Malavilla, an ancient and traditional Sicilian farm, was being renovated in the early Nineties, when the stables became a welcoming country house. Recently, also the barn has been renovated and turned into three independent apartments with verandas that offer an incredible garden, valley and sea view.
Set in an uncontaminated landscape with dry-stone walls, olive trees and carobs, Malavilla is about 3 Km from Santa Croce Camerina, 8 Km from the seaside, 14 Km from Ragusa and 35 Km from Scicli.
The original structure of the building has a big courtyard made of local stone, separating the main building, in which owners live, from the building used in the past for the preparation of cheese and ricotta. This second building, now called Casa di Gina, has been renovated and turned into a guest house.
A little path made of local stone crosses the garden and permits to reach the two buildings obtained from the restructuring of the barn, the now called Casa di Grazia and Casa di Giovanni.
All the guest houses have air –conditioning, free Wi-Fi, barbecue, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, sun-umbrella and beach chairs.
Malavilla is surrounded by a beautiful garden with roses, geraniums, jasmines and also with palms and tall trees like jacarandas, erythrinas, chorisias and cypresses.
A big and well cared English-style lawn with a pond and its aquatic plants make Malavilla the best place for holidays.
In the lower area of the garden there is a magnificent African tree, the erythrina, with camel-coloured bark and dark green-coloured leaves, a tree that offers a special shade for relaxing moments.
We hope our words could explain to you why we are sure that Malavilla is the perfect place to enjoy the colours and tranquillity of our countryside.
These are the simple things that Malavilla offers to you.
Each apartment has a veranda with table, chairs and a deckchair to relax in the cooler summer hours.
