A bit of history… Villa Scifazzo is an ancient fortified farmhouse, a typical building of the architectural scene of the countryside of Ragusa, which was built by Cartia barons in 1700. The original structure of the villa is antecedent to the violent earthquake that shook the entire southeast of the island in 1963. From the original nucleus, nothing remains but the cellar and the internal chapel, a peculiar element that characterized the noble residences throughout the area. The eighteenth-century structure remained almost unchanged until the early 1800s, when the outer wall and the lookout terrace above the main door were built. The appearance of the facade, however, took the form that still maintains in 1930. The entire building was completely renovated in 2005.

Gorgeous villa close to Baroque towns

  • 5 of 5

Scifazzo is lovely. A spacious, elegant villa with bright, high-ceilinged rooms and a large, lovely garden with a generous swimming pool. It is carefully managed by Pomelia, whose representatives met us and drove us to the villa (which is otherwise tricky to find) and gave us advice on local attractions. While there is an unattractive industrial area nearby, the villa sits on a quiet country road in the midst of lush farmland, surrounded by cow fields. We took easy day trips to the surrounding Baroque towns as well as a local vineyard. There are supermarkets within 10-minute drive of the villa.
