Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Terrific villa in easy driving distance to Siracusa (and Catania airport)

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic outside space that easily accommodates a large group. Well equipped kitchen too.

Not a lot to do in the immediate vicinity but only 15 minutes from Siracusa, maybe 30 from Noto and an hour from Catania airport so good base for exploring the SE corner of Sicily.

Key hand over process worked flawlessly and we were made very welcome.

The property lives up to expectations, the owners greeted us at the villa and were very nice.

  • 4 of 5

Great villa by the sea, very quiet and close to Seracusa. The villa lives up to the pictures on the web site. Its breathtaking ! The only drawback is the internet connection, if you really need an internet connection on your holiday you should not choose this villa. otherwise, its a great villa in a wonderful location.

Spacious and comfortable villa close to the sea

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable week in this villa at the end of July (2016). It was just what we wanted.

The villa is set in its own mature gardens in a quite up-market part of the town. The back of the villa has three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and a big hallway, all air-conditioned. The front, overlooking the sea, has a huge sitting room and well-equipped kitchen. There is a large terrace outside (with comfortable sofas and chairs and a big table for lunch), which is entirely shady except in the early morning and a sunny lower terrace. There is an internal courtyard with various large plants and also another semi-indoors area with a barbecue sink, and a small table to sit at, etc. The front of the villa is not air-conditioned, but most of the time there was a nice breeze coming from the sea. All the rooms have very high ceilings. The villa is beautifully furnished - everywhere you look there are lovely objects. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, with a nice informal area to eat. Pots of basil and mint were a very nice touch, as were the ubiquitous pots of beautiful succulents.

A path leads down the sea: perhaps 30 metres to the back gate of the villa, then another 30 metres to a really lovely little bay. The coast is all rocky here (I much prefer that to sand, but you have to wear shoes until you get into the water). The swimming and snorkelling is very good. There are almost no flies, but you have to be careful of mosquitos at dusk.

Fontane Bianche is a popular (with Italians - we encountered few foreigners) beach resort and the main sandy beach (about a kilometre along the coast) is crowded. There are a couple of small supermarkets and a fruit/vegetable market about 5 minutes' drive from the villa - easily walkable, though it is not an attractive walk by the road in the heat. There is a very large supermarket complex within 15 minutes drive, and you can go to the market in Ortigia (Syracuse). We didn't go to any local restaurants - eating in the villa was so nice. The baroque towns of Noto and Modica are within easy reach, and also the extraordinary gorges of Cassibile and Cava di Ispica; and much more, of course.

Vincenza, who owns the villa, was very helpful, coming by car to rescue us when we couldn't find the villa on arrival (I forgot to print out the map).

She speaks English. We also met her cousin who (I think) owns the next-door villa (also very nice - looks as if it sleeps 8) whose English is fluent and idiomatic.

Lovely villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The highlight of this villa has to be the great terrace with wonderful views out of the sea. At the bottom of the garden is a gate giving access to the rocky shore and it is easy to get to the sea from an access slip. The villa is comfortably furnished in a traditional style with many interesting local pieces of art. The owner left am excellent selection of bread, fruit and other necessary items that was unexpected and a very useful. The beds were comfortable and the showers, while over the baths, had plenty of hot water. Very quiet and peaceful (apart from the occasional and inevitable gardening in surrounding properties).

The motorway is about 10 minutes away and made it easy to get about the East Coast, There are some great places to visit nearby, although Sicilian road signs and tourist information need to be careful interpreted! While there are some mini markets nearby, the bigger supermarkets such as Lidl are to the South in Avola. While the villas is highly recommended, a few points to watch are 1) the internet access was provided by a mobile router which only worked in the evening and then intermittently 2) there are lots of bugs that bite in this part of Sicily. The owner left a basket with a selection of sprays and plug in units that should have puts more on notice especially when we went down to the sea 3) while not advertised, there is a TV but only Italian channels and no DVD.

The most stunning house and view

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. It is artistically decorated with local pieces, it is romantic but perfect for a family. Our 3 boys loved it, especially the light and space. The view is exquisite and we all enjoyed the patio and the beach below the house. The owner was so welcoming and left South food. Sicily is a heavenly place to go and the area the house is in is gorgeous with so much to do.

Wunderschönes Haus am Meer

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns vom ersten Augenblick an in diesem Haus wohlgefühlt.

Die Ausstattung ist perfekt, im Haus ist alles wichtige und noch mehr vorhanden.

Der Meerblick ist traumhaft, der Steinstrand gleich unterhalb und das Meer wunderbar.

Die Städte Syrakus, Noto, Modica und Ragusa sind nach kurzer Fahrt zu erreichen.

Alles in allem ein perfektes Haus.
