Ragusa

Magnificent historical Baglio, built in the 19th century and immersed in the Noto Valley, UNESCO world heritage site.

This magnificent historical Sicilian Baglio (a term which refers to a fortified farmhouse with courtyard) is fully immersed in the characteristic countryside of Ragusa, allowing the guest to enjoy the intense fragrances, dense colours and unique scenery. Towards sunset, the atmosphere becomes enchanting; the fiery-red Sicilian sun paints all the scenes as though on canvas, warming the heart and soul of those lucky enough to stay in this mystical place. The tastefully renovated house has maintained and enhanced its original charm; the imposing stone walls bears witness to its history and transmit all their energy to the guests. A perfect place in which to delight your senses and meditate leaving behind the routine of everyday life. Privileged rest for the mind and body.

Property details

The villa develops around the characteristic central courtyard which gives access to the ground floor, to the garden and to the swimming pool area. The ground floor of the villa, which covers almost 300m2, features high vaults that bear witness to the imposing and sober architecture of the ancient warehouses of the Sicilian countryside. The ancient "carrittaria" (cart room) has been converted into a spacious living area with dining room, kitchen and sitting room. The 3 bedrooms, set in high bare stone vaults, can accommodate up to 10 people. The first large suite has a double bed and a comfortable large sofa bed for two; in the second suite, there is a double bed on the ground floor and another double bed on the mezzanine floor; in the third there is a double four poster bed. Each has its own en-suite bathroom. On this floor there is also a large bathroom for physically disabled guests. From the secret garden, a stone staircase gives access to the main floor of the house. A large panoramic terrace that looks onto the meadows and the sea to the south gives access to the Baron's house. The apartment gives the opportunity to alternate reading and conversation in the fireplace room with lunches in the elegant dining room. Three spacious double bedrooms and three bathrooms join the rustic Sicilian style kitchen. On the opposite side, a long north facing terrace allows to enjoy relaxing moments with a view of the dry walls and the countryside north of the villa.

Surrounding Area

Ragusa

The property is located in the area of Ragusa halfway between the town and the marina. It is an ideally located for exploring the magnificent beaches in the area such as Kamarina, Marina di Ragusa, Playa Grande, Pozzallo, Donnalucata and Punto Secca. The baroque towns of Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Ispica and Palazzolo Acreide are just a short drive away. A little further afield is Noto and the Vendicari nature reserve and an hour drive gets you to Siracusa, Ortigia and Caltagirone. We highly recommend excursions to Castello di Donnafugata and the lakes of the Cavagrande di Cassibile river as well-they are just too good to miss!
