Parco Cavalonga is situated on a hillside between Ragusa and the sea at Santa Croce Camerina in the midst of the Iblei mountains, which is a veritable treat for nature lovers. The icing on the cake is that it is not far the great cultural cities such as Modica, Ragusa and Scicli in the south of Sicily so you can easily combine both culture, nature and beach.
When you enter into the grand estate of Parco Cavalonga you will feel like you have stepped back in time. We are sure you will find the atmosphere at this historic farm estate both soothing and tranquil. The character buildings which house the apartments are dotted around the estate in certain areas all with surrounding greenery, botanical gardens with ancient trees and shrubs. There are charismatic windy gravel roads around the estate which link up the buildings with the pools and communal areas.
Both these pools have been thoughtfully and artistically designed and positioned so that you can enjoy a very scenic aspect of the estate whilst bathing and lounging. Relaxing on the spacious terraces on the comfortable furniture on days between sightseeing trips is a must in a place like this. It goes without saying that a place like this also has a wonderful restaurant, serving fine Sicilian cuisine of course with seating inside and outside in a cosy courtyard setting.
The houses have been renovated with original materials (cast iron, stone and lava stone and woodwork) combined with a stylish decor. Each house has an independent entrance, air conditioning, satellite television, a dishwasher and a private garden or terrace with table and chairs to enjoy your meals.
As well as the hiking trails within the 18-hectare park, you will also find endless natural splendour amongst the Iblean landscapes surrounding Cavalonga with its many natural parks and archaeoligical sites. The Iblea region is also renowned for its spectacular Baroque towns and cities, many of which are UNESCO Heritage sites. Worth discovering are Ragusa (14km), Modica (27km) and Scicli (35 km). The nearest beach can be found at Punta Secca approx. 17km away.
