Like a ship gliding on the Ionian sea: this Sicily villa is located inside the most exclusive residence of Catania-Syracuse area. The main structure of the villa consists all on one level, with two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and three single bedrooms. In the villa we also find two dependances: one with a double bed and two singles; and one with a double bed. Pictures better than the words explain the beauty of this exclusive place so check it out!

We are close to Agnone Bagni (at 2 km away), a wonderful beach with a great view of the volcano Etna. Syracuse (Unesco's site) is almost 30 km away and so is Catania and Etna. Taormina, the beatuiful Taormina, is just 60 km away. A good tip is to visti Megara Hybla (10 km away), a Greek settlement with great ruins. Another Unesco's site is Pantalica (20 km away), 5.000 graves carved in to the rock, a breathtaking place where nature, landscape and archaeology all work together. An other Unesco's site is the City of Noto, the pearl of Baroque style, 50 km away. If you are a birdwatcher I suggest the natural reserve of Vendicari (50 km away). My wife Silvana, that is a chef, suggests the following menù: pasta with “vongole” (clams), tuna “all'agrodolce” sweet and sour, cassata (dessert). Also, she said to me the following: "Tell the visitors to buy a fish (an “orata” sea bream or “spigola” sea Bass or “pesce spada” sword fish or ...) and cook it on the BBQ. Then, if you want to eat it like a Sicilians do, just stuff it with lemon, parsley , garlic and oil". Buon appetito!
