Overview

Pool Modern Ideal for Kids

Distinctive, sophisticated single-storey villa in the heart of Sicily offers a beautiful rural retreat in the heart of the tranquil countryside.

While Casa Tacciano retains many its original features as a traditional farmhouse, full air-conditioning, underfloor heating and divine contemporary design blend perfectly with the rustic undertones to create a deluxe, historical villa with all the upgrades, we love in modern life.

The rustic exterior stone walls complement the glass-paneled, modern sections and both sit beautifully within the rolling hills of the leafy countryside. By night, perfect spotlighting creates a charming, soft effect on the walls and around the pool.

Entry to the villa is via a quaint stone path to the main terrace.
Entering into the long hallway immediately sets the tone for the fabulous villa that lies ahead. The long wooden table, dresser and bench stand out beautifully against the smooth blue walls, adorned with interesting artwork and cultural items, all brought together with the fabulous Anatolian rugs. From here you can access all the common areas of the house.

The main living area has a large L-shaped sofa and two leather armchairs, perched upon more patterned rugs. The sofas enjoy a privileged view of the garden, via the beautiful terrace. A second living area is to the far end of the open-plan space, and as well as a lovely set of sofas, has a satellite TV and iPod dock in the living room for you to get the party started!

The large dining area sits to the other side of the main living area, with a long table for all the party to gather at, and beautiful, traditional furniture. The patterned tile floor, wooden dresser and old beams over-head enhance the sense of character. A stone archway leads into the kitchen, a spacious, marble masterpiece with a double oven, double sink and huge island, perfect for preparing your favourite dishes.

There are three bedrooms in the main building and two more in the annexe, perfect for those wanting a little more space and privacy. All five are on the ground floor, perfect for those with limited mobility. Each bedroom has high-quality en-suite facilities and all of which are slightly different, with an interesting design, layout and attention to detail. The bedrooms are all beautifully crafted, with colourful, patterned walls to add a splash of colour and only the finest furniture and décor.

You will find great comfort throughout this lovely villa.  Take a seat in one of the fabulous loungers by the stunning infinity pool and enjoy the views of the nearby countryside and rolling hills in the distance! A white-tiled terrace flanks the pool, with a beautiful lawn enveloping it is luscious grass and colourful flowers. Overlooking the pool and terrace area is the veranda. With a set of sofa and chairs, this is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or a good book in the midday heat, protected by a little shade. There is also a dining table on the veranda, a little further along the terrace, also nicely shaded for your enjoyment.

Within walking distance or a short drive away are the local shops and restaurants, and only 12km away is the UNESCO World Heritage site of Modica, you are a stone’s throw from everything you could need (or want!) throughout your stay: entertainment, top-quality food and all sorts of outdoor pursuits.

Set amid the thriving, tranquil countryside surrounding Modica, Casa Tacciano is a historical villa at the heart of the Sicily. Enveloped in vineyards and rolling hills, this particular part of Sicily is ideal for anyone looking for a rural retreat with great proximity to local amenities and activities, with so many towns and interesting sites nearby.

Sicily is famous for not only for its exquisite wine and gastronomy, but also for its interesting architecture, thanks to a 1693 earthquake that flattened large parts of it and led to a creative rebuild, producing something that looks more like a film set than a functioning town. The baroque towns of the Noto Valley, including Ispica, Ragua and Noto, and the picturesque beaches of Fontane Bianche and Spiaggia della Marchesa are just a short drive away.
