Make a holiday apartment in Pachino your home away from home

With HomeAway you can locate the holiday apartment in Pachino equipped with everything you need for a relaxing getaway. Here you’ll be on the southeastern tip of the island, minutes from glorious sandy beaches and close to natural parks and a catalogue of ancient historical sites. Holiday homes in Pachino tend to offer unbroken views of the turquoise Mediterranean, and provide outdoor space by way of shaded patios and gardens. At a destination with a warm climate, air-conditioning is a welcome comfort at many Pachino holiday homes, as are barbecues, perfect for balmy evenings.

Things to do

-Beaches. On the coast a short way from Pachino is Marzamemi, which doubles as a fishing village and small tourist resort, with an attractive sandy beach. It’s the beginning of a long series of lovely beaches extending north. A hundred metres offshore here is the Island of Brancati, which provides an interesting view for anyone enjoying a meal at a seafood restaurant on the waterfront.

-History. Pachino has long been picked as a shooting location for domestic Italian films, thanks to its charming appearance. Interesting landmarks in the old town include the Torre Scibini, constructed in the 15th Century as a watchtower against Saracen pirates. 25 kilometres north of Pachino is Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its fabulous ensemble of baroque architecture.

-Nature. Pachino is on the southern tip of the Vendicari Nature Reserve, which protects a unique and delicate eco-system thanks to the high salt content of its waters. It boasts a landscape of lagoons, beaches, sand dunes and rock forms that provides a stopover for a wide array of migrating bird species, earning it the nickname of “Bird Hotel”. It’s a fabulous spot too for a secluded seafront walk.

-Food and drink. Right next to the sea, fish is a big ingredient in cuisine around Pachino. Just some of the local seafood specialities include fried swordfish with caper and onion sauce; fish and onion soup; or spaghetti with either black squid or lobster and anchovies. Winemaking is also an important industry; Nero d’Avola is a local red that has its roots in Sicily’s ancient history.

-Syracuse. Syracuse is a few kilometres to the north and is a handsome city bursting with ancient, Byzantine and medieval history. The main Roman and Ancient Greek sites can be found in the Neapolis – admission will grant you entry to the Roman amphitheatre, Greek theatre and various ancient caves and quarries. The old town is also a must. Here you should see the Basilica of Santa Lucia, which houses a Caravaggio painting.

Weather in Pachino

Pachino has a hot Mediterranean climate, with sun and clear skies for most of the year. There’s beach weather here from around May to October, and temperatures reach well above 30 degrees in July and August. Rainfall is scarce in Sicily apart from isolated wet days in autumn and spring. In October temperatures start to slip back towards the low-20s and by January daily highs get up to the mid-teens. Despite the milder weather there are plenty of sunny days to enjoy, even in mid-winter.

Travel to Pachino

You can get to Pachino holiday apartments from abroad via Catania-Fontanarossa Airport (CTA), which is an hour to the north. It’s an easy drive along the A18 autostrada down Sicily’s southeast coast. There are regular bus services linking the airport with Pachino via the Interbus network. If you’re approaching Sicily from mainland Italy then you have a number of options – you could catch the train and connecting “railferry” to Messina from Cities including Rome and Naples, or simply catch the car ferry from Reggio Calabria to Messina.

Perfect, stylish retreat

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived at Casa Modesta (to a delicious pre-prepared Sicilian supper, plus essentials for the next day already helpfully in the cupboards), we knew this was going to be a great holiday. 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!

Brilliant Villa with sea views and wonderful garden

5 of 5
Spacious Villa fully equipped with modern kitchen, dishwasher and washing machine. Just four minutes walk to a beautiful sandy beach. We enjoyed days that were spent on local beaches as well as driving to nearby Avola for good value shops and some excellent restaurants. We also traveled further on some days visiting majestic Noto, Scicli, and Siracuse. We also did a longer trip to experience the narrow gauge railway that runs around Mt Etna. However, nothing beats sitting on the terrace of the Villa on a bright sunny day, with a cold drink before and after a visit to the two local beaches. Fabulous, except if it rains for several days.
