but the Villa and grounds are such a haven and if you are lucky with the weather, I doubt you would want to leave it very often! Noto and Marina di Avola seemed to be the closest places for restaurants and bars. We very much enjoyed our stay and couldn't have been made more welcome by Giuseppe and Pinuccia - even when our electricity tripped (which was very easily fixed) and also returning our deposit at 5am, as we had an early onward flight when we were leaving.

Easy communication and accurate accommodation information. Very comfortable and well equipped house, with lovely hot tub and beautiful grounds. Well located for exploring the local area and easily within reach of Etna/Taormina if you want to head North.

If you want a villa to totally relax in then this is the one !!!! We were greeted by Giuseppe and family and some homemade Sicilian delights (thank you Pinuccia they were delicious). The villa is set in large well kept gardens with a Jacuzzi and very inviting pool. Giuseppe and family were the perfect hosts even helping out with the hire of an extra adult bicycle.(sorry Salvatore that you had to ride the bike up the hills) We used the villa bicycles all the time to see the area and to get to the nearby restaurants. The villa is spacious and comfortable to live in with an outdoor seating area which was well used. Giuseppe and Claudia even turned up to say goodbye which was nice. We left feeling we had made new friends.
