Hidden in the gently rolling hills of Noto, amidst the enchanting southeastern Sicilian countryside, is set Country House Villadorata. An exclusive and charming residence on a 16-hectare estate planted with century-old olive and citrus trees and organic vineyards.
Owner Cristina Summe was inspired by this originally 18th-century winery, which has been carefully restored and beautifully integrated into its spectacular surroundings thanks to the use of natural materials.
Here you will stay in a poetic atmosphere of days gone by, where each room has a unique history. Warmth and elegance of the past are combined with clean, modern lines of today, resulting in timeless luxury and, above all, a serene ambiance.
Country House Villadorata has eight rooms, a beautiful organically shaped swimming pool, and a fantastic restaurant (exclusive to guests, only open for lunch and dinner) overlooking a horizon that ends in the sea. Wake up with a relaxing Sicilian-style breakfast served on the hotel's patio, a perfect start to the day filled with organized wine tastings and cooking courses. Tour the winding country roads or enjoy the tranquility on the domain.
The estate has three unique residences - Ulivo (an exclusive suite with private pool), Palmento (3 Deluxe rooms in the beautiful courtyard) and Bouganville (4 rooms with a fantastic view of the surrounding hills). All rooms are spacious and tasteful, meticulously decorated with a high-quality finishing. They feature wooden beamed ceilings, stone floors, and minimalist décor, except for a few quirky details - such as a modern lime-green armchair and old-fashioned tiles in the bathroom. French doors open onto a private balcony or patio, where you can admire the view from a butterfly chair.
The boutique hotel is only 4 km from Noto, the pearl of Sicilian Baroque. This southeastern tip of the island is known for its historical and authentic towns: Syracuse, charming full of art and history; Modica, a jewel on the slopes of the Iblei Mountains and Ragusa Ibla, picturesque with stunning views. Next to old towns you will find idyllic sandy beaches, like hidden in the Nature Reserve Vendicari (at 15 km), and a little further on in the seaside resort of San Lorenzo. Make sure you are back at sunset; the views from the estate are phenomenal.
