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

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).

The house is equipped with everything you could ever possibly need. He is a truly amazing host providing not only local produce but his own home grown lemons, olive oil and wine. The villa is in a very beatiful location. Right on the sea front yet a short stroll into the village along the promenade. The surrounding towns and village range from beatiful costal resorts to stunning architecture. All the locals are as hospitable as Georgio. We had an amazing holiday and it was so much more than we had expected. We have already booked to come back again next year.

All three bedrooms have stunning ensuite bathrooms and the living area is spacious and light. Large sliding doors open out onto a patio creating a huge indoor outdoor living space. This leads onto a beautiful swimming pool. We were greeted by the owners brother who ensured that we were well settled an had everything we needed. We would highly recommend this property.

Everything you could need is provided including kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, a stereo and tv. Basic ingredients (tea, coffee, oil, salt pepper etc) were available as were maps and guidebooks. There is good information about the town and recommendations for local restaurants which we followed and agreed with. There is a very reasonably priced supermarket a short walk away. The apartment is in the heart of the old town and staying here feels very authentic and off the beaten track - you are surrounded by local people living their daily lives. It was quiet and secluded with glorious views. The terrace has views of Chiesa San Giorgio as well as the old town. Air Con works well. There was a problem with the water when we first arrived (outwith the owner's control) but it was quickly resolved with a personal and attentive service. We would stay here again and would recommend it to friends. The apartment provided excellent value for money and the owner was easy to contact and deal with. Key collection was very easy - the best we have experienced as there was no need to agree a strict time in advance and end up standing around waiting. Fantastic holiday.
