Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The website promises something special; the reality more than delivers. This is a stunning property in a prime location overlooking the modern harbour and only footsteps away from glorious, safe sandy beaches as well as little cafes, bars and shops lining the seafront promenade and Marina di Ragusa's heart - the main Piazza. Stay here and you will not be disappointed. The apartment is creatively designed and furnished to provide flexible living space with the "Wow!" factor. Enjoy the sunshine and al fresco dining on the beautiful balcony day or night; keep the doors wide open and relax around the dining table; spread out round the huge coffee table or take yourself through the astonishing wooden doorway into the privacy of the dayroom beyond. Stay with friends or family, have fun yet also find your own space. Ambience and views will more than keep you happy. The standard of cleanliness is top notch and everything a holidaymaker might want or need has been anticipated, even down to big beach towels. Room in the suitcase for more clothes/books next year then! Gunter's greeting, support and generous box of local produce are above and beyond. What is there to do? Try breakfast on the balcony and afterwards a stroll to the Piazza for shopping, maybe a coffee, cake or ice-cream or simply soak up the atmosphere and people-watch - the locals are friendly and engaging. Explore the little streets around the square, make your way back home, seek sun or shade - whatever you fancy - followed by a lazy lunch. Late afternoon is a perfect time to head to the beach. Marina di Ragusa is the favourite resort for families from Ragusa itself. They love to gather at the water's edge to sunbathe, chat and paddle. Not many foreign holidaymakers here and plenty of room for a swim or warm bath in September! Evening time, eat out if you will - there are lots of little restaurants to suit each pocket and taste - but nothing beats staying in, watching the comings and goings in the tiny Piazza Scala Trapanese below and along Via San Remo. Sunset over the Marina is to die for! Feel the pull of the main Piazza once more? Find a table, a drop of what you fancy then soak up the sociable Sicilian way of life. Further afield, easy and cheap bus rides take you to Punta Secca of Inspector Montalbano fame or for a full day try the hilltop town of Ragusa Ibla for stunning scenery, architecture and restaurants. More energetic? Water sports and bike hire are nearby. In short - super!

A top quality apartment in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Aurora in Marina di Ragusa. The apartment is furnished to a high specification, and includes everything that you might need, including air conditioning in every room for when the temperature rises (it was 34 degrees when we left at the end of July). Everything was very clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers were spacious and suitably powerful.

The outstanding feature of the apartment is its wonderful balcony which provides panoramic views of the marina. We spent many a happy hour sitting on the balcony reading, eating or watching the world go by. The balcony overlooks a square which can get quite busy at night but this in no way detracted from our experience. The evening is the busiest time of the day, with families promenading along the seafront and teenagers riding around on mopeds, and its fun to have a ring-side seat to witness Marina di Ragusa at night.

The location really could not be better when it comes to views, access to the beach and restaurants, plus there is a bakery and various supermarkets within reasonably easy walking distance (15 minutes), although when it gets hot any distance seems too far. There is a bike hire shop below the apartment so if you want to go further afield you can rent a bike for €15 for the day. There are cycle routes along the sea front in both directions.

Guenter was a very welcoming and thoughtful host. On first arriving at the apartment at 10.15pm it was a lovely surprise to find that he had provided us with some complementary local produce and a nice bottle of prosecco, so that we didn't have to worry about finding a shop on our first night.

We would heartily recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a relaxing and comfortable holiday by the coast.

Fantastic spacious, tasteful apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. Everything is of the highest quality from the comfortable beds to the coffee machine. We were delighted with the welcome box of oranges apricots etc all grown locally. The host was charming and helpful in giving local information about where to eat, shop and visit. Although a map detailing this information would be good.

The views towards the harbour are exquisite and the apartment is a step away from good bars, restaurants and sandy beaches. We enjoyed sipping wine on the balcony and we hired bikes from the shop below the property. Parking is easy in the square or street. The settlement of Marina di Rugusa itself is very much a boating/sunbathing venue but it is close to the lovely baroque towns for which the area is famous.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 2 kids) had an amazing and very relaxing stay in this - very - beautiful and fully equipped apartment. We enjoyed the stylish interior design, the magnificent view, the very convenient household organisation, the proximity to the beach, the evening on the balcony over one or two bottles, etc etc. Guenter welcomed us and even had some initial food (and wine!) supplies for us, which was much appreciated after a very long and delayed trip from the Middle East. We will be back!
