Balate Dimora in the center is located in the heart of Ragusa Ibla, a few minutes from Piazza Duomo dominated by the imposing church of San Giorgio, and exactly in the ancient district of the "Sangiovannari" once inhabited by bourgeois, artisans, farmers and massari. That is, men actively engaged in the grain trade and land administration.
Ibla, the historic heart of Ragusa, has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites since 2002. And it is also famous for being the set of the famous fiction "Il Commissario Montalbano".
The building, a small bourgeois residence, dates back to the end of the 19th century, completely renovated respecting the original architecture and materials typical of the place. In our project we wanted to enhance antique objects and furniture and that is why the concept of reuse is expressed throughout the house, the infected rooms and common areas are furnished with completely restored Sicilian modern and vintage pieces.
We have created a style that embraces modernity with the historicity of the place to create a hospitable and familiar atmosphere, all of which makes our small home a unique Sicilian place and perfect for your stay in Ibla. The property has three bedrooms: two doubles and one quadruple, located on three different levels so as to guarantee our guests privacy and comfort. Each room has a private bathroom, balconies and \ or terrace with panoramic views over Ibla and the Santa Domenica valley.
The rooms are equipped with every comfort: air conditioning, heating, LED-TV, courtesy set, hairdryer and WI-FI.
The structure also boasts two common areas on two different floors, where you can devote yourself to reading texts in different languages or relaxing.
On the ground floor there is a spacious and modern well-equipped kitchen for guests to use.
In addition, we can recommend our guests personalized guided tours to discover not only Ragusa Ibla, but also the whole fascinating Iblea area.
