About the property

Fontane Bianche, villa, sea, rocks, waterfront, Siracuse, garden, terrace

Villa Mare Arabico is a spacious white villa with garden and huge terrace on the waterfront of Fontane Bianche, a summer resort 15 km south from Syracuse, which is one the most beautiful and interesting cities of Sicily. The villa has a unique location directly on the shores. A platform amongst the rocks will allow guests to enjoy a relaxing sunbath. When you plunge into the sea in front of the house it feels as you are diving straight into your own private salt-water pool. Many shaded areas and terraces surrounded by lush vegetation will be the perfect frame for pleasant outdoor eating.

The villa can comfortably host up to 6 people. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a spacious living with high roof and big windows with sea view, separate kitchen.

Its proximity to the stunning baroque towns of Syracuse, Noto and Palazzolo Acreide also make it an excellent base for a cultural exploration of this UNESCO World Heritage area.

The location is ideal for exploring Sicily's southern coast:

- 15 km of the beautiful town of Syracuse

- 10 km from Noto, a town rebuild in baroque architecture after the earthquake of 1693.

- 25 km from the harbour of Marzamemi, a picturesque fishing village with a nice boulevard, good restaurants and shops with local products;

Other Activities: Escursion to Mount Etna, 100 km away

Beautiful view from a spacious terrace and a warm inviting home!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a gem! The view is exactly as advertised and the house is very well appointed, especially the kitchen. We loved the breakfast dining area as well. The owners were terrific to work with. Highly recommend!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The villa was spacious, the host was super friendly, the kitchen was fully stocked (and I mean FULLY), and the view was spectacular. Normally, I try hard to find at least one negative about my experience so readers know that my review is from a real person who had a real experience; however, I really can't find one. Okay, I think I have one negative...I stayed only one week when I should have reserved the villa for at least two! Thank you. //john

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.
