About the property

Very quiet, 3 bed., 2 bathrooms, wonderful views, just 10 min. to the beach

The 200 m² house has been restored recently and comfortable. It is set in an approximately 5 000 m² large land with meadows and pastures, about 330 m above sea level.

It is beautifully decorated and has a kitchen, dining room, living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a superstructure with double bed and two covered porches, one with spectacular views to Siracusa's entire environment and its coasts.

From here you can even see Mount Etna. You can enjoy fantastic sunrises and sunsets.

The accommodation is suitable for six people, extra bed available for a small surcharge.

There is also a barbecue available for our guests.

In summer you need no air conditioning due to the high altitude and the thick walls. For the colder months the house is equipped with a heating system.

You can do a lot and relax at the same time.

Un lieu de vacance idyllique.

  • 5 of 5

Lorsque nous sommes arrivé, Giorgio et son épouse avaient déjà tout préparé. C'est la première fois qu'on m'offre des pâtisseries traditionnelles, du vin, que des fruits et légumes frais ainsi que de quoi préparer les premiers repas sont présents dans les placards. Tout était très propre et bien équipé. Pelouse fraîche et lieux ombragés.

La maison est situé dans un endroit isolé, au calme avec une vue splendide sur la baie de Syracuse (15 min de Cassibile où on retrouve quelques commerces utiles et un excellent glacier/patissier et 25 min de Syracuse).

Notre hôte était présent chaque jour pour s'occuper de la propriété en veillant sur nous mais en évitant de gêner notre intimité de vacanciers. Il nous a demandé chaque jours si nous avions besoin de quelque chose et veillait à répondre immédiatement à nos besoin.

Il faisait extrêmement chaud mais nous avons pu nous rafraichir aisément. Il manque peut être juste un ventilateur dans une des chambres.

Il n'y a pas de piscine mais c'est prévu pour l'année prochaine. Avec cet équipement, l'endroit deviendra vraiment totalement paradisiaque.

Je recommande chaudement ce lieu de vacances.

Faites confiance à 200% à Giorgio.

Stressless pur! Ideale Erholung!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Ehepaare 60+) waren begeistert! Die tolle Lage in der "Wildnis", der fantastische Blick zur Küste und zum Ätna, Die traumhaften Sonnenauf- und -untergänge, diese Ruhe und Natur pur! Für uns ein wunderbarer Ort zum Ausspannen und Ausgangspunkt für herrliche Ausflüge nach Syrakus, zum Ätna (als Jeep-Tourmit "Go-Etna-Tours" zu empfehlen), nach Taormina, Ragusa, Noto oder ins Landesinnere nach Palazzolo Acreide und Chiaramonte Gulfi sowie natütlich zum Cava Grabde del Cassibile!!!

Die 8 km (ca. 12 Min.) lange An- und Abfahrt von unserer tollen Unterkunft nach Cassibile (Autostrada E45) war aufgrund der schmalen Straße und der Serpentinenstrecke immer abenteuerlich und spaßig. Besonders toll war die Betreung durch den sehr gut deutsch sprechenden Herrn Arcuri, der immer bei Fragen telef. erreichbar war und natürlich unsere liebevollen Hausverwalter GEORGIO und LUCIA (Eltern des Besitzers und wohnhaft in Cassibile). Diese sprechen leider nur italienisch (trotzdem klappte die Verständigugn mit Händen und Füßen hervorragend), aber trotzdem war die Betreuung und die ganz besondere Gastfreundschaft dieser beiden einmalig! Wir wurden wie Familienangehörige aufgenommen und bereits am Ankunftstag mit kostenlos bereitgestellten Getränken, Brot, Gemüse, Obst und Süßigkeiten versorgt. Sie haben uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen abgelesen und auch erfüllt! Sizilianische Gastfreundschaft - einfach großartig! Mille Grazie Georgio & Lucia!

Wir empfehlen die "Villa della Cava" (für bis 8 Personen) sehr gern weiter und würden auch gern wiederkommen (in den nächsten Jahren ist dort noch ein Pool geplant!).

