Taste the flavours of the Mediterranean at Villa Camerina, a contemporary villa in Sicily with fruit trees in its beautifully landscaped gardens. Originally part of Marchesi di Ganzeria estate, a noble Sicilian family's 20 hectares of unspoilt countryside were the original hunting reserve. You’re close to the beaches and baroque towns of southeast Sicily, but you may not want to leave the grounds, which feature a private pool, tennis court and swings.

This holiday villa accommodates twelve guests in six double bedrooms, all with private bathrooms in adjoining, inter-connected apartments. The open-plan living area is light-filled and airy with a beamed cathedral-style ceiling. Each apartment has modern décor 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 barbecue al fresco.

Just 3 km from Punta Secca, a charming fishing village in the Ragusa province, Villa Camerina is a short drive from golden sandy beaches and rocky cliffs. Enjoy the region’s specialties, including Ragusano cheese, ricotta ravioli and homemade cavati.

Travel to Villa Camerina from the Comiso airport (20 km), Pozzallo ferry (15 km) or Ragusa train station (20 km).

Punta Secca is, 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.

The Province of Ragusa stretches 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 with Ragusa, Modica and Scicli particularly lovely to visit. 

The pretty seaside resort of Marina di Ragusa is 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 the River 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.

The Hyblaean 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.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a professional chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs.

From peeling the spuds to helping with the service, our chefs will ensure you have the most relaxing – and definitely the most delicious – holiday you can dream of.
