This was the highlight accommodation of our visit to Sicily. Francesco is such a welcoming, trusting and friendly host, willing to help with literally everything and answer all questions. The house is perfect for two couples, two friends or more, or a small family. There is a huge lawn to play on, two patios, both with tables, one patio with an outdoor grill. There are screens on all of the windows, which is such a relief in the summer from the bugs. The house is decorated tastefully and practical at the same time, and each room is air-conditioned. Being able to wash our clothes was a huge plus, and there is a fold-up rack in order to dry them outdoors. Be sure to ask how to wash a normal load, it always varies from country to country.
The property is completely private with a locked gate and there is room to park two cars within the private grounds. There are a couple of pizza places not far, and only about 1km away there there is a nice grocery store for basics, with a terrific deli counter with fresh cheeses and cold cuts (Viale dei Lidi, 3, 96100, Fontane Bianche). Larger supermarkets can be reached only a few minutes drive in the next largest town. The Fontane Bianche beach is very nice and it has what looks like a nice beach restaurant that we did not have time to try. From this location, day trips can be made to Syracuse/Ortigia, Noto, Ragusa, Modica and more, which makes it a very practical place as a base.
We would return to this accommodation without hesitating and we can't thank Francesco enough for his kind hospitality and welcome. Highly recommended!
Location drew us to this modern accommodation, as touring Southeast Sicily was our purpose. The photos reflect beautifully, the modern, clean, bright, serene space open for enjoyment. What we discovered was the ease of water entry right outside our private garden, the short, walk-able distance to the infamous Fontane Bianche Beach and the convenience of great eateries, grocery suppliers and entertainment. The vibe here entices you into a state of relaxation and uncluttered, uncomplicated living. It's privacy is rewarding while still in the heart of a beach town. Day trips to all notable Sicilian towns such as Noto, Modica, Marzamemi, Ragusa, Agrigento and even Malta, are realistic and enjoyable. The unit lacks no convenience nor comfort and the hosts are extremely knowledgeable of the surroundings and approachable. Our stay here was truly a breath of fresh air on every level and will remain a top destination for a return visit.
