What a perfect name to describe this property!!!?.. This home is undoubtedly authentic Sicily, and undeniably charming, as is the property's owner, whom we are quite fond of- Corrado. I spent a most memorable and truly sensational week at this fantastic country farmhouse, with my husband and two young children, 6 and 8. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a rental in breathtaking Sicily. The home was more than we could have dreamed of, as it was filled with artifacts and decor reminiscent of the old Sicilian farmhouse it was originally, yet tastefully and comfortably equipped with all amenities travelers could ask for. It was cool in the evenings and the fans provided were more than enough to keep the rooms comfortable. My family absolutely fell in love with this home, and it's owner, Corrado! Upon arriving, Corrado met us, helped us feel welcome and at home, both within it's tranquil and beautiful grounds, and on the serene island of Sicilia itself! His recommendations, helpfulness,and genuinely warm nature, made LEAVING this wonderful place even more difficult! My children were so excited to see it, to spend the week, and were sad to leave. We felt good about the location of the property, as it was private, quiet, and yet also convenient to get to the autostrada for all of our day trips- Beautiful Taormina, Catania, Acireale, Siracusa , Noto, Avola...and more!!! Of course, as others have already written, the lemon trees, the outdoor features, barbecue, huge farmhouse table, seating, swimming pool and fantastic outdoor shower, were all outstanding features, however, it is really for the wonderful SPIRIT of this property and sincerity of it's owner, that I so highly recommend it. I only hope that I may return to Sicily and that I may stay in this home once again.....

We loved every minute of our time at Villa Neiride. We did a lot of touring in Rome and were happy to have time to relax in Aranella and see the local sites at a more relaxed pace. Villa Neiride was a wonderful sanctuary. We were met by Maria (who lives nearby in Siracusa) and Fabrizio and Michaela, who came from Rome to greet us. The location was stunning - a quiet summertime resort community just outside of Siracusa but easy 20 minute bus ride. Short drive to Noto (we attended the Infiorata festival), and 30 min to Catania, where you can enjoy a number of local villages, wine/honey/olive oil tasting and Mt Etna. Mostly, we enjoyed days at the beach (and yes, we swam!), visits to Siracusa and Ortygia, daily drop-ins at the local Aranella market for fresh bread, cappucino and gelato(!), and the tranquility of the property...even the doves! Picking fresh lemon for our meals was a bonus! The Siracusa Beach resort does a prix-fix menu with cassata - the local sweet made from ricotta cheese (a little too sweet for my tooth). There is not much locally except the beach so this is really more for a retreat from Siracusa/Ortygia but close enough to enjoy. No ATMs or grocery within walking distance (except the market for bread, milk, wine and gelato). Bus stop is near the beach a few blocks. Thank you again also to Maria, who is a gem. Very much recommend Villa Neiride.
