The agent gave us a warm and informative welcome, and was always on the end of the phone to solve problems and give advice throughout our stay. It is about 1 hour 40 from Catania airport and the roads are mostly new and very good in the area. Often driving was easy because he local roads are pretty quiet. The house is not palatial but is very comfortable and has everything you need. The walled garden and pool with the outdoor seating, BBQ and pizza oven are absolutely idyllic. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained and are a totally private, quiet oasis in the countryside. We ate a lot at the nearest restaurant (3 mins walk away) which is excellent and in Modica (12 min drive) which has fabulous food and atmosphere. You can easily visit lots of fascinating Baroque towns, Greek and Roman archaeological sites and lots besides. The Valley of the Temples is a long drive (about 3 hours) but certainly recommended and doable, as is Mount Etna (more like 2 hours), but closer treasures for ancient ruin enthusiasts are Syracuse and Cava D'Ispica (which is right on your doorstep)! Villa del Casalle at Palazza Amerina and Morgantina are also well worth the 2 hour trip. Syracuse and Ortygia are just lovely regardless of the ruins. There are great beaches within a short drive (we loved Sampieri). You can get all your shopping in Frigintini (less than 10 min drive), or in the 24 hour supermarket just outside Rosolini. The locals were all extremely friendly and helpful. The best days were spent playing and relaxing in the pool at home. We went with older teenagers who were very happy there (there is wifi!) but it would also suit families with younger children - especially because of the local restaurant and easy and fun self-catering facilities. We had a great time trying out the pizza oven (tip: make sure you have spare flour to get the pizzas off the paddle!!) it would also be fabulous for a couple or friend-group getaway.

Good housekeeping and gardening service. Shabby access road. Long and steep walk to shops, restaurants and beach, i.e. car necessary. Parking space for 2 vehicles inside locked gate. The pool with max depth of 1,4 m. was perfect playground for our grandchildren (6 and 8).
