Located right on the coast south of the Vittoria wine area of Sicily we stayed here to get beautiful water views, and taste some lovely wines of the area. We went in late Oct. and we were still able to swim in the water. Beautiful sunsets on a nice balcony looking south. The décor is exactly as pictured: modern and...

We rented 2 wonderful, very modern and comfortable double bedrooms facing the ocean with a view on the sea from the bed - for a family of 4 at an extremely affordable price compared to the quality and similar B&Bs on Sicily.

Il Varo a Mare is more than a regular B&B. The host Sig Bruna makes you feel as if it is your home. A GREAT sea fronting location, with the water within 50 meters of the house. We were lucky in that there were no other guests to the 2 room upstairs flat that we occupied, so we had the...
