Preferred Destination: New Delhi, Delhi, India
Alternate Destination: Mumbai, Maharashtra, India | Open to any destination

House | House Sitting Requested
Available Dates:
From March 26, 2022 until March 31, 2023


My villa is available for rental and/or home swap exchange. In low season (winter) I will consider also house sitting requests Please take a look at the pictures and contact me I'll be eager to write you back. I marked an indicative price it can be as low as 500/week or as high as 4,000/week depending on a lot of factors such as the season, number of people and, most importantly, the exclusive use of the whole place or the use of just one of the two separated villas. The price you see should be right attending season and volume of travellers of the period, however we can talk and I will just send you a 'Special Offer' with the right price if we need to suit your budget and we can... I can't set just one price on a given night because that same night can cost half of the posted price if you go for the small villa ) only or double for the big villa or triple if you want the exclusive on the whole place. I have added two more listings one called Villa Vendicari Junior and the other Villa Vendicari Senior, if you want to rent only one of my villas and not the whole complex. See links above. As a rule of thumb the price value works like this 1-Junior villa only, lowest possible 2-Senior villa only 3-Junior villa + exclusive (meaning no other family in the other villa) 4-Senior villa + exclusive 5- Whole place in use, meaning both villas and exclusive on the whole fenced property. Max value. Want to know how much exactly? Contact me and I'll send you a 'special offer'. This is an exclusive villa complex that has been published several times on architecture magazines and websites, located in the Natural Reserve of Vendicari, roughly 1 mile away from a sandy beach and in the vicinity of the Unesco World Heritage city of Noto, famous for its baroque architecture. The complex is made out of two buildings all set on the ground floor, for a total indoor space of 250sq mts, 20,000sq mts of garden, 700sq mts of terraces, a 13 by 3mts swimming pool, on the border with the natural reserve of Vendicari, a secluded location our of the hustle bustle of holiday makers. The bigger villa comprises of a living/dining room with fireplace, flatscreen, several arm-chairs and puffs, carpets and large wall bench; dining room with table for 12; fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, washer, 4 induction burners, electric oven, microwave, coffee makers (moka and French and American), toaster, electric kettle, crockery, silverware; 3 bedrooms one with double bed, one with bunk beds, one with two single beds and a pull out bed if needed; 2 full bathrooms with shower, bath tub, wash basins and bidets. There is a shower with hot water outside on the lawn and another by the swimming pool. The smaller villa comprises of a living room with flatscreen and double sleeping couch; there is also a bedroom with double bed; a fully equipped kitchen with 2 induction burners, microwave, espresso coffee machine and dining area as well as an en-suite to the bedroom full bath with shower and bidet.
