Sicily, just the place for tourists.
Relais Parco Cavalonga, the best way to enjoy the authentic country life and a peaceful and natural atmosphere.
Verdant Mediterranean shrubs, gentle hills with ancient olive groves and carob trees, green meadows traced by the typical dry-stone walls of this area: welcome to the splendid valley surrounding the beautiful Parco Cavalonga Relais, an ancient Seventeenth-Century house that lies within an enchanting landscape, surrounded just by nature, with the sea in the background. Authentic country life and a peaceful and natural atmosphere is what you find here, as you enjoy a swim in one of the two infinity pools or a walk among gardens and botanical paths.
Fifteen harmonious and comfortable rooms are available, all with top-quality details and furniture and private batrhoom: your sleep will be absolutely perfect within these beds, surrounded by peace and quiet. Comfort is great and relax is the main feature of the relais, with plenty of pleasant corners – such as the equipped courtyard, perfect for sipping an afternoon tea or an aperitif, as well as the cozy sitting room and the breakfast room.
The estate has a wide (18 hectares) natural park rich in carob trees and olive groves crossed by picturesque dry-stone walls: walking around will let guests relax and enjoy the delicate breeze coming from the sea and merging with the countryside atmosphere. The two infinity pools are carved in the rocks, and guests can also enjoy the relaxing Jacuzzi.
Five types of room are available: guests can choose the one that best suits their needs. Every room provides top-quality standards and beautiful refined furniture. All rooms have air conditioning, sat tv, a bathroom with a large shower, mini-bar, safe box and a double bed (or two single beds on request).

Just 15 minutes away from the peaceful and beautiful valley where the Relais is located lies another charming valley - so wonderful that it has been listed as UNESCO protected site: the Noto valley, with its baroque towns (Ragusa Ibla, Noto, Modica and Scicli to name a few). The incredible harmonious architecture of these towns is really a must-see, from the stunning wrought-iron balconies in Noto to the beautiful San Giorgio cathedral in Modica - daily trips will be really delightful, and always accompanied by a taste of the typical local delicacies. The castle of Donnafugata is just a five-minute drive from the Relais: after a visit to the castle, you'll have the chance to enjoy excellent meals in its restaurants and elegant cafés.
As for daily trips, this area has plenty more to offer: archaeological sites such as the one in Syracuse and Selinunte, as well as the world famous Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, or charming hamlets such as Taormina. The baroque city centre of Catania is a UNESCO world heritage site as well, and Mt. Etna is also within reach: this is Sicily, a place where you can ski on the slopes of an active volcano in the morning and go sailing in the Mediterranean sea in the afternoon!South-Eastern Sicily also offers a wonderful seashore, with miles and miles of the finest white sand, beautiful coves and idyllic scenarios. This area still has many unspoilt corners, which gives you the chance to choose your own "private" beach almost everyday: the closest one is Kamarina, but we also recommend the delightful bay of Punta Secca where sunsets are really stunning and you get to see the house of Commissario Montalbano - a famous tv series based on Andrea Camilleri's books. The sand is pure, and waters are clean: Marina di Ragusa, a beautiful beach just 40 minutes far from the relais, has been awarded with the "Blue flag" for its clean waters and environment; this seaside resort is also perfect for all those who enjoy a lively nightlife. And if you wish to discover more, you can take a daily hydroplane from Pozzallo to the island of Malta. Sports enthusiast won't be disappointed as well. Two golf courses are just seven kilometers away, and there are plenty of other possibilities - from trekking to cycling tours and horse riding, that can be organised near the relais or in the Aleppo Pine Nature Reserve nearby.
