This holiday home is situated in the middle of a huge lovely garden with lemon trees, ideal for children, who will also like the farm yard animals behind the fence (horse, donkeys, goats, chickens, turkeys). The hospitable owner of the house, Gioacchino, kindly provided us with fruit from the garden and we could have daily fresh eggs from the hens. The garden is shared with the adjacent holiday home, but the garden is large and there is a considerable distance between the houses and the trees in between provide privacy.
The house is not particularly large, but it is functional and it has a nice terrace. It was nice to have Wifi, but most of the time the speed was only sufficient for e-mail and not so much for web browsing.
The location is great: the warm Mediterranean sea is only a 500 m stroll away and a 15 minute drive to the pleasant town of Noto with its baroque Duomo restored after the 1990 collapse. The highway is close by, and it's s relatively short drive to magnificent Syracuse or the hilled cities with baroque churches of Ragusa and Modica or, if you venture further afield, the Pantalica Necropolis or Mount Etna. The coastline south of Syracuse makes for agreeable swimming.
Perfect, excellent, great!!!

I booked this villa in may for coming in august,Gioacchino - very hospitable and caring owner of the villa,during the preparation for the trip quickly answered all the questions on a mail,phone,sms...He sent quickly all documents with payment on my mail.If necessary, he provides a voucher for a visa.We stayed here for a week in august 10-17,Gioacchino helped in all aspects (search for bancomats,taxi, shops...).The villa is very spacious,we had 4 adults and three children - the place sufficed all. Furniture and equipment are new and modern.There are washing machine,dishwasher,boiler for water heating (hot water round the clock).There are everything for cooking. The beds are very comfortable.Considering an august heat in vila`s territory always it`s fresh and pleasant,thanks to the abundance of greenery and trees that are watered automatically at night.Everywhere is green lawn.At the villa there is a paddock with two donkeys,horse,goat,which can feed and touch.The children were delighted - always overfeeded animals.Great advantage of this villa is that the kids are always outside and busy with their own affairs (with animals),so parents & children relax fully equally.Absolutely no insects, so in the evening you can always enjoy your vacation in hammock or on sofa on the terrace.The air is very fragrant thanks to the lemon garden.Gioacchino never came empty - handed is always grapes,apples... His wine and olive oil production is great,we bought a few bottles for home. Gioacchino also produces excellent olive oil soap. Sea very close it`s about 300m on a straight road.The sea is clean and very warm.It`s impossible to describe here all positive emotions from visit this villa.This is the best option for holiday with children.Many thanks once again to Gioacchino for an excellent vacation!!!

Wonderful villa in the lemon grove
Left on 08/15/2013 for a stay in April 2012 | Kate
We had a fantastic stay here. Nice simple villa, every thing we needed, with fresh daily lemons and oranges from the grove and eggs from the hens. Our 2 year old loved all the farm animals. We walked to the little store each day for our fresh bread, and down to the sea-side for coffees or beer. Giacino was a helpful and friendly host.Location close to visit nearby villages but local transport almost impossible, we thought we could get by without a car for a week, but definitely not.
Nice holiday, as we expected.

Beautiful structure conforms perfectly to what is proposed in the ad. One flaw the proximity of animals on the estate and adjacent areas due to the presence of annoying flies (must obtain to Fly at home or on the patio). Read more
The lush garden and lemon trees together with farm animals (a horse, two donkeys, 2 goats) are the strong point of the house. All children hosted like to give them something to eat and have a great time watching them free to run in open spaces. The animals are housed in an enclosed area away from the house. Any of my guests so far has noticed the presence of many flies. However, the flies, outdoors, in natural surroundings, in the countryside, in some periods of the year are common, with animals or not. If you do not like to live in a natural environment, a small paradise near the sea, you can always choose an apartment in the city, a few meters from the sea! I have one!
Wonderful Noto Vacation home

2 adults and 2 kids enjoyed a lovely week staying in this villa. Surrounded by lemon orchard, farm animals, and sunny skies. Sandy beach was a short walk. The beautiful city of Noto is approx. 20 minutes by car. A good location to explore south eastern Scicily. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly.

The location is very quiet. For families with children is just excellent. We were without a car and very sorry about this. The nearest supermarket products in 7 km. Sea is very clean. People on the beach a little. Russian people are not met, mainly Germans. The owner is very welcoming.

Ein super Urlaub!
Left on 06/14/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | Die Rheinländer
Schönes Haus, alles neue Möbel, perfekt ausgestattet: Von der Hängematte bis zur Wärmeflasche, Sonnenliegen, Strandstühle, Sonnenschirm, Strandspielzeug und Luftmatratze! Die Tiere lieb und froh über die begeisterten Kinder, die ihnen täglich Möhren brachten und wir froh über frische Eier (einmal sogar noch warm!), Zitronen, köstliche Orangen, Aprikosen und Maulbeeren.
Der Besitzer ein ausgesprochen freundlicher und zurückhaltender Mensch, der lautere arbeiten, die in dem wunderschönen Garten nötig waren, nur während unserer abwesenheit ausgeübt hat!
Der einzige Störenfried: Ameisen! Die kriechen durch das Mauerwerk und müssen immer wieder mit Gift im Zaum gehalten werden - aber das wirkt dann auch!
Zum Schluss: Gute Lage für tolle ausflüge (unsere Kinder 4 und 6) haben alles prima mitgemacht und eine schöne Strandbucht ist fußläufig zu erreichen (es sei denn, man will die ganze Strandausstattung von Sig. Trapani mitnehmen ;-))

Very beautiful house und garden

We stayed 6 weeks in October/November with our family ( 2 kids, 4 years, 1 year) at the villa lemon garden. It was a very good time. The house is situated in a big lemon and orange garden. There are also a lot of other tropical fruit trees like banana trees and kaki trees. For the kids you will find some animals ( donkey, goats, cats, chicken) in the garden, every day you can get fresh eggs and the kids can feed and play with the animals. The house is very nice, inside you will find everything you need. There is another house at the ground ( 50 m away), a nice option to stay with more people. If you need something Mr. Trapani will get it for you. He is very nice and friendly and speaks english and other languages so you can ask him any time. The sandy beach is about 5 min walk and nice to swim ( until November), by car there are other beautiful beaches nearby. There are a lot of cultural highlights in the area, we loved syrakusa most ( 30 min by car). In the village there is a small supermarket - they have everything you need even fresh fruits and bread.

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine dans cette maison bien équipé au milieu des arbres fruitiers et des animaux notamment les chats sauvages pour le plus grand bonheur de notre petite fille.Le jardin est très agréable et la maison est située à deux pas d'une plage. J'ajouterai que nous avons apprécié le propriétaire discret et très sympa.
