Apartment Owner's Notes and Description
It is today widely accepted that the Vendicari natural reserve hosts arguably the most beautiful sand beaches of Sicily. Vendicari itself, Calamosche (voted the best Italian beach in 2006), Eloro, Marinelli, San Lorenzo, Carratois, these are all sandy beaches within 10min drive with cristaline, warm waters. 

As for culture there are Roman and Greek ruins within a 5min drive from the villa (the Roman Villa of Tellaro is one of the main landmarks of my property) and within the Natural Reserve. The Unesco World Heritage city of Noto, with it's baroque churches and buildings is only 8kms away and Siracusa within a 20min drive as well as Modica and Scicli.

As for nature you will be located in the middle of one of the most beautiful natural reserves of Italy. Also the surrounding area offer plenty of opportunity for natural excursions and the Etna vulcano is only 1hr drive away

Villa Vendicari is a secluded family villa with sea view and easy access (1 mile) to the sea and to a world famous natural reserve, Vendicari. There is only one very educated neighbour at close distance but with a different country road access. She's far enough not to hear music or smells coming from her place anyway...

It's composed of two buildings, Villa Vendicari Junior and Villa Vendicari Senior, and a 25,000sqmts garden and swimming pool.

You can rent it in exclusive here on this listing if you find it available, or just rent part of it in exclusive and/or with common use of the garden and swimming pool if you're price sensitive.

The villa is located within the boundaries of natural reserve right at the Vendicari entrance to the National Park leading directly to one of its best sandy beaches and the renown Tonnara di Vendicari. Distance from Noto, the closest town, is 8km.

The apartment overall is 250mq, plus 250 mts of terraces, 100 mts of roof garden, 600sqmt of lawn, 20,000mts of garden, private parking, swimming pool.

A note about sleeping places: I'm setting this up as sleeping 16 people including 4 people in a tent that I will provide in the tree house. There are 4 bedrooms and two living-rooms one of which has a double sofa bed. There are 3 full bathrooms + 2 hot showers outside. Are you more than 8 people? Let's talk and see if this is suitable for you before you book ;)

The villa is composed of two apartments buildings.
Vendicari Senior
170 sq mts, set on the ground floor it is composed of 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a very large and spacious lounge room with kitchen, skylight and 7 windows. One enters the house via a large, shaded terrace. On the ground floor is a living and dining area with fireplace, a well-equipped kitchen connecting  to a corridor leading to two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom to the right and going forward to the main bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Right outside the outside barbecue area and the edible garden (see below for details)
Vendicari Junior
80sq mts, set on the ground floor just beside the other building, it is composed of 1 bedroom, 1 living with kitchen corner and one bathroom.

On entering the gate of the villa, you'll drive by olive and other Mediterranean trees (~350mts) until you get to the private parking and the lawn on the side of the path to the villa.

The Property: The property is made of 25,000sqmts. 250sqmts is the villas. Another 450sqmts is of terraces around the house to and around the swimming pool. 600sqmts is lawn around the house. Another 400sqmts is herbs (mostly edible). The rest of the field is to be cultivated with medical herbs.

Terraces overlook the sea, have a bench and pillows, they can be used only by adults that are wary of risks, no children are allowed on the Vendicari Senior' terrace, while the Vendicari Junior has no risks, but it's only a garden, no dedicated space for sitting etc. The sea is clearly visible also downstairs although it must be admitted that dawn and sunset are more spectacular upstairs.

The garden has several dozens of different trees:
lemon, dozens of olive trees, dozens of carob trees, orange, persimmon, figues, konkuats, dozens of almond trees, several pepper trees, pomegranate, hackberry, different variaeties of oaks.
There is an abundant edible garden with hundreds of aromatic herbs: rosemary, caper, calendula, sagebrush, mallow, myrtle, lavender, thyme, majoram, mint, red pepper, oregano
There are several bushes, among others: viburnum, laurel. papyrus, lentiscus.

