Bouganvilla is situated in a perfect spot with a wonderful view from the large terrace of the sea and small village of Sampieri. The village has a small Spar, an excellent butcher and a delicious Gelateria. The owners of the property, Ornella & Ramades, were extremely kind and helpful. We were shown where to go for our initial Supermarket shop; we used the village shops every day for the fresh locally grown veg and fruit. The house is very well equipped and comfortable and the swimming pool immaculately maintained. I was staying at Bouganvilla with my elderly mother and we could not fault our stay there. Scicli, Noto, Modica, Ispica, the castello di Donna Fugata , Donna Lucata (with an excellent ice cream parlour by the sea) and Ragusa are all wonderful places to make day trips to. None of these towns/cities are more than an hour away with plenty of atmosphere to absorb and many beautiful churches and cathedrals to visit. A trip along the coast road to Portopalo, the southern most tip of Sicily, is worth a visit for a delicious fish lunch by the sea! I would highly recommend the attractive, quiet home of Bouganvilla to anyone who enjoys the combination of beach, site-seeing and the occasional day of relaxing at the house. We plan to return next year!
