Sampieri is a popular beach/village in the comune of Scicli. It has three large sandy beaches, and a little centro storico of fishermens’ houses. It is also home to the famous ‘Pisciotto’ – an brick factory destroyed by fire, which appears regularly in the Montalbano tv series. In the summer the population of Sampieri increases dramatically, but there is also a small year round population and it has a supermarket, bar, etc making it an ideal quiet spot for year round living. It’s less than 10 minutes to Scicli and about 15 mins from Modica and Pozzallo, and also has one of the few beachside campsites in the area.
