Piazza Duomo 36 This property has been verified by our local team in Sicily Apartments in Sicily in Ragusa

Description

Boasting the best location in town, this traditional 5-bedroom apartment is situated right in the heart of the extraordinary town of Ragusa Ibla. Step straight out into the town’s main square, a stunning piazza that sits in the shadow of the Duomo di San Giorgio. With an excellent selection of sandy beaches just 20km away, the apartment is ideal for groups of friends or several families who want to mix and match days on the beach with exploring the baroque towns and countryside of south east Sicily.

The entrance to the apartment is in the main Piazza Duomo. The décor is classically Sicilian, with cool stone and marble flooring, hand-painted ceilings and antique furniture and rugs. The apartment is essentially divided into two. The main apartment, on the first floor, has a reception, a large living room, a dining room and kitchen. There is also a small outside space with a table and chairs which is ideal for breakfast. Four of the five double bedrooms are on this floor, two with balconies that look straight out over the main piazza, and each of the bedrooms has an en suite bathroom.

A beautifully tiled flight of stairs leads to the upper floor which comprises a mini apartment with a living room and kitchen, a double bedroom with shower and a terrace. This can be booked as an extra, sleeping a total of 10 people, when additional space is required. Smaller parties of 4 people can take advantage of an under-occupancy rate which offers the main apartment with two bedrooms (with balconies).

Additional features at Piazza Duomo 36 include access to a Spa situated just a short walk from the apartment.

The area

Ragusa is split into two quite distinct areas: Ragusa Superiore, the more modern upper part of town which was re-built after the 1693 earthquake; and Ragusa Ibla, the more atmospheric of the two. Dominated by the gloriously baroque Duomo di San Giorgio (read about Saint George celebration >>), Ragusa Ibla is a mass of narrow lanes and alleyways, of elaborately-sculpted balconies and big views over the countryside beyond. There are numerous palazzi and churches to visit but essentially, this is the best place we know for an evening ‘passeggiata’, for dinner at one of the many restaurants and for people-watching with a gelato. Local events include the Estate Iblea, a summer festival of music and events, and in October, a festival of busking and street entertainment, ‘Ibla Buskers’.

For more baroque architecture, visit the towns of Modica and Scicli or head north to Palazzolo Acreide which has several magnificent churches and an important archaeological area. Syracuse is around 1.5 hours by car, and well worth the journey.

When you need a break from all this baroque beauty, make your way south to the beach. Punta Secca is the site of the beachfront home of the fictional TV detective Montalbano and has a very pleasant beach or choose from the wide sandy beaches at Pozzallo, Donnalucata or Sampieri.

Giuseppe A.
10-02-2018 -

Ho avuto il piacere di passare tre giorni a Ragusa Ibla a ridosso di capodanno con la mia famiglia. Non conoscevo il posto e sono rimasto ammaliato dalla ricchezza culturale ed enogastronomica di Ibla. Visitare la città a piedi è più facile se si parte da un punto centralissimo come Piazza Duomo 36. Se a questo si aggiunge la bellezza e l'eleganza funzionale delle stanze e la cortesia e la disponibilità di Claudia e suo marito, gli host, esce fuori il mix per una vacanza perfetta. Assolutamente consigliato.
