About the property

Villa with private pool, private garden and Wi-Fi connection.

Former residence of a Sicilian aristocratic family, set in the Sicilian countryside, just 6 km from Dubrovnik, Villa Sortino Trono offers in addition to the main house of the nineteenth century, free Wi-Fi and a large garden with lawn with a swimming pool and children playground.

Furnished in an elegant style and with a delicate taste that deserves a home of the genre and features stone floors pitch and a double bedroom with "tiles" of Caltagirone, the house situated on the upper floor consists of a kitchen that reflects the style ancient Sicilian kitchens with oven stone paved by "tiles", the basin also in stone with copper taps, all filled kitchen, refrigerator and appliances such as microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine and the latest generation dishwasher. It continues with the Entrance Hall where we will welcome you upon your arrival with a welcome drink with a buffet tasting of typical local prettamenti products, ranging from sweet to savory to the local wine.

A large dining room outfitted with satellite TV and Hi-Fi system and DVD player, brings us to the red lounge, where important meetings took place at the time. The three bedrooms have satellite TV with complimentary toiletries, towels, classic wooden furniture and mobile air fans.

The full bath with shower, complimentary shower gel and shampoo, phone hairdryer.

The house is surrounded by 50 hectares of land with views of the hinterland Ragusa and Mount Etna, from the classic "dry stone walls" of Ragusa campaign that divided the possessions from one landowner to another. On the ground floor there are four large courtyards, a church where until a few years ago took place the usual Sunday Mass and a 18,000 square meter park with an age-old maritime pine over 30 meters surrounded by plants and Sicilian fruit trees such as almonds, walnuts and pistachios. One of the four courtyards under the house leads first to a room and two bathrooms in the pool area service, then right at the garden with a 13x7m swimming pool with Jacuzzi, with blue sun beds to lie down and sunbathe comfortably, a gazebo if necessary, where to have lunch or dinner or even converse, and lots of games to entertain both inside and outside the pool in the meadow children.

Offering free parking, the Villa is located first of all as mentioned 6 km from Dubrovnik (5 minutes by car), 7 km from the airport of Comiso, 150 meters a farm that offers dishes such as cottage cheese, sausage, provola Ragusa, local wine and many other delicacies. At 500 meters the restaurant and pizzeria "At the court of Bacchus" and above 1 km shopping center ibleo IperCoop with supermarket, newsagent, clothes and souvenirs. Continuing between the Baroque UNESCO heritage city, the Villa is 10 minutes from Ragusa, the "Vigata" Montalbano, a 20 minute drive from Modica and Scicli and the nearest beaches, located in Marina di Ragusa and Punta Secca, the "Marinella" Montalbano "and 5 km from the Castle of Donnafugata, where you can see the famous collection of the family" of Arezzo Trefiletti "belonged to our great-grandfather. Syracuse and Noto are 45 minutes away by car. The Catania airport is 100 km.

About the Inspector Montalbano, almost an entire episode was filmed inside the Villa, "The Cat and the Goldfinch".

Ideal for families with children, young couples or friends who want to spend their holidays together.

Beautiful villa, a step back in time

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful peaceful villa, warm hospitality, elegantly restored on the outside whilst retaining traditional character inside. Great pool, good location for visiting most of south east Sicily. One of the owners lives on the ground floor, but unless you seek him out you wouldn't know, your privacy is respected. Will definitely be back.

Sun Kissed Villa in Sicily

  • 5 of 5

As a family of four we spent a fantastic two weeks at Villa Sortino Trono. This charming old farmhouse stands in its own enormous grounds surrounded by countryside, and yet the supermarket and shops of Ragusa are five minutes’ drive away. The walled garden which houses the pool was perfect for taking it easy, with lots of sunbeds and seating and shady trees. If you wanted the beach, Punta Secca or Punta Scoglitti are both 25 minutes away with nice golden sand and there are plenty of beautiful baroque towns and villages to explore along the way. A big thank you to Giovanni and his family who looked after us, supplied us with home grown figs, lemons and lemon tea and even bought me a locally made cake for my birthday! I would certainly recommend the villa for families and we would happily return ourselves another year.

