Fine white sand and crystal clear sea – the Sicilian seaside resort of San Lorenzo near Marzamemi is well-known for its clean, turquoise colored water. This coastel section need not shun comparison with the dream beaches of the Caribbean.
Ask the inhabitants of Sicily’s southeast about the most beautiful beach in the surrounding area and they are sure to vote unanimously for San Lorenzo. Comprehensive service ranging from parasol to gelato, which you can expect at the beach from June to September, is only one of the reasons why this is so.
Holiday apartment Casa Pippo, named for its friendly owner, is one of four units and located on the upper floor of the house. The latter is found in one of San Lorenzo's many side roads which end, so to speak, at the sea.
The accommodation is about 200 m from the sea. Where the road ends, there is a shallow access into the sea across rocks. A ca. 300 m walk further on along the seaside takes you to that beautiful sandy beach Sicilians are so enthusiastic about.
When staying at Casa Pippo, you find the sea to be omnipresent. Depending on the weather, the sea lies shimmering in various and different shades of blue, which you can see and watch not only from the terrace, but also from the combined kitchen-living-dining room and the bedroom.
As Casa Pippo is located somewhat apart, you are sure to enjoy relaxing holidays in the southeast of Sicily - even if you are there during the summer months of July and August when San Lorenzo is full of bustling activity.
The apartment's tasteful live-and-eat-in kitchen includes oven, gas stove, refrigerator with freezer compartment, TV and sofa bed as well as air conditioning with heating system.
The bedroom is furnished, amongst others, with a double bed and an additional bed for one person as well as a ceiling fan.
The bathroom has modern tiling and is equipped with shower cabin, hair dryer, WC and bidet.
On the partly roofed terrace you find dining furniture, comfortable basketwork chairs and sunbeds at your disposal.
The outdoor shower, a washing machine and a grill are for shared use.
Furnishing of Casa Pippo includes free Wi-Fi and fly screens in the bedroom window.
There is a reserved parking space for your car in front of the house.
The most popular lido of San Lorenzo, Agua Beach, is ca. 800 m from Casa Pippo. The lido is our tip should you wish for various kinds of service when spending a day at the beach.
Those who wish for a little less might find a shady spot under sun sails by the sea, on the private property of owner Pippo, appealing. Small, easy to carry beach chairs are provided for at your apartment.
Restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, boutiques, a pharmacy and shops are found at Marzamemi, 3 km off. Outside high season, shopping is best done at Pachino, 6 km off (e.g. at supermarket CONAD).
Those who love nature should stop at nature reserve Oasi Vendicari, which borders on the holiday resort of San Lorenzo.
While hiking there, you get to know Sicily’s multifaceted vegetation and, in spring and autumn, you can watch the migratory birds which stop there for a rest. From San Lorenzo you can walk to Oasi Vendicari, you need only keep on walking along the beach/shore.
At the Oasi, during the summer months, you find fantastic beaches, backed up by the historic setting of the remains of Noto's "tonnara", and picturesque bathing bays such as Cala Mosche. The places in the nature reserve where you can go swimming can be reached only on foot. In general, an entrance fee falls due, which supports the work of the local conservationists.
Noto - it takes you only 20 minutes by car to get to the fascinating town with its grand Baroque buildings and numerous churches. The highlight at Noto surely is the cathedral of San Nicolò. The sight of this majestic building simply takes your breath away.
