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.

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.

Fantastic villa with large pool

5 of 5
This villa is huge but the pool house is the real winner. We spent every day down there and as it has its own kitchen we just filled the fridge with food and drink and spent every day down there. Then we spent the evenings in Corsa Umberto in Modica which is part of the old town with many restaurants. The grounds are a lovely place to spend a holiday and although the house has 6 double bedrooms we rented it even though there were just 5 of us as it is so stunning.

Brilliant value and a delightful property.

5 of 5
We (m husband and I and two kids aged 4 and 2) were delighted with Kaethe's property. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped - Kaethe had thought of everything you might need. The huge garden was a delight to relax in and the pool was pristine and in a really lovely setting. Kaethe was very welcoming and friendly, baked us a delicious cake, told us when there were local events happening she thought we would enjoy and even bought presents for our children. Casa Linde was in a quiet and felt secluded and was brilliantly placed for visiting all the beautiful towns nearby. You will need a car if you stay here but apart from that it is perfect. Incredibly good value and a wonderful host - I can't recommend it highly enough.
