    “Many large supermarkets nearby (about 2 km from Quartier at the big roundabout). In the center of Avola on nice main square good restaurant (open 20 clock), otherwise - at least in season- rather dürfiges range of good eateries in town, but plenty of eateries in nearby Noto. Car therefore absolutely necessary.”

    “Avola is only dominated by tourism seaside. Otherwise Avola is a pleasant town in which it can endure well. There are some supermarkets where you can good and cheap shopping. Restaurants and pizzerias are in the city center and the sea. There you can eat cheap and good.
    The beaches are clean and good for kids. Other beautiful beaches are easy to reach in few minutes by car to the south as well as in the north.
    Avola is a perfect base for touring the south-eastern part of Sicily. We enjoyed the mixture of cultural excursions (Noto, Siracusa, Mount Etna, ...) and beach life very.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Avola

Avola is a Sicilian far-southern seaside town that looks towards the south-east coast of Sicily in the Noto Gulf. Avola, a town of sun, of sea and arts, is attractive for its several civilian (the Palazzo Ducale, thecity hall, the town theater, etc.) and religious (the Sant’AntonioAbate’s church, the Sant’Antonio ...

di Padova’s church and the sumptuousChiesa Madre) buildings. In the early twentieth century decades some art nouveau detached houses and palaces had been built and theystill keep on giving further prestige to the town center. Avola is also a town of culture and good wine (the famous Nero d’Avola wine is so named after Avola) and food.

In the Avola’s area there is a piece of earthly paradise, a naturalistic, historical and archeological heritage with an immensurable value: it’s called theCava Grande del fiume di Cassibile. It’s a valley (almost a canyon), where you can contemplatenatural wonders as: the vegetation (planes, willows, oleanders, ivies, ferns, etc.), the fauna (dragon-flies, colorful butterflies, hedgehogs, foxes, blackcaps, cuckoos, kestrels, etc.), the geomorphological (themarmittedeigiganti, the erosion showers, the wonderful laghettiand the marie) and archeological (the Byzantine village, the Cassibile’s necropolis and the Grottadeibriganti) features.

Avola can be considered a good start point for an holiday trip:
• tours of the surrounding towns: Noto (also called The Stone Garden, U.N.E.S.C.O.’s heritage, at less than 8 km), Syracuse (just 24 km in 20 minutes and one can reach the chief town where the beauties,most of all left by the ancient Greeks, undisputed reign; just for istance: the Greek Theater, the Orecchio di Dionigi, the FonteAretusa), or other towns like Palazzolo, Modica and Ragusa;
• tours of places with extraordinary landscape beauty (Vendicari, CalaMosche, Marzamemi, the Marchesa di Cassibile beach, Pantalica).

Just be inspired by the huge offer and look for your dream holiday home for your next vacation on Sicily.

Typical Sicily: Fuming volcanoes and the blue sea

In order to discover the diversity of Sicily you can rent a car and go on discovery tour by yourself or alternatively opt for a coach trip with tour guide. The volcano Mount Etna in the north of Sicily is with its frequent small eruptions Europe’s highest and most active volcano as well as the island’s most renowned sight. Furthermore it can even be ascended with experienced guides. An experience no holiday maker on Sicily should miss. Next to Mount Etna also Mount Stromboli carries its own fascination. The volcano is situated on the small same named island which is part of the Aeolian Islands and is permanently active. In irregular but short intervals there are smaller eruptions which offer a quite spectacular and breathtaking sight especially at dusk.

You can discover the sea not only from Sicily’s beaches relaxed during a great beach vacation but also in an active way on boat trips or diving. Off Sicily there are still some larger coral reefs and a large variety of fish that are at home in their original underwater habitat.

Discover Sicily's towns from a holiday home

On Sicily one can discover many lovely cities and small villages. Always worth a trip is the city Taormina, which can proudly look back on many famous visitors. Oscar Wilde, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant are just few of those who treasured the charm of this city with its many typical Sicilian restaurants and shopping options. The Villa del Casale, UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, with its beautiful mosaics and other impressive Roman ruins are popular cultural tourist attractions. Also worth a visit is the city Palermo with its cathedral and pretty squares and parks as well as the famous catacombs of the Capuchin monastery. Further interesting cities on Sicily with many tourist attractions include Catania, Messina, Ragusa, Trapani, Agrigento and Syrakus.

Sicily's culinary specialities

Sicily’s cuisine is as diverse as the island itself. The history of Sicily’s ice cream dates back to the Roman Age. According to tradition it was invented at the foot of Mount Etna when sweet beverages that came from Arabia to the island were mixed with the ice of the volcano’s peak. The result was a sweet delicacy. Respectively the range of ice cream creations which can be enjoyed in the hot summer climate of the island is delicious and diverse.

Also Sicilian pastries are known to be delicious. Great wines are grown on Sicily, as well as figs, tangerines, mulberries, peaches, apricots, melons and many more which can be bought fresh at the regional markets.

Enjoying the Mediterranean climate

The climate on Sicily is primarily mild and sunny. During winter the temperature seldom drops below zero degrees. The most popular tourist season is due to the often very hot and dry summer the springtime, especially April and May, and the late summer between September and the beginning of November. Usually the temperatures in the heartland are lower as the regions are at a higher altitude than the coastal areas.  

By plane to Sicily

You either travel by plane or with your car to your holiday home vacation on Sicily. International airports with regular flights are available to Palermo, Catania and Trapani. Whilst on the island it is recommended to hire a car in order to reach the holiday home easily and to explore the region. Alternatively most of the larger holiday resorts – especially those close to the sea – are usually quite well connected to public transport.

Journey with the car and ferry to to the holiday apartment on Sicily

Those who want to travel with their own car can either drive down to southern Italy in two to three days or shorten the journey by combining it with booking a passage on a ship. Those who drive the whole route will have to take the ferry in the south of Calabria from San Giovanni to Messina which connects the mainland with Sicily in just 30 minutes. Alternatively you could choose a night ferry instead of the long drive through Italy which runs from the north Italian port Livorno or Genoa to Palermo and Catania.
