The space

This small and rural cottage is called "La Dépendance" as it is located near our house. "La Dépendance" is just 3 km outside of the beautiful town of Noto, the Baroque town enlisted in the Unesco World Heritage List.
"La Dépendance" was built in the beginning of the '80s and has been fully renovated a couple of years ago, giving it a country yet stylish and modern feeling. Furniture was carefully chosen and renovated manually so to give our guests an edgy and chic atmosphere. The cottage is composed of a fully-equipped kitchen and of a big air-conditioned room where a loft conversion hosts a double bed and where a comfortable couch can easily be transformed in a queen-size bed. "La Dépendance" is therefore perfect for a couple looking for a romantic escapade or for a family with small children. The garden is private and completely fenced-in so, if you wish to spend your holidays with your four-legged friends we will be happy to host them too! Relax in the shade of our olive tree, taste the sweetness of our fig tress, take a nap in the hammock or cook a delicious bbq... you'll love this outside!
The seaside is just 7km away... you'll enjoy the quiet countryside and will have access to all the most beautiful beaches of South-Eastern Sicily in a few minutes by car. Vendicari is just 10 minutes away!!!!

Interaction with guests

We live next door and always ready to help our guests! However, we understand that people on holiday look for privacy so we won't bother you or come just to say hello! If you need us just shout out our names and we'll be ready!

Like everyone has said, Sara and Corrado are lovely hosts and quick to help with anything. We were there in April and Corrado made a nice wood fire to heat the house. The house is simple and perfect for a couple, two friends or a small family. The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with essentials like oil and spices to help you cook a nice meal. It is wonderful to sit under the big fig tree on the terrace in the morning sun, watching little lizards scurry over the stones and enjoying the peaceful view of fields and mountains. It is a secluded spot but thanks to other reviews we were prepared for this and managed to find it without much hassle. The location is a good base to explore the region of Noto, Modica and Ragusa. Beware of night-time driving! There are no street lights or street signs to help you find your way back. There were lots of dogs barking in the distance all night but otherwise this is idyllic. If you are looking for a peaceful and quiet place away from tourists and traffic, this is beautiful and relaxing.

Sara e Corrado sono stati gentilissimi non solo all'arrivo (che causa un ritardo del volo è stato diverso da quello previsto), ma per tutta la durata del nostro soggiorno. Si sono prodigati per cercare di risolvere dei piccoli problemi che abbiamo avuto durante il soggiorno riguardo il bagno e il riscaldamento e ci hanno dato dei preziosi consigli su luoghi da visitare.

After some days in busy Palermo, we very much liked the calm and relaxed setting of the cottage! Very simple, but on the 'countryside', clean, nice kitchen, nice to sit outside in the garden. Sara was very welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed Noto a lot: much better than we expected, we think best to visit in the late afternoon and the evening. Also we enjoyed the beaches in the Vendicari area (especially Cala Mosche, crowded but very nice natural bay, worth the walk from the parking). We also liked the small beach in Fontana Bianche, a bit up north. We certainly recommend the cottage for a stay to people who like to stay some days in a calm area, and are not looking for the 'grand luxe'. Very much value for money!

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, the location is absolutely perfect because it's in the middle of the countryside but still very well connected to all cities (only 10 minutes to Noto) and to the highway to Siracusa and Catania, you get to some amazing beaches in less than 30 minutes by car. the cottage looks a bit different now than on the pictures but it's super cosy and the garden is perfect for relaxing and having meals at the nice big table on the terrace. Sara and Corrado were really nice, helpful and always reachable. we had a great stay and would love to come back!

We stayed 10 days in Saras and Corados house and it was everything we wanted for our vacation. Peaceful and far from crazy city life. We didn't have a chance to meet Sara but she left us with very detailed information about everything. Corado was there for everything we needed. They had 2 very friendly and happy dogs :)) house is clean . Little advice, when you use gps and follow Corados explanation how to find house don't put Noto like your destination because gps is going to take you through city that you really don't want. You can put better Lidl, Rosolini, that is 6km after house but it's going to take you on the correct road. Just follow then Corados instructions where to turn and everything is going to be just fine :) we recommend this house for staying and we hope that we will come again but next time in fig season :)

I visited in July for a week with my wife. Sara and Corrado were very helpful and very friendly when they welcomed us into the cottage and were always available throughout our stay. The place itself is in a wonderful location; with a car you are within reach of many beautiful beaches (Cala mosche is particularly recommended), the lakes of cava grande, Modica, Syracusa and it is very close to the lovely Noto. The place also has everything you need for a nice stay. It was great to be able to come back in the evening, relax in the beautiful garden and admire the views ( you can even see the sea!). It made our holiday great!

The small cottage we rent is located on our farm and we offer a relaxing hospitality in the middle of our countryside.
