Make a holiday apartment in Avola your home away from home

HomeAway has a choice of apartments and holiday homes in Avola for you to browse. The town is right next to the Ionian Coast, with its rocky coves and gorgeous golden sandy beaches. History abounds here, with stunning baroque cities and ancient ruins very close. Avola holiday homes are contemporary buildings, laid out with family getaways in mind, offering gardens and shaded terraces, as well as spacious living areas. Sicily’s hot climate means that many Avola holiday apartments feature the comfort of air-conditioning, while outdoor barbecues are a welcome extra on those warm summer evenings.

Things to do

-Local history. Noto is mere minutes from Avola, and is held as one of the most beautiful towns on the island. It’s filled with splendid baroque architecture from the 1700s, earning UNESCO status, as well as the popular billing, “Garden of Stone”. There’s a host of ornate churches, a cathedral and a small collection of municipal buildings, all in the baroque style.

-Beaches. Avola sits next to a gorgeous stretch of coastline, with long sandy beaches bookended by interesting rock formations and craggy coves. The Avola waterfront has a fine sandy beach, and there are many more to discover a short drive away. Just up from the town is Capo Negro, with a natural arch, and beyond that is the sweeping, shallow bay at Gelsomineto.

-Cuisine. The local food is exquisite and has strong links with the sea. Lobster, anchovies, swordfish and tuna are among the main ingredients of both starters and main courses, while a regional speciality is a fish and onion soup cooked in the Syracuse style, involving squid, clams and mussels in a garlic, wine and tomato broth. Almonds are also produced in the farmland around Avola, and are mainly used as a filling in various pastries.

-Syracuse. Syracuse is an exciting city, where ancient architecture is part of everyday life. It was vital to the ancient Greeks, and is another UNESCO site. Hellenistic buildings to visit include the Temple of Apollo and the impressive Theatre, which has 67 rows. Syracuse’s old town is also lovely, and sits on Ortygia Island, connected to the mainland by bridges.

-Nature. Head inland and you’ll come to Sicily’s answer to the Grand Canyon. In the valley of the river Cassibile there’s a gorge that reaches depths of 250 metres within the Natural Reserve of the Cava Grande del Cassibile. It’s surrounded by fragrant pine forest and is a great place for a swim or for sunbathing on the warm rocks around the water basin.

Weather in Avola

Avola holiday apartments are in one of the warmest parts of Sicily, known already for its hot weather. The climate here is Mediterranean, with long summers bringing beach weather from late-April through to late-October. Mid-summer sees highs that soar above 30 degrees, and consistent rainfall is unheard of at this time of year. Spring and autumn conditions are moderate, with some warm days. Winters are mild and bring more rain than any other season, with January getting highs in the mid-teens and about eight rainy days each year.

Travel to Avola

Catania Fontanarossa (CTA) is around 70 kilometres north of the town of Avola. It’s a mid-sized airport with mostly seasonal connections with the UK via budget airlines. It’s a simple drive to Avola, along the A18 autostrada, which runs parallel to the coast. If you’re using public transport then there are bus services from Catania to Avola. For a quicker journey you could also take the train from Catania to Syracuse on the Messina-Siracusa line, and then catch a taxi or bus to your holiday destination.

Fantastic - perfect location

5 of 5
Very nice place, right by the sea

Excellent, clean, comfortable, ideal pool, clear directions and helpful advice from Stephanie. Good

4 of 5
The flat was ideal for us as 2 people. Airy and light kitchen and sitting room, very clean and good WiFi. Pool was great, area private and quiet. Stephanie was very helpful and thoughtful with excellent suggestions. Kitchen would benefit from more equipment (tea towels etc). But this was minor. Good location but definitely need transport.
