The Sicily region
Sicily is an autonomous region with special status of 5,045,176 inhabitants of Italy, with capital Palermo.
The territory of the region, which is part of Italy's island, consists almost entirely of the same name from the island, the largest island in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and the remaining part is formed by the islands of the Aeolian Islands, the Egadi and Pelagie, Pantelleria and Ustica .
It is the largest region of Italy (25,711 km ²) and its territory is divided into nine provinces, whose capitals are: Agrigento, Caltanissetta, Catania, Enna, Messina, Palermo, Ragusa, Siracusa, Trapani.
It 'the only Italian region to include two cities among the ten most populous country in Palermo and Catania. It is washed by the Tyrrhenian Sea to the north, south-west of the Strait of Sicily, the Ionian Sea to the east and north-east by the Strait of Messina, which separates it from Calabria.
The oldest human traces found on the island is dated to 12,000 BC about. Around 750 BC, Sicily became a Greek colony and in the next 600 years it was the main battlefield of the wars greek-Punic and Roman-Punic, which ended with the destruction of Carthage by Rome. After the fall of the Roman Empire in the fifth century, Sicily was a land of conquest, and during the High Middle Ages was subject to the Vandals,the Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans, was born in the Kingdom of Sicily, lasted from 1130 to 1816, subject to the crown of Aragon in Spain, the Holy Roman Empire and, finally, the Bourbons (later Kingdom of the Two Sicilies). It was joined to the rest of Italy in 1860. Even before the birth of the Italian Republic in 1946, Sicily was granted the special status of autonomous region that has its own parliament.
Syracuse is an Italian town of 123,361 inhabitants, capital of the province of Sicily.
Located on the southeast coast of the island, is the fourth largest city in Sicily by population, after Palermo, Catania and Messina, was once one of the largest metropolis of the ancient world, and the largest Greek city.
Near the city is the rock necropolis of Pantalica declared in 2005 World Heritage [UNESCO.
The name derives from the Syracuse siculo Syraka or Sùraka (plenty of water) for the presence of many watercourses and a swampy area that is the area of today Pantanelli. Both in greek and in latin is plural, Syracusae because the city was founded by Archias, a noble of Corinth in 734 BC, it became in a few years the Pentapolis as the original core, consisting of the island of Ortigia were added as other four groups: Acradina, Tyche, Neapolis and Epipoli.

"Truly a home away from home"
What a perfect name to describe this property!!!?.. This home is undoubtedly authentic Sicily, and undeniably charming, as is the property's owner, whom we are quite fond of- Corrado. I spent a most memorable and truly sensational week at this fantastic country farmhouse, with my husband and two young children, 6 and 8. I would absolutely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a rental in breathtaking Sicily. The home was more than we could have dreamed of, as it was filled with artifacts and decor reminiscent of the old Sicilian farmhouse it was originally, yet tastefully and comfortably equipped with all amenities travelers could ask for. It was cool in the evenings and the fans provided were more than enough to keep the rooms comfortable. My family absolutely fell in love with this home, and it's owner, Corrado! Upon arriving, Corrado met us, helped us feel welcome and at home, both within it's tranquil and beautiful grounds, and on the serene island of Sicilia itself! His recommendations, helpfulness,and genuinely warm nature, made LEAVING this wonderful place even more difficult! My children were so excited to see it, to spend the week, and were sad to leave. We felt good about the location of the property, as it was private, quiet, and yet also convenient to get to the autostrada for all of our day trips- Beautiful Taormina, Catania, Acireale, Siracusa , Noto, Avola...and more!!! Of course, as others have already written, the lemon trees, the outdoor features, barbecue, huge farmhouse table, seating, swimming pool and fantastic outdoor shower, were all outstanding features, however, it is really for the wonderful SPIRIT of this property and sincerity of it's owner, that I so highly recommend it. I only hope that I may return to Sicily and that I may stay in this home once again.....
Grazie Nicole, sei stata molto gentile con la tua recensione. Ancora grazie di cuore. Un bacio a te e a tutta la tua bella famiglia. A presto, Corrado!

"authentic sicilian charm"
Wir haben eine sehr entspannende, schöne Woche in diesem Haus verbracht. Wie beschrieben ist das Haus eher einfach, aber vollständig ausgestattet und sauber. Das grandiose ist der riesige Garten mit vielen verschiedenen Möglichkeiten in der Sonne oder im Schatten zu sitzen, zu essen, zu spielen... Unsere Tochter (21 Monate) hat es sehr genossen, auf der großen Terrasse zu spielen, die Kräuter und Bäume zu erkunden, die Katzen zu beobachten. Das Haus liegt in einem Gebiet von Plantagen und alten Häuschen, man ist wirklich ganz in Ruhe gelassen und kann das Meer von der Terasse aus funkeln sehen. Zum Strand muss man allerdings mit dem Auto fahren (wir hatten zu zweit mit Kind einen Fiat Panda, der sich wegen seiner Bodenhöhe gut für die Schotterpisten - und auch für unsere sonstigen Ausflüge - bewährt hat), die nächsten kleinen Strandabschnitte sind ca. 10 Min entfernt, es gibt aber schönere Strände in Richtung Noto. Avola (ca 10 Min bis ins Zentrum) ist eine untouristische, authentische sizilianische Kleinstadt mit hübschen Piazzas zum Frühstücken etc. Ein großer Supermarkt ist auch in wenigen Minuten erreichbar. Das Haus steht in einem super Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Corrado ist ein sympathischer, hilfsbereiter Vermieter, der einem in allen Belangen gerne weiterhilft.
Thank you very much for the review. I hope to see you soon. A kiss to everyone. Corrado

"A beautiful home nestled in an area that is characterized by its incurable thirst for poetry."
he farmhouse rural Elambeco where we stayed a week in July is a place that hardly scorderemo and where we hope with all my heart to return soon. It is a large country house clean and very spacious renovated with love and attention to every detail by the owner who was able to reassess corners and objects belonging to the rural past and make this one a unique place to spend quiet 'a vacation. Our comment goes beyond satisfaction as 'in addition to being a house with a' special atmosphere and charm, still boasts a strategic position to visit places of sea and culture very fascinating. Its owner and 'truly an exceptional person who knows how to welcome and advise its guests. Never stop to thank fact, for letting us see the lakes of Cassibile and some of the most beautiful beaches of Sicily, in the reserve of Gelsomineto and Vendicari. Finally I would like to emphasize the beauty of not only internal but also external area with oven equipped, with a terrace for eating and beam outside to watch the stars at night, but also of the orchard that surrounds it, hundreds of fragrant lemon trees. And remember, finally, that by entering into this estate, as well as the smells of mint, oregano and jasmine, already 'just the sight of an ancient olive tree is worth the trip. My kids really liked the presence of a small swimming pool and a hammock supported by two plants of grapefruit. Definitely recommend this place to friends and family and all those who know how to take care of things truly beautiful!
