- The plot ends at the sea
- Possible to build up to 1000 sqm
- Good road access
- Existing structure to finish or take down
- Flat and easy to build on
- Close to both Avola and Fontane Bianche
The location is very good, just 1.5 kilometers from Avola and, the other way, some 3 kilometers from Fontane Bianche.
Except for some villas, this area is agricultural and here you are surrounded by orchards. The road access is good, and the plot is flat and easy to build on.
Have you been searching for a while, you know how difficult it is to find a land of this size confining the sea, where you also have the possibility to build large. Here you can build up to 1,000 sqm, which is hard to beat.
The coast is rocky but completely accessible and the water is crystal clear. Here you will have privacy as you are off the visited beaches. Would you like a sandy beach, you have both Avola and Gallina within bicycle/walking distance.
The existing structure of around 150 sqm can either be finished or tore down – all according to needs and requirements.
The sea photos are taken from the seaside of the plot. The 3D drawings are made as an example of a possible way to construct and can, of course, be altered according to taste and need.
We can assist during the entire construction phase.

There are some cities in the world whose names are loaded with a mystical, not to say mythical, charge. Names like Timbuktu, Samarkand, and Alexandria. In Europe there is a shortage of cities with this aura, they tend to be already fully explored and exploited by the time you get to them. Syracuse is the exception.
Syracuse was founded 734 BC by the Greeks from Corinth on the island of Ortigia, which today is the hip district that competes with Taormina and Cefalú to have the highest real estate prices in Sicily. The Greek heritage is extensive in the city and in the region as a whole. The archaeological site of Neapolis is located on the northern outskirts of the city, where you will find perhaps the most beautiful and well-proportioned amphitheater in the world. From around 400 BC, the amphitheater is carved from the mountain with the turquoise Mediterranean acting as its backdrop. Once a year, usually in May or June, a Greek play is put up here. Also in the same area are Archimedes tomb, an ancient limestone quarry and the altar of Hiero II. The giant sacrificial altar that Hiero II had constructed around 241-215 BC was also here, but all that remains of it today is a 196 meters long foundation. The ancient limestone quarry houses a remarkable 23 meters high and 65-meter deep cave carved out of the mountain, called Dionysus’s ear. Today the quarry carries the name Latomie del Paradiso and houses a beautiful garden. Another must-see in Syracuse is the previously mentioned island of Ortigia, connected by two bridges just southwest of the city. The island has the world's oldest street, Via Dione, dated to 407 BC and also the Apollo Temple in Doric style from the 6th century BC.
One of the city's most famous figures is the mathematician and inventor Archimedes. He determined, among many, many other things (think 3.14 ...) that the volume of a sphere is two-thirds of the volume of a cylinder of the same diameter and height, (4pr3) / 3. He was so proud of the discovery that he decided that his grave would be marked with a sphere inscribed in a cylinder. According to legend, he was later killed by a Roman soldier after he had been annoyed by him and tried to dismiss him with the words "Do not touch my circles", referring to a problem he was just trying to solve. Well, who knows?
When it comes to wine, the province of Syracuse can boast the almost legendary grape Nero d'Avola, which is used to make the dark, full-bodied and tasteful quality wine of the same name. The town of Avola, that gives the grape its name, is halfway between Syracuse and Sicily's most southernmost point, Portopalo di Capo Passero. Not far from the baroque town of Noto's seaside resort Lido di Noto. It is difficult to find any low-quality Nero d'Avola wines, with even the bottles sold for 3-4 euros at the local supermarkets considered to outperform wines 5 times their price. And for the connoisseurs, the wine companies usually have a few hard-to-get bottles of Nero d'Avola in the highest price and quality ranges, so be sure to buy a few bottles directly from the manufacturers.
Some of Sicily's best beaches can also be found on the way to and from Avola and Vendicaria's nature reserve around the southernmost tip, where seemingly endless miles of sandy beaches follow the coast through Pozzallo, Marina di Modica, Sampieri, Donnalucata, Marina di Ragusa and Punta Secca.
The old fishing village of Marzamemi is also worth a mention. Especially the quaint main piazza, that has a surprisingly large amount of spectacular restaurants for such a small town, is worth a visit. In the summers they have live Sicilian music well into the night. A perfect way to end the day following an evening walk along the seaside and watching the sunset.
Lastly, if you go to the province of Syracuse, do not deny yourself a granita di mandorla. It can blasphemously be described as an almond slushie, but it is so much more! A delicacy made from freshly ground, locally grown almonds, it is a true pleasure. Eat it as it is, or mix some of it in your espresso.
