About the villa
Casa Calogero is a beautiful property with private pool situated in the south-east of Sicily, halfway between the city of Syracuse and the azure waters of the Plemmirio reserve. Recently renovated, this old dwelling is surrounded by a wonderful garden with citrus trees and offers a private pool and a spacious terrace equipped for al fresco dining. Set all on one level, the elegant rooms of the villa are furnished with classic décor. The large living/dining room has panoramic windows with tranquil garden views, and this leads through to a country-style kitchen with double doors opening out to the gardens and an outdoor dining area.
There is a master double bedroom with dressing area and en suite shower room, two further double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, along with a bathroom and shower room. The private swimming pool is surrounded by lovely gardens, and provides a peaceful setting for those wanting to soak up the Italian sun. The villa’s excellent location is close to the centre of historic Siracusa, to the Plemmirio marine protected area, to the sandy beaches of Arenella and Fontane Bianche and to the nature reserves of River Ciane and Cavagrande del Cassibile.

As one of the quieter destinations on the diverse island of Sicily, the south is home to some of the top, one and two Michellin star restaurants in the country. And it’s no wonder, with the abundance beautiful local produce available. As in all parts of Sicily, there is a contrast in landscape from the marshland of Vendicari to the rebuilt towns of Noto and Ragusa. Siracusa has a tradition in making puppets - buy one as a souvenir or visit the puppet theatre for some light entertainment. Or try out the range of restaurants, bars and tours for a relaxing evening with friends.
