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.

Places to visit on holiday in Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

A little further up the eastern coast of Sicily is the historic town of Catania, which boasts a mix of ancient architecture which almost rivals that of Syracuse. 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.

Cheap flights to Syracuse, Sicily, Italy

There are regular train services running to Syracuse from Catania Airport (CTA) taking just a couple of hours. Catania Airport is located just south of the city of the same name, and luckily for those of us trying to reach Sicily from the UK, British Airways, Monarch and ThomsonFly all provide direct services from British airports including Manchester (MAN) and Gatwick (LGW).

A little slice of heaven

5 of 5
The farm house is far enough away from Rosolini and from any roads to enjoy an unbroken peace. You approach through an unpromising looking waste land, but that disappears the moment you enter the the gate when all your aware of is the lovely courtyard and house. At the other side of the house from the front gate and courtyard the view unfolds across the property's extensive land which is being gradually planted as an orchard for olives and citrus fruits. From this field the eye is taken out across unspoiled cultivated land to the sea glinting in the distance. We stayed in January and our living space was kept pleasantly warm. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and well appointed as well as spotlessly clean. The south-facing terrace meant that even in January we were able to enjoy breakfast outside and admire the view. Miriam and Giovanni are truly kind and gracious people. Throughout our stay Miriam would present us with offerings of homemade Sicilian produce such as biscuits, and dried tomatoes. (She makes and sells preserves and their home-produced wine is delicious and modestly priced.) They offer a hospitality that comes from the heart. They do everything to make you feel welcome and to ensure your comfort and well being. Our hosts' children are now grown up and live independently but there is still a delightful family of animals - two dogs and three cats. All the animals are as friendly as their owners and we really enjoyed their company, as well as that of the hens, the cockerel and the goose. The local towns of Ispica and Rosolini are peaceful towns with pleasant squares and streets. They are virtually tourist free and offer a delightful, authentic experience of the Sicilian way of life. The farm house is very well placed to make excursions to the coast, to world-class nature reserves, to the nearby cave dwellings, dating back to the Neolithic, and to the magnificent Baroque towns, all within an hour's drive. The farmhouse feels as if it has always been there. But In fact Miriam and Giovanni have built it from scratch on a traditional model using reclaimed materials from ruined houses in the area. It does them huge credit that they have created this little slice of heaven on what formerly would have been no more than stony land. This is certainly as lovely as any place we have stayed in over 30 years of frequently travelling in the Mediterranean.

Lovely Property, Great Host, Fantastic Area!

5 of 5
I can only agree with the previous reviews here! 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*
