Lovely base for exploring this corner of Sicily
This place is a fantastic base to use for exploring this lovely area. The house has a nice homely feel and is very roomy. The pool and outdoor areas are particularly good with a portico for outdoor dining and a variety of different sitting areas allowing you to get shade or sunshine any time of day. The BBQ area was particularly good being covered and with a full outdoor kitchen facility. The pool was deep and well maintained by our host Andrea. Andrea was a perfect host communicating with us to let us know in advance when he needed to come to the property for pool maintenance or any other tasks. Andrea was exceptionally helpful for anything we needed and had good local knowledge. In terms of the area, the Penny Market is close by and open long hours, it stocks most of what you would need. The house is only about 20 minutes from Syracuse, a city that we really fell in love with. There is a good and very popular restaurant nearby called Villa del Castle, if you want to eat out. All in all this was a super place to stay and made for a very memorable holiday in Sicily
Great villa, plenty of space and brilliant pool
Firstly Andrea, is an excellent host.so discreet and yet very helpful. He didn’t intrude at all and gave us privacy, but at the same time was there if we needed him at all.
This was a brilliant holiday for us. We stayed as two family’s with five children between us, aged 9months to nearly six. Very safe garden for them all to wonder. The pool is great, very deep at one end and not fenced off. So you have to watch the kids....but not really an issue for us as we where all always outside anyway. Brilliant eating spots in different areas of the garden.
Great market to visit in the morning at Siracusa. Loads of fresh food and well worth visiting as only 20mins away. Noto is also a must see and is only 45mins.
We also loved a beach called Eloro. Great for the children, plenty of crabs and fish to see. And was only a five minute walk from the parking.
We drove to see mount etna, which was 1hour 20mins. It is worth the visit and we actually had one overcast day whilst there and so did this trip on that day.
The villa was well equipped and had all that we needed. We all stayed in the main house but there is also a separate annexe sleepei
Thankyou Andrea xxx
A great family holiday
We had a wonderful holiday for our extended family, with age range of not yet two to nearly sixty. It was quiet and secure so that it was perfectly safe for little ones to play, and even had lizards for lizard hunts and fresh pomegranates which we picked from the trees to eat. There were sunny terraces for the sun-worshippers, and shady spots for the tender skinned. Everyone loved it.
The house is a big family home with everything we needed on hand. The bedrooms had plenty of space and big fans to help keep us cool at night. We loved the fact that we had tables to eat outside in the shade in different parts of the garden.
Andrea welcomed us warmly and came to look after the pool (which is huge) regularly, keeping it spotlessly clean. He also came to help, bringing his own scanner and printer when we needed to send urgent work emails half way through the holiday.
There is plenty nearby to visit from sandy, rock or shingle beaches, from prehistoric necropoli to ancient temples or modern gallleries, and of course the UNESCO world heritage sites of Syracusa and Noto. Andrea was a good source of information on sightseeing, and gave us a good tourist map. Local markets (particularly the fish market) as well as supermarkets provided all that we needed for cooking and we found a wide range of restaurants from small local ones to grand international cuisine when we wanted to eat out.
I would warmly recommend this villa to any family wanting a holiday that is relaxing, with opportunities to visit many of the beautiful and interesting places that Sicily can offer.
Stunning house, the owner Andrea helpful and nice
We had a great time with the family in the house. It was more that beautiful, very clean and with great spots to sit together and enjoy our time. many green spots, great refreshing pool. decoration in local and beautiful, kitchen is accomplished with more than we needed. To sum up, this is a dream house!
the owner is amazing, so helpful and available for any need.
We would definitely come back and recommend to friends!!
My family and I just spend two weeks in the house and we are all very happy about the stay.
The services of the owner were impeccable and all went according to plan.
The house is surrounded be lemon and orange plantation which immediately gives you a calm feeling of being far from home and the huge ground of the property gives you a perfect setting for a relaxing holiday with a deep and very clean pool as the focal point.
While the nearest town of Floridia don’t offer much else than a couple of nice spots in the town centre and fine grocery shopping possibilities you will find a range of interesting places nearby with beautiful Syracuse as the closet.
Other points of interest in the area are the ancient graves and villages in the amazing Valle dell’ Anapo, the beaches just south of Syracuse or the old towns of Ragusa, Modica and Noto. And off course the must-sees Mount Etna and Taormina is within the range of a day trip.
Great holiday !
Fantastic villa with an absolutely wonderful garden and pool. We had a great holiday staying there, relaxing, perfect for the children, lots of space. Very well maintained with excellent customer service.
We were 2 families, total 7 - children ranging from 7 to 14. It was ideal for all the ages.
Description from listing very accurate. I would highly recommend this property.
Situated in quiet and sunny position in the surrounding of Floridia, 15 Kms far away from Syracuse. Archaeology and history, art and culture, nature and environment: a land to discover. These cultural and environmental treasures are also recognized by UNESCO: the province of Syracuse has the privilege to count two World Heritage sites: Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto (Noto and Palazzolo Acreide); Syracuse and the Rocky Necropolis of Pantalica (including also Cassaro, Ferla and Sortino).
