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).

A haven

5 of 5
Such a relaxing place to stay and Kaethe was a gracious and thoughtful host. We were warmly welcomed and made to feel instantly at home. She was on hand to help but discreet so you felt the place was yours to enjoy. The children loved making lemonade from the lemons growing in her garden. All in all, a very happy few days. Highly recommend Kaethe and Casa Linde!

Like relaxing on an ocean liner

5 of 5
This villa is really wonderful set in a high-walled private garden awash with Spring blossoms. To the rear is the sea just a few steps from the veranda. It's like being aboard an ocean liner floating in the Mediterranean Sea. The tranquility of birds singing and sea lapping is truly wonderful and relaxing. Swimming in the sea daily was so amazing especially as the house has an outside shower tucked away behind shrubs. This house is huge and there are so many places to eat both inside and out that you can select a new area for every meal. There's even a giant roof terrace which is a sun trap all day. An archeological park is 3 minutes up the road with buildings on the beach as well as in the tree shaded park. For Montalbano fans, his beachside house is 500m away along the beach. And all around there are Baroque towns used as further backdrops to the show. All glorious and totally beautiful. I didn't want to leave but someone else had booked in after me. I just wanted to stay. Some evenings the full moon sat above the sea making it glisten with silver light. The terrace was even warm all night. A tremendous place to relax by the Mediterranean.
