NICK purchased this farmhouse in 2006

Why NICK chose Ragusa

Warm and friendly people. Beautiful climate with an abundance of fresh cheap food always available. A truly unspoilt part of the world yet to be discovered.

Excellent restaurants including 'Agritourismo' type where a seven course meal, using only the freshest local ingredients are used, can be obtained for less than £14 per head. Typically and locally, a pizza cooked in a log burning oven can be bought for four people at the same price.

The local markets and supermarkets offer the highest quality produce- sourced locally - at incredibly low prices.

By car. 5 mins from town and in the opposite direction 5 mins from clean, free sandy beaches ideal for families.

Good base to explore the area.

Major tourist attractions within a days excursion.

What makes this farmhouse unique


Property is close to everything- beaches, shopping, restaurants, nightlife, beautiful countryside. A beautiful 12m x 6m swimming pool on-site for renters use only. The residence offers peace and tranquility with just a distant noise of a neighbours dog barking and a cockerel that crows at 3 in the afternoon for reasons only known to itself. Wide open skies-no tall buildings or hotels to block the views. No ambient light in the evenings which allows for a truly spectacular view of the milky way at night and in the summer shooting stars can be seen. Agricultural area-unspoilt and tranquil yet close to Town, beaches and attractions.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just to let you know we arrived home safely. We got to the airport so early that the car hire place was still closed so we had to leave it and cross our fingers

Many thanks for all your help and enjoy the rest of the summer

Best wishes
