his beautiful house lies nestled in a peaceful area between olive and almond groves on the old road between Noto and Avola. Villa Orto was bought and carefully renovated by her current owners over ten years ago. One can see and feel the love and passion that Valeria and Massimo put into their estate. Especially the garden and the trees, which the elderly but fit sicilian neighbours take care of, are a treat to the eyes; their organic products are naturally available to Villa Orto’s guests.

The house is composed of three bedrooms, three bathrooms a large living area and a well-equipped kitchen. One of the bedrooms with an en-suite bathroom is separate from the main house and accessible from the outside. A barbecue, a pizza oven and an outdoor shower are all at the guests’ disposal. The terrace and inner courtyard invite one to relax and enjoy locol specialities. Thanks to the construction methods used, Villa Orto provides a cool place to reside during Sicily’s hot summers. Four air-conditioners and ceiling fans also help out. The 110 m2-house and the two hectare-large estate provide a large family or befriended couples enough space and privacy to enjoy a relaxing vacation.

Villa Orto has a good access road that keeps the 1.5 km drive to Noto short. The surrounding beaches can be reached within 15 minutes.

Villa Orto and the area of Noto offer everything you could wish for a relaxing and cultural holiday in Southeast Sicily. Within 45 km there are several Baroque towns including Noto, Scicli, Modica and Ragusa Ibla (all World Heritage Unesco sites) and Siracusa with the unique town centre on the peninsula Ortigia and the Greek theatre. For those in search of stunning scenery, also close by are the natural reserve of Vendicari with 5 sandy beaches, Cava Grande with natural swimming pools, the necropolis of Pantalica, and the Monti Iblei with the beautiful small baroque town of Palazollo Acreide and its amphitheatre. From Noto you can also easily make a day trip to Mount Etna, Taormina or Agrigento.

I highly recommend staying at Villa Orto. The property is set in a lovely garden surrounded by hillsides and farmland. The garden is a work of art, which the pictures do not do justice. We enjoyed tomatoes, eggplants and other fresh produce grown there with all of our home cooked meals, which we ate on the patio with a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. The house itself is simple and comfortable. Swimming in the salt water pool was a daily pleasure. Although it is difficult to leave the relaxation of the property, Noto is only a short drive away. We also made day trips to Syracusa, Scicli, and Modica, in addition to daily drives to one of the nearby beaches (about 30 minutes away). Katia and Sebastiano were responsive and available for any questions. Villa Orto is a very special way to experience southern Sicily and I highly recommend staying there.

Lovely villa located close to wonderful Noto and surrounded with beautiful hills. The garden is absolutely fantastic with swimmingpool and vegetables and lemons to pick. In addition are Jochen and Katia very serviceminded, helpful and professionell. We really can recommend this magical place.

Es gibt Orte, an denen man sich gleich zu Hause fühlt und am liebsten nie wieder weg will. Hortus! Ein Ort zum Ankommen, Leben und Seele baumeln lassen. Dies ist vor allem Valerie und Massimo den wunderbaren Gastgeber, zu verdanken! Schöne Orte gibt es viele, aber hier spürt man das Herz der Eigentümer auf besondere Weise. Die Ruhe gepaart mit der Nähe zu Noto, Vendicari und vielen kulturellen Zielen waren für uns die perfekte Urlaubsmischung. Unbedingt empfehlenswert. Grazie Mille Valerie, Massimo, Jochen, Katja, Sebastiano für die Gastfreundschaft!

Sehr schönes, großzügiges Haus in unmittelbarer Nähe zum schönen Noto und weiteren Sehenswürdigkeiten in der Region um Ragusa


Die Villa Orto ist ein wunderbarer Platz, um sich zu erholen. Sie liegt in einem traumhaften und sehr gepflegten Garten, unweit von Noto. Wir (4 erwachsene Personen) haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen und wurden bestens betreut (von der Anfrage, über Buchung und bis hin zur Abreise). Wir würden diese Unterkunft zu 100% weiterempfehlen. Besonders haben wir auch die Zwischenreinigung, inkl. Wäschewechsel geschätzt. Dass wir die Produkte, welche im Garten wachsen benutzen durften fanden wir ganz toll.

Delightful! A perfect location in a peaceful valley with lovely views. The garden was an absolute delight, picking tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, herbs and delicious grapes was a treat and so many different parts to relax and enjoy. The house is spacious and well equipped. the best places we’ve stayed in Sicily, can only recommend. Team that support on the ground are super people.

Descrivere la bellezza di Villa Orto e’ difficile perché lascia senza fiato, varcato il cancello ci si trova immersi in un giardino dell’Eden. Un giardino meraviglioso con infinite piante e alberi diversi fa da cornice ad una casa in stile country ma contemporaneo e di design. Gli spazi sono ampi e ariosi e la posizione leggermente in collina permette una frescura deliziosa. La piscina e’ fantastica, ma il vero plus di questa casa consiste nell’orto a disposizione degli ospiti. Che delizia la verdura di Sicilia appena raccolta! Un grazie a chi cura ogni giorno con amore questa vera chicca a Noto.

An amazing house do not hesitate to book. The pool the gardens and the location are all top class. We loved the fresh fruit and salads from the garden and the privacy and beautiful pool area. The villa is wonderfully decorated very stylish and tranquil. Only a few minutes drive from beautiful Noto with wonderful restaurants.


Private, beautiful house set amongst landscaped gardens and olive groves. Bright, clean home with well spaced bedrooms separate bathrooms. Outdoor shower and pool another highlight. shaded outdoor spaces to enjoy the views. Excellent communication with the hosts including local tips on the south east. Just a perfect spot to adventure from and relax back to.


Wonderful stay, amazing location, fantastic garden, great check-in and out with Sebastiano. Practically perfect.


Lovely property with an outstanding & tranquil garden and pool. Surrounding area has great beaches and many wonderful baroque towns to visit and enjoy. Highly recommended.
