  • charming property
This period fisherman’s house has been beautifully renovated maintaining many of the original features of the building, including the local Comiso stone that was used in the original construction and terracotta floor tiles.

The property is located close to the sea (approximately 25-30m) in the beach resort of Sampieri, within the Province of Ragusa. Driving the coastal road Pozzallo-Marina di Ragusa, stands the lovely village of Sampieri, an administrative division of Scicli. It is an old fishing village, perhaps the most picturesque in the province’s shore, its stone houses jostled with one another, bordering a maze of narrow streets.

Sampieri boasts one of the most beautiful shores of all Sicily comprising a long sand beach and lovely rocky cliffs. ‘U stabilimientu bruciatu’ (Sicilian for “the burnt building”), lying on the eastern cliff, a former tile factory accidentally burnt in the mid 1900s, has become an attraction thanks to its impressive look, even chosen as a setting for numerous movies.

Within close proximity to the house there are a number of small shops, bars, restaurants, supermarket, barber’s, hairdresser, etc.

The Baroque towns of Noto, Modica, Scicli, Ragusa Ibla, which as a group form part of a United Nation World Heritage site, are within easy reach of the property.

Free WiFi.

Simon & Stephanie H. London
"Thanks very much for a romantic stay in this sweet house. We enjoyed the birdsong in the morning, the cool peace in the afternoon, and the cats in the evening.

It's a nice kitchen to cook in together and a great location. Thanks also for making us feel welcome on arrival".

David P. - U K
"Thank you for a lovely holiday in this little property. We had a great time staying here for the week. Sampieri is a small but charming village. The beach is great and so close to this property. The supermarket sells everything (particularly freshly baked bread in early evening). Look out for a man in a little van selling fresh fruit and vegetables in the early evening too.

There are lots of nice beaches and places to visit nearby. We had a good day trip to Noto and Siracusa".

Becky + Steve - Cowbridge South Wales
"We had a lovely holiday in late October, warm and sunny almost every day and a friendly welcome from Concetta and the locals.

We enjoyed the Nature Reserve just west of Donnalucata; the even bigger Reserve at Vendicari north of Noto; Ragusa Ibla; Noto; the train to Siracusa and the long drive to the Roman Villa at Piazza Armerinà
Arrivederci e grazie di tutto!".

Chris and Yvonne G. - Oxford
".. a quiet little village where the people go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

The apartment gave us everything we would wish for.. a solid base from which to experience the delights of South Eastern Sicily.. "

Appartamento bello e curato nei particolari, con a disposizione tutto quello che può servire per una perfetta vacanza. Ottima posizione dalla quale raggiungere con delle bellissime passeggiate splendide spiagge! Gentilissima la proprietaria così come la signora Concetta, veramente molto disponibili. E poi trovare il "il Commissario Montalbano" nella piazzetta vicino casa non ha prezzo! 😂.

Siamo stati a Sampieri alla fine di Giugno e, anche se con ritardo, ci teniamo a dare un nostro parere. Abbiamo alloggiato nella Casa del Pescatore: la struttura è molto accogliente, come essere a casa propria, arredata con gusto ed attenzione anche ai particolari. La posizione è invidiabile, a due passi dalla spiaggia ed ottimo punto di partenza per visitare la Sicilia barocca. Un grazie particolare a Concetta, sempre cordiale e disponibile, ed alla signora Fernanda, che abbiamo avuto il piacere di conoscere. Una posto dove sicuramente torneremo con piacere!

Appartamento curato, ben arredato e situato in una via tranquillissima a pochi metri dal mare. Abbiamo passato una settimana di assoluto relax godendo della cordialità degli operatori locali, di una splendida spiaggia e di un mare e sole che sicuramente ci mancheranno, torneremo certamente non appena possibile.

Una casa deliziosa e curatissima in ogni dettaglio, piacevole e comoda da vivere. L'ambiente è ben armonizzato con la natura, straordinaria e rilassante. L'accoglienza è stata gentile e discreta, calda e cordiale. Spero di tornare per un periodo più lungo.

Una vacanza indimenticabile, la casa perfetta nel luogo perfetto! A misura di adulti e soprattutto di bambini (7 e 9 anni), i miei han scorrazzato in lungo e in largo per tutto il paese senza crearci apprensione. A mio personale gusto lo spazio interno non sufficiente per le mie amate grigliate ma, pazienza, abbiamo avuto modo di sopperire alla grande con prodotti ittici appena pescati e verdure che il verduraio con l'apetta ci portava davanti casa, tutto molto bello, come una volta!

My name is Fernanda, I am a painter, calligrapher and writer (fernandapaternocastello.it) and I live in Catania (Sicily) and Barcelona (Spain), but my holidays house is in Sampieri, in the South of Sicily. It's a beautiful place and I, with my family, often go there.

I have restored the house with my daughter Eleonora's help, she is Designer (Elisava University in Barcelona www. eleonoramajorana. com).

My husband is a radiologist and he has worked in Sloane Kettering New York, our son Claudio studies Medicine at the University, he is photographer (www. claudiomajorana. com) and skater (Vimeo Claudio Majorana video 2010 and 2011). My children were Rotary Exchange Students in the U. S. A.

Either me than my husband are Rotarians.

We love Sampieri for the sea, for the sand dunes, for the inhabitants, for the shining sun, for the historical position.

Travelling abroad
Enjoying a comfortable and intimate bed and breakfast is the best way to discover Italy
(find here our commercial video in Italian). Here you can find pure bed and breakfasts and other kinds of accommodation, like boarding houses, inns, country houses, tourist rentals, family run hotels. This is because in Italy B&Bs are subject to specific legal and economic restrictions, but there are also other kinds of family managed accommodation that cannot legally use the "B&B" name. In our listing you will find the exact appellation for each property, and if you click it you will find all its specific features.
