THIS IS PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

This place is heaven on earth! We are a Swedish family of five and have travelled extensively in Southern Italy and we all agreed that this was one of the best houses of all times. It is a beautifully restored stables, spacious and decorated in an old school Italian way. The garden is huge, with hammock, veranda (which our boys used as a football ground), two outdoor sitting groups, olive and pine trees, as well as lemon, orange and kumquat trees. We picked oranges every morning- lovely! The sea shore is beautiful too and perfect for our kids 8-13 years old, and the water crystal clear. (You have a good sea view from the house)

There are lots of things to discover only a short car ride away like, Siracusa, Noto, Catania and the amazing necropolis di Pantalica. And Etna too, which we didn't have time for this time.

Francesca and Carlo were helpful, generous and kind. Perfects hosts.

Once back in Sweden in was snowing and we can't wait to go back to this gem of a villa.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house for a stress free holiday - beautiful, comfortable, clean and spacious with air-conditioning, and WI-FI, set in a tranquil, rural location off the beaten track with stunning cliffs and sea-views.

The house is set in large grounds with a spacious terrace, various seating areas for either sun or shade, hammock, outdoor hot shower, (great idea!), and is surrounded by olive trees, almond trees, palms and flowers.

We used the outdoor dining and BBQ area daily and long into the night to enjoy leisurely alfresco meals.

The clear sea, (great for snorkelers!), and secluded rock bays are just a short walk away with amazing views of Ortigia.

A small grocery shop, and pizzerie/restaurants, which also do take-away, are just a short drive away and historic Siracusa and Ortigia just a 15 minute drive, car essential!

Thank you to our hosts Francesca and Carlo who were warm, welcoming and informative. We had a great time! A perfect house for a family holiday!

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Das Landhaus in den Feldern ist wirklich weg von allem, aber nur gute 5 Minuten Fußweg vom Meer und ca. eine Viertelstunde Autofahrt von Syrakus entfernt. Es handelt sich um ein altes Landhaus mit großen, hohen Räumen, die auch im Sommer schön kühl bleiben, in Mitten eines riesiges Grundstücks mit fantastischem Ausblick zum Meer. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man so benötigt, es gibt einen schönen Grillplatz und - bei uns besonders beliebt - eine Freiluftdusche mit warmem Wasser. Als Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge auch sehr zu empfehlen, da eben ganz nah zu Syrakus und allen möglichen anderen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Hausbesitzer sind ganz reizend und haben uns eher wie Freunde empfangen als zahlende Gäste. Wir waren zu sechst und allen hat es fantastisch in Plemmirio und in dem schönen Haus gefallen.

Une maison conseillée

  • 5 of 5

Tout était parfait. La description du site correspond bien à la réalité.

Idéal pour ceux/celles qui veulent profiter d'une belle maison, d'un environnement idéal, d'une plage "privée" à 10 minutes (à pied !) et d'un accueil chaleureux en italien et en anglais.

Pour un séjour au calme

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé une agréable semaine dans cette maison. C'est une demeure de charme, typique qui a de beaux extérieurs, jardin, terrasse...idéal pour les enfants. Nous avons été très bien accueilli, des denrées avaient été préparées par Francesca et son mari que nous remercions à nouveau. Nous avons pu installer une petite piscine pour les enfants sur la terrasse. Le seul bémol, que je n'avais pas identifié lors de ma réservation, est que la maison est en plein champs, il n'y a pas de route pour y accéder vous devez emprunter un chemin agricole . Cela rend difficile les sorties hors de la propriété qui en plus se trouve à l'entrée d'une plage/crique assaillie par les locaux et les touristes. D'ailleurs, les propriétaires nous ont conseillé soit de ne pas sortir pendant le WE, soit de sortir tôt le matin et rentrer tard le soir. Il y a une petite crique accessible à pied mais uniquement pour les adultes, elle est inaccessible pour des enfants - trop dangereuse.

Owner's Response: Alcune cale della zona (alle quali si accede dalla stessa strada che si percorre per raggiungere la proprietà), per la loro bellezza e vicinanza a Siracusa, sono molto frequentate nel periodo estivo, in particolare ad agosto; ma è un fatto a cui non possiamo porre rimedio e che speriamo venga ricompensato dalla tranquillità del luogo in cui si trova la casa, circondata da campi e lontana dalla confusione. Una volta arrivati vi dimenticherete di tutto! Per quanto riguarda la costa raggiungibile a piedi da casa è molto bella ma piuttosto selvaggia, quindi effettivamente può creare difficoltà a bambini di pochi anni e/o persone anziane.

Tranquilidad, mar y campo a un paso de Siracusa

  • 5 of 5

Fantástica ubicación en el campo, a un corto paseo a pie del mar. Es la base perfecta para explorar el sureste de la isla: a sólo 15 minutos de Siracusa y en un radio de 45 minutos de lugares como Noto y las reservas naturales de Cavagrande y Vendicari entre otros.

La casa es bonita, amplia, cómoda y muy limpia. Tiene mucho terreno, ideal para los niños y resultó muy agradable cenar al aire libre.

La guinda la pusieron los propietarios, haciéndonos sentir como en casa y con su inestimable información, además en español.

Repetiremos seguro.
