“Lovely villa in a slightly out-of-the-way location”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a spacious villa with lots of character. The outside space in particular is lovely - the photos don't really do it justice. Lots of different tables and chairs all round the property depending on whether you fancy sun or shade. Fresh food was provided for our arrival - bread, ham, melon - which we really appreciated and there were also staples like coffee and sugar. So nice compared with some rentals where there isn't even salt! A few minor niggles - no kettle in the kitchen so water always had to be boiled on the hob and the boiler was a little temperamental and needed restarting every so often to provide hot water.

The property is well located between Syracuse and Noto but we found the area itself a little lacking in amenities. Fine if you want seclusion but access to any shop or restaurant needed the car. For a good supermarket you need to travel to Syracuse - 10 to 15 minutes away. The nearby access points to the coast lead to attractive rocky coastline for a brief visit but holidaying with a small child as we were they weren't suitable for longer visits.

“Superb villa, great welcome”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in May 2013

Villa Plemmirio is located about 15 minutes drive south from Syracuse, the port city originally founded by ancient Greeks and the home of Archimedes. Piazza Duomo at the centre of Syracuse is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful squares in Italy, and the cathedral there still incorporates some of the columns of the original temple of Athena. Plemmirio is on the peninsular of Capo Murro di Porco. The sea around about the peninsular is a marine protected area, ideal for snorkeling or diving in the summer.

The Villa is in a quiet cul-de-sac, overlooking the sea, with three large pine trees framing the view. At the back, there is a large garden planted with lemon and olives. It is bounded by a sheer wall cut into the hillside with a cascade of bougainvillea flowers on one side.

When you enter the Villa you find yourself in a large living/dining room panelled in wood; the walls are decorated with original paintings and other small ornaments; the furnishings are solid but comfortable. You immediately understand that you are guests in a family home. The living/dining area has double doors leading to a verandah at the front. To the left is a small but well equipped kitchen with a gas stove and oven. To the right, a corridor leads off to two bedrooms (one twin and one double) and a bathroom with toilet, bidet and shower. Each of the bedrooms has double doors leading out into the garden. The upstairs part of the Villa is closed.

Mrs Cannata, the owner, thoughtfully prepared a delicious parmegiano and an apricot tart for our arrival. She visited twice during our two week stay to pick up mail but always brought something with her for us, and when we left gave us some small gifts, which made us feel that we were more like her personal friends than paying guests. Her kindness and hospitality left an unforgettable impression on us, and made us very keen to come back in future years if the villa is available.

Vielen Dank für die Bewertung, aber leider, dass die Kommentare unvollständig und falsch sind.
Das hydraulische Problem wurde in weniger als 1 Stunde gelöst und hängt offensichtlich nicht von uns ab. Die Möbel sind im Vintage-Stil und genau wie auf den Fotos gezeigt.
Es gibt einige Katzen, die zwischen den Villen in der Gegend herumlaufen und von denen wir wissen, dass niemand tot ist.
Schließlich, tut mir leid, dass das kleine Geschenk, das wir unseren Gästen hinterlassen möchten, in asa geblieben ist...
