The house sits above a small valley dotted with Carob trees and beautifully renovated farmhouses. From the road, a private driveway with gate leads to the house. It’s an old stone house in a warm yellowish colour, the same stone colour used to terrace the hills. From the terrace you can see right to the sea. The owner’s son is an architect and did a fabulous job marrying the original features of the property with modern architecture. The ground floor living rooms, dining room and kitchen all flow into eachother and all have French windows onto the terrace. The master bedroom also lies on the ground floor. It has two bathrooms, one with tub and one with shower. Open stairs with no reiling lead to the upper floor where you will find two bedrooms (twins or doubles) each with its own bathroom. La Casina is fully air-conditioned but also stays naturally cool thanks to the extremely thick walls. The long and narrow lap pool lies on a terrace below the house. Natural shade is provided by the carob trees which cast their shade over a dining terrace and the sunbeds. Close to the pool a small stone shed is used to store the sunbeds. Located in the south east of the Island, the so-called baroque Sicily, La Casina makes a particularly attractive holiday location, combining the seaside with fascinating sightseeing. There are an endless number of baroque towns, all grandeur and grace. These towns were once an architectural chaos of medieval, middle eastern and Punic style. They were shaken into a formal beauty by a devastating earthquake in 1693. New stones were cut, streets redesigned, avenues lengthened and straightened, staircases and grand churches all conceived with baroque grace. Nothing can prepare you to your first view of the enchanted, languorous, little town of Scicli, located just 15 minutes away from La Casina. Take a walk in its central pedestrian street, via Mormino Penna, paved with pale, shiny stones that have the same colour as the palazzos left and right. The city and its surrounding territories have become famous in recent years thanks to the fictional TV drama Montalbano, which sets the novels of the Sicilian writer Andrea Camilleri in these enchanting places. The fictional Vigatà was filmed in Scicli. The beach Playa Grande, located at 6 km from La Casina is part of a protected nature reserve and consists of fine golden sand, washed by the cobalt blue sea. During summer season a beach club lets sunbeds and parasols for the day. The landscape surrounding La Casina is characterized by honey-coloured dry-stone walls delimitating the roads and dividing up the fields, carob trees, fruit and vegetables plantations. The hills are loosely dotted with other farmhouses, most of them restored. Excellent local produce – fruit, vegetable and fish – can be bought in the nearby villages Donnafugata and Marina di Ragusa.
