Eremo della Giubiliana (5*L) - Marina di Ragusa (RG)

Eremo della Giubiliana, a charming hotel set in a historical residence, a few kilometers south of Ragusa, to the south of Tunisi, in the Eastern Lands of a different Sicily, the one of the Hyblean plateau and pristine nature, among carob forests and stone walls. Very old thick white stone walls surround and protect the courtyards and inner structure. Its white tower stands tall and overlooks the plateau that gently slopes towards the sea and there are miles and miles of coast as far as the eye can see. Across, on clear days, which are common in these latitudes, you can see the island of Malta and the African Coast, a never-ending horizon steeped in mystique and history.

The central part of the fortified Eremo was restored keeping strictly as it was in the past, also in it’s original materials, its ancient pitch stone and limestone floorings and its furnishings have been maintained. The type of warm welcome is the one expected for an old Sicilian countryside residence, with its simple but refined ceremonial. It will get you involved by immediately making you feel at home. This is also due to the land owners direct management supported by a caring and professional staff, which guarantees the guests a discreet familiarity.
The rooms have been converted from the friars' cells, and have all the comforts, telephone, TV, air conditioning and private bathrooms, furnished with old Sicilian style furniture and original household goods which make them quite different from the usual hotel bedrooms.
The Eremo has Classic double rooms, spacious Superior rooms,Deluxe rooms, Suites and stone Cottages belonging to the estate.
The great arched hall of the ancient refectory used by the Knights of the Order of Saint John is the evocative setting for the Don Eusebio Restaurant. The hall opens wide its French windows towards the South to reveal a spectacular view of parkland strewn with twisted olive trees, set on a backdrop of the Mediterranean sea and the distant Maltese isles.
Paintings by 16th century Sicilian artists, ancient kneading troughs and a long refectory table complete the furnishings of this refined and suggestive ambience, which predisposes the guest to experience a journey back in time to the bygone flavours enjoyed by local landed gentry.
On mild summer evenings the restaurant seats its guests in the antique Hortus Conclusus garden where the air is scented with Mediterranean aromas and the sky is illuminated by the constellations of the southern hemisphere (the Eremo della Giubiliana is situated further south than Tunisia).
