This villa is located in the prestigious area of Syracuse: Plemmirio. The villa is surrounded by other exclusive properties inside a secluded area. You’ll be greeted by a big garden in which is located the large swimming pool. The pool area is also provided with a nice porch, ideal for summer meals. A pine tree greenery, will welcome you to the villa which is set on 2 levels. On the ground floor we find: a living room with a terrace just in front the the swimming pool; a kitchen, a double bedroom and a bathroom. Through a spiral staircase we arrive at the second level where we have two more double bedrooms (one of which with a spacious terrace that overlooks the pool) and another bathroom. Next to the kitchen, outside, there is a barbecue area. 200 meters away from the house there is the access to the sea with a stunning lido provided with restaurant, bar, solarium.

For we Siracusani, Plemmirio represents an ncontaminated coast, a Natural reserve and also the spot were took place the battle against Romans (II b.C.)
It is located at around 3 km’s away from Syracuse, the wonderful and powerfull town of the past (V b.C.). Here we can admire many impressive monuments of the past as, for instance, the Greek theatre, the Orecchio di Dionisio, the temple of Athena, whose columns, presently, are incorporated inside the Duomo, as aisles and the archaeological museum Paolo Orsi, the biggest and among the most important in the world.
Worth a visit also the museum of Papyrus.
Ortigia is the downtown of Syracuse and is a little island linked to the mailand through two bridges. It’s a unique place, nice and full of life and with a great outdoor market.
Piazza Duomo is the hearth of Ortigia but don’t forget to visit the fonte Aretusa (where still now Papyrus grows), and to have a walk along the promenade.
15 km’s away here it is the capital of Baroque style in the world: Noto.
Close by Noto here it is Vendicari, a sort of paradise for birds, birdwatchers, sea lovers, naturalists, archaeologists …
Another great naturalistic site is Cavagrande del Cassibile (15 km’s), a canyon with lakes, gorges and many ancient settlements carved on the rock.
Do you want to see 5.000 tombs carved on the rock, an underground river and a lush forest: welcome to Pantalica (Unesco's), 40 km's away
Etna, the biggest volcano in Europe (3.300 sqm) is 60 km’s away.
Just a last tip: have a pizza or a fish meal in Ortigia.
And don’t forget to taste the granita for breakfast!
