We, a family of five, spent one week in Villa Silvia in the first half of October. Villa Silvia is a very spacious apartment located in the center of the beach town of Fontane Bianche. The apartment is located on the upper floor of a two story house and has a very big and beautiful terrace around it and a big living room inside. Both apartments, the one on the lower floor and the one on the upper floor are for rent, but they are only rented singularly, in order to be able to enjoy the house by oneself. The apartment comes with everything your heart desires, from dishes to pots, dishwasher, coffee machine, washing machine, hair-dryer, beach towels, I have never seen an apartment that is so nicely furnished and I have rented several over the years. The owners stay there during the month of August. Mario the son of the owners was there waiting for us and showed us around, he also offered us a basket with fruits and cake, he was very nice. The house is full of brochures and guidebooks for the region. We did not need his help any time during the visit, but he told us he lives not far away and can be there in 20 min. There is a small Supermarket about 500 m away on the main road, that was open from 8 am-7 pm and the owner told me, that starting middle of October, he would reduce the opening hours 8 am-3 pm. For shopping there is the small town of Cassibile really close, a few km from the center of Fontane Bianche, with all kind of shops or the Shopping Centers of Avola (Lidl, Eurospin, Conad). Fontane Bianche is a beach town with a lot of nice big villas, but also small houses, very few people live there year round and the secondary roads are not in great shape. During low season it is very quite. The public beach is about 200 m away from the house, it is not so big, so I imagine that during the summer it must be crowded. Right now it was calm and nice, even with a working shower. Fontane Bianche is well located, so we took trips to different places, Siracusa (Ortigia), Avola, Noto, Modica, Marzamemi, Catania,.... The highway is very close. When we were there the weather was unusually humid, so there were quite a bit of mosquitos outside the house during evenings and early in the morning, but in the house there were very few and the house offers several anti.mosquito devices.
