About this location
The Sicily region
Sicily - that beautiful island off the southern-most tip of Italy is one of the few places in Europe that genuinely can be called unspoilt! Its scenery has a natural and varied beauty that is truly breathtaking. Rugged, sometimes snow-capped mountains reaching for the sky are interspaced with rich meadows, adorned with wild flowers: during spring and autumn, spectacularly green and lush, yet during the sun-scorched summer, transformed into pastel shades of greens, yellows and browns. Citrus and olive groves stretch into the distance and abundant pine forests lend the air that unmistakeable Mediterranean aroma. Punctuated by the occasional farmhouse and Tuscan-like hilltop village the countryside is remarkably empty. The island has a spectacularly indented coastline, with sweeping bays and blood-red volcanic rocks plunging into the deep blue sea, and snow-capped Mount Etna providing a magnificent backdrop. At the crossroads of almost every Mediterranean civilisation, home to the richest cities in the Greek Empire, Sicily was conquered by Rome, the Moors, Normans, Spanish, French and finally the Italians. Their magnificent relics include temples, amphitheatres, churches, monasteries, villas and atmospheric old towns, with many being the most outstanding of their type in the world.
With an enviable climate, a fabulous cuisine plus some of the most accommodating and friendly people you will find anywhere, Sicily is an excellent destination to discover and you will be made welcome on this beautiful island.
Nature and history have combined to give Sicily its most striking feature: impressive monuments of the past set against backgrounds of astonishing natural beauty. Climb the hill to the 3rd century BC Greek amphitheater at Taormina and experience a setting where nature enhances art: on one side stretches the dramatic, jagged coastline of the azure blue Ionian Sea, on the other, snow capped Mt. Etna. The 12th century cathedral at Monreale, a masterpiece of Norman architecture famous for its dazzling mosaics, commands unsurpassed views down the Conca d'Oro Valley, with Palermo and its bay visible in the distance.
With its location in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily became a bridge between the civilizations of the East and West. Peoples from the southern Mediterranean, including the Phoenicians, were the earliest settlers, but the island's growth, prosperity and cultural development began with Greek colonization in the 8th century BC. The powerful city-states of Syracuse, Catania, Selinute and Agrigento competed with each other to construct the most spectacular temples.
The hauntingly beautiful Valley of the Temples, built parallel to the sea at Agrigento, are some of the best preserved outside of Greece. The Romans arrived in the 2nd century BC, followed by the Arabs, Normans, French, Spanish and finally the Bourbons. Churches, temples, gardens, palaces and theaters from these civilizations are scattered throughout the island. However, it was during the Arab domination in the 9th and 10th centuries when Sicily's influence in trade and culture expanded, while the Norman occupation in the 11th and 12th centuries was a major artistic influence, leaving behind exquisite churches and palaces of Arab-Byzantine style.
Sicily has a remarkably varied landscape, with a mountainous interior, hills and plateaus, and a wildly beautiful coastline of rocky promontories, sheer cliffs, fine sand beaches, tiny coves and clear waters. Off shore are groups of smaller islands, some of volcanic origin; Stromboli, off the northern coast, has an active volcano. Breathtaking vistas abound: the semi-tropical landscape of lemon groves and pine forests; miles of sparkling sea shore dotted by small fishing villages; and towering mountains framed by a brilliant blue sky. With its mild climate and volcanic enriched soil, Sicily is an important agricultural center, growing vegetables and citrus fruit, including the famous blood oranges, and producing olive oil and wine. Luxuriant gardens with exotic plants grace the major cities, including Palermo, the capital.
Sicilian cuisine is an adventure in history. Its cooking speaks of its complicated history of invasions and occupations as well as of the fresh flavors of the land and the bounty of the sea. There is cuscus (couscous) from Trapani, an Arab legacy, served with a fish stew. Pasta con le sarde, with fresh anchovies, is traditional. Bottarga, tuna roe that has been salted and pressed, tops pasta in the renowned spaghetti alla siracusana. Sfinciuni di San Vito, a stuffed focaccia, is not to be missed, nor is caponata, a sensuous dish of eggplant, celery and onions that are fried separately and cooked briefly in a sweet and sour sauce that includes tomatoes, raisins, pine nuts, vinegar, and a pinch of sugar.
Farsumagru, a meat roll filled with cheese, sausage and boiled eggs is one of the island's classic meat dishes, and piscispada alla ghiotta, an exuberant swordfish preparation, its most famous fish dish. Cassata, a sponge cake with ricotta, chocolate, candied fruits and pistachios, is the most beloved Sicilian dessert; ricotta-stuffed cannoli are known throughout the world. Cubbaita, a nougat with honey, almonds, and sesame seeds, speaks of Arab influence.
Some of Italy's best ice cream is made in Sicily, and little can rival the sweetness of its fruit. Sicily produces a number of great wines, most of them sweet: Marsala, Malvasia delle Lipari, and Moscato. Excellent table wines are made on the Regaleali estate; other outstanding ones are Etna, Alcamo, Corvo, Faro, and Ombra.
Noto is considered the "Capital of the Baroque," and is described as a lost paradise, a “treasure”, a gold-toned stone garden, a living book, the emblem of wealth in the Baroque age in Sicily.. It's impossible to think about a visit in Sicily without admiring its masterpieces, recently declared humanity heritage by UNESCO. A stay in Noto will allow you to visit the wild south-western side of Sicily and its incredible cultural and natural treasures.
You can enjoy the most beautiful beaches of the island, for example Eloro (ask people for directions if you want to find it, there are no markings!), Marchesa beach, or Cala Mosca inside the natural reserve of Vendicari. Spare your time also to visit the several baroque villages in the nearby, among which Modica, Ragusa Ibla, Scicli, besides Ortigia (the old Siracusa) and its Greek Theatre, Ispica Caves, Cava Grande del Cassibile, and many many others
Do not miss the famous and suggestive "Infiorata", a picturesque festival to welcome the Spring, which takes place every third Sunday of May, since 1980. Local artists work nightime to prepare colourful real flowers carpets all over the streets, every year with a different theme. The whole week is animated by concerts, exhibitions and festivals.
In the south - eastern corner of Sicily there is the province of Syracuse, one of the most appreciated areas where tourists can enjoy both the awe-inspiring heights and lave-flows of Mt Etna, and trendy villages like Taormina, Caltagirone and Piazza Armerina.
If you are an food lover, you shouldn't miss Sicilian food: fish, meat, sweets (mandorle, torroni, mustazzola, granite al limone) and wines (Moscato di Noto, Moscato di Siracusa, Eloro, Nero d'Avola).

