A comfortable family villa in the countryside not far from Ragusa...

Located in the picturesque countryside close to the baroque town of Ragusa, Villa Lausa is delightful, modern and sophisticated in design with some traditional features. The smart pool area surrounded by age-old olive and carob tree and lawned gardens is perfect to sink into to soak up the sunshine or watch the orange hues of the sunset.

Each of the four guest bedrooms are decorated to a high standard, featuring neutral tones and just a splash of colour. Accompanied by exposed brick walls and sloping beam ceilings, the rooms are sleek and stylish, yet comfortable. The kitchen is finished to an exceptional standard, opening out onto the gardens, and the living areas are beautifully presented continuing the theme from the bedrooms, with unique traditional features dotted around.

Villa Lausa is ideal for families and friends, and is placed perfectly to explore the plethora of history in the surrounding areas. Ragusa and Modica are close by, offering a variety of shops, beautiful architecture and superb cuisine, or head to the excellent beaches of Sampieri, Punta Secca or Marina di Ragusa for a spot of sunbathing.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

One of the eight towns in the Val di Noto world heritage site, Ragusa is set amidst two deep valleys, Cava San Leonardo and Cava Santa Domenica. Split into two parts, the modern town is perched higher on the hillside whilst the picturesque old town Ragusa Ibla is lower down the hillside, filled with baroque architecture and narrow cobbles streets. Also in the old town visit the Church of San Giovani. Ragusa is also particularly famed for its gastronomy and produces some excellent cheeses.

LOCAL BEACHES

Marina di Ragusa
A very popular large beach with golden sand and clear waters. There are numerous facilities along the beach including sunloungers and parasols for hire.

Vendicari, Noto
In the heart of Vendicari Nature Reserve lies an 8km stretch of golden sand dunes, lagoons, cliffs and hidden bays. There are no sunloungers, bars or water sports and no crowds. A truly wonderful place to swim and well-suited to families but be sure to take anything you might need including water with you.

San Lorenzo

A favourite beach in this area as it is stunning with beautiful clear, turquiose water and a gently shelving sandy beach which is great for families. Head for the section that is not owned by a particular hotel or resort, where there is a beach hut serving ice cream and drinks. This beach does get busy in peak season.

FESTIVALS

Infiorata di Noto, Noto - May
Italy’s best-known flower festival sees one of the baroque town’s main streets, Via Nicolaci, carpeted with a series of flower tapestries. The day after the festival finishes children enjoy running through the petals scattering them in all directions.

THINGS TO SEE & DO

Val di Noto
Drive around the late baroque towns of the Val di Noto. The valley holds a series of picturesque towns composed almost entirely of baroque churches, palaces and house - a must see for architectural and historical enthusiasts.

Villa Romana del Casale, Piazza Armerina
