Villa Spiga is a magnificent old country estate situated in the heart of baroque Sicily with captivating panoramic views over rolling countryside. Spacious, charming and beautifully presented, this is a delightful place in which to unwind and relish the gentler pace of rural Sicilian life. The house is decorated and furnished with great style and taste and includes all modern conveniences. Outside, the magnificent swimming pool sits in lawn and is overlooked by sun baked terraces.

Set against a backdrop of golden wheat fields and lush almond and olive groves stretching as far as the eye can see, this wonderful house has adapted to modern living without losing any of its original character. Low-slung and unobtrusive in spite of its elevated position, the villa’s many charms include a large, inviting swimming pool surrounded by manicured lawns, swaying palms and ancient cypress trees.
Terracotta flooring laid throughout is deliciously cool underfoot during hot summer days while lofty ceilings and pristine, whitewashed walls create a wonderful sense of space and light. A generously proportioned yet cosy lounge is comfortably furnished with an array of plump sofas, armchairs and painted armoires, a traditional fireplace tucked away in one corner.
There’s a delightfully authentic kitchen, complete with farmhouse-style table and chairs, range cooker and dark wood cabinets, along with a modern fridge and freezer. French doors lead outside to a shaded dining terrace located beside the magnificent pool where you can linger all afternoon over a delicious family lunch in true Sicilian style.
Villa Spiga is very much a rural property, with patchwork farmland and sleepy Sicilian villages dotted around the surrounding countryside between the Iblean Mountains and the south eastern coastline. To sample some delicious local cuisine, head for nearby Noto or Rosilini, and be sure to plan for at least one day’s visit to the historic coastal city of Siracusa with its wealth of ancient temples and famous amphitheatre. It’s a joy to explore the area and revel in its culture before heading back for a refreshing dip in that wonderful private pool and the tranquillity of your beautiful villa.

“I love the taste and style that is evident through out this house, and the lovely swimming pool is one of the best I've seen. Even the front of the house offers something other than just a driveway and entrance with superb views on offer from the railed property boundary and the terrace here offers a very relaxing place to take in a good book on an evening.”Mark Contracting staff
