Make A Holiday Rental Villa in Ispica, Italy, Your Home Away From Home

The hilltop town of Ispica is situated in the southern part of Sicily, 6km from the coast in the south-west of the country of Italy. A holiday in Ispica is popular with people that want to relax and enjoy the sunshine, especially during the summer months. It can be busier at this time of year, and so booking your holiday rental villa in Ispica well in advance is to be recommended. The self catering accommodation in Ispica on offer is all of the highest standard, and has all you will need to feel at home from the moment that you arrive.

Things to Do on Holiday in Ispica, Italy

Amongst the activities to be enjoyed whilst on holiday in Ispica are swimming, water skiing, sunbathing, scuba diving and snorkelling. The surrounding hills also lend themselves to hiking and bird watching, and in addition, half or full day trips by bicycle are also popular (these can easily be hired locally). Of course, there are many more activities than this on offer, and your holiday rental villa in Ispica will have a welcome pack with more details.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Ispica, Italy

Ispica has a great deal to offer those looking for more than just sea and sand. The home of some outstanding Sicilian Baroque architecture, the monastery, cathedral and basilica are all worth spending time at. The nearby Cave Ispica is perhaps the most unique attraction, being 13km long, and having been inhabited for hundreds of years, even up until the nineteenth century. For travel farther afield, the use of a car is all but essential. A visit to Mount Etna should certainly be undertaken, as should a visit to one or more of the villages surrounding it. Some of these have unique castles and fortifications which make for some excellent photo opportunities. If you have the time, a trip out to a vineyard for a wine tasting is also worthwhile.

Weather in Ispica, Italy

Sicily boasts great year-long mild weather, and Ispica is no exception. Rainfall is pretty minimal, no matter what the season. The winters are mild and the summers hot. July and August see temperatures regularly touch 30 degrees Celsius or more during the hottest times of the day. During the winter, the temperatures are still warm when compared to the UK, with day time averages of around 12 degrees Celsius during the colder months of December and January.

Travel to Ispica, Italy

At just over 100km distance away from your holiday rental villa in Ispica, the major airport at Catania (CTA) is the logical choice of where to land. Accepting flights from most European countries on dozens of airlines, you can be sure to find a flight that suits you. Just two examples are British Airways flying out of London Gatwick (LGW) and Thompson Airlines flying out of Manchester (MAN). Car rental is advised, and can be pre-arranged before you leave.

Bedrooms are comfortable and everything was provided. The entire house is very clean and the kitchen is well equipped though only a small oven - which we didn't use as we tended to eat out. There is a really nice outdoor terrace too. The view if great but you do have a long (but nice) drive up the mountain and while it's a very secure and private place there are no conveniences to walk to, though we had an amazing meal at Turismo Rurale Avola Antica a 5 minute drive away. It's a good base for Noto, Syracuse, the Cava Grande, Vendicari and Modica and the drive to Akrai was one of my favourite trips. We saw plenty of the owner Ignazio so if you have a problem he is around. We don't speak Italian but we managed OK, though I think we had a few mix ups but that's to be expected.

The house is stunning - furnished beautifully and equipped with everything you could need in a stylish and comfortable home from home. The grounds are beautiful and spacious, the location is great (supermarket and great restaurants are very short drives away) and the owner Vanessa is both responsive and a mine of local information and recommendations. It's everything you would hope for from the pictures and more. Highly highly recommend!
