An outstanding countryside property with a great location that is perfect for exploring south-east Sicily. This large villa, with great privacy, a beautiful pool and a characteristic atmosphere is perfect for large groups, especially for celebrations. Recently restored, using eco-friendly technology and upcycled furniture, Mutica has every level of comfort, guaranteeing an enjoyable holiday in sunny Sicily for you and your party.


Outside: Set deep in south-east Sicilian countryside, Mutica has wonderful outside space for you to enjoy. The pool is a highlight, where you can cool off from the Sicilian sun. The pool has LED lights creating a magical atmosphere at night. Around the pool there are sunloungers perfect for relaxing and soaking up the sun. Table tennis is available for those with a competitive spirit and an outdoor dining table and barbecue are perfect for al fresco evenings under a starry sky. There is also a charming stone courtyard, with an outdoor seating area that is a great location to relax, enjoy a glass of wine or a quiet moment with family and friends.
The villa has a large, private on-site parking area.

Inside: Beautifully refurbished, Mutica is a perfect for large groups. The main property is centred around a characteristic courtyard. Enter into the large, light filled dining room, with a glass wall looking out over the swimming pool. There is also a TV area in this spacious room, as well as a bar that is ideal for your morning coffee! Just off this communal space are two cosy reading rooms where you can chill out in the cool. The villa has a large, industrial kitchen (not open to guests) and an on-site professional chef. See Extras for more details about this. 

Across the courtyard are four stylish bedrooms - each with their own ensuite bathrooms and facilities. Stylishly furnished - combining modernity and tradition - these rooms offer privacy and comfort. One bedroom is larger than the others, with its own mezzanine where two single beds can be added, making it ideal for a young family.

Slightly set apart from the main courtyard are the other bedrooms. This building, which was once the farm's stables, now overlooks the pool and is made up of five lovely double ensuite bedrooms. There is the option of creating two two-bedroom apartments (with interlocking doors) which would work well for families travelling with teenagers or children.

All bedrooms at Mutica have their own televisions, mini fridges and bar, ensuring the utmost comfort.


Local Sights

Mutica is wonderfully positioned to explore south-east Sicily, one of the island's richest cultural areas.
Modica is an exceptional town, known for its architecture and chocolate. Stroll through the streets and take in the atmosphere. Ragusa Ibla is equally stunning, with a view that you will never forget! Both of these towns will be familiar to fans of Inspector Montalbano - filming often takes place here! The UNESCO World Heritage towns of the Val di Noto are all close by. Don't miss out on Scicli and Noto!

This area has some lovely beaches. Hit Pozzallo for water sports - it is one of Sicily's best locations for some adrenaline-boosting activities, although nearby coast also offers many long sandy beaches that are ideal for lazy days on the beach: Marina di Modica with a good range of bars and restaurants and is a great choice. For a picturesque day in a seaside town, stop off at Marzamemi. This small fishing town has a charming piazza that has many bars and restaurants. The fish here is wonderfully fresh and highly recommended for lunch!

Lovers of natural beauty are equally spoilt in this part of Sicily. The Cava d'Ispica archaeological area is very close to Mutica where beautiful scenery meets with ancient dwellings carved out of the rock. For spotless beaches the Vendicari Nature Reserve is unparalleled and if hiking is your thing then we recommend the Cassibile Nature Reserve.

Siracusa is one of Sicily's gems, and is a dream destination for any tourist. With its evocative historic centre - the island of Ortigia - and its wonderful archaeological site, Siracusa is a city like no other. It is a bit of a drive from the villa, but worth it!

Local Experiences

Treat yourself and your guests to a night of delicious and authentic Sicilian cooking with an in-villa cook service. A talented cook will come to the villa to prepare a meal for your party. Expect fresh, tasty food, with a distinct Sicilian flavour!

You could also enjoy a cookery class - either in the villa or at a local cookery school. As Modica is famous for its unique style of chocolate, why not try our chocolate cookery experience - its a fun and delicious day during which you will learn about (and taste) the area's fantastic chocolate heritage.

The area has a wonderful Baroque heritage, and a guided tour of the many towns is well worth it, giving a unique insight into the towns' history and culture. You could also combine a tour of the Baroque towns of the Val di Noto with a tour of the filming locations of Inspector Montalbano, bringing this wonderful Sicilian export even more to life!

South-east Sicily creates some fantastic wines, especially in the area near Vittoria. Visit a winery to enjoy a tasting and to discover more about the area's oenological past and present.

For a breath of sea air, you could book a boat trip. Cruise along the beautiful coast, swimming in crystal clear waters and feeling your cares drift away as you top up your tan out on deck. It is a wonderfully relaxing experience and is a great way to see Sicily from another perspective.


In 2020 the pool is open to guests all year round.

In 2021 the pool is open to guests from 3rd April to 29th October.

There is a professional chef on site, who can prepare lunches and dinners for you and your guests. Having your own chef is a great way to relax and not think about cooking for the week. The chef will prepare meals for you according to the shopping you provide. This service is included in the rental cost so no extra fee will be applied.

A restaurant-style service is also available at an extra cost.

Please get in touch with us to know the service conditions and menu options.
