A gorgeous garden with jacuzzi opens straight on to the beach

"...numerous beach options including a private rocky beach a few metres away and another fine sandy public one 100 metres from the property. Together with our children, we discovered a wealth of natural beauty, including octopuses, sea urchins and a small live seahorse." Vincente Casciaro – Spain

This is the ultimate family holiday home, with a simple but comfortable interior, and a large garden and outdoor living area. Guests are welcomed by the owners with open arms and even the odd home-cooked meal. Unspoilt white sandy beaches on your doorstep, the baroque architecture of SE Sicily and the natural beauty of the Vendicari Nature Reserve are just some of the reasons to stay at Apolline.

Located near Ispica, a charming town near Sicily’s southernmost coast, the villa faces directly on to the sea and is just a few steps from one of the area's loveliest sandy beaches. With white-washed walls and dark wooden furniture and beamed ceilings, the villa is extremely stylish and an excellent option for a family or group in search of a villa by the sea.

Outside: The villa sits amidst a large Mediterranean-style garden, with a well-tended lawn, scattered with palm trees and several shady seating areas. To one side of the lawn, steps lead up to a large jacuzzi surrounded by decking with sun loungers and a shady pergola. The garden is overlooked by a really spacious and very well-furnished covered patio, with a superb outdoor kitchen area, and an impressive built-in barbecue. The patio also has access to a second indoor independent kitchenette which is separate from the main villa.

Inside: Bright and welcoming, the villa is simply decorated with dark wooden beamed ceilings, white-washed wooden furniture and elegant dark tiling. Enter via a contemporary kitchen/living area with table and chairs and one sofa. A corridor leads to a lovely double bedroom with large French windows out to the garden, and a separate bathroom with shower. The other bedrooms (a double and a twin which can be converted to a double) and bathroom (with shower) are accessible, via a corridor, from the other side of the living area. All rooms have air-conditioning.

The road to the property weaves alongside a turquoise sea, passing through marshlands and lagoons that are home to flocks of pink flamingos and several species of migratory birds that pass through here during migration season. Reputedly the least visited of all of Sicily’s beaches, these endless expanses of sand and sparkling clean waters are just a hop away – perfect for an early morning dip or a place to sit and watch the sun go down at the end of the day.

In the immediate vicinity, you can take a pleasant stroll in the medieval town of Pozzallo, home to the 15th century Torre Cabrera, but the beaches are the big attraction. The wide sandy Pietrenere Beach is one of only four beaches in Sicily to have Blue Flag status and, with gently shelving sands, is an ideal beach for families with toddlers.

The nearby nature reserves of Vendicari and Cassibile are also home to several unspoilt beaches and are wonderful places for walkers. At the Cassibile Nature Reserve, oriental plane trees, oleander, willow and poplar tower over an undergrowth of sage, oregano, mint and rosemary in dense woods and nature lovers can stumble on rare orchids and dwarf palms.

Culturally, visitors to this area are spoilt for choice. Unravel Syracuse’s extraordinary history through its Greek, Byzantine, Norman and Baroque architecture, visit the splendid baroque town of Noto, and further west, Modica, Scicli and Ragusa.

If you visit in May or June, performances of the Greek tragedies at the theatre in Syracuse are a special treat.

The Jacuzzi is open to guests from April 4th to October 30th.
