What we like about this property

Stunning in it’s architectural simplicity and harmony with nature, this contemporary installation is pristine and earthy. There is an insistence (and proof!) that less is definitely more here.

 
Description

Light and almost relentlessly simple in vision, space and character, this home harmonizes gently and seamlessly into the Sicilian countryside.  

There’s an innate intelligence and appreciation in how architect Maria Giuseppina Grasso Cannizzo has organized the light, structure and space to highlight a completely effortless way of natural, modern living. Designed as two separate structures and residences, the  guest unit slides (on tracks!) to close the structure completely or open to separate and reveal a spacious terrace with views to the sea.

With walls of windows and whitewashed interiors, this cantilevered structure is full of natural light and minimal embellishment which allows for the countryside to become an integral part of the house. Each of the three, airy, bright bedrooms is spare in execution and style providing peaceful places to dream. The home sleeps up to six total and can be situated for couples or singles.

The glossy concrete and polished wood floors contrast with the minimal vintage furnishings and contemporary custom made pieces for an unadulterated appreciation of the architect’s vision.  

Situated directly adjacent to the  Vendicari land reserve, there are unobstructed views from every angle of fields of olive, almond and citrus orchards, wild land and the Mediterranean Sea for a truly private escape.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES 

Television, Internet, fully equipped kitchen and baths. Heating system with partial air conditioning. Full laundry facilities.

AROUND 

Sea View Villa is an ideal place to combine nature with the chance to visit historic Baroque sites of extraordinary elegance. You’ll find yourself nestled in the Val di Noto, one of the most spectacular baroque art sites in Sicily, and since 2002 listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Five kilometers from the city and fifteen minutes from the golden beaches at the natural reserve of Vendicari, you can escape or explore to your heart’s content.

LOCATED

  • Our stay at Sea View was unforgettable. In the middle of the Sicilian countryside the impressive house rises when you drive up the small path. Olive trees and lemon trees all around you, the sea in the front! The stylish, minimalistic, although very comfortable house couldn’t be a better match with the surrounding nature. We’ve never felt so relaxed before, from the very first second.
    The beautiful town of Noto is nearby, on a ten minutes drive away : shops and supermarkets are easy to find.
    All contacts with Mrs Federica, the owner and Cristina the local lady went very efficient and extremely friendly.
    We hope we can come back to enjoy this unique place to stay!

    Wir hatten zu zweit das große Vergnügen, eine Woche unserer Herbstferien im la melagrana verbracht zu haben. Schon der Kontakt zu den Vermietern war herzlich und unkompliziert. Abends angekommen, haben wir mit Hilfe einer sehr freundlichen Dame vor Ort, den zum Teil etwas steinigen und steilen Weg (nicht geeignet für Sportwagen – alle anderen Fahrzeuge kommen gut durch) zum Haus gezeigt bekommen. Dort erfolgte eine ausführliche und gute Erklärung des Hauses und seiner Spezialitäten. Am kommenden Morgen zeigte sich dann die wunderbare Lage des Hauses mit Meerblick (Entfernung ca. 5 km) und der Blick auf die karge aber genau deshalb so schöne Lage in der Mitte von Olivenbäumen. Die Terrasse ist für 2 oder auch vier Personen sehr gut geeignet und ermöglicht stundenlanges Lesen im charmanten Liegestühlen. Die Einrichtung und Ausstattung des Hauses ist sehr geschmackvoll und wird durch die Fotos gut dargestellt – ein schöner Mix aus modernen Elementen (Küche und Einbauelemente) und Vintage Möbeln mit gutem Design. Wir haben nicht das ganze Haus genutzt da wir nur zu zweit waren – zu viert wird ein Teil des Hauses zusätzlich geöffnet – dabei handelt es sich um den beweglich ausgeführten Teil des Hauses. Auch dieser Bereich ist sehr modern ausgestattet und mit einem eigenen Bad versehen. Der Zugang zu dieser fast schon separaten Wohnung erfolgt durch das Wohnzimmer des Haupthauses – was überhaupt kein Problem darstellt. Der Partner der Vermieterin ist Designer und eine sehr schöne Leuchte aus Messing im la melagrana ist von ihm selber entworfen. Mit dem Auto können Lebensmittel und auch sehr feine sizilianische Leckereien in der 10 Minuten entfernten Stadt Noto eingekauft werden. Im Haus gab es auch viele Visitenkarten lokaler Restaurants in der näheren und weiteren Umgebung – und diese waren ausnahmslos alle sehr gut.
    Wir hatten eine spektakuläre Urlaubsarchitektur gesucht – und genau das gefunden. Das Genießen des großartigen Blicks in den Nachthimmel von der Terrasse aus, das Kochen mit Blick aus dem Haus in die Olivenbäume und die sehr freundlichen Vermieterin und ihr Team vor Ort hat uns einen sehr schönen – zu kurzen – Urlaub ermöglicht.
    Vielen Dank für den Mut, eine so expressive Architektur an einem so schönen Ort zu erstellen – der weite Weg mit dem Auto von Deutschland bis nach Sizilien hat sich mehr als gelohnt.

    Our stay at Sea View Villa in Sicily was amazing! We loved the house, the interior, the view, the patio, the surrounding. Everything regarding the renting went super smooth. From getting the key to leaving the house.
    The surrounding is magical. From early morning til the evening one enjoys every second.
    It doesn´t take long to drive to Noto and the surrounding villages.

    Our only critics.
    The cats hanging out at the house were a bit of a surprise for us, but in the end, we made friends with them.

    We went to this extraordinary place first two weeks of September and we spent an amazing holiday. The building itself is very impressive. Knowing the house only from the photos, we were surprised how much space the house provides. The interior design is an excellent balance between minimalism and cosiness. Relaxing on the huge terrace and looking over the enormous property with the beautiful country view is indescribable.
    It is recommended not to have a very small city car as rental, since only a dirt road leads to the property. It takes you about 10-15 minutes to the beach by car.
    Federica, the owner, was present at our arrival and welcomed us in an extremely friendly way. Her tips were very useful. It would be great to come back once. Thanks again Federica!

  • To be honest, this was the best trip I ever had in my life. Although it was only a week, I really was able to switch off. The house was so beautiful (and even better than the pictures suggest) and clean it was just the perfect get away located on top of a little hip surrounded by olive trees etc. We went out for dinner only once in the end. Spent all other nights at the house cooking and drinking splendid wine. The people of Sicily are genuine and nice. This whole area around Noto is one of the most spectacular places I’ve been but it makes the impression as if its not discovered yet. No ugly hotels along the coastline. Just really authentic. You get there and you immediately connect with the environment.
    Federica was very helpful and always responsive. She has built her own little heaven there that I hope to be able to revisit very soon again…

    Mitte April dieses Jahres waren wir eine Woche im la melagrana. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl und zu Hause dort gefühlt. Das Ferienhaus hat einen wunderschönen Blick auf die sizilianische Landschaft und ist äußerst geschmack- und liebevoll eingerichtet.
    Nur 10 Minuten von Noto entfernt liegend, erreicht man la melagrana auf einer unbefestigten Landstraße. Die ruhige und abgeschiedene Lage ermöglicht optimale Erholung.
    Von der hübsche Stadt im Barock-Stil aus, erreichte man zahlreiche der lokalen Sehenswürdigkeiten im Nu, wie z.B. Siracusa, Modica oder Ragusa. Auch die dortigen Strände sind schnell zu erreichen.
    Wir würden jederzeit gerne wiederkommen.
