The perfect base for a restful holiday.

Rating:  4 of 5 

Very comfortable accommodation. Well equipped. Fabulous pool and friendly owners. A great location for touring the Baroque towns and lovely beaches nearby.

Only downside was the steep, squeaky staircase from the mezzanine bedroom to bathroom, on the ground floor.

We had a lovely holiday and the weather was perfect.

Wonderful, serene getaway

Rating:   5 of 5 

We loved it here. It is so peaceful and serene and the apts were very, very clean and well appointed. We could hear the cow bells at night under the big sky of stars. It is just a short drive to the middle of the city where you can get all the excitement you like. Highly, highly recommend.

As a Mum with 2 adult daughters (students), finding suitable self-catering accommodaion can be a challenge - but this met our needs pefectly: 2 bedrooms each with its own en suite, a lovely kitchen with everything you woulld need plus a fabulous pool and gardens. The girls commented on the sun loungers being the most comfortable! For us (our 2nd holiday in SE Sicily), it was a good location - with easy acess to towns and beaches. We would definitely recommend - a well designed and maintained accommodation

Calm and Peaceful Accommodation

Rating:   4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Scirocco. It was calm and peaceful, with plenty of space in the garden to wander in. The pool is beautifully positioned, sheltering it from the breeze when it blows. The apartment was fine, beds comfortable and the bathrooms excellent.

The local area has a great deal to offer. There is a beautiful sandy beach at Pozzallo (and many others along the coast, but this was our favourite), plus lots of interesting towns to visit all within reasonable driving distance. We particularly enjoyed Scicli,Ragusa, Modica and Noto. For fans of baroque architecture, they were a treat. Other highlights were at Cava d'Ispica where the cave dwellings and burial chambers were amazing and of course chancing upon live filming in Ragusa of Montalbano and being able to observe that while we ate a light lunch in the piazza.

We highly recommend a holiday in this corner of Sicily and Scirocco was good value indeed.

Well Located, lovely apartment

Rating:   4 of 5

Maestrale was a spacious well equipped apartment more than suitable for 2 people. The description of the property is accurate. We enjoyed our stay very much and used the apartment as a base to see the surrounding towns of Modica, Ragusa and Scicli and daily visits to the beach near Sampieri. You absolutely need a car but this is clearly stated in the description and is evident if you look at the map. The properties are well maintained and the the pool and garden are kept tidy and clean. The pool itself is delightful and never busy. Georgio, the owner is helpful and provides recommendations, if asked, for restaurants. The only criticism I had is that for self catering in Italy the occasional kitchen accessory was lacking, particularly a cheese grater

We would happily recommend the property to friends if they wanted a rural property where you happy to use a car

Bellissima struttura a bordo di una lama con una splendida piscina circondata da piante mediterranee. Gentilissimi e ospitali i proprietari. Comodi e funzionali gli appartamenti, adatto per famiglie. La posizione e' strategica per girare modica, ragusa e scicli.

la posizione della struttura, in aperta campagna, molto design delle abitazioni, coerente con l'architettura tradizionale del luogo.... e la piscina che ci ha salvato dalle temperature elevate
