Casa Pietra Bianca - Historic watchtower in Sicily with amazing panoramic views of the sea
with private pool, sleeping upto 16 people
This beautiful old watchtower of Sicily has been restored to its former splendor after lengthy and exacting renovation work. Whilst maintaining its original charm, the structure has been transformed into a modern and welcoming residence fitted with all mod cons and designed to offer the maximum levels of relaxation and comfort.
The house is situated on one of the highest hills around Scicli. Thanks to its dominant position, the terraces offer splendid views that stretch from the surrounding countryside filled with olive and carob trees, to the sea. The interior ambients are perfectly laid out and well equipped, with air conditioning, TV and Wi-Fi Internet connection.
The main structure is distributed over three floors; in the front part there is a beautiful courtyard where it is possible to organize al fresco lunches and suppers. The annex also has a furnished outdoor area and is distributed over two floors.
Thanks to its particular position and extremely favorable wind conditions, Modica beach is one of the most popular places for surfers and windsurfers.
