Rocca Di Pietra This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Ragusa

Description

Immersed in a rural landscape with views over the sparkling sea, Rocca di Pietra is a jewel of a property, with atmosphere, charm and space in abundance. The 6-bedroom villa with infinity pool is situated just 7km from Marina di Ragusa and Donnalucata on Sicily’s south east coast, making it equally well placed for a beach holiday or for exploring the extraordinary baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa and Scicli.

The garden perfectly reflects the landscape, with views that stretch across a patchwork of olive trees and green fields crisscrossed by dry stone walls, towards the sea. Tiered terraces, with sunbeds shaded by gently fluttering canopies, overlook the stunning infinity pool, while a sheltered barbecue corner and sink provide the ultimate outdoor kitchen with a view!

The villa comprises two separate buildings, with blue-shuttered windows and doors, tiled terraces and a scattering of small tables and chairs. In the first of the two buildings, the contemporary veranda-style living space is furnished with sofas and has spectacular views through floor to ceiling retractable glass doors on three sides. Dine al fresco, overlooking the pool and sea, from the shaded terrace, which runs the length of the building and can be accessed directly from the kitchen. The attractive kitchen, with a second dining table, features traditional Sicilian tiled flooring and a high beamed ceiling. The building also includes a toilet, utility room and one double bedroom (with independent outside access) with bathroom.

The second building comprises 5 double bedrooms, all with bathrooms. Brightly-painted blue doors lead from the outside terrace into four adjacent bedrooms. A fifth bedroom, also with its own independent outside access, has an interconnecting door with one of the four rooms, providing a convenient option for a family with two children. Bedrooms are bright and airy, with lofty vaulted ceilings, and decorated in crisp whites and soft shades of powder blue. The spacious rooms are elegantly furnished, with antique Sicilian furniture and featuring rustic stone walls and wooden flooring. Original features have also been retained in the bathrooms, set alongside contemporary fittings.

The area

The villa is within easy driving distance of some superb beaches, including those at Marina di Ragusa, Cava d’Aliga and Sampieri and several of the beaches between Marina di Ragusa and Pozzallo have received the prestigious ‘Bandiera Blu’ seal of approval. The sandy beach at Donnalucata is generally quieter than Marina di Ragusa and its gently shelving water makes it ideal for families with younger children. For Montalbano fans, the fictional detective’s iconic beachfront home is a short drive away at Punta Secca.

You’ll find plenty of local shops, bars and restaurants at either Marina di Ragusa, or Donnalucata where you can also buy the catch of the day directly from the fishermen in the little port.

Alternatively, head inland to the UNESCO-protected towns of Ragusa Ibla and Modica for some memorable baroque art and architecture, and an excellent selection of restaurants. Although smaller, the town of Scicli is also very charming and highly recommended. It is also, of course, home to the fictional police station in the Montalbano series.

Slightly further afield, Noto and Palazzolo Acreide are also UNESCO World Heritage sites, while at Ispica, you can take a pleasant stroll through the leafy gorge at Le Cave d’Ispica.

Abbiamo soggiornato una settimana in questa nuova struttura e ci siamo trovati benissimo. La piscina ha una vista molto bella sulla vallata e sul mare che fa da sfondo. Le stanze sono ben arredate e ben organizzata con aria condizionata e tv. Molto belli ed eleganti gli ambienti a.comune. Tutto sobrio e molto funzionale. I proprietari sono molto attenti ad ogni esigenza e suggerimento. Cordialità e simpatia sono una loro fondamentale caratteristica. È un posto che consiglio perché a metà strada tra ill mare e le città d'arte da visitare nei dintorni.

Tutto molto bello. I proprietari gentilissimi e disponibili. Peccato che la settimana è volata via. Bellissima anche Ragusa Ibla.
