About the Property


Inside: accommodation at Cubo al Mare is on two floors. The ground floor is one extremely large and light open-plan kitchen-diner and living room. Huge floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors ensure that the Sicilian sun you’ve been craving all winter floods in and capacious comfy sofas and armchairs are strategically positioned to make the most of the stunning views. There is also a fireplace and, just off the main room, a bathroom with shower. A sensuously curvaceous flight of stairs leads to the first floor, which is home to two large suites with luxurious bathrooms and a slightly smaller third double bedroom, which uses the downstairs bathroom. All bedrooms boast such wonderful sea views that waking up in the morning is a real event! A second flight of stairs leads from the first floor up to the roof terrace. Lightly-coloured parquet floors and pure white walls run throughout the house, creating a pleasing and essential uniformity of style. The bathrooms are beautifully designed with glass walk-in showers, modern white suites and cool grey walls.

Outside: Cubo al Mare sits in around 10,000m2 of lawned gardens dotted with palm trees and other Mediterranean plants. The main entrance to the house is via a large decked sea-view terrace, which is furnished both for dining and relaxing. Large umbrellas offer shade for those who require a little respite from the sun and, with all the house's large glass sliding doors open, the terrace becomes a natural extension of the indoor living areas. If you thought the views from garden level or the first floor were pretty much unbeatable, head up to the roof terrace, from where 360-degree panoramas stretch out for miles and miles... Once up there, you might not want to come down... and for this reason comfy chairs have been supplied!

Think About


The Area

Exploring the local Area

Cubo al Mare is set right on the lovely coastline of the Lido di Noto just a short drive from some fabulous sandy beaches, the fascinating baroque town of Noto and the beautiful natural reserve of Vendicari. Noto is the most easterly of a chain of baroque towns now protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is also perhaps the most perfect of the baroque towns, which were all rebuilt in flamboyant style following a major earthquake in 1693. Vendicari Nature Reserve boasts some of the finest sandy beaches in Sicily, which are pleasingly under populated even in the height of summer. Vendicari is also home to thousands of migrating flamingos, and sea turtles nest on its beaches.

If hiking in the hills is your thing, then there is some spectacular scenery in the rushing streams and waterfalls of Cassibile and at the Paleolithic burial sites in the dramatic valley of Pantalica.

Siracusa is just half an hour's drive away, and a day there is highly recommended to anybody spending a week or two at Cubo al Mare. A little further afield, the other baroque towns of Modica, Ragusa and Scicli are easily reachable in a day.
