Overview

Beautifully restored, Filara is a characteristic property set in authentic rural Sicily. With open stonework that is typical of this area in Sicily, Filara is a traditional property with all modern comforts. A great base for exploring the extraordinary surrounding area, Filara mixes style, comfort, modernity and beautiful views to create a wonderful holiday villa in Sicily.

Property

Outside: The simplicity of Filara's external areas create a charming environment to enjoy the Sicilian sunshine. Alongside the villa is a charming veranda with a lovely dining table and seating area. There's even an ancient olive tree that adds extra Sicilian character! Here you can while away the hours taking in the view below of the vines, or enjoying delicious al fresco meals. There's a barbecue below where you can cook local produce. On a lower level there's a swimming pool surrounded by sunloungers that's perfect for cooling off during a hot day!

Inside: Walk into the villa from the veranda and you will find yourself in a small seating area with a comfy sofa and TV. Two stylish bedrooms lead off from this room. Both have comfortable double beds, ensuite bathrooms with showers and walk-in wardrobes. From the TV area you can also reach the kitchen, which has all the equipment you need as well as a dining table. The kitchen has French windows that take you straight out to the veranda.

A second, larger living area is next to the kitchen. This bright room has direct access to the veranda through large, light-giving windows, as well as comfortable sofas that are perfect for a quiet moment inside. The third and final double bedroom is found off this sitting room. This stylish double bedroom has exposed brick walls, an ensuite bathroom with shower, and access outside through French windows.

Local Sights

This part of Sicily is truly blessed with an amazing coastline full of beautiful beaches. There are so many to choose from. Marina di Ragusa is very close to the villa, with a lovely sandy beaches and a good selections of bars, local shops and pizzerias. Donnalucata is another typical seaside town for lazy days by the sea.

Visit the Vendicari Nature Reserve for incredible natural beauty and tranquil sandy beaches. This is a wonderful place to really get away from it all. Calamosche Bay is a particular treasure if you want picture-perfect sand and blue water.

The Baroque architecture found in south-east Sicily is second to none, and Filara is close to many of the most splendid towns in the area. Scicli is the closest to the villa. This small town is a real gem. There are beautiful palaces and churches to be seen, whilst the town is also full of amazing restaurants, picturesque piazzas and stylish bars.

Modica and Ragusa are two other Baroque towns that should not be missed. Both of these towns have exceptional architecture that will leave you breathless. Modica is also famous for its chocolate, made using an ancient recipe. Ragusa is a city of two parts, with Ragusa Ibla being almost too pretty with its winding streets and fantastic views.


Local Experiences

A boat trip along Sicily's south coast is a wonderful way to spend the day. You can swim in clear waters and enjoy the beautiful scenery during a fun and relaxed day under the sun!

Foodies will love Sicily's gastronomy - it's a highlight for many! One enjoyable experience is taking part in a cookery class. You can learn the tricks of the trade and impress your friends back home with authentic Sicilian recipes.

Another wonderful day trip is visiting a local winery. Sicily produces some delicious wines all over the island, and the south-east is known for it deep, dark reds. Take a trip to a vineyard and learn about wine production in the area and then try the local samples.

If golf is your passion then you can play a round at the Donnafugata Gold Resort which is close by. The 18 hole course is one of Sicily's most appreciated golf clubs!

Extras

The pool is open to guests from 13th April to 26th October.

As Filara is a villa set in a working rural environment, there are some periods of the year when the vines are covered for protection.
