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

Catania Airport (CTA) is located 100km from a holiday rental villa in Ragusa. 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).

Peaceful Idyll in Rural Sicily

5 of 5
We spent 2 weeks in this beautiful spot and lacked for nothing. The agent gave us a warm and informative welcome, and was always on the end of the phone to solve problems and give advice throughout our stay. It is about 1 hour 40 from Catania airport and the roads are mostly new and very good in the area. Often driving was easy because he local roads are pretty quiet. The house is not palatial but is very comfortable and has everything you need. The walled garden and pool with the outdoor seating, BBQ and pizza oven are absolutely idyllic. The grounds and pool are beautifully maintained and are a totally private, quiet oasis in the countryside. We ate a lot at the nearest restaurant (3 mins walk away) which is excellent and in Modica (12 min drive) which has fabulous food and atmosphere. You can easily visit lots of fascinating Baroque towns, Greek and Roman archaeological sites and lots besides. The Valley of the Temples is a long drive (about 3 hours) but certainly recommended and doable, as is Mount Etna (more like 2 hours), but closer treasures for ancient ruin enthusiasts are Syracuse and Cava D'Ispica (which is right on your doorstep)! Villa del Casalle at Palazza Amerina and Morgantina are also well worth the 2 hour trip. Syracuse and Ortygia are just lovely regardless of the ruins. There are great beaches within a short drive (we loved Sampieri). You can get all your shopping in Frigintini (less than 10 min drive), or in the 24 hour supermarket just outside Rosolini. The locals were all extremely friendly and helpful. The best days were spent playing and relaxing in the pool at home. We went with older teenagers who were very happy there (there is wifi!) but it would also suit families with younger children - especially because of the local restaurant and easy and fun self-catering facilities. We had a great time trying out the pizza oven (tip: make sure you have spare flour to get the pizzas off the paddle!!) it would also be fabulous for a couple or friend-group getaway.

Comfortable stay for 3 generation family of 7.

4 of 5
Modern, comfortably airconditioned and well equipped house. Good housekeeping and gardening service. Shabby access road. Long and steep walk to shops, restaurants and beach, i.e. car necessary. Parking space for 2 vehicles inside locked gate. The pool with max depth of 1,4 m. was perfect playground for our grandchildren (6 and 8).
