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.

Floriana's apartment is very central & convenient for the local shops, bars & restaurants of Ortigia and is clean & today with everything we needed. There is a small supermarket just around the corner which has most things needed on a daily basis. Despite the 'no traffic' rules in the town, there did appear to be traffic (the usual scooters) at all hours, though the apartment is pretty quiet, especially the rear, twin room. The Air-con works well (we had 40deg days!) and the 3 little balconies are secure for toddlers. Ortigia is lovely, but for a family with small children, a two-week stay was perhaps, not ideal, as there is only one pebbly 'beach' on one side of the island - good for sheltered snorkelling but little shade until mid-afternoon - and a tiny patch of sand & stones on the other side - shady in early morning only. The main drawback we found was parking... it is a real problem on Ortigia and I was lucky to only get one fine. There is a car park, but was often full & at 10€/day, would have been v expensive over our whole stay. There are some lovely places to explore nearby, but the thought of moving the car deterred me from making the most of these. Ortigia really needs a 'Park&Ride' type scheme... but this is Sicily and that would be unlikely and the police would not issue temporary Resident's Permits even for a two-week stay. I would love to return, but only when the children are older.

                                                                                                      Villa Stella is a truly amazing place - a few steps down to the very clean sea - a pool to relax around with plenty of shade and sun loungers. Views of Etna on a clear day plus sun rise and sunsets make this a magical location. The owner was very helpful and accommodating with local recommendations and quick to respond when we had some minor power-outs. The practical stuff might be of help to some people: kitchen is quite small but there is an outside kitchen too with gas burners and a sort of BBQ grill which is quite tough to use even for the most hardened barbq-er. If you are a chef, take your own knives! Loads of space in general - even with 8 of us (inc 4 teenagers) we were all very comfortable. There is a/c in every bedroom which isn't advertised but very welcome. The villa would have got 5 stars but for the fact that it feels a little unloved - needs painting, needs a few loo seats, grass cutting, trees maintaining. But don't let this put you off - it is a fabulous place to spend some special Sicily time.
