Hi everyone, my name is Giulia. I'm Italian and live mostly in Phoenix, AZ.USA.
Ever since I was a teenager, I had the dream to completely remodel, in a stylish way, the house in which I grew up in with my parents and to share our amazing view, our food and culture with many people.
Our B&B has two large panoramic terraces overlooking a natural oasis, the San Leonardo Valley and the Iblei Mountains.
The unique location of the B & B, scored 9.7/10, is perfectly situated on the main access street, leading straight to Ragusa Ibla's Baroque Center, where the majestic St. George Cathedral is atop a lovely slanted, uphill plaza.
Ragusa and its surroundings are part of UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITES LIST.
Ragusa has also been chosen for its characteristic nature and beauty as a movie location for many films and tv series, i.e. to name few: ” Il Commissario Montalbano” partly filmed in Ibla, my neighborhood, or “ The Leopard” w/ Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale and Alain Delon, filmed in the Castello di Donnafugata, recommended site to visit.
There's no need to worry about parking since everything is walking distance. Most of Ragusa's historical destinations and commodities are all a mere 150 meters away. Everything in this idyllic Baroque town is just a few steps away. Taste the best gelato, walk around romantic, winding narrow streets and stairs, or take the city sightseeing trolley and then relax in the beautiful Ibla Gardens with their scenic open view of surrounding mountains, also easy to hike if you are an active type. Enjoy Sicilian traditional cuisine in the many surrounding restaurants or take a trip to the seaside golden beaches and the new Yachts Marina, only 15 miles away.
Cooking lessons may be offered in English on request, in May and June 2016
