A superb villa with fantastic countryside views - and its own sports court

Named after the spectacular sunsets that can be enjoyed from its grounds and perched above the baroque town of Scicli, Villa Scurata is a beautifully converted stone house commanding panoramic views over the Val di Noto. Set amongst olive and carob trees and with a scattering of nearby houses, the villa offers a superb setting for a true Sicilian getaway.

The interior is spread over three floors and decorated in a minimalistic style. With a light and airy feel, it features a spacious open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area, a second smaller lounge room with a bar and four double bedrooms. Outside, the well-tended gardens encircle a large swimming pool, spa area with hot tub and sauna, and a private sun-kissed terrace where you are sure to embrace the typically Mediterranean al fresco living. There is also a separate fenced sports court for racket sports, kick-a-bouts and games.

For those who wish to venture out, the magnificent baroque towns of the Val di Noto are only a short drive, as is the chic beach resort of Marina di Ragusa and the golden sands of Donnalucata.
