Overview

Syracuse Villa Rental Photos and Description

Self-catering rental with several facilities and private beach access

Fantastic environmental surroundings ideal for very relaxing holidays. In the heart of the most fascinating Sicilian “waterfront” areas the apartment is strategically located on the breathtaking coast between Catania and Siracusa. This is a wonderful location to admire the beauties of the Sicilian landscapes and archaeological sites,to bath in the warm waters of the Mediterranean sea while enjoying the quietness of a private bay.

From Costa Saracena, the most famous places can be easily and quickly reached: Catania, Noto, Siracusa, Mount Etna, Taormina, Ragusa, Piazza Armerina, Marzamemi…, just to cite some of them. Culinary breaks are a “must” in those areas. In fact the regional Sicilian culinary tradition is here superlatively represented. From the well-known Arancini, to the famous 'Pasta con la Norma' as well as the worldwide known 'Cannoli alla Siciliana'.

Nonna Maria, the landlady, with her “volcanic” personality will be your “accuileur” and 'mentor'.

A quiet hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We booked Villa Lazy Corner as we were looking for somewhere quiet and were hoping for some later Autumn sun.

The villa is on a large private estate yet close to the main Catania/syracuse auto route. There is a bar nearby but this was closed and I'm assuming this is because we were now off season. There is a garage close by which sells some food but we did all of our shopping in the large super market in Catania as we seemed to drive past it every couple of days.

The photos on the website are an accurate reflection. The lounge is lovely with a double aspect and views across the bay. There is also a roof area great for something reached by a quite steep ladder.

The double bedroom is of a good size with a decent size wardrobe and there is a smaller room with two singles.

Both the bathroom and kitchen are small and could do with some modernisation. The gas oven is old and the oven has no temperature setting its on high or low! That said we cooked quite happily on it as there was just the two of us.

The shower in the bathroom has good water pressure but the shower cubicle is small and would be better if it had solid walls and not just a curtain but these are minor points.

All the rooms have full mosquito screens and most have air conditioning. We still used the mosquitos smoke repellants as it is inevitable that with doors open some will get in.

Plus points - spacious lounge and bedroom, great views, roof area

Minus - a little remote, some modernisation needed

A 5 ***** Siclian experience!

  • 5 of 5

In our first day of staying in Maria&Nando's stylish Mediterranean style villa, Nando asked me why did we choose their house?!

I answered him that their guests always gave them 5***** rating!

He smiled and told me that's because they always pay a lot of attention to details; that they always try to make their guests feeling like coming to their home and they should not miss anything!

Yes, it's true! Maria&Nando have a special talent to make you feel welcomed in their house and their warm personalities are your guarantee for a perfect holiday!

Best regards,

Alina

Breakfast with Etna view

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place. The apartment is equipped with nice and comfortable furniture. It is very calm and you have a gorgeous view to Etna and to the seaside. We recommend it to everybody who wants to explore the southeastern part of Sicilia. The new highway allows you to be very quickly in Catania or Syracus. But we always looked forward to get back to this wonderful home and to enjoy it.

The hosts are very friendly and helpful.

We yet recommended this place to our friends.

Beautiful holiday flat at Costa Saracena!

  • 5 of 5

We've spent six wonderful days at Maria's and Nando's home!

We found a well-equipped and delightful clean, spaceous flat with a wonderful view to the sea. Everything you needed was there and the flat is created with love and a personal note. The environment was very calm and we felt safe in the protected zone of the holiday village.

Maria and Nando were perfect hosts and they offered a service to us, we would have never imagined!!! Thank you again for the warm welcome, the quite good recommendations and explanations and as well for the great homemade cake and marmelade!

The only thing you need to know, if you rent the flat is, that you have to have a car to reach the sights in the surrounding - but everything can be reached easily by car.

You have to see Siracusa, Catania, the Etna,...

We can only really recommend this accomodation and hope to come back again one day!

All the best,

Feals like Heaven....

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in the appartment! It is really a beautiful house with view on the sparkeling blue sea and - when the view is clear enough - to the Etna. Nando even showed us how to get on the terrace on the roof where you can sit in comfortable chairs, drink our wine and enjoy the great view.

The appartment is very clean, perfectly equipped and has everything you need to spent a great holiday there, including air condition and a barbecue place. Maria was such a nice host for us! She gave us great ideas what to visit in the area and was preparing delicious food: Pasta a la Norma a la Bellini and a vegetable rice dish. Also her orange marmelade tastes great. One week was definitly too short: Syrakus, Noto, Catania, the Etna, Taormina...there are so many places you can easily reach by car.

We also would have liked to spend more time swimming and snorkeling on the nice rocky beach down the house. The house and the area felt very safe, quiet and private, so it is an ideal location to relax.

We absolutely can recommend this accomodation and we hope that maybe we can come back another time.
