Sicilia - Siracusa - ROSOLINI


PRIVATE STRUCTURE (lease only - (CIR CODE: 19089016C220521). Villa I Mori is located in the Val di Noto, in the south-eastern area of Sicily, rich in Baroque architecture and less than half an hour's drive from some of the most beautiful beaches along the coast: from the Bay of Marispica, beloved by kitesurfers, to the Nature Reserve of Vendicari with long stretches of coastline dotted with beaches, some sandy and some rocky, washed by a crystal-clear sea inviting you to take a refreshing dip. The villa, whose name evokes the past dominations of the Moors, who heavily influenced Sicilian art and culture, has been entirely restored with natural stone from Modica and natural stone from Etna. The interior recalls the country style, with furniture handmade by local artisans with local materials. The large living room with beautiful seating area, communicating nicely with the built-in kitchen, was designed to make communication between inside and outside comfortable and smooth. The French windows of the living room and kitchen lead out to the porticoed terrace which opens onto the garden, enlivened by numerous fruit trees and flowering shrubs and enhanced by the swimming pool, with adjacent outdoor gym and jacuzzi. Completing the wellness circuit in the garden is a Finnish sauna. The geographical setting of Villa I Mori is rich in suggestions and attractions, full of unmissable stops and artistic-cultural itineraries, with a past that lives on in some of the most renowned towns in the area, such as nearby Modica, Noto, Ragusa and Scicli: towns symbolic of the Val di Noto for their Baroque architecture, food and wine delights and for the Inspector Montalbano TV series that has made them internationally famous.


The fully air-conditioned villa extends on a single floor. The main entrance opens into a small hallway that leads, to the left, into the sleeping area consisting of two double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower. On the other side is the living room with sofas and fireplace, communicating, through an archway and three steps, with the kitchen with dining area. French windows in the living area lead out to the portico equipped with dining table and sitting area. The laundry room is located in an external area a few steps from the villa.


The land surrounding the villa, about 2500 m, is flat and planted with fruit trees, olive trees, flowering shrubs and a small vegetable garden for the use of guests. The living room and kitchen lead directly out to the portico with dining and sitting areas. Adjacent to the dining area is a barbecue. From the portico, a large paved terrace extends, on one side, to a further living area under the shade of a carob tree and, on the other side, to the swimming pool level with the solarium and the set-up areas, with the orchard beyond. On one side of the villa is the Finnish sauna, framed by flowering shrubs, and the laundry room in a separate building. A parking area for three cars is located in a dedicated area immediately past the entrance gate of the property. Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.

Swimming Pool:

The swimming pool is located on the same level as the ground floor of the villa, about 10 m from it and reached in a few steps from the French windows. The rectangular pool, with lining, chlorine purification and submerged Roman steps, measures 5 x 10 m with a constant depth of 1.20 m. The surrounding sunbathing area of about 150 sq m is paved in parquet and equipped with 6 sunbeds, a gym area and a jacuzzi, which can be covered if necessary. There is an external cold-water shower. The pool can also be used at night thanks to both internal and external lighting and is available from the last Saturday in April to the first Saturday in October.

Location and distances

Villa I Mori is located in the south-eastern part of the Syracuse area, between the provinces of Syracuse and Ragusa in the Val di Noto. Villa I Mori is located in a residential area in the countryside, with extensive cultivations of early local produce that ripen in the typical greenhouses of the area. The villa is in the ideal location to explore the many small authentic towns of historical interest. The delightful towns to visit in the area are countless, and include the best of Sicilian Baroque, as well as places made famous by the Commissioner Montalbano TV series such as Ragusa, Modica, Scicli and Punta Secca. Less than half an hour away is the enchanting historic centre of Modica: houses, Baroque palaces and grandiose churches that follow on after each other on the sides of the hill. A visit to Scicli, a World Heritage Site, is a must-see with its town centre full of picturesque architecture, its blue sea and millennial traditions that today can be seen in the cuisine, festivals and spirit of the inhabitants. Punta Secca, a fishing village overlooking the Mediterranean Sea enjoys its notoriety due to fiction. Here were filmed scenes at the restaurant of Enzo a Mare and at the house di Montalbano facing the beach. At the table, native grape varieties include Nero d'Avola, Insolia and Cerasuolo di Vittoria, whille the cheeses are among the best on the island. The restaurants on the seafront create the right atmosphere for those wishing to spend a few days at the beach or to stroll and admire beautiful sunsets. For the beach, less than 30 minutes away is the bay from Pozzallo to Santa Maria del Focallo, an area popular with kitesurfers with numerous fresh fish restaurants, and long fine sandy beaches dotted with kiosks where you can stop and admire the kites with a cold drink or a snack.
