Country House Villadorata is a small boutique hotel near the Baroque city of Noto in southeastern Sicily, set amidst olive groves and only a short drive from the secluded, crystalline beaches.
How would you describe House under the Olive Tree in a nutshell?
House under the Olive Tree is one of two luxurious vacation rentals on the same property on the northern coast of Sicily near Cefalù. This typical Sicilian house has space for up to six guests. It is a very relaxed and authentic environment due to the natural color palette, which was used around the house as well as the traditional objects and vintage furniture that were brought in specifically for this house.
What do you particularly like about this part of Sicily?
Sicily is a big island but is very different city by city, village by village in terms of culture, food and coast. My father is from the north of Sicily, so I’m familiar with that idea of life, which is something our guests will get the chance to experience during their stay in this area. In my opinion, the land around Cefalú is one of the best sides of the island.
I also really like the different experiences one can take part in in this area of Sicily. Madonie, a small village in the mountains is a wonderful place for guests to explore and try some delicious food. Another fantastic drive with beautiful views is the track of the famous race Mille Miglia, which starts in Cefalù and then goes up the mountains.
Who is this vacation home ideal for, and who should rather book something else?
While there is enough space for a family of four at the rental, we would not recommend it for smaller children. It is however ideal for a group of people or a family with older kids.
