Holiday House Marlela is a indipendent home about 300 meters far from the sea, in the village called “Baia del Silenzio”, near Brucoli. The interior is comfortable and cozy, equipped with everything that can be useful in summer and winter as well, when a wood stove gives a nice atmosphere. The exterior has a porch surrounded by aromatic plants, as well as abeautiful garden with lawn, palm trees, bouganvillea and typical Mediterranean trees. It is also just 30 minutes away from Catania airport

The space

Holiday House Marlela is a a detached house on a 1000 square meter property, where also the owners live. The village “Baia del silenzio is a group of houses out of town. The location is ideal for those people that wish to visit eastern Sicily, since the house lyies halfway between Catania and Siracuse and yoou can easily go for for destinations such as Siracusa, Noto, Pantalica, Cavagrande but also Catania and surrounding area, including Mount Etna. It 'also ideal for those who simply want to relax, enjoy the garden, the nearby sea, etc. The location is quiet but still very close to Catania’s airport, which is only about a half hour drive.

Guest access

You have your own dedicated space inside and outside, including the terrace in front of the house and the garden. There are also a washing machine for sharing in a common laundry room and a small children's playground (swing, trampoline, tree house and slide).

Interaction with guests

We live on the same property but in a separate house, so we are available for questions, tips or every other need and we are happy if we can help our guests. Of course we respect their privacy. We speak German, Italian and English.

Other things to note

The nearest shops are a few kilometers away in the town of Brucoli (a former fishing village), where you will also find a lot of nice restaurants. From Baia del Silenzio you can reach Siracusa in a short time, with its archaeological park. Also the baroque town of Noto, the volcano Etna, as well as the nature reserves Vendicari and Cavagrande (a deep ravine through which the river Cassibile flows and where on several levels form small waterfalls and lakes) can be reached in about 1h to 1,5h driving time.

Katia and Oliver were very nice. They welcomed us with pizza and wine for us and bread and nutella for the children. The house was really lovely and fitted with taste. We do not have the impression at all to be in a hotel. There was toys for the children, books, all the things necessary to cook. The site where the house is located is gorgeous with view on the Etna and small cricks nearby. The house is ideal for a couple I think as there is a livingroom and one room that does not close with a door but we were still able to spend some nice time here as the house is really lovely. We recommend strongly this house !

Me and my family had a great time at Katias place. The place was neat and nicely set up, good located to go and eat in the fishermanstown Brucoli and to do daytrips to siracusa, vindicari or Catania. Our kids also had fun playing with the kids of Katia and Olivier. We even got some local olive oil.

The house has everything you need for short or longer stay. Katia and Oliver were great host and very personable. They were very welcoming and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. I would definitely stay there again and recommend the place.

Oliver en Katia where very helpfull hosts and made our stay very pleasant. The spacious house is located in their garden inside a dubble gated community just of the steep coast. It is very conveniently located between Syracuse and Catania; half an hour drive from the airport. The house is very neat and well equipped and the garden is lovely. The house offers enough privacy, but Oliver works from home is always in for a chat or some good advise on places to visit or how to get there. All in all it was the best place we had out of four stops in Sicily.

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans la charmante location de Katia, avec un accueil très chaleureux. Le logement est parfaitement équipé et très propre. Il est idéalement situé pour visiter la sicile de l’est (Syracuse, Catane, Etna, Taormine..) et se trouve dans un quartier résidentiel calme et agréable. Les propriétaires habitent juste à côté de la location, mais cela n’est absolument pas dérangeant car ils sont très discrets mais pour autant très disponibles pour donner des conseils etc. Nous recommandons fortement cet appartement et nous y retournerons. Merci Katia et Oliver !

Tolle kleine feine Unterkunft, in der wir uns auf Anhieb wohlgefühlt haben. Das Häuschen, das aus einem Wohn-/Esszimmer mit Küche und einem Schlafzimmer besteht, befindet sich in der Ferien- und Wohnhausanlage "Baia del Silenzio" (sehr passender Name!) ca. 30 Minuten Autofahrt südlich von Catania. Im Haupthaus nebenan wohnen die sehr netten Gastgeber mit ihren beiden Kindern. Die Tochter hat sich ganz lieb um unsere kleine Tochter gekümmert und Oliver hat uns bestens mit Tipps für Ausflüge (Syrakus, Strand, Supermarkt...) versorgt. Etwas ab vom Schuss, zum nächsten größeren Supermarkt fährt man 20 Minuten, dafür ist man für Tagestouren schnell sowohl im Süden (Syrakus), in Catania und am Ätna.
