We recently returned from a week’s stay at this delightful hotel, where Paulo welcomes guests with real warmth and charm. It lives up to all its pictures and descriptions and the nearby beach, though busy at the weekend was perfect with good facilities, beach café and toilets etc. Our room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the beautiful garden and was always well maintained by the friendly staff. The foyer area is cool and decorated with lovely quirky touches. Breakfast served in the dining area which is open to the garden was plentiful in the continental manner (you can’t possibly eat ‘full English’ in this heat anyway!!). Dinner was preceded with an aperitif and the dinner served by candlelight in the garden was excellent, all typical Sicilian food, explained fully to us, and served with friendly efficiency.
At the end of our 12 day Sicilian holiday we called in again to Fontana Bianche after having spent a few days of exploring Ortigia and Syracuse in very hot weather. It was refreshing to spend a last day at the beach, and then we called into the Villa Mare to be greeted with pleasure by Paulo who promptly made us some coffee and sat down for a chat. We would certainly love to come back here again and can fully recommend it for a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings.More
