“Romantic hideaway by the sea”

La Rosa dei Venti is a delicious 2-bed just a few minutes walk from the well-maintained beach (beach chairs, towels and umbrella provided). The apartment is beautifully decorated. The rooms are well appointed and the main bedroom has the invaluable extra of a secure safe in the wardrobe. The beach is reached via the square (Piazza duca degli Abruzzi) where you'll find the prospect of the morning coffee (Try the coffee granite with brioche at La Sorbetteria) or evening ice-cream (Caffé delle Rose) impossible to resist.

Flying in from Dublin at 8:40 PM, the last airport bus was well gone but Vincenzo will do a door-to-door there and back for a very reasonable sum.

The apartment (air conditioning in both bedrooms) is located in the town centre but quiet for all that, being up a side street. The nearby church bells do mark the hour and half-hour but our ear plugs solved this problem readily! Everything else about the apartment and its location is spot on. Being a town centre location, the sun leaves the main terrace at about 4:30 but this isn't a problem as the upper terrace (solarium) on the kitchen roof keeps the sun until after 7:00.

We ate in the apartment most evenings and while you can buy basic food items at the corner shop and fruit/veg shop across from the church, we shopped at the well-stocked EuroSpar supermarket which is about 7 minutes walk from the apartment. Get there by 9 for the fresh fish - a kilo bag of mussels for €2.50 and great swordfish and tuna steaks as well as sea bass and sea bream.

When drinking and eating out, do remember that most places now charge a tax to tourists of between 20-30% on top of the bill (only payable if mentioned on the menu). The most reasonable eatery we found was the Tre per Caso restaurant on the seafront where we got a couple of pizzas, water and a half litre of the palatable house red for €22. Expect to pay about €10-12 for a starter and €14-20 for a main in most of the restaurants along the front.

If you want to do a lot of touring about the province, you'll need to rent a car at the airport (no rentals at Marina). Ours was a toes-in-the-sand break but we did bus it to Ragusa town (25 Mins for €3.50 return) while Punta Secca is a 10-minute ride.

There's nothing in Comiso airport for the departing tourist except for a couple of vending machines but as there are so few flights (2-3 a day) your plane load will have the airport to yourselves - we got to the airport at 7:20 for 9 o'clock flight and had plenty of time to spare.

Would definitely stay at La Rosa dei Venti again.
