The hosts Giovanni and Franco made us feel very welcome. The sea was in walking distance from the villa and a supermarket/bakery was 3 mins drive away. Fontane Bianche Beach was 5 minutes drive with a lovely restaurant malafemmina overlooking the beach. Giovanni made us some Sicilian delicacies to try, pizza, arranchi and cannelloni to name but a few which was very agreeable. Franco’s garden is a credit to him a lovely place to sun bathe with the cleanest pool I have ever seen.
What a beautiful place! Giorgio and Lucia met us at the exit of the highway to show us the way to the house. Such lovely, welcoming and warm people! We arrived on a Sunday and they had provided fresh vegetables, pasta, bread and a bottle of wine, so that we did not have to take care of food shopping until the next day. Giorgio takes care of the grounds and the pool, but does this so early in the morning and so discretely, you would never know he had been around. However, if you're interested, he'll tell you everything you want to know about the nature and wildlife in the area!
The drive up to the house was about 15 minutes and when we arrived we saw it was exactly what we had been looking for. The house is even better than the pictures (!) in a green oasis with a beautiful view over the area and in the distance Ortigia (Siracusa) on one hand and, on a clear day, the Etna on the other hand. Inside, the house is cool and very comfortable, equipped with anything we could think of to make our stay more pleasant. The infinity pool is so very inviting that it was hard to decide whether to stay home and enjoy the pool with a good book or go and discover all the beautiful villages and sights in the area. But do make sure you go out, because there is so much to explore (the baroque cities of Siracusa, Noto, Modica, Ragussa, the fisherman's village ofMarzamemi, a hike to the Cavagrande Canyon, not to mention the pristine beaches..)
I hope we will have a chance to go back one day and can absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing vacation!
Grazie tante Lucia e Giorgio e se mai vendete il vostro oglio di oliva fattemi sappere!
