Amaras is located at 5 minutes driving distance between the fisherman village of Brucoli and the lovely Megarian town of Augusta. The villa on the sea is Placed in one of the most quiet and elegant residential area of ​​the territory of Augusta.

The northern seaside land of AUGUSTA where the house is located is caratterizzata by HIGH CLIFFS, among the most beautiful in Sicily, alternating clear rocky beaches located in the middle of rocky coves where the salt and the power of water has shaped walls forming jagged marine arms similar to the fjords of Northern Europe, but Also digging deep underwater caves (Whose exploration is recommended only to Those Who have some experience in underwater exploration). It must be said That All sicily eastern cliffs are preferably visit early in the morning, Allowing them to admire the spectacular sunrise horizon of the Ionian Sea. Vetrano is the fjord where the house is located and is quiet and perfect for snorkeling.

Do not miss THE SBARCATORE: Give 10 minutes trekking down the cliffs to enjoy the view and the clear water and you'll come back for sure. There's a charming LIGHTHOUSE at 3 km distance in an area with a couple of bars where you can enjoy the best 'crushed' sandwich ever tasted at night time. Ask for 'The Lighthouse' or 'Helena' and everybody will show you where to go and do not miss a daily and a night visit.

Even if the closest sandy beach is' Agnone '(driving north on the SS 114 eastern Sicilian direction Catania) I would suggest to avoid it (dirty and theft risk) and drive south either on the ss 114 or the highway to the nicest' Fontanebianche 'and' La Marquise 'south of Syracuse,' Eloro ',' Vendicari ',' San Lorenzo '(my favorite) south of Noto.

The most uppealing upcoming events are taking place on July 30 at 8 pm at GREEK THEATRE SYRACUSE: 14th Turandot by Giacomo Puccini, 15th and 16th Cavalleria Rusticana by Pietro Mascagni, 22nd and 23rd Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

I had a wonderful time in Sicily and Nadias rental worked out perfect. She is great with communication and everything was as described or better! It is very quiet at the house but minutes from a downtown area. There is also a nice large supermarket just up the street. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet comfortable place to stay when visiting Sicily.

A vacation place for sure worthy recommendation

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely perfect accommodation. The photos provided on the advertisement indeed do not reflect how nice it is in reality. A spacious, bright flat, equipped with everything needed to feel like at home. Impressive furniture reflecting the good taste of the owner. Easy access to the never overcrowded beach with crystal clean water and marvellous landscapes. A supermarket with a reach offer of Italian food products and wines just 800 metres away. We had warm contact with Nadia, the owner, whose hints given always with a charming smile were so helpful – thank you so much, Nadia. Our vacation time was thus perfect. A hint: a car is recommended to move around efficiently.

Quiet & Pleasant Villa

  • 4 of 5

The reception was really friendly.

We were a little lost and the host has come to find us in Augusta's downtown.

Villa is very spacious.

Beds are very comfortable.

Outside terrace under patio is really pleasant.

The villa is situated in a not touristic zone and thus very quiet.

A little creek very natural and quiet is located very close to the villa.

A little weak point and constraint, for electrical capacity reason, you may just use 2 electrical machines at the same time (air conditioned ,...).

Very nice owners ;-)

To be recommended !!!

If you love rocky beaches, fishing, eating fish, waking up to bird song you are in the right place.

If you are looking for a place from where you can easily move up and down Sicily you are still in the right place.

Augusta, on the east coast of Sicily between Syracuse and Katane, is a very strategic location: only 20 'from Catania airport, 2 hours from Comiso's and 3 and a half hours from Palermos' airport.

At a distance of 500 meters there is a huge supermarket, a bakery, a bar, a pharmacy. 2 km at the hospital and an atm machine.

20 'from the Greek town of Syracuse, 30' from Catania, 30 'minutes from the barock of Noto, 30' from the natural reserve of Vendicari, 1 hour from Taormina, 1 hour and a half from Etna.

The ANCIENT TOWN OF AUGUSTA is actually an island, made by cutting an isthmus in the 16th century and connected to the mainland by two main bridges. The oldest one will let you enter the old town through the ancient DOOR SPANISH Both from and you'll enjoy the view of the CASTLE SVEVO.

Augusta is plenty in churches and it worths to coffee or in its main square Piazza Duomo.

Daily MARKET mon to sat in via Marina Ponente. Daily Further market on the north side of the town (before the bridges) in via Soccorso, big Thursday market via Bruno Buozzi.

The FISHERMAN VILLAGE OF BRUCOLI is the perfect place for dinner, with its fish restaurants and pizzerias. You can go there early in the morning and buy fresh fish from the fishermen at 7 am in the main little square, enjoy a drink before lunch or just sit in a restaurant with a nice view of the bay. Take a look at the CASTLE ARAGONESE located on the northern side of the village at the entrance of a second in little hidden natural bay That really worths a visit.

Brucoli looks like a watercolor painting with all the colors of a painter's palette: deep blue sea to the bright green of the Mediterranean vegetation with its aromatic essences and prickly pears That climb on the white limestone rocks of the northern foothills of the mountains Iblei. On this view stands in the distance Mount Etna, situated right on the horizon.

All the Mentioned place are reachable by car. Almost everything at 5 minutes driving distance.

At blackberries than half hour driving distance the best places to visit are obviously Syracuse, Vendicari, Noto, Marzamemi, Pantalica, Cavagrande, Katane, Taormina, but as all tourist guides are full of infos about them I'll try to suggest alternative routes not far from Amaras in the Following lines. Still feel free to ask: we'll be happy to talk about them!

There are a couple of ancient sites located on the south coast of Augusta, That between tanks, pipes, chimneys and refinings plants various small treasures miraculously escaped the wild industrialization of the coast to the south of the Megarian City: the Greek town of MEGARA IBLEA and southern Thapsos, on the enchanting Peninsula Magnisi. Both of them not easy to be found, almost abandoned, forgotten by the authorities has been covered by weeds, the Megara Iblea's mocaic floors ruins will take your breath away and will let you understand a lot about Sicilian and Italian (a) cultures. To find them drive south on SS114 direction Syracuse. Try to see brown signs 'Megara Iblea' and 'Thapsos' hidden and broken. There's a ticket to pay for Megara Iblea. Thapsos to park the car and take a free walk on it. On the northern coast of it you'll see a few incendio nebula.
