Fantastic property for families

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best properties we have stayed in in all of the years we have been renting through HomeAway. This rustic, traditional farmhouse is spacious and comfortable, full of atmosphere, with air-conditioning in all the bedrooms, a shady garden with hammocks (which our children really enjoyed in particular) and a lovely patio with views of the sea. The house is ten minutes' drive from a lovely beach with easy parking, and there are a number of good restaurants nearby. We would particularly recommend Onda Blu for Sea Food and the Cafe de la Mar for breakfast. Francesca, the owner, was extremely helpful and was kind enough to leave some food and beverages when we arrived.

This was paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were totally surprised by the location - a bit of secluded paradise on the edge of heaven! The place is more than adequate for three families - and would provide the young or the “young-ar-heart” fascinating explorations. The house fits the Sicilian countryside - a tranquil piece of solitude from a busy world. Francesca and Carlo had our home well stocked for the first night (complete with fresh oranges from the trees nearby) and provided directions for additional supplies or recreation. We could walk to our own private beach, explore lanes and orchards or sit on the patio and watch the sun set! We did not want to leave! Our biggest mistake: book for only three nights!

THIS IS PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5

This place is heaven on earth! We are a Swedish family of five and have travelled extensively in Southern Italy and we all agreed that this was one of the best houses of all times. It is a beautifully restored stables, spacious and decorated in an old school Italian way. The garden is huge, with hammock, veranda (which our boys used as a football ground), two outdoor sitting groups, olive and pine trees, as well as lemon, orange and kumquat trees. We picked oranges every morning- lovely! The sea shore is beautiful too and perfect for our kids 8-13 years old, and the water crystal clear. (You have a good sea view from the house)

There are lots of things to discover only a short car ride away like, Siracusa, Noto, Catania and the amazing necropolis di Pantalica. And Etna too, which we didn't have time for this time.

Francesca and Carlo were helpful, generous and kind. Perfects hosts.

Once back in Sweden in was snowing and we can't wait to go back to this gem of a villa.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect house for a stress free holiday - beautiful, comfortable, clean and spacious with air-conditioning, and WI-FI, set in a tranquil, rural location off the beaten track with stunning cliffs and sea-views.

The house is set in large grounds with a spacious terrace, various seating areas for either sun or shade, hammock, outdoor hot shower, (great idea!), and is surrounded by olive trees, almond trees, palms and flowers.

We used the outdoor dining and BBQ area daily and long into the night to enjoy leisurely alfresco meals.

The clear sea, (great for snorkelers!), and secluded rock bays are just a short walk away with amazing views of Ortigia.

A small grocery shop, and pizzerie/restaurants, which also do take-away, are just a short drive away and historic Siracusa and Ortigia just a 15 minute drive, car essential!

Thank you to our hosts Francesca and Carlo who were warm, welcoming and informative. We had a great time! A perfect house for a family holiday!

Amazing place close to Syracusa

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location and accomodation. The house is nice and comfortable, at just 10 minutes by car from Syracusa, in a silent and beautiful place. There is a small beach at 5 minutes walk, away from the crowd.The house is charming, very clean, authentic, and offer a lot of space for a five person family. The garden is greatly laid out, with nice trees and plants, and offer tables to eat outside with some nice seawiews ! Francesca and her husband were very helpful and welcomed us with a lovely food supplies and a nice bottle of wine. We loved everything and really appreciated the place. Syracusa is a wonderful city, with amazing points of view. We strongly recommanded this house for a family stay. Our only regret was to leave this great house :) Thank you for everything, your hospitality, the wine and the great zucchinis. Best Regards.

Großes Haus fußläufig zur Küste

  • 4 of 5

Die Kommunikation vorab mit Francesca war auf englisch problemlos möglich. Der Empfang mit gefülltem Kühlschrank sehr herzlich. Das Haus ist groß und rustikal. Die Küste ist zu Fuß schnell zu erreichen, allerdings war der Strand für unsere Familie mit 3 kleinen Kindern (4,2,0 Jahre) nicht optimal. Die Bucht ist aber landschaftlich wunderschön und für größere Kinder sicher ein Erlebnis!

Syrakus ist sehr schnell zu erreichen und ein tolles Ausflugsziel.
