The house is situated in the territory of Acate, in the province of Ragusa, about 10 km from the fishing village Scoglitti and the archaeological site Kamarina; the nearest sea is only a 10 minute drive (Marina of Acate).
The context in which the house is located is unique, surrounded by a green garden and lush countryside planted with tangerines and rich in tropical fruits and biological products. The house is distant from other neighbours.
A few kilometers away is the famous castle of Donnafugata (km 29) with its golf course, the small village of Punta Secca (km 30) where you can find the places which have been featured in the series "Inspector Montalbano".
If you are lovers of the sea, the nearest beach is approximately 5 kilometers away and the coast line is a continuum of nice beaches, so you just have to choose your favorite (mine is the beautiful beach of Randello (Km 20) with its special sand dunes and surrounded by dense Mediterranean vegetation within a protected natural area), Punta Secca (Km 30), Marina di Ragusa (Km 35), the beaches Donnalucata and Sampieri (Km 56), Island of Currents, the natural reserves of Vendicari and Cava grande canyon of Cassibile with its lakes and waterfalls where you can swim in the refreshing clear water where the trout live (Km 100).
A short distance away are the archaeological sites with their museums Kamarina (Km 18), Gela (Km 25), Piazza Armerina and Villa Romana del Casale with its beautiful mosaics (km 65), Morgantina/Aidone and its museum (Km 80), Agrigento (Km 99) and the necropolis of Pantalica (Km 100).
In addition, for a tour of the late Baroque Ibleo you can easily reach the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Ragusa Ibla (Km 39), Modica (Km 53), Scicli (Km 52) and also Noto (Km 91), the island of Ortigia and the archaeological area of Syracuse (Km 115).
The town of Caltagirone with its beautiful ceramics is 60 Km away.
Sleeping inside this house is an experience of absolute wellness and relax, as it has a fresh and pleasant climate due to the green garden all around, and absolute silence. In the evening it's surrounded by pink and orange sunsets.
The house is spacious and can accomodate 10 people. It disposes of three large bedrooms: two with king size beds and one with three comfortable bunk beds in the same room.
There are two bathrooms (toilet, bidet, shower and one has a bath sa well): the first one is connected to one of the bedrooms and in it there is a shower; the second one has a bath.
In addition, there is a large living room with fireplace and a well equipped kitchen and dining room.
Outside there is a shower, sink, barbecue, tables and a cozy wood-burning oven suited to prepare the most delicious dishes and pizza (it will be easy and plesant to have a dinner under the bright summer starlight).

Additional Location Information
If guests want to spend a relaxing day at the beach, passing by the town of Scoglitti, they will find supermarkets, bakeries, fruit and vegetables and everything they need for a picnic lunch. On the way back, in Scoglitti again, in the bar in front the lighthouse, at the harbour, you can have a good ice cream (characteristic the "ricotta" flavour, sweet chease) or a granita (crushed ice-drink), i recommend the almond flavour.
Just in front of that bar and beside the lighthouse at the port (sea side), there is the folkloristic fish market where to buy fresh fish (during the week, from 3 pm to 5.30 pm about) carried directly by boats to the dock.
I suggest it for cheap prices and quality.
You'll can buy not less than a wood case (3-4 kg), but if it is too much for you, you can ask, and easily find, someone who wants to buy half a box and share it with you.
We highly recommend squids to cook on the barbecue or fried.
For grocery shopping, in addition to Scoglitti, there is the town of Acate (farther from the coast line and very quiet) that offers all services (including butchers offering quality meat from the region).