Noto, with its excellent restaurants and food stalls, is located about seven minutes away with the beautiful sandy beaches of Eloro, Calamosche, Vendicari and Lido di Noto just ten to fifteen minutes further on. The beautiful Duomo Square of Ortygia in Siracusa is forty minutes away with the other Baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa an Scicli about an hour away. So with those, along the vineyards of Etna and the Roman mosaics at Piazza Armerina, which about two hours away, you are ideally placed to make the most of what South East Sicily has to offer whether that be food, wine, culture, or quiet relaxation.

A little note about climate: The average temperature is ~20°C, rain here is rare and it is considered a blessing, however I understand if you'd rather not have it at all, in the attached graphic (last picture) you can see the months when it rains less or more. Even october, where you see the bigger line it is nothing like the rest of Europe, this area is desertic, even the north of Sicily is considered very humid here. Rains will never be much of a nuisance, they usually are very intense, but brief. You can easily imagine a rainy day where of October where you've been to the beach twice and swam at length in rather warm waters. This is indeed my experience. One important note when you look at the graphic is indeed the temperature of the sea water which is way warmer in October/November than March/April, incidentally, I swim in both these seasons here.

A note about security: It is really under control. There is an alarm system that is very modern and efficient, besides the security guards that are contracted to be available within 10min if you call them (or call me to call them) and informed automatically every time the alarm goes off, more importantly than that in over five years we didn't have problems of any sort, our gardener lives not far and keeps everything in check, I am a local myself and respected by the neighbors, which is the best security system. Said that, when you leave the house it is good practise to turn the alarm on, when you are inside, it's not suggested to turn it on since it can be a nuisance.

Access to the sea

The house is located in the B area of the natural reserve, once you
cross the road (SP19) you are in the natural reserve, a walk all the
way to the beach takes 15/20min at a fast pace, although it's a really
pleasant and short car ride and the parking is easy and free, so I
suggest probably to ride by car to the parking and walk from there so
you don't have to cross the SP19, however a walk should take you 15min or so. Once in the natural reserve you can
choose among 6 different sandy beaches, depending on how far you want
to walk (the coastline is about 12Kms)

However the house has a swimming pool and a very large garden and
terraces. I've seen in the past that many guests have on average spent
a lot of time at home... and I do too ;)

Distances

Catania airport: 88km-50miles-55mins
Palermo airport: 300Km-186miles-3hr25
Trapani airport: 384km-228miles-4hr05
Siracusa: 30km-22miles-25mins
Noto: 8km-5miles-40mins
Sandy beaches at Vendicari Nature Reserve: 2km-1miles-5mins.

Beaches

The best beaches are all in the natural reserve, you have Vendicari which is about 3min drive from home which I love, Marinelli which is about 7min drive, Cala Mosche which is about 10 min drive and Eloro which is about 15min drive, all of these you can reach walking through the natural reserve from Vendicari, easy walks in nature

Restaurants

Going to Vendicari there is a restaurant open air which I like to go to from time to time, it's the only one you find on the street to Vendicari and you see it from the street, about 2kms away from the house. Going to Cala Mosche there are two restaurants that I love in the unpaved road, one is called Torre Vendicari and the other one is beside the parking of Cala Mosche

In Noto I go to Dammuso or to the Crocifisso and I love both of them. If you want to stay on the cheap side, though tasty and somewhat charming, go to Il Libertino across the street from the Dammuso. All of these you can find on google for directions and phone numbers.

In Scicli I go to Satra, great quality, a little expensive but worth it.

In Marzamemi (Please Note: Marzamemi is generally become a tourist trap and is to be avoided, but if you really want to go)

1- Campisi (possibly closed in winter)
2- La Cialoma, amazing location right on the main Piazza, the value for money is bad compared to other places in the area.
4- Giramapao, good value for money, but not such a great location, it's on the corso right before Campisi going towards the Piazza

Restaurants in PortoPalo
1- Pensione Scala, amazing value for money, location not so great
2- U Piscaturi, good location near the harbor, huge quantities, average quality, good price


Supermarkets and Groceries

Closest supermarkets are in Noto and or Pachino at about 8kms distance, otherwise small groceries can be found in San Lorenzo at about 4kms distance and/or Marzamemi about 5Kms distance.
My tip is to use the three wheelers for the produce, so you get it local, in the supermarket you'll get low quality imported produce.

