Syracuse, Province of Syracuse, Sicily
Casale Fradama is an historical villa built around 1400 in the countryside near Siracusa (south-east of Sicily). It was restored a few years ago and the house has returned to the splendour of the early 20th century. The villa is an Italian historical building as it was a fortress of the XV century and moreover, here, under the shade of one of its olive trees, in 1943, was signed the Armistice of Cassibile, after the American landings on the coasts of Sicily.
The villa can host up to 9 people and is therefore perfect for large families and group of friends travelling together. It has 4 bedrooms (2 en-suite) and 4 bathrooms, an old-fashioned but fully equipped kitchen and a huge dining room where you can rest after a long day touring all the magical places that surround Siracusa.
There's a big lawn outside together with a terrace that...

This historic, wonderful, villa was conveniently located to everything we wanted to see. Host Mario and family were welcoming and helpful in every way. For a unique stay I would highly recommend.

We traveled to this historic house in June as a group of 7 adults and a baby. None of the pictures taken do it true justice. It is a fortified building complete with dry moat and high ceilings. The latter keeps it cool during the day. Of course as an historic building you do not get hotel 'luxury', but all...

Castle Fradama was exactly what we were looking for on our first trip to Sicily. Surrounded by orange grooves, artichokes and lettuce, it was still close enough to Siracusa for access to Ortigia and other sights. Mario was a helpful host, making sure this 15th century manor house was well stocked with the essentials. We rattled around in this big...

Dear Ernie, it was a great pleasure to have you, your wife and your freinds, as my guests at Casale Fradama. Thank you very much for your very nice review. With my best wishes for all, Mario

About the neighbourhood
The villa is located on a big farm and is therefore surrounded by cultivated fields, an orange garden and an olive grove. It is in the quietest environment as there are no other houses on the premises except for the farmer's house.
The perfect way to reach the villa and be able to explore the surroundings freely is by car as public transportation doesn't get so far in the country.
Private parking for up to 3 cars is in the courtyard.
The beautiful town of Siracusa with its precious Ortigia island and its Greek archaeological sites is 10 km away. The shores of Ognina and Fontane Bianche are 3 to 5 km away and all the other Baroque towns of the Val di Noto are within a 50 km distance.
Getting around
At 5 minutes of car there is a lot of very beatifull beaches free or with beach servicas.
At 10\ minutes of car you can reach Siracusa with Ortigia and Noto.

For food shoppong you can go at Cassibile ( 1 km) with little market and pizzeria.
