Ivy House is a beautifully restored townhouse in the historical centre of Ragusa in Sicily. Via Roma which is the main artery of Ragusa is 40 paces away. It is ideally situated to explore the area, bearing in mind that we are in the heart of Commissario Montalbano country. There are many personalised details - paintings by the owner's father and friends, hand-crocheted borders on the bedspreads etc. The stairs are steep so these apartments are unfortunately unsuitable for the disabled.

There is a self-contained flat on each of 3 floors, two with balconies overlooking a very quiet street, and the third is brightly illuminated by 4 sky lights.

Each flat has its own bathroom (shower not bath tub) and fully equipped kitchen.

Each flat has air conditioning / heating, TV, washing machine, iron and ironing board, microwave oven, hair dryer etc.

Sheets and towels are provided, and also beach towels on request.

There is a €1 per person per night Council holiday tax to be paid on arrival.

The Sicily region

Sicily is an incredibly varied island - from the lunar landscape on Mount Etna, to the different beaches - golden sand, black lava rock or shingle.

There are wonderful churches, Greek and Roman archaeological sites and museums to visit.

The fresh fish is unrivalled and of course frush fruit and vegetables of the season.

The wine of this area is becoming more well-known - some recent visitors from Canada were amazed that we can still but a bottle of wine for around £1.20


The Province of Ragusa is an unknown and vastly underrated area, although nowattracting more visitors who have admired it on the TV series "Commissario Montalbano". Ragusa, together with Ibla and further afield Noto and Syracuse, are UNESCO World Heritage sites for their splendid Baroque Architecture.

There are beautiful sandy beaches which are never crowded even at the height of the summer season or inland fiels sporting a lonely carrob tree to shade the cattle, boundried by endless lines of beautiful white stone walls.

There are many beautiful churches to visit and of course archaeological sites and museums (one just round the corner from Ivy House).

The local food is outstanding - the icecream at the "Divino" in Ibla, the "scacce" a kind of savoury strudel tipical only to this region, the wonderful fresh fish together with the fruit and vegetables of the season, and of course the local wines.

Throughout the year there are various festivals and concerts.

"warm welcome"

This property was such good value that we thought there would be something wrong with it but there really wasn't. The location and apartment were exactly as described. The apartment is small but … More
