The Experience

Arrow slits for sea views remain – but with the bandits long gone, Baron di Belmonte turned the thick walls of this coastal watchtower into a holiday retreat. Today it feels almost English, as oak, ash and poplar mix with figs, lemons and prickly pears. Manicured lawns are punctuated by palm and olive trees – one is 400 years old! – while the pool and play area are discreetly tucked away. There’s plenty of space to wander, picking tomatoes, exploring polytunnels, touring the olive groves and vineyards of this organic working farm. Inside, divergent living and dining rooms are pleasantly and comfortably furnished: deep pink furnishings here, the carved side of a Sicilian cart there, perhaps an antique armoire. Three of the seven bedrooms divide onto mezzanine floors reached by staircases with wrought-iron railings, while three have kitchenettes ideal for picnic-making. They host cookery classes so the food is good, and the locals pop by for homemade pasta, local sausage, fish of the day – all delicious. For anything else, delightful Francesca, Sonia and Antonella are at hand. A heart-warming place.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Francesco Pluchinotta

  • La Moresca restaurant uses organic products and oil from Natura Iblea. One of the most important organic farm in south east of Sicily.
  • Each room takes its name from the refined wines produced by the Cantina Marabino. We can arrange wine tastings and wine tours for our guests.
  • The ancient tower is in a strategic location. From Torre Marabino you can visit Ragusa Ibla, Modica, Scicli, Siracusa, Noto and the most beautiful beaches of the south-eastern of Sicily.
  • One of the most important airport in Sicily is Catania airport. It connects with all Europe and world. Another one is Comiso airport, smaller than Catania, but interesting regarding the position inside Ragusa area.
  • Pool open from April to October (depending on weather conditions)
  • La Moresca restaurant satisfies the needs of every diner. Upon request, we prepare gluten free dishes, vegetarian menus with vegetables produced by our farm, and even baby menus.