Meat

This is not a meat area really, I think that at Lidl in Avola have a good meat selection
https://www.lidl.it/it/ricerca-filiale.htm
Or at the 'Sì Più' just when entering Noto, the supermarket to the left

Fish

For the fish you may want to try Dugo, near the main Piazza in Pachino or further away go to the harbor in Portopalo where you will find the fish market



Wineries


a. http://planeta.it/territories/noto/
it's about 10km from home totally worth it
book here
http://planeta.it/contatti/#section_three

b. There is a very characteristic winery close to home 'Cantine Modica' you can follow the indications, it's about 5km, this is not nearly as professional and high quality, but may be interesting exactly for that.

c. This is also rather close to home and it's very nice and worth a visit
https://cantinamarilina.com/

d. This is closer to Noto, very professional and beautiful totally worth a visit

Villa Vendicari is a beautiful and extremely comfortable villa. We were well looked after and had a lovely week.
from United Kingdom
5 of 5
The villa is in a beautiful location, very peaceful and tranquil. We were a party of 8 and the two villas worked well for us. We loved the contemporary architecture. We enjoyed all the different outside spaces, plenty of quiet spots if you want to curl up with a book. Guglielmo was a very helpful host, easy to contact He also booked restaurants and taxis for us as our Italian is rather limited! Overall a very enjoyable holiday.

Great villa in the natural reserve of Vendicari, not far from the sea.

We really enjoyed being in the house. We loved the location, the beaches, Noto, Planeta winery, and especially Modica. We enjoyed spending lazy afternoons and evenings by the pool. We especially loved our birthday meal at Ristorante Crocifisso. Thank you for your recommendation. The food and wine choices were excellent.  We all visited Planeta, and really enjoyed the experience. We learned a lot about the history of Sicilian wine, and we loved the local muscat and of course the Nero d'Avola. 
The house was lovely and very well equipped, and perfect for us all. We had a small problem with ants in the kitchen area, but coped pretty well with getting rid of them, and I guess this is inevitable in the country.

Guglielmo's villa is stunning: a unique design in an incredible setting. Very practical too, we stayed with a group of 9 and had everything we need. Family friendly, great for kids. We hope to come back again soon!

Un piccolo saluto per dire che ci troviamo da dio. La casa e' davvero un gioiello - beh un diamante.

Per me ci sono pochi posti dove il mio cuore si sente bilanciato, dove il mio occhio può viaggiare senza disturbi. La vostra villa fa parte - e' un capolavoro. Complimenti ancora.

Splendida villa. dotata di tutti i comfort. Appartata e silenziosa, non c'è nessuno che ti disturba, vicinissima all'entrata della riserva di Vendicari, a Noto, alla spiggia di Cala Mosche, a San Lorenzo, a altre bellissime spiagge e al caratteristico villagio di Marzamemi, 
Ci siamo sentiti come a casa.

Guglielmo has created an incredible architectural and natural experience throughout this magnificent property. We loved everything about the house, from the sliding windows, fireplace and rooftop terrace to the smell of rosemary along the garden path. Guglielmo went above and beyond for us. He was always available to answer questions or provide recommendations on where to go and most importantly, where to eat. Our son fell ill towards the end of the holiday and Guglielmo was there to help, talking to doctors for us and providing advice on where to take our son to get treated. Guglielmo and the property are a one in a million package and I would highly recommend!!!

Peace and quiet, beautiful surroundings, sitting on the roof terrace watching the sunset. Playing football games in the pool! Well stocked kitchen, sharp knives (though blood spilled on first day before we realised how sharp!). Herbs in the garden. Helpful & charming staff. Good showers

This holiday was awesome! Unfortunately we didn't met Guglielmo this time, but he helped us via phone as good as he can and was available every minute. So the house is perfect, even better than on the pictures. We really didn't want to leave there anymore. :) We had both houses and both were very tasteful furnished. Nice kitchen. Nice terrace. We slept in the bed like in heaven. So still very in love with the nature and the house and the beautiful garden. The pool side is so nice as well. From the garden you can see the ocean and so much nature that you can relax 100%. We will definitely will come back. And hopefully we meet Guglielmo next time. Highly recommended! Come there and enjoy this beautiful piece of nature.

