The villa is situated about 10 minutes drive from Syracuse, a car is preferable but taxis are easily available. The bedrooms are spacious with excellent air conditioning and the kitchen is fully equipped. However, you will be spoilt for choice with all of the restaurants in Ortigia. The pool was very clean and private, with scenic views, one of the great things about our holiday. Giordano and his family were very welcoming and helpful, and even baked us a traditional sicilian cake. A good day out is going by train to Taormina, and the beaches are also brilliant.

“Superb and welcoming villa just outside Syracuse”

We had a wonderful week at this superb secluded villa, with its own private pool just outside Syracuse. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful - they presented us with bowls of fruit and a range of groceries on our arrival and even bought an electric coffee machine when we explained that we preferred American, rather than Italian, style coffee!
Villa Dante is in an excellent location for exploring other parts of the Sicily too. We ventured out to Taormina, Agrigento, and even the Aeolian Islands, as well as Syracuse itself! Thoroughly and unreservedly recommended.

Villa Dante was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped. The pool and pool area was lovely.
The owners are a incredibly friendly and generous, we arrived late in the evening after getting lost in Catania having been unable to buy any food. After being shown the villa there was a knock on the door, Giordano and his mother were there with a plate of pizza and a bowl of fruit!
There is plenty to see in Syracuse and the surrounding area, Etna was fine for day trip although we stayed overnight in Agrigento to see Valley of the Temples.
A fantastic holiday!!
