Mangiabove has been lovingly restored by its owners to create a fabulous group of apartments and bedrooms. The farmhouse occupies an enviable position in the countryside above Marina di Ragusa with splendid sea views. The refurbishment of the original farmhouse and outbuildings has been carried out with great sensitivity and many features have been retained from the original buildings.
Iggy, the proud owner of Mangiabove, has used his extensive experience of working in the travel business to create a wonderful oasis of calm and tranquillity and offers a service which we believe you’ll find hard to beat in any five-star hotel.
