About this property

This unique historic property, located between Catania and Siracusa, offers the ideal base for exploring the south east of Sicily. The name Siracusa (meaning abundance of water) comes from the number of springs and rivers in the area. The city developed partly on the promontory-island of Ortigia, and partly on the mainland. The island of Ortigia, now linked to the mainland by a short bridge, was the first part of Siracusa to be settled, and is today a jewel of Sicilian Baroque, although also retaining fascinating traces of its ancient Greek and medieval past. The most interesting area on the mainland is the archeological zone, which includes one of the largest Greek theatres in Italy, which has an annual season of ancient Greek drama. In 2005, together with the cave necropolis of Pantalica, Siracusa was declared by UNESCO to be a world heritage site. The nearest beach (Agnone Bagni) is about 4 kms from the villa, Catania about 20 minutes drive and Mt Etna about one hour.


The house was built in the 17th century as a typical Sicilian masseria. It is surrounded by a large garden, including a perfectly maintained formal Italian garden with many species of plants. Beyond this there are orange groves, olive groves and farmland, as well as a rich variety of Mediterranean plants and trees. There are even archaeological ruins within the grounds, dating back to the 9-8th century BC. The landscape is amazing and there are gorgeous views from the house extending as far as the white peak of Mount Etna and the Mediterranean Sea. An arched entrance leads into the main courtyard flanked on the right by the owners’ house and on the left by 10 bedrooms, each with its own entrance, and each decorated with great taste and simplicity.


Opposite there is a large leisure area with swimming pool (18 x 9m), a spa with Turkish bath and shower, a summer kitchen with barbecue, outdoor dining area and 2 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. All bedrooms have been decorated, furnished and equipped to a high standard with all modern amenities (TV, heating/air conditioning, fridge). Towelling bathrobes and toiletries are provided in the bathrooms.
