Enjoy the lightness of an Italian summer. A great place to do just that is Italy’s largest island – Sicily. It is said that the further south you go in Italy, the friendlier the people and the sweeter the desserts.
Why not see for yourself during a stay at Villa Baia Marina, which is located only 150 m from a lovely bathing bay at San Lorenzo/Marzamemi. The town borders nature reserve Oasi Vendicari, where you can go hiking and bird watching.
With their Mediterranean coloring and unobtrusive, but tasteful architecture the villa's two sea view aparments harmonize in a wonderful way with the picturesque landscape of southeastern Sicily. Their interior displays comfort in perfect design.
As one of Sicily’s most beautiful beaches with crystal clear sea water lies, so to speak, at your feet, you do not even need a car to get there. Whether the bathing bay just below the property is more or less sandy depends on the current.
Right above the bay, on his private property, landlord Pippo has 'created' for his guests a section by the sea shaded by sun sails. Each accommodation unit has got its own shaded spot with sun lounger and deck chairs.
Stores and restaurants are found at the picturesque fishing village of Marzamemi, 3 km off.
The fact that Pippo, the friendly owner, values his apartments is obvious inside as well as outside the apartments.
The villa offers WLAN and satellite reception as well as air conditioning with heating system. It houses two ground-floor holiday apartments, each of which has a private entrance and comes with a parking space, a section of garden and a roofed terrace.
The somewhat larger holiday apartment No. 1 includes a double bedroom with extra bed, a live-and-eat-in kitchen with sofa bed, SAT-TV and dining area and two bathrooms.
The adjoining holiday apartment No. 2 is somewhat smaller and includes a double bedroom with extra bed, a live-and-eat-in kitchen with sofa bed, SAT-TV and dining area and one bathroom.
The kitchenette of each apartment features gas stove, oven, refrigerator, coffee machine and water boiler.
The bathrooms are equipped with shower cabin, WC and hair dryer; a bidet is found in only one of the bathrooms of each apartment. Furthermore, there is a washing machine in the outdoor area of each holiday apartment.
Couples traveling together or larger families might consider booking both apartments (subject to availability).
When we visited the premises for the first time, shortly before construction works on the villa were about to end, Pippo told us that by ordering tall palm trees to be planted in the garden he had aimed at creating a special atmosphere right from the start.
When having a closer look at the pictures, an expert eye is sure to recognize that the classy tiles in Mutina design on the terraces and partly in the bathrooms provide for modern touches here and there.
Each apartment includes garden furniture, deck chairs, shade sail and outdoor shower (cold and warm water) in the fenced outdoor area facing faces the sea.
Furnishing of the holiday apartments includes, amongst others, WLAN, SAT-TV, air conditioning with heating system, outdoor shower, washing machine and hair dryer.
The owner keeps two bikes which guests can borrow upon request.
You can park your car in the parking space reserved for your apartment.
The bathing bay below Villa Baia Marina and its neighboring holiday accommodations is only about 150 m off. The long and gently sloping sandy beach of San Lorenzo is ca. 300 m off.
Above all during the summer months of July and August San Lorenzo is a popular bathing resort. The two lidi are, however, about 600 m from Villa Baia Marina, which means that you can spend relaxing holidays at the villa even during high season.
Marzamemi, a fishing village 3 km off, has been spruced up during the last few years, but has not lost its authentic charm. Enjoy an aperitif at one of seaside bars there before savoring local fish at one of the restaurants. To round off the evening, you might take a walk along the seaside promenade and delight in a „cannolo“ (pastry roll with sweet ricotta) for dessert.
Culture tip: 20 km off lies the Baroque town of Noto with its fascinating centro storico and fantastic Baroque buildings, such as cathedral San Nicolo and the town hall.
