Borgo Alveria is a small boutique hotel in Noto Antica, close to Syracuse, Sicily. The hotel is rich in history; set on the site of an ancient monastery, the hotel building was previously a farmhouse dating back to the 18th-century. After painstaking restoration, its authentic charm continues today, revealing the amber-coloured stone of the original farmhouse.
Surrounded by orchards, gardens and 19-hectares of land, the hotel is just 700 m from the Porta Aurea of Noto Antica. Inside, elegant contemporary features blend with the original features to create a romantic effect, while outside, guests can enjoy the outdoor pool and solarium.
Borgo Alveria welcomes families.
A delicious breakfast buffet with homemade cakes, biscuits, croissants, jams, local cheeses, yoghurt, eggs and cold cuts is laid out in the breakfast room each day (extra charges apply). For more substantial meals you’ll have to venture out of the Borgo. There are several excellent restaurants in Noto, a 30-minute drive from the hotel.
There are 12 individually-designed rooms at Borgo Alveria, decorated with a mix of Sicilian antiques and contemporary design furniture. Rooms have a variety of mirrors, chandeliers and dashes of fuchsia pink and lime green silks that offset the original stone work and lava stone floors.
This small boutique hotel has a lovely outdoor swimming pool & solarium where guests can relax and watch the sunset over the orchards. Set on 19-hectares of part landscaped, part wild estate, Borgo Alveria is a wonderful place for nature walks or a day reading in one of the colourful hammocks.
Mount Alveria has a rich history, with the ruins of the ancient city of Noto, which was destroyed in the 17th-century earthquake, being just one of the many attractions. You can also see the archeological evidence of the Sicilian necropolis, and ruins from the Hellenistic, Pre-Christian, Jewish, Byzantine, Arabian, Norman Renaissance and Baroque eras.
Guests can also visit the present-day Noto Antica, just 500m away, or take a trip to Noto town, which is just a 30-minute drive from this Chic Retreat. Take a drive down the southeast coast to discover the famous Baroque towns of Scicli and Modica, the Cava Grande Natural Reserve and the stunning beaches of Oasi Faunistica of Vendicari.
