The sandy beach of Marina di Ragusa is just a 10-minute walk away and there are many other beaches along the coast (including Donnalucata, Cava d’Aliga, Punta Secca and Sampieri) that are a short drive away. The beaches in the area of Marina di Ragusa have received several consecutive “Bandiere Blu”, attesting to the cleanliness of the water and their general ecological excellence. The beach also has a nice promenade filled with beach front restaurants and cafes.
From the villa, you can explore the UNESCO World Heritage town of Ragusa. Ragusa is a gastronomic hub with several Michelin-starred restaurants and just one of several stunning baroque pearls in the area. An easy drive will take you to Modica, Scicli and Noto. Another architectural curiosity in the area is the fantastical Castello di Donnafugata. Siracusa, infused in Greek heritage, is also within easy driving distance as are the quiet beaches of the Nature Reserve at Vendicari. Piazza Armerina and its world famous UNESCO World Heritage Site of Villa Romana del Casale with its stunning mosaics is also just over an hour’s drive away.