Beautiful and special villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent two amazing weeks at the villa with our three children (14, 13, 10 years). The villa offers an exclusive and secluded base to explore the surrounding baroque towns (e.g. Ragusa Ibla, Modica) and stunning sandy beaches (e.g. Punta Secca, Sampieri, Marina di Ragusa) all within 35 minute radius. We also loved tonsimply laze at the beautiful pool. The children were delighted with the use of many pool toys and inflatables. The owners, Giovanni and his family, were very attentive and kind. The villa is clean, well maintained and fully equipped with all you could need to make you feel at home, The close shopping centre is very handy. The sun rises and sun sets are unforgettable; the old church remains and the big tree add to the retreat experience. The gentle breeze is very welcome in the summer heat. It can be windy at night as it is high on a mountain, so bring warm clothing! We highly recommend this villa for families and others who are seeking a luxurious and relaxing holiday in a private setting. Thank you Giovanni for a most memorable holiday

Authentieke villa, gastvrije ontvangst

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben genoten van ons verblijf in Villa Sortino Trono. We hebben met drie volwassenen en twee jonge kinderen een week in de villa verbleven.

De ontvangst door Antionio, Giovanni en hun moeder was erg hartelijk met Siciliaanse hapjes en wijn. Antonio vertelt graag over de geschiedenis van zijn familie, de villa en de omgeving. Het is jammer dat je niet zonder begeleiding van het park gebruik kunt maken. Het uitzicht over de wijde omgeving vanaf de bergrug is spectaculair. Er is echter genoeg plek om je vrij te kunnen bewegen, vooral rondom het mooie zwembad.

De inrichting van de villa is met veel authentieke details en geschiedenis van de familie. Wel oppassen met kinderen die graag willen rennen dus. De drie slaapkamers liggen in elkaars verlengde; om in de achterste slaapkamer te komen moet je door de andere twee lopen.

Let op dat in de beschrijving twee badkamers worden genoemd. Hiervan is er maar een in de villa zelf, de andere is bij het zwembad. Ook noemt de beschrijving een vaatwasser, deze is er niet.

Wij bevelen de villa en de familie Sortino Trono van harte aan, en zouden graag nog een keer terugkomen.

très bon séjour

  • 5 of 5

Antonio nous a réservé un très bon accueil et a été aux petits soins avec nous pendant notre séjour d une semaine avec 2 enfants. La maison est très jolie et ne manque de rien. Nous avons même pu profiter de la piscine a la fin du mois d octobre! La situation est idéale a côté de nombreux sites d intérêt touristiques.

Très belle propriété, grand domaine, calme, très bien située, accueil chaleureux

  • 5 of 5

Séjourner une semaine au sein de la villa Sortino a été un ravissement. Après un accueil très chaleureux et la découverte de produits gastronomiques locaux organisée par Antonio et sa maman, nous avons apprécié chaque jour au sein de cet ancien palais aux décors d'époque et proposant une grande piscine très agréable. La villa est très grande, salon, bureau, salle à manger, plusieurs chambres et une belle terrasse. Facile d'accès, Villa Sortino est également extrèmement bien située, à proximité de Ragusa ainsi que des centres commerciaux, et permet de profiter pleinement des visites culturelles entre villes perchées et la mer: Donnafugata, Modica, Chiaramonte Gulfi et les belles plages de Sampieri. Nous avons aimé les restaurants Majore et Mystic Pizza. Si vous découvrez la Sicile, nous vous recommandons vivement de séjourner à Villa Sortino et Antonio qui est empathique et connaît parfaitement sa région vous guidera dans vos choix de visites avec plaisir.
