Mamma Susy is located on the eastern side of Augusta, on the Ionian Sea, in the province of Syracuse. The rocky coastline offers many small coves that allow easy bathing in these crystal clear waters, fantastic for swimming and diving.

This stretch of sea is not frequented by mass tourism because only local homes have direct access. At 1500 meters from the property are supermarket, bar-restaurant, and other services.
What strikes particularly in this area, is the tranquility that you can enjoy, while you are in symbiosis with nature, represented in this case by the expanse of the sea and the sky, day and night. In fact, at sunset, other panoramic sceneries open up that are as intoxicating as those that can be enjoyed in the daylight, if not more so.
The center of Augusta is about 2 km away, and it is possible to take advantage of all the services that you may need during your stay. Among other things, in Augusta you can also admire some places of primary interest, including the Spanish Gate, and even more ancient, the Swabian Castle.
A good suggestion is to visit Megara Hybla (foto,10 km), a Greek settlement with large ruins. Another Unesco site: Pantalica (20 km), 5,000 tombs carved into the rock, a breathtaking place where nature, landscape and archaeology work together. 

 

We are in the eastern side of Sicily, the homeland of Etna  volcano the biggest one in Europe: lava flows, caves, forests...

I suggest you to enjoy our  Etna tour

We are in the halfway between Catania and Syracuse, both 30 kms away.

In Catania I suggest you to park the car in Piazza Alcalà and then have a walk starting from the worldwide famous Pescheria (photo, outdoor fish market), then to Piazza Duomo (the hearth of Catania) then walking the Via Etnea, the main street of the town, a pedestrian road with many shops, cafe and wonderful buldings in Baroque style. In via Etnea there is also the Roman amphitheatre (in Piazza Stesicoro) and the Villa Bellini (Catania's public garden).

Siracusa (photo, Unesco’s), and its Greek masterpieces it’s almost 30 km’s away.

The downtown of Siracusa is the wonderful island of Ortigia : a masterpiece of beauty.

The nice Syracuse, among the most visited towns of Sicily

 

Another tips is the visit of Pantalica (Unesco’s, 30 kms), with its more than 3000 graves carved on the rock, a river, a forest and a sort of mistery all around.

Taormina, the pearl of Sicily, is almost 70km’s away: it’s a magic place with the amazing Isolabella (photo) and its narrow streets rich in history, a sort of vintage atmosphere and fashion: cool!

If you are nature lovers, here there are two great places: Vendicari (foto, 50 kms) and Cavagrande del Cassibile (30 kms) where nature, archeology and birds live together in perfect harmony.

 

You are in the Sicily of Baroque style, so you can't miss the amazing Noto (40 kms) an Unesco's world heritage.

Its time to eat something and my tip is to do not miss the Pasta alla Norma and to have, at least once, a typical Sicilian breakfast: granita and brioche!

Of course, we suggest you to enjoy our Silvana's Cooking Class, just few kilometers away from the villa.

And, of course, fish, fish, fish …

Scozia (Airbnb)
stunning location! 2 min walk to rocky beach but areas safe for children to swim in. Great snorkeling opportunities with marine fish. house was very clean. air conditioning in bedrooms. modern, clean bathrooms. very big, open garden with amazing views of ocean and Mount Etna. Sun loungers and outdoor BBQ are great. very warm welcome from Alfio and great communication and responsivity throughout. supermarket 5 mins drive (20 mins walk). Internet is ok in certain areas of the house. would definitely book again.
USA (airbnb)
We absolutely enjoy our stay in this Villa. The sea and volcano Etna view is incredible. We also love the easy sea access. We spent a lot of time swimming in the sea, it is only a few steps away from the Villa. Gorgeous place, we hope to go back!
England (Airbnb)
Lovely property. High quality finish. Lovely garden and straight onto a rocky cove which was magical for swimming and jumping off rocks into the sea. Immediate location is perfect with views over etna and the sea. Augusta is not particularly touristy but good location for driving to other attractions which aren’t far away. Kitchens could do with a bit more equipment with need for sharp knife and chopping board but high level of finish generally. Flexible and friendly re check in. We were 8 people (2families) and took both apartments and annex. Needed a few more comfortable chairs on the terrace to allow one for all in a larger group. Would recommend.
Austria (Airbnb)
We were a group of 11 people staying in this beautiful place. The view from the villa is amazing, the outdoor space is perfect for a larger group of friends or bigger families. We had the whole villa to ourselves, even the separate "extra house", although that is usually just opened for a group of 12 or more people! The communication with the host was perfect, an associate of Ivana helped us with basically everything, from the late check-in to a spontaneous early check-out, even helped us organizing transport to the airport. The villa is located a bit remote, so without a car it is really hard to reach, but the view is spectacular. We were a bit unlucky, as there were many jellyfish in the sea, but it was amazing nevertheless.
