Well equipped apartment with a helpful owner
Property was clean and well appointed and the roof terrace was a good facility.
The second bedroom has 3 single beds and if you are filling the apartment with 5 people it may feel a little crowded if you are staying inside much. For us, as a couple, it was perfect and we spent most of our time at the apartment outside on the terrace anyway.
The dining shade is not exactly as the photo - it seems the frame may have been damaged and instead of the roof-shaped canvas in the photo a simple flat cover is now in place. Still effective though.
The owner, Francesco, was very helpful and pointed out local restaurants and beaches and places to visit while we were there without being too intrusive.
It did feel a little strange to park our car in a separate driveway (within the property) in front of the downstairs apartment but apparently this is normal.
Very secure location but beware - the roads are small so don't rent too big a car!
Local supermarket a kilometer or so away is helpful but there is a big one about 13 km away on the S113 at Avola (Interspar Il Giardino) if you need more choice or a "big shop".
Fabulous stay at Fontane Bianche and the owner, Francesco was so friendly and so helpful!
We spent 8 nights at this property in Fontane Bianche and had a wonderful experience. The apartment was just right for us (family of 5 with 3 teenage daughters). It was within easy reach of the beach etc - 5 minute drive and set in a quiet residential area with a fab sun terrace to either sit out and eat/read or sunbathe. The apartment had 2 reasonable sized bedrooms and fairly well kitted out kitchen with fridge/freezer - good cooker/oven and also iron and ironboard. Francesco was fab - so helpful and informative (he met with us on the first day and really gave us a great overview of the property and the surrounding areas - where to shop/not shop; good restaurants and beaches etc) - and as a result we got our bearings straightaway! The location is good too for trips to Noto; Ragusa and Syracuse. We ate a couple of times at La Capannina da Gino (in Fontane Bianche) and were delighted at the food and it was pretty cheap. We also visited the water park just north of Syracuse (Aretusa Park) - we spent the afternoon there and that was plenty of time (its cheaper just to go for the afternoon - from 2pm to 6pm). Great experience for us and would highly recommend. Thank you Francesco - hopefully we will come back again soon! Jim, Diane and family
James,Diane e famiglia sono stati degli affittuari perfetti in ogni cosa e colgo l'occasione per ringraziarli nella speranza di poterli incontrare ancora una volta,
Grazie e Cordiali Saluti. Francesco
Lovely house with everything you need for a comfortable stay, magnificent large terrace. Caring host who will provide you with all the necessary information to stay. Ideal location for exploring the eastern part of Sicily.
Thank you Elena and her family have come from me. Thank you again for the responsibility and care of the house. I hope to meet again.
Perfect Villa for a large group
The owner provided excellent customer service with much additional information on the surrounding area and places to visit. The property was clean, well maintained and very spacious, if anything the photos on website don't do it justice. A car is a necessity to access the nearest facilities in Fontane Bianche or Cassibile though they are both in easy walking distance. The location is well placed for Syracuse and also for exploring the South East corner of the Island. The villa was split into 3 seperate living accomadtions each with their own kitchen bathroom and living area with good parking and plenty of leisure space in the gardens and patios. Very good value for money.
Renters perfect. A group friendly, cheerful. Thanks again.
"Accommodation excellent, clean, new and quiet with all facilities that could be asked for( but sadly no kettle or teapot for the English). Terrace good for eating out and sunbathing with a cool breeze.Francesco and his wife very friendly and helpful without being intrusive.
Fontane Biancho very good location with fine beach and easy route into Siracusa and motorway connection to Catania and also Palermo which is only a 4 hour drive.
Sicily is a beautiful island and well worth a visit. We had a thoroughly enjoyable holiday."
The accommodation was exa...
The accommodation was exactly as described. Francesco and his wife met us and showed us round the property when we arrived, explained everything, provided us with lots of helpful information, then left us to enjoy our holiday. There was absolutely no interferance and it was just like a home from home.
Lovely roof terrace on which we enjoyed many an evening meal, kitchem well-equipped and very comfortable bedrooms with a/c. Everything at the property was very clean. Fontane Bianche is a delightful area, quiet, lovely colourful plants all around, a superb local beach and very accessible to Siracusa and all surrounding places of interest.
I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending this property.
