Each room has modern decor and furnishings and features an independent air conditioning/heating system for your comfort no matter the season. The delightful pergola by the pool and the covered terrace are the perfect places to enjoy BBQ al fresco.

Punta Seccais, a small village in the Province of Ragusa, the most beautiful part of the south-eastern coast of Sicily and the ideal place to spend your holiday. It features golden sandy beaches and rocky cliffs and is the hometown of Inspector Montalbano in the TV series “Il Commissario Montalbano”.
Punta Secca is a typical fishing village, originally an old Arab port, which faces the African Sea. It has wonderful sunny weather: not too hot in summer and a mild climate in the winter months. Autumn and spring are particularly pleasant as most holidaymakers have left and the seaside villages become peaceful and quiet.
The golden sandy beaches of Punta Secca are all free of charge and safe, and are surrounded by low cliffs on the West and on the East. The old white lighthouse, built with dry stone at the beginning of the last century, towers over the village.
TheProvince of Ragusastretches out from the plateau to the sea and beautiful carob and almond trees dominate the landscape.The local cuisine is exquisite: the freshest ricotta ravioli; home-made cavati with tomato and meat sauce; aspic made with locally-raised pork; Valle dell'Acate artisan wines; and, most famously, ”Ragusano” cheese, made from raw cow's milk using age-old techniques and traditional wood and copper tools.
Religious festivals are plentiful and a terrific opportunity for experiencing important traditions with participation particularly evident during the feast days in honour of the Patron Saint, Christmas and Easter.
There are many cultural and prestigious events that take place in Ragusa including classical theatre performances at the Greek Theater of Syracuse, the International Music Show “Ibla Grand Prize”, and the Wine & Food Event “Cheese Art” (just to name a few).
The Province of Ragusa has recently been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List for its precious Baroque-style buildings. The whole are is bursting at the seams with architectural, archaeological and naturalistic treasures withRagusa, ModicaandScicliparticularly lovely to visit.
The pretty seaside resort ofMarina di Ragusais just 5 km away and has a range of services and facilities available including banks, post offices, restaurants, bars and sport facilities.
About 6 km away on the coast is theRiver Irminio Nature Reserve, a Mediterranean estuary oasis. The area around the river mouth has wonderful sandy beaches and is a fantastic place for bird-watching. Approximately 3 km west from Punta Secca is Randello Beach, 3 km of golden sand backed by the Randello Forest Reserve a beautiful spot for a picnic.
TheHyblaean Mountains, characterized by deep “gorges” and wild Mediterranean undergrowth, are populated with rare species and are best explored on horseback. Also nearby is the must-visit “Cava d'Ispica” Park, a deep canyon housing a paleo-Christian catacomb.
