Casa Falconara is an independent house surrounded by its private fenced garden and located in a peaceful rural setting with various farms and cottages at only 2 km from one of the most beautiful sandy beaches of Sicily: Lido di Noto.

The house consists of a large living room with fireplace and pool table, a kitchen with wood stove/fireplace and a bathroom with shower. The two bedrooms (a double bedroom and a small bedroom with two single beds) are located on the mezzanine level. A lovely covered terrace with comfortable garden furniture will be your perfect relaxation area.

Casa Falconara is an ideal place for both your summer and winter holidays thanks to its fireplace, pellet stove and air conditioning (hot/cold). From here you can easily explore the South and East side of Sicily and enjoy unspoiled beaches like those of Eloro, Vendicari and the previously mentioned Lido di Noto. The latter also has a cosy promenade with a coffee bar, gelateria and a few restaurants.

The house has Wireless Internet!

About Giulia Lattanzio / Chiara Caporali / Giulia Tiriticco / Nina Schuttert

We have been with Homeaway since 2006, proposing houses that are able to unfold Sicily's colours and charm at best. Houses with quality furnishing in unique locations, with incredible views or with a pool, always accurately selected in order to satisfy our main wish: to see you falling in love with Sicily just like we did. We provide you with transparent information and true pictures. What you see is exactly what you get. We will advise you as much as we can about travel info, transfers and car rental. Dinners in villas and other extra services can also be arranged. Finally, our prices are final rates! There are no hidden additional costs. We are flexible with your arrivals and departures and if you need a late check-in this is usually possible.

The villa itself is well equipped and in a lovely setting amongst lemon trees, with a lovely spacious outdoor area. We would definitely recommend this villa.

                                                                  The only downside is that the widely spaced railings upstairs made us nervous with a 5 year old, but all in all a fantastic place to stay.

                                                                  What a great landhouse near the sea! We enjoyed it. Well equiped, cosy, sunny, great location. Top!

Allways at you're command. Situated in the most beautiful region in Sicily. We definetely come back. And our kids want to come to to play in the nice garden with orangetrees.

                                                                  David W.Villach, Austria

                                                                  Hallo Lenneke,

                                                                  das Haus seht geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Terrasse sehr groß und mit schönen Sitzgelegenheiten ausgestattet. Ebenso toll die Liegen. Weniger gut die Dusche, weil ziemlich eng. Stärker gebaute Personen haben da Probleme. Ich selbst bin schlank und komme gerade zurecht.Das Warmwasser ist viel zu heiß eingestellt (Verbrühungsgefahr speziell beim Duschen! =>60° sind genug). Nicht so gut die Beleuchtung. Es gibt zu viele Lampen die extra geschalten werdend können. In 2 Wochen hat man da kaum eine Chance den richtigen Schalter zu erwischen. Der Gasherd ist aus meiner Sicht ein Sicherheitsrisiko! Die rechte vordere Kochstelle spuckt die Flammen, da anscheinend die Gasdüsen verlegt sind und kein stabiler Gasstrom zustand kommt. Man hat auch den ganzen Gasgeruch, weil eben nicht kontinuierlich verbrannt wird. Das Bügeleisen ist leider auch defekt. Das Kabel hat einige mit Klebeband isolierte stellen => defekte Lizen. Daher auch keine brauchbare Bügeltemperatur. Die automatische Außenbeluchtung im Bereich Einfahrt Parkfläche sollte nur an sein, wenn man mit dem Auto ankommt und zum Haus geht und nach ein paar Minuten aus sein. Daher, sie sollte dämmerungs- und bewegungsgesteuert sein. So wie es ist will man am Abend nicht gerne auf der Terrasse sitzen, weil alles so hell beleuchtet ist. Dann wurden oft wenn wir um 9 beim Frühstück saßen Gartenarbeiten durchgeführt. Das geht nicht! Wenn ich ein Ferienhaus miete, will ich ungestört sein. Arbeiten müssen dann eben zeitig in der Früh gemacht werden, oder später ab Mittag wenn man außer Haus ist. Absprechen ist auch eine Möglichkeit. Das hatte wir bis jetzt noch nirgends. Der Vermieter Herr Corrado war sehr Hilfsbereit nachdem wir weit verspätet und ohne Reisegepäck angekommen sind. Dafür ein Plus! Somit gebe ich mit Auge zudrücken gerade noch 4 Sterne.

                                                                  vg aus Österreich

                                                                  Recommended Villa

                                                                  A hidden escape with everything you need.

                                                                  Frances N.

                                                                  We spent a week here ,two adults and two children and this was a perfect home from home for us. Everything you need.

                                                                  Excellent Location and Facilities

                                                                  Lianna M.

                                                                  This property is an excellent getaway for a couple or a couple with 1 or 2 children, it is set in a beautiful gated lemon grove which we were offered to help ourselves to on arrival. A very warm greeting from the owner with essential groceries already bought for us for breakfast the next day (we arrived on a Sunday evening so the local supermarkets were closed already when we got there). The owners' father neighbours the property, he was also very hospitable and friendly and we were made to feel that we could ask either of them if there was anything we needed or if we had a problem. Brilliant "Italian style" customer service from them both.

                                                                  I would suggest it isnt suitable for toddlers or if you have mobility issues due to the style of the stairway/its bannister, and the bathroom being located downstairs. We managed to get English on one of the channels on the television (the film channel) - but other than that, it was Italian TV only.

                                                                  The property was very clean and equipped as per description, very spacious. The current photos on this site are accurate. The kitchen utensils/pots and pans are basic/old fashioned which was fine for us and it had pretty much everything we needed, including a bbq which was lovely to use in this setting. There are dining tables and chairs at the front AND back of the property so you can follow the sun with al fresco dining!

                                                                  I would advise that hiring a car is pretty essential in this area of Sicily and certainly for this property. Roads are rural, sometimes without pavements. The property is located absolutely perfectly for many trips to sites/pretty old towns/nature reserves/beaches within an hours drive away. Road signage isn't great so the sat nav (we used our mobiles) was essential. I would recommend learning a few basic phrases of Italian as we didn't come across many Sicilians that spoke English. Also be aware that if you are travelling out of their peak season (Sept - May) that some beach shops and cafes are closed so it is very quiet - excellent if you are looking to be away from high tourist footfall.

                                                                  A few of our favourite bits:

                                                                  Oasi Faunistica di Vendicari (coastal nature reserve, its main beach "Calamosche" is lovely too if you want a beach and exploration in one day)

                                                                  Cava Grande di Cassibile (inland nature reserve - beautiful if you want a gentle hike on a cooler day into a canyon)

                                                                  Noto (10min drive away - comes alive late afternoon/evening)

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Casa Falconara is close to many natural and cultural highlights of Sicily and I am sure your extensive feedback will be useful for our future guests. Thank you!
