Arrival day: Saturday Car hire: Recommended
This apartment is full of Sicilian charm with some of the 19th century stone walls exposed and lovely wooden rustic furniture. Set in the Cavalonga Country Park amidst the beautiful Sicilian countryside, the Olive Tree is located 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 apartment is so-called as the most magnificent and enormous ancient olive tree sits in the garden just by the main entrance – a truly beautiful piece of nature to gaze at as you come and go. Laid out over 2 floors, the apartment is home to a comfy lounge with open fireplace, satellite TV and a sofa bed accommodating one person. The country kitchen opens out on to a small and sunny courtyard with dining table and chairs under some bamboo canes providing shade during the hotter parts of the day. Leading off the lounge, there is a twin bedroom with en-suite shower room. A wooden staircase leads from the lounge up to the first floor where you will find a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a small terrace.
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!
