Excellent Location and Facilities

  • 5 of 5

This property is an excellent getaway for a couple or a couple with 1 or 2 children, it is set in a beautiful gated lemon grove which we were offered to help ourselves to on arrival. A very warm greeting from the owner with essential groceries already bought for us for breakfast the next day (we arrived on a Sunday evening so the local supermarkets were closed already when we got there). The owners' father neighbours the property, he was also very hospitable and friendly and we were made to feel that we could ask either of them if there was anything we needed or if we had a problem. Brilliant "Italian style" customer service from them both.

I would suggest it isnt suitable for toddlers or if you have mobility issues due to the style of the stairway/its bannister, and the bathroom being located downstairs. We managed to get English on one of the channels on the television (the film channel) - but other than that, it was Italian TV only.

The property was very clean and equipped as per description, very spacious. The current photos on this site are accurate. The kitchen utensils/pots and pans are basic/old fashioned which was fine for us and it had pretty much everything we needed, including a bbq which was lovely to use in this setting. There are dining tables and chairs at the front AND back of the property so you can follow the sun with al fresco dining!

I would advise that hiring a car is pretty essential in this area of Sicily and certainly for this property. Roads are rural, sometimes without pavements. The property is located absolutely perfectly for many trips to sites/pretty old towns/nature reserves/beaches within an hours drive away. Road signage isn't great so the sat nav (we used our mobiles) was essential. I would recommend learning a few basic phrases of Italian as we didn't come across many Sicilians that spoke English. Also be aware that if you are travelling out of their peak season (Sept - May) that some beach shops and cafes are closed so it is very quiet - excellent if you are looking to be away from high tourist footfall.

A few of our favourite bits:

Oasi Faunistica di Vendicari (coastal nature reserve, its main beach "Calamosche" is lovely too if you want a beach and exploration in one day)

Cava Grande di Cassibile (inland nature reserve - beautiful if you want a gentle hike on a cooler day into a canyon)

Noto (10min drive away - comes alive late afternoon/evening)

Owner's Response: Casa Falconara is close to many natural and cultural highlights of Sicily and I am sure your extensive feedback will be useful for our future guests. Thank you!

Comfortable and good location

  • 4 of 5

This would be a great location in milder weather - the house was immaculately clean and Corrado had lit a fire and bought in groceries for us. Situated in a grove of orange and lemon trees we had fresh juice every morning and felt safe and peaceful. Unsurprisingly the house not built for Winter use really and we found it to be very cold in December. The balcony and stairs wouldn't work for very young children - our five year old was fine but we were a bit nervous. I would certainly recommend for a family of 3-4 for a summer or spring break. Enjoy!

Good location high quality property

  • 4 of 5

This is a very well kept rented property and very spacious full of Sicilian character.

We found it very comfortable and private also very secure with automatic gates as you enter the property.

Corrado gave us a very warm welcome and information about the location.

If you like fresh fish go to Avola there are two good fish shops down by the beach.

I would recommend this property for it's location and quality.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay. Set within its own lemon grove this is the perfect spot to chill out and relax. We were made to feel most welcome on our arrival at Casa Falconara and it is is equipped with all the essentials for a great holiday. It is very spacious and is perfect for sitting outside either for a meal or chilling with a drink. Beaches are fairly close to hand and at this time of the year are practically deserted. There are lovely restaurants all within a few kilometers of the villa and all were very good. I would recommend the restaurant in Calabernardo which is near at hand. It has a very varied menu and the food , ambiance and staff were excellent. Noto is a beautiful town with many Baroque features, where you can wander aimlessly around the streets admiring the architecture. Casa Falconara is a great place to stay but you would require a car due to its rural setting.

Sicilian haven

  • 5 of 5

Casa Falconara was a great place to stay, it is the perfect base to explore the surrounding countryside. We were made extremely welcome and the house itself provided everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. There is much to see in this area from Baroque architecture to Mount Etna. There are lots of lovely beaches all along the coastline which in May are almost deserted. The Sicilians do eat late so a lot of the restaurants were not open till evening. We would recommend a restaurant on the front in Calabetnardo with the same name. It had an extensive menu and the food and service were excellent. It was just a few kilometres away. I would recommend Casa Falconara to those who have a car and like to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas. It was a beautiful setting in rural and agricultural area, very peaceful, relaxing and very comfortable.

Nearby: The location is ideal for exploring Sicily's southern coast:

- 2 km of one of the most beautiful sandy beaches of Sicily;

- 5 km from Noto, a beautiful town rebuild in baroque architecture after the earthquake of 1693.

- 2 km from the stunning natural reserve of 'Vendicari', great for walks and swimming;

- 12 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;

Noto is a magnificent little city famous for its stunning Baroque architecture, lies 5 kilometres away. You can’t miss the traditional afternoon stroll down its main street. Just 1 km north of the house you will find the small seaside resort of Lido di Noto. It has a promenade with cafes, gelaterias and a nice beach.

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. Ragusa is a popular destination for beach goers, as it boasts endless golden sandy beaches.
