We had 1 week vacation and enjoyed this house very much especially taking in account that we were the only one family in huge house. Google directions to this house are correct, even last left turn looks scary. Driving in Sicily looks scary in the beginning , but you just need to get accustom to Sicilian way to drive... Sicilian peope are friendly.
Property address VIA DEL FARO MASSOLIVERI 27, Syracuse actually matches to multiple houses . I really recommend to call owner prior to you arrive - we entered wrong house, gate to our house was closed when we arrived.
House's manager arrived only 1hour after we called , but we were awarded with bottle of great Sicilian red wine, cheese and cookies.
Our apartment has big master bedroom, kitchen with refrigerator and freezer, gas stove and various kitchen utencils. But there is not microwave and morever kitchen doesn't have any electric socket...
Sicilians drink espresso coffee and our house has coffee maker that makes only espresso! So if you get accustom to drink big cup of coffee in the morning , you'll need to figure out how to convert espresso to regular cofee, it takes extra time.
the second bedroom is actually small loft near roof where you have good bed and some shelves.
all rooms have air conditioning that worked very well - it is critical for summer time in Sicily.
Living room is small with small sofa and there is not any table. It is big inconvience , taking in accound that you can't use big table on the balcony after 4pm because it is hot and mosquito and flies are ready to bite you.
Small TV is useless if you don't speak Italian.
This property has it's own gate to a beach that is connected with public beach. Neighbor property was collapsed, so our beach was covered with junk. Public beach is very good but without any shadow, so you would better to return ( 2 min walk) to your house after swimming. Water in the middle of June was 20-21 °C , not warm enough for long snorkeling.
There are several restaurants in 3km distance but I would recommend Villa Gaiangos - we enjoyed dinner there twice. it is just 2min drive from Altromonto house. You can come there for dinner even around 10pm...
I recommend to use Lidl store if you decide to buy grocery that is just15min drive this house.
