Beautiful apartment in a villa with swimming pool and tropical garden

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


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 !

This place is in a great vacation, perfect for visiting Syracuse and the south east coast of Sicily. Charlotte is a fabulous host, the apartment is well appointed with a big bathroom and the kitchen has all you need. The garden and the pool are great and offer complete privacy. We really enjoyed our stay.

bellissimo soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati molto bene nella bella casa di Charlotte. Tutto è come si vede nelle foto, l'appartamento è molto pulito e dotato di tutto il necessario, il giardino è curatissimo e la piscina stupenda. Ottimo anche il supermercato a due passi dalla casa. Posizione tranquilla e comoda per visitare Siracusa e dintorni.

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.
