Absolutely stunning. The feeling of having your own private beach only a few steps from your house makes you not want to leave this place. A big garden surrounds the house and makes you get the feeling of your own private area. The always helpful Carlos met us at the gate when we arrived, showed us the house and told us about the area. The charming town Brucoli looks during daytime as a sleepy place, but when the sun goes down people arrive from long distances and turns it to a lively cool place. With a rented car you can easily reach the best cultural sites as i.e Siracusa, Noto, Mt Etna, Villa Romana.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

It is close to the sandy beaches of Fontane Bianche with a rocky beach a few minutes walk from the villa. The house is well equipped with 2 good sized bedrooms and one bathroom - the second shower is outside but when we were there in June it was fine to use. The garden is beautiful and there is a large shady terrace for guests with lots of seating both for relaxing and eating. There is a bbq with a gas hotplate, excellent for cooking meat or fish. The swimming pool is small but perfect for a quick dip after a hot day sightseeing with lovely views towards the sea. The 2 dogs and 2 cats are very well behaved and were no trouble. The villa is well placed to visit Syracusa, Ortygia and the Baroque towns of Noto, Scicli, Modica and Ragusa. The Cavagrande del Cassibile nearby is an amazing experience if you are reasonably fit! Alessandro and his wife were perfect hosts, very helpful and happy to give local information. Their 2 small children are delightful. I would recommend this villa.
