Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Comprising a main house and two annexes, this place is perfect for families travelling together. While the interiors are missing any distinct Sicilian flavour, the beds are comfortable, and there’s plenty of space for a large group. We think you’ll spend most of your time outside anyway, thanks to the saltwater swimming pool, Mediterranean Sea views and summer kitchen. If you’re keen to explore, Syracuse and Ortigia are easily reached by car and Varco 23 Beach is within walking distance.
