Book Now & Grow Green: 3 Trees Planted with Every Booking!

This Earth Day, join our mission to plant 3 trees for every booking made between April 22nd - 28th, 2024. Let's make a sustainable impact together! Learn more about our journey here >>

This sleek and modern three-bedroom villa exudes warmth and comfort and lies near the charming baroque town of Ragusa, on the Southern tip of Sicily.

The approach through luscious countryside brings you to a rustic, stone-wall surrounding the villa, in keeping with the harmonious, natural style which seeks to be at one with its rural environment. The entire property is set on one floor, and the open plan design across the living areas ensures a hugely social environment.

The large lounge features a set of very comfortable, long sofas facing each other, perfect for a board game or drinks party, with the gorgeous wooden coffee table located between the two. There is also a large satellite TV here for your entertainment. The fabulous modern kitchen includes everything you need for meal preparation, and with the lovely dining table adjacent, the chef need never be lonely!

Each of the three bedrooms enjoys a similarly modern design and fabulous en-suite facilities, as well as direct access to the garden beyond. There are two double bedrooms and one twin. All three rooms are brightly lit thanks to the huge patio doors, have large wall-mounted TVs, a wooden desk or dresser and are designed with your absolute comfort in mind. A splash of colour in each room creates an atmosphere of warmth and highlights the traditional sense of character.

Beyond the walls of the villa, you are surrounded by plenty of options to maximise your enjoyment of the famous Italian sun, all enveloped in an array of thriving plants. There is a large dining area alongside the outdoor kitchenette, shaded by the veranda. Also benefiting from a little shade is the poolside seating area with a sofa and coffee table – the perfect spot for an evening glass of locally produced wine in the peace and calm of the baroque Sicilian countryside.

The huge private pool enjoys the sun all day long, thanks to the remarkably open surrounding landscape, and beautiful spotlighting by night.

The location is peaceful, yet on the doorstep of all kinds of great local food and drink, as well as history and culture.

  • Villa Is Perfect

    So far, despite a gruelling journey, everything at the Villa is perfect and we are looking forward to an enjoyable break.

  • Villa Is Perfect

  • A very good stay

    on 16/10/2021

    Despite the “medicane” - heavy rain and wind - we had a very good stay. The house is very spacious (and we were 6 in it, but still had lots of space), perfectly equipped and so beautiful. It is perfectly clean also. Very beautiful swimming pool and big garden around the house.
    The owner welcomed us and during the whole week stayed in touch with us to make sure we had everything, he gave us good local addresses for shopping/visiting and was extremely helpful.
    We could not recommend Villa Gilestra highly enough. Thanks a lot.

  • An amazing time!

    on 10/07/2021

    After a year and a half of corona, this was the holiday we needed. Everything was wonderful: the house, the pool, the restaurants, the beach, the cities…
    We really had an amazing time! Thanks for your hospitality!

  • Very relaxing

    on 25/07/2020

    A very relaxing place thanks to the terraces, the pool, the rooms... It made us very happy!

  • Can't wait to come back soon

    on 14/09/2019

    Lovely home, lovely island, great people.
    We enjoyed our stay so much and can’t wait to come back soon. So nice to enjoy the pool, the quiet, the nature!

  • Lovely home

    on 20/04/2019

    Thank you for letting us be your guests in this lovely home. We enjoyed it very much! It's really worth a visit the Donnafugata castle with its wild garden. Our favourite restaurant was "Accursio" in Modica.

  • Tranquil villa

    on 15/07/2017

    The owner who greeted us has created the most beautiful, tranquil villa in a lovely, quiet setting. We had a lovely holiday - thank you!

  • Wonderful house

    on 21/05/2016

    Wonderful house, lovely location, brilliant pool! Nice and quiet, but well located close to Ragusa and the coast. Modern, well appointed house. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and the host was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely recommend it!
