Perks for the Parents

This secluded, eco-friendly, and very private villa, with sea views, a swimming pool, outdoor terraces, lemon trees and tree house, is a short drive from the beach and the Vendicari Nature Reserve. It sleeps up to 10. The villa is made up of 2 separate buildings: Vendicari Senior (sleeps up to 8) and Vendicari Junior (sleeps 2), which can fit 2 families or extended family with extra privacy. There are 2 full kitchens and a family sized dining area, bunkbeds for the kids and a spacious master bedroom with a soaking tub. Relax by the pool, grill local seafood on the stone BBQ or get out and explore the excellent restaurants and food stalls, sandy beaches, Baroque towns, vineyards and Roman mosaics.

Why Kids Love it

The house is set a natural playground of large gardens with hundreds of trees including carob trees, lemon, orange, persimmon, figs, kumquats, almond, pepper, pomegranate, and different varieties of oaks. The tree house is an attraction but only suitable for kids over 10 when unaccompanied. The house is located in the nature reserve and is close to 6 sandy beaches – you can walk (about 20 mins) or drive (5 mins). The nearby town of Syracuse is great for exploring by foot and it has a Roman archaeological park, plus plenty of restaurants and gelateria. For a day trip, Mount Etna and the rip-roaring adventure park of EtnaLand is a 1 hr, 45 mins away.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 5 nights. The villa can be rented as a whole or Vendicari Senior and Vendicari Junior are available separately in low season (November through March except Christmas-New Years). The host is also interested in exchanges. Safety notes: the swimming pool has a safety cover but children should be supervised around it. Unaccompanied children should not be allowed on the top terrace of the Vendicari Senior' terrace and should be supervised in the treehouse. The pool is not heated but covered and so useable all year round. Up to 2 people can sleep in a tent erected in the treehouse. The villa has an eco washing machine and bio bathroom products are provided. There is parking for up to 6 cars. Weekly cleaning and linen changes are included. There is AC.

Style Notes

Rural, minimalist beauty. This architecturally stunning building blends effortlessly with its abundant natural environment. The interior is thoughtfully decorated with clean lines and contemporary furniture. There are superb views of the sea, surrounding carob and olive groves, and the nature reserve from the roof terraces and the beautiful beaches of Vendicari are only 5 minutes away. We love the al fresco dining space where you can eat surrounded by the scent of jasmine, the lovely open space of the living room that flows to the outside through sliding doors, and the modern simplicity of smooth white floors and walls – less is definitely more here.