"Idyllic stay near beautiful beach and stunning cities to explore nearby"
We flew to Sicily from Geneva and stayed at Villa Eloro for six nights in late October. The place was idyllic. The house was clean and fully equipped to accommodate an extended family of three adults … More

"Excellent vacation rental"
This was our first trip to Sicily and our first rental there. Ernesto, the owner lives downstairs from the apartment, and was absolutely unobtrusive during our stay. However he was a wealth of information about nearby attractions and restaurants. The apartment was immaculate and comfortable, and the outside patio/deck was delightful as a place to sit and eat, or just relax. Villa Eloro is in a very convenient location. A nice beach is very nearby, and the beautiful Baroque town of Noto as well as the treasures of Siracusa are within a short driving distance.

We really spent a great week at Villa Eloro with my husband and 2 years-old son, combining visits (Noto, Syracuse) and sea. Everything you need is available at the villa, which is few meters away from a nice (but busy) beach. We were happy to finally find the sun and heat (that we were desperatly looking for all summer), but we still enjoyed the air-cond in the villa :) Ernesto is a very nice and discrete person, and we were happy to have a guest every morning and evening (Whisky, one of Ernesto's dogs), which my son is now really missing...

"Wonderful week, it's like to stay at home."
We stayed in Villa Eloro (me, my wife and two children) the first week of August. Very nice house (even better than expected), the rooms were comfortable and clean, the place very silent with a huge and magnificent outside area for relax and dinners. Ernesto was very nice and precious with his consulting and info. Hope to return very soon

"Lovely apartment in great location"
This was our second visit to Villa Eloro and it was just as good. The location is great, a few minutes from two beaches and a ten minute drive from Noto. Earnest is friendly and welcoming, offering advice about places to visit and good places to eat. The terrace is lovely a relaxing and the apartment comfortable and spacious with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.

"Ernesto is the perfect host"
Are we stayed at this filler for six days. It was really hard to fault. Everything was spotless when we arrived. The terraced area was really big and well laid out. The garden area was very well looked after with a super barbecue. We were within a very short distance of a perfectly good beach. There were better more secluded beaches around as well. Ernesto was fantastic. He is really friendly, but very discreet and helped when ever he could. He sent really helpful emails prior to our stay. He got a load of groceries to welcome us (fruit water coffee bread biscuits cheese) and wouldn't let us pay for them. His two dogs were great company too. The older one doesn't get about a great deal, but Whiskey the younger of the two was really friendly and great to have around. Ernesto would've been quite happy to have kept the dogs away if we'd wanted but we really enjoyed having them around. A great place with a superlative host.

"Perfect stay for a small family"
We really enjoyed our stay at the house. We stayed for a week with our son, who is 1,5 years old. He enjoyed the stay very much too. It was great to wake up and go out on the terrace to have a coffee in the morning sun, yummy stuff for lunch and a vino in the evening. The house was very clean, well equipped with all stuff we needed and good working wifi. We didn't miss anything.
Lido di Noto is a small beach town and since we stayed there out of season it was very quite. Except for a few barking dogs in the street, which didn't bother us though. We enjoyed the peace en quite. And there is a lot of stuff to do nearby. You will need a car for that.
Ernesto, the host who is living on the ground floor, is very very nice, super friendly, helpful and speaks good english.
If we go back to Sicily again we would definitely stay at Ernesto's house again.
