    Romantic boutique hotel and luxury lodges in an 18th century wine farm near Noto, Sicily

    Country House Villadorata is a charming and small-scale boutique hotel in Sicily, situated between the baroque city of Noto and the coast. This former wine estate is an oasis of tranquility amidst the beautiful landscape of Val di Noto, and the ideal place to unwind with your loved one after a year of hard work.

    Whether you're seeking a no-nonsense beach vacation or daily excursions filled with interesting culture, Sicily has something for everyone. From this special House of Hideaways accommodation, Noto, one of the most remarkable towns on the Italian island, lies at your feet, with the sea and Pantalo beach within easy reach.

    During your vacation at this unique boutique hotel, you can fill your days with various enjoyable excursions, but doing nothing here is also perfectly fine. Simply enjoy each other and the beautiful surroundings. Country House Villadorata is nestled among vineyards, orange and almond trees, and almost everywhere you look, you have views of nature and the garden adorned with colorful bougainvillea.

    What truly makes this small-scale boutique hotel unique is that it's housed in an 18th-century wine estate lovingly restored and transformed into a luxurious and modern holiday retreat by owner Cristina Summe. Although the furniture and colors in the interior are contemporary, the atmosphere of bygone eras can still be felt and seen in small details.

    On the grounds of the boutique hotel, it's wonderfully peaceful with a relaxed atmosphere. It's perfect for delightful morning and evening walks, a yoga class, or meditation session. You can also grab your towel and relax on one of the sun loungers around the communal pool or participate in a wine tasting or an Italian cooking workshop.

    Prefer a bit more privacy and a pool all to yourself? Then book a exclusive and charming Suite where you can cocoon in comfort. In addition to a spacious pool with a terrace under the olive trees, this detached hideaway features its own entrance, a modern bedroom with a luxurious bed, and a designer bathroom with a Travertine bathtub, double sinks, and premium toiletries. Now, isn't that luxurious?

    The place for culture lovers

    In this pristine and authentic area of Sicily, green olive groves and rolling hills alternate with characteristic small villages, offering culture enthusiasts a haven. The baroque city and UNESCO heritage site of Noto is just a five-minute drive away by car, while the archaeological site of Syracuse can be reached by car in 40 minutes.

    Luxury suites and lodges with private swimming pool

    Country House Villadorata has several unique residences spread across the grounds. First of all, you will find a number of exclusive suites and lodges with private swimming pools where plenty of privacy is guaranteed. The suites are equipped with every luxury and offer a breathtaking view of the surrounding hills and are completely detached. Ideal for a honeymoon or romantic holiday!

    In the courtyard of Villadorata you will find the Palmento with three Deluxe rooms and Bouganville, with four spacious rooms, all with a tasteful and comfortable interior. Each room has its own charm and is slightly different. However, they all offer a high-quality finish and details from the past are still visible here and there, such as the wooden beamed ceilings and stone floors.

    Taste the Italian cuisine

    In Restaurant Orti Villadorata you will experience a gastronomic experience and the ingredients from the garden and the surrounding area play the leading role on the plate. Colorful seasonal vegetables, freshly caught octopus and other local fish and meat dishes are beautifully presented and are sure to tantalize your taste buds. Not only dinner, but also breakfast is a party. Enjoy good coffee, hot sandwiches, fruit, various yoghurts and an egg the way you like it.

    Discover the cultural treasures of Sicily

    Sicily is like a big open-air museum. There are beautiful cultural treasures to admire all over the island. This is also the case in the city of Noto, where impressive gold-colored palazzi, churches and other buildings from the Baroque period adorn the streets. If you take a walk through Noto, you are, as it were, taking a walk through time.



    Country House Villadorata is located in the Sicilian countryside on the east side of the island, close to the baroque city of Noto and the archaeological site of Siracusa.
