If breathtaking sea views at breakfast and the murmur of waves soothing you to sleep sound like prerequisites for your next holiday, consider a stay at Villa La Favorita, perched on the shore of one of Sicily’s most famous white sand beaches.
This beautiful villa offers a soul-soothing view of crystalline waters and is just a few hundred metres from the creamy sands of Fontane Bianche, a paradisal beach which hugs the coastline, 20km south of Syracuse.
With six stylish bedrooms and the capacity to sleep 13, Villa La Favorita makes a comfortable choice for a medium to large family or friendship groups in search of a Sicilian break filled with sun, sand and sea. Plus, the close proximity of historical Syracuse with its ancient archaeological sites of interest means that there is more to this part of Sicily than a simple beach holiday.
