Perfectly located next to Noto and the Mediterranean coast, Lido is a contemporary villa where guests can entertain as well as fully relax in its multiple spaces both inside and out
Lido is an original and inspiring villa that sits on a gentle hilltop outside Noto, surrounded by cactus and olive trees and with breathtaking views of the town and the sea, all of which provide a kaleidoscope of colour and light.
The property includes three buildings, with the main house sitting at the highest point. Here, the ground floor comprises the sitting room in one wing and the kitchen with a dining table in the other, with further living space connecting the bot. A large covered terrace leads from either side, one with the outdoor kitchen and dining table and the other with a lounge area, accessed through various big, sliding glass doors.
The principal bedroom suite is on the first floor and it too has two terraces with stunning views to both the front and the back of the house. For those who are mesmerized by the view, and you really will be, stairs lead to a roof terrace where you can further gaze on the magnificent panorama.
A few steps lead down from the main house to the pool and the first annex from where you can admire the seascape from the shade of the pergola. The annex contains an en-suite double. A little further beyond is the second annex that sleeps two, also in an en-suite double.
The property is beautifully equipped with everything that guests will need whether they are partying, relaxing or enjoying both, inside and out. Stone, glass and concrete provide a calming backdrop to the colourful landscape outside and the collections of original artwork, ceramics and design-led furniture inside. Its layout makes it a brilliant place for three couples or for a family with older children.
Lido’s location, just 5km from delightful Noto and the sparkling coastline, is exquisite, and makes a fabulous base from which to explore this South-Eastern corner of Sicily.
