Overview of Castello Cavica

What Oliver loves…

  • Explore the canyon’s grottoes, necropolis and underground castle—an archaeologist’s dream!
  • You’ve got easy access to golden beaches, but you may not want to leave the swimming pool with a stunning view.
  • French artist J. Houel portrayed this villa in a picture that’s been displayed at the Louvre museum in Paris.

What you should know…

  • A car with GPS is highly recommended.
  • The Wi-Fi signal is strongest in the communal areas.

 Castello Cavica, an exclusive villa in Sicily, sits on a hillside overlooking the Cava d’Ispica, a cavernous natural canyon with important archaeological sites. The villa’s beautiful terraced gardens include a solarium, hot tub and swimming pool, all with amazing views. Enjoy peaceful walks and slow living in a rustic setting, but with all the comforts of modern life.

Built in 1954, the villa was restored and renovated using local stone and wood. Its 7 comfortable bedrooms can accommodate up to 16 guests (5 doubles, 2 triples). Each bedroom has a private bathroom, air conditioning, minibar and TV. The lounge, which also has a 43” LED TV, and dining area are connected to the fully equipped kitchen. Dine al fresco in the shade with a panoramic view.

You’ll have bicycles available to you for countryside rides. Nearby Modica (10 km) is famous for Aztec-style chocolate brought by the Spanish in the 16th century; try a minced beef-and-chocolate specialty or more traditional flavours as you explore the steep streets. You’re also close to the beaches at Pozzallo (16 km) or other southern coastal cities.

This holiday villa is 50 km from the Comiso airport and 16 km from the Pozzallo ferry port.

Interior & Grounds

The villa can accomodate up to 16 guests across the 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. Out of the seven bedrooms, 5 are double rooms while 2 are triple rooms, each of them with private entrance and bathroom, air conditioning, minibar and LCD 26 TV. There are five rooms are on the ground floor and 2 further rooms on the lower floor.

The lounge area and dining room on the lower floor are connected to the fully equipped kitchen. The swimming-pool is the perfect refreshing break during your stay on a hot summer days.

The solarium area and the grass lawn all around the house furnished with sunbeds and lawn chairs will offer you real moments of pleasant rest and well being.

Map, Location & Local Information

Castello Cavica is a charming and comfortable Villa, located in the famous area of Val di Noto, cradle of the late-baroque art and architecture, more exactly in the land of Modica, city part of the Unesco world heritage site.

The location of Castello Cavica allows you easy access to the golden beaches of Pozzallo, Sampieri, S. Lorenzo, Cala Mosche, as well as the natural oisis of Vendicari and also the Southern extremity of Sicily with its sea town of Portopalo of Capo Passero (at a distance of about 15-35 Km).

From here it’s also easy to reach the charming baroque-cities of Ragusa, Scicli and Noto (at about 15-30 Km). Taking the highway you can also easily reach the cities of Siracusa and Catania. Given the location of the villa, it's advised to have your own means of transportation.

Interesting species of flora and fauna typical for the Mediterranean rupestral environment are largely represented in this area : no small wonder for you if it happens to see a peregrine falcon flying up in the sky or to meet a porcupine walking undisturbed between asparagus and wild fennel plants!

History

Castello Cavica was built in 1954 and was meant to provide decent life conditions to the countryside peasants which used to live inside the rocky caverns of the so called “Castello” even in the early post second world war period.

The background of this scenery is the famous cave, a majestic and picturesque valley characterized by the typical Mediterranean vegetation. The cave is an archaeological area sprinkled with various testimonies that sustain the continuity and the evolution of the human being during the centuries: prehistoric necropolises, christian catacombs, rupestral oratories and various dwellings.

Between the last ones, there is the aforementioned Castello, a residential complex, several storeys high, connected between them by interior steps cut in the walls, with cavities permitting the climbing.
