These ex stables have been cunningly converted into a romantic hideaway looking out onto the soft countryside in the Valley of Noto. It has everything you need for a peaceful break, your own swimming pool, quiet surroundings, lots of outdoor space for eating, relaxing and sunbathing. Inside the house the ground floor is an open space with a sleek and modern kitchen with a cleverly designed wine-cellar where you can help yourself to wines from selected local wineries. In just over a 5 minute drive is the picturesque Baroque town of Noto.
La Vallata refers to the valley that this little gem looks out to. It is tucked away in the countryside 3,5 kms from Noto and 6 kms from the gorgeous beaches of the nature reserve of Vendicari. With its back to the valley, the front of the house enjoys a stunning view of the gentle countryside that surrounds the house.
This romantic hideaway is the result of a clever restoration of what was once a horse stable.
The paved area in front of the house is perfect for relaxing and taking in the views and the sounds of the countryside. On the side of the house, 400 square metres have been dedicated to outdoor living. where there is plenty of space for outdoor dining and for making some awsome barbecues. Up a few steps is the delightful pool paved with lava stone and a wooden platform with sunbeds.
Immediately inside, is an open space that includes a sleek kitchen with a large dining table. Down a couple of steps is a small wine-cellar where you can help yourselves and leave money in the kitty.
The living area is very cosy with a sofa-bed and armchairs. Stairs lead up to an open mezzanine that houses a double bedroom.
The double bedroom looks down onto the lounge area and has its own seperate entrance from the back of the house. The bathroom on the ground floor is comfortable in its simplicity and features a large shower built into the rock.
