villa is a charming single storey home for six in the South East of Sicily, with private gardens and pool. Finessed with a ranch-style appeal, complete with timber roofed large veranda and dappled trellis for stylish outdoor living, this abode is a tranquil haven just a few moments from the beach. Clad in a buttercup yellow with olive-green shutters, it is shaded by swaying palm trees and plants spilling out of terracotta pots. The generously-proportioned outdoor spaces elevate this local-style home. The pool is framed by a chic poolside area, dotted with loungers, while the wide veranda is executed for the local pace of life, together with wicker dining set and rustic outdoor kitchen in exposed stone with built-in oven.

Clad in a buttercup yellow with olive-green shutters, it is shaded by swaying palm trees and plants spilling out of terracotta pots. The generously-proportioned outdoor spaces elevate this local-style home. The pool is framed by a chic poolside area, dotted with loungers, while the wide veranda is executed for the local pace of life, together with wicker dining set and rustic outdoor kitchen in exposed stone with built-in oven. The interiors at villa are adorably simple with understated ease throughout. A well-equipped kitchen has all the creature comforts for self-catering, while the open-plan living space is airy and light-filled. Creamy neutrals and contemporary furnishing jostle with original touches such as the fireplace set in exposed brickwork. Unfussy, yet home-like, this space will immediately see guests slip into the Sicilian pace. Three serene bedrooms hit the right note between low-key and comfortable; white-washed with characterful touches such as wall paintings, wicker chairs and an elegant writing desk, with sloping wooden ceilings creating a farmhouse feel. villa is set in an ideal spot on the South-Eastern coast of Sicily, just 500m from a 3km long sandy beach and azure waters of the beautiful coastal stretch between the towns of Pozzallo and the historical Ispica. Pozzallo, a former defence town, today boasts four blue flag beaches and a 90-minute ferry to Malta with a vibrant summer tourist scene. Ispica is known for its extensive prehistoric monuments and caves, while the region as a whole is not overly commercial and offers a taste of authentic Sicilian living. Southern Sicily is relatively undiscovered - yet is full of characterful villages, rugged coastline and a wealth of archaeological interest. villa is set just a few moments from a stunning sandy coastal resort on the South-Eastern coast of Sicily. Known as being one of the finest beaches the region has to offer, the village is a small place of only 200 inhabitants, but draws Sicilians in the summer due to the calibre of its coastline. Nestled midway between Pozzallo and Ispica, visitors can enjoy this unspoilt coastal region, access to Greek ruins, local hilltop towns and sleepy fishing villages. Pozzallo blends the new town with the old. In the old town, the beach-side Torre Cabrera is a 15th-century watchtower that the city is known for. The heart of the town is Piazza della Rimembranza, where locals gather and enjoy the shade of the palm trees. The seafront promenade of Lungomare Pietrenere is ideal for walks. Sunsets from here are beautiful, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes on the water. Set on a hill, Ispica is renowned for its prehistoric caves and rich architecture. It boasts several palaces; among these, the Gothic-style Bruno Palace is worth a visit. The Favi Palace (which was damaged in the earthquake of 1727) and the Alfieri Gambuzza Palace, are known for their beautiful frescos by Olivio Sozzi, a prolific artist whose work adorns many churches and monasteries in Sicily, dating back to the 1700s. The Basilica of Santa Maria which was rebuilt after an earthquake in 1704 boasts opulent Baroque oil paintings. Noto is known for having one of Sicily’s most beautiful historical centres, visited for its baroque architecture, notably the reconstructed 18th-century Noto Cathedral. Worth dropping by for its iced granita coffee, Caffè Sicilia, diagonally opposite the cathedral on Corso Vittorio Emanuele in the middle of town, has been serving locals for over 125 years. <b>Villa Interior</b> <i>Ground Floor </i> - Open-plan living space with fireplace, dining table for 6 guests and well-equipped kicthen with microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher and toaster - Two double bedrooms - Twin bedroom - Three bathrooms <b>Outside Grounds </b> - Swimming pool (12m x 4m, depth: 0.5m - 1.3m), open approximately from April to October - Gardens with lawns framed with trees - Dining veranda - Outdoor kitchen with barbecue - Outdoor shower - Sun loungers - Parasols - Two bikes - Parking <b>Facilities </b>- Wi-Fi - Air conditioning in the bedrooms and living room - Heating - Television - DVD player - Washing machine  - Hair dryers Security deposit: €400 charged to client’s credit card by the owner before arrival and refunded two weeks after departure, subject to full inspection.
