Villa La Ganza, a newly built villa in Sicily perched hillside on the site of the Marquis of Ganzeria’s old hunting lodge, offers incredible views of the southern coastline, from the lighthouse of Punta Secca to Capo Bianco. The large swimming pool is perfectly positioned for the panoramic vista, and guests can use the outdoor kitchen to prepare a delicious al fresco meal. With a tennis court, hot tub room and complimentary welcome pack, you’ll feel pampered.
This holiday villa’s décor is magnificent, with modern furnishings that blend with the landscape. All six bedrooms have luxurious private bathrooms and air conditioning. Bi-folding glass doors along one side of villa make the most of the property’s breathtaking views. Dine in the fully equipped kitchen or a more formal dining area.
The villa’s location in Santa Croce Camerina means an easy drive to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Ragusa, Modic and Scicli, famous for their Baroque architecture. You’ll want to spend time on the golden sandy beaches of Punta Secca, a charming fishing village. The owner can help you organise sailing, wine tasting and other tours too.
Villa la Ganza is 20 km from the Comiso airport or Ragusa train station.

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.
