Angelica & Gino Villa is located just five minutes' walk from Fontane Bianche beach, and to the nearby towns of Ortigia, Avola & Noto. Fontane Bianche is quiet and peaceful, yet only fifteen minutes car journey from the larger resorts such as Siracusa.
The villa has easy access to all amenities, including the local supermarket, and many excellent restaurants for eating out.
The Bus Stop is directly outside which takes you to Avola and Siracusa/Ortigia. There is private secured parking on the driveway if you have your own car.
Self-catering 1st Floor villa with stunning sea views, just five minutes from the beach. Private balcony for al fresco dining. Ideal for families seeking relaxation. Local supermarket across the road. Secured Parking in drive-way.
SLEEPING CAPACITY & SOFA-BED: 8 to 11 people:
There are 2 Queen Size Beds (160cm x 200cm) and 1 new IKEA Queen Size Sofa/Day Bed, spread between the 3 bedrooms.
There is also a new Queen size (160cm x 200cm) Ikea Sofa/Day bed in the living room which sleeps 2 adults or 3 children comfortably.
The photos of the living room & smaller third room do not show the new sofa beds as yet. New photos will be taken soon. There is no Baby Cot. The 1st Floor Villa can sleep a total of 8-9 comfortably. For families who have a mixture of adults and children, then it is possible for upstairs to sleep 11 people because 2 additional single beds can be placed in the property by placing 1 single bed in each double room or placing the 2 single beds in the living room.
FOR LARGER GROUPS OF UP TO 14 GUESTS WE CAN OFFER THE DOWNSTAIRS VILLA (SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY)
Although there is a photo of a Baby's Cot/Bed, this is to demonstrate there is the space to put one. We do not and can not provide this bed. For safety and hygiene purposes, we recommend to all guests that small babies should have their own pop-up travel beds or that you purchase a new travel cot from the local baby store.
AIR-CON & TRADITIONAL FANS:
One of the Double Rooms have an Air-Con unit and the other 2 Bedrooms have traditional portable fans. The Living Room has an Air-Con Unit. We find that the Villa's 2 Air-Con units are enough to keep the villa cool and spread to all rooms. It is important that when the Air-Con is on, you do not leave windows and doors open as this can cause damage to the units and not provide the a cool temperature.
THE DIPPING POOL & GARDEN - IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
The Dipping Pool is shared with the downstairs owners & their guests. The downstairs villa is not always occupied so you may have sole use of the swimming pool and garden. It is cleaned and maintained by the owners or a designated person. Those with babies, children who are not toilet trained and children under 5, will need to wear special swimming nappies so there is no risk of contaminating the water because of a toilet accident or laziness. Regular/Standard nappies are not sufficient.
The pool is 1.20 metres deep. Driving and running around the pool is not allowed. Guests that do not follow theses rules will be told they cannot use the pool until they change their behaviour. Dangerous and disturbing behaviour will not be tolerated. Parents and adults are responsible for all members of their families and guests, as well as themselves. There is no life guard facility. A disclaimer will need to be signed prior to check in to state that all rules regarding the pool and garden are understood.
The Villa's front garden and grounds are child friendly, and there are electric gates for security so that the main road can not be accessed easily by children and strangers can not enter. It is a great place for families and as Owners we spend the summer (July & August) here with our own children and grandchildren, but we do not tolerate mis-behaved and non-disciplined children or teenagers who wish to run around the garden and downstairs villa. The downstairs rear garden (not visible in the photos) is private and not for the use of upstairs guests. If behaviour is bad and disrespectful to other guests and neighbours, then your children will be asked to behave and if this is not possible for them, then you will unfortunately be told they can not use the pool and gardens, leaving you with only the choice of the local beaches and your upstairs villa balcony.
As Owners, we love to entertain and have a good time with our family which will sometimes include music and conversation until late but we are always considerate. We also expect you to enjoy your holiday and have fun, but it is important that there is mutual respect and communication if neccessary.
We have never had any problems with our tenants and everyone has always had a wonderful time. We are sure that you will enjoy your stay as much as all our previous guests.

The Sicily region
Syracuse, the most ancient and magnificent of all Mediterranean cities, and former capital of the Magna Graecia, owes its unique charm to the succession of invading civilisations that have conquered it. It is a true melting pot of ancient Greek, Roman, Arabic, Norman, Byzantine and Spanish cultures and combines all their styles, tastes and scents.
In every corner of the city traces of these ancient civilizations can be seen. A visit to Syracuse is like a journey in time and through history. Added to which is the wonderful coastline and delightful surrounding countryside. You will have the chance to mix art, history, nature and fine food with our warm Sicilian hospitality. As a visitor to Siracuse, you should first see around the historic city, concentrating on the island of Ortigia, before visiting some of the many nearby sites: (including the baroque marvel of the city of Noto - a Unesco world heritage centre - the world-famous archaeological sites of Augusta and Palazzolo Acreide, the nature reserves at Vendicari and Cavagrande, the prehistoric site of Pantalica, etc.)
If you care to venture a little further, visit the beautiful city of Taormina (beloved of D H Lawrence and many other English writers and artists), the ceramics of Caltagirone, the villa at Casale di Piazza Armerina, the baroque splendours of Modica and Ragusa (where you should try the famous cuisine), the nightlife of Catania, the splendid landscape around Alcantara and, of course, the awe-inspiring heights and lave-flows of Mt Etna. Finally, the nearby coastline offers many wonderful opportunities for sea bathing in a warm and crystal-clear sea.
The beach of Fontane Bianche is a very famous beach with a sea that is very characteristic because of its shallow ground and its lukewarm water during the summer months.
The sea is so crystal clear and pure that you can even perceive the tiny fish that use to swim near the shore.
The beaches of Fontane Bianche are both free and private.
In the private beach sections you can rent chairs and umbrellas and there are several cafés, restaurants and services. The free sections of Fontane Bianche are quite spacious and easily accessible. You can also find here several cafés, restaurants and toilets.
You can also find beautiful cliffs in Fontane Bianche which are particularly suitable for those who like to protect their privacy. This is the ideal place for diving enthusiasts and for everyone who wants to spend a calm holiday.
Of course there are no shops or cafés or other in the isolated places.
Fontane Bianche which is 7 miles away from Syracuse, is a characteristic holiday destination with a diameter of ca. 2miles.
On the way you find little shops, like Grocery stores, butcher shops, an Agip gas station, tobacco shops, a newsagent and not to forget the (Cuban) café that is famous for the best ice-cream in all of Fontane Bianche and Syracuse.
The Plemmirio, nature reserve, which offers its guests the ideal place to admire many different fish-, starfish-, and sea urchin species.
On Sicily the holiday is guaranteed and in Fontane Bianche on the south coast of Sicily you find sun, a crystal clear sea and very fine and bright sand. Not to forget, the charming island Ortigia with a more than 6000 year old history and culture is situated in Syracuse.
