Villa FicalinniNoto, Sicily
Villa Ficalinni is a stylish, contemporary villa in a picturesque, hillside setting, near Noto, one of Sicily’s most beautiful baroque towns. Stunning sandy beaches and the glorious Vendicari nature reserve are within easy reach of this villa, making it a wonderful location for a holiday with family or friends.
Surrounded by gently rolling hills and extensive private grounds with cactus, carob and olive trees, the villa is ideal for those seeking rural tranquillity. An inviting pool, a lush garden and air conditioning keep you cool in summer while sublime views over the untouched countryside to the sea beyond is a stunning backdrop to al fresco lunches, barbecues and drinks on the terrace.
Step inside the villa into a light-filled, open plan living space with a sleek modern kitchen, dining area and sitting area with large sofas. It feels welcoming and spacious with its smooth grey floors, neutral tones and contemporary sleek furnishings, softened with traditional wooden beamed ceilings, antique wood doors and ceramics.
Large glass doors from here open to the main dining terrace and garden, the setting for summer meals together whilst admiring the scenery. Enjoy a drink or barbecue here or at the second terrace on the other side of the villa with its seating area, cushions and parasols.
The villa is a single storey structure, so the three bedrooms are on the same floor as the living space. There are two double bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathrooms with showers. The third bedroom has a double sofa bed, desk and printer so it doubles up as a workspace if need be. It also has its own bathroom with a shower.
The delights of Noto, local restaurants and shops are an easy 10-minute drive away while the beaches of the Vendicari nature reserve are just 15 minutes by car. Interesting day trips include visiting magnificent cities such as Siracusa, trekking across Mount Etna and exploring chic Taormina
