Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in San Lorenzo - Reitani - Casa Cugno
Only 2 km from a picturesque fishing village, and 15 km from beautiful town Noto
This villa is in San Lorenzo, a beach resort, just 2 km from the fishing village Marzamemi, only 100 meters from a beautiful sandy beach. A footpath leads from the villa straight to the beach with crystal clear bathing waters. In the nearby town Marzamemi are local bars and good restaurants. The villa distances only 1 km from the stunning coastal reserve of 'Vendicari', great for walks and swimming. The village Marzamemi boasts many restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce such as swordfish or cherry tomatoes.
The enormous garden (appr. 2.400 mq.) surrounding the terrace is characterised by palm trees and prickly pear cacti, called “ficodindia”. The villa consists of two double bedrooms on the first floor (one with child bed), a bathroom with shower, a living room, a spacious kitchen with dining table and wood oven. The terrace with large shaded cover is ideal for outdoor eating, and aperitifs after a day at the beach, which is just behind the corner.
The Area: San Lorenzo marks the beginning of one of the most beautiful stretches of the Sicilian coast. Here the shore is characterised by golden sand beaches, turquoise seas and white limestone rocks. San Lorenzo borders on the natural reserve of ‘Vendicari’. Here you’ll find a breathtaking variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna, exotic beaches and Byzantine ruins. It is also a veritable oasis of rest and tranquillity for an array of bird species. Heading south towards the south-eastern tip of Sicily, you find a fishing village called Portopalo. Taking the road from Marzamemi to Portopalo, but turning off before an impressive castle on the sea, one can turn left and visit the old ‘Tonnara’, one of the most scenic and extraordinary sights to be seen in Sicily. Noto, a magnificent little city famous for its stunning Baroque architecture, lies 10 kilometres away. You can’t miss the traditional afternoon stroll down its main street.
Marzamemi: Marzamemi lies 2 kilometres to the south of San Lorenzo. The fisherman’s village has a Promenade, a beautiful Piazza and a port with vividly painted boats. The tradition of all things marine is still very much alive in Marzamemi today. Only recently has it become a popular destination for Italians who enjoy the combination of the area’s natural beaches and the vibrancy of an authentic coastal village. The village boasts many restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce such as locally caught and processed tuna and swordfish or the famous cherry tomatoes from nearby Pachino.
Syracuse: Syracuse is a historic city in southern Italy, the capital of the province of Syracuse. The city is noted for its rich Greek history, culture, amphitheatres, architecture and association to Archimedes, playing an important role in ancient times as one of the top powers of the Mediterranean world; it is over 2,700 years old. Syracuse is located in the south-east corner of the island of Sicily, right by the Gulf of Syracuse next to the Ionian Sea.
