Portopalo Di Capo Passero cottage description

Four fisherman's cottages situated right on the seafront at Marzamemi. They have been tastefully restructured and renovated with an eye to conserving the heritage of the local area. Some of Sicily’s finest natural beaches are found nearby. Casa Sarda and Casa Spada are the closest to the sea. Casa del Pescatore Tonno is the most spacious cottage. Casa Seppia is the smallest, but very romantic. The cottages are situated right on the promenade of Marzamemi, which is an ancient fishing village in the extreme southeast of Sicily. From the terrace, there is an incredible view of the village, its small port and the vividly painted boats. The tradition of all things marine is still very much alive in Marzamemi today. Only recently has it become a popular destination for Italians who enjoy the combination of the area’s natural beaches and the vibrancy of an authentic coastal village. The village boasts many restaurants, pizzerias and shops selling delicious local produce such as locally caught and processed tuna and swordfish or the famous cherry tomatoes from nearby Pachino.

Please note that these houses are very close to the main square of Marzamemi, where the Sicilians in the weekend (and in summer every day) enjoy their evening walk and some bars put the music loud until late. The proximity to the centre of the village makes these houses ideal for a stay at any time of the year. In winter the gas heater can be used to heat the houses.

The 'Case del Pescatore' have also Internet wireless.

                      San Lorenzo, which lies 2 kilometres to the north of Marzamemi, marks the beginning of one of the most beautiful stretches of the Sicilian coast. Here the shore is characterised by golden sand beaches, turquoise seas and white limestone rocks. San Lorenzo borders on the natural reserve of ‘Vendicari’. Here you’ll find a breathtaking variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna, exotic beaches and Byzantine ruins. It is also a veritable oasis of rest and tranquillity for an array of bird species. Heading south towards the south-eastern tip of Sicily, you find a fishing village called Portopalo. Taking the road from Marzamemi to Portopalo, but turning off before an impressive castle on the sea, one can turn left and visit the old ‘Tonnara’, one of the most scenic and extraordinary sights to be seen in Sicily. Noto, a magnificent little city famous for its stunning Baroque architecture, lies 20 kilometres away. You can’t miss the traditional afternoon stroll down its main street.

                      Why Portopalo Di Capo Passero:
                      We chose this house for its authenticity, for the feeling of a nostalgic, dreamy past that is able to convey. A house so simple and yet so emotionally powerful: the ancient fishing tradition and the lifestyle of this Sicilian village is all there.