Wer viel Ruhe möchte in einer wundrvollen Natur, kann hier nichts falsch machen!!!

A wonderful, peaceful place to stay! Un paradiso!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso due magnifiche settimane nella villa!

La posizione è ideale per visitare tutte le più belle spiagge e le meravigliose città della Sicilia Sud-orientale. La casa è una vera oasi di pace e di tranquillità, freschissima anche quando fuori ci sono 38 gradi.

Albe e tramonti indimenticabili, ed un panorama letteralmente da mozzare il fiato. Ortigia, Fontane Bianche, l' Etna, e 180 gradi di vista sul mare. La casa è grande, comodissima (abbiamo soggiornato per due settimane, due famiglie per un totale di sette persone) impeccabilmente pulita e dotata di tutti gli accessori possibili ed immaginabili. Ci sono ben due verande in cui mangiare, perfettamente attrezzate, tutto è curato ed organizzato in modo tale che ci si sente davvero benvenuti, ci si sente a casa! Perfino i tovaglioli di carta che si intonano alla tovaglia...Letti comodissimi, lenzuola ed asciugamani freschissimi e profumati, tappeti puliti, insomma, la casa vacanze migliore che mi sia mai capitata. I proprietari, Giorgio e Lucia, sono assolutamente fantastici: gentilissimi, attenti, disponibili pur rimanendo sempre assolutamente discreti. hanno mille attenzioni, e ci hanno perfino fatto trovare un pò di provviste per la cena e per la colazione, visto che siamo arrivati di sera.

Ci torneremo senz' altro. Un grazie di cuore a Giorgio e Lucia per averci ospitati senza farci sentire ospiti!

I can only recommend this fantastic house. Perfectly equipped, always cool also when it' s 38 degrees outside, extremely well kept and clean, in which you feel at home! The location is perfect to visit this wonderful part of Sicily, with its incredible towns and beaches.

The house is in a very quite environment, with a breathtaking view over the sea, Ortigia and the mount Etna. Stunning sunrises and sunsets. The owners, Giorgio and Lucia are simply perfect. Kind, helpful, attentive to any details while remaining absolutely discreet.

Thank you very much for having had us in your beautiful villa!

Wunderschön!

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa Natura ist ein wunderschön hergerichtetes und sehr großzügiges Haus, das ich sehr gern weiter empfehlen möchte. Ein idealer Ort, zum "Beine baumeln lassen". Auch und gerade mit Kindern, die im großen Garten und in der näheren Umgebung sehr viele Möglichkeiten haben, zu spielen und sich in der Natur zu beschäftigen. Wenn man gern in der Natur ist und die Landschaft (und den Blick auf den Ätna) genießt, ist das Haus ein fantastischer Urlaubsort.

Die Vermieter waren wahnsinnig freundlich und zuvorkommend. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet (w-lan funktioniert einwandfrei ;-)) und daher hatten wir keinerlei Bedarfe, mit ihnen während unseres Aufenthalts in Kontakt zu treten. Aber die Betreuung bei de An- und Abreise waren sehr herzlich und nett.

Car: recommended

The immediate surroundings are ideal for long walks or hikes in untouched nature without noise and traffic. In this picturesque landscape, there are countless ways with typical dry-stone walls, surrounded by idyllic pastures and orchards.

It is close to the Cava Grande (Canyon), a protected natural area with waterfalls and breathtaking scenery. Recommended places are Pantalica, Anapo valley, Vendicari, Mount Etna, Gole dell' Alcantara etc.

The next town Cassibile (part of Siracusa) is only 5 minutes from the house. Here are supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacy, motorway entrance / exit, etc.

The nearest sandy beach is in Fontane Bianche (10 min.).

Syracuse (UNESCO World Heritage) is about 15 minutes away.

Other cities that should be visited are Noto, Modica, Ragusa, Scicli, Palazzolo Acreide, Catania, Taormina.
