This recently built villa is an architect's dream. If you love contemporary style, then Elaya is just what you are looking for. With its unique design - seemingly hewn out of the surrounding countryside, with a stunning roof garden - Elaya is the ideal villa for you to unwind in south Sicily.


Outside: Elaya can hardly be seen from outside the property, due to its unique design and roof garden. The zen-like garden offers peace and tranquility and a wonderful environment in which to relax. Mediterranean herbs and plants, such as lavender, capers, rosemary and ancient olive trees are dotted around the property's garden, offering shady areas, as well as a heady fragrance unique to this part of the island. There are several seating areas.

The pool area is bliss. The long, narrow pool is superb for swimming your daily lengths, or for just relaxing in the cool water. Sunloungers and sun umbrellas are nearby, providing space for you to top up your tan or simply snooze under the Sicilian sun.

Accessible from the living area is a beautiful courtyard, covered with an awning. Here you will find an outdoor kitchen, a dining table and a comfortable sofa created using upcycled material. This living area offers a combination of inside comfort with al fresco style.

Inside: Enter into the villa through the large sliding glass doors from the pool area into the chic living area. The modern kitchen - with a wine fridge that is perfect for chilling local wines - is in one corner of the room. A seating area with colourful chairs and a television is found in the other half of the living area. Artistic touches are found throughout, be it striking splashes of colour, or evocative decorations and ornaments.

There is one double bedroom with an ensuite bathroom to the left of the living area. An extra single bed is also available. This bedroom has views out over the pool and is bright and cheery. The other two double bedrooms - both with their own en suite bathrooms - are along a corridor to the right of the living room. One of these bedrooms has a futon-style bed, and also has access to the utility room and a small courtyard. Every one of these bedrooms has a simple, yet artistic, aesthetic.


Local Sights

Elaya rural location is blissful, but there are also many wonderful beaches nearby, meaning you get the best of both worlds. The closest beach is found at Marina di Ragusa. This little town has a super range of pizzerias, restaurants, bars and lidi. Another pretty coastal town is Donnalucata.

For beautiful towns, you are spoilt for choice. This area in Sicily is known for its Baroque towns. Scicli is the nearest UNESCO recognised Baroque town. Utterly charming, the town is a delight to explore. Stunning palazzi, churches and streets are found around every corner, and there are many good places to eat and drink.

Modica and Ragusa are larger towns, both rebuilt in the 17th century in the Baroque style. Ragusa Ibla is extremely pretty and the views of the surrounding countryside are gorgeous. Modica is a food-lover's dream, with its unique and delicious chocolate heritage. Noto is also worth visiting for its Baroque beauty.

Drive a little further and you can experience some natural beauty at the Vendicari Nature Reserve. Its sandy beaches are picture-perfect. Calamosche bay is a favourite - visit for a dreamy day at an unspoilt, wild beach. Marzamemi is close to the Nature Reserve. It is a pretty seaside town with a charming piazza full of good restaurants serving classic Sicilian dishes.

Local Experiences

Explore the southern coast during a boat trip. Relax on deck, swim in clear waters, enjoy the sunshine and have a truly memorable day out on the water.

If you love food then Modica is a great place. Book a cooking experience. Learn to make traditional dishes at a cookery school in the Baroque town, or enjoy a chocolate masterclass using the traditional Modican chocolate.

Some of Sicily's most delicious wines are produced in south Sicily. Take a trip to one of the local wineries. You can visit the vines the cellars, and most importantly, taste some of the local vintages!

Fans of the hit series Inspector Montalbano will recognise many of the towns and sights in the area. You can also book a guided tour of Montalbano filming locations!

Golf lovers will not be disappointed. There is an 18-hole golf course fairly close to the villa at the Donnafugata Golf Resort meaning that even on holiday guests can enjoy a round or two!


The pool is open to guests from April 18th to October 24th.
