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.

The most impressive monuments are actually a little more recent than those of Syracuse, but highly impressive none the less. Access to Mount Etna is excellent from Catania, and those wishing to visit Europe’s most active volcano will have plenty of opportunity.

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 owners were helpful and welcoming, the property clean and well maintained. The pool is fed with natural spring water and is the most wonderful pool I have ever swam in, with the most wonderful view. We were a party of 8 and found the villa comfortable with plenty of seating arrangements to suit all situations . We found the villa a great base for exploring this beautiful part of Sicily. Cassibile nearby was great for informal pizza and a few sundowners. Further afield NOTO, Ragusa and Modica were all fantastic, with jaw dropping architecture and wonderful food. Great beach at LIDO di NOTO and beautiful seaside village at Marzamemi. Also, well worth a visit to the Greek/ Roman amphitheatre at Syracuse and would definitely recommend Mount ETNA, for its natural beauty and splendour. Stayed for 10 days, wished I had 20.

We found there everything we needed and even more: clean and comfortable house, very privat yard with outdoor shower, grill and hammock. Our private view to volcano Etna and town Catania was worth 1 milnion! :D We are really glad that we picked this place for our stay. Nando was very helpfull and even gave us some info about the places we should visit and the places where we should be more carful. Thank you and best regards, Nando ;)

At the bottom of the garden is a gate giving access to the rocky shore and it is easy to get to the sea from an access slip. The villa is comfortably furnished in a traditional style with many interesting local pieces of art. The owner left am excellent selection of bread, fruit and other necessary items that was unexpected and a very useful. The beds were comfortable and the showers, while over the baths, had plenty of hot water. Very quiet and peaceful (apart from the occasional and inevitable gardening in surrounding properties). The motorway is about 10 minutes away and made it easy to get about the East Coast, There are some great places to visit nearby, although Sicilian road signs and tourist information need to be careful interpreted! While there are some mini markets nearby, the bigger supermarkets such as Lidl are to the South in Avola. While the villas is highly recommended, a few points to watch are 1) the internet access was provided by a mobile router which only worked in the evening and then intermittently 2) there are lots of bugs that bite in this part of Sicily. The owner left a basket with a selection of sprays and plug in units that should have puts more on notice especially when we went down to the sea 3) while not advertised, there is a TV but only Italian channels and no DVD.
