  • 5 of 5

"We were extremely happy with Rosanna's villa and surroundings. The apartment is clean, spacious and comfortable with all the amenities you could possibly need for a pleasant stay. It is situated in a very quiet street in a residential area and is only 5 minutes' walk from a lovely wild rocky beach. The beautiful sandy beach of Fontane Bianche is only 5-10 minutes' drive away by car. As it is a family holiday home, the apartment has a warm, personal, friendly feel. The villa is surrounded by a beautiful green garden full of trees and brightly-coloured flowers, and there are numerous loungers and sunbeds where you can chill out.

We really loved our stay at the Villa Bifamiale. On our arrival, which was around midnight, Rosanna and her husband met us at the motorway exit, led us by car to the villa and gave us numerous personal sightseeing tips for our stay. The family is truly delightful and their kindness made our stay in Sicily all the happier. I would say that this was one of the best holidays we have had, and we will definitely return to this holiday villa."

"è la prima volta che prenotiamo su internet, siamo partiti in 7 ed abbiamo trovato un'abitazione conforme alle descrizioni, pulito,confortevole(anche per più di 7 persone) e ben arredato.dislocato dal centro ma vicinissimo ad uno dei punti di ritrovo di fontane bianche; per gli amanti dei fondali scogliosi consigliamo la spiaggia rocciosa a 100m dalla casa.

ottima accoglienza da parte dei proprietari!

speriamo di ritornarci!"

  • 5 of 5

"We had a great stay in a very nice and clean house in a quiet street in Fontane Blanche. The equipment is sometimes a little bit old, but everything you want is available.

The garden is around the house, so you have sun (or shadow if you wish) all day. The house is divided in 2 apartments: one below, the other on the first floor. The first floor wasn't rented the weeks we were there. Luckily for us, because if rented it feels less private (the 'neighboors' look on your place when you are outside). We were here the first weeks of may. Fontane Bianche is awaking from the wintersleep in that period. If you are looking form much people and fun, you should be there a few weeks later. If you are looking for a nice quiet house, it is a perfect place. Also for carrtrips (you need a car there).

The surrounding was fine (Siracussa, Noto, Ragussa and - of course - the Etna are easily to drive. The cava Grande near Avola is a great walk (330 m down and thereafter climbing back).

Rosanna was very helpfull. She waited for us at the exit of the motorway en drove us to the house and had arranged a great cake for our daughter's birthday on the day of our arrival! Grazia!!"

"Sehr ruhig gelegenes Haus, mit großem Garten und Terrasse rund um das Haus. Ausgesprochen freundliche Vermieter, wir haben uns sehr über die Orangen, Kekse und Getränke gefreut, die bei unserer nächtlichen Ankunft bereitstanden. Alles vorhanden, was man braucht, außer scharfe Messer. Einrichtung des Hauses einfach, aber in Ordnung. Uns hat es gut gefallen und wir würden auch wieder hinfahren."

Car: necessary

The place is a few Kilometres far from the motorway exit and you can reach Siracusa in 15 minutes. You can reach Catania airport in 45 minutes. The house owner will take you home, from Catania airport or Siracusa railstation. If you want, he will wait for you at the motorway exit ( Cassibile exit, from Siracusa - Gela motorway )and will accompany you to the nearest car rental.

Siracusa is not only a city of sun and sea, but it is also a city with a millennial history and rich in monuments: for that reason has been declared patrimony of the humanity from the UNESCO. We recommendd excursions to visit the Archaeological Museum, the Archaeological Park with the Greek Theater ( where every year in the months of May and June the classical representations of the Greek tragedies take place ), the Latomies etc....The visit to the most ancient part in our city, the splendid island of Ortigia, is called for admiring its monuments, old churches, typical restaurants and characteristic artisan shops scattered in all of its narrow streets. There are other beautiful towns you can visit, such as Noto, in which you can admire the typical Sicilian Baroque.
