The terrace nearest the sea has a stunning infinity pool that seems to blend with the blue of the reserve’s unspoilt sea. A handy staircase leads directly from this terrace to the rocky coastline below with a little ladder fixed to the rocks makes for easy access to the water. Snorkelling is fantastic here, while those who wish to dive will find archeological remains, as well as natural beauty. The Plemmirio reserve is less than 15 minutes drive to the historic city of Siracusa, which means whoever spends a holiday in the villa can not only enjoy unspoilt nature but also the art, culture and lifestyle of the city, and its historic centre, Ortigia.

We like

Getting up in the morning for a swim in the sea — the water really is crystal clear! Watching the sun set behind Cava Grande — from the terrace or from the Jacuzzi. Long lazy dinners on the terrace. Popping into Siracusa to wander around the island of Ortigia, perhaps stopping for a touch of boutique shopping or an aperitivo. Walks along the coastal footpaths of the Plemmirio reserve.

We think

This is the ideal villa for either a family or friends, as its pool, access to the sea, the garden and proximity to Siracusa mean that it can meet the different needs and interests of the various members of the group. The penthouse on the upper floor is self contained, with its own kitchen — ideal for families travelling with grandparents who want a bit of peace and independence.

Reality is even better!!

June 27, 2016
First of all, pictures did not represent the reality – reality is even better!! from the responsiveness of the agent (Paola was extremely kind, always available), to the whole set up, it was a memorable vacation.
The house has everything you may need…and even more, and everything was working perfectly ok. Location, decoration, cleanliness, arrangements, welcome gift, people warmth…everything was MORE than excellent!!!

Stunning view

August 3, 2014

The Prora del Plemmirio villa has a stunningly beautiful setting and we loved waking up to that view every morning! The property was new, very clean and had everything one would need. We didn’t see the top floor but I think the ceilings would be lower. Our part had high ceilings (11 feet maybe) and white walls with cheerful blue shutters. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped, also had washer/dryer combo machine. Paola had left a basket of food and water, eggs, milk, coffee, etc so that was nice. The main room and dining room are smallish but they open onto the terrace overlooking the sea so they don’t seem confined. The bedrooms (3) are smallish but adequate (two king rooms and one twin room). The beds and bedding were good. Very nice closet outfitting in all rooms so you could completely unpack and have space for everything. The bathrooms were very clean, well outfitted with storage space, and modern. Smallish but fine size-wise by European standards. We always had hot water and shower pressure was great and all the air conditioning was very strong and very cool. Very secure property with a big gate, wall, and lots of dead bolts and decorative bars on all windows and doors. It is all very attractively done. The villa itself is on a reserve so the water is really pristine. You can’t spearfish or jet ski from there and boats have to be a certain distance from the shore but that was ok. The landscaping is well done and very manicured which suits the Mediterranean style of the house. The patio immediately outside has a dining table and conversation area with sofa, chairs etc so it’s set up well for outdoor living looking onto the pool and the sea. A great feature is that in the living room/dining room and kitchen there are french doors so the entire house can be opened. It is really very bright and airy all day long. The pool is smallish but very pretty and perfect for cooling off and playing but not lap swimming. The large deck is immaculate and there is a pretty outdoor loggia and another outdoor dining area on other sides of the house. The parking is in the driveway which is within the walled property so it is very safe too. You could easily have two cars under the covered area. The walk down to the sea is right off the pool deck and is partially man made steps and then volcanic rock. It is not hard to do but it is a bit long – good exercise! As I said, the sea off the house is crystal clear and a beautiful azure blue. It is completely rocky (which is what we were looking for) – no sand here, but the cliff jumping was fun. All in all, I think it is a very nice, clean villa which gives the feeling of being extremely well cared for. It is not “elegant” but rather more casual Mediterranean with a pretty Sicilian feel and very in touch with the sea. By the way, Paola was very sweet and very helpful. An asset to the property. Malta was interesting. Chris was good to deal with. Our guide was very knowlegeable and friendly but we would have liked to have had a bit more time there. I’m glad we saw it but probably wouldn’t rush back.
