Lovely villa and great host
Despite some rather uncharacteristic August rain we enjoyed our stay at Arianna's lovely villa. It was clean and spacious enough for two families and its location, with only a few other villas in the immediate vicinity, means it is sufficiently remote to be peaceful, but still within 5 minutes drive of the nearest food shop. Arianna is a charming and very attentive host who answered all our questions, sorted any issues we had and provided lots on information about the best restaurants, beaches etc. The pool is kept very clean and the garden is nice with room for outdoor eating. We would definitely recommend the villa.
Dear Dave, Carmen and the rest of family, you have been lovely guests, kind and appreaciative of my efforts in making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Sorry I could not do something about the weather...but I am working on it! ;)
We had two wonderful weeks at Villa Plemmirio View!
The house is very spacious. There are many rooms. We were two families with six kids in total and we had no issues fitting in. Our kids had a great time in the pool and one or two even learned to swim in it. We spent many wonderful evenings in the pergola enjoying our own home-cooked food. The villa has a very efficient and well-functioning HVAC system (air-conditioning) and as a result we all slept like babies.
Arianna was a very helpful host who gave us a lot of helpful advice and friendly support on a daily basis (such as providing us with additional pots and pans).
When we did not cook at home we took the car to the ancient part of Siracusa; the Ortigia island, which amazed us. We were completely unprepared for the never-ending maze of limestone-cobble-stoned streets that just went on and on. We tried four different restaurants and to our surprise they were all good. That typically does not happen in a touristic places. Our favorite restaurant was La Perla Nera which had a small court-yard located next to the wall against the sea. The sun set here which made it even better.
Our kids love cliff-diving and to our delight the most amazing diving cliffs were located a 10-15 minute stroll from the house. Even our 6-year-old learned to jump from the cliffs. Some of us preferred beaches and luckily there are several coves located nearby (10 minutes by car). If you fancy endless beaches like on Sardinia you have to drive for 30 minutes to Vendicari (Riserva Naturale Oasi Faunistica Vendicari). We had lunch at a wonderful Agriturismo called La Vignazza (phone no: +39-931 592413) right outside San Lorenzo, located next to Vendicari)
Personally, as a wine-aficionado, a highlight was the visit to the winery Enofanusa Cantina Gulino, located less than 10 minutes from the Villa Plemmirio View on Via Daniele Impellizzeri, 29. Cantina Gulino makes wines to the highest international standards. I will order more of the Nero d’Avola wine Drus.
The only improvement suggestion we can think of would be to take a trip to IKEA and buy a “Starting Kit” of additional pots, pans and kitchen utensils (and a dish-washer). As Swedes we really appreciate the fresh vegetables and produce that you can buy on Sicily, so we probably do more cooking at home than the typical visitor.
If I did not make it clear in my review, Villa Plemmirio comes with our most heartfelt recommendations.
Thanks SO much for your kind words, Hugo. Your enthusiastic and useful review goes straight up to the top! Thanks to all of you! You have been lovely guests and your suggestions are very much appreciated. Take care and see you some other time :)
La casa è molto bella, assolutamente pulita e tenuta bene, ed in un'ottima posizione.
La cucina al piano seminterrato è piccolina e non troppo fornita, del resto è comunque una casa vacanza. Il wifi non funzionava; anche la rete dati in casa non funzionava (questo problema non è chiaramente ascrivibile alla proprietaria).
Da segnalare che è vietato gettare la carta igienica all'interno del WC...particolare non proprio piacevole.
Arianna, la proprietaria, si è dimostrata molto molto gentile e disponibile.
Grazie mille della tua recensione!
Relativamente al non gettare la carta igenica direttamente nel water, vorrei precisare che naturalmente ogni bagno è provvisto di un cestino apposito e che rifornisco sempre gli ospiti di sacchetti. E' una buona norma e di uso comune nella zona, trattandosi di ville di campagna con condutture idrauliche non efficienti tanto quanto le case di città.
Credo di essermi dedicata al 200% (come del resto faccio sempre) per rendere il vostro soggiorno confortevole.
Le stoviglie non sono mai abbastanza per gli ospiti... Continuo a comprarne di nuove perchè, come ti spiegavo, continuano a romperle o a rovinarle. Sono i rischi del mestiere! :))) Ma sono sempre stata disponibile a fornire un extra di tutto, anche nel vostro caso.
So che c'è spazio per il miglioramento. Il wifi ha in effetti smesso di funzionare quasi del tutto e ho provveduto a sostituirlo in questi giorni. La villa è grande, con ben 6 climatizzatori, due cucine (a disposizione degli ospiti), 3 bagni e un grande spazio esterno che richiede molto impegno e una costante manutenzione. Posso garantirti che, per quello che offre la struttura, le tariffe dovrebbero essere piu alte, come richiedono altri host della zona con proprietà pari livello. Ma io sono un po' ingenua, faccio questa attività da poco e in qualche caso mi lascio convincere a fare degli sconti ;))
Spero comunque che abbiate apprezzato tutte le bellezze dei dintorni e di Siracusa. Un caro saluto a tutti voi e un grazie a Gauthier e a sua moglie per il bel commento sul mio guestbook. :))
Sehr schönes Haus mit tollem Pool
Wir waren mit 7 Personen, 2 Familien in diesem sehr schönen Haus. Es ist einfach eingerichtet, hat aber alles was man braucht. Besonders schön war der große Aussenpool und der große Garten mit Grillecke. Die nächsten Restaurants und Sandstrände sich ca. 7 Autominuten entfernt. In unmittelbarer Nähe sind Gelegenheiten zum Schnorcheln und Beachclubs, allerdings allesamt Steilküste.
Die Vermieterin war sehr höflich und zuvorkommend.
Dear Mirco, thank you for your kind words, I've really appreciated them. And thank you for having always appreciated my efforts to make your stay pleasant. There is a brand new cane curtain in the pergola and guests are loving it!
Kindest regards to all of you!
We had a nice week at the villa Plemmirio View!
The villa was perfect with a big garden. The children loves the swimming pool. The neighborhood was very beautiful. Arianna was very sweet. She helps us with things to do in the neighborhood and helps translate when we had a car accident. She is very helpful and will do anything for you.
Dear Jolien,Harold and all your beautiful family thanks for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you as guests. You left the house in perfect state and were very considerate. Thank you also for the lovely gift! All my best and maybe you'll come back.
Great family holidays in Sicily
We (3 families with children) stayed at the villa for 10 days.
We liked the calm location and all the facilities inside and outside the villa. Especially swimming pool and grill area.
Convenient location with short drive times to beach and Syracuzy.
The owner - Arianna provided a lot of information for places we wanted to go on daily basis, she took really good care of us.
Villa is very clean and comfortable.
We really enjoyed the stay.
Dear Wojciech, it was a pleasure to have you and your family at my villa. You have been always kind and understanding, I've really appreciated that. I hope to have you some other time as my guests! Thank you for your words. A big hug to your little angels!
La tassa di soggiorno richiesta obbligatoriamente dal comune di Siracusa ammonta a 1 euro e 50 a persona a notte ed è da considerare una spesa extra a carico dell'ospite. The municipality of Syracuse has imposed a mandatory tourist tax which is 1,50 euros per person per night and it's to be considered an extra expense for the guests to pay on site.
