Zahara really has a dream location with private access to the sea, as well as great outdoor space and comfortable interiors. It is ideal for anyone looking to explore the eastern and south-eastern areas of Sicily.


Outside: Zahara has super outdoor space, including a shaded comfy seating area, a covered dining area with a barbecue and a wonderful decking area that is perfect for breakfast, aperitivo or just lazing on the hammock whilst gazing out over the sea. The garden also boasts a ping pong table, beautiful trees and a covered parking space. The real highlight, however, is the direct access to the sea. Head down the steps and you will discover your own private jetty. With canoes, snorkelling equipment and sunloungers available for guests, this will certainly be a popular spot during your holiday - either to relax and enjoy the sun, or explore the local bay. There is also a shared tennis court close to the villa, which can also be used as a football pitch, for any sports enthusiasts!

Inside: Walk through the main door and into a charming living area with sofas as well as a small dining table. The living area has sea views and access to the outdoor seating area which is perfect for relaxing in the shade. Just off this main living room is a small study with a TV. The ground floor has two double en suite bedrooms, the first having access to the garden and beautiful sea views. A twin bedroom and a single room share a bathroom between them. The second double bedroom has a small terrace outside its French windows. On the left of the living room is the kitchen, with all the equipment you need. There is also a guest bathroom with laundry facilities and another kitchen located off the main house. This second kitchen is half covered and is perfect for preparing your meals on a hot afternoon. There is also a bright and breezy dining room near this kitchen with fantastic views out to sea.

There is a triple bedroom (one double bed, one single) on the first floor, only accessible from the garden. Climb the steps, and half way up you will find a charming small terrace. Continue to the first floor where this large bedroom, complete with small service kitchen, bathroom and private balcony with fabulous views, awaits.


Local Sights

With such a wonderful seafront location, it may be hard to leave the villa, but south-east Sicily is full of incredible sights and Zahara is wonderfully positioned to see all of them. Brucoli has all the shops that you could need for basics, as well as a few shops and bars.

Siracusa is not far. Packed with outstanding architecture and memorable archaeological ruins, such as the Greek Theatre, Siracusa has a wonderful atmosphere. Stroll though its historic centre, the island of Ortigia, and discover wonders around ever corner.

For a taste of bustling Sicilian life, make your way to Catania. As Sicily's second city, Catania has a style all of its own. Visit the city's fish market, wander around the historic centre and take in the black lava stone architecture, visit Teatro Bellini or enjoy the many great restaurants and bars.

The towns of the Val di Noto, such as Modica, Noto, Scicli and Ragusa are in the area and make for wonderful day trips. The architecture, known as Sicilian Baroque, is truly outstanding. You'll be amazed by the intricate and over-the-top decorations found throughout the towns. Enjoy an ice-cream in a piazza and watch the world go by.

If a relaxed day in a seaside town is more your thing, then stop off at Marzamemi. This charming town has some lovely restaurants and a very picturesque piazza. Visit for a relaxed atmosphere, some great nearby beaches and some yummy food!

Local Experiences

Really get to know the area by booking a guided tour. Discover the secrets of the ornate towns of the Val di Noto, or why not take a Montalbano tour where you can see where the cult series is filmed in the area! Private tours are also available, taking you to the main sights in the area, including the stunning Siracusa.

For foodies, we could also organise a Street Food tour of Catania, giving you the chance to taste some of the local specialities. Or, if you would prefer to take some Sicilian recipes home with you, you could enjoy a cookery class at a local cookery school!

Etna is not far and we can arrange several experiences to guests at Zahara. Wine-lovers will be thrilled by a vineyard tour on one of Mount Etna's fabulous wineries, whilst a jeep tour or a hike up the volcano is a must for anyone who is interested in nature!

Sicily's coastline should definitely be explored by boat! What could be better than a boat trip or excursion! Discover pretty bays and swim in pristine waters during a fun and relaxing day out on the sea.
