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).

"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.

"A good choice"

The villa was comfortable, clean and well equipped .Ernesto, the owner, had thought about
what his guests might need during their stay. He greeted us on our arrival and was friendly but not intrusive. The balcony area is perfect for breakfast and is a great place to relax in the evening. The villa is well situated for exploring the area and there is a lovely beach very close-by.

"Clean, comfortable and all facilities"

A spacious, clean and comfortable villa on the first floor above the friendly owner's property, so any problems (which there weren't) could be easily resolved.
Living room was big, kitchen big enough to cook, great balcony with covered area for eating outside, bedrooms roomy enough with good storage facilities, and bathroom clean. Maybe the shower area might have been larger, but this is a very minor issue - it was perfectly usable. One bedroom was between the bathroom and kitchen so access to kitchen was through living room and out on to balcony if one didn't want to go through that bedroom. This did not present a problem to us. Plenty was provided - all cooking equipment, towels, bedding, coat hangers, etc., but didn't find the hair dryer (if we had asked I'm sure one would have appeared but we'd brought one anyway). Locking front gates ensured safety and the location was close to a number of beaches, one of which was very beautiful.
Overall, the villa was comfortable, trouble-free, and very pleasant.

"The villa was extremely comfortable and clean."

We stayed at the end of July with our 10 year old son. There was plenty of room for everyone to relax. The wi-fi and air conditioning made the villa even more enjoyable. Ernesto, the owner, was a true gentleman who was there to help if needed but otherwise respected our privacy. The garden is lovely and my son adored Whiskey the dog who was very gentle. This was the best villa we have rented so far and I would highly recommend it.
The villa was better than it had seemed from the photos on the internet. The outdoor seating area is very large and comfortable. Everything is very clean and in very good condition.
