ulivo-detail380Without Sicily, Italy creates no image in the soul: here is the key to everything.

J.W. von Goethe, 1787, Italian Journey

Sicilia

The island of Sicily has always been known as a crossroads of peoples and cultures ulivo-siciliamapdue to its strategic location in the center of the Mediterranean. This has created an extraordinary cultural richness and variety that along with the original characteristics of the territory and its inhabitants makes it a unique place. Tourist destination by excellence, in the eighteenth century, Sicily became part of the Grand Tour attracting young aristocrats from northern Europe. Divided into nine provinces, with Palermo as the capital, Sicily shows a great diversity of landscapes: from the high interior mountains, the Madonie and the Nebrodi reaching nearly 2000 m high and the more modest Erei and Iblei; the Aeolian, Egadi and Pelagian Islands; volcanoes like Etna, Stromboli and Vulcano; 1500 km of coastline.

Siracusa

The largest metropolis of the ancient Greek world, Siracusa preserves the vestiges of its Greek and Roman past in all its territory: ancient theaters, temples, sculptures. From the bustling city life to the tranquility of its countryside, Syracuse is able to satisfy even the most demanding traveler thanks to its wide cultural and gastronomic offer.

Our houses are located in the Old Town of Syracuse (Ortigia Suites and Antico Mercato) and, following down the coast, just above Avola (Villa Il Mandorlo)

Villa Il Mandorlo

Avola (Siracusa)

The House

Villa Il Mandorlo is located in Contrada Gallina, 4 km North of Avola, on the edge of the Natural Reserve Cavagrande del Cassibile, in the stretch where the homonymous river reaches the sea. From its elevated position compared to the other houses in the village, it enjoys a beautiful view of the sea and a pleasant breeze even on the hottest summer days.

Located in an area where once there were almond, olive and carob trees, Villa Il Mandorlo is now surrounded by a beautiful garden full of Mediterranean plants, cactus, succulents and the original olive trees.

The villa consists of 3 apartments: one on the ground floor – Hibiscus- two on the first floor –Palma and Cactus- and a cottage – La Casetta degli Ulivi- that has its own small private garden.

The beautiful sandy beach is a 5 minute walk from the house. It is a public beach, frequented mainly by locals, suitable for younger children, and renowned for its crystal clear waters. From the beach you can take a pleasant walk along the coast to the north on a path surrounded by small palms and low shrubs; from here you can reach the beautiful beach of the Marchesa di Cassibile, where the river ends its course.
