Villa Penelope is situaded just a few miles from Capo Passero,whose lighthouse signals Italy’s most meridional point,considerably further south than Tunis. The coast is almost entirely given over to long sandy beaches,the very sameones landed on by British and Canadian forces during Operation Huskey in the 2nd World War. Just to the West is the porto of Pozzallo,from were,in just 90 mins hydrofoil,it is possible to get to Malta. To the North is the splendid Baroque town of Noto, Syracuse,once the mightiest city in Magna Grecia and Vendicari Nature Reserve, home to beautiful unspoilt beaches, migrating flamingoes and nesting turtles. Less than hour’s drive to the other splendid towns of “Val di Noto” UNESCO heritage site, Modica and Scicli,and, a little futher afield,Ragusa.

It is a wonderful house for living near the sea with the very beautiful garden, convenient BBQ. It was nice to spend the evening on the porch and eat freshly cooked seafood on fire. The beach is a two minutes walk. Warm sea, wild uncrowded beach is all you need for relaxation. Thanks for all help to home owners.
Holidays like at home
We spent three wonderful weeks at Corrado's house. Corrado and his family are very kind, helpful and attentive hosts. We felt as if we were at home - great place to stay with children! Very well equiped kitchen, lot of place to rest, incredible flowered garden.. Few steps to reach the sea, lonely clean sandy beach and if you take the car (Corrado helped me with it), there are a lot of interesting routes to drive just 30-50 km away.
Weather was perfect too: water temperature +26 degrees, air: +25 - 30.
Thanks for your friendly hosting, dear Corrado! My daughter is already dreaming to return back at your palace!)
Everything what was on the photos was exactly the same. Property and garden really clean and well kept. Had a feeling that we came to a friends house. The owners were very helpful. I would definitely recommend this property! Nice and clean beach is just a few minutes away. 15-20 minutes away you can fined a few small towns with supermarkets and nice restaurants. Enjed our stay from A to Z.
