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.

By day 3 we had all fallen completely in love with Baglio San Filippo. It was like having a holiday in the country mansion of an ancient great uncle, or on the set of The Leopard. Certainly one is surrounded by the history of the owning family, various branches of which have owned it for close to 3 centuries. The present owner/descendant, though living in Catania, and her cousin (who lives in the village), could not have been more helpful or friendly and were always able to advise and guide us, including arranging for a delightful cook and cleaner. We were a large party with plenty of children, all of whom loved the grounds and pool and the beach at Sampieri (about 20 minutes away). The adults became completely intoxicated by the house and by the area. Southern Sicily does that. Modica has to be the most beautifully crumbling baroque town of all of them, though Ragusa, Scicli and Noto are all obligatory for first-time visitors. This year we also discovered Pozzalo, present in no guide books nor websites but another faded gem, flaunting every degree of its lower-than-Tunis latitude. I would have given Baglio San Filippo 5 stars but for the quibbles at the start of this review, but in truth, how can one rate a stay in a historical timewarp? It is glorious, and we will return, if the friendly ghosts which inhabit the old drawing room will have us.

Every kitchen press he opened held another surprise. Thank you, Giorgio. The house itself is equipped with everything you need, and, just as shown in the photos, there are beautiful views of the Giorgio's small vineyard overlooking the sea from the front sun room. Temperatures were in the low 30s when we visited, but the house was comfortably cool, with air conditioning in all of the bedrooms. Location is perfect: Marina di Modica about 10 mins walk away on one side and the exceptional beach of Sampieri about 20 mins by foot on the other. We travelled mostly on the bikes Giorgio had kindly provided for our family of 5 ... 2 bikes gratis, and the other 3 for a very nominal fee. All in all, a fantastic rental, and we would definitely visit again. Gracie, Giorgio! Brendan and family (Ireland)

We were met by Michele and his family who were helpful and friendly throughout our stay. The house has everything needed and was clean and comfortable. The garden and the pool are the special part of the accommodation. The pool is bigger than it looks in some of the photos and our two young boys learnt to swim in it! There is plenty of space in the garden and is a great space to play and relax in. One slight point against is the road was a bit closer than we were expecting, but wasn't too busy and in no way did it spoil our holiday. The area itself is wonderful, with so many different options. All the local baroque towns are worth a visit and are spoilt for choice with the number of beaches. We would strongly recommend this property and would love to come back.
