Ideally situated on the edge of the Vendicari Nature Reserve, a few minutes' walk from the local beach and close to the splendid baroque town of Noto, Villa San Lorenzo is a modern fully air conditioned villa for 14 people.
Designed to accommodate large family gatherings or groups of friends appreciating a certain degree of privacy on each floor, this substantial property is simply furnished with Italian decor inspired by the maritime setting. Several covered terraces and gazebos, as well as mature palm trees in the garden, provide pleasant shady areas for relaxing outdoor; and the beach-entry style pool means children can play freely in the water as if they were on the seashore.
Sicily conjures up images of sunshine, beautiful beaches and the warm Mediterranean waters - in fact the nearest beach is just a short stroll away from Villa San Lorenzo. The Nature Protected Reserve of Vendicari is almost on your doorsteps offering opportunities for exciting outdoors pursuits. Hiking trails, unspoilt seascape, typical Mediterranean flora and fauna are the main appeal of this area. The picturesque fishing village of Marzamemi should not be missed; it’s just a short drive from this villa and is a jewel of Sicily’s southern coast. Its stone-built fishermen’s dwellings recall a by-gone era where life was simpler and totally dependent on the sea; you will love it! Further south, you come across Pachino where you can taste its delicious sweet D.O.C. tomatoes exported all over the world as well as its renowned red wine.
A short drive from Villa San Lorenzo is Noto, famous for its unique and magnificent baroque architecture. For such reason the town has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here you will be impressed by a wealth of aristocratic palaces, ample squares and majestic churches. Moreover, Noto attracts wine lovers for its situation on the renowned Via del Vino (Wine Route) in the Val di Noto.
The small and quaint fishing village of Marzanemi is a short drive from the villa. The property is located in an enviable position just a few metres from beautiful sandy beaches and the edge of the Vendicari nature reserve with its many nature trails. The villa is also within easy reach of a number of magnificent historical towns, such as Noto, Ragusa Ibla, Megara Hyblaea and renowned seaside resorts all along the Gulf of Noto, featuring both sandy and rocky beaches.
