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.

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.
