“I Can't Wait To Come Back!”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in September 2015

Firstly let me say that Gioacchino was just wonderful to work with! From our very first contact he was super friendly and helpful. While we were staying at the apartment he helped me to organize some day trips and was a great source of information on everything from directions to other towns, places to get groceries, fun things to do - you name it! We also were lucky enough to try his wonderful wine from his personal vineyard.
Just based on our interactions with Gioacchino I would rent from him again any day, no matter what the apartment was like!

But let me tell you about the apartment - it is fabulous! It is really big. The living room + dining room + kitchen is large, modern and open plan, and looks out at the ocean. The kitchen is fully appointed with everything you need to cook for a dinner party, let alone casual meals at home. The furniture is not only new but super comfortable, both in the living areas and in the two large bedrooms. It has a huge patio with a view of the ocean, where we ate breakfast and dinner, enjoyed coffee in the morning and wine in the evening.
From the apartment it takes less than 2 minutes to get to the beach, and a couple more minutes walk along the beach there is a lido where you can enjoy complimentary sun-chairs and umbrellas as Gioacchino's guests.
In the evenings there are several bars and restaurants within walking distance, and a lovely beach promenade to stroll along.

The location is also noteworthy, as from the apartment you are very close to the baroque towns of Noto, Modica and Ragusa as well as spectacular Marzamemi.

We will most definitely rent this apartment again and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit south eastern Sicily!

“The terrace is a great addition”
Reviewed 1 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed there for 12 days - 1 adult and 2 teenagers. The owner is kind and communicates promptly and provides useful local knowledge and tips - ask for it. The apartment is built under roof so a taller person needs to beware beams in some areas. There can sleep 6 in but it would be a bit stretch providing there is one bathroom combined with a toilet. It was O.K. with 3 of us. The terrace is a great, we spent a lot of time there when in. We spent a lot of time sightseeing; Avola has great location for 1 day trips in SE Sicily. Parking is not provided, however there was no issue in parking in the street. 40 m to the beach is as crow flies, not walking, but there is a convenient access within minutes to a beach club with umbrellas and sun beds; one spot is provided every day after 2pm as a courtesy of the owner family which is a nice touch and we used it a lot. Sea is clean and warm. In summary if you want to combine sightseeing with sun bathing on the beach, this is a nice spot.

“Great”
Reviewed 23 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Lovely apartment. Modern and stylish with air-con, a nice shower, kitchen area and washing machine, satellite (I think) TV and a wonderful big terrace with a view of the sea, big table, wind-down shade and enough room to seat more than one family if you needed to. The beach is just at the end of the lane, yards away, and has a very nice beach bar. There is a very good restaurant/pizzeria behind the beach although don't walk into Avola town for a meal because you won't find a restaurant! Look out for the fruit and veg guy who parks in the lane for a few minutes about 9.00 most mornings, and there is also a fruit and veg and bread stall in the car park behind the beach. No problems parking either by the way.
