    Torre Don Virgilio Country Hotel is a historic property that dates back to 1600 situated in south-east Sicily. Surrounded by olive trees, carob trees and Mediterranean plants this charming and traditional countryside boutique hotel has the perfect blend of nature and history. The land around the nearby town of Modica is close to the sea and filled with history and tradition.

    White sandy beaches are within easy reach and there are plenty of sites for culture vultures to feast their eyes on during their stay. Torre Don Virgilio is situated in the Val di Noto, an area that's a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Families and small pets are welcome.


    A typically Sicilian buffet breakfast is served in Torre Don Virgilio's striking dining room. A feast of local products including eggs, meats, cheeses, jams, honey and homemade cakes and cookies will welcome you in the morning along with the aroma of fresh ground coffee.

    We think you'll love simply relaxing by the pool (seasonal opening) surrounded by ancient olive trees. But, if you really want to make the most of your stay in this gorgeous part of southern Sicily head out and discover the territory of Val di Noto. Horseriding amidst archaeological sites can be arranged as can trips, tours and tastings of local wines and oils. Hop on one of the complimentary mountain bikes and discover the surrounding countryside. 

    Sicily has one of the highest concentration of World Heritage Sites and the cities are filled with stunning architecture, art and archaeological sites. The pretty town of Modica, an important testimony to the Sicilian Baroque period and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is 10 minutes away and there are plenty of little fishing villages to visit where you can see ancient fishing traditions still in place.

    Visiting some of the beautiful white beaches is a must before you head home. Marina di Modica, Pozzallo and Sampieri are just a few of them that are within a 30-minute car drive. Boat trips with or without skipper (recommended), offroad 4 x 4 excursions to Mount Etna and visits to Sicilian wine estates and chocolate workshops are just a few of the fantastic and varied activities that can be arranged.
