In a quiet rural area about 45 minutes from Catania airport, Villa Franca is close to the beautiful city of Siracusa, and well placed to explore the South East of Sicily, in an island packed with beautiful and fascinating archaeological remains, beautiful towns, villages and countryside and monumental baroque architecture and a cathedral seemingly in every other town, the property is well placed to explore Ragusa, Noto, Modica and Palazzola Acreide, after a comfortable drive if you have use of a car. Villa Franca is not too far from the East and South coasts. If you want to drive a little further the famous sights of Agrigento & Taoramina are around 2 1/2 to 3 hours drive away.
There are only two apartments (which are pristine) at Villa Franca so the grounds and the lovely and relatively large pool area are never crowded, indeed on many occasions there was only my wife and me there. The owners keep everything fastidiously clean, and the apartments are modern and well equipped, to cap it all the owners, who live on site in the main house, and their family are really nice people. Hopefully you can tell that we enjoyed every moment of our stay. We are fairly well traveled and have been to some wonderful places, but rarely return to the same place, because there is a big old world out there to see, this place could be the exception, I would definitely go there again for another wonderful holiday.
