Neo-Baroque and country chic: Sicily c/o Tenuta Cammarana
Three reasons why you'll love it here
- Neo-baroque elegance just beyond the walls of Ragusa
- The sun-drenched landscapes of rural Sicily
- One of the most beautiful parks in the whole of Italy
Tenuta Cammarana occupies a commanding position on the high plain of Ibleo, half way between the baroque city of Ragusa and the beach at Puntasecca.
Set amidst splendid, sun-baked landscapes scattered with ancient olive and carob trees, and within minutes of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, this ancient period residence represents the very essence of Sicily.
When the Sicilian nobility move to the country
Constructed as if to defend the silence reigning over Tenuta Cammarana, the building's high perimeter walls can be seen for miles beyond the boundaries of the large Sicilian farming estate which surrounds the property.
With its pretty inner courtyards and fragrant gardens the residence combines the elegance of Ragusa's baroque palaces and the simple charm of Ibleo's traditional rural residences to perfection
The property was built as a hunting lodge, in 1778, for Sortino Trono family, one of Sicily's most influential aristocratic families. More than 200 years later, his descendents have opened the doors of their elegant country home to holidaymakers who seek a special and truly authentic Sicilian retreat.
Country chic, boutique baroque
Guest accommodation is provided in wonderfully romantic bedrooms, all of which feature a pleasing combination of priceless antiques and the simple wooden furniture typical of this part of Sicily.The sensitive integration of modern technology guarantees maximum comfort whilst conserving all of the rooms old world charm.
The fruits of the fertile black soil of Ibleo
For centuries Tenuta Cammarana has been an important agricultural estate, employing generations of local people. Today, the olive groves, carob tree plantations, orchards and vegetable gardens continue to be cared for with the same dedication as in years past.
DOP cheese from Ragusa, extra virgin olive oil, carob flour (an ingredient which is never absent from any Sicilian pastry chef's kitchen!) and prickly pears are available for purchase in the farm shop
Close to the River Irminio and Pino d'Aleppo Nature Reserves and a mere 6kms away from the splendid beaches of Puntasecca and Marina di Ragusa, Tenuta Cammarana is a confirmed favorite amongst lovers of both the Sicilian countryside and the Mediterranean Sea.
Tenuta Cammarana is the first Sicilian property to be included in the "Il Parco Piu Bello": a prestigious national network of parks and gardens
