We have just returned from a 10 night stay at Villa Meridiana and had such a fantastic time. The grounds of the villa were absolutely beautiful with a pretty and well maintained garden. The pool was excellent, family friendly and very clean with an outdoor shower. There were sun terraces around the property and plenty of loungers, parasols etc. The adults were able to relax while the children had lots of room to play. The main villa was stylishly furnished, clean, bright and comfortable. The kitchen was wonderfully compact with a lovely outdoor dining area. The rooms were all charming and very well equipped. The annex to the property which sleeps 6, was also well furnished and practical. The villa was within walking distance of a stretch of sandy beaches. The area around the villa is not commercial and gives an authentic taste of Southern Sicily. For shops, restaurants etc hiring a car is necessary. Marina di Ragusa is a five to ten minute drive away and has lots of restaurants and shops etc. We found this to be the best place locally to eat out on an evening. We visited Ragusa Ibla and Modica which were both around a 40 minute drive away. We all had a marvellous time at Villa Meridiana and would definitely recommend it.
