Make a holiday villa in Floridia your home away from home

Floridia sits in the southeast corner of Sicily, an alluring old town set amidst a rural landscape that’s known for its Baroque architecture and mansions. Dating back to the early part of the 17th century, Floridia takes its name from its two founders, the dukes of Floridia Flavia Bonaiuto and Lucio Bonanno Colonna. With proximity to numerous beaches, plenty of glorious summer sunshine and the historic city of Syracusa nearby, Floridia has no shortage of attractions.

In an area of charm and beauty, from gorgeous beaches to rural tranquillity and historic treasures, HomeAway has a selection of holiday villas in Floridia to ensure a wonderful stay in the area. Depending on the property type these holiday rentals can sleep between four and 20 people. With hot and sometimes stifling summers, swimming pools and air conditioning come as standard. Floridia holiday apartments also come with air conditioning and enjoy fabulous locations near the major attractions. Priced from just £150 per week, these Floridia holiday rentals are great value for money, but even more affordable options can be found at Augusta.

Things to do

-Historic buildings: Floridia holidaymakers have plenty of choices when it comes to wandering in and out of attractive old churches. They include the Church of the Madonna of the Graces, founded in 1720 by the Spaniards, and the Chiesa Madre (Mother Church) with a stunning Baroque façade and a three-sided clock. It was also founded in the early 18th century.

-Day trips: Floridia is 14 kilometres away from Syracusa. This 2,700-year-old city by the sea has an archaeological zone, and among its most famous sites are a huge cave called the Ear of Dionysius and a Roman amphitheatre. There is also an ancient Greek theatre cut into the rocks and a necropolis.

-Beaches: Although set inland, Floridia is only a few minutes driving distance from numerous sandy beaches that grace the coastline. A popular choice for many visitors to the area is Fontane Bianche, a wide sandy expanse with shops and restaurants nearby.

-Food and drink: A holiday villa in Floridia provides visitors with a host of bars, cafés and restaurants on their doorstep. They specialise in regional dishes that include ingredients such as oregano, rosemary, saffron and rocket, parsley and wild fennel. Siracusan fried pasta is a popular dish.

Weather in Floridia

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.

There are only two small cottages so a quiet and relaxing stay is almost guaranteed. The quality of the accommodation is good, both inside and outside the property with plenty of seating and shade. The pool is excellent and in a great position to enjoy the surrounding views. This is a good centre for getting to many beautiful towns and villages in this area of Sicily, with stunning baroque architecture and ancient Grecian temples.
