Overview

Surrounded by a large garden and with a stunning terrace overlooking the beautiful coastline that hugs the tip of south east Sicily, Hibiscus provides comfortable accommodation in a peaceful resort for families and groups of friends looking for a seafront location.

Property

Hibiscus has a spectacular location overlooking the Ionian Sea, close to several lovely sandy beaches and with a private path leading directly to a rocky beach that is great for fishing, swimming and snorkelling.

Outside: The extent of outdoor space is a real bonus for families. Gaze out to sea from the huge panoramic roof terrace, accessed via an external staircase. It is the best place for an aperitivo! The large open lawn space, with a cluster of towering palm trees, provides the ideal space for kids to let off steam and play ball games and is very popular with families. The lawn is overlooked by a spacious covered outdoor kitchen with a wood-burning pizza oven and a large outdoor table and chairs.

When you need to cool off, just wander down the path to the rocky beach for a swim, then stretch out on a private grassy tree-lined terraced area, set slightly back from the rocky coastline, and soak up the sun on the sunloungers.

 

Inside: Spread out across one floor, the living area of Hibiscus offers space, comfort and lots of bright light. From the garden, walk straight into a luminous sitting room and TV area that is great for moments out of the sun. From there, enter into the characteristic and fully-equipped kitchen and dining room, with views out to the garden. All four bedrooms are comfortable doubles, with two of them sharing a large family bathroom with a shower. The other two bedrooms both have lovely sea views and ensuite bathrooms - one of which has a fabulous double shower.

Local Sights

Fontane Bianche - the closest town to Hibiscus - is a very popular holiday for Sicilians. It is right on the coast and boasts a lovely sandy beach with clear waters. The town can get pretty busy during the summer months, but has a lively atmosphere and is a lot of fun, with a variety of shops, restaurants and bars.

The beaches in this part of Sicily are wonderful and should certainly be on everyone's to do list. You will find some amazing beaches at the Vendicari Nature Reserve and some great water, ideal for snorkelling at the Plemmirio Marine Reserve.

If natural beauty is what you're after then this part of Sicily has plenty to see and enjoy. The Cavagrande del Cassibile Nature Reserve is a 10 km-long canyon with gorgeous tracks to follow and lots of fantastic wildlife, vegetation and ancient cave-dwelling settlements to see.

Siracusa is, according to many, the most beautiful city in Sicily and it is not too far from Hibiscus. With ancient history, phenomenal architecture, outstanding beauty and some great restaurants, Siracusa really has it all and should definitely be visited.

There are several other towns of exceptional beauty in south-east Sicily. Noto is one such and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site (along with seven other towns) as an unparalleled example of the Baroque architectural style.


Local Experiences

One great local experience is to get out on the water. The local town of Pozzallo is well known for water sports and is the perfect place to go windsurfing. Lessons can be booked through one of the many operators.

If you aren't a fan of windsurfing then you could always rent a boat for the day and explore the beautiful coastline and many picturesque bays and beaches from the sea. The option of hiring a skippered boat trips is available.

Tours of the beautiful towns of the Val di Noto are available and are a great way to appreciate the outstanding Baroque architecture for which this part of Sicily is known. If Sicily's ancient past interests you then a guided tour of Siracusa, with its Greek theatre and fabulous archaeological park, would be perfect for you.

If visiting the area in May or June, make sure to look out for the Greek theatre festival in Siracusa. During these months several Greek plays are performed in the ancient theatre, creating a unique and unforgettable evening out in a marvellous setting.

Eagle-eyed fans of Inspector Montalbano will perhaps find this area of Sicily fairly recognisable: the television series is predominantly filmed in the area. You can book a tour during which you will visit some of the well known sights, made famous by the television programme.
