Villa Hyblea

A long avenue bordered with monumental olive trees heralds your arrival on this wonderful estate consisting of 40 hectares of ancient olive groves in the foothills of the Hyblaean hills. At its heart is a grand country villa, known as a masseria in Sicily, surrounded by an immaculate garden. The building dates back to the 18th Century and a family of Sicilian aristocrats; now fully restored, fusing the fascination for the traditional with fabulous contemporary touches, like the huge lava stone swimming pool.
Architectural and oenogastronomical tours of the region alternate with sunset walks among the olive groves or long swims in the 24x5m pool. Airy salons, a large gallery and cosy living room with fireplace provide just some of the spacious indoor areas where to escape the warmest hours during summer, including typical Mediterranean afternoon naps. All of the seven bedrooms are infact suites with king-sized beds, ensuite baths and lounge rooms, including double sofa-bed and kitchenette.
Villa Hyblea is just a 20 minute drive from Ragusa Ibli, the most magnificent of the Sicilian Baroque towns including Scicli and Modica, protected by the UNESCO World Heritage. It’s also about 30 minutes drive from the sea: choose between the organised beaches of Punta Secca and Marina di Ragusa, or the wild beaches of the Cava Randello nature reserve. For agolf enthusiasts and foodies the famous Donnafugata Resort & Spa is a mere 20 minutes drive.
