surrounded by the sea

Marzamemi is a seascape village surrounded by the sea in Siracusa district. This small village is located on a promontory where you can find many moors for nautical pleasure craft. At the end of the 1800s a port of call has been built in this area, close to the old tuna food-processing building and to the mansion-house belonging to the Villadorata aristocratic family.

The whole area is interesting not only bacause of its charming landscapes and unpolluted nature, but also because of its ancient history. This old fishermen village is located 5 kilometres from the Vendicari reserve and the well known Cala Mosche beach and 6 kilometres from Portopalo di Capo Passero, which represents the farthest stip of the South Eastern Sicily. From Marzamemi you can also easily reach the “Isola delle Correnti” or Flow Island, so called because this beach represents the place where the Mediterranean Sea and the Ionio Sea merge one into each other. The Isola delle Correnti is located about 8 kilometres away from the village and it represents one of the tourist’s preferred destinations. As it has been anticipated, tourists can not leave this place without discovering its history. Located at 20 kilometres away from Marzamemi, you can sightsee the baroque city of Noto and the so called “stone garden”. No more than 50-60 kilometres away, you can also admire Siracusa, Palazzolo Acreide, Necropoli di Pantalica, Scicli, Ragusa Ibla and Modica, which are location patronised by UNESCO.

The hotel is located in the historic centre of Marzamemi seafaring village, a strategic location which allows you to easily reach the main beaches and all the primary services (bar, food store, ATM, 24 hours tourist medical service, pubs and nightlife entertainments).

La Conchiglietta is a pretty hotel family managed in front of the Ionio Sea, ideal for the tourist who is looking for a relaxing holiday and a picturesque seafaring landscape. The 12 rooms available are provided with private bathroom, conditioning air, TV. Some of the rooms have also a private balcony with a beautiful view on the sea, others overlook the main street of the village. 50 metres away from this main building, you can find the “depandance”, a second building where 8 more rooms with the same services are available. The hotel is located 100 metres away from the “Spinazza” beach, set between the eastern cliff and the delightful headland called “Bove Marino”, on the western side. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the hotel. Here you can enjoy your lunch or dinner on a romantic terrace in front of the sea, while eating typical dishes of the local marinara tradition.
