We just got back from a week during the October half term. The villa was just the right size for us - two adults and one child. The kitchen was clean and well equipped. The pool was a bit too cold for us to use at this time of year, but the garden is lovely and a nice spot to relax in, plenty of shade if that's what you like and some sunny spots too.
You definitely need a car as the property is remote and there isn't anything within walking distance really. Very well connected by road though and we explored lots! Some great archealogical sites nearby, towns to visit and some lovely beaches too. We had a great holiday!
Lovely cottage, super pool and great owners
Amazing holiday. We arrived later than expected (and at the wrong meeting point!) but Stephanie (the cottage manager) wasn’t phased at all and walked us through everything with some great tips for local restaurants. The owners had made an extremely tasty bowl of pasta salad for us to eat on arrival (with a bottle of wine) which was very much appreciated. The pool is plenty big enough for a family of 4 and parking is easy and secure - you do need a car though. All in all a superb holiday and Stephanie responded straight back if we had any questions. Would recommend this if you want somewhere peaceful with a pool, as it is well equipped and well maintained.
Ideal for family
Lovely property, clean and well equipped
Excellent, clean, comfortable, ideal pool, clear directions and helpful advice from Stephanie. Good
The flat was ideal for us as 2 people. Airy and light kitchen and sitting room, very clean and good WiFi. Pool was great, area private and quiet. Stephanie was very helpful and thoughtful with excellent suggestions. Kitchen would benefit from more equipment (tea towels etc). But this was minor. Good location but definitely need transport.
Thank you for your comment. Hope to see you again another year!
a little bit of heaven
We (couple in our 50ies) stayed 12 days in May 2017 here in this perfect vacation home. The pictures show the house and the pool area exactly as we found them.
The welcome was perfect: a delicious pasta dish and a bottle of wine were waiting for us.
Stephanie, who showed us the place and with whom we had excellent communication before, gave us lots and lots of tips for restaurants, ice cream parlor, cafés, shopping, museums, things to do. That was a real treasure, it made us feel less vulnerable as tourists having recommendations from a local.
She helped us find the perfect restaurant (Retro Scena in Siracusa) to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
We would love to be able to come back to this little bit of heaven!
Beautiful holiday villa
Just spent a lovely week in this beautiful villa. The owners spoilt us with a welcome dinner and bottle of wine which was waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived. The villa was very clean with good amenities. The garden and pool area were amazing, completely secluded, we used it all the time as the weather was very kind to us. As for the villa's location it was about a 15 minute drive to Ortigia which was stunning and the climb down the gorge to swim in the lakes at the bottom is a must! There is a nice restaurant "Dafne" which was about a 5 minutes drive away if you don't want to go into Ortigia. The Vila I thought was extremely good value for money and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to visit Sicily.
The closest sandy beach is 8 mn' drive! It is the beach of Arenella, you have also other beaches 15 min' driving distance (Ognina, Fontane Bianche).
The use of a car is essential.
