Wonderful villa with direct access to the beach of San Lorenzo, which is located between Noto and Marzamemi, only 1.5 km from the oasis of the UNESCO. The villa consists of three bedrooms, living room with sea view, kitchenette, bathroom, two bathrooms outside, verandas overlooking the sea, parking and land with direct access to the beach of San Lorenzo.
Please note that the air conditioning is only in the living room. Sleeps 5-6.
La casa è bella, ha un terrazzo che la circonda su 3 lati, quindi si può sempre scegliere tra ombra e sole. La posizione è ottima, sia per l'accesso al mare sia per la tranquillità (si accede da una strada privata chiusa da sbarra). L'agente immobiliare è gentile e disponibile. Il mare è quello di San Lorenzo, cosa chiedere di più?
San Lorenzo is a typical italian small summer village, with lots of houses mainly for summer vacation. In summer everyone from south-werstern sicily and plenty of tourists gather there. As this area is not a maintained resort, there are a few construction sites and empty lots here and there. We didn’t find that a problem.
For that reason the beaches (and the roads) are quite crowded, in particular at the weekends. As mentioned it seems to be mainly locals and a few tourists from other parts of Europe. The advantage is, that the water is warm and shallow and adults can stand within a few tens of meters, so it’s fine with small kids as well. Also the beach is frequently cleaned by the community, so there is no litter around. It seems to be a common family beach, there are plenty of small and medium aged kids any day. Few young folks hanging out, but not at all annoying. If you like the attractions for young adults you can find it a few 100m south along the waterline.
We've stayed there 2 weeks in July/August with a family of five, three "kids" aged 11, 15 and 18. It was hot (!) so went into the water often. As this house only about 30m away from the beach, this was very convenient and we were glad we didn't have to defend a spot in the sand. There is a fresh water shower right at the house which is very useful. And we sat in the shade on the patio of the house a lot. Those spots are very conveniently located and stay shady throughout the day. The kids did a lot of snorkeling out on the side of the bay, where there are rocks with plenty of fish and other animals to see. If you have smaller kids note, that although there is some space in front of the house, there is no “garden” or such for smaller kids to play.
One definitely needs a car to stay there and there is a parking space right at the house for two cars. A small convenient store is within 10 min walking distance and supermarkets in Pachino, about 15 min away by car. Also many tourist attractions are within reach by car, so we visited e.g. Noto, Siracusa, Etna, Modica, Marzamemi etc. just to name the highlights.
All in all we had a great time, and couldn’t think of anything we missed. There are nice people taking care of the house, everyone in Sicily was super friendly, the pricing is very reasonably, so we can recommend the place and will definitely consider to go there again.
For those who want to enjoy the sea, one of San Lorenzo is undoubtedly one of the best of South Eastern Europe. It is 14 km from Noto, property of 'UNESCO for its baroque buildings, 3 km from the village, 10 km from diMarzamemi Pachino, extreme southern tip of Sicily, where the Ionian Sea meets with Tues Mediterrano.
