Superbe maison

  • 5 of 5

Une très belle maison (enfin un ancien atelier rénové en maison confortable) pour 18 personnes. A 2 minutes à pied du très beau centre du village pittoresque de Marzamemi. La propriétaire Madame Dagnino est billingue et très arrangeante et la maison est très bien équipée et nous y avons passé une semaine parfaite.

A fun and enjoyable time staying in The Store hous

  • 4 of 5

We are an extended family of 13 and this property suited us very well, with beautiful views over the harbour of Marzamemi. The owner was very helpful and flexible throughout our booking and stay in her house. Our holiday took place during one of the annual celebration weeks and the atmosphere created in the restaurants and throughout the village in the evenings was vibrant and enjoyed by the whole family. The property was clean and local support was very helpful.

first holidayin sicily

  • 4 of 5

we arrived very late in the evening and a very nice lady was waiting for us. The house was like is was described although with a child of 2,5 all the stairs were very tricky.The beach is nearby but not in front of the house.To get provisions you need a car to get to the next village.

Marzamemi is very touristic so you find restaurants all over the place.We would like to recommend the installation of a microwave in the kitchen.

Owner's Response: Dear Sir, I am sorry you for the stairs, but the photos of the house show very clearly that there are two stairs. Anyway I must say that I always have had families with small children and they never complained, As regards the beach, In the description of the house I say that there is one where you can swimm, in front of the house, on the right, 100 metres far ( just after the boats), even if the bigger beach is then 5 minutes walk. Two little shops for urgent provisions are nearby but, when clients ask me before, I always explain that for big supermarkets you have to go to Pachino, 2 kilometres far. I will put it more clearly in the text but that is why it is written that car is necessary. Thank you for your suggestion about the microwave, we will put one as soon as possible.

"La casa è originale e in grado di ospitare molte persone. Viste le dimensioni non è facile probabilmente effettuare una pulizia di fondo, un consiglio lo vorremmo dare: rinfrescare le coperte e i copriletto. Per il resto tutto ottimo."

  • 5 of 5

"Nous avons séjourné à 2 familles pendant une semaine dans cette maison bourrée de charme. Beaucoup d''espace, maison située dans un village ravissant ! Les enfants ont adoré (ils ont même fait un film intitulé : The House). Nous avons pu ainsi découvrir la Sicile Baroque (Noto, Scicli, Ragusa etc) ... et bien entendu l''Etna. Pleins de chose à faire ! Une semaine de Soleil à la Toussaint ! Ca fait du bien. Merci à Dognatella et son mari pour leur accueil chaleureux malgré l''heure tardive. Maison à conseiller (une petite remarque : un peu sombre)"

Car: necessary

You can fly to Catania and from there you can take a bus to Pachino and from Pachino a bus to Marzamemi. If you come by car from catania you take the speedway to Siracusa- Noto- Pachino - Marzamemi. You can reach also Catania by Boat from Naples ( TTT Lines )or you can take the ship from Genova to Palermo ( Grimaldi Lines) and then drive 3,5 hours to Marzamemi.

Cafès and restaurants nearby and a diving center next to the house. Boat hire.

The medium temperature in Sicily is in November as in April 14-20 degres.In december as in februar 9-16, in march 10-17, in may 14-24,in june 18-28, in july 21-31- in september 20-30, in october 16-25.

In Marzamemi there is normally one degree more.

In Siracusa ( 40 minutes drive) from 9 to 22 june 2014, in the greek theatre, will take place the Classic Representations. This year they will represent “Agamennone” and Coefore-Eumenidi” by Eschilo and “Le Vespe” by Aristofane ( see web site of INDA )

In Noto,between 16 and 18 May 2014, will take place the famous "infiorata". Infiorata is an Italian tradition that sees the streets paved with flowers. The Sicilian city of Noto holds one of the most stunning Infiorata. On Friday, artists begin preparing the street with soil and begin preparing their floral masterpieces. Individual artists display their talents on side streets and the public is invited to browse the "street gallery" on Saturday and Sunday. On Monday the children of the town are allowed to rampage through the flowers, destroying everything they can stomp beneath their little feet. It is a symbolic display of youth and renewal that is worth staying around an extra day to witness.

Pachino, the nearest town, 2 km. far, is famous for the "pomodorino" (little tomato" and for the "bottarga" ( egg of tuna ) and also for the wine, especially "Nero d'Avola" that is sold not far from the house at 1,50 euro per liter!
