Overview

This is a superb villa for families looking to combine a beach holiday with exploring the treasures of south east Sicily. With three bedrooms, there is plenty of space for everyone, but it is the large garden, which opens directly on to a secluded sandy beach, that makes it really special. 

Property

Comprising a main house and separate studio cottage, Giada is an excellent option for families travelling with grandparents or teenagers looking for a bit of independence. Excellent outdoor cooking and dining facilities contribute to a great al fresco holiday experience.

Outside: There is a large covered patio with dining table at the back of the house but the high spot of the villa is the superb garden at the front of the villa which leads directly on to a picture postcard sandy beach. Sitting areas include a covered patio, with ceiling fans, which overlooks the lawn and a separate gazebo, with a dining-table for six (and fridge). A simple outdoor kitchen, with a barbecue, pizza oven, sink and camping stove is, for most of our guests, a real highlight and a fun and relaxed way to prepare meals in the heat of the summer. Barbecue locally-caught fish, bake your own ‘focaccia’ and linger over leisurely al fresco meals under the shade of the gazebo.

As you continue down towards the beach, towering palm trees are dotted round the garden, providing shade for stone benches, sun loungers and tables and chairs. At the end of the garden, a gate leads into a sandy private fenced-off area, between the beach and garden, which has sun loungers, an umbrella and garden swing bench.

Inside: Entrance into the main villa is from the patio directly into the living/dining area which has a sea-view and is furnished with a sofa and fully-fitted open plan kitchen with a dining-table. The two bedrooms are situated at either side of the living-room: the single bedroom has a bathroom (with shower), and the master bedroom is en suite (with shower), overlooking the garden and sea beyond.

The adjacent cottage is an excellent option for grandparents or couples looking for a little more independence. The cottage is accessed via the covered patio at the back of the villa and comprises an open plan living space with a double bed, sofa, kitchenette and a bathroom with shower.

There is a small area with a washing machine situated between the main house and cottage.

Local Sights

Giada's proximity to so many fantastic beaches makes it the ideal villa for beach-lovers. You really will be spoilt for choice, especially with such a beautiful beach right at the end of the garden!

Some great beaches can be found in nearby Pozzallo, Marina di Modica and Donnalucata. The Vendicari Nature Reserve has stunning white sandy beaches with lovely azure water. The reserve also has many lagoons, fields and marshes with a great variety of wildlife present.

Marzamemi is a charming fishing village and is not too far from Giada. This is a charming place to visit and has many sweet restaurants and shops.

The nearest town with a good selection of shops and restaurants is Ispica, but if you head slightly further afield you will reach the Baroque delights of Noto, Modica, Ragusa and Scicli. These towns are celebrated throughout the world for their striking architecture and are all glorious places to visit.

Siracusa is one of Sicily's most dazzling cities and should not be missed. With its Greek, Byzantine, Norman and Baroque architecture Siracusa beautifully demonstrates Sicily's varied past. Attractive churches, interesting museums, charming streets, intriguing archaeological sights, as well as a great atmosphere and delicious restaurants: Siracusa is a dream city.


Local Experiences

A guided tour of Siracusa will unlock many of the city's secrets. An expert guide will usher you through the streets explaining the city's amazing history and culture. You could also enjoy a guided tour of the Baroque towns of the Val di Noto, and wonder at the towns' extraordinary cohesion of architectural style.

Giada has the most wonderful seafront location and you will want to spend as much time by the sea as possible. For a fun day out, you could rent a boat and explore the coast's charming bays and beaches from the sea. Or why not try some water sports such as windsurfing at Pozzallo?

The south-east of Sicily has so many things to discover. A guided tour is a great way to really get to know the hidden treasures found nearby. TV-lovers will have a field day during an Inspector Montalbano tour, as most of the famous series is filmed locally.

Everyone loves Sicilian food and guests at Giada can request an in-villa cook service. Book a Cook and enjoy freshly prepared meals using fabulous local ingredients and traditional recipes.

If you would like to take some recipes and new-found Sicilian knowledge back home then book yourself into a cookery class and experience how to make some traditional dishes.

In May and June The Greek Theatre Festival of Siracusa takes place. A series of three Greek tragedies are put on, with Siracusa's ancient Greek Theatre as the venue. Book tickets for a unique evening at the theatre.

Extras

During the summer months, sun loungers and umbrellas are set up on the beach for you.

For larger parties, there is the option of also booking Amaltea and/or Zafira a two-bedroom villa for five, with a garden that leads down to the same beach as villa Giada.
