Fantastic location, sheltered terrace, all amenities close by.

5 of 5
We were well looked after by Margherita and her father Pietro during our stay. The apartment was easy to find and Margherita could always be contacted by 'phone during our stay should we run into any difficulties. We received good advice on trips and cultural activities from Pietro which also included likely travelling times which was a great help. The apartment was clean and well equipped, the furniture seemed to be very new and from Ikea with the air conditioning in the bedroom very necessary in the recent very hot weather. Being on the 7th floor and served by a lift we had fantastic views overlooking a park with views over Syracusa to Etna in the North and the sea and Ortiga out to our right.The kitchen was small but adequate to cook/prepare basic meals and we found ourselves eating fresh vegetables, cheeses and bread which were bought from shops which are within 2-3 mins walk from the apartment. There are snack bars locally (within 1 minutes walk) and many good restaurants within 5 minutes walk. Pietro recommended one at the back of the apartment and I must say it was fantastic. We did most of our restaurant eating locally and found them to be full of locals eating typical Sicilian food. There are indications the area is " up and coming" with a few trendy eateries, I found the food to be excellent and good value for money. Going to Syracusa is likely to be linked with visits to Ortiga which is 5 minutes walk to either of the bridges over to the island. Ortiga is very picturesque and a visit to the main square in the evening is a must. There is a greater draw for tourists here and the buildings are very beautiful, the shops on the main street are typically Italian and cater for tourists and locals alike. As Ortiga is the cultural and entertainment centre of Syracusa there are many restaurants, cafes and street entertainment to occupy your time. I heartily recommend this accommodation as a centre for a sight-seeing break or a relaxed break away. It is central with on street parking available for those wishing to explore the sites of South East Sicily and within walking distance of many restaurants for evening entertainment. The train station is approximately 300 metres away.

Lovely villa in a beautiful garden

5 of 5
We had a lovely week in this villa. It is close to the sandy beaches of Fontane Bianche with a rocky beach a few minutes walk from the villa. The house is well equipped with 2 good sized bedrooms and one bathroom - the second shower is outside but when we were there in June it was fine to use. The garden is beautiful and there is a large shady terrace for guests with lots of seating both for relaxing and eating. There is a bbq with a gas hotplate, excellent for cooking meat or fish. The swimming pool is small but perfect for a quick dip after a hot day sightseeing with lovely views towards the sea. The 2 dogs and 2 cats are very well behaved and were no trouble. The villa is well placed to visit Syracusa, Ortygia and the Baroque towns of Noto, Scicli, Modica and Ragusa. The Cavagrande del Cassibile nearby is an amazing experience if you are reasonably fit! Alessandro and his wife were perfect hosts, very helpful and happy to give local information. Their 2 small children are delightful. I would recommend this villa.
