Villas with enclosed pools are rare in Sicily but a stylish, family-friendly villa with a fenced-off pool near the beach is practically unheard of! It is, therefore, no surprise that Villa Caponegro is a hit with family groups. Part of a new generation of recent restorations, this villa is designed and furnished to contemporary taste, with added touches of luxury, making it a unique place to stay.

Just outside the coastal town of Avola in south-east Sicily, a country road leads through olive groves, citrus trees and farmhouses to the villa gates. Once inside the grounds, you will immediately feel like you have arrived in your own private oasis.

The sizeable garden with neat lawns and mature trees feels private and ideal for children to run around, while the stunning white villa has a visible range of enticing design features for enjoying the warm Sicilian summer to the max.

You can choose to spend your time outdoors in the inviting enclosed pool, lying back with a book in a hammock or relaxing on the comfortable seating area on the terrace. After a splash in the pool, head to the beautifully designed outdoor shower for a refreshing soak, while the designer outdoor kitchen with dining area is a delightful spot to gather for meals together.

The living space inside is spread over two floors and feels pleasantly practical and welcoming. Here you can relax on a large sofa in the living room, cook up a storm in the modern kitchen with adjacent dining area or even go to the gym as you even have a private fitness room. The bedrooms are spacious and bathrooms are modern.

Sandy beaches and nature reserves are nearby so a quick drive to the coast is a must, as is exploring the beautiful historical centres of nearby towns and villages.

For those who love combining the beach with trips to nature reserves and historic towns, Villa Caponegro makes a great base. Just under one hour south of Catania by car, the villa sits just outside the coastal town of Avola, a short distance from Gallina beach, the baroque town of Noto and the Cavagrande nature reserve.

The nearest sandy beaches are family friendly, and all have parasols, sun loungers and casual beach bars. Although popular in summer, the beach stretches on for miles so you can always find parts which are less crowded.

For those who love more natural, remote bathing, head to nearby Cavagrande del Cassibile nature reserve for its pools and waterfalls. The Vendicari nature reserve is just a bit further away and home to sand dunes, beaches and lagoons with a fantastic array of wildlife. Here you can also enjoy excellent walks along the coast. You may even spot migrating flamingos and nesting sea turtles on the shore.

Within half an hour from the villa is the southernmost tip of the island at the lighthouse of Capo Passero and the charming fishing village of Marzamemi. The main square makes a gorgeous setting for a drink and is particularly buzzy in summer when it hosts an international summer film festival.

Even if baroque architecture is not your thing, you cannot fail to be impressed by the handsome UNESCO protected baroque towns in the area, including Ragusa, Modica and Scicli. Noto is the nearest and one of the most impressive. Ideal for a stroll around the historic centre, you can admire magnificent honey-coloured stone churches or enjoy a gelato or pizza in one of the many restaurants.

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

With an enclosed pool and garden, as well as practical, spacious interiors, Villa Caponegro is instantly appealing to those with children. You can even prepare meals outside in the villa’s outdoor kitchen while keeping an eye on little ones running around the lawn.

The living space is all on one floor and furnished with family groups in mind, so parents and their children can immediately feel at home here. When it’s just too hot outside, the air-conditioned interiors offer a comfortable place to recharge the batteries in comfort. For those who need to plug into the outside world, the villa comes with wi-fi too.

The beaches stretch on for miles in this part of Sicily so children of all ages will love letting off steam on the sand or in the sea. More active families will adore exploring the nearby nature reserves with wildlife spotting a fun way to entice everyone on long beachside walks.

Although visiting historical sites may not always appeal as much as the beach, the promise of a gelato after a tour around a Baroque town or Greek ruins will always be well received. Children are warmly welcomed in restaurants and bars in Sicily, and they will love the food too. Pizza, pasta and ice cream are always excellent quality while the more adventurous can try delicious fresh seafood platters at a variety of restaurants along the coast.
