The villa is a spacious, cool haven. It is clean and very well maintained, and the garden is spectacular with cactus, palm trees and bird-of-paradise flowers, amongst many other exotic plants.
We spent two weeks there, and found it a perfect base from which to explore many of the fascinating historical sites and stunningly beautiful scenery. It is less than an hour's drive from Catania airport and close to Syracuse, with its amazing layers of history and culture, plus excellent cafes, shops and restaurants. We also visited the Pantalica Necropoli, set in the Anapo Valley, Marzamemi (a wonderful fishing village), Noto and Noto Antica, and for a further drive, the amazing temples of Agrigento, and Taormina. The white, sandy beach at Fontane Bianchi is just a short walk away, set on the warm, blue Ionian sea.
The villa is a brilliant base from which to explore further afield and provides a cool, restful haven for relaxation. The owners live off-site but are nearby to attend to the garden most days and were so friendly and helpful - we really were sorry to leave! We loved every minute of our holiday!