A really unique place - ideal for our holiday with 4 small kids. At the same time a contemporary and cozy place and perfectly organized. We where super well received and had great information from Guglielmo. We hope very much to be able to come back :-)

Der Aufenthalt in Guglielmos Haus war sehr, sehr schön! Es liegt am Rande eines Naturschutzgebietes, rundherum gibt es nur ein Nachbarhaus, fantastisch blühende Wiesen, (zu Ostern), Zitronen und Olivenbäume, Steinmauern, Kakteen, viele Pflanzen im sehr schön angelegten Garten des Hauses. Der Blick auf das Meer, dazwischen das Naturschutzgebiet, eine kaum hörbare Landstraße, es geht fast nicht besser! Das Haus ist wunderbar, genug Platz, sehr schöne Architektur, modern, gemütlich, hell, warm ( zu Ostern wird es vor allem wenn die Sonne nicht scheint noch sehr kühl). Wir sind zwei Stunden verspätet erst um Mitternacht angekommen, für Guglielmo kein Problem, er war vor Ort, hat das Haus beheizt, sogar für Essen gesorgt. Außerdem hat er uns an verlorener Stelle abgeholt und uns in das Haus gelotst welches bei Dunkelheit schwierig zu finden war. Am nächsten Morgen wurde uns dann alles erklärt,Haustechnick, inclusive bester Restaurant Tips, und schöne Orte zur Besichtigung, wo man guten Wein bekommt und vieles mehr. Auch in den nächsten Tagen wurden wir immer wieder gefragt ob alles ok ist, ob wir Hilfe benötigen. Wir bekamen reichlich Gemüse geschenkt aus dem umliegenden Feldern, es schmeckte köstlich! Der Gärtner war sehr freundlich, ebenso die Reinigungsfrau! Die Kinder haben sich genauso wohl gefühlt wie wir Erwachsen, für Menschen die Ruhe und Erholung in schöner Landschaft in schönem Ambiente suchen gibt es nichts besseres!

An hour's drive from the airport of Catania, this is a spacious, modern, clean and beautifully decorated house, with fantastic views to the sea and the nature reserve of Vendicari. Surrounded by fields of carob and olive groves, the beautiful beaches of Vendicari are only five minutes away, with crystal clear water. The Baroque city of Noto is also extremely close, easy to reach for night out. In the other direction, Marzamemmi and Pachino are also within easy reach.
There is air conditioning throughout the house, which can sleep two families. The house itself is newly built, by the current owner. Sitting outside to eat, surrounded by the scent of jasmine or sitting by the pool, it is a perfect place to unwind and make the best of everything that Eastern Sicily has to offer.

Very modern villa generally well equipped and in a great location. Very friendly and cooperative owner and Salvo and Cerrada who were on site to welcome us were most helpful. Villa spotlessly clean. Could do with a little more furnishing  inside the villa. This would not be an issue in Summer when one would spend most time outside where there is plenty of seating.

Hi Guglielmo... We have had an amazing time - thank you so much for the use of your villa. It is a really beautiful place. We are leaving this morning to have a look at Etna and stay one night in Taormina, so will leave the keys with Salvo

Faboulous. The house, the scenario and the places are fantastic. The house it is very modern, with everything you may need inside and in a very quiet place. The sea side it is one of the best in the South of Italy, the water it is very clean and worm. All around it is plenty of very attractive towns to visit: Noto, RAgusa, Siracusa, Scicli, Modica, Marzamemi...
On holiday we like to stay in beautiful house to relax yourself and enjoy the company of our friends and so far, in many years, this one it is for sure the best house we had ever been.
For sure we go back there soon. Thanks so much.

