incredibie villa in the most beautiful fishing village in Sicily, worth seeing

  • 5 of 5

It was an incredible stay, our children has fully enjoyed this big house with its green and terraces with see and volcano view. The villa has everything you only need, its new and completely equipped. The pizzeria and professional swimming pool are just next door to the house, there were very high quality. IT is very important that the beaches are all free, and we didn't pay a euro to enjoy the crystalline sea of Sicily. Brucoli is the most amazing panoramic and characteristic place I've ever seen, there are many good restaurants, excursions shops and even en boat rental club. Thank you indeed, hope to see you again!

Beautiful garden in an area great for adventurous walks and a lot to see in 1.5hr driving

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples and two babies of 7 and 8 months staying here. Marina and Salvo are very nice, helpful and communicative hosts. Salvo showed us around Brucoli upon arrival and later they also answered any questions we had. They left us with some basic things and a bottle of nice wine and water. Very welcoming.

The house was comfortable and spacious enough for us all with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. In the morning we made coffee and had breakfast, with bread from the local bakery close by, in the well equipped open kitchen. From there we had a view on palm trees, exotic plants and flowers and in the background the sea and volcano. The garden has a fence around and is very green and well kept, wich makes it perfect for kids to play and adults to use the outside kitchen and terrace. Therefor it should be a little warmer then the temperatures we had. The property is located in a big park with many holiday/weekend homes. It was very very quiet when we were there, which was nice for us. Of course the park's restaurant and swimming pool were closed, but that didn't bother us.

The weather was very good for long walks on driving distance (our car was parked on the property) and there a beautiful walks to be made right around the corner. We personally misjudged the fact that we were house-bound as soon the kids were in bed and it was too cold to sit outside. There is 1GB internet that you log-in for every time wich was enough for checking little things, but not very much for 4 adults being inside every night. For electricity we payed €50, it's separately billed, which was fine considering we had to heat when we were at home for the babies and there wasn't much sun to take energy from.

All in all I would consider the property of Marine and Salvo again when visiting this area, but in a warmer time of year so we can open the windows and let fresh air in and enjoy the garden also in the nighttime. Thank you both!

Great holidays in Brucoli

  • 4 of 5

The House is very nice, well located between Catania and Syracusa.

From there you can visit many beautiful places such as Noto, Ragusa, Taormina...

It is well furnished and clean. Salvo is very nice. He has welcome us and took time to explain us where to shop in brucoli for food, rental boats...

The wifi has to be improved and it would be a good point to mention that you have to pay an extra to have an access to the shared swimming pool.

I definitely recommend this house and already miss my breakfast on the terrace with it's amazing view on Etna and the see.

We tried the pizzas from Original Forno: soooo good!

Thank you to Marina and Salvo :)

Brucoli is a fishing village in the province of Syracuse. The village of Brucoli is situated about 5 km from Augusta with a channel that complements for much of its length and is born as a fishing village. On the walls, along the Channel, there are numerous caves, typical dwellings of the Neolithic age. West of the Channal opens a vast area, the ''Gisira ''WHERE IS SITUATED OUR VILLA, a large Gisira tavoliere calcareous slopes down towards the sea, where the extreme north lie the remains of a Neolithic village. In the midst of this panorama is the village with the glistening sea, the sky cobalt, the port-channel and drowed by age castle that the Sun of summer noon, with prodigious Alchemist's magic, becomes a fantastic Golden ancient Manor. According to Thucydides recounts in his Peloponnesian War (VI .4), here came the first Greeks from Megara, led by the oikistes Lamis, who on the banks of the river Pantakyas founded a village, to which he gave the name of Tròtylon. From this first landing, headed to Lentini and from there expelled from Chalcis founded before Thapsos and Megara Hyblaea. On the plateau of Gisira there is an oasis of greenery, stands the sanctuary of the Madonna of Adonai, with the adjoining monastery, built on a natural Grotto, already use Greek, on whose back wall you can see a figure of the Madonna with child Jesus which, according to tradition, was painted in the 4th century by the Bishop of Lipari Agathon, took refuge here to escape persecution. The river Porcària, the ancient Pantakyas, before reaching the contrada ' Bay ', Asilah, Arcila in a loop from the walls of the cavity presents high bronze age graves, all along the Ridge called Maccaudo Valley. In past centuries it seems that the River was navigable for a long is inland, and was used for the transport of goods from the coast inland. Brucoli with its port-channel was annexed in the fifteenth century into the House of Queens Aragoneses. The Governor Giovanni Cabastida, by order of Queen Giovanna, in 1467, he built the Castle guarding the warehouse and Emporium where she loaded cargo. Brucoli loader (so they were called the ports from which it departed and arrived goods) in Aragoneses age was very important for his work and was merged at the royal property. In a wing of the castle was used as a small church, the first in the country, and on the South-western tower were built two pillars like a campanile. Always inside the castle there was a room used as a burial place. The 19th-century parish church with nave, built on several occasions, is dedicated to Saint Nicholas, patron saint of mariners and patron of the country. According to a local tradition, sailors of a ship called in the middle of the storm and found refuge in Brucoli. As a sign of gratitude brought the Church under construction the painting depicting St. Nicholas enthroned, today became the altarpiece of the high altar. The Church suffered severe damage as a result of the earthquake of December 13, 1990. Secured and re-opened on May 25, 1997, was restored and reopened for worship on December 18, 2005. Of great value is the 19th-century wooden statue of St. Nicholas, which is preserved at the high altar, behind the picture depicting the Saint. For quantity of goods exported, Brucoli, often exceeded the port of Augusta. Today the port-channel, Porcària, mouth is navigable for about one hundred meters from the mouth by small tonnage vessels since the bottom, over the years, has gone increasingly rising. With appropriate interventions could be cleared and dredged to make it easier to pleasure boats or fishing. Deeper than a few dozen yards inside the channel, you can still see the bridge on the River, used by the old women of the town as a washtub. On the last Sunday of July there is the feast of the patron St. Nicholas. Every second year we celebrate with a long procession of boats on the sea. Offshore, the boat carrying the statue of the Patron Saint is thrown overboard a laurel wreath in memory of the fallen of the sea. On December 6, the day of the liturgical feast of Saint Nicholas, the Patron Saint is remembered with a solemn celebration. Every August 5, by several centuries, from the parish church began a pilgrimage, crossing the river and follow the ancient road leading to the contrada Gisira, reaches the sanctuary of the Madonna of Adonai, in which mass is celebrated. The Sunday that follows the March 19, in piazza san Nicola is the characteristic ' Auction of Saint Joseph ', in which they sell the gifts that families bring to the patron saint of Providence, including a local pizza feature called ' cuddurùni '
