You can enjoy a peaceful location with a stay at Villa Santa Croce which is just outside the pretty town of Santa Croce Camerina. You will find a restaurant just 150 metres from the villa and some shops and other restaurants in the town. A short trip of 5 km from the villa will take you to some of Sicily's most beautiful beaches in the quaint town of Punta Secca.
The house has its own lovely swimming pool of 12 x 6 metres and two covered outside areas with furniture. You can spend hours enjoying each other's company and a swim together during the warmer months. The villa inside is also spacious and there is parking space outside for several cars. From the plot (about 100 m from the house) there is the most beautiful view of the valley and the sea.

A holiday at Villa Santa Croce means that you can experience much Sicilian character and ambience and also wonderful beach days with the family. Sicily in general is blessed with beautiful beaches, but this particular area is especially beautiful. Punta Secca has a long stretch of fine sand and turquoise blue water surrounded by a pleasant small town that is becoming increasingly popular due to it being used as a film set for an Italian drama series "Montelbano". The popular Marina di Ragusa is just 5 km away also with fine sandy beaches and a gorgeous old town with lots of character and cosy piazza's, plenty of shops, restaurants, a weekly market and some entertainment in high season.
There is much to discover in the district of Ragusa and the city of Ragusa approx 24 km from the villa. The classic Baroque town is located on cliff top above sea level with narrow alleyways and many marvellous architectural treasures that really should be explored. By car, there are many other historically and culturally interesting places to visit such as: Taormina, Agrigento, Siracusa, Noto and Vittoria.
