The simple and luxurious suite is located in the new 'Green' house set in the grounds of a former winery. There is a pine wood and 24 acres of private land which you can explore. The suite is brand new, eco-friendly and it is comprised of double bedroom, luxury bathroom and two huge terraces. There is no kitchen, but continental breakfast is served on your private terrace and you will have unlimited access to the infinity pool.
The guest suite is brand-new and architect designed. It consists of one double bedroom with a king size bed, a modern and spacious Italian bathroom with shower, WC, bidet and wash basin with heated towel-rail.
Good quality cotton bedding and towels are provided and changed upon arrival and thereafter as needed.
Two of the 10 foot high (3m) walls are glass and provide incredible views. There are full length black-out curtains for when the light is too much or you need to sleep. The Green House Is fully air conditioned and heated. The suite has its own independent entrance and two large covered terraces overlooking the valley and open countryside. Anna and Irek live on the other side of the building and they will bring you breakfast, make the bed and clean every day. Just down the hillside is the main house which dates back to the 19th century when it was a winery. Guests can enjoy full access to the large pool and the 24 acres of land.
Solar panels on the roof and an energy efficient design means the 'Green House' truly is green, as the warm Sicilian sunshine provides enough electricity for the 'Green House' as well as the neighbouring main house.
There is a very nice Agroturismo at the end of the street, where guests can enjoy locally delicious meals of foraged food and home grown products like ricotta and eggs at very special rates. We may also provide dinner to guests by prior arrangement . It is important to check our availability in advance as we often travel. Gian Piero used to run one of the top cooking schools for professional chefs in Italy and he makes creative and delicious meals mainly with our own homegrown organic vegetables.
We will be happy to provide recommendations on other local restaurants, many of which are Michelin or Gambero Rosso rated at affordable prices. The southeastern tip of Sicily is known from the Inspector Montalbano TV series and comprises many wonderful baroque towns built in the 17th century, as well as beautiful beaches.
The 'Green House' is also ideally situated for many historical and archeological sites. Piazza Armerina with its wonderful Villa Romana, Ragusa Iblea, Noto and Siracusa are all easy trips by car.
If you prefer just to chill out - you have full access to the infinity pool, which is only shared with us, if we are there. The grounds are composed of hundreds of different types of trees including a pine wood, olives, orange and fig-trees growing naturally on the terraces of the former vineyard. This woody paradise attracts many different species of bird and butterflies. There are many peaceful walks to be taken with only the sounds and scents of nature.
The grounds are completely fenced in, which means it's a great place to bring your dog for a holiday. We have two very friendly labradors and they love the company of new people and friendly well-socialized dogs.
The guest suite has its own independent entrance and large covered terrace overlooking the valley and open countryside.
The Green House is Independent. Guests can access the infinity pool which is shared with the main house. Meals on the terrace of the main house can be enjoyed by prior arrangement and are subject to an extra fee.

I am British, married to a Swiss /Italian and have spend most of my life living in different countries in Europe. I work in the fashion industry and travel across Europe a lot.
We like fine food and wine (my husband runs a professional cooking institute), travel, friends, design, countryside, and dogs.
We love hosting on Airbnb and meeting people from all over the world. Although we are not always able to meet our guests face-to-face, we do our best to ensure they enjoy a true 'live like a local' experience. We have more than one listing, we are not professional landlords and have lived in all the houses listed, so we know the local scene well. We spend time in both properties when they are not occupied by guests.
