Wonderful calm villa on a hill in the countryside some 5 kilometres away from Noto. The house was even more beautiful and bigger than expected: three sleeping rooms, one with access to the terrace in front of the house (the terrace has an amazing view over Noto and until the sea), a huge and beautiful living room and a very well equiped kitchen with another sunny terrace. Maria and her dad were very nice and helped immediately when the gas in the kitchen was finished. You need a car to go there, and there is no Wlan, but we knew both in advance. Perfect location for trips to the sea and the towns in the southeast of Sicily. We would love to come again!

Hello Maria !! We loved the house very much, as we said we would have liked to live there forever… We felt very welcomed by Maria and her Father (who came to look after the garden), Maria went to the trouble of buying me some natural organic eggs (very important for us!!) and is generally very lovely, we also were very sad to leave Zaza and the cat, both adorable, who come with but not into the house, we very much enjoyed feeding them and they welcomed us like family every time we came home! Actually we stayed at home a lot too as its so pleasant just to be there you almost don't want to go out. The house itself looks just like in the photos etc, (but bigger in reality) but it's difficult to describe how wonderful it is, maybe it best described in contradictions, it is grand and yet simple; it's like living in the wing of a palace, and yet homely; it's comfortable and also very stylish; it's incredibly peaceful, but really close to Noto, which is lovely, great restaurants, cafes, history, art, locals - we spent one evening sitting outside a restaurant on a very chic looking street at dusk, when out came three youngsters to play and kick a ball with our kids and the boy of the other family sitting there, and we suddenly felt like locals and very Sicilian… I would go back again and I fully recommend it although I kind of want to keep it a secret which is the greatest recommendation of all!!

Four of us just spent a wonderful week at Villa de Grande. The villa was built in 1928, formerly the home of a noted Sicilian author. We enjoyed cooking in the very well-equipped Italian farmhouse kitchen, and eating in the gorgeous formal dining room, casually in the kitchen, or best of all, out on the large terrace with views of Noto in the distance (Noto lit up at night with a full moon reflecting on the sea was magical). The living room and bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, and the villa was clean and quiet. Maria Novella was a lovely hostess, with prompt communication and good local recommendations. The villa has no local numerical address, so she met us at the historical cemetery in Noto and we followed her to the villa. She even led us to the local supermarket the first night to make sure we found it. The property description does note that the villa is 4 km from Noto; in fact, it is about 5 km up a road into the hills from the outskirts of town, and 10 km from the most convenient public parking in Noto. You absolutely need a car to stay here! Overall, we loved our stay here, and would highly recommend it to a group of friends or a family. Thank you Maria Novella!

The familyhouse of Maria was what we expected: lovely grand sleepingrooms for the three couples and a nice living- and dining room. The kitchen invited us to cook all days nice Sicilien dishes. From the different cosy places to sit we had a beautiful view on the valley and see. The dog Zaza was very friendly. Thank you Maria for your hospitality. We loved the house.

Maria was an amazing host, the check in was seamless and she greeted us with a lovely plate of local biscuits. The fire was on in the house and we felt at home immediately. The communication with her was excellent and she gave us local recommendations. We had a fabulous week at Ville De Grande, it was very relaxed and easy. Our two small children were very happy playing in the safe environment and serving food to the cat and dog on trays! Noto is a lovely town with some great restaurants which is a short drive to the house.

We LOVED staying here with Novella. The house is beautiful on the inside as much outside. The views over Noto and down to the sea are amazing. The house is just up the hill from Noto, about 5 minutes drive away and max 15 minutes to the beach, with views over the entire area. There is a perfect verandah where we would sit while the children were playing in the garden. Inside the house was perfectly clean and the kitchen and all rooms are perfect. We would always, with no hesitation come back to stay again.
