Tenuta Cammarana (Historical Residences) Ragusa
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
In 1778, the year in which he decided to build his hunting lodge on the high plain of Ibleo, just beyond the walls of Ragusa, Antonio Sortino Trono could not have imagined that, centuries later, his Tenuta Cammarana would have been transformed into one of Sicily's most exclusive holiday destinations.
Places like this are, indeed, a rarity. They are rare and precious too in the way that they are able to transmit both the simple charm of the area's typical rural homes and the elegance of an aristocratic country manor.
The countryside surrounding Tenuta Cammarana is still lined by old, dry stone walls and dotted with ancient olive and carob trees, vegetable gardens and spectacular prickly pears, all of which testify to the ancient farming traditions of rural Sicily.
From the early hours of the morning the locals continue to till the fertile black soil of Ragusa, and produce the gastronomic delicacies which fill the shelves of the farm shop.
Seen from afar, Tenuta Cammarana dominates the countryside of Ibleo. The succession of Arabian and antique rose gardens, small courtyards and centuries old prickly pears, seem to have been custom designed to entice visitors into the magical world of the Tenuta (the garden is the first in Sicily to be included on the prestigious "Il Parco Più Bello" list).
Inside the imposing walls of the building, it is easy to catch a glimpse of the patrician past of this period residence: elements of Sicilian baroque architecture and antiques adding aristocratic luster to bedrooms which are furnished with the simple wooden furniture typical of the area's more modest country homes.
Not only do guests staying at Tenuta Cammarana have the opportunity to experience a vacation within the walls of an ancient Sicilian residence, they are also able to visit some of the island's most fascinating tourist attractions.
Within a 6km radius of the property, visitors pass from the countryside to the sea; from the landscapes of the Ibleo high plain to those of the Sicilian coast; from the Pino d'Aleppo and River Irminio nature reserves to the beaches of Puntasecca. What is more, the Donnafugata Castle, and the baroque cities of Modica and Ragusa are all just a short drive away.
