Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Ragusa, Sicily your home away from home

Ragusa is simply jaw-droppingly beautiful. Having been destroyed by a huge earthquake in 1693, the whole town was rebuilt in a Baroque style, giving it a unique, unified style. The town clings to the side of a gorge, with houses, churches and palaces seemingly built on top of each other in a shambolic yet truly appealing style. Ragusa is off the beaten track in Sicily, which is a huge surprise, yet a real advantage for those who do travel to a Ragusa villa as the culture is completely untainted.

Things to do in the Ragusa, Sicily

Walking through the town upon your arrival is a real treat. The whole region has been placed on the UNESCO world Heritage area, with 18 specific buildings placed under protection by them. You will certainly be inspired by the brilliance and beauty of the town, especially when you discover the Basilica di San Giorgio, the Giardino Ibleo Gardens and the Cathedral of San Giovanni Battista.

The beaches that surround Ragusa are beautifully empty all year round. The lack of tourist crowds mean that the beaches are clean and secluded, perfect for lazy days in the sun. Tourist facilities are thin on the beaches, but if you want to go sailing or scuba diving, there are ample opportunities.

The secluded nature of the town has meant that the culture is quite unique to Ragusa. The dialect can be hard for even Italians to understand, and the dishes served in the restaurants, including panatigghie, a pastry filled with meat, cinnamon and cocoa, cannot be found anywhere else. If you are staying in a Ragusa villa, a tour of local restaurants is a fantastic experience, and if you are feeling adventurous, there are plenty of opportunities to take a recipe and re-create Ragusa cuisine in your own, self catering Ragusa accommodation.

Places to visit on holiday to Ragusa, Sicily

If you have the time during your holiday, a visit to the Aeolian Islands is well worth the effort. The islands are beautifully wild, with four active volcanic islands, some magnificent diving as well as a huge range of walking routes and beautiful beaches.

Weather in Ragusa, Sicily

Ragusa’s climate is exceptional. During the summer months, daily temperatures are rarely less than 32°C in the middle of the day, making a Ragusa villa with a pool a priceless asset. Temperatures remain blissfully warm long into the evening, allowing you to walk the atmospheric streets or picnic on the beach in the evenings.

Cheap flights to Ragusa, Sicily

It was comfortable, furnished beautifully, had everything we needed and the views over the marina were magnificent. Communication from time of booking, through our late arrival and during our stay was fantastic. Thank you Guenter and Giorgio for helping us have an amazing holiday! We loved the tray of local food you provided - it was very kind of you. The town itself was quiet as expected at this time of year and there were only a few bars and restaurents open. Despite this it was buzzing on Sunday afternoon when it seemed like everyone for miles around had come out for a walk in the sunshine. The Stella Marina bar, which was just a few metres away was quite lively on Tuesday and Friday with the International crowd from the marina, who were all very friendly. The local people were very friendly too. My daughter really appreciated getting to play with a baby in one restaurent we were in. It was full of locals and the baby was brought to visit everyone, while her mum got to eat in peace. People were all highly amused by the mad British wearing shorts and t-shirts, while they were all wrapped up in jumpers, coats, hats and scarves! One old lady stopped me in the street to insist the teenagers should have coats on. It was 15 -17°C and we all had caught the sun on the sheltered balcony. Not sure how they would cope with cold and windy UK. We found plenty to do in the surrounding area, Ragusa and Scicli were beautiful and for Inspectore Montalbano fans it was easy to find all the film locations. I had not heard of it until after I had booked the holiday but would recommend watching a few episodes to see how beautiful the area is and of course bore the rest of the family who didn't get around to watching any. We also enjoyed the Archiological park in Syracusa and the sandwich shop Caseificio Borderi in Ortigia market is not to be missed but it is a slow drive so make a day of it. All in all it was a fantastic winter break. We had good weather and stayed in a fabulous location without the crowds.

The house is equipped with everything you could ever possibly need. He is a truly amazing host providing not only local produce but his own home grown lemons, olive oil and wine. The villa is in a very beatiful location. Right on the sea front yet a short stroll into the village along the promenade. The surrounding towns and village range from beatiful costal resorts to stunning architecture. All the locals are as hospitable as Georgio. We had an amazing holiday and it was so much more than we had expected. We have already booked to come back again next year.

All three bedrooms have stunning ensuite bathrooms and the living area is spacious and light. Large sliding doors open out onto a patio creating a huge indoor outdoor living space. This leads onto a beautiful swimming pool. We were greeted by the owners brother who ensured that we were well settled an had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this property.
