Fabulous villa perfect for a family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed an unforgettable two weeks in Villa Lucia, which is probably one of the nicest places we have ever rented. It was incredibly spacious, impeccably clean, well presented, and Giovanni seemed to have thought of everything. The kitchen was well equipped with cooking equipment and even a good supply of useful basics like oil, salt and herbs; there was washing up liquid, washing powder for the washing machine, and soap in the bathrooms. When we arrived, there were water and soft drinks in the fridge and Giovanni insisted on preparing us lunch (which was very welcome after a long journey). The outside space was enormous - a beautifully presented front garden with herbs, grapes, and figs which we were encouraged to help ourselves to, a front veranda with comfortable chairs, an outdoor sofa area, and enormous table and barbecue area. The kids loved being given the special task of feeding the goldfish in the small pond every day, and also putting food down for a cat.

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel at home, and the owner could not do enough for us - he gave us loads of advice about the best beaches and restaurants, gave us more presents of food and ice cream, gave the children a football to take to the beach, and told us amazing stories. He was always on hand if we needed him, but never intrusive.

The location of the villa is in a very quiet area, only a short walk from the beach and an excellent bar for take-away food for lunch, although it was so hot that we ended up driving most of the time. The beach in Fontane bianche was very crowded in August, but we always found enough space for our umbrella. The sea was beautiful - very warm and safe for kids. We also enjoyed exploring up and down the coast, and it was very easy to do day trips to beautiful cities like Noto, Modica, Ragusa, and Ortigia.

We would definitely recommend Villa Lucia.

Spacious home with beautiful garden

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by our host Giovanni at the bus station in Syracusa and driven directly to the villa. After being shown the place we enjoyed some local delicacies which Giovanni had provided for us.

As far as the house goes the description and the photos match the reality - a spacious, clean and well-kept home with an exotic garden and lovely terraces where you can eat and hang out. There is a small fish pond with Goldfish which the kids were entrusted to feed twice a day. When we did our own cooking we used fresh herbs and veggies from the garden.

Inside the house there's everything you need including towels and bed-linen - speaking of bed-linen it's also worth mentioning that the beds are good (not always the case when you travel). Being primarily constructed from stone the house has a pleasant temperature even in very hot conditions - we actually only used the air-con at night when we had 40+ degrees outside.

The location of the house is good. The surrounding area is very quiet and the sandy beach is only a 10 minute walk away. Also you have a very nice bakery nearby as well as a small supermarket and a few bars.

Giovanni is a kind and intelligent man but also a formidable host - hospitable and helpful. He took us all out for ice-cream and prepared a sumptuous traditional Italian meal which we enjoyed with some cool Sicilian white wine. When we needed medical attention he drove us to the doctor, when we needed to rent a car he negotiated the deal on our behalf. He was always there for us without being intrusive in any way.

We had a great holiday in Fontane Bianche and thoroughly recommend this place.

Ottima

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati accolti a braccia aperte da Giovanni, il proprietario, persona estremamente interessante, ex pilota della marina e grande amante di reperti archeologici.

Siamo una famiglia con 3 bambini ed è stato piacevole soggiornare, anche se solo per 3 giorni, potendo condividere e dialogare con Lui.

TOP!

Detto questa, la casa presenta tutti i confort necessari, aria condizionata, barbecue, grande e ben curato giardino, un piccolo stagno con 28 pesci rossi, patio, vicinanza alla spiaggia e ai siti da visitare.

Ma quanto è bella la Sicilia !!!!

Coccolati..

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati ospiti di Villa Lucia e di Giovanni, il proprietario, 2 settimane ad agosto.

La villa è veramente un "bijoux", comoda, spaziosa, attrezzata e con uno splendido giardino molto curato.

Noi eravamo in 4, 2 adulti e 2 bambini (di 7 e 2 anni) avendo a disposizione: un ampio salone, due camere da letto, cucina abitabile, due bagni entrambi con doccia e addirittura un locale lavanderia. Avevamo a disposizione una linea wifi, 3 televisori, un barbecue con pietra ollare, portico esterno con sdraio e altro portico sul lato con tavolo per le nostre cenette e comodo divano. Personalmente mi sono sentita quasi a casa mia, merito sopratutto del sig. Giovanni che con la sua disponibilità, educazione ed il giusto grado di riservatezza ci ha letteralmente coccolati come fossimo dei suoi parenti...riuscendo anche ad interessare dei bimbi piccoli coi suoi racconti, coinvolgendoli nel dare da mangiare ai pesciolini che si trovano nel piccolo stagno della veranda.

Ci ha fatto trovare nell'abitazione una serie di dotazioni che in nessun'altra casa in affitto avremmo mai potuto trovare, a partire dalla spesa "di sopravvivenza"nel frigorifero, detergenti, sapone, detersivi, lenzuola, asciugamani persino zampironi per le zanzare...insomma un servizio praticamente "all inclusive" compreso gelato e degustazione di ravioli di ricotta con sugo ai funghi preparato accuratamente da lui.

Per quanto riguarda la zona, l'ubicazione della villa è adatta per alternare, come abbiamo fatto noi viaggiando in famiglia, giornate di relax all'antistante bellissima spiaggia di Fontane Bianche (dove andavamo a piedi) con gite fuori porta a Noto, Ortigia (bellissima di sera), Modica, Pozzallo oppure nella favolosa spiaggia di San Lorenzo e oasi di Vendicari.

Consiglierei assolutamente ad altri questa vacanza...

Un ottimo soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo alloggiato in questa casa in 4 (2 adulti e 2 bambini di 3 e 5 anni) per 2 settimane e siamo stati benissimo!!!

L’appartamento è accogliente, spazioso e ben accessoriato, ma quello che di cui abbiamo usufruito maggiormente sono stati gli spazi esterni. Il giardino è molto ben curato e dotato di zona “salottino” per rilassarsi e di un grande tavolo sul quale abbiamo fatto colazione, pranzo e cena. Accanto al tavolo c’è anche un barbecue (pietra ollare) attrezzato e piante aromatiche (basilico, rosmarino, menta, alloro) alle quali il sig. Giovanni ci ha dato libero accesso. Abbiamo anche avuto la fortuna di trovare sul fico in giardino fichi maturi che abbiamo potuto raccogliere!

In pochi minuti a piedi si arriva alla spiaggia di Fontane Bianche. Prendendo la macchina invece si raggiungono in poco tempo Ortigia, Noto ed Avola oltre che altre bellissime spiagge (San Lorenzo, quelle della riserva di Vendicari, Isola delle correnti).

Speriamo di tornare a Villa Lucia, sia per la ricchezza della zona che merita almeno una seconda visita, sia per l’accoglienza ricevuta dal signor Giovanni che, con disponibilità e discrezione, ci ha dato ottimi consigli e ci ha “viziati” (Jacopo non esce mai di casa senza il suo pallone dell’Italia…; noi abbiamo copiato la ricetta della pasta con cavolfiori e pancetta…).

Ottima sistemazione

  • 5 of 5

La casa è spaziosa e curata nei dettagli con uno spazio esterno idoneo a trascorrere serate tranquille con amici o bambini. In pochi minuti si arriva alla spiaggia di fontane bianche. Ottima come posizione per visitare ortigia, noto, la riserva di vendicari, fino ad arrivare a marzamemi. Il propietario che vive sopra è una persona cordiale, disponibile e riservata.
