Beautiful apartment in a villa with swimming pool and tropical garden

Sleeps4
Bedrooms 2
Bathrooms1
Space 645 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights

Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, fully equipped kitchen , large bathroom with tub and shower

The villa is divided into 2 independent apartments. My husband and I live in one of them. The guest apartment is composed of 1 bedroom with double bed and air conditioning, 1 bedroom with 2 beds (one of them queen-size) and air-conditioning, a kitchen with oven, refrigerator with freezer, washing machine and all necessary cooking items and a large bathroom with shower and tub.

At the outside our guests can enjoy a private patio (which offers absolute privacy and faces south)with a table and 4 chairs, barbecue and pizza oven and a beautiful garden.

There is also a table football and a badminton set.

Free functioning wifi

Free parking inside the property

Furthermore there is a large pool for the exclusive use of our guests;

The house is situated in a residential area and is mostly surrounded by countryside, therefor I recommend a car to get around

Just a 2-minute walk away there is a large well stocked supermarket which also sells ready-made food to take away.

My house is located in a strategic position, in a 15 minutes drive you can reach Ortigia (the old city center with the famous little beach Calarossa), in 5 minutes the greek theater and in 20 minutes the nearest beaches. Also the motorway access is easy and fast, making it ideal for visiting places like Noto, Taormina, Ragusa and Modica and to explore the south-east coast of Sicily.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay in the apartment for a week during mid-July and would recommend it to others without hesitation. Charlotte is a welcoming and delightful hostess and was concerned to ensure our comfort and satisfaction at all times.

Siracusa is an excellent location from which to explore the eastern side of Sicilia by car. The city itself has much to offer in terms of things to see and do: generally exploring and visiting the sights could easily occupy a couple of days in itself. Further afield, the autostrada gives straightforward access to many other towns and sites to both the north and south, as well as inland. Places we visited included Noto, Ragusa, Taormina and the Roman Villa del Casale. All were memorable and are highly recommended. Mount Etna looms in the distance as a backdrop to many a view.

The apartment accommodates 2-4 people with comfort and comprises the rear half of the owners’ property, which is set in a walled garden. The bedrooms are of a good size, while there is a large bathroom and a kitchen. It is furnished to a good standard, is provided with very effective aircon and has Wi-Fi that will support video calls. There’s no internal relaxed seating, although for much of the year that will hardly be necessary. Outside, there is a patio with seating for dining together with a BBQ range. The swimming pool is a delightful place to cool off and relax in. All in all, an excellent place to stay.

Wonderful stay !

  • 5 of 5

First of all, thank you Charlotte and Sebastiano for making ours holidays so amazing. We discovered a beautiful island and we met great people and especially our hosts who were more than great, very helpful, ready to help us in all situations. The house was lovely, spacious, well appointed and very clean. The garden was beautiful, very well maintained as is the pool. The bedding was very new and comfortable. We had a great time in Ortigia or Fontane Bianche through Charlotte aid. She also was kind enough to pick us up at the bus station and even for our departure. Special mention for the hammock and BBQ! In short we had a fabulous time in Sicily thanks to Charlotte and Sebastiano the best hosts we have ever been.

Thank again.

Bisous de Paris, Gwen, Laurène, Sébastien et Soraya.

Inoubliable !!!

  • 5 of 5

Le séjour passé dans la maison de Charlotte et Sébastien à été exceptionnel. Nous avons été accueillis par des personnes extrêmement chaleureuses et bienveillantes . Ce sont des anges et leur maison est véritable paradis terrestre ! Ce fut un déchirement de devoir partir et quitter ce hâvre de paix et nos hôtes si généreux. Un tel lieu et de si belles personnes méritent le respect ! Merci pour tout cet enchantement 😍?😍?😍? Nous reviendrons c'est certain !

lekker genieten

  • 4 of 5

Het is een mooie en rustige villa.

De eigenaren wonen aan de voorkant, maar die zie en hoor je niet, maar zijn er als je ze nodig hebt!

Prima verblijf en van alle gemakken voorzien, zelfs een supermarkt op 150 meter afstand.

Angenehme Tage

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Das Mietauto war durch das automatische Tor vor eventuellen nächtlichen Zugriffen gut geschützt. Hauptsächlich haben wir die nach Süden ausgerichtete Terrasse genossen, abends sogar mit Sternenhimmel. Zur Altstadt von Syrakus (Ortigia) sind es nur knapp fünf Kilometer. Zwei defekte Stühle wurden sofort getauscht. Charlotte ist eine sehr nette, perfekte Gastgeberin, die sich in Sizilien auskennt und uns sehr gute Tipps gab. Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr gut geeignet, um den Südosten Siziliens zu erkunden (ca. 1 Autostunde von Catania, Flughafen), z.B. Piazza Armerina (römische Anlage mit tollen Mosaiken), Noto oder Modica.

Very nice house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Charlotte's house for the last two weeks of June. The house was easy to find with the instructions of Charlotte and navigation. It was clean and comfortable. Both airco's worked great. It was especially nice that basic things like toilet paper hand/washing soap, cooking oils etc where all supplied with the house. The pool was clean and the BBQ was very nice. Charlotte was a great help. The location is great for exploring the east coast of Sicily. The Conad supermarket is quite large and only 200m from the house. A little bit further there is also a discount supermarktet (ARD) which is good if you need more supplies for a whole family. The nearest pub and pizzeria are about a 20 minute walk. Too bad that the busstop is closed, so you will need a car. We really recommend this house!!

Car: recommended

Our house is located in Siracusa, a few kilometers from the historic center, the theater greek (reached on foot in max. 20-30 minutes) and the beaches. At 100 meters away is a supermarket with takeaway and a bus stop. The house is surrounded by the Sicilian countryside. The location of the house is ideal for those who want a holiday in total relaxation, yet is close to Ortigia (4 km), the Greek Theatre (2 km) and 25 minutes drive takes you to the nearest beach. People who like to go hiking there Pantalica 30 mins drive.
