Total focus and dedication to the best Italian hospitality at all times is the philosophy at Masseria della Volpe, a luxury boutique hotel and spa in Noto, Sicily. Not only is the team at this Chic Retreat dedicated to providing the best of the best, their concept of wellbeing extends to the environment, ensuring that all energy used is ecological and sustainable.
Ancient olive and carob trees provide shade in the garden and by the pool bearing witness to the agricultural history and traditions of the area. Whilst the spa offers relaxation, the floodlit tennis court, volleyball court and gym are complemented by nearby golf, surfing, riding, mountain biking and diving, making a stay at Masseria della Volpe the perfect Sicilian holiday experience for all of the family.
Culture vultures can make the most of the archaeological sites and trails in southeast Sicily and day trips can be organised to visit ancient treasures further afield.
The Codarossa restaurant at Masseria della Volpe is open all year round and during the warmer months guests can dine al fresco on the terrace overlooking the Noto valley and swimming pool.
Organic produce, olive oil from the estate's olive trees and citrus fruits from the orchard bring out the best flavours in the mouth-watering Sicilian dishes which are freshly prepared each day. Breakfast is a feast for the senses and includes homemade breads, regional cheeses and meats, homemade jams and traditional cakes.
All of the 22 air-conditioned rooms and suites at Masseria della Volpe are bright and spacious and decorated with local Sicilian materials including handmade tiles, local stones and fabrics. A choice of pillows, complimentary WiFi, flat screen TV and sound systems all come as standard across all room types and spacious terraces, balconies and private gardens all offer stunning panoramic views of the surrounding countryside and the sea beyond.
If travelling with children choose one of the Family Suites which boast 3 bedrooms, a private rooftop terrace and a terrace overlooking the pool. The Luxury Suites are perfect for a family of four with 2 en-suite bedrooms and a big living room, or for the more modest budget the Classic Rooms are luxury on a smaller scale; they are stylish and provide guests with every modern comfort. Honeymooners or couples looking for a romantic break should consider the Suite with its own private roof terrace.
The pool, the spa and the restaurant were all built with locally-sourced white stone which has existed for centuries in southeast Sicily, and the lava stone used in the spa was quarried from the slopes of Mount Etna.
All of the spa products, as well as the soaps and cleansers used throughout the hotel, are made with 100% organic natural extracts. The spa is small, but exclusively for hotel guests. The hammam, Jacuzzi, ice fountain and waterfall will transform your sense of wellbeing before you return home. Eastern massage techniques combined with western science draw out and dispel any stresses you may arrive with and leave you refreshed and relaxed in the body, mind and soul.
The outdoor heated pool is 20m long and is surrounded by comfortable loungers and umbrellas. There is a shallow pool in a relaxation area where sun-lovers can tan themselves whilst being cooled by the water. The children's area has a great selection of colourful games with different levels to suit all ages.
For the active there is plenty to do nearby including riding, diving, windsurfing, golf, fishing and kitesurfing. On site there is a floodlit astro tennis court, volleyball court, bocce court and a small, but perfectly formed gym.
Day trips to nearby archaeological sites can be arranged for those who love history and culture. Chocolate-lovers will want to head to Modica, the Sicilian 'home of chocolate' - there is a chocolate festival held every year in December.
