The Experience

Filippo and Marta’s vision to create a relaxed eco-retreat has been realised: float from infinity pool with valley and sea views to the sauna or Turkish bath before zipping out for dinner at a local restaurant. Return to sit on the veranda, chat to fellow guests and sip tea or a cocktail prepared with fresh herbs and aromatic plants from the garden.

You sleep in simple, elegant bedrooms split over two floors with sofa beds for children. Each has a semi-private balcony or terrace facing the views for morning coffee or evening sundowners. Breakfast is a treat: just-picked fruit from the garden, local cheeses and meats, home-buzzed honey. Filippo is an excellent cook and will prepare lunch with notice plus there’s a communal kitchen to rustle up your own meals.

Tear yourself away and visit historic Ragusa (10 mins), the caves at Cava d’Ispica, sandy beaches, vineyards, olive oil producers and quaint fishing villages.

The neighbourhood

There are a handful of restaurants within 10km, from gourmet to rustic, plus a very good pizzeria and the owners have a comprehensive list. Head to Ragusa (10-minute drive) for shops, bars, bakeries and a market. Its old town, Ibla, is a glorious jumble of baroque palazzi set around a handsome square. Scicli and Modica, also gorgeous, are a bit further. Visit Marzamemi for lunch on the coast.

Filippo Moriconi

Filippo is Tuscan and Marta grew up in nearby Ragusa but they met while working in Rome. In 2018, wanting to escape the city, they bought a plot of land and renovated what was a run-down building. With sustainability in mind they installed solar and PV panels, manage rainwater collection, adopt a plastic-free approach and aim to be self-sufficient. Filippo loves to cook and Marta is the gardener.
