Gisolfo is a very appealing villa, with a pool and sea view, in an atmospheric rural setting close to Ragusa and the spectacular sandy beaches of south-east Sicily.
The interior is simple but stylish, with exposed stone walls and tasteful furnishings. An open plan living area, with kitchen and dining area, looks out over the pool and sweeping countryside via huge floor-to-ceiling windows. Bedrooms (two doubles) are modestly furnished and there are two bathrooms, each with a shower. The living room has a sofa bed for two extra guests.
Outside, the pool area is on one side of the villa, with spacious sunbathing terraces and magnificent views. To the other side of the villa, cool coastal breezes make the outdoor covered kitchen (with barbecue) and dining area an idyllic spot for al fresco dining.
The villa is an excellent option for honeymooners and small families, and an ideal base for exploring the superb Baroque towns of the Val di Noto, Siracusa and the reserve of Vendicari.

The property is ideally situated both for trips to the sea – 10 minutes’ drive away in Sampieri, where the beach is slightly wilder and fringed with dunes, though there are many other beaches along the coast within easy driving distance which are great for surfers and windsurfers and have sun beds and umbrella for rent - and to some of Sicily’s most beautiful towns: the Baroque UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Scicli, Modica, Ragusa and Noto. Siracusa and its ancient Greek Theatre is also within easy driving distance as are the quiet beaches of the Nature Reserve at Vendicari.
The beaches in the area of Pozzallo and Marina di Ragusa have received several consecutive "Bandiere Blu", attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence.
For the best views around, head for Ragusa Ibla and take in the breath-taking sight of the city from the dizzy heights of the Chiesa di S. Maria delle Scale.
Also nearby is the pretty fishing village of Marzamemi which hosts an International Film Festival in July but is worth visiting at any time for its superb seafront fish restaurants and its lively piazza. Slightly further afield is Catania and Mount Etna.

Beautiful and well appointed villa with a contemporary feel. Outside the pool was excellent and well maintained and there was a lovely patio and covered terrace. The owners' representative was very welcoming and helpful with excellent English.

L’intérieur n’est pas très grand mais pratique et avec l’air conditionne, les extérieurs sont magnifiques. La villa est très bien placée entre la mer et la superbe ville de Ragusa.
