We had a very relaxing time at this quiet and rustic little house. The kids loved the garden and it was a good break from TV or internet. It is a very simple house but has all the amenities you need. Beach is 5 minutes drive. Great location to explore the area including day trips to Syracuse and Noto. Giovanni (manager) was always around to help and provide advice/tips on what to do. You do need a car / vespa to get around though.

We had a great time in Sicily: the beach is not far and it's a great bathing spot, lovely places like Noto and Modica are easy to reach and definitely worth a visit! Unfortunately having a car is a must - otherwise you won't reach any supermarket and it would be too far to walk to the beach. The neighborhood can be quite loud as dogs are jelling the entire night and sometimes fields are getting burned which causes a very bad smell. For having a base to discover the south of the island the house is perfect though :) Thanks for having us!

This beautiful little house in the country was a great alternative holiday. We enjoyed being out in the quiet countryside. The area is beautiful. The beach is clean, free, and not crowded. It is necessary to have a car, but worth it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Roberta's house in Santa Maria del Focallo. The house is very comfortable, clean and functional, the perfect holiday-home beach house. The surroundings are quiet and very peaceful, and the nearby unspoiled beaches are fabulous. Roberta is a very attentive host, she paid particular attention to providing us with all comforts. A special thanks must go to Mr Giovanni, who was wonderful and extremely hospitable and helpful. We will return soon to her house, if only to sit under the wonderful veranda at night time!

We had a pleasant stay in this house in April 2016. Nothing was missing and we were hosted by Giovanni, very hepful. It is a lovely base to visit the southern part of Sicilia, such as the baroque cities (Noto, Ragusa, Scicli, Modica) or Syracusa. Of course the sea is very close with sandy beaches. Séjour agréable dans la maison de Roberta. en Avril 2016. Nous avons été bien accueilli par Giovanni, personne très serviable. Il s'agit d'une base bien située, d'accès assez facile, pour visiter les villes baroques (Noto, Ragusa, Modica, Scicli) et pas trop éloignée de Syracuse (3/4 h). La mer est toute proche avec des plages de sable.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you liked our house. wifi connection is a little "gift", you don't find it in the features because in the country is very difficult to have a good connection. you were a perfect guess. thank you !

Sicily has many things to offer. Nice beaches, beautifull nature and a lot of ancient italian culture. If you take a short drive you will find this all. You need a car to get around, because the house is on a guiet hill, away from shops and cities, but that's what we liked about it. Roberta's friend Giovanni is very friendly and has great service. We really liked it!

Vivo a Milano con la mia famiglia, amo la natura, l'arte, la cucina e la buona compagnia. Mi piace l'idea di condividere il mio piccolo paradiso, di mostrare come sia possibile trovare un luogo in cui natura, cultura e relax si possano godere anche senza bisogno di grandi risorse. Questa casa di vacanza, immersa nella campagna siciliana e vicinissima al mare, mi rappresenta totalmente.
