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

Taking a hire car is advisable as Ragusa is very remote and secluded, but the journey is certainly worth it many times over. ThomsonFly provide direct flights to Catania from the Manchester (MAN) and London Gatwick (LGW).

                                                          Perfect place for families with children

                                                          5 of 5
                                                          I can give only the highest rating for both: apartment itself and the location:) Modern and beautiful large apartment with big yard and sea view. Well equipped kitchen and everything you can want to have in one place: quite place, while very close to the center; 100 meters to the yellow sand beach and the same 100 meters to the marina. Perfectly suitable for 8 adults, also suits for families with children as rooms are large and additional baby cot or bed can be placed inside. Guenter, key-holder was very nice and helpful with many advises regarding sightseeing and which road is better to choose to reach the place. Nice welcome was very pleasant after long trip from Trapani. Everything was just perfect! Monika

                                                          We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Villa La Ganzeria. What made it really special was the villa itself with its adjoining swimming pool. The villa was spectacular in design, beautifully decorated, really comfortable and so well appointed. It was extraordinarily well equipped with a huge emphasis on detail. It had a superb kitchen inside with a second one nearby which adjoined the outside barbecue. The accommodation was ideal for our group. We were a party of twelve and there was plenty of space and privacy for everybody. The leisure/recreation facilities were exceptional and the whole area was so well laid out - it provided us with lots of opportunities to eat both inside and outside. The bedrooms were a delight. When we arrived, there wasn't a hair out of place. Rosario and Alessandra were so helpful throughout.

                                                          Fantastic spacious, tasteful apartment

                                                          4 of 5
                                                          The apartment is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. Everything is of the highest quality from the comfortable beds to the coffee machine. We were delighted with the welcome box of oranges apricots etc all grown locally. The host was charming and helpful in giving local information about where to eat, shop and visit. Although a map detailing this information would be good. The views towards the harbour are exquisite and the apartment is a step away from good bars, restaurants and sandy beaches. We enjoyed sipping wine on the balcony and we hired bikes from the shop below the property. Parking is easy in the square or street. The settlement of Marina di Rugusa itself is very much a boating/sunbathing venue but it is close to the lovely baroque towns for which the area is famous.
