Villa La Forma dell'Acqua This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Villas in Sicily in Scicli

Description

Situated in the heart of Donnalucata near Scicli and just 100m from the beach, Villa La Forma dell’Acqua merges modern day luxury with grand traditional Sicilian style. With space for up to 14 people, this is a superb villa for a big gathering of family or friends. The sandy beaches of south east Sicily are on your doorstep and the baroque towns of Scicli, Modica and Ragusa close by.

The villa looks out over extensive tree-filled parkland, awash with Mediterranean plants, lavender and citrus trees and with plenty of areas for outside dining, either alongside the pool or in the dappled shade of large trees. The magnificent pool with hydromassage at the heart of the garden, the barbecue corner and a well-equipped children’s play area make this a very special garden for families with children of all ages.

The interior of the villa is evocative of a bygone age, dotted with antique furniture, paintings and ceramics, but crucially, the two kitchens and bathrooms are contemporary and the villa is extremely well maintained. The main part of the villa is on three levels, housing three double bedrooms, each with a bathroom, and a fourth twin bedroom. There are two living rooms and a large well-equipped kitchen with dining area.

In the other part of the villa, there are two more double bedrooms, each with a bathroom, together with another kitchen. The villa sleeps 12 people comfortably but there is the option of adding two more beds if required.

The area

The town of Donnalucata provides everything you will need for day-to-day living, with a good selection of restaurants, local shops, supermarkets and a bank. You can even buy the catch of the day directly from the fishermen who set up shop in the little port!

The villa is just a few minutes’ walk from the seafront which is accessible via a garden path that weaves through the citrus grove. Donnalucata beach is sandy, with clear seas that are ideal for families thanks to the gently shelving water, and generally quieter and less commercialised than the beach at nearby Marina Ragusa. Other local beaches include Punta Secca, best known for the house used in the TV series of Montalbano, and, to the east, Sampieri and Pozzallo.

The nearby town of Scicli is utterly charming, and a must for Montalbano fans who want to see the fictional police station – in fact, the town hall. The San Calogero restaurant featured in the TV series is not in Scicli but in nearby Ragusa Ibla. Compared to Ragusa and Modica, Scicli feels slightly more off-the-beaten track but has several magnificent churches and a fascinating history.

If you are interested in baroque art and architecture, neighbouring Ragusa Ibla and Modica offer some unforgettable sights. Slightly further afield, Noto and Palazzolo Acreide are also UNESCO World Heritage sites. At Ispica, you can take a pleasant stroll along the 13km-long Le Cave d’Ispica, a leafy gorge and Neolithic burial site which was transformed into cave dwellings in the Middle Ages.

le rapport qualité / prix est très bon. La villa est magnifique et est très bien agencée; intérieur et extérieur avec piscine, terrasse et parc. La proximité de la mer est également un excellent atout. Traitement de mon dossier de manière professionnelle. Pas de mauvaise surprise par rapport aux informations reçues.

Quick, efficient, high quality service. Absolute fabulous house in the middle of Donalucata. Paradise tucked away behind lots of green. Fabulous rooms, bathrooms and amenities. The hosts Guglielmo and Melina made us feel more than welcome and were absolutely fantastic!!

It is difficult to overstate how wonderful is this villa and it’s large garden.The owners were there to welcome us and give us a guided tour. Our party consisted of 3 generations and the facilities and the location were perfect for us. We were within walking distance of the beach, of a good selection of restaurants and food shops. Excellent communication from Wish Sicily over an 18 month Covid delayed booking.Any queries were rapidly responded to and resolved.

Un lieu de vacances proche de la perfection. Une maison superbe, soigneusement décorée et abondamment équipée (double cuisine, air conditionné dans chaque pièce, barbecue haut de gamme, transats confortables et en nombre suffisant), idéalement située, en plein centre de la petite ville et à 100 mètres de la mer. Mais ce qui est réellement exceptionnel, c'est le vaste jardin magnifiquement arboré où alternent les coins ensoleillés et ombragés. La tranquillité absolue dans un site unique où tout est pensé pour le confort des hôtes et l'harmonie du séjour. Toutes les prestations sont haut de gamme et les propriétaires sont charmants et très attentionnés. Un bien rare qui a beaucoup contribué à la réussite totale de cette semaine de vacances.

It’s everything the description and reviews say. A place our family loved with its park-like garden, well equipped kitchens (yes, both of them) and lovely bedrooms and bathrooms. We enjoyed the easy access to the sea and Donnalucata itself, a seaside town with a workaday feel. Can’t wait to return. Any downsides? The coffee machine didn’t work but it was replaced the same day without a murmur - typical of the way guests are looked after by Melina and Sandra.
