Farmhouses and villas in the Sicilian countryside

These country villas are authentic Sicilian farmhouses fully renovated in a rustic style. They are divided into apartments with a shared swimming pool and facilities. They are immersed in the Val di Noto countryside around Ragusa, perfect for a holiday in contact with nature and within easy reach of Sicily’s spectacular beaches at Marina di Ragusa.

Your country holiday in Sicily

Taste the true essence of bygone Sicily in one of our country villas. Relax in the Sicilian countryside, breathe the pure air and explore the surrounding area, where there are nature reserves, beaches and the remains of ancient settlements. At stunning locations in the Val di Noto, amid dry-stone walls, olive groves, carob trees and other typical Mediterranean scrub plants, the farmhouses are divided into comfortable apartments with a shared swimming pool and common spaces and services. They offer all the facilities you need for a holiday with your family or friends in an atmospheric location that will take you back in time to discover fascinating places steeped in history.

Our farmhaouses are also within easy access of the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. Sicily’s beaches (e.g. at Marina di Ragusa, Punta Secca and Punta Braccetto) are not far away and are even within reach by bike.

A perfect environment for a holiday with family or a group of friends, where the children can entertain themselves in the pool and play outdoors, while you relax at the poolside or in one of the many cosy spaces provided.

Discover the Val di Noto: a baroque heritage in the heart of Sicily

If you’re planning a holiday in Sicily, you have to include a tour of the Val di Noto, a Baroque pearl in south-east Sicily. The region is home to a treasure of great historical and architectural value, so much so that in 2002, Unesco decided to list eight late-Baroque cities as a World Heritage Site: Noto, Ragusa, Scicli, Modica, Caltagirone, Palazzolo Acreide, Catania and Militello in Val di Catania.

In ancient times the area was one of the administrative districts of the Kingdom of Sicily. Although they now belong to different provinces, namely Ragusa, Syracuse and Catania, they are known as the Baroque cities of the Val di Noto because they share the same Baroque style of art and architecture. This was the main artistic movement that flourished during the reconstruction following the devastating earthquake of 1693, which razed much of eastern Sicily to the ground. Although the Arab part was completely destroyed, unlike western Sicily which still has Arab remains, it is perhaps thanks to that earthquake that we can today enjoy the fascinating late-Baroque churches and sumptuous noblemen’s houses in Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Scicli and Noto.

Furthermore, a visit to the Val di Noto would be incomplete without immersing yourself in its pristine natural environment, including marine and river nature reserves, beaches and coasts with crystal-clear waters, quarries, remains of ancient settlements in the woods and marvellous Mediterranean landscapes. An enchanted land waiting to be explored by lovers of trekking and excursions. Don’t miss the beautiful Vendicari nature reserve along Sicily’s south-east coast.
