Conceived as a refuge for sea lovers, the villetta "Le Tamerici" leans to the sea like a ship ready to set sail leaving behind the hustle and bustle of everyday life and civilization.
That's the perfect getaway to relax and boost your energy just enjoying the life at sea!
The villa is a freestanding detached house, perfectly equipped, offering a large entrance open-space living-dining room with fireplace, a nice kitchen well organised and to bedrooms which ones is the double master bedroom with sea view, and the second one is double / triple. If necessary, a comfortable sofa bed is also set in living room. Fans in each bedrooms and in living room.
A full bathroom in Italian style, with shower, is served of hot water by an electric water heater (50L), as well as the kitchen, not instead the two outdoor showers.
Also provided washing machine, soaps and hair drier, iron and iron-table.
Between the two bedrooms and the bathroom, there's also a very fresh and multipurpose room, which could be arranged as single bedroom for a small bed, or for cradles just like a cute nursery. It's also possible make it as a little studio or as a functional iron-corner, it just depends on our guest's needs.
The Mediterranean garden keeps the house's privacy secluded from the street and the neighbouring buildings. This one as well as two large loggias will allow you to enjoy the outdoors all day, besides permitting direct access on the beach in front, which is amazing for snorkelling or take a walk.
Also a BBQ is available to do pic-nics with all your family or friends!
To close out the day, enjoy the fascinating views of the Sea and the sun setting on the cliffs nearby from the panoramic roof terrace, or just enjoy a romantic dinner under the stars with candlelight.
Indeed useful the garage and the small alley, offering sufficient parking space for several cars or also for a trailer for boat.
Punta Braccetto is a summer village offering two bar-tabacchi, a bazaar, a baker's for daily bread and croissant, two restaurant-pizzerias, and a pub; indeed the golden sandy beaches are the gorgeous place where spend summer days:
-The beach in front the villa is quite and perfect to relax maybe because it's still a little wild despite the nearby houses, That's a thick sandy beach, with seashells and not really pebbly. Walking along completely (only 450yd) you reach the ruins of an ancient Saracen watchtower, called "Rocca dei Tramonti", very romantic on sunset.
The sea is lovely, like an aquarium at hand, ideal for scuba diving, snorkelling and swimming.
Not far from the villa there are two other golden and fine sand beaches, at just a walking distance:
-Ones is just above the ruins and near to many camping, so always full of crowds of young people and tourists; there's also a chalet , where is possible buy anytime fresh drinks and something to eat.
-the second one is the "spiaggia di Randello", a really long beach (2,4 miles) wild and quite, in front of the nice "Pino d'Aleppo" Forest Reserve where to do also pic-nic and jogging.
There's also a long reef where diving, fishing or snorkeling; that's so romantic than it's select as wedding photographic set on summer sunsetting!
Looking for supermarket, banks and post office, Santa Croce Camarina is the nearest town, far from Punta Braccetto just 10-15 minutes by car.
Scoglitti, Punta Secca and Caucana are other nearby nice towns, for many other restaurants, Sicilian ice-cream bars and sport's activities.
Marina di Ragusa, Ibla and Scicli are indeed well known for their night movida.
We suggest to visit Greek ruins of Camarina Museum, and the baroque cities of the area, recently listed among the UNESCO Heritage (Modica, Ragusa, Noto...)
No public transports serve the town neither the surrounds, thus the own/rental car is strongly recommended.
We had a lovely time staying at villa "Le Tamerici" with my family. The house was great and comfortable.
I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend this house by the sea.
Thanks Silvana and Amalia for warm welcome and helpfulness. Good luck for You!!!
What a great place! Our compliments to Amalia for her warm welcome and all the explanations what to do in the area. Thanks to her we had a fantastic wine tasting in a local winery and went to a procession in Saint George in Ragusa.
The house in in a great location (even though you need a car!) right by the sea.
They have equipped the house very thoughtful and we cooked dinners with fresh fish and shrimps from the market.
Small villages are easy to reach by car and worth a visit.
Just around the corner there is a large natural reserve where you can hike and jogg in the morning.
