Property Description

Our villa, Monte Croce, is located in the south east of Sicily, in the green and wild Iblei mountains. It is a recently renovated rural farmhouse built during the beginning of the 1900s.
The construction of the cottage preserves the character of the traditional Sicilian rural abode, set inside of nine hectares of olive-groves and carob trees, with typical Sicilian plants such as thyme and sage. Many wild flowers and shrubs occur naturally on our land and it offers shelter to small animals like toads, hares and if you are lucky, you may come across tortoises nestling in the undergrowth.
Both from the house and from the garden there is a splendid panoramic view: to the north, a view of the magnificent volcano, Mount Etna, while to south the coast is glimpsed with the splendid sea at Vendicari.

The cottage is on is on one level and sleeps up to 6 people. There are two double bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two singles. The bedrooms face west and have their own balconies, where you can sit and watch the sunset - if you're not watching it go down while you sit by the swimming pool!
There is a very large and comfortable sofa bed in the living/dining room. This room also has a stone fireplace which provides heating. There is a large dining table for entertaining.
The kitchen has a gas cooker; a large fridge/freezer and a dishwasher. There is also a breakfast bar.
The floors are made of fired earthen tiles and the kitchen and living room ceilings have the original reeds and exposed beams.
