Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Syracuse, Sicily, Italy your home away from home

Syracuse (Siracusa) is an ancient Greek town on the south eastern coast of Sicily, Italy. Syracuse, whilst having a wonderful, modern atmosphere, has amazingly strong links with its ancient origins, through mythology and the staggering range of ancient monuments that still stand, many in a seemingly impossibly good state of repair.

Things to do in Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

The Ortegia region of Syracuse, Italy, lies on an island, and is the ancient centre of the town. Mythologically important for the Spring of Arethusa, Ortegia is awash with some of the most amazing monuments and ruins you can find. These Temple of Apollo is the oldest example of a Greek temple still visible, and easily rivalling those of Rome and Athens for splendour. Across the New Bridge, the Neapolis Archaeological Park in Terminite Hill is a magnificent place to start your exploration of the relics of the area, allowing you to see the tell-tale differences between the Greek and Roman remains that adorn the region. There are also a handful of medieval relics to explore from a Syracuse villa, including the imposing Maniaces Castle.

A Syracuse villa is the perfect spot to gain a cultural understanding of Sicily. The town is perfectly positioned for full explorations of Sicily, and as the second largest city, the communications networks are excellent. There are many fantastic cultural courses to take, and the Sicilian cooking courses in Syracuse are known for their quality. Tourists can also enjoy craft workshops, learning traditional puppetry, ceramic and painting skills. Wine tasting sessions are particularly popular, allowing you to find your favourite Sicilian wine before heading to one of the excellent restaurants within the town. Whilst there are a large range of ‘tourist’ restaurants, these are best avoided if you would like to experience a little culture, and there are some fantastic local restaurants to discover if you look.

Of course, those staying in a Syracuse villa with a pool will be perfectly prepared for the hot summer months, but if you don’t, the proximity of the clear waters of the Mediterranean will be a real treat. There is plenty of swimming available from Syracuse, and you can easily arrange sailing, deep sea fishing and scuba diving excursions of the highest quality during your stay in a Syracuse villa, pool or not!

There are also plenty of paths to take inland, whether on foot, bicycle or on the back of a Sicilian pony. The wood and scrubland that stretches towards the interior of the island makes for perfect walking and riding terrain, with exceptional views reaching miles over the landscape and out over the glistening waters of the Mediterranean.

Weather in Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

Summers in Syracuse are wonderful, and with daily temperatures climbing into the mid 30’s (°C) on most days from June until September, a Syracuse villa with a pool is an almost priceless commodity, allowing you to have a relaxing dip before breakfast, a cooling siesta or even a romantic glass of wine around your Syracuse villa pool watching the sun setting in the evening.

The villa itself is exquisite - modern, clean, the latest in everything! Supping a cold one in the infiniti pool whilst watching the sun fall below the hills and mountains isn't a bad way to end the day! Hidden at the top of a hill just outside Noto it feels like you're a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the beach/bars/restaurants and local towns - but actually you're only 15 mins away from the sea. So when the mood takes you and you need a beer and a perfect pasta lunch, there are so many great authentic Sicilian places to sample. The sea is crystal clear turquoise, and warm. The beaches are spotless with miles of sand to wander on - perfect for the kids. If you want to venture further afield you can hit Syracuse and check out the extraordinary food markets as well as the awe-inspiring ancient Greek and Roman ruins. All in all; Casa Pedro is one of the coolest villas you can stay in, in the most amazing setting, in one of the Med's greatest islands! I'll def be back!

Stephanie met us on arrival & spent about an hour explaining everything about the apartment, where to eat & where to avoid, plus great advice about the area & things to do. The weather was very hot (about 33 C) so the aircon in bedroom 1 was very welcome & worked brilliantly. The Wi-Fi was decent in most places, but be aware that it doesn't reach bedroom 1 as it's on the opposite side of the apartment on a different floor to the internet router. Bedroom 2 is below the router & would have a good signal as did the balcony area. It's lovely to sit on the balcony at the large table with a glass of your favourite drink or simply on the comfortable chairs & relax in the peace & quiet. This was SO NICE! The bed was comfortable, the shower was powerful, the kitchen was totally functional & the bathing platform is about 2 minutes walk away. Finally, Retroscena is a must visit local restaurant that Stephanie recommended & we went there twice during our stay as the food was so lovely, the service was really good & the prices were fair. Highly Recommended 5*
