Enjoy your stay in style. Modernly finished south facing 3 bedroom & 4 bathroom rural villa with shared pool with another 2 bedroom facing the forest, 5 minutes from village core. Large outdoor area with BBQ, sun loungers, dining table, gazebo & large sofa. Free Wi-Fi. LED TV and fully equipped kitchen. All bedrooms with great country views and modern en-suite bathrooms.
A three bedroom & four bathroom private country villa luxuriously finished with modern decor throughout. Set on a plot area of 6000 square metres, hidden between mature olive and fruit trees, the villa enjoys total privacy from the street and the best views of the forest in front and the hills on the sides - over 180 degrees of nature and a lot of sun. The south-facing position of the property makes it full of natural sun light during the whole day.
The main entrance to the property is through a gate from a secondary street. A winding small and private path leads to the villa and its outdoor area. Ample parking space is available.
The garden and olive groves are well kept and taken care of.
The large paved outdoor space in front of the villa enjoys an extendable teak dining table with chairs, four teak sun loungers and over 20 square metres wooden gazebo with a five-seater outdoor sofa set.
This modern rural villa is ideal for guests looking for a relaxation holiday in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by nature, peace and tranquility. An ideal pace to gain energy and spend a couple of days away from the everyday routine and chaos.
Even though the property is situated on the outskirts, it is only 7 minutes' drive from the village of Giarratana, 5 minutes from San Giacomo, 20 minutes from the picturesque city of Modica and 25 minutes from the city of Ragusa and the baroque Ragusa Ibla. Being set nearly in the middle of the province of Ragusa, it is a very good base for exploring this great Sicilian province, its Hyblean mountains and its large sandy beaches. A car is a must.
The spacious interior of the villa makes it very comfortable for 6 and even 8 people.
The large kitchen is well equipped with all the appliances including: electric kettle, toaster, coffee making machine, electric hob, cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven.
Cutlery items are for eight persons including beer glasses, wine glasses and champagne glasses. The extendable dining table inside has a capacity of six seats with the possibility of eight. Large glass apertures lead to the outdoor dining area, making it very bright and fresh. All glass doors in the kitchen have controllable sunblock roller blinds to protect the inside from the sun during summer and leave it fresher throughout the day.
When the weather is nice and sunny, enjoy dining outside the kitchen on a teak extendable table underneath a large umbrella to protect from the sun during the mornings and afternoons. One can enjoy cooking outside on the stone barbecue near the kitchen.
The large open living area downstairs is equipped with white 3 seater & 2 seater leather sofas, large modern ethanol fireplace (ideal for the cold season) 42inch 3D LED TV with digital terrestrial channels (mostly Italian channels), BluRay DVD player, unique shape coffee table and modern stainless steel/wooden staircase leading to the upper bedrooms. There is also satellite internet with WiFi available for free to be used by our guests.
The 3 seater sofa bed can be converted to another double bed. An extra single folding bed is also available for use.
The villa has three comfortable bedrooms:
Bedroom 1 downstairs with a double bed, corner wardrobe and an en-suite large bathroom with walk-in mosaic shower and bath. A large sliding door leads directly to the outdoor relaxation area. This bedroom is equipped with air conditioning.
