Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
Gelsomino is a privately located apartment situated in a fantastic countryside setting in the beautiful Cavalonga Country Park, just 21 kilometres from the coastline at Marina di Ragusa. The pretty gardens are filled with olive and carob trees and the park is also home to the Relais Cavalonga Hotel with an excellent restaurant on your doorstep should you wish to take an evening off from the cooking!
The original building was one of the farmhouses on the estate and careful renovations have ensured that the best features have all been retained. The apartment is set out on two floors and has a super private terrace that overlooks the pretty gardens of the park plus its’ own little courtyard.
The ground floor is home to a spacious lounge furnished in dark reds and greys complimenting the rustic stone walls. The sofa bed here will accommodate one extra guest. A good sized country-style kitchen, equipped with fridge, hob, dishwasher and washing machine, opens out on to the great terrace, furnished of course for outside dining. Leading off the lounge is a twin bedroom and en-suite shower room and the staircase leads up to the second bedroom with double bed and en-suite bathroom.
A super infinity pool sits in the grounds and is perfect for some gentle lengths or some dedicated sunbathing. This delightful location may tempt you to stay put but we strongly recommend you visit some of the wonderful towns in the area, such as Noto, Modica and Ragusa during your stay, safe in the knowledge that you have a great place to return to. Make sure you are back for the magnificent sunsets – the perfect end to a perfect day!
