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.

The bedrooms are all large with en suite spacious showers rooms. The kitchen / living area is a lovely space to relax. The villa is well equipped including extra bedding / pillows. The aircon does a marvellous job of keeping the villa cool. There is an extra bonus of an outdoor toilet and shower (ideal when you have just got out of the pool). Outside there is lots of space including shaded areas, and a wonderful large L shaped pool, which includes a good sized shallow end (so perfect for families). The villa is located in a quiet area, but within a short walking distance of the beach, restaurants and supermarkets (we used the two bikes provided to go to a bigger supermarket, 5 minutes cycle away). The owners were very friendly and arranged for taxis to take us sightseeing, our favourite being Ragusa Ilba an amazing medieval town, only 25 minutes away by car. We would definitely recommend this villa.

We had told Alessandro it was our honeymoon so we got a welcome package which was a nice touch. The access to the beach/sea was amazing and the reason we had booked the apartment and it didn't disappoint. The apartment had everything we needed to relax and cater for ourselves but was also a short walk into town for restaurants and bars. It is also a good location for visiting the hill top towns surrounding it.

We stayed there for 17 nights between 11th August - 28th August. Perfect accommodation which spreads beyond the house to a large beautiful garden surrounded by your very own orchard of lemon trees, olive trees and fig trees etc. The garden is spectacular with a large private pool all to yourself.There is also a living space in the garden by the pool and this effectively became our living space during the long warm summer evenings. The house is of traditional build so sufficiently cools down in the evening so sleep was not a problem. The house also has a ceiling fan in every room. The house is very clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. The location is also perfect to visit all the nearby Baroque towns (Ispica, Noto, Syracuse, Modic and Rogusa - all beautiful). Even though you are in the heart of the Sicilian countryside Ispica town is a 7 minute drive away. The long, sandy, very safe and very quiet (even in August) beach of Santa Maria del Focalla and beyond is less than 8 Km away. There are two great supermarkets 5 minutes away. Mount Etna is an easy 2 hour drive up the coast along the motorway. Use sat nav it is so much easier wherever you go!!!! Michele, Daniela and their two beautiful children are wonderful, warm, friendly hosts and keep the pool and gardens meticulously clean. They were exceptional hosts and brought us delicious figs, grapes and pears from the orchard. If you want a slice of real, authentic Sicily with a dash of luxury thrown in then this is the location for you. We have stayed in numerous villas across Europe and this rates as one of the best holiday homes we've stayed in. We highly recommend it. Plus it's also worth mentioning the company who let the house and Owners Direct were all efficient, very helpful and provided excellent information. Michele and Daniela we will return!!!!
