DESCRIPTION OF THE LOCALITY
Ragusa is placed in the south-eastern side of Sicily, nearly 100 Km away from Catania. Land full of art and sun, the youngest of the Sicilian provinces boasts the largest number of sites acknowledged as heritage of mankind by UNESCO…baroque art, uncontaminated nature, archaeological areas,traditions and unique flavours represent an historical and cultural reference of the utmost interest. Situated along a spur in the rock between two deep gorges, Ragusa is a city with two souls: Ragusa Superiore characterized by its modern aspect and Ibla, the most ancient core where sculptors and artists inserted - with unexpected harmony - baroque masterpieces into the classical medieval plant originating a urban landscape unique all around the world.
The imposing Duomo di San Giorgio (Saint Georges Cathedral) with its magnificent late-baroque façade predominates while all around it is an interlacement of alleys, courtyards and short flights of steps in which letting oneself get lost and go together with hosts, dragons and masks supporting astonishing balconies and decorating the prospects of elegant mansions and splendid churches. In the outskirts: il Castello di Donnafugata (the Castle of Donnafugata), exemplary aristocratic residence tracing back to the second half of the 19th century, la Cava d Ispica (the Quarry of Ispica), archeological site testifying the evolution of human settlements from the pre-historical era up to almost the present days; Marina di Ragusa, seaside-locality with long beaches of very fine golden sand and very good night-clubs.
Modica is 15 Km away, Scicli is 25 Km away, Pozzallo (links to Malta) is 30 Km away, Noto is 45 Km away, Vendicari is 45 Km away, Siracusa is 75 Km away, Catania is 105 Km away, Caltagirone is 60 Km away, Piazza Armerina is 90 Km away, Agrigento is 120 Km away.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPERTY
The silhouette of Villa Camarana, noble residence of the eighteenth century, proudly raises inside of the mild countryside of Ragusa. There… the still rural landscape - propped up by carob, olive and almond trees and by an infinite theory of low dried-walls - contrasts to the intriguing atmospheres of the nearby baroque towns such as Ragusa-Ibla, Modica and Noto. The magnificent farm-house, looking onto a well-maintained garden ornamented with palms, agaves and lots of bougainvillea, is the ideal accommodation for those ones who are looking for warm old-fashion environments evocating the typical Sicilian aristocratic lifestyle of past times. Just like it used to be at those times, ascending the external staircase you reach the piano nobile looking onto the wide panoramic terrace where your eye spaces as far as to the sea disappearing at the horizon. En plein air moments - meant to be spent between dinners, idleness and dining under the stars - alternate to more intimate moments to spend inside the dwelling which is characterized by visible timbered ceilings, pavements made out of pitch stone and upholstered with decorations and by ancient furnishings of sober elegance. The large living-dining room is the trait d union with the other rooms: on one side two parallel entrances lead to the kitchen and to one double bedroom with
connected bathroom while on the other side of the same living room there is the entrance to another double bedroom (accessible also from the terrace). In this double room, embellished by an ancient fireplace and provided with private bathroom, as in a game of Chinese boxes a further single bedroom opens wide.
