MEDITERRANEAN COLOURS FOUND IN NATURE AND ART OF CERAMICS
Terrauzza sul Mare looks out on the beautiful coast of the Ionian Sea, on the Plemmirio promontory, where , between XVIII and XVII centuries B.C. , the first Greek Ionian settlers arrived and afterwards, Dorics found the city of Siracusa.
The Firm, made of 11 hectares, produces vegetables, all over the field and also a small amount of lemons and olive oil.
Terrauzza sul Mare is situated at only 8 km from the city of Siracusa and 22 km from Noto.
Both cities have been declared, by UNESCO, of being part of human heritage, thanks to their archeological assets and Baroque style, which you can see on the eighteenth-century buildings.
At about 50 km from us, you will find another UNESCO heritage site, Palazzolo Acreide, which, also is both a Baroque and archeological town, with its Greek theatre.
Every year, in Siracusa's Greek theatre, classical plays are performed, written by ancient Greek playwrights but Palazzolo Acreide's theatre hosts them too.
Terrauzza sul Mare is situated at 70 km from Catania Aereoport and provides a bus public service to Siracusa.
The firm, run by Renata and Giuseppe, has 9 fully equipped and air-conditioned apartments, surrounded by green and nature. The apartments are able to lodge two or more people and breakfast is included.
Breakfast is brought in baskets every morning, which are left on the tables outside the apartments.
Each apartment has a double bedroom, entrance with kitchen, bathroom with shower and an area outside, where you can sit and relax.
The calmness and scents of the garden, especially in spring, are the features which make Terrauzza sul Mare the ideal place for an extremely relaxing holiday.
The entrance to the sea can be reached through an internal path which will take you to our bay of rocks. It has been outlined by Etna a few millions of years ago and has remained immaculate since and it is now part of Plemmirio's Protected Marine Area, characterised by clear and warm water.
You will be able to find sandy beaches going from 1 km south from us, up to Capo Passero, passing through beautiful beaches such as Vendicari and San Lorenzo.
Our firm does not provide food service but at 100 meters from us, you can find a pizzeria and within 5 km there are good restaurants along the sea.
At 1.5 km from us, you will find two good mini-markets which also provide ready hot meals.
Another unique characteristic about Terrauzza sul Mare, is its CERAMIC'S LABORATORY.
It is run by the owner of the firm Mrs Renata, who, on demand, organises printmaking courses on terracotta objects.
The firm has also a sheltered area for camping vans.
