1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
This lovely cottage is about 40 sqm and it is entirely covered from a big and secular carob tree and it is 100 mt far from a wonderful very private sand beach. From the house you can hear the sea-waves and the beach is directly accessible by a pathway through the gardens. An added bonus for outdoor eating is the shaded terrace and a barbecue area where you can enjoy outdoor dining surrounded by nature.

This quaint, no fuss furnished cottage, has everything you need for a great stay in Sicily. There's one bedroom, a combined living room with a double sofa bed and a fully equipped kitchen, a tiled bathroom with stand up shower.
In the cold month you will have a nice air pellet stove with a charming fire view.
Perfect for couples or family with maximum two children.

Excellent location - quiet and peaceful yet easy access to main roads; railway station a 10-15 minute walk. Pizzeria 5 minute walk; supermarket 5 minute drive. Well equipped cottage with direct access to beach. Whilst there are two other villas in the grounds they are all separate and well screened. Dario is very friendly and helpful and fluent in English. more

We stayed in Carob Tree Cottage for a very enjoyable week - it's one of 4 properties on Dario's estate, but none are close by so it feels private. Dario is the perfect host, and very friendly. Speaks excellent English, and also patient enough to let me practise my basic Italian! The cottage is small, but perfectly comfortable for 2... more