Lost of cities like Noto, Modica, Siracusa, Vittoria, Plaza Armerina, Agrigento, Enna can be reached by car easily within maximum 2,5 hours. But you need a good map! Road signs can be confusing.
Thank you Silvana and Amalia for te wonderful atmosphere you have created in the house!
(You have the best shower ever!)
Our stay at La Tamerici was a very nice expierence. Well advised before traveling, Silvana had even arranged a B&B for us in Catania because of our very late arrival there. We ended up staying the night in Rome as the connecting flight was missed. On our arrival the next day we were welcomed by Silvana's brother and mother who were in the house and Silvana's sister Amalia who arrived a little later. All kinds of tips, where to go, and where to eat were discussed. Although we were staying a week there were enough options for the month.
We have really enjoyed our stay, the house is the nicest in the area, well thought through by Silvana's father. The views are beautiful, the patio pleasant to sit in the shade, and the roof to sunbathe. The vila has atmosphere and a working kitchen.
We can recommend La Tamerici, a nice place to stay and the sea is your pool !
Silvana and her sister Amalia are excellent hosts. They went far beyond all our expectations to make us feel welcome. Their little restaurant brochure is just one example of how they help you to make the most out of your stay!
The house itself is as described: Nicely decorated, well equipped, new bathroom with two shower heads. The kitchen is a bit small, but very efficiently to use.
When it is not too windy you can enjoy the roof terrace and it surely is the ideal place for breakfast to start your day!
Silvana's house is a lovely place right on the water with three separate terraces, two covered, one on the roof, to enjoy any sort of weather. The house is comfortable and well-furnished. Everything works and there is everything you need for trips to the beach (either right on front of the house or five minutes down the road in the little village if you like to have a restaurant/cafe as well).
We arrived late at night and Silvana and Amalia (her sister) had kindly arranged for us still to be able to get a meal at a restaurant a few kilometres away (Rosacambra) near Santa Croce Camarina - great meal and a great price.
We can highly recommend Silvana's place for a relaxing holiday in South-East Sicily, with easy access to the baroque hilltop towns of Ragusa, Modica, Noto and also to Agrigento and the Valle dei Templi.
Vielen Dank an Silvana und Amalia!
Der Aufenthalt in Punta Braccetto war perfekt. Alles entspricht der Beschreibung. die Lage am Meer ist fantastisch. Das Haus ist geräumig und hat einen schönen Garten mit direktem Zugand zum Strand. Bei den noch kühlen Abenden hat uns der Kamin gewärmt. Amalia hat uns nett in Empfang genommen und uns viele Informationen und Tipps geliefert. In der Umgebung gibt es schöne Ausflugsziele - man kann auch direkt am Strand zu einem Naturreservat gelangen und abends den Sonnenuntergang genießen. Wir können diese Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
Sono stati purtroppo pochi giorni ma vissuti pienamente ed in un posto meraviglioso.
Potersi svegliare al mattino con il rumore del mare, la sabbia a pochi passi e poter arrivare la sera non vedendo l'ora di osservare dal terrazzo sul tetto quel fantastico tramonto sull'acqua non ha prezzo.
La casa di Silvana è stata per noi un luogo magico e ringrazio con entusiasmo lei e sua sorella Amalia per averci permesso di vivere questi pochi giorni di vacanza al massimo della spensieratezza anche grazie alla loro infinita disponibilità.
Séjour ensoleillé avec une belle vue. Juste qqls bruits par les pêcheurs pendant la nuit.
un lieu de rêve, tout est parfait et l'accueil des plus chaleureux
Vielen Dank an Silvana und Amalia, ein rundum gelungener Urlaub.
Das Haus ist perfekt, die Lage am Mittelmeer traumhaft schön.
Amalia hat uns vor Ort tolle Informationen geliefert und uns sehr
gastfreundlich empfangen. Wir können diese Ferienlokalität nur
wärmstens empfehlen. Selbst unsere beiden Kinder im Teenageralter haben geäußert, es sei ihr schönster Urlaub gewesen.
In diesem Haus fühlt man sich rundum wohl - gern reisen wir wieder einmal nach Punta Braccetta.
