A charming apartment overlooking the Teatro di Noto and the Church of S. Domenico, Casa al Teatro is situated in a beautiful palazzo and is spread over two levels. It is tastefully furnished and has a large terrace where you can enjoy a panorama that sweeps from the hills, the sea to the precious baroque architecture of the Theatre of Noto and the Church of S. Domenico.
Casa al Teatro consists of an entrance hall, a lounge with sofa bed, a kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One of the bedrooms and a bathroom are in the attic, another level created in the apartment.
From the kitchen and from the dining room you can access a beautiful large 50-m2 terrace that allows a privileged view of large areas of the old town of Noto.
The rooms are all air-conditioned and have central heating and Wi-Fi.
It is possible to park on the streets below the apartment for a small hourly fee during the day.
We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best.
Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did.
We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental.
Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.
We are a family of 4 from the UK and stayed for 1 week at this apartment. The apartment was exactly as we expected - centrally located in Noto's beautiful centre, spacious, clean, well-maintained and well equipped for our needs. If you are looking at apartments in Noto you probably already know it is a lovely city and a great base for exploring Southern and Eastern Sicily.
We were pleased we chose this apartment. All three bedrooms have plenty of room. One of the bedrooms is accessed by a spiral staircase which some people might find a little tight but worked well for us and our children. The living room, bathroom and kitchen also had good space and suited our needs. We tended to eat out as there are such great restaurants and cafes on the doorstep. The apartment has a roof terrace, although we were out most of the time so we did not make much use of it.
Our arrival and departure were handled very well with good communication and we had contact details for any problems (which we didn't need as we had no problems during our stay).
Noto has a beautiful centre and the flat is in the busy heart of the city with some noise late at night from nearby eating places (we came in peak season). Perhaps not the place for an early night or a family with very young children used to Northern European hours ... but then the point of being in the centre is of course to take advantage of the fantastic places on your doorstep.
Parking our hire car was manageable, either close to the flat at a cost or further afield for no cost (sometimes nearby, sometimes a 10 minute walk depending on your luck).
What could make this apartment better? Perhaps more practical information in the flat about local facilities for the first time visitor - e.g. location of supermarkets and opening hours, names of good streets to park on, a book for visitors to pass on tips for future visitors etc to make things even easier.
Overall, we were happy with this apartment and would recommend it to friends and family.
The apartment was lovely, very stylish and so conveniently located for the town. We enjoyed the pastry shop downstairs every day and discovering the delicious places to eat in Noto.
My only quibble was as a flat that slept 8 there should be a few more chairs. Kitchen chairs, Living Room Chairs and outside chairs to enjoy the magnificent terrace in comfort.
We verbleven een week tijdens de kerstvakantie in dit zeer goed gelegen appartement in Noto. We bezochten van daaruit Siracusa, Modica, Ragusa, de Etna,... Onze dagen waren heerlijk gevuld. 's Avonds deden we nog een wandeling in het prachtig verlichte stadje en trakteerden onszelf op een dessertje in één van de vele banketbakkerijtjes. Familie uit Brussel
We were a bit suspicious after reading the previous reviews which were only super-positive and after researching about how (negative) reviews might be suppressed on certain websites.
So I directly called Giulia and her Catania-based colleague Joris from Intosicily who reassured us.
The place is truly wonderful: Clean, spacious and tastefully decorated, very new. Bright!
The location is absolutely perfect at the calmer end of the historic old town and with the entrance just next door to the historic theatre. 5 spacious flights of stairs up.
Views from the balcony and from the patio are exactly as shown here and we thoroughly enjoyed these on a daily basis.
Breakfast was always on the patio. We were torn between the cappuccino / the brioche in the local bars and the sun / the view on our patio with simpler coffee and more basic cooking - guess who won every day after the first......
The owner is a very sympathetic gentleman and when the internet didn't work, he fixed it almost instantly. Grazie!
We used this spacious apartment with only 3 persons, so I can't say, how the upstairs bedroom is on a daily-use-basis and how hot it might get there in August - we didn't need any aircon or heating in November.
The staircase between the 2 levels is a bit narrow, but manageable except for maybe someone with a bad knee or hip or VERY obese.
The upstairs bathroom is not huge, but sufficient and the shower works very well.
The downstairs bathroom is large and equipped with everything one needs: Tub with shower hose, bidet, toilet, sink and closet, very nice tiling.
Kitchen is large, great gas stove, open access to the patio (like from the living room via the small bedroom). Fridge and freezer, toaster, small espresso cooker, large amount of crockery.
Very large and nicely decorated living room with satellite TV (like all bedrooms. No international news channels which we didn't miss for our week ), an iPhone music dock and a great vista from the window / balcony.
Bedrooms large and small (1 each on the ground floor) which we used very nice and with sufficient closet space / chest of drawers.
The smaller bedroom ist between the living room and the patio towards which it has a private glass door.
If I had to find something to criticize, I'd say that the beds were a bit hammock-like from a non-rigid underframe, but we slept very well nevertheless.
Overall, it was a perfect place for us and we would definitely try to book it again for our next stay!

- Tastefully furnished with every comfort, large terrace
- Beautiful Baroque town with all facilities.
- Ideal location to visit beautiful places like Siracusa, Ragusa, Modica, Ragusa ... nature and coast in general
Extremely comfortable apartment exactly as described. High ceilings and tastefully decorated with every modern convenience. Spacious and private roof terrace ideal for al fresco dining. Wonderful to walk out into a magnificent piazza and the main Corso which is just like a film set. Shops, bars and restaurants all within 5 min walk although very quiet at night. We visited Siracusa, Vendicari, Modica, Akrai and Mount Etna and our favourite beach, Eloro, was only 10 min away by car. We would highly recommend this apartment for couples and families with older children and we hope to return soon.
Noto is a magnificent little city famous for its stunning Baroque architecture. You can’t miss the traditional afternoon stroll down its main street.
Just 6 km from the house you will find the small seaside resort of Lido di Noto. It has a promenade with cafes, gelaterias and a nice beach. Try to find the beach Eloro just south of Lido di Noto. It is part of Vendicarì.
15 km away you will find one of the most beautiful cities in the Mediterranean, Syracuse - famous for its Ancient Greek ruins. The heart of modern Syracuse lies in its historical quarter, situated on the peninsula of Ortigia.
The neighbouring province of Ragusa has cities such as Ragusa Ibla and Modica, which are known for their Baroque architecture and their houses that have been dug out of the region’s limestone rock.
Noto is a perfect base for exploring Sicily's southern coast:
- the most beautiful sandy beaches of Sicily;
- Noto, a town rebuild in baroque architecture after the earthquake of 1693.
- 7 km from the stunning natural reserve of 'Vendicari', great for walks and swimming;
- 10 km from the mosaics covering the floors of the Roman villa Tellaro;
- 15 km from Syracuse
- 20 km from the harbour of Marzamemi, a picturesque fishing village with a nice boulevard, good restaurants and shops with local products;
