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

Modica itself is a very nice town to visit and the countryside is lovely. Not to far to the local sites Ragusa 30 mins, Siracusa circa 1 hour. The house is out in the country and the grounds are gated and walled. There are two decent looking restaurants within walking distance, didn't go in as had babies with us and the restaurants open quite late (for Brits). Communication with Giorgio was very efficient, but all in Italian. In the days of google translate generally no problem, but a guide to the house and info about the local area in English would be a good addition. The gas, electric and local taxes were paid at the end of the stay and a schedule of unit costs in the house would have helped us prepare for departure. Stayed off season. The house has everything we needed. Unfortunately weather wasn't great and perhaps the layout isn't ideal if the weather isn't nice as the communal sitting area has just one sofa, there were lots of other seats, but not of the comfy variety. There is a pool, but it is closed at this time of year so can't comment on that. So excellent house, and helpful owner would be 5 stars, but a few minor niggles

Easy access to the beach, easy walk around the point to Punta Secca village with the iconic Faro, restaurants and shops, and of course the house used to film Montalbano's home in fictional Marinella. The bungalow was pleasant, a bit basic but had all we needed for a memorable stay. Secure garden gate and on-site parking a bit plus. 2 hours by car to Siracusa or Valle di Templi.

The listing was accurate in every detail, everywhere sparkling clean and beautifully kept. Lovely towels and bed linen and a fully equipped kitchen. Claudio, Viviana and Susan were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome with wine, fruit, and a basket full of local products (not to mention food in the cupboard and mineral water, fruit juice and milk in the fridge) We spent two weeks exploring the ancient sites, Baroque towns and fabulous beaches in the area. The weather was glorious, the beaches were mostly empty and the sea was warm enough for swimming. At the end of the day it was great to come back and sit outside with a glass of wine and enjoy the warm evening. It was like summer only better! We would have no hesitation in recommending this house and hope to come back ourselves one day. Thank you Claudio, Viviana and Susan for a wonderful holiday experience in such a beautiful place.
