I booked my large family group (we were 11, ages 20 to 81) in La Frescura for a four day stay in May, the start of our Sicilian holiday. Our hostess, Ida, made us feel at home right away and was very helpful with local knowledge and suggestions for great restaurants we would have never found on our own. The... More

La Frescura is one of the most peaceful and friendly places I've seen in the world - Ida and family are just lovely and support with any assistance needed, the location is perfectly clean and amazingly atmospheric. Though it feels like a quiet island, it's just the perfect spot to do day trips on Sicily to explore nature, culture and... More

It has been our third time at La Frescura and we'll come back for sure. Ida and her family are such great, helpful and loveable hosts in a picture-perfect location. Based in the middle of the family owned orange and lemon plantations the beautifully restored farmhouse is the perfect place to relax. The rooms are nice, spacious and clean and... More

There is a range of rooms here, some larger with cooking facilities, apartment-type. Situated in a nice, working orchard-area. Bird watchers: note the Scops Owl near the building (not in winter, when they usually are in Africa). Also access to nature reserves (e.g. near Noto) and the Etna, of course. Syracuse is nearby, a beautiful city. Road works (May 2013)... More

Although the place is lovely, we did not find the service was good so the overall experience was not the best. The room was big and clean but minimalist to the point were there was not even a glass or shampoo, just liquid soap. Beds were not made even though we stayed two nights. Breakfast, which is charged separately, was... More

it was like in the old italian movie... :) beautiful house in between oranges with warm and lovely hosts. Wonderful terrace in the sunset with a glass of wine. Our hosts were so kind to invite us for a big dinner all together in the garden, and next day they presented us great Siracusa and took us to the beach... More

Though inexperienced in agriculture living I must say this is a lovely place. Peaceful, quiet and tranquil. Perfect surroundings for exercises every morning and greeted by a horse whinny probably saying “Buon giorno” with a Sicilian dialect. Car is a must. La Frescura was a good base camp for exploring eastern and mid Sicily. Syracuse is only ten minutes ride... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Frescura is an ancient country house dating back to the 17th century. Completely done up in 2007, it is faithful to the architectural characteristics of its ancient origins. The two-story building is immersed in nature and surrounded by twelve hectares of citrus groves. The typical Sicilian "masseria" develops around a courtyard with direct access to the accommodations. The lodges are different from one another, in an ambiance of a simple and minimal country style, with a flair for comfort and attention to detail. All of them are en suite, and some of them self catering. Complement for all of them air conditioner, the kitchen are full service. At disposal for our guest: library (English, Italian, Dutch), common space, panoramic terrace, orange and lemon trees garden, parking, panoramic walking paths, bike rentals, market-garden, touristic information, maps and guidebook. The position represents an ideal compromise between the countryside, sea and city in a very quiet and relaxing environment. 6Km from Siracusa city, nearby the highway, easily accessible the airport, Catania and all the east coast of Sicily! ... more   less
