Lovely house, convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 had a great time here. It really is as lovely as it looks in the pictures. There are 3 big double-bedrooms with a fourth accessible from the third bedroom - to be borne in mind if going in a bigger group.

The pool is great and big, overlooking the sea and the old fort in Syracuse. The house is on a quiet street and there's a big parking area behind the security gates if you have more than one car. You're only 10 minutes away from Syracuse and from some beautiful, white-sand beaches. Overall, this is a great base to relax and explore the south of the island.

A lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at Villa Maddalena. It's a beautiful house, big, comfortable, clean and perfect for every age.

Every one enjoyed the swimming pool, especially the children.

Even its location is perfect: it's in front of the beach and very close to the city.

The Villa has everything we needed: there's a bbq outside of the house, the swimming pool is big and clean, there's the wi-fi connection and a veranda with a breathtaking view...we cold have spent the all twenty days of the holiday without going out.

We definitly loved this Villa and also Siracusa.

Thank you for the lovely holiday!

Plemmirio Nature Reserve

A paradisiac oasi deeply desired by the citizen of Siracusa

Vegetation and flora

The flora, typical of a subtropical arid climate, is characterized by a vegetation alofilo, able to withstand salt and sea spray as in the case of 'arbusto salicornia glauca', and the garrigue in dwarf palm that is extended for almost a mile square, and only in very few other areas of the Mediterranean you can see such a concentration of them.


The fauna is rich in sponges, cnidarians, marine worms, crustaceans, mollusks, and fish echidormi. Among the sponges in Plemmirio we remember the encrusting sponge, sponge red, the Petrosia ficiformis and sponge Carnaccia. There are many crustaceans: lobster, shrimp, mechanical, lobster, Bernard the Hermit, and the magnosella magnosa. Among echinoderms, it might be mentioned the red sea star, the star snake, martasteria and sea cucumber.


The perfect city for who wants to live again the history of Sicily.

Syracuse has 123,248 inhabitants and is the capital of the province. Called by Cicero the largest and most beautiful of all the Greek cities, the home of Archimedes was included in 2005 in the World Heritage List assiemme the Necropolis of Pantalica. The name derives from the term Syracuse Syraka (plenty of water), for the presence of rich sources. Founded by the Greeks in 734 BC became in a few years the Pentapolis as the original core - the Isle of Ortigia - joined four other districts: Akradina, Tyche, Neapolis and Epipoli.

Crossroads of civilizations, Syracuse evidenced by the succession of peoples who have left their mark by making significant Greek city a metaphor for the passage of the centuries. The barbarian invasions by the Romans, the Byzantines and then the Arabs, Normans, Swabians, the Angevins, the Aragonese and the Spanish, and then, finally, to the Bourbon monarchs, more than a thousand years of domination is beautifully photographed, with an admixture magic of Baroque buildings, museums, squares and streets of a city that resonates with history and tradition.

Typical products

A tradition that has been handed down in the name of modernity, with the help of techniques and sophisticated machinery, the typical crops of the identity of Syracuse.

Among the most appreciated citrus and vegetable crops, as well as products greenhouses, and wine production. The Lemon of Syracuse also called 'femminello', is a variety of citrus cultivated in a large area of ??the district. The production limonicola provincial covers a quarter of the national and has been awarded the IGP.

Syracuse boasts a DOC wine: Moscato, a white reflections ambracei that occurs only in the municipal area of ??the city from Moscato Bianco grapes underwent a light drying.


In Syracuse you can taste many specialties prepared with ingredients from the area. As main courses you can choose from pasta recipes with fresh tuna or other species of fish, or macaroni flavored with pine nuts, walnuts, olives or toasted breadcrumbs in a pan. The sauce for pasta is strictly based on the tasty tomatoes from Pachino (IGP). Dish of Syracuse are the breasts While tuna from ZA Cicca, a dish made with tuna, cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, eggs and cloves. Other dishes are tuna sausage tuna and tuna stew with onions and peppers.


Speaking of crafts, memory takes us back to ancient crafts and the materials used, which by their specificity, have characterized the simple life of the time, and some we have, again, memory, as passed down from generation to generation.

The most typical, it is worth mentioning, craftsmen employing products of the soil, such as clay, which was used to produce pans, dishes, tableware, containers for food, tiles for the roofs and more.

Even today, nell'altopiano ibleo, it is possible to see many examples of transformation of clay, painted with the traditional technique of working with the lathe foot, with which the modeled. In fact, after removing the clay from the quarries of Lentini and Siracusa, this was the first kneaded and crushed, for hours, barefoot and then be shaped, in different forms, creating, containers for storing oil, wine, food salted or in oil, water jugs, oil lamps and whatever was needed.

The timber was also used for the production of cutlery and kitchen utensils, barrels for wine, furniture and furnishings for the home, and manual or animal drawn carts.
