Holiday apartments for rent in Sicily (Scicli)
Pomelia holiday apartments are located in the historic centre of Scicli, a baroque jewel of the south east of Sicily, which was declared UNESCO World Heritage City for its monuments and churches.
All the accommodations offer a holiday home service that will let you spend a pleasant stay in total autonomy and with all the comforts of an apartment. Live like at home, in the atmosphere of a Sicily of ancient times. Explore the the old streets of the historic centre with its ancient houses, where you can hear the Sicilian dialect and feel the scent of the local cuisine.
Stay in a unique apartment: rocky walls and floors, an ancient wood oven and an old trough give a nice touch to your holiday apartment. Some of our accommodations are literally “carved into the rock”: once, large families lived there until ‘50s and ‘60s of the last century with their farmed animals. Having been recently restored, these houses still preserve their typical features and offer all the comforts, such as air conditioning, wi-fi connection and television, to assure a relaxing holiday in a very suggestive ambience.
A holiday in the ancient traditions of Scicli
From the terrace of your house, you can look out right on the old district of Santa Maria La Nova, heart of the traditional religious feasts of Scicli, such as the folkloric procession of “U Gioia” (on Easter Sunday) and observe daily life scenes that you cannot find in the big cities anymore. During the warmest days, the elderly women sit on the door to embroider and chat or hang the laundry in the street, between a house and another. Have a talk with the neighbors and learn some words in Sicilian dialect..
Wake up in the morning with the traditional “vanniari”, the laud yell of the street vendors announcing their products around in town. Buy the local fresh products and prepare a delicious lunch: all our apartments have an equipped kitchen, where you will find all you need to cook.
Scicli is also famous for being the filming set of the tv series “Inspector Montalbano” and charms its visitors with its suggestive tiny streets, churches, noble palaces, the elegance of its historical centre and the precious testimonies of the ancient Arab, Norman and Aragonese civilizations.
Scicli is a few kilometers from the sandy beaches of Donnalucata (9 km), Sampieri (10 km), Cava d’Aliga (11 km) and from the main seaside resorts of the area: Marina di Ragusa (18 km), Punta Secca (25 km) and Pozzallo (23 km). It is also a short distance from Ragusa Ibla and Modica, the UNESCO baroque towns of Val di Noto, in the south east of Sicily.
Pomelia apartments in Scicli are the perfect place for a holiday in Val di Noto, where you can dive in blue waters and live the local tradition.
