Relais Torre Marabino is a charming new boutique hotel in Sicily's Ragusan countryside near the city of Ispica and some of Sicily's most beautiful beaches. This new 7 room Chic Retreat is part of a working organic farm (Natural Iblea) which has been in place since 1988 and which grows some of the best produce to be found in Sicily including tomatoes, courgettes, potatoes, carrots, lemons and oranges.
The soft local stone of the original building offers a cool elegance to the interiors, while the lush gardens, featuring ancient olive trees, hanging vines and perfect lawns offer plenty of shady areas for relaxation. The stunning pool, the laid back atmosphere and the gourmet restaurant make it difficult for guests to tear themselves away to visit the fascinating Baroque towns in the area or to sample the large selection of sandy beaches nearby. With views across the park, the swimming pool and Whirlpool is perfectly situated to make the most of the sunshine and also offer a little shade. Relais Torre Marabino has its own wine cellar 'Marabino'. Still in its relative infancy, the winery was created by the owners to reflect the authentic tastes and experiences of Sicily. Every label has been created by the owner drawing on his childhood memories reflecting his passion for life and music.
A play area with swings and a slide complete Torre Marabino making it suitable for families with younger children.
The area of land that surrounds Relais Torre Marabino is rich in local Sicilian produce and the seasonal menu reflects these flavours and traditions. The Moresca restaurant is set in Marabino Tower, located between Ispica and Pozzallo village. This excellent, highly respected restaurant spills out onto the outside terraces during the summer months, offering an enchanting al fresco dining experience. Breakfast is a magnificent Italian feast and is a great way to start the day under the vine-covered trellis.
Each of the 7 charming en-suite rooms at Relais Torre Marabino has taken its name from the Marabino wine cellar and most of them enjoy lovely views across the surrounding countryside. The rooms have been decorated using local materials from the area and are equipped and furnished with the modern traveller in mind including Sat TV, kitchen, minibar, air-conditioning and internet. Many of the rooms can be made up as triple or even quadruple rooms making them ideal for families and friends. The 3 suites have a mezzanine sleeping area and a living area below. The 3 superior rooms and the standard room are large and spacious with wonderful views towards the sea or countryside.