È un posto da ricordare, di quelli che ti restano dentro per tanto tempo, solo ripensando ai profumi della macchia mediterranea diffusi dalle tante siepi attorno alla casa.
Abbiamo percepito appena arrivati l'atmosfera rilassante e unica del posto che ci ha accompagnato per tutta la vacanza.
Siamo una coppia con bimbi piccoli (4.5 e 1.5 anni) e abbiamo affittato tutto il complesso insieme ad altra coppia di amici con bimbi piccoli e ne è valsa proprio la pena.
Tutta la villa (casa grande e piccola) è meravigliosa, con spazi ampi sia interni che esterni e con tutti i generi di confort a disposizione, progettata e curata lineare e funzionale nei minimi particolari, ad esempio finestre e vetrate a scomparsa ampie e di grande pregio e pareti spesse che garantiscono una ventilazione costante (pur in presenza di temperature esterne rilevanti non abbiamo di fatto mai usato l'aria condizionata).
Anche l'enorme giardino circostante, curato e selvaggio allo stesso tempo è un plus non indifferente, oltre ovviamente alla piscina, stretta e lunga ma adatta al relax post gite al mare o nelle numerose località da visitare nei dintorni (Noto, Modica, Siracusa, Ragusa solo per citarne alcune di rilievo).
Il mare, che si vede anche in lontananza dalla casa, si raggiunge in macchina (15 – 20 minuti), ma basta spostarsi dalle spiagge più note per trovare paesaggi più selvaggi e meno frequentati.
Il proprietario, pur se non presente sul posto, è estremamente disponibile, sia con assistenza a distanza che con persone di fiducia che mantengono sempre tutto funzionante e curato nella tenuta oltre a essere sempre gentili e pronti a dare consigli “senza tornaconto”.
Abbiamo organizzato anche alcune lezioni di yoga a domicilio con insegnante molto brava, indicata dal proprietario.
In sintesi, sicuramente da raccomandare non solo a coppie con bimbi ma soprattutto a chi predilige location belle se pur isolate, con grandi spazi a disposizione, immerse in un paesaggio selvaggio, curate nei dettagli.

We went to sicily during the first two weeks of june. We were two families with children between 6 and 10. the house was great. There is very few furniture in the house but you wont miss anything because you will be staying outside under the pergola. During this time of the year you wont need the ac. Our children loved the pool and we did too, especially because it a little bit away from the house so the children could yell and sceam and it dosnot bother anyone. If you go there your children should be able to swim. On one side you will enjoy beeing "far out" on the other hand you have to buy everything in the supermarket. For a bakery you have to go about ten kilometers but that didnot matter to us. The garden was hudge, compared to that there is only a small but large enough area with plants and gras. In the evening you will love sitting on the roof with you nero d'avola and look at the stars. If you want to go out for the night you can go to Marzamemmi where life starts at about ten o'clock in the evening. We had a great vacation!

Hello!
We had a fantastic time in Vendicari, we were sad to leave the house and beautiful Sicily.
We have tried to take as much care as possible of the house which, by the way, is very well conceived as far as air air currents are concerned.
I would just add a few cupboards and wardrobes in the rooms, and a curtain in the bathtub.

We took this villa in Sicily totally out of season assuming that we would have found great weather for walks and sun bathing... Well, we got lucky, I swam pretty much everyday and I can tell you that the Sicilian sea is much warmer in early November than the Northern sea in August. Vendicari natural reserve is breathtaking and so are the cities nearby Noto, Modica and I especially liked Scicli. A little further away is Siracusa, which is also a must see.
The villa itself is amazing, it has a chimney and heating system, which we have looked, but not used ;) it's spacious and generally super cool. Actually, if I had to point out a draw back that's exactly it, too cool. Owners said furnishing is not completed and I would say that definately, at least for the winter, more cozyness is needed.
The garden is fantastic, we would walk out before dinner and get the herbs for coocking and the fruit directly from it! Quite an amazing esperience for city people like us.
There is one draw back, they are building nearby, and it's not beautiful. I must say no noise or nuisance whatsoever, maybe for the distance, I don't know. But at an aestetical level it's a shame to see something like this in such a beautiful natural reserve, unlike this villa which, looked at from the sea shore, literally melts with nature, so we don't feel accomplices to that botch.
Just a little itch in an otherwise amazing experience that we will recommend to everyone!
