Get a flavour of rural Sicilian life in this former Sicilian baglio near Modica, set amidst dry-stone walls and surrounded by the countryside of south-east Sicily.

The owners of Pietra Bianca have restored the property from its original form as a classic rural baglio, traditionally a manor house with stables, courtyard and a tiny church, successfully preserving its atmosphere and uniqueness whilst bringing it into the 21st century.

The traditional courtyard remains largely unchanged, encircled by dry stone walls and still home to a magnificent centuries-old olive tree, but with the welcome addition of an attractive jacuzzi for nine people (warmed by the sun but otherwise unheated) together with tables, chairs and umbrellas. At one end of the courtyard, a covered veranda provides the perfect spot for al fresco dining and there is also an outdoor kitchen, barbecue and laundry room.

Indoor

Decorated in neutral shades and tastefully furnished, the overall feel is modern and stylish, with the added bonus of several well-preserved original features.

Enter directly into the elegant living/dining area. The slate grey floor tiles and stone arches remain of what was originally the baglio’s chapel, but the room is now furnished with large leather sofas and a chic glass dining table. A doorway leads straight into a compact but well-equipped kitchen, with an informal dining table and its own access out to the courtyard.

There are two ensuite bedrooms on the ground floor: a double that overlooks the courtyard; and a lovely twin bedroom (can be converted to a double). The second bedroom is accessed from a hallway, with a sofa, and stairs leading to the first floor.

The first floor is best suited to families with a quadruple suite: a double bedroom with shared bathroom and a twin room that is accessible only from the double bedroom. Both rooms have pitched ceilings. The first floor landing, at the top of the stairs, has a small seating area and overlooks the kitchen.
