Villa Paola is a lovely holiday home and the experience was excellent.
Our stay at Villa Paola was very nice and we had a wonderful time. The location provides good access to many local beaches, restaurants and attractions. The property manager was kind, professional and attentive and did all he could to make our holiday to Sicily a success.
Loved our stay!
This was the highlight accommodation of our visit to Sicily. Francesco is such a welcoming, trusting and friendly host, willing to help with literally everything and answer all questions. The house is perfect for two couples, two friends or more, or a small family. There is a huge lawn to play on, two patios, both with tables, one patio with an outdoor grill. There are screens on all of the windows, which is such a relief in the summer from the bugs. The house is decorated tastefully and practical at the same time, and each room is air-conditioned. Being able to wash our clothes was a huge plus, and there is a fold-up rack in order to dry them outdoors. Be sure to ask how to wash a normal load, it always varies from country to country.
The property is completely private with a locked gate and there is room to park two cars within the private grounds. There are a couple of pizza places not far, and only about 1km away there there is a nice grocery store for basics, with a terrific deli counter with fresh cheeses and cold cuts (Viale dei Lidi, 3, 96100, Fontane Bianche). Larger supermarkets can be reached only a few minutes drive in the next largest town. The Fontane Bianche beach is very nice and it has what looks like a nice beach restaurant that we did not have time to try. From this location, day trips can be made to Syracuse/Ortigia, Noto, Ragusa, Modica and more, which makes it a very practical place as a base.
We would return to this accommodation without hesitating and we can't thank Francesco enough for his kind hospitality and welcome. Highly recommended!
Superlative,friendly,caring and helpfull owners
We got to Fontana Bianca where we were greeted by the most charming couple Francesco and Francesca in there clean and well located villa.
The villa was as described and the landyard was superb with the lemon
tree, the flowers and the mint plant.
Francesco and Francesca immediately made us fell at home and were most helpful in giving us tips for visiting Sicily, where to shop and where
to go for our groceries and meat and fish.
They went out of there way to make sure that we were confortable.
This is a place where we would return any time and Sicily is beatifull.
The sea is close by and there are several beaches not far .
They made us discover typical Sicilian delicacies and especially the ricotta
pastries at the near by "café cuba"
The villa is well located in a quiet surrounding with easy access to the main highway.
We had all the facilities we needed to make our stay a memorable one.
The welcoming basket was a very nice gesture and was very much apreciated.
They are very well located to permit visits of all the notables sites like Syracuse,Noto,Catania,Ragusa etc
Would recommend highly.
Thank you, Francesca & Francesco!
We had a brilliant holiday! The house is very nice (modern and clean), but the outdoor area is the best thing by far; a very spacious (but still cosy) outdoor area with tables, chairs, sunbeds and a great barbecue area. The garden is lovely and has lots of plants and trees (There is even a lemon tree and herbs you can use when you barbecue). The owners were super kind and helpful; and provided us with tons of good tips for things to do and see.
You do need a car though, as there are lots of things to see in the area that can not be reached by foot, and the public transport leaves quite a bit to be desired.
Wir haben eine wunderbare Spätsommerwoche in Francesco‘s Villa Paola verbracht. Großes Grundstück mit perfekt gepflegtem Garten, ein sehr geräumiges Haus mit geschmackvoller Austattung und top-moderner Küche, wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt. Bei der Lage sollte man allerdings wissen, dass Strände, Läden und Restaurants alle nicht in fußläufiger Entfernung liegen.

We really liked this place very much and can recommed it fully. Very nice villa in a quitly green neighborhood. The house corresponds to the shown pictures. Living room, bath room, 2 bedrooms with double beds and a kitchen equipped with dishwasher, coffee maker and all necessary dishes and cutlery. Bed linen and towels are provided. Around the villa there is a terrace and a very nice garden with olive tree and flowers. Parking space for car inside the property. Bakery and small supermarket in near distance. Sandy beaches at Lido Fontane Bianche can be reached by car within 5 minutes. Perfect place also for excursions on the south east coast of Sicily (e.g. Etna, Syrakus, Noto, Ragusa).
The host Francesco and his family are very nice and helpful. Quick answers on our questions.
The residence is set in a large garden, independent, with private entrance. Villa Paola is composed of a luminous conditioned lounge with sofa bed, two double bedrooms with ceiling fan overlooking the lush garden. The house is equipped with a modern kitchen and a spacious bathroom with shower. The villa is surrounded by a terrace-patio, equipped with all the amenities to enjoy moments of relaxation or enjoy barbecues thanks to a large barbecue. On the lawn, including hibiscus, palm and olive trees, are comfortable loungers. At 300 m from the villa there is a magnificent cliff with private deck. Here you can snorkel or swim in the crystal clear waters. 1 km away is the beautiful beach of Fontane Bianche, with bathing establishments. The house is the ideal location for exploring the nearby sights of Siracusa, Noto, Modica, Catania, Etna, Taormina or know the magnificent beaches of Noto Marina, Vendicari nature reserve.
