Arrival day: Any Car hire: Recommended
Located on the edge of the pretty seaside town of Marina di Ragusa, this original almond store has been transformed into chic and very comfortable apartments and B&B accommodation set in beautiful gardens just a few minutes away from some super sandy beaches along the Ragusa coastline.
The walled gardens give no idea from the road of the treat that lies within – the layout of the residence has been perfectly coordinated with pretty gardens full of indigenous Mediterranean plants and a mass of sweet-smelling herbs, a fabulous pool for swimming at any time of the year due to it being heated, a separate children’s pool and grassy play area along with the apartments set in a two-storey group around a sheltered courtyard where a delicious breakfast is served should you wish to start your day in style!
The apartments are on two levels - the ground floor is home to a spacious dining/living room complete with kitchen (two ring electric hob and fridge), shower room and large glass doors that open on to a private furnished patio area. A staircase leads up to the first floor where there is a further bedroom and bathroom, some with a lounge area as well where a double sofa bed will accommodate 1 or 2 more guests, big or small. Naturally upstairs there is another balcony for relaxing and enjoying the views. The apartments can also be used as a studio by just accessing the ground floor level or as a B&B room by just using the first-floor level – a simple but great idea allowing guests to choose the best option for their requirements.
The pool is heated with solar panels and is a delight, there are plenty of sunbeds and shady seating areas dotted around to enjoy some downtime after visiting some of the fascinating cultural sites and towns in the area. The pool bar serves cool drinks and fruit juices plus light lunches throughout the day and the small reading room has a selection of books and local guides to browse should you wish to escape the heat of the day in a peace and quiet. Breakfast is made up of a rich choice of fresh fruits, local delicacies and home-made jams and biscuits and may be enjoyed in the pretty breakfast room or in the warm morning air in the courtyard.
With a choice of culture, Sicilian food and wine, beaches and spectacular drives on the doorstep, La Scibina offers superb accommodation in a pretty much perfect location.

Very nice set up. Lovely big rooms and very nice pool. Again staff very helpful and delicious breakfast! Staff very proud of Sicilian heritage and only serving Sicilian products. Very easy to walk to restaurants, which was a plus.

A fantastic little hotel, beautiful sea views, just 5 minutes walk to the sea. Really clean and very stylish, just that bit different. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. Lovely breakfasts. They could improve lunch/poolside offering maybe but this is a very minor issue. Pool/public areas also very nice and some days very hard to leave! Would highly recommend. We really loved this place, a great suggestion from Essential Italy. Very stylish, simple and perfect for relaxation.
