About Nina Schuttert / Giulia Tiriticco / Kirsten Eijkelenboom / Giulia Lattanzio
We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Beautiful villa for a family
We were very satisfied with this large and well equipped villa. We were joined by our daughter and her husband, along with our 2 grandkids, and everyone felt right at home. There was plenty of space for everyone, including play areas for the kids. We had plenty of fun roaming the yard and gardens and going down to the rock beach. However, we did find it a little awkward getting to the nearby sandy beach as the narrow roads made it too difficult to take young kids - solved with a 5 minute drive. Vincenza our hostess was marvellous and welcoming, and had stocked many staples for our visit. She was extremely helpful! A very enjoyable holiday.
The hosts were so attentive and the house is really amazing! I loved having lunch or dinner in the terrace, you cannot beat the views. Also the house was super clean (and my standards in that front are vey high!). I really felt like home. We will come back!
This was one of the most beautiful houses we have ever rented - the view from the terrace was glorious and we (two couples) spent most mornings and evenings sitting out looking at the sea. The house is very comfortable and not too cluttered, as many rentals are, with beautiful artworks and artifacts, many by Lidia. Vincenza and Lidia met us at the house having stocked it with two kinds of olives, a huge fruit basket, bread, butter, milk, wine, olive oil, coffee... It was hard to tear ourselves away for sightseeing. We enjoyed pizza at Pizzaria Blume in Cassibile, as well as peppers, meat, cheese and roasted chicken legs with onions and potatoes that we bought at the nearby small grocery store. Laundry was easy since the machine had a 30 minute cycle, unlike some European ones that take hours.
The only minor drawback was the somewhat difficult trek to the water and, for fastidious Americans, having to put toilet paper in metal containers instead of flushing it.
Beautiful view from a spacious terrace and a warm inviting home!
This property is a gem! The view is exactly as advertised and the house is very well appointed, especially the kitchen. We loved the breakfast dining area as well. The owners were terrific to work with. Highly recommend!
The villa was spacious, the host was super friendly, the kitchen was fully stocked (and I mean FULLY), and the view was spectacular. Normally, I try hard to find at least one negative about my experience so readers know that my review is from a real person who had a real experience; however, I really can't find one. Okay, I think I have one negative...I stayed only one week when I should have reserved the villa for at least two! Thank you. //john
Excellent ;Welcoming and helpful hosts. The villa is spacious and well equipped.
Fontane Bianche is about 50 minutes from Catania airport and 15 minutes from Syracuse by car. There are food shops and several restaurants in the area. Its proximity to the stunning baroque towns of Syracuse, Noto and Palazzolo Acreide also make it an excellent base for a cultural exploration of this UNESCO World Heritage area.
The location is ideal for exploring Sicily's southern coast:
- 15 km of the beautiful town of Syracuse
- 10 km from Noto, a town rebuild in baroque architecture after the earthquake of 1693.
- 25 km from the harbour of Marzamemi, a picturesque fishing village with a nice boulevard, good restaurants and shops with local products;
Other Activities: Escursion to Mount Etna, 100 km away
